Castro Condemns Jewish American to 15 Years in Prison


Pages: 1 2

The U.S. embassy in Cuba (officially euphemized as a “U.S. Diplomatic Mission” or “Interest Section”) also responded to Mr. Gross’s sentence: “He is guilty of nothing more than caring for the Jewish community and the people of Cuba,” said the embassy’s Public Affairs officer, Gloria Berbena. She continued: “the Cuba government seeks to criminalize what most of the world deems normal [my emphasis] — in this case, access to information and technology.”

So, Cuba is Communist after all! Did Ms. Barbena think she was being posted to Denmark?  Maybe if our “diplomatic mission’s” officers spent less time partying with Fidel Castro’s son and the son of the vice chief of Cuba’s secret police, they’d learn how someone like Alan Gross might be subject to arrest. For proof of the above-mentioned fraternization, see these pictures recently smuggled from Cuba.

Based on the “reporting” by networks and press agencies bestowed to Havana bureaus, an Obama-appointed diplomat can be forgiven for forgetting this, but Castro’s is a Stalinist regime. Based on modern college textbooks, this diplomat can be forgiven for never knowing this, but such regimes are rigidly totalitarian. Based on modern public education, this diplomat can be forgiven for not knowing what totalitarian means, but it means total state control of every facet of their subjects’ life.

Former political prisoner Armando Valladares, who somehow escaped the firing squad but spent 22 torture-filled years in Cuba’s Gulag, described his trial very succinctly: “Not one witness to accuse me, not one to identify me, not one single piece of evidence against me.” Senor Valladares was arrested in 1961 for the crime of refusing to display a pro-Castro sign on his desk. Shortly after his arrival on U.S. shores, Valladares was appointed by Ronald Reagan as U.S. ambassador to the Human Rights Commission of the United Nations, a setting where both Fidel Castro and Che Guevara traditionally basked in wild ovations. Modern history records few U.S. diplomatic tweaks as slick, or U.S. ambassadors as effective.

“When it is a question of annihilating the enemy,” pronounced Stalin’s chief prosecutor Andrei Vishinsky, “we can do it just as well without a trial.”

“Judicial evidence is an archaic bourgeois detail,” explained Castro’s first hangman, Che Guevara, “we execute from Revolutionary conviction.”

Our “diplomats” in Cuba might take note.

    For one thing;there is no oil in Cuba.

    If Mr. Gross was anyone but a Jew, the whole world would be screaming bloody murder against Castro and his ilk.

    Poor Castro and his doomed efforts to isolate an entire country. For a time this dog had his day but people will communicate no matter what the powers that be want.
    Otherwise, how could they choose? His efforts are in vain. Talk will prevail.

    Some say that communism and socialism are a wonderful thing. What a crock. This poor guy will die in prison.

    Where is her majesty Hillary Clinton, the wicked witch of Chappaqua on all of this? Oh, she's out to lunch as she only gets involved with matters that could help her election campaign.

    She is a disgrace to America.

    On September 7, 2010, an interview with Fidel (not to be confused with Raul) Castro by Jeffrey Goldberg appeared in the Atlantic on line. Fidel, who had been anti-Israel when he held power, said that Israel had a right to exist and spoke negatively about Ahmadinejad. The interview did not receive sufficient publicity. http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/

    Cuba, still a bastion of evil, bankrupt, inhospitable and the home
    of lies. How many innocent people have been murdered there and
    yet leftists in America speak of this hell hole as such a wonder. The
    only wonder is how Castro only 90 miles from our Florida coast has
    evaded just retribution for his life of crime. I did not matter if it was a
    Republican or Democratic adiministration, all were weak in this matter
    and unable to extinguish this malignant farce……………………….William
