Latrine America in lockstep with Castro Kingdom on anti-Israel policy

835740541

Here's a clear sign of how deeply wedded the leaders of Latrine America are to the monarchs in Havana.

Once upon a time, the Castro Kingdom stood alone among its neighbors in its constant condemnation of Israel.

Now, take a look at this.

From NaharNet:

Latin America Comes out in Force against Israel

Latin America's leaders are among the most vehement in condemning Israel's Gaza offensive -- labeling the Jewish state "terrorist", recalling ambassadors, and offering near-unanimous, unwavering support to Palestinians.

"I can't remember another similar situation where (all the countries in the region) have reacted practically as a bloc," said political scientist Reginaldo Nasser, a professor at the Pontifical University in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

One of the most symbolic recent developments came from Bolivian President Evo Morales -- one of the leaders of Latin America's far-left -- who put Israel on its list of "Terrorist States" and eliminated a visa waiver program for Israeli citizens...

...Brazil President Dilma Rousseff this week called the Israeli military operation a "massacre."

Tensions between the two countries had already escalated a week earlier, when Brazil recalled its envoy from Tel Aviv, a move that prompted Israel's foreign ministry spokesman to call the Latin American powerhouse a "diplomatic dwarf".

Rousseff's condemnation did not go as far as some of her peers. Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro denounced "a war of extermination that has lasted nearly a century" against the Palestinian people. A lawmaker from his party used the term "genocide" -- a term rejected by Rousseff.

Peru, Ecuador, Chile, and El Salvador have also recalled their ambassadors for consultations, while Costa Rica and Argentina, which have the largest Jewish populations in the region, called the Israeli ambassador for meetings at their foreign ministries.

    Let's ask Adela Dworin. She's a Cuban Jewish community leader, you know. If she's OK with this, it must be fine. And it was wrong to call Brazil a diplomatic dwarf; Israel should just have called Dilma a diplomatic cow.

    Asombra,

    I'm sure that the Jewish version of Jaime Ortega, that Dworin women is delighted that raul the reformer is going to built a mosque in Old Havana. You know, another one of his magnanimous reforms. Just the other day, Muslims were allowed to close off the street and pray to Allah in the middle of Havana. Oh, so many reforms [!!!], to quote a famous American pundit, it sends a tingle down my leg! Will Adela join the Cuban Muslims in calling for the destruction of Israel, will she pray at the mosque? I wouldn't be surprised. See the video below:

    Ah, Cuba, it's gone from being a country with a powerful and well-organized, integrated Jewish community to a shadow, a skeleton of what it was and with this Dworin woman at its head steering it down a precipice. By the way, she reminds me of that other Adela woman [man?], you know, the one used to be a man, but allegedly became a woman [even though "she" still looks like a man].
