Venezuela Criticizes Israeli Attacks on Syria

http://www.telesurtv.net/articulos/2013/05/06/venezuela-rechaza-energicamente-los-ataques-de-israel-contra-siria-3163.html

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.
