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 http://aztlan.net 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.

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.
