In a further blow to the Zionist regime Coast Ricaâs 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 countryâs ambassador from Apartheid Israel. Costa Ricaâs decision will leave El Salvador as the only country in the world with an embassy in Jerusalem in contravention of international law which doesnât 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 regimeâs 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 âposthumous homage to the innocent Lebanese people massacred by the Israeli military in this latest atrocity committed against the Arab people.â
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez today launched a fundraising drive for the Lebanese and Palestinian people who he termed âheroic peopleâ and condemned the âgenocidal and fascist hand of Israel, and its masters, the U.S. empire.â
