In Tehran

Dime con quien andas y te dire quien eres ...

That’s an old Cuban saying my mother uses often enough which translates as, "Tell me whom your friends are and I will tell you what you are … " Or something like that.

It’s eminently appropriate in the case of relations between the Castro regime and the Iranians.

The official Iranian newsagency, FARS, reports on a meeting held on Tuesday between the Cuban Ambassador to Tehran, identified as Fernando Garcia, and a group of Iranian youth who support hardline, anti-Jewish, pro-nuclear president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The topic at hand? Imperialism, of course.

According to the report, the meeting dealt with “the expansion of joint anti-colonialist moves by Iran and Cuba as two poles of the international resistance against the United States”.

One of the untold stories of the Cuban Revolution is the disappearance of a once vibrant Jewish population in Cuba. There are only of handful of Jews left. In Miami, some of the most successful business people are what we call Jewbans (Jewish Cubans). It's probably a topic worth writing about.
