Wet-foot, Dry-foot
Fifteen Cubans - two of them children - who escaped from Cuba in a small, homemade boat, landed on an abandoned bridge piling in the Florida Keys. They were rescued and held aboard a Coast Guard cutter for a week while US officials debated whether the bridge constituted "dry land". They reached the conclusion that it didn't and these people (who have relatives in Florida) are being sent back. I don't understand why people who escaped a communist dictatorship and who risked their lives to come to the US, are being sent back without even being allowed a hearing.

What happens to Cuban refugees who are caught escaping and sent back to Cuba?

Spain jails a general for his free speech
Would you put this General in jail? What if he was discussing a separatist Raza movement in the American Southwest that sought to take California, Arizona and New Mexico away from the United States? What did this guy do that was so bad?
MADRID, Jan. 7 - A Spanish Army general was put under house arrest on Saturday after he suggested that military intervention might be necessary to quell demands for greater autonomy from the northeastern region of Catalonia, the Defense Ministry said.

Recalling the dispute over Catalan autonomy that was a partial cause of the Spanish Civil War in the 1930's, Lt. Gen. Jos� Mena Aguado, 63, said on Friday night that history appeared to be repeating itself as the nation debated Catalonia's recent requests for more self-government, and that the military was ready to act.

"It is our obligation to warn that there could be serious consequences for the armed forces as an institution and for its members if the Statute of Catalonia is approved in its proposed form," he said during a speech to members of the military in Seville.

"The Constitution establishes a series of impassable limits for any statute of autonomy," he said, referring to the type of law that describes the relationship between Spain's regional governments and Madrid. "But if those limits are exceeded, which thankfully is unthinkable at this time, it would be necessary to apply Article 8 of the Constitution."

Article 8 establishes that the armed forces are responsible for defending Spain's "territorial integrity" and "the constitutional order."

The proposed statute, which was approved overwhelmingly by the Catalan regional Parliament in September, says that Catalonia is a nation unto itself whose powers of self-government are not restricted by the Spanish Constitution.

Critics of the proposal, who include both liberal and conservative politicians, say it could set the stage for an eventual declaration of independence if it were passed in its current form.

Although democracy has taken root in Spain since the death of Gen. Francisco Franco in 1975, the military's history of intervening to settle political disputes continues to cast a shadow over Spanish politics. Today, many Spaniards remain wary of a strong military, and refuse to support significant increases in military spending.

Most political parties immediately condemned General Mena's comments, although a spokesman for the conservative Popular Party, the main opposition group in Parliament, said that statements like his were inevitable because Prime Minister Jos� Luis Rodr�guez Zapatero had failed to vigorously oppose the Catalan proposal.

In comments to the Spanish news agency Europa Press, the spokesman, Gabriel Elorriaga, said that Mr. Zapatero had stood idle while the Catalan proposal created a "serious constitutional crisis."

Mr. Zapatero has said that the proposal is unconstitutional and must be modified before he will support it.

Catalonia, a region of about seven million people in Spain's northeastern corner, has been home to a potent separatist movement for more than 100 years.

The region is one of Spain's economic engines, and supporters of more autonomy say that it provides Spain with much more than it gets in return, particularly in taxes that go to support poorer regions, like Andalucia and Extremadura.

In announcing the detention of General Mena on Saturday, the Defense Ministry said it would propose to Mr. Zapatero that the general, who is scheduled to retire in March, be relieved of his command.

During his speech on Friday, Mr. Mena, who was scheduled to retire in March, suggested that others in the military shared his views.

"I have an obligation to know the feelings, concerns, and preoccupations of my subordinates," he said. "It is their express wish that I transmit them to the top authorities of the Army and to make them public."

Asara B'Tevet
In one of the Sharon Watch threads on Friday, I wrote:
If there's one good thing to come out of this, it's the sense of ?חדות (unity) that we have seen in the past 48 hours.
I've often joked about "2 Jews, 3 opinions", but I was overjoyed at the sense of togetherness I felt was in Israel (a little like it was in America, in the days after 9/11). Just about everyone was praying for Sharon and the political parties even put aside their campaiging for a few days. Then I noticed that the Parsha of the week was Vayigash - the story of the reconcilliation of the brothers. The Haftorah (Ezekiel 37:15-28) speaks of the eventual reunification of the tribes. (Yes, I got chills.)

Asara B'Tevet, the tenth day of Tevet (this year, Tuesday, January 10), is considered a Minor Fast. The fast mainly commemorates the beginning of the siege of Jerusalem at the time of Nebuchadnezar. It is always the "easiest" fast, since it falls when the day is near the shortest of the year (it always falls in December/January).

Though our calendar is now fixed, and 10 Tevet can never fall on a Saturday, R' David Avudraham (13th-14th century Spain) wrote that in the days when the New Moon was declared by Bet Din, if י׳ טבת would fall on Shabbat, the fast would not be pushed off (Nidche) to Sunday. The only other public fast this is true for is Yom Kippur - even Tish'ah B'Av is pushed off till Sunday! My Rabbi explained that while the other fasts are all strictly commemorative, this day, like Yom Kippur, is forward looking.

We are taught that every generation in which the Beit ha-Mikdash is not rebuilt, it is as if they are deserving of it being destroyed in their time. The Talmud teaches that the Beit ha-Mikdash was destroyed for the sin of Sinat Chinam - baseless hatred, and will only be rebuilt when we set aside our differences.

I pray that the unity that I noted last week continues. When the Jewish people sticks together, amazing things can happen!

Day-O! Viva las bananas
Did you know that millions of Americans support the socialist revolution in Venezuela? You did? Well, I didn't know that and now I feel uninformed and unsophisticated. First of all, I didn't even know there was a socialist revolution, which is pretty bad, because I am very supportive of revolutions in general and here went a whole revolution, supported by millions of Americans, yet totally undetected by me. Second, I can't even find Venezuela on a map unless the map says "Venezuela" on it and here are millions of my countrymen who apparently not only can find Venezuela on an unlettered map but they knew about the revolution and supported it! Oh, and did you know that Bush is the greatest tyrant in the world? You did? How come and no one ever tells me anything?!

China's Communist government arming Tehran
China's much-ballyhooed "peaceful development"? My ass.
Chinese government-controlled company sanctioned.
January 8, 2006: In late December, 2005, the United States announced that it was imposing sanctions on nine companies (6 Chinese, 2 Indian, and one Austrian) for transferring equipment or technology in violation of the Iran Nonproliferation Act. In other words, American intelligence had detected these companies supplying Iran with weapons, or material for building weapons. Of particular interest is the inclusion of the Chinese weapons manufacturer NORINCO. This company is actually controlled by the Chinese government, and doesn’t do anything without government permission. The companies sanctioned were supplying material and equipment for producing chemical weapons, infantry weapons and warplane components. The U.S. sanctions make it more difficult for these companies to do business internationally, prohibits them from doing business in the United States, and puts pressure on their home country to crack down on supplying Iran with weapons.
