An unheard of provocation
morning the cables were full of reports about the
unheard of news that a Malaysia Airlines passenger
plane had been hit at an altitude of 10,100 meters
as it flew over Ukrainian territory, along a route
controlled by the war-hungry government of chocolate
king, Petro Poroshenko.
Cuba, which has always stood in solidarity with the
Ukrainian people, and in the difficult days of the
Chernobyl tragedy provided medical care to the many
children affected by the accident’s harmful
radiation, and is always willing to continue doing
so, cannot refrain from expressing our repudiation
of the action of the anti-Russian, anti-Ukrainian
and pro-imperialist government.
the same time, coinciding with the Malaysian
aircraft crime, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu, head of the nuclear state, ordered his
army to invade the Gaza Strip, where, over the last
several days, hundreds of Palestinians have died,
many of them children. The President of the United
States supported the action, describing the
repugnant act as legitimate defense.
Obama does not support David against Goliath, but
rather Goliath against David. As is known, young men
and women from the Israeli people, well prepared for
productive work, are being exposed to a death
without honor, without glory. I am not aware of the
Palestinian’s military strategy, but I know that a
combatant prepared to die can defend even the ruins
of a building, as long as he has his rifle, as the
heroic defenders of Stalingrad demonstrated.
only wish to express my solidarity with the heroic
people who defend the last sliver remaining of what
was their homeland for thousands of years.
