Argentinean prosecutor would rather have seen Mugniyah in court

Argentinean prosecutor Alberto Nisman (pictured, top left), who last year secured 'red notices' from Interpol for the arrest of Imad Mugniyah and three other people in connection with the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, said in a telephone interview with the Jerusalem Post that while he feels no remorse at Mugniyah's death, he would rather have seen him in court:
In a telephone interview from Buenos Aires, Dr. Nisman said that Mughniyeh was personally tasked by former Iranian intelligence minister Ali Fallahian with organizing the attack at the AMIA (the Argentine Jewish Mutual Association) building, and that the Hizbullah terror chief directly coordinated preparations in the Argentinean capital itself in early July 1994, leaving Buenos Aires only days before the blast.

Eighty-five people were killed in the bombing - the worst anti-Semitic attack outside Israel since the Holocaust and Argentina's worst-ever case of terrorism. Argentina also indicted Mughniyeh over the bombing of the Israeli Embassy two years earlier, in which 29 people were killed.

"Mughniyeh was being actively sought by Interpol," said Nisman, "and it would have been best if he had been brought to court, to explain what happened [in the orchestration of the bombing]. I feel no sorrow [over his death], nor the reverse. I am a prosecutor and my work is to bring people to justice. This is not justice."
Nisman doesn't get it. He reminds me of some of the people in the US who want to shut down Guantanamo. Terrorists don't operate by our rules. They won't 'see you in court' unless they are 'Palestinians' and the court is Israeli (and they are willing to be seen in court because they hold out hope of being part of a 'prisoner exchange' some day). Islamic terrorists are willing to die for their cause so long as they take enough 'infidels' with them. They have shown us that time and time again, beginning with the 1983 suicide bombings against American and French troops in Beirut - which were planned by Mugniyah. Because of that, you don't 'arrest' terrorists, you kill them and by killing them, you save innocent lives. If Nisman thinks that Mugniyah would ever have allowed himself to be taken alive and put on trial in an Argentinean court, Nisman must be using hallucinogens. In fact, the next paragraph of the interview is even more laughable than the previous three:
Nisman urged the other suspects being sought by Interpol in the case - including Fallahian (now a senior security adviser to Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei), Ahmad Vahidi (Iran's deputy defense minister) and Mohsen Rabbani (the former cultural attaché at the Iranian Embassy in Buenos Aires) - to give themselves up for trial. "This is not a threat," he stressed. "They should come forward and say what happened."
And the Arabs (including the 'Palestinians') are all going to join hands tomorrow morning, pile up all their weapons at the closest Israeli checkpoint and say that they accept the State of Israel unconditionally and don't want to take any land from it. Not unless the Messiah shows up at the same time.

Some people still think the real world is like law school.

Maybe the real world is like law school. In one of those bizarre turn of events for which the Middle East is famous, Hamas is asking Egypt to extradite to it Fatah terrorists accused to seeking to assassinate Hamas leaders.

Just give the Palestinians a reichlet and they will kiss and make up.
