    Chávez shares the hysterical Jew-hating rhetoric of Iran, and is intimate with the Iranian regime. Cuba however, only shares the "anti-Imperialist" discourse, but explicitly rejects anti-Semitism. Fidel has said it loud and clear, has answered Ahmadinejad saying it's obscene to deny the Holocaust, and to incite hatred against the Jewosh people. Raúl Castro, participated in the Chanuka lighting at Patronato de la Comunidad Hebrea de cuba, Havana's largest of three synagogues in the Vedado district. It's true that one feels rage, impotence and ire that Ahmadinejad is received in Cuba, but Chávez and the Castro brothers are not the same scum.
