Words fail, again

Sometimes the Australian Jewish community excels at providing priceless parody:

Prime Minister John Howard will be honoured with a Jewish National Fund (JNF) forest in his name at a gala dinner in Melbourne next month.

To be named the John Howard Negev Forest, the forest will be located in Israel’s Negev region, the focus of the JNF’s Negev Now campaign.

What next? A nuclear warhead, aimed at Tehran, called “The Delicious Dick Cheney”? Thank you AIPAC.

Meanwhile, back in Cuba, the media has a few thoughts on the recent US release of terrorist Luis Posada Carriles and ties grow between China and Cuba.

Being in Cuba still reminds me of a nation caught between yesterday’s victories and today’s restrictions.
