Costa Rica to move embassy out of Jerusalem

In a further blow to the Zionist regime Coast Rica’s new president has announced it is to move its embassy from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv. This move comes two weeks after Venezuela decided to recall its country’s ambassador from Apartheid Israel. Costa Rica’s decision will leave El Salvador as the only country in the world with an embassy in Jerusalem in contravention of international law which doesn’t recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the Occupation.

Costa Rican President Oscar Arias, a former Nobel Peace Prize winner, said he made the decision to win more friends in the Middle East and comply with United Nations’ resolutions. Palestinian solidarity activists and social movements have been passing motions and filling the streets in demonstrations recently to protest the Zionist regime’s human rights abuses and violations of international law.

The Costa Rican trade union ANEP (National Association of public and private sector employees) saw this decision as a ‘posthumous homage to the innocent Lebanese people massacred by the Israeli military in this latest atrocity committed against the Arab people.’

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez today launched a fundraising drive for the Lebanese and Palestinian people who he termed ‘heroic people’ and condemned the ‘genocidal and fascist hand of Israel, and its masters, the U.S. empire.’
