"The Colombian government has turned into the Israel of Latin America...similar to Israel in the Middle East, Colombia is invading, bombing and killing the Palestinian people with the intention of preventing a union of the Arabic world...It is the fist of the Empire...we are not going to let them plant another Israel here in Latin America."

(On Chavez's show Alo Presidente, after the Colombian government killed Raul Reyes, the second in command of the terrorist organization FARC)
