Recent anti-Semitic incidents in Argentina show that "anti-Semitic groups … are working to harm the Jewish community," the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) said Thursday. An ADL statement cited a violence attack last week on a crown celebrating Israeli Independence Day in Buenos Aires, and bomb threats against two synagogues. "These groups should not be allowed to create and fuel an atmosphere of intimidation and fear, which undermines the democratic and pluralistic values of the Republic of Argentina," ADL National Director Abe Foxman said in a letter to Argentinean Justice Minister Aníbal Domingo Fernández.
