Obama’s Plan to Ease Cuba Travel Restrictions – By Eduardo Calcines

The decision to allow additional travel to the island prison, thereby further enriching Castro’s oppressive regime with greater resources, is like treating cancer with a Band-Aid. Although noble in spirit, this approach only serves to prolong the misery of the Cuban people.
I say shame on those who place economic gains above human dignity. Consider how the Jewish people would react if such favor was shown to Hitler under the pretense of improving human relations. Hitler was evil and his crimes against humanity were heinous. Castro’s regime and its own crimes against humanity are equally evil. Since 1959, hundreds of thousands of Cubans have died at the government’s hands and over 300 political prisoners of conscience remain brutalized in Cuba’s gulags.
Until we come to terms with the fact that the Castro’s will do ANYTHING to remain in power, many in the free world will continue to show shameful favor towards Cuba and its failed approach to leadership. The Castro brothers are firmly committed to remaining in power and will camouflage their self-serving interests in order to appease the intellectual world at any cost. The Cuban people continually suffer under an abusive and iniquitous regime. If the free world truly wants to improve the lives of the suffering Cuban people, they should look to once and for all free Cuba from the torturing grasp of the Castro brothers.
Let us remember the words of a wise man who said, “He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King.
