Cuba and Israel

Rafi Eitan

Fidel Castro appears to be no fan of Israel.

But Israel seems to have wormed its way into Cuba.

1. "Fidel Castro, a Sephardic Jew, is the minder behind Hugo Chavez.

"Rafi Eitan, the Israeli cabinet member and spymaster who ran the Jewish spy Jonathan Pollard, is Castro's business partner and the largest land-owner (of stolen land) in Cuba." - How Zionist Pirates Hijacked America

This seems a little misleading.

The term 'Marrano' was used in Spain and Portugal for the descendants of baptized Jews suspected of secret adherence to Judaism.

Fidel Castro has acknowledged his Marrano ancestry.

2. "What are Castro's views of Israel?

"In Havana, Castro led a rally of approximately 10,000 that protested Israeli 'genocide.' The rally culminated a week of 'Palestinian solidarity' activities organized by the regime.

"At last September's 'World Conference against Racism' in Durban, South Africa, Castro referred to Israel's 'ongoing genocide against the Palestinian people.' This March during a televised speech in Havana he referred to 'revolting and brutal killings such as the ones carried out by the State of Israel…against the people of Palestine.'

"... Castro has a long history of backing aggression against Israel. From sending thousands of troops to aid Syria in the 1973 Yom Kippur War through the present training of Palestinian terrorists, Castro is in the vanguard of anti-Zionist violence. (The most notorious terrorist Cuba has trained is Illich Rámirez Sánchez, a.k.a. Carlos the Jackal.)" - The Baghdad-Havana Axis of Jew Hatred


3. In 1992, Rafi Eitan was approached by Irving Semmel, a successful Brazilian businessman, to bid on a contract for an agricultural deal in Cuba, which involved the cultivation of the largest citrus grove cooperative on the island. (Rafi Eitan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

After winning the bid, Eitan built a partnership with four other international entrepreneurs to run the deal. The company GBM (Grupo BM) was incorporated in Cuba, but Eitan represents the company in Israel under the name 'Reesimex'.

Due to the success of the venture and the connections acquired, GBM also won the contract to build the world trade center in Havana, and a Holocaust Memorial at the center of the Old City of Habana. Recently, GBM was awarded the "Medal for Agricultural Work" by the Cuban government.

In addition to this deal, GBM has started expanding its business deals to the rest of Latin America. It runs various agricultural projects in the Dominican Republic, among others.

4. According to an interview published on 3 July by Haaretz, Rafi "Eitan is a partner in a company that owns vast orchards in Cuba, but when asked about the secret of his ties to Castro, he answers: 'There is no secret. It's simply not true. I don't work with Castro. I'm a farmer in Cuba. All the rest are bluffs by the press... The company deals with agriculture in Cuba, mainly with growing vegetables and producing citrus juice concentrate at the world's largest plant. I met Castro a few times, but we're not friends.'"

material from 2001: "Israel is the only country in the world that has consistently backed the U.S. trade embargo against Cuba whenever the issue comes up in the United Nations.

"Ironically, Israel is also becoming one of the leading foreign investors in Cuba, with private Jewish businessmen involving themselves in everything from Cuban citrus exports to real-estate projects."
