S. Fla. Venezuelans: Chavez Incites Anti-Semitism

by Jerry Berrios
The Miami Herald

Some Venezuelans in Broward are incensed about recent remarks by President Hugo Chávez, who accused Israel of conducting its own Holocaust against Palestinians and the people of Lebanon.

"They [the Israelis] are doing what Hitler did against the Jews," Chávez said in an interview with the Al Jazeera news agency broadcast Friday from Dubai.

During his Sunday radio program, Chávez accused Israel of committing a "new Holocaust" with the help of the United States, which he described as a "terrorist" country.

The comments are just the latest wound to the Venezuelan exile community in South Florida and across the country. Many moved to the United States because they didn't want to live under Chávez's rule, and now fear their country will be more divided, with Chávez alienating its Jewish community.
