REUTERS: Exclusive: Gross'case and USA's behavior

<p style="text-align: justify;">The Jewish community in Cuba has a website: complete with email contacts so I am assuming that they have adequate Internet access. By Dana Lubow, My questions:&nbsp; 1. How is it possible that Gross went to Cuba five times "to help Havana's Jewish community" and no one from the main Jewish center in Havana or the nationwide Jewish association had ever heard of him?

United States Cuba Policy & Business

<p style="text-align: justify;">United States Cuba Relations: Its About the Politics Not The Policy! More polls and articles continue to come out making excellent arguments why our policies with Cuba should change beginning with lifting the travel ban. Yet nothing has happened yet. To all those who want to see the travel ban lifted and the embargo ended, what is it going to take for us to learn? We have won the policy argument. It is the politics that we continue to lose and seem unwilling to address. A recent encounter with President Obama revealed as much. Read More

Miami group proposes micro loans and investment program

<p style="text-align: justify;">The Cuba Study Group, whose board includes some of the wealthiest Cuban American businesspeople, is a weathervane of exile politics. Founded in 2000 by Miami insurance tycoon Carlos Saladrigas, in the aftermath of the Elián González clashes to bring more pragmatism to Cuban American activism, the Cuba Study Group has been inching towards advocacy of normalization with Cuba. Last year, Saladrigas stated it was time to seek interaction with Cuba, including the government, and this year the group came out in support of lifting the U.S. travel ban. In an interview with Cuba Standard, Executive Director Tomás Bilbao, a former assistant of Senator Mel Martinez, explained the group’s microloan initiative, and its proposal for U.S. economic engagement in Cuba.

There's Nothing Wrong with Cuban Baseball

<p style="text-align: justify;">Unlike its North American and Asian professional counterparts, the Cuban League version of the sport is played far more for pride and passion than for the tarnished purposes of supporting a highly profitable commercial enterprise. Cuban fans not only witness major league style talent in their own backyards but also enjoy a truly unique experience of rooting for hometown teams that actually consist of homegrown athletes' ballplayers born in the local village and not merely rented for a season or two before they peddle their talents on the open market to some other bitter league rival.

These students are eager to share what their experience means to them. Read More

THE AWL: Who Is Francisco Chavez Abarca?

<p style="text-align: justify;">Miami Terror Machine: Who Is Francisco Chávez Abarca?<br> <br> Wednesday, October 20th, 2010. According to a convoluted Miami Herald article that macerates its own opening, the recently arrested Francisco Chávez Abarca, who is accused of terrorist attacks in Cuba in the 90s, is actually a double-agent mystery man in a thriller of international suspense and intrigue. He admits to planting bombs in hotels and colluding with others on the bombing of Cubana Flight 455, but maybe he's just a patsy in a game of cloak and dagger and disinformation to tarnish the good name of admitted terrorist Posada Carriles?

LA ALBORADA: Continental dreams since the 19th Century

<p style="text-align: justify;">October 21. Question: Who said the following?: The day is not far distant when three Stars and Stripes at three equidistant points will mark our territory: one at the North Pole, another at the Panama Canal, and the third at the South Pole. The whole hemisphere will be ours in fact as, by virtue of our superiority of race, it already is ours morally. Read More

FOREIGN POLICY/Anya Landau French: Stiffing Havana

<p style="text-align: justify;">Rather than greet the changes, Obama has replied with mild skepticism. "I think that any release of political prisoners, any economic liberalization that takes place in Cuba is positive, positive for Cuban people, but we've not yet seen the full results of these promises," Obama told Hispanic media at the White House Tuesday. COMMENT: No matter what Cuba does, Washington will never think it's enough. That's the lesson of the past fifty years. Worse, this "liberal" presents her prescriptions for US policy as weapons which Washington is choosing NOT to use to intervene in Cuba's domestic political and economic situation. This is nothing but vulgar crap! Walter Lippmann Read More
