I followed one of the links given in another contribution, and found
on the website of the US foreign ministry this "International Religious
Freedom Report 2005" by a "Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor"
which says among others:
"The country is a historically open society without significant
anti-Semitism; however, the Government and its supporters occasionally
demonstrated possible anti-Semitism."
and that makes me think that without a tradition of antisemitism,
people of that society are not trained to realize that what they say
might be exploited as an antisemitic slur.
This international noise about this allegoric formulation by Hugo
Chávez could cause him to be more conspicuous about his choice of
allegories in order to avoid giving the imperialists a breach they can
