Israel runs the risk of losing the battle for public opinion in Latin America if it doesn’t devote more resources to its advocacy efforts there, Jewish officials from that part of the world warned at the World Jewish Congress which drew to a close on Tuesday.

“This is a different kind of battle, one of the mind and we are losing it,” Robert Croitorescu, president of the Confederacion Latinoamericna Macabi, the Latin American branch of the global Jewish sporting organization said talking with his colleagues. “I wish that the authorities in Israel would give more resources to fight it.”

Nowhere is Israel’s situation in Latin America as dire as it is in Croitorescu’s own native Venezuela, where the government has severed ties with the country and promoted a line of public rhetoric against it which has been construed as anti-Semitic.
