Bolivia has declared Israel to be a “terrorist state” and renounced a visa exemption agreement with the country in protest over the ongoing Israeli military offense in Gaza which already killed more than 1,300 dead and left over 7,000 wounded.

Canceling the 1972 agreement which allowed Israelis to travel freely to Bolivia “means, in other words, we are declaring (Israel) a terrorist state,” the country’s President Evo Morales announced.  

Morales explained that Operation Protective edge clearly shows that “Israel is not a guarantor of the principles of respect for life and the elementary precepts of rights that govern the peaceful and harmonious coexistence of our international community.”

The announcement came after a cabinet meeting of the government of Evo Morales which decided that; “The Bolivian state and people have made a firm decision to terminate the agreement on visas to Israel, from August 17, 1972, signed under a regime of dictatorship in Bolivia and that allowed Israeli citizens to enter Bolivia freely without even entry visa.”

Earlier in July, Morales filed a request with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to prosecute Israel for “crimes against humanity.”

Other Latin American countries including Chile and El Salvador recalled their ambassadors in Israel on Tuesday for consultations due to the increased violence in the Gaza Strip against civilians. The move follows similar actions by Ecuador, Brazil and Peru who have also recalled their ambassadors.

Bolivia broke off diplomatic relations with Israel in 2009 over a previous military operation in Gaza.

Just on Wednesday morning shelling of a UN School in Gaza, left at least 20 dead. The incident has brought worldwide condemnation.

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has condemned a deadly attack by Israel against a UN school in the besieged Gaza Strip.

“It is outrageous. It is unjustifiable. And it demands accountability and justice,” said the UN chief in Costa Rica on Wednesday.

The IDF military campaign which began July 8, so far has left more than 1,300 dead and over 7,000 wounded.

  1. My Fellow Patriots:

    Where have we been hearing, for a while now, that phrase: “Isreal Is A Terrorist State….”??

    Oh yeahhhh,… right here on FRTT,… we talk about it almost everyday, and started using that EXACT phrase when no one else was.

    Co-incidence,… AGAIN,… I’m sure.

    JD – US Marines – One again,…. a very exactly worded phrase that no one else was using, except here on From The Trenches, seemingly appears to pop up in other medias several weeks later,.. but nobody listens to our show!,.. of course not!,… just sheer co-incidence,.. as usual.


  2. Like I said before in an earlier article, expect to see South America to enter into the World War. They are the only continent that has not had any involvement in this Zionist World War. Now we have Argentina defaulting and Bolivia calling Israel a terrorist state. They are trying to quickly get South America involved in the World War.

    Like I said before, the Zionists can’t have a World War or a One World Order unless everyone is involved. What’s going to be the red line for South America? Panama Canal?

    So we got Brazil, Venezuela, Bolivia and Argentina pissed off at the Zionist and therefore pissed off at the US. Which is next? Peru? Chile? Colombia?

    Our military is going to be building up in Central and South America very soon. At this rate, maybe even by the end of the year.

    The chess pieces are being positioned and set for an all out battle and World War. You can smell it. The Zionists want their North American Union and South American Union.

  3. Too bad we have such a spineless bought and paid for government that doesn’t even have enough cojones to match a tiny nation like Bolivia.

  4. Right on Frank. Morales has more balls than all the worthless bustards in all capitals. Especially Washington. Now the bitch ass mossad is going to do what they do best. Cause chaos and run like the little pussies they are.
