Ariel Sharon, Israel, Cuba & the Democrats

When I heard the news that Democrat Obama was praising the Butcher of Sabra & Shatila, Ariel Sharon, I was not surprised. After all the Democrats and the Republicans are both 100% pro-Israel parties at every level of office. They are both also 100% anti-Cuba parties, with every single president, Democrat and Republican, supporting the embargo of Cuba since 1959, fining European banks hundreds of millions of dollars for doing business with Cuba.

The Sabra and Shatila massacre of Palestinians of Sept 16-18, 1982 where 3500 to 8000 people, mostly women and children, were slaughtered with the cooperation of the Zionist military, under the direction of then Defense Minister Ariel Sharon, was widely protested around the world, including in San Francisco, with mass demonstrations at the federal building at 450 Golden Gate.

The Zionist, racist, anti-women, military state of Israel exists only because the US taxpayers give $4 billion a year to promote this US military base to steal Palestinian land, torture and murder Palestinians and protect US oil profits in the Middle East. When you vote either Democrat or Republican at any level of office, you vote for the torture and murder of Palestinians and theft of Palestinian land.

You also vote for the destruction of Cuba, the first free territory of the Americas as Radio Havana describes it, where socialized medicine paid for by the Cuban government has made possible a high life expectancy and low infant mortality that makes the United States look like the backward, dying hellhole that it is. This horrifying nightmare called Obamacare is an outrageous tax on the workingclass and does nothing to improve our healthcare at all. Whether you make too much to qualify for Obamacare so you pay $838 per month to Kaiser for individual coverage for the 60-64 age group, plus $200 a day for a hospital bed and $200 a day for a hospital doctor, and more fees, or you make so little that you qualify for Obamacare, so you, a healthy young person, pay $150 per month with a $5,000 deductible which you will never overcome if you have no medical problems but need the $150 per month to pay for food and housing, you are a victim of a massive fraud. This is what a Democratic controlled House and Senate and a Democratic president promoted as healthcare, with no votes from the Republicans.

The only two parties that support the Palestinian liberation struggle and oppose the embargo against Cuba are Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party. They need you now to stay on the ballot after 2014. It is the REGISTRATION, not just your vote, that will guarantee that they stay on the ballot. They also need your signatures as registered voters in any party for their candidates to appear on the ballot.
