New Argentine Prez Good for Jews

Argentina’s first lady and senator Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner’s victory in presidential elections Oct. 27 is positive news for the Jewish community, according to Aldo Donzis, president of the DAIA, the nation’s Jewish umbrella organization.

The government of her husband, Nestor Kirschner, was active in seeking justice for the terrorist attack on the Jewish community building in Buenos Aires in 1994, and initiated projects to fight anti-Semitism, discrimination and xenophobia.

The first lady and now president-elect was active in these efforts, according to Donzis.
