Obama ‘can paint worlds of fantasy’
Cuban ex-president says Israeli commandos had fired ‘frenetically’ into Gaza aid workers.
HAVANA – Cuban ex-president Fidel Castro in an article out Wednesday described Israel’s interception of aid ships bound for the Gaza Strip as “Nazi fascist fury.”
He said the Israeli commandos that boarded the ships fired “frenetically” into the aid workers, killing at least nine.
He also wrote that it was unlikely that US President Barack Obama would be re-elected without first letting the US military or Israel launch a nuclear attack on Iran.
Castro, 83 convalescing away from government since 2006, writes regular columns for Cuban media commenting on world events.
“Is it possible,” Castro wondered, for Obama to be re-elected “without the Pentagon of the state of Israel… use nuclear weapons against Iran?” Castro wrote.
“Obama can deliver hundreds of speeches trying to smooth over contradictions that are irreconcilable with truth, dream with the magic of his well-articulated speeches, while he makes concessions” to unethical people and groups, Castro wrote.
Obama “can paint worlds of fantasy… that unscrupulous advisers, knowing his tendencies, plant in his head,” Castro wrote.
