Chavez and Hassan Nasrallah in the same league

Posted in Uncategorized by fartashphoto on August 28, 2010

During the Iranian Industries and Mines Minister Ali-Akbar Mehrabian’s visit to Caracas, the two countries established some technical workgroups to accelerate their joint projects.

Heading an industrial and economic delegation the Iranian minister left Tehran for Caracas on Wednesday.

 During his visit, Mehrabian has held meetings with the Venezuelan Vice President Ramiro Valdés Menendez and the nation’s Minister of Science and Technology.

 Mehrabian also opened Iran’s industrial capacities show in Venezuela on Thursday. As we know Iran’s regime offered to help Venezuela for its uranium mining also.

 Over 30 Iranian companies active in different fields such as oil and refinery, carpet and handicrafts, dried nuts and foods, tractor and automobile manufacturing, and home appliances are showcasing their latest achievements in the 4-day event.

 Iran has carried out several projects in Venezuela including car and tractor manufacturing units, 13 dairy factories, and cement production units.

 In January, the Iranian Ministry of Industries and Mines announced that 70 projects, mostly run by private sector companies, were being implemented in Venezuela.

 The projects are mostly in the areas of automobile and tractor manufacturing and the construction of cement and dairy factories.

Chavez pledged that Venezuela would “stay by Iran at any time and under any condition”. Ahmadinejad called Chavez a kindred spirit. “I feel I have met a brother and trench mate after meeting Chavez.” Chavez said he “admired the Iranian president for ‘his wisdom and strength'”, saying, “We are with you and with Iran forever. As long as we remain united we will be able to defeat (U.S.) imperialism, but if we are divided they will push us aside.”

Hezbollah also has ties with Venezuela and has demonstrated a keen interest in extending its activities to other parts of Latin America. As of the early 1990s, Hezbollah had established a presence in the tri-border area between Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. This lawless zone enables the Khomeinist network to develop illegal financial activities and train and plan for terrorist attacks in the region. The 1992 bombing of the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires and the 1994 bombing of a Jewish center there are prime examples of Tehran’s terrorist activities and global reach.

Al Jazeera’s Dima Khatib, reports that Chavez was the first head of state to harshly condemn Israel over the Israeli-Lebanon conflict, even before any Arab or Muslim country. His decision to withdraw his charge d’affaires from Tel Aviv has created a following in the Arab world so dedicated that “many [Arabs] declare they are ‘ready to die for’ Chavez.” Khatib says that “The sure thing is that in the mind of millions of Arabs, Chavez is now in the same league as Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, and other ‘heroic’ Arab figures.”
