Swastika Now Israeli Flag: Castro
“The State of Israel’s hatred towards the Palestinians is such that it would not hesitate to send 1.5 million men, women and children to the crematoriums in which millions of Jews of all ages were killed,” Castro wrote in an op-ed piece published in a Cuban newspaper.
“The swastika would seem to be the flag of Israel today,” Castro wrote.
The former dictator emphasized that his words were not “born of hatred,” noting that Cuba helped many Jews escaping persecution during World War Two. However, the Batista government was in power at that time, with Castro coming to power through a bloody coup in 1959. The Castro regime also confiscated many properties from Cuban Jews without proper compensation.
Castro also claimed that there is a double standard when it comes to Iran’s pursuit of nuclear power, writing that Israel never was sanctioned for its own efforts to get such energy.
He also said a confrontation with Israel is inevitable, and that even the UN and US “cannot alter the chain of events.”
