René Gonzáles S. “Dear Friends, Today David is Palestinian and Goliath is a Zionist”

We are all aware of the horrendous devastation in Gaza. As we write this, 797 Palestinians have been killed and 5,118 injured. The dead include 190 children and 75 women. With each day, the numbers grow. What is happening is truly genocide.

On July 8, the Cuban government issued the following statement:
“Cuba strongly condemns the latest Israeli aggression against the population of the Gaza Strip. Israel uses its military and technological superiority to implement a policy of collective punishment with a disproportionate use of force that causes loss of innocent civilian lives and massive property damage.

Eduardo Galeano, Genocide in Gaza

Para justificarse, el terrorismo de Estado fabrica terroristas: siembra odio y cosecha coartadas. Todo indica que esta carnicería de Gaza, que según sus autores quiere acabar con los terroristas, logrará multiplicarlos.
th
Desde 1948, los palestinos viven condenados a humillación perpetua. No pueden ni respirar sin permiso. Han perdido su patria, sus tierras, su agua, su libertad, su todo. Ni siquiera tienen derecho a elegir sus gobernantes. Cuando votan a quien no deben votar, son castigados. Gaza está siendo castigada. Se convirtió en una ratonera sin salida, desde que Hamas ganó limpiamente las elecciones en el año 2006. Algo parecido había ocurrido en 1932, cuando el Partido Comunista triunfó en las elecciones de El Salvador. Bañados en sangre, los salvadoreños expiaron su mala conducta y desde entonces vivieron sometidos a dictaduras militares. La democracia es un lujo que no todos merecen.

Air Algérie Flight AH5017, which reportedly crashed in Mali after changing its flight path to avoid heavy storms, was carrying Mariela Castro — niece of retired Cuban President Fidel Castro and daughter of Cuba’s current president, Raul Castro, news agencies reported Thursday

180px-Mariela_Castro_2010_HamburgUPDATE 2 PM Eastern Time: Mariela Castro has confirmed that she was not on board the downed plane. “I’m alive, happy and healthy,” she told Venezuelan television. “Maybe the media that published that news needed a bit of publicity, but here I am.”

The Air Algérie flight was on its way from Ouagadougou, the capital of the western African country of Burkina Faso, to Algiers, Algeria. According to Jean Bertin Ouedraogo, Burkina Faso’s transportation minister, the plane’s pilots radioed to report heavy rains about 21 minutes after taking off, and asked to alter the plane’s flight path.

About 29 minutes later, the Air Algérie plane disappeared from radar.

An Algerian official confirmed to the Reuters news agency that the plane did indeed crash, but offered no details or speculation as to the cause or location of the disaster, or whether there were any survivors among the 116 on board.

Mariela Castro, the 51-year-old daughter of Cuban President Raul Castro, was among the passengers now missing and feared killed in the crash, according to a Facebook post by the Ouagadougou Airport.

ABC Newsalso reported that Mariela Castro, a prominent activist for gay rights in Cuba and director of the Cuban National Center For Sex Education, was among those on board the ill-fated Air Algérie flight.

Obama does not support David against Goliath, but rather Goliath against David.

GRANMA INTERNATIONAL

thAn unheard of provocation
by Fidel Castro

THIS morning the cables were full of reports about the unheard-of news that a
Malaysia Airlines passenger plane had been hit at an altitude of 10,100 meters as it flew over Ukrainian territory, along a route controlled by the war-hungry government of chocolate king, Petro Poroshenko.

Cuba, which has always stood in solidarity with the Ukrainian people, and in the difficult days of the Chernobyl tragedy provided medical care to the many children affected by the accident’s harmful radiation, and is always willing to continue doing so, cannot refrain from expressing our repudiation of the action of the anti-Russian, anti-Ukrainian and pro-imperialist government.

At the same time, coinciding with the Malaysian aircraft crime, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, head of the nuclear state, ordered his army to invade the Gaza Strip, where, over the last several days, hundreds of Palestinians have died, many of them children. The President of the United States supported the action, describing the repugnant act as legitimate defense.

Obama does not support David against Goliath, but rather Goliath against David. As is known, young men and women from the Israeli people, well prepared for productive work, are being exposed to a death without honor, without glory. I am not aware of the Palestinian’s military strategy, but I know that a combatant prepared to die can defend even the ruins of a building, as long as he has his rifle, as the heroic defenders of Stalingrad demonstrated.

I only wish to express my solidarity with the heroic people who defend the last sliver remaining of what was their homeland for thousands of years.

Senator Bob Menendez another anti-Cuban Sleaze Ball

Bob Menendez tries to wash his dirty linen with Cuba

Google translation.

Revised by Walter Lippmann.

Democratic Bob Menendez earlier today reacted to accusations that blame him for having sex with minors in Dominican Republic, however, the strategy of the senator has been nothing more and nothing less than to blame Cuba, an old resource used by politicians of Cuban origin counter to cover up their faults.

th

Menendez has asked the U.S. Justice Department to investigate this alleged plot, according to The Washington Post.

The allegations against the politician came to light in November 2012 when the Daily Caller, a conservative website and in no way linked to Cuba, cited two Dominican women who claimed that the senator had been paid for sex with him, but suspiciously the women withdrew last year.

But the story is longer, the Sen. stayed on holiday in the Dominican Republic, at the residence of his friend, the millionaire Dominican opthalmonogist Salomon Melgen, who has also contributed to the legislator.

The Justice Department maintains an investigation to determine whether Menendez used his influence to benefit Melgen in his businesses, according to the Post.

Menendez interceded on issues related to the financial interests of Melgen, trying to pressure the Dominican government to fulfill a contract with the security company belonging to Melgen port itself.

The senator also interceded with the U.S. authorities to dispute that Melgen had made improper charges to the federal system known as Medicare retirees for eye treatment for a total of $ 8.9 million.

The Post claims that the FBI’s department of public integrity is investigating the matter seriously and considering possible charges against Menendez.

PARIS (AP) — In her new book, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says she pushed President Barack Obama to lift or ease the decades-long U.S. embargo on Cuba because it was no longer useful to American interests or promoting change on the communist island.th
In excerpts of the book “Hard Choices” obtained by The Associated Press ahead of its release next week, Clinton writes that the embargo has given communist leaders Fidel and Raul Castro an excuse not to enact democratic reforms. And she says opposition from some in Congress to normalizing relations — “to keep Cuba in a deep freeze” — has hurt both the United States and the Cuban people. She says the 2009 arrest by Cuba of USAID contractor Alan Gross and Havana’s refusal to release him on humanitarian grounds is a “tragedy” for improving ties.

The fact that Cuba has already developed four cancer vaccines undoubtedly is big news for humanity if you bear in mind that according to the World Health Organization nearly 8 million people die from that disease every year. However, the mainstream media have completely ignored this reality.

In 2012, Cuba patented the first therapeutic vaccine in the world against advanced lung cancer, called CIMAVAX-EGF. In January 2013, the island announced the second cancer vaccine, known as Racotumomab.cuban meds

Clinical tests, carried out in 86 nations, revealed that though these vaccines do not cure the disease, they do reduce the tumors thus improving the quality and expectancy of life of the patients. Continue reading
