NYE Around the World, Cuba and Israel

--New Years in Kenya
--Squatters who were kicked out of Aberdare Forrest two decades ago were given plots of land as a gift from the Kenyan gov't.
--New Years around the world in pictures
--50 years ago today rebels led by Fidel Castro completed revolution
--14 years ago today the Zapitastias begin a short armed rebellion in Chiapas, one of Mexico's poorest regions
--Even writers in Kenya think we should end the embargo of Cuba and that the United States has a double standard when it comes to Israel.  Maybe it is time to rethink these two relationships.
