Bn’ai Brith Venezuela compiles a weekly list of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel news pieces from the main media in the country. Most of these articles have shocking titles or content, which is why it is important to translate this list into English and diffuse it globally. I try to translate as closely as possible to the Spanish version, so that the essence of the information is preserved. I have also searched for the original article on the internet, if it is available.
SPECIAL NOTE: I have left the Spanish term "Cisjordania" instead of substituting it for "Judea and Samaria", "the West Bank", "the disputed territories", or similar expressions, since each name carries its own connotation.
