ChavezSee Venezuela News and Views, where guest blogger Alexandra Beech flags a notoriously anti-Semitic commentary more worthy of Julius Streicher. Beech translated a commentary by Tarek Muci Nasir published in El Diario Caracas, a mainstream daily that supports Hugo Chavez (pictured). No one snippet does justice to Nasir’s screed. The blog explains:

This piece is an absolute shame and it is unconceivable that a newspaper would publish such garbage, not even worthy of mediocre blogging. But it goes a long way in illustrating how silently but surely chavismo is seeding the plant of anti Semitism, a weed that opens the door to a series of murderous harvests for the future.
