Chavez exports Islamic extremism

You couldn’t make it up.

US far right Christian fundamentalist Pat Robertson tells the world that Hugo Chavez, the left wing President of Venezuala, is exporting communism and Islamic fundamentalism.

Robertson accused Chavez, a left-wing populist with close ties to Cuban President Fidel Castro, of trying to make Venezuela “a launching pad for Communist infiltration and Muslim extremism all over the continent.”

Robertson’s solution to the problem? Easy, the US should assassinate Chavez as soon as possible.
