Argentine - Anti-Semitic posters were spotted recently in a Buenos Aires neighborhood with a large Jewish community, reading “A good Jew is a dead Jew. That good Jew is Nisman.”

The signs referred to Argentine state prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who was found dead just days after publicly accusing President Cristina Fernandez of trying to orchestrate a cover up in the investigation of Iran over the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish community center in Buenos Aires that killed 85 people.

They were first seen in the city’s Villa Crespo neighborhood on Monday, not far from the AMIA center, according to Argentinian daily El Día. It is still unknown who is responsible for creating the posters.

The country’s Jewish community railed against the posters, calling them an incitement to violence.

“The DAIA [the umbrella organization for Argentina’s Jewish community] condemns the clearly anti-Semitic content on the posters, as it incites violence, and urges the responsible authorities to investigate this case and find those responsible for the materials,” said DAIA President Julio Shlosser and Secretary General Jorge Knoblovits in a statement.

“Furthermore, the [DAIA] calls for the different sectors of Argentinian society to condemn this crime that threatens democracy and peaceful coexistence.”
