Chavez is part of the band of rogue brothers who consider the US as enemy numero uno and Morocco being a traditional ally of the US is therefore their enemy too, so what do they do to punish Morocco for that? They go ahead and recognize the Sahara as an independent state belonging to a bunch of thugs known as the Polisario, just to stab Morocco in the back.
Morocco says OK that's it, you're out! We've had enough of your nonsense!
RABAT (Reuters) - Morocco said on Thursday it had closed its embassy in Venezuela in protest over Caracas's support of the Polisario Front, which seeks an independent state in Western Sahara that Rabat claims as its territory.
The Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the decision followed "increasing hostility by the Venezuelan authorities regarding the Kingdom of Morocco's territorial integrity and recent measures to support (Polisario)".
So then Chavez puts his Arab adviser up in front of a mic, who then starts calling Morocco a Zionist lover to stir up anti-Morocco sentiment on the Arab street just to hurt Morocco some more...oldest trick ever I tell ya. It's beyond childish.
Kabchi is cited frequently in the local government press as a Middle East specialist and often is quoted referring to the “Zionist lobby.”
For example, Morocco's decision to sever diplomatic ties with Venezuela in 2009 following Chavez’s expulsion of the Israeli ambassador was, in Kabshi’s opinion, “a decision meant to serve the interests of the world Zionist lobby.”
Most of Venezuela’s small Jewish community is Sephardic, of Moroccan descent.
