Chavez Calls IDF Cowards
To express solidarity with the Palestinian people, Venezuela expelled Israel’s ambassador, is organizing humanitarian aid, and has called on the international community to protest. In response, the Israeli government called Venezuela a terrorist state.
In the video clip Hugo Chavez calls the Israeli army cowardly and calls on Venezuelan Jews to be just and protest what Israel is doing. Toward the end of the clip Chavez looks directly into the camera and emphatically tells Venezuelan Jews, "Do it. Put your hands on your hearts and be just."
