BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:25 P.M.) – The Israeli media reported on Saturday, that “the leader of the Venezuelan opposition, Juan Guaidó, will work to resume relations with Israel after 11 years of estrangement caused by former President Hugo Chavez,” following the 2009 Gaza conflict.

According to the online newspaper Israel Hayom, the Venezuelan opposition leader “will seek to resume relations with Tel Aviv again.”

The newspaper said, “Guaidó has appointed a Venezuelan of Jewish origin, who is Rabbi Pinchas Brenner, who led the Jewish community in Venezuela for years, as an ambassador to Israel, and in preparation for this step, a virtual embassy was opened via the Internet.”

However, they said Israel has yet to recognize any ambassador to their country.

The late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez severed relations with Israel 11 years ago, in protest against the Israeli military operation at the time in the Gaza Strip.

His successor, Nicholas Maduro, would later follow suit and not restore ties with Israel.

He’s just an opportunist! Chavez/Maduro decided to side with Islamofascist Hamas in order to pi$$-off USA by taking antizionist posture. Guaido is way more clever : AIPAC is a powerful lobby in the USA : he gets AIPAC on his side, Chavez/Maduro ruined this asset then leaving free-hand to McCarthyist lobbies in USA, as a result, things only went worst for VZ since 2009… Even if I absolutely agree that Guaido has no legitimacy, he’s a better chess player than Maduro : he makes himself quality allies while Maduro totally miscalculates, even if he has the advantage of controlling the… Read more »

Because Chavez/Maduro did/do propaganda for Hamas (and Hamas would kill both if they lived in Gaza because they’re commie and Muslim Brotherhood=Hamas are even more fascist than the Nazis)

Nobody forced Chavez and Maduro to interfere into Israel’s domestic affairs : it’s not their business! If the next day of Venezuela independence, a 7 nation army had invaded and taken 21.4% of the territory (197034km² taken), then for 19 years, packing Arabs there at the point they end being even 20.9% of the VZ controlled area population (6,037,406 on 28,887,118) and end 15.94 millions in the 197034km² they control in Venezuela pretending the country fully belongs to them, I don’t think that Venezueellian would love those backing a plot to destroy their country from the start, especially when it’s… Read more »

Operation Cast Lead killed from 1166 to 1417 Gazans. It was a massacre. Chavez was right to cut ties with Israel. Guaido is nothing but a US puppet trying to suck up to Trump, but Trump is through with him.
