Chavez: Israel is cursed terrorist murderer

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez once again condemned Israel's raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla. In a speech broadcast on Venezuelan television, Chavez said, "Israel is a cursed, terrorist murderer, long live the Palestinian people."


He also criticized the American response to the raid, which he said was too soft. "The Obama administration condemns terror, as long as it is not carried out by the US or Israel," he said. (AFP)
