Alan Gross gets Hanukkah visit in Cuban gulag

The AP via ABCNews:

American Man Jailed in Cuba Gets Hanukkah Visit
Cuba Imprisoned American.JPEG

An American man imprisoned in Cuba for crimes against the state has received another visit from Jewish leaders on the island.

Adela Dworin is president of the Jewish Community of Cuba. She said Thursday that she met with Maryland resident Alan Gross for an hour and a half Monday to mark Hanukkah.

They prayed, lit candles and shared latkes, a potato-pancake dish traditionally eaten during Hanukkah.

A photo showed a slender-looking Gross with Dworin and Community vice president David Prinstein. He held a hand-lettered sign in Spanish that read "I (heart) Judy" — a reference to Gross' wife.

Gross was sentenced to 15 years for his work on a USAID democracy-building program in Cuba.

    So the Dworin crone is at it again. Such a humanitarian! Such a fashion plate! Such a tool. Ugh.

    "You see how generous the revolution is? We allow our good little assimilated Jews to comfort a bad, subversive, imperialist American Jew. Aren't we the salt of the earth? Don't we deserve a Nobel Peace Prize? Ask Adela how happy she is here and how wonderful our revolutionary system is. Go ahead. She'll tell you--if she knows what's good for her--and trust us, she does, or she wouldn't be allowed near Gross."
