Religious fanatic urges followers to terrorism

The religious fanatic in this case is not an Islamist, but Christian fundementalist Pat Robertson who has called on the USA to assasinate the democratically elected president of Venezuela, Hugo Chávez.
Speaking on his own channel, the Christian Broadcasting Network, Pat Robertson said President Chávez should be targeted because he was a "terrific danger" whose country, a big supplier of oil to the US, was "a launching pad for communist infiltration and Islamic extremism all over the country".
Chávez was democratically elected in free elections. The Venezuelan people have determined to try his polices, polices which will probably fail his country, but his country cannot be called sovereign if it is not allowed to try them.
