Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez Veers into Anti-Semitism

On Christmas eve, Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez drifted into anti-Semitism.

“A minority, the descendents of the same ones that crucified Christ…has taken possession of all of the wealth of the world.”

Chavez has established an alliance with the Islamic Republic of Iran, which has long been the leading state sponsor of terrorism internationally and against Israel. When then Iranian President Mohammed Khatami visited Caracas in March 2005, Chavez voiced his support for Iran’s nuclear program.
