Venezuela Selling Uranium to Iran? Israel Thinks So

May 26, 2009

(ChattahBox)—According to the Israeli online news site, Ynetnews, Venezuela may be supplying Iran with uranium for its nuclear development program, with Bolivia suspected as a supplier of the nuclear material, as well.

This information comes courtesy of a leaked Israeli Foreign Ministry report prepared in advance of Israel Foreign Minister, Avigdor Lieberman’s trip to South America next week.

Iran’s increasing push to develop its nuclear capabilities is a huge concern to Israel, the United States and other Western nations, as a dangerous destabilizing force in the Middle East. With Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s increasing anti-Israel rhetoric of late, Israel is concerned an Iranian nuclear warhead would be aimed directly towards the tiny Jewish state.

Ahmadinejad frequently attacks Israel in his speeches and statements, denying the Holocaust calling it “a myth,” and calling Zionists “the most detested people in all humanity.” Dozens of diplomats walked out of a recent UN anti-racism conference during a speech by the Iranian president, describing Israel as “totally racist”.

Iran has forged ties with Venezuelan strongman, Hugo Chavez for the last several years, especially during the term of President Ahmadinejad, to unite together in an “anti-imperialism” campaign with the goal of “bringing America to its knees.”

Despite increasing sanctions from Western nations and global pressure to cease its nuclear program, Iran has forged ahead, claiming it’s a peaceful program of enrichment to build a nuclear power plant. It’s thought Iran is bypassing the Security Council’s economic sanctions by obtaining uranium from Venezuela and other sources.

Hugo Chavez and Ahmadinejad, both demonize and make a point of defying the U.S. and Israel is concerned that their anti-Western influence will spread like a plague throughout Latin America, with their call for “liberation from the American imperialism,” according to the report.

According to the Israeli Foreign Ministry report, Chavez is opening diplomatic doors throughout Latin America for Iran, enabling Iran to set up Hizbullah terror cells in Venezuela. Hizbullah is a Lebanese Shia Muslim political group responsible for the bombing of the U.S. embasy and marine headquarters in Beirut in 1983.

Hizbullah is committed to the destruction of Israel and to removing all Westerners from Lebanon. The group is listed as a terrorist organization by the U.S. and other nations and it receives support and funding from Iran and Syria.

The Israel Foreign Ministry report calls for drawing attention to Iran’s human rights violations when visiting Latin America, as a means to combat Iran’s growing influence in the region.

Meanwhile, a recent poll conducted by Tel Aviv University shows 50 percent of Israelis in support of striking Iran’s nuclear facilities immediately, before giving diplomacy a chance.

    Ynet is a propaganda site and not reliable. Iran is not likely to be importing uranium form Venezualy as it has uranium within its own borders. This is just an attempt for a right wing site to create a guilt by association structure. We can remember this from the axis of evil speach by Bush and its repeated use by C. Rice.

    I’ve also been attacked by Y-net with the assumption being: I live in Germany therefore I am a nazi sympathiser. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    Just to mention the AP ‘broke’ the same story so I don’t think it’s Ynet propaganda.
