Argentinian President Cristina Fernandez sent out a blitz of 31 tweets to urge President Barack Obama to include the issue of the Buenos Aires Jewish Center AMIA bombing in its bilateral talks with Iran.
The tweets posted Monday night from the president’s official Twitter account also mentioned the pressure that she feels from U.S. Jewish organizations about the AMIA case and complained that the focus of the U.S. government for these bilateral talks is only on Iran’s nuclear program.
The president did not refer to any Jewish organizations specifically by name.
“Perhaps the AMIA bombing, the case about which every American Jewish organization always asks the Argentine government, was mentioned?” she asked, referring to last week’s phone call between President Barack Obama and Iranian leader Hassan Rohani
“Was the AMIA case ever mentioned?” she asked tweeted to her 2.3 million followers. “Not at all,” she added.
