Manuel Zelaya is supported by the Israel-bashing, Jew-baiting Hugo Chavez, who is teaming up with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran on a variety of fronts.
So this NY Times report about anti-Semitic comments by a prominent Zelaya supporter comes as no surprise:
Mr. [David] Romero, a host for Radio Globo, which supports the ousted President, Manuel Zelaya, said on Sept. 25: “There are times when I ask myself if Hitler was or was not correct in finishing with that race with the famous Holocaust. If there is a people that do damage in this country, they are Jewish, they are Israelis.”
Zelaya, according to The Times, has “sought to distance himself from anti-Semitism.” This is the same Manuel Zelaya who just days ago blamed Israeli agents for targeting him, so Zelaya’s “distancing” rings hollow, as The Times notes:
In phone calls to the media, Mr. Zelaya has charged that Israeli mercenaries had attacked the embassy with high-frequency radio waves and toxic gases. The de facto government has been criticized for such attacks, but there is no evidence of any Israeli involvement.
There are only about 100 Jewish families in Honduras, which just goes to show that you don’t need Jews around to have anti-Semitism.
Will this be enough for the Obama administration to side with the constitutional government of Honduras (our ally, friend and supporter) against Zelaya and Chavez? Another “don’t hold your breath on that one” moment, I’m sure.
