Agencia AJN.- In the framework of the ‘Dialogue for Coexistence’, a meeting organised by the University of Buenos Aires (UBA) that seeks to promote peaceful coexistence and diversity, avoiding the levels of confrontation reached in universities in the United States and Europe, the president of the Delegation of Argentinean Israelite Associations (DAIA), Jorge Knoblovits, remarked that ‘we have an asset to guard in Argentina’.

In addition to the DAIA, the Islamic Centre of the Argentine Republic (CIRA, in spanish), the Argentine Episcopal Conference (CEA) and the Alliance of Evangelical Churches of Argentina (ACIERA) also participated in the UBA event.

On Eduardo Feinmann’s programme (La Nación Más), which Knoblovits attended, in an unprecedented event, together with Fabián Ankah, president of CIRA, the head of the DAIA explained that the convocation of the UBA is an ‘act that today can only take place in Argentina. Even in this study we are witnessing extraordinary acts that we should transform them into ordinary ones’.

Ankah, for his part, stressed that Argentina ‘is a country in which we all live together in peace. It is an export example, which we would like to see replicated in all countries of the world. We may think about some things differently, but we respect each other’.

The CIRA president added that although they have ‘different customs, we converge in peace, in tranquillity, each with their own opinion. We have been working on convergence and coexistence between religions for years. In this sense, Argentina is an example for the world. Many foreign countries are aware of this and say it is a very good thing. In Europe this does not happen, and here the coexistence is perfect’.

In the same vein, Knoblovits expressed: ‘We have differences that we will surely continue to maintain, but we know that we have an asset to safeguard in Argentina, which is this way in which for so many years, because it is the product of a work that we have been sustaining for a long time, of interreligious dialogue and interfaith dialogue, so that Argentina is an example for the world’.

‘This is the culture of encounter. These acts of violence in universities in the United States, Canada and Europe, these acts of intolerance, will not happen here. Because this is what was signed at the Public University of Buenos Aires,’ the DAIA president added.

Ankah, who ‘represents Muslims, who are Argentines of Islamic faith’, concluded that ‘we love our country and our religion dictates that we should love the land, the soil and the country in which we live. And that is what we do’.

The panel, unprecedented in the world, counted with the participation of the rector of the UBA, Ricardo Gelpi; the president of the CEA, Mons. Oscar Ojea; and the vice-president of Planning and Management of ACIERA, Rafael Pedace.

Declaration of the University of Buenos Aires:

Summoned by the rector of the University of Buenos Aires, Dr. Ricardo Gelpi and as representatives of central institutions in the community, cultural and religious life in our country, we commit ourselves to develop a constant and constructive work in favour of the preservation of a university environment free of violence, safeguarding the safety of students and with a clear message to society of healthy coexistence in diversity of thought.

Agencia AJN.- El ministro de Relaciones Exteriores Israel Katz se reunió con el nuevo embajador de Argentina en Israel, el rabino Shimon Axel Wahnish.

“Gracias a la amistad y el apoyo del presidente (Javier) Milei, los vínculos entre Argentina e Israel se estrecharán y alcanzarán nuevas alturas”, escribió Katz en X. “Estoy seguro de que pronto veremos la nueva embajada de Argentina en Jerusalem”, agregó.

Wahnish, de 42 años, se mudó de Buenos Aires a Israel con su esposa y seis hijos. En su reciente visita a Israel, Milei prometió trasladar la embajada de Argentina de Herzliya a la capital del Estado judío.

El puesto en la embajada de Argentina está vacante desde principios de 2022, cuando el embajador anterior fue destituido tras una condena por corrupción.
