by Chris Carlson - Venezuelanalysis.com | Monday, March 03, 2008 (venezuelanalysis.com) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez labeled Colombia the "Israel of Latin America" on his Sunday talk show Aló Presidente yesterday.

"The Colombian government has turned into the Israel of Latin America," said Chavez during his show on Sunday.
