As the political crisis continues in Venezuela, the government of Nicolas Maduro, whose power is violently being challenged, is promoting hateful anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and allegations of Jewish or “Zionist” plots to take over the government.

The self-declared interim President Juan Guaidó, whose bid to take over the government is supported by only 25% of the global countrieschallenges Maduro’s power.

The result of the political, social and economic instability has created a ripe climate for conspiracy theories about Jews to flourish.

As a matter of fat, the Jewish diplomats have been ordered to leave Venezuela, together with the American, European Union and Colombian representatives who want Maduro to be replaced.

In the current crisis, Maduro and members of his government have invoked anti-Semitic tropes, including conspiracies of the USA and “Zionist” control of Guaidó.

Most recently, in a February 13 interview in al-Mayadeen, a Lebanese media outlet affiliated with Hezbollah, Maduro charged that Guaidó’s inner circle was full of CIA agents serving the multi-trillion “American and Zionist” oil and gold interests.

He further indicated that Venezuela and his government remain closely aligned with the Palestinian cause. Guaidó is a CIA agent and is serving the interests of the USA and Israel.

The Venezuelan people do not need Humanitarian Assistance that has an interventionist face, which is accompanied by military exercises on the Venezuela border by the Zionist army of Israel.

The U.S. imperialist Zionist government simply seeks to destroy the Bolivarian socialist revolution.

The Jewish presence in the country, which dates to the 19th Century and the time of Simon Bolivar, the founding father of Venezuela, has declined since 2000.

The opposition have been spewed in the past by the Bolivarian revolution, particularly Henrique Capriles Radonski and David Smolansky, two opposition leaders with Jewish heritage.

Capriles, who was twice a presidential candidate and a past political prisoner, was barred from running for office by the Maduro government.

Smolansky was forced into exile after the regime removed him from his post as mayor of a Caracas suburb in 2017 and was sentenced to jail.

In addition, Hezbollah’s documented presence in the region is deeply concerning,

Moreover, January 6, 2019 marked ten years of the breakdown of diplomatic relations between Venezuela and Israel, an event that still weighs heavily on the ardently Zionist Venezuelan Jewish community.

If a new transitional government is successful, there will likely be a re-establishment of diplomatic ties between Venezuela and Israel, which would be a horrible step for both countries.
