    I met some Cuban Americans in Chicago. They are middle class, well educated and were wealthy in Cuba. Their wealth was stolen from them in Cuba and they were forced to leave; the situation is the same in Venezuela today, where Chavez has stolen property from Jews and American companies. This is happening in Ecuador too; maybe other S.A. countries. Maybe Castro was able to make the lives of the poor a little better or he acknowledged the Holocaust, but the exiled Cuban Americans may have had a worse experience with him. Ahmedinejad should acknowledge the Holocaust before getting into a war with Israel. However, the Iranians are suffering under his regime and people suffered under Castro and are suffering under Chavez. Cuban Americans have kept Castro and Cuba on a black list. Some americans would like to trade with Cuba, but I think it is restricted now. I thought the situation of Armenia and Turkey was similar because of the Armenian genocide; some Armenians will always keep Turkey on their black list, although others would like to trade with Turkey. Some people will never forgive and forget and never reconcile because of their bad experience.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
