One of the main figures of the Venezuelan opposition, María Corina Machado, sent a special greeting through Twitter on the occasion of the 71st anniversary of Israel's Independence.

In his message, Machado began by expressing his "recognition to the Jewish people for having managed to build a modern, prosperous and free nation."

Then, María Corina spoke about the contribution of the Jewish community of Venezuela that for years "contributed to the development of Venezuela." The opposition leader highlighted that the vast majority of Venezuelan Jews were persecuted and expelled "by a criminal state linked to the worst mafias in the world."

At the same time, Machado stressed that the Venezuelan and Jewish people share "Western values" as well as a common enemy: "international crime that seeks to sow terror, devastation and violence in our lands." In this way, the opposition leader emphasized that "Venezuela's struggle is Israel's struggle."

Machado concluded by saying that the day will come when they will welcome with open arms "all Jewish Venezuelans expelled from our country who will return to be part of the reconstruction of a free, prosperous and safe nation forever."

María Corina Machado is known for being one of the most active and notable leaders of the Venezuelan opposition in recent years and was even the representative who received the most votes in the history of the National Assembly of Venezuela. Her popularity earned her to be one of the opposition's presidential candidates in 2012, although she lost in the primary elections.

Currently, she is one of the main opposition activists in the country with a strong line against the Maduro government, which she describes as a "militarist and mafia dictatorship."
