Cuba Travel Agency Firebombed

The facts behind the firebombing of a travel agency in Coral Gables that plans trips to Cuba, including for the recent papal visit, have yet to be sorted out. Obviously, the focus of speculation will be on extremists in the anti-Castro community. Assuming this was the deed of someone unhappy with the agency’s business, I believe it was the work of a single individual not acting as representative of the anti-Castro community. If that’s the case, let’s hope this individual or individuals is subject to the fullest extent of the law as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately, there will be those in our community who will quickly jump on this as another example of Cuban-American hardliner “intolerance” without bothering to understand the difference between disapproving of those who do business, directly or indirectly, with the Cuban regime and those commit criminal acts. Those folks are hardly worth of our attention in this case.

  1. I’m no cop, but the fact that only the office was utterly destroyed is highly, highly suspicious. I wouldn’t put it past the castro agents in this town to do such a thing…
