Chavez still feeling neglected lashes out at Israel and the US

Note how the rhetoric from Caracas is virtually identical to the rhetoric from Tehran, and Damascus.

From the Houston Chronicle  

CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Sunday renewed his criticism of Israel’s military offensive in Lebanon, calling it a “new Holocaust.”

Chavez’s comments in his weekly radio and TV broadcast came three days after he said he was recalling Venezuela’s top diplomat to Israel to express his government’s indignation over Israeli attacks in Lebanon and its actions toward Palestinians.

“Israel has gone mad,” Chavez said.

“They are massacring children, and no one knows how many are buried,” he added, accusing Israel of being guilty of a “new Holocaust” and the “terrorist” U.S. government of complicity.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry rebuffed Chavez’s statements on Monday.

Huey must be getting all his information from Al-Reuters.

“Unfortunately, he (Chavez) is not known for his objectivity when it comes to the Middle East conflict,” said ministry spokesman Mark Regev. “He has embraced the regional leaders who have called for the destruction of the Jewish state and I think there is a serious question as to his judgment when it comes to Middle East issues.”

Chavez and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad have pledged to support one another in disputes with Washington. Ahmadinejad has drawn international condemnation with calls for Israel to be wiped off the map.

Israel said Friday it was concerned over the recall of Venezuela’s charge d’affaires in Israel, but had not yet decided how to respond.

Chavez has previously called the Israeli military campaign “terrorism and fascism,” and said last month that U.S. backing of Israel was putting the world on course toward another “Holocaust.”

  1. Yeah, Huey (nice) is a Leftist nutjob. Any positive forward movement for Venezuela will be negated by him. But hey, you can’t blame him for jumping on the bandwagon, can you?

  2. Chavez and Kimmy Kins, little dictators who get sad when neglected. I feel so sorry for them. Not really.

  3. Huey is a special case… Personally I think that Bushear Assad and him are in direct competition with each other… They are each looking to get Iraq’s vacant seat in the Axis of Evil.

    Ahmedinijad is mad, I have no doubts in that. But…

    To the disappointment of all ‘Right Wingers’ and ‘Bush – iffied’ geeks. Yeah, I know; you want every living being under the sky to think what Goerge and Condi do. You want all the living eyes to see things the way your politicians do, I know. Don’t you think that you have too much of a blind faith in your so called democratic values and presidents!?

    And for Israel-Lebanon conflict – trust me; in this conflict every SINGLE Israeli life is worth A DOZEN lebanese lives and that too of CHILDREN. Hezbollah has terrorized Israel, but are you really sure that terrorism answers terrorism??

    And you still ask: why are there more terrorists! why are there more terrorists! why are there more terrorists!??? I live in a conflict zone and I have very well experienced how these events have contributed to rising extremism. Come out of your villas and states, look at how the world really works.

    Good going Chavez! You have the guts to say the right things to the right people and at the right time.

    The Fact remains that if Hizbollah, Hamas and the other terrorist groups would put down their weapons there would be peace… If the Israelis put down their weapons however there would be another holocost.
