    ... but not any longer, and even then (from 1974 to 1980) it was the government, not the general population (which has never been more anti-Jewish than in other western countries). The military junta tolerated very nasty and nazi-like antisemitism among its ranks. From the 10 thousand (officially) recognized victims murdered by the dictatorship, about 1000 were Jews, a huge proportion considering that Jews make about 1% of the population. Their ideology was "saving the Christian civilization" and many officers openly declared that Jews were always suspect. The governor of Buenos Aires province at the time blamed 3 Jews for the ills of the world: Marx (destroyed the Christian economy), Freud (destroyed the Christian family) and Einstein (destroyed the Christian concept of time). I wonder how he justified the other famous Jew (Jesus), but fascists are seldom consistent. Most Argentinians always repudiated these ugly troglodites. Hatred of Jews has never been welcome nor widespread.
