El Salvador and Chile have joined Brazil, Peru and Ecuador in recalling their ambassadors to Israel in protest over Operation Protective Edge.
“We hope that international pressure will help warring parties to come to agreement, primarily over a ceasefire and then to attain firm peace which is still unfortunately seen in a very far future,” said Chilean Foreign Minister Heraldo Munoz.
Also Tuesday, El Salvador recalled Ambassador Susana Edith Gun to San Salvador “for urgent consultation” following President Sanchez Ceren expressed concern “over serious escalation of violence and Israel’s bombings in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.”
Israel’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement that Jerusalem is “deeply disappointed” at the decision to recall the ambassadors and said the decision would go a long way to provide moral support for terrorism.
“Israel expects countries that oppose terrorism to act responsibly, not to reward terrorists,” the statement said.

  1. As a point of information, these are three socialist countries. Chile has recently elected Bachelet, a Socialist. El Salvador, a guerrilla fighter who trained in Cuba where PLO trained and Dilma Rousseff, Brazil’s president was also a Marxist guerilla fighter. Who needs these dregs?

  2. Israel needs to prepare for the time when eventually every country will be against us and to rebuild a strong infrastructure for its own people rather than for those with whom we’re at war for our very existence.

    Who cares? If they don’t like us they can go to hell. Most of South America’s countries are military dictatorships anyway.

  8. Laurie your right ! Why should Israel give a pigs eye about their enemies who are brainwashed from birth to not care about their own lives because they live for death anyway and to kill Jews is their reward .Why not go ahead and get rid of the muslims living in Gaza ,Samaria and Judea and let them move to their own Islamic country where they will be happy ? And Israel retake control over Gaza because these demon worshipping Muslims are occupying Jews land .

  9. Who really cares? Those are fly-over countries with no political weight in the international scene.

  10. Robert McNamara have you ever been to Israel? Your comments only show your ignorance, so rather than embarrass yourself I think you are better to keep your views to yourself. You obviously have nothing constructive to offer in your comments so just go crawl back under the rock you came from.

  11. Shai Edery says:

    Robert McNamara I pity the lady you are with.
