The descendants of those who crucified Christ … have taken ownership of the riches of the world, a minority has taken ownership of the gold of the world, the silver, the minerals, water, the good lands, petrol, well, the riches, and they have concentrated the riches in a small number of hands.
Chavez’s speech in the original Spanish is included at the above link. I’m assuming the translation is accurate.

UPDATE. More on Hugo from Alex Beech.
UPDATE II. Bob Pence in comments:
I think he’s talking about more than just Jews here. He continues:
“A minority was appropriated the wealth of the world, a minority was appropriated gold of the planet, the silver, minerals, waters, good earth, petroleum, the wealth, then, and have concentrated the wealth in few hands: less than the ten percent of the population of the world she is owner of more than half of the wealth worldwide…” [emphasis mine]
Chavez is focused on natural resource wealth in the passage, not nationality. He goes on to praise Bolivia’s election on an Indian, not focusing on her foolish socialist policies.
Apparently he is indeed Jew-baiting, but only as a larger criticism of white folks / Europeans / the rich or some such, i.e. the top 10%. A nice benefit of being a socialist: No matter how much you debase the national or global economy, there is always a top decile to blame. A nice benefit of being an anti-Semite: You can always say that all of the Jews are among it.
So he’s no Ahmadinejad, just a routine moonbat, but look forward to urinating on his grave nonetheless.
