Shots Fired at the Vehicle of Israeli Ambassador to Chile
The Yeshiva World ^ | 15 October 2009 | Yechiel Spira

Posted on 10/16/2009 2:04:58 PM PDT by Candor7

Local police are investigating a shooting incident, shots fired at the vehicle of Israel’s ambassador to Chile.

Ambassador David Dadon and a security agent were heading to the vehicle on Tuesday, in Santiago, the capital of Chile. Damage was reported to a window and splash guard behind one vehicle tire. Police were summoned immediately, and the determination was made that the damage was caused by gunfire. There were no eyewitnesses and people interviewed by police insist they did not see anything out of the ordinary. Police are investigating two possible angles, a terror incident or a stray bullet.

Gabriel Zaliasnik, president of the Chilean Jewish Community, is quoted by the daily Yisrael HaYom stating community leaders are concerned, calling the incident extremely serious, adding it may signal hostile elements are trying to bring the Mideast conflict to Chile.

Chile is home to a sizable Arab community and the Iranian diplomatic facility also provides cover for Hizbullah activities.

Foreign Ministry officials have confirmed details of the incident.

Hugo Chavez and the deposed Honduran dictator both spout antisemitism to hispanics. Could there be a connection to the Chilean event?

Where was the car? There are a few “no go” areas around greater Santiago.

Chile has the largest Palestinian population outside of the middle east! It is a very closed group. It is usually watched like a hawk.

Over the past two or three weeks the guards around the big Israeli high school and the cultural center have been more visible than usual.

Are you in Santiago? If so, keep an eye on this, things will likely be heating up with Hizbullah in Chile.

Lets us know if anything happens. We need to keep in touch. AP/Reuters do not report this stuff anymore.

Shot Fired At The Israeli Ambassador’s Car In Chile
Date: 2009-10-15 09:46:17

http://www.paltoday.com/english/news.php?id=35771

Occupied Jerusalem - paltoday - The Israeli Foreign Ministry confirmed Wednesday Chilean media reports stating that a bullet was fired Sunday at the vehicle of Israel’s Ambassador, David Dadon, smashing the windshield.

El Mercurio Chilean newspaper reported that the ambassador was not in the car during the incident, and that there were no injuries.

The ambassador found out that a shot was fired at his vehicle as he was about to leave for an event during evening hours.

He called the police and officers were dispatched to the scene closing it to traffic. The police launched an investigation into the issue, and also questioned the guard who was stationed at the entrance to the street, Israeli Ynet News reported.

The police found out that the bullet found in the vehicle matches that hole in the windshield.

The Chilean authorities tightened the security of the ambassador, and said that other steps will be taken to ensure his safety.

President of the Jewish Community in Chili, Gabriel Zaliasnik, said that he is concerned over the incident, and that he does not rule out that it could be a terror attack.

He claimed that the atmosphere towards the Jews had worsened due to what he described as “false accusations” made by the Palestinian federation after the latest war on Gaza.

Chile: Shot fired at Israeli ambassador’s car

Foreign Ministry confirms Chilean media reports that bullet smashed windshield of Israeli envoy David Dadon’s vehicle on Sunday. No one injured in incident, but ambassador’s security tightened

Jonathan Weber Published: 10.14.09, 21:47 / Israel News

A gunshot was fired Sunday at the car of Israel’s ambassador to Chile, according to a report by Chilean newspaper El Mercurio. The ambassador, David Dadon, was not in the car at the time of the incident, and there were no injuries.

According to the report, Dadon discovered the damage caused to his car when he was about to leave for an event at around 7 pm.

The newspaper reported that the bullet had infiltrated the car’s rear windshield and was later found inside the car. Dadon called the police, and soldiers and police officers dispatched to the area closed it to traffic.

Police officer Fernando Vera told the newspaper that the police had launched an investigation into the incident and had also questioned the guard stationed at the entrance to the street, located in a prestigious neighborhood in the capital of Santiago.

Investigators later reported that the bullet found in the car matched the hole in the windshield.

According to the Foreign Ministry, the circumstances of the incident are unclear, but Israeli security sources are involved in the investigation. In addition, the ambassador’s security has been tightened and several other steps will be taken in order to ensure the safety of Israel’s representatives in the South American country until the event’s circumstances are made clear.

Jewish leader: A serious incident
Gabriel Zaliasnik, president of the Chilean Jewish Community, expressed his concern over the incident in an interview with El Mercurioc from Buenos Aires. “It appears serious, and encourages people who are trying to bring the Mideast conflict into Chile. We must be very careful during the investigation.”

