Bravo! Under the pro-jihad Leftist Evo Morales, Bolivia severed ties with Israel in 2009. Since 2009 Morales has been a mortal enemy of Israel. Morales joyfully recognized Palestine as an independent and sovereign state, and consistently launched blistering attacks against Israel at the United Nations. The man was a total nightmare.
So what did the people of Bolivia get for Morales’ embrace of the Palestinian Authority and Hamas? Absolutely nothing. Fortunately Bolivia’s new leaders have chosen to follow much of Latin America, who are now enjoying the benefits of their flourishing ties with Israel. Kudos to Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro who was instrumental in Bolivia’s decision to renew ties with Israel.
The news went from bad to worse for the Palestinian Authority. Shortly after Bolivia announced that they were renewing ties with Israel, the people of neighboring Uruguay elected a pro-Israel government. One of several in Latin America. #BDSFail!
Bolivia renews ties with Israel
Move comes following ouster of anti-Israel Morales.
By Jerusalem Post, November 28, 2019:
After a break of more than a decade, Bolivia will renew ties with Israel, Karen Longaric, the foreign minister of the country’s transitional government, announced on Thursday.
Former leftist Bolivian president Evo Morales, who stepped down earlier this month amid widespread protests in the country, broke off ties with Israel in 2009, making it the first country to do so as a result of Operation Cast Lead.
Longaric said that Morale’s decision was taken without thinking about the economic and commercial consequences of the move, such as benefits Bolivia derives from Israeli tourism.
Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz immediately welcomed the move, saying that the ministry has worked both directly and indirectly through Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro to bring it about. Morales’ departure, and his replacement with a transitional government friendly to Israel, made the move possible, he said.
FM @Israel_katz: I welcome the announcement of #Bolivia's govt regarding its intent to re-establish diplomatic relations with the state of Israel.@IsraelMFA has actively worked for a long period of time to promote the renewal of the relationship. 🇮🇱🇧🇴
