Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez had some harsh words for Israel and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman after a diplomat suggested last month that Hizbullah had established cells in the South American country. Chavez heatedly denies the terror group is operating in Venezuela, something his government has already rejected. In a speech Thursday, Chavez noted that Israeli police had recommended Lieberman be indicted for a string of alleged corruption offenses. Chavez called Lieberman a "mafia boss."
