There's a big box on the front page of today's Granma announcing that 
Fidel will be on tonight's Mesa Redonda ("round table") show.

This is the announcement:

"Esta tarde, Mesa Redonda Especial con Fidel

"Hoy, a las 6:30 p.m., Cubavisión, Cubavisión Internacional, Radio 
Rebelde y Radio Habana Cuba transmitirán una Mesa Redonda Especial con 
el Comandante en Jefe Fidel Castro Ruz, para valorar los peligrosos 
acontecimientos que tienen lugar en el Oriente Medio."

It says he will speak "to evaluate the dangerous events that are taking 
place in the Middle East".

This will be Fidel's first televised public appearance since he stepped 
down from office for health reasons nearly four years ago.

In his "Reflections" occassional essays, he published one on Sunday 
saying the United States and Israel are preparing to attack Iran, and 
announcing his intention to alert world public opinion. I don't believe 
this article is in English yet, but if I find it, I will forward it to 
the list.
