fidel and arafat
Cuba honored Yasser Arafat today before the U.N. Human Rights Commission and denounced what it called Israel's army violations against the Palestine people, so reports Presna Latina.
Cuban representative Juan Antonio Fernández said Arafat was a tireless, heroic and self-sacrificing combatant and the higher Palestine voice and symbol of his people´s cause.
Of course all the problems in the world are the fault of the U.S.
"The United States has the shameful record of 29 vetoes to resolutions that the Security Council has tried to approve to stop the extermination of an entire nation," the Cuban representative said.
Fernandez went on to fall into projection
Fernández condemned the extrajudicial executions, tortures, arbitrary arrests, and destruction of houses, collective punishment and the indiscriminate use of force, among other practices used by Tel Aviv against the Palestinians.
How is that different from the extrajudicial executions, tortures, arbitrary arrests, seizure of private property, collective punishment and indiscriminate use of force of fidel?
