Chavez Adopted Islamic Antisemitism

World  (tags: Chavez, antisemitism )

- 2012 days ago -
In attacking Israel, Chavez undermined the "anti-Zionism is one thing, anti-Semitism is something else entirely" argument. Chavez's attitude to Israel mirrors that of the USSR that made Jews out as a 5th column during its long propaganda campaign against

Thugs of a feather flock together.

Chavez is the world's foremost socialist, non-Muslim leader and close friends of Islamic Iran and Hezbollah-backed evangelizers of Shia-brand Islamic radicals to put down roots in Venezuela and elsewhere in the lower Americas, bringing with them a particularly virulent form of antisemitism that Chavez has wholeheartedly embraced along with the groundwork for Islamic terrorism in the U.S.'s back yard.

It appears that there is no dictator Chavez won't befriend.

" The current situation affords the opportunity for a critical reassessment of the Chavez era. In his 14 years in power, Chavez turned Venezuela into the Latin American hub of a global network of anti-American, authoritarian rogue states. There is scarcely a fellow dictator he didn’t befriend. Some, like the Iraqi tyrant Saddam Hussein, are no longer with us. Others—among them the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko, the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, and the Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe—remain, sadly, alive and in power. The closest relationship of all is that forged with the Castro brothers in Cuba, Fidel and Raul, whose ailing economy is kept afloat by heavily subsidized oil from Venezuela, which is Latin America’s biggest producer.

With allies like these, it should come as no surprise that Chavez became an arch-foe of the State of Israel. In one of the last foreign policy statements he made before returning to hospital in Cuba in December, Chavez denounced what he called the “savage” Israeli attack on Gaza. In 2009, on the previous occasion that Israel responded militarily to Hamas rocket attacks from Gaza, Chavez told the French newspaper Le Figaro that the Israel had launched a “genocide” against the Palestinians. “The question is not whether the Israelis want to exterminate the Palestinians. They’re doing it openly,” he said.

Such incendiary statements won Chavez the admiration of the Arab street. In 2006, during the conflict between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Arab satellite network Al Jazeera praised Chavez for beating Arab leaders to the punch when he became the first head of state to condemn Israel’s actions. Similar gasps of admiration greeted his decision to expel the Israeli ambassador to Caracas in 2009."

You're dead right, Beth. The loony left and the Islamists have an ongoing love affair.

Well, Frack, the 'old' term 'anti-semite' still definitely refers to you, you disgusting hate monger and bigot. There must be Islamist and Neo-Nazi sites where you would be so much more comfortable.

Chavez can't die soon enough for the good of the whole civilized world.

The rest of Latin America has moved so far ahead since throwing off the US imposed right wing dictators and have developed some very progressive, humane countries - just about all except Venezuela. Nothing has changed there, just a different tyrant.

Frack. Your comments are always sickening. But I looked at your profile and see you are from the Fuehrer' s home town and all falls into place. Vienna and Austria threw open their gates and welcomed Hitler with wild cheers and it is still the most Fascist country in Europe. What a surprise! You are the perfect example of the overlapping of the extreme left with the extreme right - mirror images of hate and stupidity.

Vienna is also the location of the new Saudi so-called Religious Tolerance Centre which was also welcomed with open arms by this Fascist state - the Saudis being the keepers of the Islamic flame of Mohammed who commanded Muslims to kill all Jews so that their day of resurrection could come. Their Jew-hating deity won't allow it until all his hated Jews are murdered. Mohammed tried but couldn't kill them all. No wonder you are such a defender of Jew hating Islam.

Not to mention that the Saudis don't even pretend to have freedom of religion, speech, conscience or press - they have none. So much for their disingenuous 'religious tolerance' which only applies to Islam and does not affect in any way their blatant hatred of Jews and Christians. Any civilized country would have called them on their hypocrisy. No wonder they opened this hate centre in your home town with a history of similar hate.

Frack is actually Wolf but Frack is a better description. Fracking destroys the environment with poisons and toxins leaving it poisoned and unusable. I wonder if Chavez also means that.......

Frack/Wolf with the bared teeth quotes:

"'Anti-Semite' used to mean a man who hated Jews. Now it means a man who is hated BY Jews." -- Joseph Sobran"

Seems like Frack isn't able to think on his own, but his Judeophobia drives him to visit moronic antisemitic websites for material to use for posting moronic Nazi-like comments.

It could be that in his perpetual and lugubrious mourning that his all-time hero, Hitler, is dead - and Frack/Wolf's ridiculous use of an icon with a crossed-out Swastika to feign otherwise - has blunted his senses.

Hopefully Chavez soon say goodbye to this world, and do humankind a tremendous favor.

Sorry, Frack, but Chavez's record of hatred toward Jews is well documented enough to qualify him for the good, old-fashioned label of "anti-Semitic." My guess is that you qualify, too.

It's an interesting fact that most of the sadists and mass murderers who volunteered to work in the Nazi extermination camps came from Austria.

Well, Frack, why don't you just cancel your membership in Care2 and go learn how to get along with people.
Then come back with a different alias and start over.That is, if you do learn that being a friend is much happier than being an antagonist.

The very use of the nick name Frack, sets our blood to boiling.

Basically it's a choice to make for yourself.

Now, for those who are still protesting against using Canadian oil as "un-ethnical": is Venezuela oil more ethical, if it feeds extremists and Islamist mass murderers?

Bob Algeron, using ANY oil is "unethical." We need to wean ourselves off oil, regardless of origin. I agree, the best way to disempower the OPEC nations (and I completely agree with your description, by the way) is to stop buying oil from them-- but extracting fuel from the Canadian oil sands is ecologically devastating.

I suspect-- I certainly hope!-- that Islamic influence worldwide will begin to fade when the oil fields are tapped out. Most OPEC countries have already hit their peak oil point; as the stuff becomes harder and more expensive to extract, people will be forced to turn to wind, solar, hydroelectric, geothermal, etc. Mass transit will become more readily available as well, I hope.

Want to reduce Islamist influence? Support public transportation and alternate, nonpolluting forms of energy.

What a piece of crap article!!! Chavez was elected again and again by much larger majorities than any of our own presidents, and the Venezuela legislature still has power and so do the courts and the opposition still has its biased news media, so the word "dictator" is totally inaccurate.

I agree Robert O this article is a piece of crap they hate Chavez because the large global corporations don't own him and of course if you don't back Israel you must be a anti-semite right

Robert O., your comment is spot on. It's obvious that Zionists and American wingnuts don't recognise democracy at work when they see it!

Well one can't deny that who he allies himself with the extremist Islamics follow. The problem is when they "invaded" Russia, many many of the Islamists became Christian. Which of course set off the bombing of Christian churches in Russia.

Whatever his motives, he didn't count on that happening.

The news articles in the Washington Post have been very clear that there was widespread fraud and intimidation. Not quite emblematic of how a democracy should run.

He's a populist creep and I'm glad he's on his way out. The world needs less of his ilk.
