Chapter Summary

The disparity between Israel's interests and those of Argentine Jews was notable during the presidency of Arturo Frondizi. In May 1960 at the height of the celebrations to mark 150 years of Argentine independence and the Republic's liberation from the yoke of Spanish colonialism, Mossad agents kidnapped the Nazi criminal Adolf Eichmann and took him to Israel for trial. In the 1960s Tacuara drew additional inspiration for its anti-Semitic and anti-Israel views from contacts with both neo-Nazi organizations in other countries and Hussein Triki, the Arab League's representative in Buenos Aires. Tacuara responded to the Jewish protest by publishing a 32-page pamphlet that was sold at newspaper stands in October 1962 in Buenos Aires. The pamphlet was designed to prove "the provocation of the Jewish community," which had planned the Sirota affair in order to attack Argentine nationalism.
