    Hateful bashers won’t thumb me up. It doesn’t matter, I don’t want them. Dull justifiers of force and fire won’t like me either. I don’t belong to neither herd. We will help Israelis and Palestinians. If you are anti-Semites, -many of you are- you haven’t understood anything. President Raúl Castro of Cuba, a dictator of a curious island, lit the Chanukiah lights, as you've seen here. Love all, don't hate, help birthing, help living, help peace. Love Jews and Arabs; don't become despondent by Hamas or Hezballah or Ovadia Yosef, by Ahmadinejad or Nasrallah. Focus on loving these two peoples who are suffering, and grant them your blessings. And don't forget that this recognition is framed not as an imperialist dictate. This is not to eclipse what negotiations can achieve, if so, but to give a cradle to Palestine, living side by side Israel, in peace and security. If you read this with gleeful hatred, you haven't understood the Revolution Latin America is giving as a present to Israelis and Palestinians, and to the whole world. Yours sincerely, Fortuna Benmayor, Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, Latin America. December 2010.
