TEHRAN, February 21 (MNA) – Modern Israel enjoys “the same encouragement, the same funding, and the same support” of the collective West like Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany before the World War II, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said.The president made the remarks on his TV program With Maduro Plus, backing the assessment of the situation in the Middle East provided recently by his Brazilian counterpart Lula da Silva.

“Powerful family names in the US, Europe, and London supported and celebrated Hitler’s arrival to power in 1933.

They encouraged him and allowed him to persecute my Jewish ancestors,” Maduro stated, Russia Today reported.The president made public his Jewish ancestry back in the early 2010s, revealing his grandparents were Sephardic Jews who converted to Catholicism The Western elites “kept quiet because they were preparing Hitler for him to launch his military power against the Soviet Union,” Maduro explained, stressing that, ultimately, Hitler was “a construct, a monster” created by the collective West.

Modern Israel has turned into the very same thing, the president asserted, urging Jewish people who are still true to their roots to end the ongoing “massacre” of the Palestinians.

“The criminal military apparatus of the State of Israel also has the same encouragement, the same funding, and the same support” of the West, Maduro stressed.

“As President Lula da Silva said, the Israeli government is doing the same thing [to the Palestinians] that Hitler did to the Jewish people.” Brazil’s da Silva delivered the explosive remarks over the weekend, describing Israel’s military action against Hamas in Gaza as “genocide” and “slaughter.” SD/PR
