Hugo wants to put Israel 'in its place"
Hugo Chavez isn't shy about aligning himself with the ant-Semites of the world. Sounding like his friend Iranian President Ahmadinejad, Hugo let loose with a tirade against Israel worthy of any Jew hating Muslim leader:
Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez described Israel on Saturday as a genocidal state that acted as an assassin for the United States, predicting the Middle East nation would one day be "put in its place."
The socialist Chavez is a harsh critic of both Israel and the United States and cut relations with Israel after accusing it of "holocaust" for its 2009 offensive in the Gaza Strip.
"It has become the assassin arm of the United States, no one can doubt it. It is a threat to all of us," Chavez said, during a visit by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Chavez said he supported a peaceful struggle for the return to Syria of the Golan Heights, captured by Israel in 1967.
"The territory will one day return to the Syrian hands," Chavez said. "Of course we want it to be peaceful because we don't want more war."
"But one day the genocidal state of Israel will be put into its place, and let's hope that a really democratic state emerges there, with which we can share a path and ideas."
Chavez did not offer further details of what putting Israel "in its place" would entail.
Just a reminder; here's one of Hugo's best buddies and comrades in arms:
Solidarity forever, baby.
