Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez, is comparing Israel's activities in Lebanon to what Hitler did to the Jews. "They are doing what Hitler did against the Jews." Chavez said to Al Jazeera and on his radio program Chavez condemned the Israeli attacks and accused the Jewish state of committing a "new Holocaust" with the help of the United States, which Chavez called a "terrorist" country.

"Israel has gone mad and is inflicting on the people of Palestine and Lebanon the same thing they have criticized, and with reason: the Holocaust. But this is a new Holocaust." Chávez said.

The Jewish Anti-Defamation League responded: "Clearly, President Chavez needs a reality check when it comes to the Middle East conflict."
