Some 5,000 people rallied for Israel in Buenos Aires. “This attitude helps to strengthen Israel,” said the main speaker at Tuesday’s rally, Israeli Ambassador Rafael Eldad. Eldad said that Hezbollah already showed its “horrible face” in two unsolved terrorist attacks on Jewish institutions in Buenos Aires widely attributed to the terrorist group. The crowd cheered Eldad and the emotion was palpable when they saw images of the war on a giant screen and when the Israeli and Argentine national anthems were played.
