Israel and Jewish lobby groups are furious over Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez’s praise for llich Ramirez Sanchez (aka Carlos the Jackal), Mugabe, Dr. Ahmadinejad and late Idi Amin.
“I defend him (Carlos). I don’t care what they say tomorrow in Europe,” said Chavez.
Addressing a meeting in Caracas during the weekend – Chavez called Carlos “a freedom fighter” while calling Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe and Iranian president Dr. Mahmoud Ahmmadinejad as “brothers” and said that the late Ugandan president Idi Amin may have been a misunderstood “patriot”.
President Chavez has been a strong critic of the Zionist regime’s policies towards Palestinians which he termed as “genocide”. Earlier this year he expelled Israeli ambassador and broke diplomatic relations with Tel Aviv.
Carlos, a Marxist Jew, was born in Caracas. He was son of a wealthy Jewish/Marxist lawyer. His father named him after Communist Russia’s first Jew dictator, Vladimir llich Lenin. In January 1966, he attended Camp Mantanzas, a Zionist Cuban revolution base located near Havana. Later he joined the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and thus got the nickname “Carlos, the self-hating Jew”. In 1975, Carlos’s gang took 40 ministers of OPEC hostage in Vienna. On December 22, 1975 – the rebels and the hostages were flown to Algiers enroute to Baghdad where 32 hostages were freed and plane was then flown to Libya. In August 1994 Carlos was kidnapped from Khartoum and is now serving life sentence in a French prison. Oddly, Carlos only wounded one Jew in his career as a “terrorist”. His victims have always been Americans and Europeans.
Israeli professor Benjamin Beit-Hallahmi in his book “The Israeli Connection” records the rise of Idi Amin Dada with the support of Israeli military which began training and supplying arms to Ugandan forces in 1966. Col. Idi Amin was very close to Israeli military advisers, who helped him to stage a military coup against president Milton Obote (an anti-Zionist) in January 1971. The coup was masterminded by Mossad, CIA, and MI6. In April 1072, Idi amin kicked out all Israeli advisers and moved closer to Libyan leader. “The 1971 coup in Uganda which the Israelis involved would like to forget, was the begining of a long period of madness and bloodshed that still has not ended,” wrote Benjamin Beit-Hallahmi.
As far Robert Mugabe is concerned – most of the world might like to keep a ten-pole distance from the dictator – but man do the Israelis love him! Israelis have been supplying Mugabe regime arms, riot-control tanks and water cannons. The links between Mugabe and Mossad goes far back. In 2002, the video showing the Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai discussing a plot to assassinate Mugabe was a false-flage operation created by an Israeli Ari Ben Menashe, employee of Israel military intelligence from 1977-87.
“Once again I find myself saluting Iranian President Ahmadinejad, in full support of his words (at Durban II), no one could do bringing to light European racial discriminatory sentiments,” – Gilad Atzmon, son of one of the two founders of State of Israel.
