web magazine Analisis 24 writes about the systematic collection of information on Venezuela's Jewish life and the activities of Israelies. Links lead to SEBIN (the Secret Police of Venezuela) documents marked Secret or Confidential. Venezuela is aligned with Iran, so it is not surprising that Israelis and Jews may be suspected of harboring ill will, so the SEBIN collects passive items that in some future scenario may become of secret police interest.
The pic refers to the Stasi, the East German Secret Service. When its archives were opened, it was revealed that its feared torture chambers never existed and mostly collected information about anything remotely connected to what a loyal German policeman could imagine as a threat to the State. The SEBIN, for example, appears to have made nationwide enquiries about Israeli trade union people. The "territorial detective chiefs" report their investigations and conclusions that did not find any activity linked with the Histadrut. I know that the Histadrut has an international relations department and there is interchange of "sindicalistas". There is nothing secret about that and they are very careful to be non-political. There must be extensive files on them in the SEBIN, or may be not, because they didnt seem very efficient. Then, there is an item on the Israeli Embassador's ceremony of the anniversary of the Kristallnacht. Probably the police made a list and filed a report on the event. Tomorrow, in the policial mind, this thing could end in arrest and torture or inclusion in some imaginary anti-Venezuelan conspiracy. That is how secret police's mind operates all over the world.
On the other hand, should a pro-Israeli government succeed Hugo Chavez, the "marked" persons will become something of "certified supporters" of the new regime. The pity is that like in the Nazi and the Soviet regimes, the overwhelming majority of the Jews in these files has no idea that they are of interest to the secret police, and have no political or conspirational inclinations, they only want to live their private lives in peace. But being a Jew is enough to be suspect in Venezuela and may be in the rest of the world too.
