Gloria Estefan Speaks Up For The Ladies in White

Pop singer Gloria Estefan led a demonstration in Miami's Little Havana section to protest the Cuban government's recent actions against The Ladies in White.

For those unfamiliar with The Ladies in White they are the wives and mothers of Cuban dissidents jailed by Fidel Castro in March 2003.

Last week, Cuban authorities violently broke up a demonstration by The Ladies in White and have detained approximately thirty of them.

President Obama, to his credit, has taken Cuba to task for its behavior.

However, I wish he would condemn the Castro regime with the same vigor he so unwisely expends against Israel.

Then again if not for Gloria Estefan, President Obama might not have been moved to say anything at all.
