In case you were wondering what’s really behind Fidel Castro’s recent denunciation of antisemitism and sympathetic words about the Jews during his interview with journalist Jeffrey Goldberg, Jeff Gates explains it all to you.
Jeff Gates is a self-described “[a]uthor, educator, attorney, merchant banker and adviser to policy-makers worldwide.” He is also a conspiracy-obsessed Israel hater and antisemite.
Here’s his explanation at the website of Dissident Voice “a radical newsletter in the struggle for peace and social justice”:
Goldberg reports he was “summoned” to Havana to discuss Castro’s fears of a global nuclear war. After conceding in the interview that the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis “wasn’t worth it,” Castro turned to a theme of topical importance to Tel Aviv, insisting that the Iranian government must understand that Jews “were expelled from their land, persecuted and mistreated all over the world.”
Knowing Cuba’s pre-revolution alliance with Meyer Lansky and other kingpins in Jewish organized crime, one must wonder if this “journalist” was dispatched to commence negotiations for gambling concessions as a means to fill the Castro government’s depleted coffers.
The recent relaxation of restrictions on travel to Cuba may signal a pending return to Cuba’s “glory days” as a nearby haven for organized crime.
Castro’s well-timed comments about persecuted Jews may have been a signal that Cuba is again open for business — any business.
Say it ain’t so, Calvin (Zin) Tucker!
