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.

Irony of Irony. Guadalajara is named after a Spanish city of Guadalajara. The name comes from an Arab word, (Wadi hijara) which means River of Stones.

Apparently, the Spanish and the Mexicans have forgotten that it took their own Christians 781 years to free themselves from the Muslims.

I find it fascinating that they embrace Arab culture so fully.

Arab dance is much bigger in the Latin World than in the USA.

A Walk in Old Jaffa

This is a great video.

Jaffo was an Arab enclave inside what became Israel. The city was emptied of much of its Arabs in 1948, but the architecture, and some of the Arabs, still persist.

The group is the Spanish Group La Oreja de Van Gogh (Van Gogh’s Ear)

The song is Geografia (Geography)

Off topic, but I love this video.
