Former Cuban President Fidel Castro slammed Israel on Friday and compared its policies to those of Nazi Germany. He said Israel seems to have taken the swastika as its banner, and that it would "not hesitate" to send the 1.5 million Palestinians living in Gaza to "crematoriums".
The former communist leader published an article in local press in which he said, "The State of Israel's hatred towards the Palestinians is such that it would not hesitate to send 1.5 million men, women and children to the crematoriums in which millions of Jews of all ages were killed."...

"The US keeps patting India on the back for this stance," it said.
The party accused the ruling Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government of succumbing to alleged US pressure over its ties with Iran.
"As a result of US pressure, India backed out of finalising the Iran gas pipeline project," the journal said.
"Even now the UPA government should realise that India's true interest lies in strengthening relations with Iran and extending our economic and trade ties especially in the energy sector.
"India should find ways to pursue this course without the sanctions becoming a hindrance," the CPI-M said....
