Unknown anti-Semitic culprits have been handing out flyers in Villa Crespo, one of Buenos Aires' many Jewish communities, which read "A Good Jew is a dead Jew. That good Jew is Nisman."

The flyers are referring to slain Argentinian state prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who was found dead on January 18th, only days after he publicly accused President Cristina Fernandez of trying to cover up an investigation of Iran regarding the bombing attack of the AMIA Jewish community in Buenos Aires in 1994.

The attack left 85 people dead, and is the worst instance of anti-Semitic hatred to ever taken place in the country.

Police are still looking into Nisman's death, who was found in his apartment dead from a single gun shot to the head. They've yet to indicate if he killed himself, or was murdered, though considering the timing, it seems it's likely to be the latter.

The flyers were first seen circulating the Villa Crespa neighborhood on Monday, coincidentally very close in proximity to the AMIA center.

The culprits behind the flyers remain at large.

Argentinian Jews have since condemned the posters for inciting violence, and hatred, against Jews.

"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," stated both DAIA President Julio Shlosser and Secretary General Jorge Knoblovits in a joint statement.

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