Chavez and Ahmadinejad Joined at the Hip

Here's a piece from the intensely anti-Jewish, pro-Palestinian/Muslim Ernesto Cienfuego, owner of La Voz de Aztlan (you ought to go to and scroll down the left side to see some of the nasty stuff they publish there).

Anyway, I'm sure there is a great big grin on his face as he reports on Chavez' statement. Next thing you know, he'll be requiring the Jews of Venezuela to wear yellow ribbons on their clothes, in the good ol' Muslim tradition of yore (and last week).

Maybe, just maybe, there is something to all those news reports about Chevez getting chummy with Iran.

Ya think?

President Hugo Chavez wants Jews out of Venezuela

The President of Venezuela, Hugo Chávez Frías, said last Christmas Eve that "the world has wealth for all, but some minorities, the descendants of the same people that crucified Christ, have taken over all the wealth of the world.”

The statement by President Chavez brought strong condemnation by the Zionist Simon Wiesenthal Center, and now the approximate 15,000 Jews who live in Venezuela are feeling a bit uncomfortable and many are making preparations to move to Israel.

A delegation of Jewish community leaders from Venezuela arrived in Jerusalem on Tuesday to explore options for Venezuelan Jews who want to leave and move to Israel. The delegation of 16 community leaders met Wednesday with President Moshe Katsav in Jerusalem. The Jewish delegation told President Katsav of the growing unrest in Venezuela and their fears for the future of the 15,000 Jews living there. The Jewish delegation, led by Freddie Pressner, President ofthe Confederation of Jewish Associations of Venezuela, visited a Tel Aviv University program for Spanish-speaking students yesterday, and today they will tour Kfar Saba, which has been designated by the Jewish Agency to absorb the growing number of Jews immigrating from Venezuela. "The city of Kfar Saba is happy to be affiliated with the Venezuelan Jewish community," said Kfar Saba Mayor Yehuda Ben-Hamo. "I see this initiative as an important Zionist endeavor of which Kfar Saba is very proud." Ben-Hamo saidthat 25 families have settled in the city in recent months and that more Venezuelan immigrants are scheduled to make Kfar Saba their home this year.

Jewish Agency officials estimate there are around 2,000 Venezuelan Jews already living in Israel and that just over100 Venezuelan Jews arrived here during the past year. "We expect that number to rise," one official said.

    Expat Venezuelans of my acquaintance tell me that people are getting out in droves: They are terrified. Chavez is taking his cues from Castro.

    Authentic Marxist-style populist movements are developing in Venezuela and Bolivia, and perhaps, in Mexico. We'll find out at their next "election".

    Here'sa link to some interesting articles about Cuba.

    The union of Latinos and Muslims to bring down the United States is on!

    They are very smart to be scared, and I applaud their escapes. Maybe they will join us in our fight to remain one of the few places left in the world to experience a modicum of freedom!

    My closest experience with people in that position was with an attending of mine when I was a resident. His family were Polish Jews, and they escapted to Cuba just ahead of Hitler. Then they escaped to the U.S. from Cuba shortly after Castro.

    Thanks for the link - I'll follow it!

    Absolutely - it took me a while, but I finally caught on to that nasty little alliance, which is why I have joined Eleanor in blogging about the Border thing so much.

    I've run into some new stuff about terrorists crossing the border in the last couple of days; I'm going to try to chase it down, but can you imagine what Bush's "legacy" will be when the next attack happens and it is found that it had something to do with someone who crossed that border illegally?

    Elmer's Brother,

    This guy, this Ernesto Cienfuego, is probably the most rabidly hate-filled human being I have ever seen. I don't know whether he's nuts or just plain nasty!
