“I don’t think anyone has been slandered more than the Jews,” laments Fidel Castro in his recent “interview” with Jeffrey Goldberg. “I would say much more than the Muslims–they have been slandered much more than the Muslims because they are blamed and slandered for everything. No one blames the Muslims for anything.”
Whoops!…What’s up here?
Visions of tourist dollars dancing in his head–that’s what’s up…let’s face it, how many Muslim tourists can he expect from the U.S.???
Also interesting from the Atlantic’s Mr Goldberg:
“The morning after our arrival in Havana, Julia (Sweig) and I were driven to a nearby convention center, and escorted upstairs, to a large and spare office. A frail and aged Fidel stood to greet us. He was wearing a red shirt, sweatpants, and black New Balance sneakers. The room was crowded with officials and family: His wife, Dalia, and son Antonio, as well as an Interior Ministry general, a translator, a doctor and several bodyguards, all of whom appeared to have been recruited from the Cuban national wrestling team. Two of these bodyguards held Castro at the elbow.
We shook hands, and he greeted Julia warmly; they have known each other for more than twenty years.”
