Jews of Venezuela Being Watched by “Big Brother”

Leaked documents show that Jewish community is being spied on

According to leaked documents, the Jews of Venezuela are experiencing a scenario not unlike that described in George Orwell’s 1949 classic novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four, in that “Big Brother” is apparently watching them.

The documents, which come from the spy agency itself, infer that Venezuela's secret service, SEBIN, is spying on the country's Jewish community.

Analisis24, an Argentinean news source, recently released 50 documents coming from the Venezuelan intelligence agency which include personal information about the country’s Jewish citizens, as well as Jewish organizations and Israeli diplomats living in Latin America.

The Anti Defamation League ADL, which believes the documents are authentic, calls the latest news more evidence of Hugo Chavez's anti-Jewish sentiment.

"It is chilling to read reports that the SEBIN received instructions to carry out clandestine surveillance operations against members of the Jewish community, as described in detail in documents leaked by the Argentinean website Analisis24," wrote the ADL in a statement. "In a country where the government and some of its followers have publicly accused the Jewish community of disloyalty and where the community's institutions and houses of worship have been attacked, reports of this kind of surveillance add fuel to an already incendiary atmosphere inciting prejudice and hate."
