Venezuela Reportedly Spying on Jewish Community
INN ^ | 1/31/2013, 3:54 PM | Rachel Hirshfeld

Reports that the Venezuelan intelligence agency is targeting and spying on the Venezuelan Jewish community as well as on Venezuelan companies and organizations with ties to Israel is deeply troubling, asserted the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).

“We are deeply troubled by a recent news report alleging that the Venezuelan Intelligence Service (SEBIN) is spying on the Venezuelan Jewish community,” said ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman.

“Venezuela under the regime of Hugo Chavez has a history of harassing the Jewish community in that country,” he said. “It is chilling to read reports that the SEBIN received instructions to carry out clandestine surveillance operations against members of the Jewish community, as described in detail in documents leaked by the Argentinean web site, Analisis24.” …

Throughout history it has been true that people of evil disposition fear and despise the Jews.

Antisemitism is a red flag that lets you know which people and governments are not to be trusted.

The wave of antisemitism being displayed by the progressives in our own country is very disturbing.... I feel like it’s the thirties all over again.

I sense that return to the 1930s too.

A little known fact is that the Jewish community overwhelmingly supported Chavez...very enthusiastically.

Now they cannot leave the country with more than $250.00, have had much of their land taken. Today’s life in Venezuela is pure misery.
I know people “stuck” there.

Maybe Foxman should go to his buddy Obama and get Obama to tell his commie buddy, Chavez to back off.

Chavez’s mentor was very anti-semitic, so it’s not surprising to see this.

“Now they cannot leave the country with more than $250.00”

Coming soon to the USA?

Right now American Jews can immigrate to Israel without restriction. In five years or so
will an Arab-friendly US government try to clamp a lid on immigration/and or the transfer of assets to Israel,

to “pressure” Israel?

(Once I would have counted that out as a possibility; now
it speaks volumes that I actually can consider it as a real
possibility...)

I find it amazing that the ADL is complaining about someone else doing the spying, given the ADL's history of accumulating dossiers on Americans they do not like.

Socialism is anti-Semitic???? You cannot be serious, the Jews are the foundation and proprietors of Socialism, they installed and ran Communist Russia, they infested the FDR WH and gave Stalin Eastern Europe. Jews love Collectivism and they strive to be on the top of the heap of collectivistic crap! ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman needs to be deported, he is an enemy of this country!

Those are non-religious liberal types. Don’t irreligious “Christians” lean towards socialism also?

How True. I didn’t know that there was a Jewish population of any significance in Venezuela until reading this.

Venezuelan Intelligence vs. The Israelites
(February 3, 2013)

SNIPPET: “A note about language is in order before I go any further. It is common for Latin American Jews to identify as Israelitas (Israelites) as opposed to Judios (Jews). The reason for this is simple: being a member of the Tribe is not synonymous with being a religious Jew. The term for Israelis is ‘Israelies’.”

SNIPPET: “For the purpose of this discussion we will assume they are what they appear to be. I’ve uploaded my own subset, converted to PDF (the originals are Word .doc’s). They provide a sense of what VE intelligence finds threatening, and what they think they know about their enemies - particularly the Mossad. The documents also provide a glimpse of the minutiae of VE counterintelligence tradecraft.”

“Iran, Venezuela Plotting Attacks ‘Worse than 9/11’”
by Anna Mahjar-Barducci

January 13, 2012 at 4:30 am

SNIPPET: “Tensions are mounting between the U.S. and Venezuela as the State Department decided to expel Livia Acosta Noguera, the Venezuelan consul in Miami, declaring her “persona non grata.” The Venezuelan consul was implicated in an alleged plot to launch cyber attacks on U.S. nuclear power facilities. The decision was taken as a direct result of the revelations made by the documentary The Iranian Threat, aired by the U.S Spanish language channel Univision.

In the film, the Venezuelan consul was caught on camera backing Iranian-sponsored cyber-attack against U.S. targets in 2007, when she was vice-secretary in the Venezuelan Embassy in Mexico. According to the documentary, these cyber-attacks would be “worse than 9-11.” The State Department did not want to comment on this decision. However, a U.S. high official stated that this expulsion is a serious issue, as “we do not take it lightly when we declare somebody persona non grata.””

“Venezuelan Minister Hangs Out With Hezbollah”
by Anna Mahjar-Barducci

February 11, 2011 at 3:15 am

SNIPPET: “Tarek Al-Aissami, the Venezuelan Minister of Interior and Justice, one of the key figures of the Chavez’s government, is accused by the media of having used this position to issue passports to members of Hamas and Hezbollah.

Born in Lebanon of Syrian descent in 1980; his father, Carlos Al-Aissami, was the head of the Venezuelan branch of the Iraqi Baath political party. According to reports, before the invasion of Iraq his father held a press conference in which he described himself as a Taliban and called Osama Bin Laden, “the great Mujahedeen, Sheik Osama bin Laden.”[1] The Minister’s great-uncle Shibli Al-Aissami was a prominent ideologist and assistant to the secretary general of the Baath party in Baghdad during the Saddam Hussein regime.[2]

The first question makes me think of the old sayings “the devil takes care of his own” and “it’s hard to kill a bad thing”. One may ask that question of Fidel Castro too.

As to the second question, officially nobody, but most likely it’s the top two guys, Nicolás Maduro and Diosdado Cabello.

“Detienen en Alemania al ex ministro iraní de Finanzas con un cheque de 300 MM de BsF”

February 4, 2013

SNIPPET: “El ex ministro de finanzas de Irán, Tahmasb Mazaheri, fue detenido en el aeropuerto de la ciudad alemán Düsseldorf con un cheque por valor de unos 70 millones de dólares, según informó el domingo la prensa alemana.

La semana pasada la aduana alemana detuvo a un extranjero de 59 años que había llegado en un vuelo de Turquía. Durante el registro en el aeropuerto de Düsseldorf, los oficiales realizaron búsquedas en el equipaje del hombre y encontraron un cheque por valor de 300 millones de bolívares (unos 70 millones de dólares) venezolanos emitido por el Banco de Venezuela. En ese momento los aduaneros no revelaron el nombre del detenido que resultó ser el político iraní.

Mazaheri fue ministro de Finanzas y Economía de la República Islámica de Irán hasta 2004, y desde 2007 hasta 2008 ocupó el puesto de jefe del Banco Central iraní.”

“Socialism is anti-Semitic???? You cannot be serious, the Jews are the foundation and proprietors of Socialism, they installed and ran Communist Russia...”

Yes, I’m serious and it is rather ironic that a lot of Jews suffered from a creation partly of their own making. Did you ever notice how many Jews fled Soviet Russia? I suspect Socialism has more problems with religious Jews than secular liberal Jews — after all, Socialism does not tolerate competing ideas, even from God.
