The Center for a Free Cuba strongly condemns the terrorist attacks carried out against Israel by Hamas and calls on all democratic nations to unite in opposing this latest outrage by the terrorist international. 

Not only Hamas, but Iran’s Islamic Republic, and Cuba’s Communist dictatorship are allies in terrorism against Israel. They have a long history of conducting terrorist acts against the Jewish state. 

The Castro regime has been an open enemy of Israel since Havana severed diplomatic relations with Israel in 1973.

October 6th of this year marked the 50th anniversary of the start of the Yom Kippur War, a war of aggression by Syria and Egypt, with expeditionary forces from eight Muslim states. Three thousand Cuban troops supported Syria during the 1973 Yom Kippur War inflicting heavy casualties on Israeli forces. Cuban tank crews fought with Syrian troops. 180 Cubans were killed and 250 were injured. 

This hostility towards Israel did not end when Cubans left Syria in 1975, but the Havana regime continued to aid and train terrorists in the Middle East, and allowed Hezbollah to set up a base in Cuba. 

Today, Cuba directly and through Venezuela continues to provide intelligence to  Hamas as it has for decades. 

In February of 2023 a Hamas delegation visited the Cuban Ambassador in Lebanon.  On June 15, 2023 Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi met with Cuban counterpart Miguel Diaz-Canel in Havana. Raisi had visited Cuban client states Venezuela and Nicaragua prior to arriving in Cuba.

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards fund Hamas to attack Israel, and at the same time is sending drones to Putin to kill Ukrainians.

The Cuban communist dictatorship provides intelligence to Hamas to attack Israel, and at the same time is sending soldiers to Putin to kill Ukrainians.

Terrorists are united, but democracies are not. The European Union refuses to place the Islamic Revolutionary Guards or the Communist Party of Cuba on the list of terrorist organizations. Moreover, the EU is one of the main aid providers and trade partners of the Cuban communist dictatorship. This should be a wake up call for democratic nations to unite and take stronger actions against this terrorist axis.
