The Anti-Defamation League has raised the alarm over the use of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel rhetoric by supporters of ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya:
"From President Zelaya himself down to media pundits and political activists, there has been a troubling undercurrent of anti-Semitism in the situation in Honduras," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. "We know from history that at times of turmoil and unrest, Jews are a convenient scapegoat, and that is happening now in Honduras, a country that has only a small Jewish minority."
These statements include Zelaya's unsubstantiated claim that Israeli mercenaries were attacking the Brazilian embassy where he has taken refuge. Venezuelan Hugo Chavez has also falsely claimed that Israeli is the only country that has recognized the coup government. More disturbing was a rant from David Romero, news director of the pro-Zelaya Radio Globo, who described Jews as "people that do damage in this country" and mused, "After what I have learned, I ask myself why, why didn't we let Hitler carry out his historic mission?"
The claims of a Jewish conspiracy are particularly strange since there are almost no Jews in Honduras -- only about 100 families.

Zelaya started this himself with those bizarre claims that Israeli agents were bombarding him with radiation (if true he should resemble a nice toasty Hot Pocket by now...)
Circumventing a nation's constitution IS a "coup."
I heard MSNBC referring to “the military coup” in Honduras, and had to think about what they meant for a minute. In commieland, not allowing a commie to declare himself dictator-for-life is a “military coup”.
Chavez persecuted the Jews in Venezuela. Z-man is Chavez's commie stooge dictator. Chavez was staging a coup to override the Constitutional deposing of Z-man.
Do most Jews even know where Honduras is? This is bizarre!
We’re just getting them back for the Inquisition.
Another reason for Obama to love Zelaya.
Evidence that the Chavezistas are losing in the court of public opinion.
Can anyone please explain to me why Jews are overwhelmingly liberal when just about every non-Jewish liberal is a raving antisemite?
The democr@ps, from zero to Sen Kerry to their statist buddies at State support Zeleya despite (because of?) this anti-Sematism. But American Jews still overwhelmingly support the democr@ps.
When are American Jews going to wake the eff up?!?!!
If true, there's a bunch of incompetents at Mossad who need new jobs.
I didn’t expect a kind of Spanish Inquisition!
Abe Foxman is just looking for a payoff of some kind. The guy is the Jewish version of Al Sharpton.
NOBODY EXPECTS THE SPA....
Um, because they live in NYC, NJ, and MA where everyone is a liberal?
