Chavez reaches for the old anti-Semitism to slam Henrique Capriles Radonski
HENRIQUE Capriles Radonski is the leader of Hugo Chavez’s opposition in Venezuela. Radonski is the 39-year-old governor of the state of Miranda and leader of the Democratic Unity coalition.
Peru’s conservative Nobel literature laureate Mario Vargos Llosa asked:
“Who says there can’t be a Venezuelan spring?”
So. How does Chavez attacked Mr Radonski before they meet at the polls on October 7? Well, Capriles parents’ are Jews. Chavez does not like the Jews.
A piece entitled The Zionist Jews, by Tarek Muci Nasir, appeared in El Diario Caracas, a pro Chavez paper:
Let’s pay attention of the Israeli-Zionist associations, unions and federations which are conspiring to Venezuela to take over our finances, our industries, commerce, construction; which are infiltrating government positions and politics. Possibly, we’ll have to expel them from the country…
Now, Chavez’s other organs are tapping into age-old prejudices. Venezuelan National Radio has published “Zionism is the Enemy: a promise that conceals a pitfall”.
“…to understand the interests that embody the candidate of the Venezuelan and transnational oligarchy, Capriles Radonski, it is important to know what Zionism is; the Israeli ideology he covertly represents…Zionism is the majority owner of financial institutions in the world, controlling almost 80 percent of the global economy and communications industry almost entirely, while maintaining decision-making positions within the US Department of State and European powers….This is our enemy, Zionism today is Capriles, which has nothing to do with a domestic supply and independent. In October there are two clear proposals for Venezuela, the Bolivarian Revolution that has reasserted the Latin American and the people’s interests and international Zionism, which threatens to destroy the planet we inhabit.
If in doubt, tell them he’s a Jew and, therefore, cannot be Venezuelan, which since those conquests are all Christian.
