Venezuela: Post-Flotilla Reactions in Venezuela

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) published a report about rising anti-Semitism in Venezuela, in the aftermath of the Gaza flotilla incident. The report includes a list of remarks made by Hugo Chaves and some other key government officials, as well as a list of articles from the Venezuelan press.

As per usual, Aporrea published heavy anti-Israel and anti-Semitic content. ADL translated excerpts of some of the articles since the flotilla incident. However, it is interesting to see the amount of articles (of course, pejorative) that were published about the matter in early June. Links to Aporrea's archive (in Spanish, but it is possible to understand key words): June 1 June 2 June 3 June 4 June 5 June 6 June 7 Translations using GoogleTranslate: June 1 June 2 June 3 June 4 June 5 June 6 June 7

Lastly, the ADL also compiled anti-Israel and anti-Semitic cartoons from the Venezuelan media that relate to the flotilla accident.

It is a shame what has become of Venezuela. We can only hope that the situation does not get much worse and that the world is well-informed of the extreme anti-Israel and anti-Semitic movements that this country is producing, many times sponsored or even generated by Chaves’ government.
