This press review focuses mainly on news on the government of Venezuela. There is also an op-ed on Jews and Judaism, entitled "Zionism created a worldwide political crisis, but there won't be a war" by the Venezuelan pro-Chavez publication Aporrea. The article uses a vehement antisemitic discourse.

According to the annual report on antisemitism by the Argentinean organization DAIA, hate against Jews in Venezuela grew since President Hugo Chavez came to power through elections in 1999. The Venezuelan President is "promoting a stereotyped vision of the Jew, described as a usurer and a money-lender."

Op-Ed: The essence of Judaism is to be found in capitalism, money and usury

"And while capitalism will continue to exist in the bourgeoisie, Jews will propagate in its own entrails. […] Judaism imposed a general empire. It managed to alienate men and women and nature itself, transforming them into corruptive things, into objects dedicated to serve the selfish need, into traffic and usury, as comrade Marx remarked.

The essence of Judaism is not to be found in the Pentateuch or in the Torah, but in the realities of capitalism. For this reason, the Jew is not an abstract person, but a deeply empirical being. This means that Judaism will reach its end with the advanced realities of communism, in which there won't be a State, social classes, antagonist contradictions. There'll be instead an enlightened humanity, sciences and technology will be available to all human beings, the kingdom of freedom will prevail over the one of necessity, everyone will work according to one's own capacity and will receive goods according to one's own need. And, most importantly, money and usury, which are at the base of Judaism, will disappear.

During the first visit of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad in Caracas, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez announced that a Venezuelan-built and supplied oil refinery would be operating in Syria by 2013. "I plan to go and place the first stone to initiate its construction during a visit to Syria before the end of this year," explained Chavez. "In 2013, it should be operating and processing Venezuelan oil, Iranian oil and the oil from our other allies in OPEC."

Chavez also announced, that "until we finish building the refinery, we will send diesel fuel to Syria." The refinery in Syria will be owned 33% by Venezuela, with participation from Iran and Malaysia. Venezuela has allocated a budget of $4.7 billion USD to build the Syrian refinery.

President Evo Morales: "I will not hesitate to expel USAID from Bolivia"

During the meeting in Ecuador of the Bolivarian Alliance of the Americas (ALBA), created in 2001, Bolivian President Evo Morales spoke out against United States's "interference" – more specifically USAID - in his country, accused of financing the political opposition. "If this new type of meddling doesn't stop, I will not hesitate to expel USAID from Bolivia. Don't come to conspire against our democracies and our true sovereignty. The indigenous people, since the time of our ancestors, are anti-imperialist and we will continue to fight." For his part, President Chavez criticized the presence of US military bases in Venezuela's neighbor, Colombia.

The meeting was attended by President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, Evo Morales of Bolivia, Rafael Correa of Ecuador, as well as representatives from the other ALBA nations of Nicaragua, Cuba, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Dominica, and Antigua and Barbuda. Representatives from Guatemala and Paraguay also attended the summit as guest observers.
