In an interview with Al-Jazeera TV that aired on August 4, 2006,
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez expressed his solidarity with the
entire Arab people on the occasion of his birthday, stating that his
heart "beat along with millions of Arab hearts." He goes on to talk
about how Israel is "doing what Hitler did to the Jews," how the U.S.
is "like Count Dracula - always in search of blood and petrol," how
Nasser was "one of the greatest people in Arab history," and how
Al-Jazeera plays "a role in liberating the world."

The following are excerpts from the interview.


"I Have Crossed Deserts, I Have Ridden Camels, and I Have Sung Along
With the Bedouin"

Hugo Chavez: "I want to congratulate the people of Qatar, and its
leader, my friend and brother, Prince Hamad. From this pulpit, I send
my brotherly congratulations to the entire Arab people. I'm
celebrating my birthday in the heart of the Arab homeland, on Arab
land. What a happy coincidence! My heart beats along with millions of
Arab hearts. I could have been an Arab. I have crossed deserts, I
have ridden camels, and I have sung along with the Bedouin. I have
learned in those years to love and respect the Arab people."


Israel's Aggression is "Perpetrated in the Manner of Hitler"

"We feel that the Israeli aggression against the Palestinians and
against Lebanon is directed against us too. This aggression is
unjustified. It is perpetrated in the fascist manner of Hitler.
Israel is justified in criticizing Hitler and his aggression - and we
criticize this as well - but now they are doing what Hitler did to
the Jews. They are killing innocent children and whole families. They
dismantled the legitimate government of Palestine, and thwarted
tremendous efforts to achieve peace and establish a Palestinian state.

"Now they are attacking Lebanon, and have destroyed more than half of
it, according to the latest information. They have assassinated
hundreds of innocent people, and to what end? There is no
justification for this. I am telling you with all honesty that the
hand of the Americans is spurring them on. This hand is behind the
Israeli aggression. It is imperialistic aggression. The real threat
to the world is the imperialistic threat posed by the U.S., and
Israel is one of its imperialistic instruments in this part of the


"On this day, as I am celebrating my birthday, I demand, on behalf of
the people of Venezuela, that Israel withdraws from the land of
Palestine and from Lebanon. There must be an immediate cease-fire. We
must give room for diplomacy, and respect law and human rights. We
cannot go back to living in caves. This will be terrible for the
future of humanity."


"Once again, the mask has fallen from the Satanic imperialistic face
of the U.S. They used their veto to prevent the Security Council from
activating the mechanism of the U.N. in order to put an end to this


The U.S. is "Like Count Dracula - Always in Search of Petrol and Blood"

Interviewer: "Mr. President, could this lead us to say, as has been
claimed, that this is an American war by proxy, rather than an
Israeli war against Lebanon and Palestine?"

Hugo Chavez: "Yes, I have no doubt about this."


"In 50 years, the U.S. consumed the energy consumed by humanity in
150 years. Now, they are working to take control of the petroleum of
the peoples, in order to consume it, just like Dracula. They are like
Count Dracula - always in search of petrol and blood. Why? Because
they want to preserve something transient - the American
imperialistic way of life."


"The American Empire is the No. 1 Enemy in the Way of the Kingdom of
Peace and Justice"

"In all honesty, I say that it is the U.S. that should formulate a
plan for post-imperialism. American society cannot and should not
come to an end, but the imperialism of the fascist elite will. We
must defeat imperialism in this century, so that this elite will not
annihilate the world. Either we succeed in 1,000 different ways to
end imperialism, or else imperialism will use 1,000 different ways to
annihilate the world. This would constitute the end of mankind, the
end of our hopes. Jesus Christ called on us to live in the Kingdom of
Peace, but there can be no peace without freedom. I'm a Christian,
and I believe that Jesus came to announce to us the coming of the
Kingdom of God, and the Kingdom of God is peace, equality, and
justice. The American empire is the number one enemy in the way of
the Kingdom of Peace and Justice."


"How can this be achieved? The answer has to do with the strategy
that will allow us to reach our goal - reaching what Jesus called the
Kingdom of Heaven. How? This can be done in a multi-polar world. The
answer is that we must create a multi-polar world. This is the spirit
of the foreign policy of Venezuela, my dear friend and brother,


"Nasser was One of the Greatest People of Arab History"

"Someone talked to me about his pessimism regarding the future of
Arab nationalism. I told him I was optimistic, because the ideas of
Nasser are still alive. Nasser was one of the greatest people of Arab
history, to say the least; I am a Nasserist, ever since I was a young


"My Heart is With Al-Jazeera and its Media People... You Have a Role
in Liberating the World"

"Whenever I meet an Al-Jazeera reporter, I feel like giving him an
interview or a statement. Allow me to say to the Al-Jazeera staff
that I am amazed by them. As someone who fights for a just world, it
is an honor for me to be here, and to sit across from you in these
studios, and among these colleagues and brothers in Al-Jazeera. I say
to the media people I have met here, and with some of whom I shook
hands, that you are an example and a model of honor, bravery, and the
fight for justice. You are committed to the code of journalistic
work, and to the breaking of the monopoly over the media, and the
distortion of the truth, despite all the pressure."


"My heart is with Al-Jazeera and with its media people, its
employees, and its workers. You should continue to serve as an
example, and present the truth to the world, because the truth is
that you have a role in liberating the world."
