“The remarks attributed to Castro demonstrate his deep understanding of the history of the Jewish people and the State of Israel.”

– Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in Haaretz, September 25

“I must confess that your remarks were, in my opinion, unexpected and rife with unique intellectual depth…Your words presented a surprising bridge between a harsh reality and a new horizon. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You proved that even those who are distant from each other can be close.”

– Israeli President Shimon Peres in a message to Fidel Castro cited in the same article
