Venezuela’s TeleSUR Is An Iranian Front


Posted on YouTube: August 22, 2014

While untranslated, the opening title says: The World is silent before the barbarism of Israel in Gaza.

TeleSUR is a transational network in South America with the majority share held by Venezuela.

Wikipedia

[TeleSUR] is a pan–Latin American terrestrial and satellite television network headquartered in Caracas, Venezuela. TeleSUR was launched with the objective of providing information to promote the integration of Latin America.

Venezuela, thanks to Hugo Chavez, is an ally of Iran; and allows Iran’s HispanTV.

Wikipedia

HispanTV’s programming has been distributed in Venezuela, Spain, Argentina, Cuba and other countries worldwide and is intended to reinforce ties between Iran and Latin American states such as Venezuela, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Colombia, and Mexico as well as to counter what the Iranian government sees as unfair coverage in Western media. The channel is similar to Press TV, an English language news channel and Al-Alam an Arabic satellite TV station also owned by the Iranian state, which claim to provide “accurate and unbiased coverage of the world and the Middle East events as they unfold.”

In July 2013, HispanTV and other Iranian channels have been removed from several European and American satellites, allegedly because of the Iran sanctions, even though an EU spokesman said that these sanctions do not apply to media

England and Spain have pulled Iran’s propaganda (English language Press TV and Spanish language HispanTV) off from their European Satellites.

Yet, Iran’s networks both survive on the internet.

However, Iran’s propaganda is distributed, with Latin governments’ approval, thoughout Latin America.

From the Spanish language About Statement on the YouTube page for this video.

YouTube About Statement

There are several voices that condemn international silence toward Israel’s military offensive against the Gaza Strip that has killed, by far, more than 2,000 Palestinians. To Susana Khalil, Palestinian resident in Venezuela, only the progressive governments of Latin America have spoken out against the horror and barbarism caused by the Israeli army. teleSUR. (Used Google to translate)

Note:  teleSUR is Spanish for Tele South, as in South of the USA.

A lot of this is uncontested by the USA or Israel in South America.

Marcelo100Arg May Not Be Who He Claims To Be

Marcelo100Arg is a YouTube poster who claimed to be Argentine of Italian extraction.

But now look at these two channels: Marcelo100Arg and AlbanianPower11. Notice, how many video are identical or similar. The videos have been edited to show slightly different screenshots or times, but when played, many of the videos start at the same point.

AlbanianPower11

I respected Marcelo100Arg when I thought he was an Italian-Argentine who loved Israel. Now, I don’t know if he even exists.

I have to wonder if he is someone working for Israeli Hasbara (Propaganda) activists.

Whoever did these YouTube Channels was clumsy to make them so similar.

marceloMarcelo100Arg has claimed, in the past, to be an Argentine Catholic of Italian extraction, but who knows? Now he claims to be Moroccan-Argentine, yet he left the former pro-Vatican statement after he suddenly claimed a Moroccan ancestry.

Still videos are videos; even if Marcelo100Arg is not honest about his Hasbara affiliations, the videos are valuable.

Palestine Issue More Pressing in Latin America

Palestine present more than ever in Latin American politics

Governmental and popular solidarity with Palestine is unprecedented following the latest Israeli invasion of Gaza.

Last updated: 09 Aug 2014 12:09

Mauricio Abu Ghosh, president of the Palestinian Federation of Chile, the most active pro-Palestine civil society entity in the country, says that popular solidarity with Palestine in Chile at the moment is unprecedented. He explains: “The last four years we witnessed a leap in communication thanks to social media. Today 95 percent of Chileans commenting on Palestine online are in favour of Palestine despite efforts by the Zionist lobby to always portray Jews as the permanent victim.”

Nevertheless, what may be called the Palestinian lobby in Chile has managed to penetrate the media, to expose a different point of view through several prominent faces of the Palestinian community. One of them is Daniel Jadue, the mayor of a Recoleta municipality in Santiago, who often goes on TV to argue passionately for the Palestinian cause.

When asked about the secret of the community’s success in putting enough pressure on the government to recall Chile’s ambassador from Tel Aviv, Abu Ghosh laughs and says he won’t reveal the recipe and simply mentions members of parliament and influential businessmen of Palestinian descent as fundamental contributors to the successful lobbying. He adds: “We now aim at putting pressure on the government to cut all diplomatic ties with Israel.”

Interesting article from Al Jazeera. Arab ethnics have joined with the left to flip South American opinions.
