Welcome home Alan Gross

Welcome home Alan Gross; thank you for what you tried to do so valiantly for Cuban Jews - you are a true hero.

Most nations on the planet have formal relations with Cuba... and Canada, Spain, Italy, France, etc. are heavy investors on Cuba and its thriving tourist business with the West.

What has this decades-long relationship with multiple western democracies done for the average Cuban and his lack of basic rights and freedoms?


Cuba remains, and will remain until the Castro brothers are removed from power and tried for crimes against the Cuban people, the most repressive, racist and brutal regime on the planet.

Restoring relations between the US and Cuba was probably inevitable given the singular global perspective of President Obama, but to think that this will be of some benefit to the Cuban people is not only naive, but intellectually dishonest.

I hope that I am wrong.
