The pro-US opposition Democratic Unity Roundtable coalition got 99 seats in the country’s parliament, while the United Socialist Party of Venezuela, founded by the late president Hugo Chavez, won 46 seats.
It is the first time in 15 years that anti-Chavez parties have won a majority in the legislature, which comprises 167 deputies.
Opposition leaders expressed their joy at the outcome, with Jewish defeated presidential candidate, Henrique Capriles, one of the coalition’s leaders, tweeting: “The results are as we hoped. Venezuela has won. It’s irreversible.”
Washington and Tel Aviv never liked Maduro’s anti-Israel and pro-Iran foreign policies. Both the US and Israel have been trying bring a regime change in Venezuela for the last 15 years.
American Jewish writer, author and radio talk-show host, Stephen Lendman has called the opposition’s win as victory for fascism over democracy. He claimed it first step toward returning Venezuela to its bad old days.
“Maduro government and Bolivarian popular movements so far prevented erosion of what’s vital to preserve – the hemisphere’s best social democracy, what Washington spent the last 16 years trying to subvert and eliminate, continuing its imperial efforts, wanting US-controlled puppet governance replacing Bolivarian fairness,” said Lendman.
The Zionist regime showed its joy over another anti-Bolivarian movement regime change after pro-Israel Mauricio Marci’s victory in Argentina last month.
The Jewish Press reported on December 7 that some opposition leaders are calling for a referendum to out Maduro before his presidential mandate ends in 2019. But to do that Henrique Capriles and his allies need 112 MPs.
Remember ADL survey how Hugo Chavez government persecuted Jews in Venezuela. David Harris, executive director American Jewish Committee is on record saying: “The Jewish community in Venezuela is close-knit, an overwhelming majority of Jewish children attend Jewish schools, the level of participation is high, identification with Israel is intense, and intermarriage rates are low compared to the United States or Britain.”
