  • Murder in Paradise | Cubadebate (English)
    CIA His lawyer told a federal court judge that everything his client did in Latin America he did in the name of Washington What then is it that Mr Posada did in Latin America in the name of Washington Besides the mass murder of the people aboard that passenger plane Posada tortured Venezuelans in the 1970s assisted in the murder of Nicaraguans in the 1980s and trained Guatemalan and Salvadoran death squads in the 1980s and 1990s He also planned a series of bombings at prominent Cuban hotels and restaurants in 1997 resulting in the murder of Italian businessman Fabio DiCelmo and the wounding of several others He also conspired to assassinate the president of Cuba Fidel Castro several times including in 2000 at the University of Panamá where he planned to use 100 pounds of C 4 explosives to blow up a university auditorium full of students along with the Cuban president The cruelty of a 50 year war of terror against Cuba is abhorrent The training that the United States has given Cuban American terrorists is immoral Providing them with weapons is a scandal continuing to protect them an outrage THE DOUBLE STANDARD In contrast to the United States Venezuela does not assassinate those it alleges are terrorists It relies on the rule of law to pursue them but for the rule of law to be effective the other parties to those laws including the United States must observe their legal obligations When Posada Carriles illegally arrived in the United States in 1985 Venezuela immediately filed an extradition request based on an extradition treaty that dates back to 1922 and on an international convention designed to combat terrorism the Montreal Convention on Civil Aviation Rather than extraditing Posada Carriles to Venezuela the U S government instead tried him for minor immigration violations in El Paso and a jury acquitted him of those in April of this year He now lives freely in Miami United Nations Resolution 1373 forbids the harboring of terrorists by member nations This resolution was introduced by the United States to combat terrorism after the tragedy of 9 11 Does it not also oblige the United States to extradite the terrorists it harbors THE CUBAN FIVE Thirteen years ago the United States government arrested convicted and subsequently sentenced Five Cubans in Miami to long prison terms but they were not terrorists The Five had gone to Miami to gather evidence against Cuban American terrorists In 1998 Cuba turned the evidence over to the FBI in the hope that the terrorists would be arrested and prosecuted Yet the U S government didn t arrest or charge the terrorists Instead it arrested charged and imprisoned those who had gathered the evidence The Cuban Five have been in jail now for 13 cruel years Gerardo Hernández is serving two life terms plus 15 years The Court of Appeals ratified his sentence Even if he dies in prison twice and resurrects each time he would still not have completed

  • Judge Lenard’s Cruel and Bizarre Decision against Rene | Cubadebate (English)
    concluded that Cuban Americans in Miami have an attitude of a state of war against Cuba Moreover a 29 page study published a few years ago by Americas Watch said that the dominant intransigent forces in Miami s Cuban exile community try to silence opposing viewpoints in Miami with violence For example a radio station was raided and one of its commentators beaten while other advocates of policy changes were subjected to bombings vandalism of personal property and death threats While in the last few years there have been as many as a dozen bombings aimed at those who favor a more moderate approach toward the Castro regime none has resulted in a single arrest or prosecution the report concluded It is irresponsible and dangerous for the United States to force René González to remain in this climate of violence and terrorism for the next three years His life is at risk Judge Lenard explained that she cannot properly evaluate the circumstances of the offense and the history and characteristics of the defendant Really judge The circumstances of the offense are that René González came to the United States not to spy on the U S Government or to commit any crimes His job was to gather evidence against terrorists who were operating with impunity from the United States and whose targets were innocent civilians in Cuba In 1997 for example Cuban American terrorists organized a series of bombings at the most famous hotels and restaurants in Havana including Cuba s emblematic hotel the Nacional and the restaurant that Hemingway made famous the Bodeguita del Medio The purpose of the bombing campaign was to destroy Cuban tourism thereby striking another blow to the Cuban economy that at the time was reeling from the loss of its customary trading partners in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union Especially after 9 11 the United States sustains that it is a matter of national security to punish the terrorists and reward those who combat terrorism If that is the case then René González should be allowed to return home to his family rather than force him to remain in Miami surrounded by criminals who may very well have it in for him Judge Lenard also claims in her decision that if she allows Mr González to return to Cuba on October 7 she won t been able to assess whether the American public will be protected from further crimes of the defendant His only crime was failing to register as a foreign agent How will Mr González endanger the American people if he returns to Cuba How much time does Judge Lenard need to make to properly evaluate something as clear as spring water The judge also alleges that more time is needed to provide the defendant with needed educational or vocational training medical care or other correctional treatment in the most effective manner What René González has no intention of living in the United States His lawyer has already said that his

  • Remarks by President Raúl Castro: On behalf of our nation I offer you the warmest welcome | Cubadebate (English)
    existing between the Holy See and Cuba which have developed continuously for seventy six years based on mutual respect and concurrence on issues of crucial importance for mankind Good relations prevail between our government and the Catholic Roman Church in Cuba The Cuban Constitution provides and ensures full religious freedom to every citizen and on the same basis the government sustains good relations with every religion and religious institution in our country His Holiness It s been almost twenty years since Fidel took many by surprise with the statement that an important biological species is in risk of extinction due to the accelerated and progressive elimination of its natural habitat Man The threats to peace keep mounting and the existence of huge nuclear arsenals poses another grave danger to human beings Water and food second only to hydrocarbons will be the cause of future predatory wars The resources invested in the production of deadly weapons would suffice to eliminate poverty The mind boggling development of science and technology is not being used to tackle the major problems affecting human beings quite often they are used to create conditioned reflexes or to manipulate public opinion Finances have become an oppressive power It is not solidarity that is expanding but rather a systemic crisis brought about by irrational consumerism in the wealthy societies A negligible portion of the population accumulates enormous wealth while the number of those who are destitute and hungry helpless and ill without access to medical care keeps growing In the industrial world the protesters cannot no longer stand injustice while distrust of social and ideological models that obliterate spiritual values and generate selfishness and exclusion particularly among the youth is increasing It is true that the global crisis also has a moral dimension and that there is a gap between the governments and the people they pretend to serve Actually political corruption and the absence of real democracy are both current evils We find that our views coincide with regards to these and other issues In the face of so many challenges Our America comes together in sovereignty and strives for a more fraternal integration that can lead to the realization of our forefathers bicentennial dreams His Holiness will be addressing people with deeply held convictions who will listen to him attentively and with great respect On behalf of our nation I offer you the warmest welcome Thank you very much 3 Comments Make a comment Einar Schlereth OnbehalfoftheNation Mar 28th 2012 9 52 That s sounds strange to me Are there no atheists on the island Are there no enemies of the church especially the catholic church on the island This man who is deeply involved in the pedophile scandal and the following cover ups There are even plenty of catholics who despise him go and ask the Irish people So the give him the warmest welcome on behalf of our nation sounds wrong Reply Troy P Wright AgreatspeechRaul ThisIwillshare Apr 13th 2012 1 54 I ve
