Recently, in his January 10 post written with Danny Glover, the two refer to American Alan Gross — imprisoned by Castro for trying to bring computers to Cuba’s small Jewish community — as a man “tried to set up non-traceable satellite systems inside Cuba as part of an effort to subvert its government.”

The imprisoned Cuban spies, tried and convicted of espionage in an American court of law, however, are viewed simply as Cubans who came to try to stop bombing attempts against the Cuban government in Havana by exile groups — which justified their actions.

In a 2012 entry, Landau condemns Israel for using “its superior military force and technology to kill civilians in Gaza,”and he supports Turkey’s prime minister in calling Israel “a terrorist state.”

Finally, if you want to see how the crazed Leftist Landau saw the world, you have only to read this from a blog at the time of the overthrow of Gaddafi’s government in Libya:

The Saudi King, the rulers of Bahrain, Yemen, the UAE, and Syria more than threatened their opposition: their repressive forces opened fire. Israel routinely kills alleged Palestinian “rebels,” has 10,000 Palestinians locked up and routinely destroys Palestinian homes and entire villages. It sent troops to intercept and kill members of an aid flotilla in international waters under the guise of protecting its security. Yet, Obama raised the horror of Gaddafi possibly attacking his own people. How humanitarian of him, the relatives of the millions of Korean and Vietnamese civilians killed in those wars most Americans cannot explain — never could.

From everything Saul Landau has done, in words or film, his record is clear: he was a defender of totalitarianism, an enemy of American democracy, and a supporter of Marxist-Leninist regimes and Communist revolution.

What an era we live in. Glowing and uncritical obituaries are written of a man who was a moral monster.

I suggest you read Charles Lane's article in today's Washington Posthttp://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/charles-lane-cubas-hard-truths-exposed/2013/09/12/aa32fb02-1963-11e3-a628-7e6dde8f889d_story.html
Cuba oppresses its people, who are sick and tired of living under a tyranny. You only show your own ignorance.

A few years ago, after Fidel told Jeffrey Goldberg that he admired Israel, I had a chat with Saul Landau about Castro and Israel in the comment section of his blog.

I pointed out that Castro sent troops to fight for Syria in the 1973 war. Saul said it was only to get back the Golan Heights.

I said that this was playing with fire because Syria would use any advantage it had to attempt to destroy Israel.

He said that Syria didn't want to destroy Israel.

Borrowing an idea from Theodore Draper, I said that Castro was a lot like Mussolini. Saul said he was more a combination of Machiavelli and Don Quixote.

I must say that he was willing to engage in a polite, extended conversation with a stranger who disagreed with him.

In our country today, we have a severe lack of journalist in the media. The media is full of left wing propagandist that distort the truth while extolling the liars. They do not believe in the First Amendment rights for the American people because they forfeited their First Amendment rights when they became the lapdogs of the government instead of the watchdogs.
