A recent request by socialist Venezuelean President Hugo Chávez to pay an official visit to a Chabad synagogue in Caracas was rejected.
The Chabad official news site posted an article saying that Rabbi Moshe Ferman, the chief Chabad envoy to Venezuela, had rejected the president’s request arguing that it was aimed at garnering political gains in light of the West’s revulsion of him.
I picture Haman Harasha to look much like Chavez. There’s a little Purim feeling to this: a Jew refuses to bow to an evil man’s wishes. Layihudim Hayisah Orah Vesimchah Vesasson Veeyikar, KAIN TIHYEH LAUNU !
