The war began on April 2, 1982 when Argentinian forces invaded the Falkland/Malvinas Islands, controlled by Great Britain. Some 649 Argentinian military personnel, 255 British military personnel and three Falkland Islanders died during the 74 days of the conflict. Argentina surrendered on June 14, 1982.
Argentina was ruled by a military dictatorship from 1976 to 1983.
In April, the AMIA Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires held an event to recognize the Jewish veterans of the Falklands/Malvinas War.
Which stilld oesn;t back up your claim that it was an event to commemorate the "liberation of the malvinas", in fact if anything the underlined part refutes it even more strongly....
"Jewish soldiers will be recognized for their service during the Malvinas War"
