Venezuela Congressman: Zionists, Bush Family Financed Hitler

Earlier this week, we learned that the website of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has been updated, providing, to his Arabic-speaking subjects, the complete collection of his "awards," citations, and also, displaying the dozen plus books he's written over the course of his career.

One book in particular was entitled "The Other Side: The Secret Relationship Between Nazism and Zionism," where he alleges that the "Zionists" colluded with the Nazis to exterminate the Jews.

The book also illustrates his doubts on how many Jews were actually murdered, if the gas chambers actually existed, and other such offensive rhetoric.

Mr. Abbas, I refer you to the digital tour of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp currently online, in a bid to educate cretins such as yourself on the horrors that took place between 1939 and 1945.

Despite the overwhelming evidence that disputes Abbas' claims, he naturally has an abundance of followers, one of whom seems to be Venezuelan Congressman and lawmaker Adel El Zabayar.

It seems El Zabayar was an avid reader of Abbas' materials, or other such anti-Semitic propaganda, who reaffirmed in a recent interview the notion that it was indeed the "Zionists" that financed Hitler and the Third Reich.

Oh, and the Busy Family too.

As reported by JTA, the congressman, a member of Venezuela's National Assembly, told Al Manar TV - a network sponsored by Hezollah, with its HQ in Lebanon - that “In order to understand what is happening today in the Middle East and what happened in the world in the First and Second World Wars we must examine the original Zionist conspiracy."

He continues.

“If we look into who financed Hitler before World War II, we will see that the main financiers were the Zionists — the Bush family, in fact. The Bush family made its fortune as a result of what happened in World War II. The goal was to destroy Europe in order to impose the American economy and the dollar currency on it,” he said.

Ohhh. Of course. How did we all miss that?

As translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), El Zabayar noted that “If you study the history of the killing of the Jews in Europe, you find that Hitler killed those Jews who belonged to progressive organizations.”

“You will not find in those lists representatives of global Zionism," he added. "In 1934 they even issued a coin representing the friendship between Zionism and German Nazism.”

It's also worth noting that if you visit El Zabayar's twitter page, you'll find a photo of him, rifle in hand (that's the photo above). The lawmaker is also a member of the Venezuelan Federation of Arab Associations (FEARAB) - coincidence that it spells the word 'fear'?

In the wake of his utterly offensive, and extremely misinformed statements, a Latin American Jewish group has called for his removal from office, writing a letter to Deputy Elias Castillo, President of the Latin American Parliament.

The letter was written by Dr. Shimon Samuels, director for International Relations of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, and also Sergio Widder, the Center’s director for Latin America, insisting that Castillo "call on Venezuela’s National Assembly to divest El Zabayar of his immunity and remove him from national politics on grounds of incitement and endangering the safety of Venezuela’s Jewish community.”

According to Samuels, “El Zabayar uses Nazi tactics of the big lie and bogus conspiracy theories to incite hatred, bringing shame to all parliamentarians… The PARLATINO [the Latin American Parliament] must condemn him for violation of its own ‘Declaration against Anti-Semitism,’ adopted from a draft proposal presented by our Center. El Zabayar’s offense reveals how far Jihadist anti-Semitic rhetoric has become mainstream in Venezuela, with a potential for spreading throughout Latin America.”
