The Israeli invasion in Patagonia
by Maria Poumier
The mysterious disappearance of the Argentine submarine San Juan on November 21, 2017, revived traditional national animosity against the British. But if the British imperial aims on the Falklands and to the detriment of Argentina are well known, it is worth remembering that the English have always used the Jews as vanguard for their colonial projects, especially in Palestine. But the Israeli colonization of Argentina and Chile is well advanced, though never recognized as such, especially in its military dimension.
Hikers on the trail of hidden treasures
Argentines and Chileans are alarmed: they estimate at 8,000 or 10,000 per year the Israeli military who come for "tourism" in Patagonia, for 40 years, at 10,000 km from the Middle East. How much can this cost the Israeli government? In the 1980s and 2000s, they hiked and camped in consolidated tents where groups of young freshmen from military service took turns for two weeks of vacation. But they also made topographical surveys, tracking. The Israeli flag floated triumphantly on inaccessible plateaus. Now they have moved to a higher stage: 72 hotels in San Carlos de Bariloche (ski resort), a settlement in Lago Puelo, whose center is Hostal Onda Azul, and where 90% of passing guests are Israeli. This hotel has its facebook page in Yiddish; commercials and computer keyboards in the region are in Hebrew. Israeli settlements are located in the provinces of Chubut, Rio Negro, Neuquén, Santa Cruz. On these vast expanses, it is difficult to approach the Israeli land properties, recognizable in that they are fortified with barbed wire, and that entry is impossible for the common people: the paths are blocked, the waterways also.
The novelty, this year, is that a report was sent to the Senate on February 16, 2017, by a prestigious lawyer, Juan Gabriel Labake, and the Institute of International Politics "La hora de los pueblos". This report traces some of the Israeli projects that have not yet succeeded since the return of democracy to Argentina in 1982. During the Falklands War, Israel abstained from voting at the UN General Assembly for negotiations with the United Kingdom, like several Arab countries, in November 1982. Then negotiations were undertaken under the government of the first elected President, the radical Raúl Alfonsín, to import 25,000 Jews from the USSR. The USSR finally refused to deliver them, but twelve Jewish families had applied to settle in the Calafate region. Already, disturbing hikers and particularly badly-hit tourists aroused hostility from the population. In a mountain accident, three Israeli NCOs were discovered, one of whom did not survive, and were repatriated to Chile without a report being drafted. Perceiving the danger of an Israeli settlement, the governor of the province of Santa Cruz founded the village of El Chalten. But the following governments made no attempt to populate Patagonia, and the Argentineans even complain that Patagonia, which is more than one million square kilometers, is in the process of depopulation. The explanation for the government's inertia may lie in the fact that Patagonia has already been given by agents in successive Kirchner governments (family based in Santa Cruz) in return for the cancellation of the debt. to the World Bank and the IMF, a negotiation led by Argentine billionaire Eduardo Elztain, number 2 of the World Jewish Congress, and a prominent member of the Lubavitch community. Then he would have financed the campaign of the current President Macri. Another influential mogul is British Joe Lewis, who built a private international airport on his land with a 2-kilometer airstrip. Google has erased all traces of satellite images, but we know that Dassault Falcon 900 land there, with repainted cabins and stamped registrations, not to mention the large and medium commercial Boeing. Radars can not detect what is passing behind the barbed wire and the rows of armed guards to the teeth. This base is near the sea, and there are many back and forth towards the Malvinas Islands, held by the British, but still claimed by Argentina. It was only in 2011 that a law on land was passed, limiting (in theory, because it leaves the field open to men of straw) the acquisition of properties by foreigners to 1000 ha.
