“We are doing them a favor, not they to us. I hope we do not sell more, I said. The meat that we sell abroad is worth four or five times more. In this sense, selling meat to Israel, to the Jews, they are the ones who benefit because they earn four times as much, “continued Samid.

“Jews are a mess as customers”
The Peronist slaughterer responded to a note with statements of Galit ronen, Ambassador of Israel in Argentina, in which the official stated that if the uncertainty remains as to whether our country will sell meat to theirs or not, they should look for other markets.

“This MOISHE has no limits. He never tires of robbing us !!!! When are we going to go to Garín to block his laboratory ????”Samid first wrote on his Twitter account in reference to Hugo Sigman, the owner of the laboratory involved in the production of AstraZeneca’s coronavirus vaccine.
Shortly after, he pointed out his criticisms of Galperín and Grobocopatel: “These PAISANOS are all the same. The first two made the money here and went to live in Uruguay. The other rat gives our vaccines to the gringos.”.
