[Ed. – Maybe he’s going for the food?  Actually (seriously), radical Islamist infiltration of Venezuela has been a reality, by multiple means, for over a decade.  The interesting thing in this case is the connection with Erdogan.  The connections prior to now have been much more with Iran, Hezbollah, and radicalized Lebanese of a particularly Latin American stripe.]

Venezuelan dictator Nicolás Maduro will attend an emergency meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Turkey Wednesday on the Muslim world’s response to President Donald Trump’s declaration that the U.S. would acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Maduro was invited by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who called the meeting, to attend as a special observer. Maduro’s socialist government was among the loudest in Latin America protesting Trump’s declaration, in which he also announced Washington would move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Maduro announced his travel Monday night and departed Venezuela en route to Istanbul on Tuesday. Venezuelan state television described the OIC meeting as having “confronting American threats against the State of Palestine” on its agenda.
