Castro: Si Se Puede

Click to Read

Castro: Si Se Puede: This week in unhelpful endorsement news: Retired Cuban dictator Fidel Castro has come out in support of Barack Obama, calling the Illinois senator, "doubtless, from the social and human points of view, the most progressive candidate to the US presidency." Castro, no fool, recognizes that his advocacy may not play well here in the states, noting that, "Were I to defend him, I would do his adversaries an enormous favor. I have therefore no reservations about criticizing him," which he does by chastising Obama's refusal to end sanctions against the island nation. It's a smart play: offer your support but pull back just enough that it can't do any real damage. Hopefully, when it finally comes time to officially endorse Obama, Jimmy Carter will do the same thing.

Very interesting. One other "funny" bit I heard the other day. Hamas is upset with Bin Laden because they think that he portrays Muslims as terrorists, and they do not want to be seen as terrorists. An advisor to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said, " Al Qaida and Bin Laden have cause huge damanage to the image of Muslims and Arabs all over the world, and with his frequent statements about the Palestinians he just damages our image." Palestinians have a "depp interest in convincing teh Western world of the justice of our national cause. If we are seen as on bin Laden's side, we will definitley lose". (Abbas is currently having peace talks with Israel) Perhaps much more "good" could come from talking straight to these "bad" people.
