Democrats are pushing for a return to Obama’s failed policy of appeasing the communist Castro dictatorship. But Cuban opposition leader Ariel Ruiz Urquiola explains you can’t negotiate with murderous criminals.

Ariel Ruiz Urquiola asks U.S. Congress not to negotiate with the dictatorship

Cuban scientist and activist Ariel Ruiz Urquiola has sent a letter to U.S. diplomat Mara Tekach, who was the Chargé d’Affaires at the U.S. Embassy in Cuba for two years, and to members of the U.S. Congress where he denounces the criminal actions of the Cuban dictatorship “that’s been misgoverning my country since 1959,” and asks them not to negotiate with the regime, which in reality should be judged.

“To dialogue or negotiate with the Cuban (mis)government at the fringes of Cuban civil society inside and outside the archipelago and without adherence to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights serves to energize the organized crime of the Castro family,” he said.

He added that for the Cuban dictatorship “and its (mis)government, in my humble opinion and with the sensitivity a victim of the Castro family’s and its henchman’s organized crime can appreciate, there should be a multilateral path towards the International Court of Justice.”

Likewise, according to Ruiz Urquiola, his letter, in addition to citing evidence of a government “that has destroyed the heart of a society” and “the integrity of the family,” has the objective of calling on “the direct victims of the Castro family and its misgovernment to give testimony regarding their cases, however painful they may be” before members of the U.S. congress.

  1. What would he know? The nerve. Just go ask any official (non-Cuban) Cuba “expert” and be done with it.

    Actually, it’s even easier. With anything Cuba-related, just ask “What would the New York Times do?”
