Israel recalled its ambassador to Venezuela after Hugo Chavez compared Israel to Hitler on Al-Jazeera TV. Knowing that the groups Chavez supports in Syria, for example, has Nazi roots make his comments sound insane. Ahmadinejad just last year held a Holocaust Denier’s conference and wants Israel off the map. It is obvious that his audience is uneducated as the people Chavez supports are more connected to Hitler.
Israel’s Foreign Minister, Regev said, “We are concerned at the attitude of Venezuela… They have allied themselves with the most extreme elements in the region.”
