Report from Venezuela

Eye-opening clip on Chávez regime’s anti-Jewishness

Print Email

Great, great report below from HDNet about the Venezuela government’s affirmative desire to make life difficult for the several thousand Jews who live there. You see the ransacked Tiferet Israel congregation, the Sephardic synagogue vandalized last year shortly after Operation Cast Lead. You see the graffiti (“David I Shit On Your Star”—clever). You see one Jewish Venezuelan report of these acts, “It cultivates an atmosphere of fear against authority, of vulnerability.” And, perhaps most of all, you see every person asked explain that the regime of President Hugo Chávez is not a passive bystander to all this, but rather in many ways the active ringleader.

Watch the whole thing.
