In response to my post on the conflict between Cuba and Sweden, Pureplay Press publisher David Landau notes:
The truth is that Cuba used to be a nation of immigrants before Castro took over; but then the regime's policies turned Cuba into a nation of emigrants.
The fate of Cuba's Jewish population illustrates this key point. Before 1959, Cuba had approximately 12,000 Jews who immigrated mostly during the 20th century. Over 90% of that population is gone thanks to the Castro's regime's totalitarian anti-Semitism.
When immigration ceases and emigration sky rockets, it's reasonable to infer that awful shit is happening in a country.
