go to the League of Women Voters town hall forum you will be
able to see some of the views to political issues, as expressed
by several candidates of this congressional district 22.
exiled Cubans do not want you to have an opinion on the embargo.
They feel they know better about Cuba. They want Castro
out, they say they love the Cubans. But 12 million islanders are
suffering great penuries these days, pretty much as 33 million
Spaniards did when the boycott of the UN to the Franco regime.
Unfortunately, I was a witness to that misery!
Some American Jews do not want you to have
an opinion on the Middle East conflict either because they feel
they know better about the Arabs. They want the
"Character of Israel" to be Jewish, and those
Palestinians suffering a great plight should not be there. Well
they are from there! The prehistoric Old Testament might say
otherwise, but modern societies would agree that Palestinians
are the legitimate owners of those lands. They were forced to
sell out, and those who did not -and complained about it- were
eventually and forcefully made refugees.
I was born in Spain, and not in Palestine. Otherwise I will be
as mad -as the Arabs are- about being second class citizens -or
worse- in that "sacred" land that espouses a
theocratic regime (pretty much as their neighbors). The land
where a terrorist who killed many British soldiers was called a
"freedom fighter" and became Israel's Prime Minister (Begin).
The land where another guy who committed horrendous crimes
against humanity in the Shatila camps also became Prime Minister
I guess it is all in the eye of the beholder. Stan Smilan
(WRI -22) -who is Jewish- says there is a propaganda effort to associate
the World Trade Center events to the Jewish conflict. I do not
know about Peter Deutsch, but Robert Wexler and Carol
Roberts -both Jewish as well- have the same opinion as Stan.
Most people -though- would see it the other way around. The
controlled press is trying to convince us that there is not
relation at all between those two events. When it is obvious
that there is great correlation. You can manipulate a few
individuals. But, you can not manipulate all of us. Definitely
not those who have a good education on the subject.
An eye for an eye, a cheek for a cheek!...
how quick the lessons in Germany were forgotten!
Are you old enough to remember the Nazi’s stratagems? Hitler
would send his troops to –indiscriminately- shoot Jews every
time than a German soldier was killed by the Jewish ghetto
underground. Many Jews anticipated –or were told- what was
coming and left the country (Albert Einstein for instance). Many
of those who did not, died in gas chambers. That was the
Reich’s leaders way of “purifying” the Arian race.
Remember when Hitler told the Gestapo to kill 10 detainees from
the French Resistence for every German soldier abated by
those freedom fighters.
In Israel when Jewish civilians die by acts of Arab fanatic
terrorism, unable to pinpoint the culprits, the government
liquidates as many Palestinians as they possibly can. They also
destroy homes of family and close relatives, to terrorize them
into leaving the country.
If things continue like this, what will be next? What Sharon
will do to make the State of Israel purely Jewish? Is the
“Jewish character” of Israel feasible? Would this
“apartheid” be tolerated by the free democracies of the 21st
century? I hope not!
Seeing this injustice being perpetuated in the Middle East, my
heart has been in sorrow since I was old enough to relate to
those underdogs of those sacred lands, the Palestinians.
Beware, next time around could be a
"portable nuclear bomb" wiping out Broward and Palm
Beach. Let's be fair. Let's wake up. Let's be democratic.
Because -despite all the cheap talk- we are not!
