Today’s guest Adrian Salbuchi just got slimed by DAIA, the Argentine version of AIPAC-ADL. They threatened to file criminal charges against him for “anti-Semitism” due to four articles Adrian published at Russia Today. (Scroll all the way down for links to the articles.) Here is Adrian’s response challenging the Zionists to a public debate…a challenge that they are apparently afraid to take up, for fairly obvious reasons. -KB

Buenos Aires, 16th September 2014
DAIA – Delegación de Asociaciones Israelitas Argentinas,
(Delegation of Argentine Israeli Associations)
Pasteur 633, 7th Floor,
Buenos Aires – Argentina      Attn.: Messrs. Jorge Knoblovits and Waldo Wolff

Ref: Your Statements to the Press – Our Invitation to a Public Debate


I learned from press reports published by the “Iton Gadol” and “Jewish Press Agency/Agencia de Prensa Judía” agencies, that your secretary General, Mr. Jorge Knoblovits (press report dated 18th August 2014) and your Deputy Vice-President, Mr. Waldo Wolff (press report dated 22nd August 2014), have accused me of “Anti-Semitism”, threatening to file legal proceedings against me because of my geopolitical assessments of the war waged by the State of Israel against the Palestinian people in Gaza during last July and August.

Similar press accusations were made by Mr. Daniel Lew, president of OSA – Organización Sionista Argentina (Argentine Zionist Organization, which is affiliated to the DAIA) – and Messrs. Schlomo Samuels and Sergio Widder, officers of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

In this respect, I would clarify that for years I have been presenting my analyses on this matter in various local and international news channels and media.  Lately, I have been doing this in articles addressing the complex and inter-related topics of the State of Israel, Zionism, Argentine Geopolitics, the Global Sovereign Debt System engineered by international banking circles, and the foreign policies of the United States, United Kingdom and the European Union.

These articles have been published by international media outlets RT/Russia Today (in English) and Actualidad RT (in Spanish) – both of which are the official news media of the Russian Confederation –, as well as in our local weekly TV program “Segunda República” which airs on Buenos Aires-based Channel TLV1 – Toda La Verdad Primero/All The Truth First – amongst other local and foreign media channels.

As founder of Proyecto Segunda República (PSR – Second Republic Project), international analyst, author of books on geopolitics and speaker, I cannot but construe your statements published in the aforementioned media outlets and others as well, as an attempt on the part of the DAIA to stifle all criticism of the policies of genocide carried out by a foreign power: the State of Israel. 

To this, I would add your systematic personal accusations of “Anti-Semitism” against me, over the past seven years which you have published in your official “Annual Reports on Anti-Semitism” corresponding to the years 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.

I believe that your attitude only serves to generate confusion on fundamental complex matters that urgently need to be addressed in a public, open, balanced and honest debate.  Especially at a time when so much is voiced about the importance of living under a democracy, fighting all political discrimination, and ensuring that freedom of the press is properly protected from those who stand ready to silence and censor it.

Accordingly, the Second Republic Project is promoting a national, regional and global debate on Zionism in general, the behaviour of the State of Israel in particular, and the impact that both have in different countries, particularly Argentina.

We can very well understand the historical concern of Jewish communities around the world – including Argentina’s small and very powerful Community – regarding any outbreak of irrational discrimination.  That, in fact, is one of the reasons why we propose such an Open Debate of these issues as part of our concern and solidarity with the Jewish Community in Argentina.  Ensuring these issues are openly debated with transparency, public enlightenment and balanced self-criticism will consolidate greater social protection for the local Jewish community.

There is clearly growing outrage amongst global, regional and local public opinion against the blatant acts of genocide, the spectacles of violence, and the explosive and perverse public statements made by certain members of the Israeli government such as the Deputy Chairman of the Knesset Mr. Moshe Feiglin (member of the governing “Likud Party”, an entity affiliated to the DAIA), and MK Ms. Ayelet Shaked (of the ultra-right “Jewish Home Party”) during the recent military attacks of the Israeli Defence Forces against Gaza, that rained death and destruction on thousands of Palestinians, particularly women, children and the elderly.

Insidious attempts to align and drag all of Argentina’s Jewish Community behind the interests and objectives of a foreign power executing such Acts of Genocide as Israel’s, does potential great harm to that Community in our country.

Consequently and as Founder of the PSR, and internationally recognized political analyst on these complex matters, I invite you to participate in an open, balanced, respectful and serious public debate on these and other key issues.

We can of course mutually agree its format, issues to be addressed, choice of an impartial moderator, as well as the place date and time when that Debate will take place.  Naturally, our offices of PSR and Channel TLV1 in Buenos Aires are available to do this if you so wish and agree.

I now look forward to your prompt reply so that we may organize this important democratic, balanced, and open debate.

Yours faithfully,

Adrian Salbuchi
