Maduro offers to bring Gazan children to live in Venezuela

CARACAS, (PIC)-- Venezuela's president Nicolas Maduro has described Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu as "the Herod of modern times," and offered to take care of Palestinian children orphaned by Israel's wanton war on the Gaza Strip.

Maduro said that about 500 boys and girls were killed and more than 3000 suffered disabilities during the Israeli offensive.

"Netanyahu is a modern Herod. He wants to eliminate all children of Palestine," he said in a speech on Friday.

Herod is said to have been a king of ancient West Bank who allegedly ordered the killing of infant boys in Bethlehem to prevent the rise of a messiah to challenge his reign, according to one story in the New Testament. more
