50 years ago (a week from today)…

… as we say in Arabic, “3oqbalna”.  – May we see such actions throughout the Arab world (and beyond and beyond)
It’s 50 years since the triumph of the Cuban Revolution, an event that really did “change everything”:

“The dictatorship has been defeated. The joy is immense. And yet, there still remains much to do. We won’t deceive ourselves by believing that everything will be much easier from now on; perhaps it will be much more difficult.” – Fidel Castro, Jan. 8, 1959, the day he entered Havana.




    The Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba condemned ongoing Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip on Thursday.

    This condemnation came in a message received by the secretary-general of the Palestinian Democratic Union, “FIDA,” Saleh Ra’fat.

    The letter said that the party “condemns the military operation against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip and calls for an immediate end to Israeli attacks.”

    “Cuba renews its support for the Palestinians,” the statement added.

    The letter concludes by saying that “these crimes reflect the violence committed by Israel’s terrorism against Palestinians, how they are against human rights and disrespect international laws and United Nations principles.”

    “It is time to have all other states and governments that condemn these massacres to stop Israel’s aggression,” the statement said.
