Daughter of Che Guevara Meets Hizbullah Leaders in Lebanon
Dr. Aleida Guevara, daughter of Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara, recently met with Hizbullah leaders in Lebanon and expressed support for the resistance. During the visit, which was reported by Al-Manar TV on October 12, 2010, Guevara laid a wreath on the tomb of Hizbullah leader Abbas Al-Musawi and said: “…as long as the memory [of the martyrs] remains within us, we will have more strength.” Later, while visiting Baalbek, she said: “If we do not conduct resistance, we will disappear from the face of the earth.”
Aleida, the eldest daughter of Che Guevara, is, like her father, a Marxist. She has worked as a physician in Angola, Ecuador, and Nicaragua, and now works at a children’s hospital in Havana, Cuba.
