Before 9/11, there was the 1994 Buenos Aires Jewish Community Centre Bombing – it is time to understand its lessons.

A thinly veiled fiction book, published September 11th on the anniversary of the US tragedy, to note that the AMIA bombing which killed 85 and injured 300, is a clear precursor to 9/11. Previously released in Spanish in 2009, Gustavo Perednik’s book, now published in English, is an example that the world must pay attention to terrorism against Jews because the rest of the world is next. The recent death of his colleague, Alberto Nisman, the prosecutor in the 1994 bombing case, points significantly to the importance of this book in today’s troubled times.

NOTE: since the writing of the book, Alberto Nisman died under mysterious circumstances in January, 2015, just one day before he was to testify before Congress in Argentina about allegations of a cover up and about an Executive interference in the Judicial process.
