Venezuela: Do the Actions of the Chávez Government in Support of Palestine Reflect the Views of the People?

  12 January 2009

In Venezuela, the conflict in the Middle East is a little closer to home due to the actions of the government of President Hugo Chávez. In addition to the explusion of the Israeli ambassador in Caracas, there have been other moves by the government and its supporters indicating that Chávez has come out strongly in favor of Palestine and against the actions of Israel. However, some bloggers' opinions indicate that the government's point of view may not speak for the entire country.
