Chilean lawmaker has said that undercover Israeli soldiers were “mapping out” his country.
Eugenio Tuma, a senator of Palestinian descent who has been accused before of anti-Semitic speech, said earlier this month on television that the soldiers were “dressed as civilians” and “mapping out the southern Chile region.”
Tuma, who chairs the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, added during his interview for the television show Controversia that the Chilean government “decided to do nothing given the power exerted by Israel and the US.”
This is a variation of the Andinia Conspiracy Theory. Herzl at one point did consider buying land in South America to set up a Jewish state. Since then, Neo-Nazis in Argentina, and Chile, have accused Israelis of spying out Patagonia.
The Jewish State – Theodore Herzl
Shall we choose Palestine or Argentine? We shall take what is given us, and what is
selected by Jewish public opinion. The Society will determine both these points.
Argentine is one of the most fertile countries in the world, extends over a vast area,
has a sparse population and a mild climate. The Argentine Republic would derive
considerable profit from the cession of a portion of its territory to us. …
Of course, this was 117 years ago; and Argentina – NOT CHILE – was only considered as an alternative to Palestine; but that does not stop the conspiracy theoriests.
After their three years in the army, Israeli youth often take tours all over South America. The conspiracy fruit loops have taken this as proof of an imminent Jewish invasion.
Notice:This is coming from a Chilean Senator of Palestinian descent. Palestinians are represented well above their numbers in the corridors of power in Chile. He will probably get away with this.
Two years ago, an Israeli was accused of setting forest fires in Israel. (Click Here). So these things have taken on a life of their own.
