Is Venezuela buying for Iran?

Israel has warned Russia that the S-300 anti-missile system that it plans to sell to Venezuela could yet end up in the hands of Iran.
“This is a real possibility, considering the close ties between Venezuela and Iran,” an Israeli official familiar with the deal said.

Other officials are less concerned by the system and claim that if and when the S-300 is delivered to Iran, Israel will be able to develop an electronic warfare system to neutralize it.

In general, Israel is concerned with the strengthening ties between Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Chavez has visited Iran eight times, most recently last month when he signed a number of agreements aimed at increasing strategic ties between the countries.
What could go wrong?
