The land of the Nazis provide a strange refuge for these people and I wonder if there is an ulterior reason for them going there after WW2.

Argentina stopped Jewish immigration in 1938, not sure when it started again.
Iranian government and hardliners are not the kind of people to cosy up with. Argentina is playing with fire.

Actually, RC, the Supreme Court is maintaining its independence from the other state institutions. This is why CFK is calling for democritzación de la justicia (judicial demoratization), which of course is a euphemism for bringing the judiciary to heel!!!!!

As Musky states @5, Jewish immigration en masse stopped (by law) in 1938, by which time we had the largest Jewish community in South America. Up until 1938 Argentina was a non anti-semetic destination for European Jews, the change to anti-semetism came pretty well over night and still exists today.
However Jews still make up a large minority of Argentine voters!!!!!
The love-in with Iran is going to hurt our foreign relations with the real world even more than CFK and Timerman's previous efforts!!!!!

Thank you both for the insight. I must admit I thought it strange the Jews would come after WW2.
