Venezuela Refuses Visas to Israelis

Venezuela stops issuing tourist visas to Israelis

Venezuela has ceased issuing tourist visas to Israelis, its embassy in Israel said Monday, accenting Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's harsh criticism of Israel.

However, a Venezuelan official claimed the halt was technical in nature. Chavez had called Israel's Lebanon campaign "a new Holocaust" (they set the bar for new Holocausts pretty low these days, don't they? Not to mention the bar for world leaders too)
