Henrique Capriles Radonski ~ leader of the Venezuelan opposition ~ vows to downgrade ties with Iran and cut subsidized oil to Cuba and Nicaragua, should he get into power. What is more, his coalition has links to Israel, and both of his parents are Jewish, though he claims to be a ‘fervent Catholic’.
“On his first day in office, he said, he would halt the “gifts” of free or heavily-subsidized oil to Mr. Chavez’s left-wing ideological allies in Cuba and Nicaragua.”
The “cosy relationship with Iran would end“, because “Venezuela needs good relations with countries that have democracy and respect human rights“.
“The expropriations were a big mistake, the whole policy has been a fiasco,”…”Nothing works now. Venezuela has 30 million hectares of fertile land but we only use less than 10 per cent of it and we now import 80 per cent of our food, including rice from the so-called US ‘imperialists’.”
“our (the opposition) disposition to reestablish relations with the State of Israel under a new government presided by Henrique Capriles Radonski”…“In contrast to the current political policy in Venezuela, Capriles will re-establish our historical ties”
“access to [Venezuela's] resources” should Rodonski take the presidential election.
‘His maternal grandparents were Jews‘.Well, as far as ‘Israel’ is concerned, that would make his mother a Jew, which makes him a Jew.
“Israel has repeatedly ignored the calls of the United Nations, consistently and shamelessly violating the resolutions approved by overwhelming majorities of member countries, increasingly placing itself on the margin of international law…Israel’s state terrorism has cost the lives of the most vulnerable and innocent: children, women, and the elderly“.
