Haaretz: Why does the U.S. shun Cuba, but not Israel?

JG: the answer to the question is very simple: North-Americans and Jews are very similar, money is their main, and sometimes, only concern.

“Between confusion and disaster / Know there is a solution / It’s called love,” sang Arik Einstein.

And we saw it proved once again with the headlines: “The UN voted in favor of lifting the embargo on Cuba; Opposed: United States and Israel.” Twenty-three years in a row the United Nations has voted to lift the American embargo on Cuba, which the U.S. imposed more than 50 years ago. The decision, which does not bind the U.S. (Why? Because!) was passed by a vote of 188 in favor, and only the anti-communist pair of lovebirds, the U.S. and Israel, voted against.
