Bolivia calls Israel ‘terrorist state’

(JNS.org) Bolivian President Evo Morales called Israel a “terrorist state” on July 30 over the country’s conflict with Hamas in Gaza. Additionally, Israelis will not be able to enter Bolivia without a visa, the South American nation announced. Since 1972, Israelis had been able to travel freely to Bolivia. Now, visa applicants will be considered citizens of a “group 3” country, meaning their applications will be reviewed by the Bolivian National Migration Administration. Morales severed diplomatic relations with Israel in 2009. Other South American countries including Brazil, El Salvador, Chile, Ecuador, and Peru have recalled their ambassadors from Israel during the Jewish state’s current conflict with Hamas.
