I've Been Thinking:
The other day Fidel Castro gave an interview to an American journalist.
This is not an everyday occurrence, when it does happen, we need to pay careful attention.
What interested me more than anything else in this interview was that Fidel Castor took on Ahmadinejad. Castro made it very clear that Ahmadinejad was way out of line. Castro called Ahmadinejad an anti-Semite.
Castro knows full well that Ahmadinejad is playing the anti-Semitism card in order to garner support in the Muslim world. And in the eyes of the Cuban dictator, that behavior is unconscionable.
Castro is not a lovey dovey kinda guy and he does not mind peddling propaganda. But Castro will not countenance or sponsor racism or anti Semitism. Even thugs have a line in the sand.
