Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has ordered the expulsion of the Israeli Ambassador to Venezuela in a show of solidarity with the civilians suffering under the Israeli assault on the densely populated strip.
Chavez previously called on Venezuelan Jews to speak out over the 'murderers' in Tel Aviv saying “Now I hope that the Venezuelan Jewish community speaks out against this barbarism. Do it. Don't you strongly reject all acts of persecution?”
He also said that if the world had any conscience both the Israeli President and US president would stand before an International court to answer for themselves over Gaza. He also called the IDF cowards “bombing innocent people.”