Zaliansik did not rule out the possibility that the incident was a terror attack. He said that recent months have seen the atmosphere towards Jews in Chile worsen, following a series of false accusations on the part of the Palestinian federation over the events in the Middle East.

He added that he believed the police investigation would clarify the incident’s circumstances and reveal who was behind it.

“It can only mean bad things, nothing good,” he clarified. “We don’t want any place in the world, particularly Chile, to become a convenient place for such attacks like the ones which took place in Argentina.” He noted that no one had heard the actual gunshot

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestinian_community_in_Chile

“...The Palestinian community in Chile is believed to be the largest Palestinian community outside of the Arab world.[2] They form nine-tenths or more of the population of Arab origin in Chile.[1] Estimates of the number of Palestinian descendants in Chile range from 350,000 to 500,000.[1][3][4]...”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestinian_community_in_Chile

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Chilean_Jews

Chilean Jews are Chileans residing in the country of Chile who are of either Jewish ancestry and observe the Jewish faith.

An estimated 75,000 [1] Chilean Jews live in the country, the majority live in Santiago and are predominantly found in higher-paying professions and all walks of public life.[2] The Chilean Jewish population decreased in the political turmoil of the 1970s and 1980’s, but their identity as Jews in Chile remains. Here is a list of some prominent Chilean Jews.

This bears further research. I have been feeling kindly toward Chile (met one of their Congressmen at the AFP conference two weeks ago) who extolled their successes in creating a privately managed retirement fund for most of the population as well as investing sufficient national funds to avoid having to borrow anything to fund their government support and stimulus efforts during the world economic crisis. It all sounded very conservative and responsible. More research needed.

If you study the Left’s diversity doctrines you will find in addition to a common hatred for Whites, there is a hatred for Jews. Add in the neo-nazi socialist gang and the hatred of Jews run through all of the socialist race hate doctrines. So, yes, this attack on Jews in Chilea is connected to and inspired by mainstreamed race hate and scapegoating doctrines.

The sneaky bastards know how to sneak across heavily guarded borders throughout the middle east. The Southern US border would be a cake walk.And when they get here they can disappear into all the mosques we have across this nation.

My belief is that it could be happening right now. The a-bomb from Iran will come in by ship or by truck across the southern desert.The men to set it up likely are already here.When the bomb(s) goes off, the infiltrated Muzzies will come out of hiding and start shooting.

Thats the likely scenario. And if there are several a bombs, several US cities could be taken out at the same time. And Obama has the door wide open for them.

LA, NYC, New Orleans, Chicago, Seattle, Houston, Washington DC. All of them could be gone in an hour.

And OBAMA is doing NOTHING about it. His czars and Congress are too busy enslaving America, and the Islamofascists have been defined as non threatening, WHILE IN FACT, WE ARE AT WAR! It is a war that the Islamofascists mean to win, and to do that they must destroy the USA, ,and this way is the only way they can do it.

Everyone is waiting for the A-bomb to arrive here via missile from Iran. They will send a dozen via ship and road. And a few will get in, if not all ( maybe).They would be set off by suicide teams.

The left do all the weird things you can imagine, defunding themilitary, weaked policies over seas, and then they over react when attacked. That is the pattern. I am quite convnced though that the USA will suffer another attack. I hope the scenario I imagined never comes about, but the conditions for it exist, and the Iran bomb is almost a certainty.

Being the son of a Chilean father, I have been to the country many times. Last time I was down there, I heard rumblings of Muslim terrorists using barren places in the Atacama desert as training facilities for their future operations. It hasn’t gotten a lot of scrutiny, but it stands to reason that they would congregate in a area much like that of the Middle East.

from a related thread:

[the left are] "opposed to Israels style of politics and nationalism"

I think it's more basic than that. We too often ascribe to the left rational academic beliefs, but I think far more often it's a tribal belief system. There is the understanding that somewhere someone has the rationale pea under some cup, but what really matters is that if they don't toe the line, they will be ostracised by their peer group, like a child in the playground.

That must be why it's called "socialism". The only thing social about it is that the social structure is the belief normalizer.

Damascus, by my reading. My guess is they use a proxy to set off a chemical/biological weapon, & Israel retaliates. I suspect in my lifetime. I pray not though.

This is extraordinarily important information. I would love it if you can find a web source which desribes such activity, even if it is in Spanish. Therefore ANY further information you might give us would be invaluable.
