Chavista cognitive dissonance


Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez slamemd the Israeli government as “genocidal” on Wednesday in an interview on Al-Jazeera television in Doha.
“The Hebrew people do not deserve this genocidal, murderous government,” said Chavez, who is in the Qatari capital, where he attended an Arab-Latin American summit on Tuesday.
Calling for “solidarity with the Palestinian people,” he said “we have broken (diplomatic) relations with Israel and have no plans to restore them, even less so now.”

El Universal:

Venezuela’s Hugo Chávez announced on Tuesday that he invited Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir to visit Venezuela, thus supporting the Sudanese ruler, who faces an international bench warrant issued by the International Criminal Court (ICC).
“I spoke with al-Bashir and asked him about the risks he is facing when he visits a foreign country. I invited him to visit Caracas, and I told him, ‘I hope you do not have any problem there,'” Chávez said during his speech in the 2nd Arab-South American Summit (ASPA), held on Tuesday in Doha, EFE reported.
The decision of the ICC to issue an international arrest warrant for Omar al-Bashir for alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur, is “a legal eyesore and a political abuse, not only for Sudan but for the people of the third world,” claimed the Venezuelan ruler.

    I wonder what type of airplane can fly non-stop from Sudan to Venezuela? Prolly a very large one, otherwise it would have to land somewhere that the arrest order could be carried out by police of the country where the plane lands. They could also force the plane to land by air force jets while enroute if they had good intel as to when he was flying there. Hmmmm such a juicy thought, eh?
