Anti-Semitic Cuba gets a pass

Is like the saying in Spanish, “dime con quién andas, y te diré quién eres,” which simply translated means, “you are known by the company you keep.” Mamoud Ahmadinejad (Iran), Hugo Chávez (Venezuela), Hezbollah, and dead terrorists like Yasser Arafat would love for nothing more than the complete obliteration of the state of Israel, and of every Jew from the Middle East. As visible and as boisterous as the Cuban regime has been with these “friends,” why has Cuba been given a pass? This is the question asked by writer Myles Kantor, addressed directly at the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
Perhaps ignorance explains the Wiesenthal Center’s silence, though the Castro regime has flagrantly demonized Israel for decades and supported its enemies. One would think an organization that monitors Latin America might have noticed this. Read the rest [here].
While Israel receives its strongest support from the American right, the majority of Jews in America are of the left leaning persuasion, which may account for the blinders when it comes to governments of similar ilk.

Espero que es Myles no le haga mucho coco a eso. La respuesta que seguro le viene es la misma que la abuelita da siempre, "no estamos contra los judios, solo contra el gobierno israelita".
