    Venezuelan candidate subjected to Anti-Semitism

    The Anti-Defamation League has voiced concern about blatant
    anti-Semitism in the Venezuelan presidential campaign directed against
    opposition candidate Henrique Capriles Radonski, who is running
    against incumbent Hugo Chávez. An article attempted to discredit the
    candidate's credentials based on his Jewish ancestry. The article,
    titled The Enemy is Zionism, also promoted the classic anti-Semitic
    stereotype of a global Jewish cabal reminiscent of the Protocols of
    the Elders of Zion.
