It sounds as if the US will restore diplomatic relations with Cuba, according to news reports. This is something that should have been done years ago. The terrible Helms-Burton Act denying visas to children with even the slightest connection to Cuba was one of the reasons I left the Foreign Service.
Nevertheless, I am disappointed that it happened the way it has. It gives the impression that Jews are in control of the United States Government. The main emphasis of the announcement was the release of Alan Gross, an American Jew, from a Cuban prison, and his return to the United States. According to the Jerusalem Post, Gross was sent to Cuba to set up a clandestine internet service for Cuban Jews. Although he is an American, Gross was essentially an Israeli Mossad spy sent to Cuba under American USAID cover. Interestingly, Gross was released while the US released three Cuban spies, but to cover the Mossad connection, the US said Gross was released on “humanitarian grounds, “not as part of a swap of spies. Despite the denials, Gross was apparently worth three Cuban spies.
So, we see the Jewish lobby is more powerful than the Cuban lobby, and also more effective than clear-thinking, normal Americans (as opposed to Jewish-Americans, Cuban-Americans, or other hyphenated Americans). It’s sad that Jews and Cubans are both so racist, but in this case the result was the correct one.
