but the leaders of North America and the puppets of the Israeli owned-USA around the world are blind to some of the worst crimes committed by Israel on the Palestinians.
Israel is so smart it had to drop bombs to mete out collective punishment on Gaza because the Hamas creatures were coming out of their caves and tunnels to fire ineffectual rockets that they manufacture themselves and then disappearing back into the holes. However, the smart Israelis couldn't follow the effective method that Egypt implemented ... that which successfully either blocked the tunnels or flooded them. Why Israel? Did you have too many missiles and bombs sent your way by Uncle Sam? Did you find the Gaza population was growing too quickly and had to be culled?
Fidel Castro Calls Israel 'Fascist' Over Gaza Operation Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro compared Israel's military operation in Gaza on Tuesday to a "disgusting form of fascism" that its ally, the United States, is unable to control.
"I think that a new and disgusting form of fascism is emerging with considerable force at this moment in human history," Castro wrote in a column in the newspaper Granma titled "Palestinian Holocaust in Gaza."
Castro's article appeared as a 72-hour truce took hold in the Gaza Strip, with Israel withdrawing troops after a month of fighting with Hamas and other Gazan terrorist groups.
"Why does the government of this country (Israel) think that the world will be impervious to this macabre genocide that is being committed today against the Palestinian people?" he asked.
"Maybe it hopes that the complicity of the North American (US) empire will be ignored in this shameless massacre?" the 87-year-old former president said.
"There are facts that reflect the near total inability of the United States to face the current world problems," said Castro, who handed over power to his brother Raul in 2006 for health reasons.
Communist Cuba broke diplomatic relations with Israel in 1973 after the Yom Kippur War.
