    Re:ICANN's sex traps (honey traps) are widely know

    "I had my eyes opened very quickly concerning what it's like to live in a totalitarian society where your every move is watched and every word recorded," says Rabbi Kent. "I was staying at Havana's Hotel Nacional, but it was too expensive, so I asked a friend if there was anything cheaper available.

    Before this friend could arrange anything for me, I was approached by a man who said he was the landlord of the apartment complex across the street from the hotel and he had a room available. Amazingly, the price he was asking was exactly the amount I had mentioned to my friend as the price range I was looking for. I had been warned that all hotel rooms and public buildings were wired with microphones and cameras, and this confirmed it."

    Rabbi Kent moved into the apartment, which was to become his jail for the next three weeks. On his fourth day in Cuba, he was arrested on the street by the National Revolutionary police. He was taken back to his room, where his belongings were searched and he was accused of espionage. "I told them I'm not a spy, I'm a rabbi. I'm only praying and studying with other Jews,'" Kent recounted. But that didn't satisfy the Castroite gestapo. "They said I only had a tourist visa and that I must have a missionary visa' in order to minister to the people. But no rabbi has ever been given a missionary visa, as far as we've been able to tell." That effectively ended his mission to Cuba's Jews.

    However, it soon became evident that Cerf's agents had another approach in mind. "I quickly realized that they were going to use the carrot instead of the stick. And the carrot was going to be girls, girls, girls. They were going to try to seduce me with beautiful women." Rabbi Kent, who is single, says Miguel Delgado kept trying to fix him up with a Cuban wife to bring back to the U.S. Any "wife" he would have matched Kent with would actually be a "control agent," of course, meant to assure that the rabbi would be useful to the regime.

    "It was incredible how they staged all these spontaneous' encounters," Rabbi Kent told The New American. "Miguel escorted' me out to get an espresso. After we sat down at the cafe, a beautiful Cuban woman, Ana Ramirez Leal, just happened to come by and Miguel invited her to join us.

    What a surprise: She knew the Torah like a rabbi! It was obvious they had been preparing for me for months ever since I had applied for the visa. "He had known something of Castro's deception practices before experiencing them himself. "I knew, for instance, that Dr. Jose Miller, the titular head of the Cuban Jewish community, was a complete fraud," says Kent. "He's a medical doctor, an aide to Castro, and the Communist Party's main overseer of the Jewish people in Cuba.
