Venezuela's Leader Made Fast Friends With Terror Sponsors

The National Emergency Coalition declares that Colonel Chavez and his government are a clear and present danger to the safety and security of the citizenry of Venezuela and to the stability of the American hemisphere and democracy in Latin America.


1. Less than one month after taking office, Colonel Chavez wrote letters to the world’s most dangerous terrorist, Carlos "The Jackal” (Illich Ramirez Sanchez) addressing him as "Distinguished Compatriot.” Chavez has advocated the release of Carlos from the French jail where he is imprisoned for murdering a French policeman. Chavez has ordered the use of government funds and Venezuelan Embassy officials to pressure the French government to release Carlos. Chavez wrote to the terrorist: "everything has its time, a time to gather stones or a time to throw them … with profound faith in the cause and the mission, for now and for always."

2. Colonel Chavez held meetings with the Libyan sponsor of world terrorism, Moammar Gadhafi and referred publicly to the Libyan dictator as a "hero,” to the western world as "criminal” for its actions against Gadhafi and to Libya as a "model of participatory democracy.” In Tripoli, Chavez declared, "Our struggles are the same, as well as our ideals.”

3. Chavez is the only western president to embrace Saddam Hussein and the Iraqi government. Chavez praised the totalitarian government of Iraq as a "model” for Venezuela and promised close cooperation and increased cultural exchange. According to America’s CBS News, Iraq's intelligence services were in close contact with terrorists involved in the horrific attacks on New York and Washington.

4. Chavez met with the leaders of the fundamentalist dictatorship of Iran where he referred to the Iranian hostilities against the West as a "worthy” Holy War. Later, he declared to the Venezuelan people that Iran and Venezuela were in the throes of "sister revolutions” with equal struggles and the same destiny.

5. Chavez and his government have funneled weapons, munitions, intelligence, and funding to the terrorist guerillas of Colombia: both the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and the National Liberation Army (ELN). Chavez has hosted these Colombian terrorists in Venezuela and invited the public spokesman of the FARC terrorist group to speak on the floor of Venezuela’s National Assembly. Colombia’s government has documented the use of Venezuelan military equipment by the terrorist death squads in Colombia. Including the seizure of standard issue weaponry of the Venezuelan army at a checkpoint 50 kilometers from the Colombian border. To date, Colombia’s bloody civil war has killed some 200,000 people, mostly civilians. Chavez declared: "The Colombian Guerillas are not the enemies of Venezuela” and blamed Colombian civil society for the civil war in that country.

6. The Chavez government has harbored and allowed the safe and unhindered passage of scores of international criminals and terrorists, including a Colombian terrorist responsible for hijacking a commercial airliner in 1999. Specific and documented cases also include protection of Peruvian criminal Vladimir Montesinos (chief supplier of weapons to terrorist groups in Colombia) granted by the Minister of the Interior and the state security apparatus. Additionally, the Minister of Defense has personally aided numerous Middle Eastern intelligence and terrorism operatives working in Venezuela.

7. Two weeks ago, Chavez heaped praise on Cuban dictator Fidel Castro and his island prison and hailed numerous unlawful economic and military accords: "Now we can talk of a single team. This isn’t two teams any more, this is a single Cuban-Venezuelan, Venezuelan-Cuban team.” Chavez has stated that Cuba and Venezuela are "swimming together toward the same sea of happiness.”

8. The Chavez government has illegally used state funds for the propagation of a "revolutionary message” by his personal political party. There is currently no distinction between party activities and the activities of the government. This has marred trade union elections as Chavez seeks to eliminate the only existing public opposition to his dictatorship: the laborers and their unions. Chavez threatened: "If for some reason this attempt to forge a revolution without arms fails, what will come next will be a revolution with arms.”

9. Colonel Chavez has publicly threatened to expel any foreigner who makes negative comments about the government or the country. In June, the head of Venezuela's national police force encouraged Venezuelans to denounce foreigners who spoke badly of the country. Venezuela is in the process of becoming an abyss of anarchy and violent conflict.

For all of the above, and with a legal basis in articles 46, 51, 55, 57, 75, 93, 99,102, 130, 131, 132, 322, 326, 328, 329, 333, 337 and especially article 236 of our Magna Carta; constitution that with impunity and criminally is everyday violated by the executive branch, as well as articles 232 and 233 of that same constitution of the Republic of Venezuela that dictates the powers and duties of the president.
