El jefe de Estado venezolano, Nicolás Maduro, durante un acto como parte de su Gobierno de calle en el estado Miranda (centro), destacó que Venezuela es “un pueblo de corazón abierto, y por eso rechaza los ataques de Israel contra Palestina y Siria”.
The Chief of the Venezuelan State (president), Nicolas Maduro, during a Government event from street in Miranda State (center), declared that Venezuela is “an open-hearted people, and therefore rejects Israel’s attacks against Palestine and Syria.”.
I do not know what Palestine had to do with yesterday’s Israeli attacks on Syria, but the President just threw that in there for good measure.
This is coming from Venezuela, by a President who was hand picked by Hugo Chavez to succeed him. Chavez had set up a government policy which was very hostile to Israel.
Apparently, Mr. Maduro, is following in Chavez’s anti-Israel footsteps.
You would have to expect this from a Venezuela under a Chavista president.
Ecuador – under a government similar to Venezuela’s – also criticized Israel.
