A day after his death, Hugo Chavez is already being touted as a
martyr and a messiah by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who
equated the now deceased Venezuelan leader to Jesus and Shiite Islam’s
12th imam Wednesday, saying, “I have no doubt that he will return, along
with the righteous Jesus and the perfect human.”
Ahmadinejad also reiterated claims made by Venezuelan Vice President
Nicolas Maduro that Chavez died of a “suspect illness” but didn’t go as
far as Maduro had in equating Chavez’s death to that of late Palestinian
Liberation Organization Chairman Yassir Arafat, who some believe died
by poisoning at the hands of Israel.
Ahmadinejad didn't have to go as far as Maduro. When Ahmadinejad refers to a 'suspect illness,' everyone knows what he means.
