Study Details Castro's Pro-Terrorism Streak

Friday, 21 September 2001 12:00 AM

A special report detailing the Castro regime's ties to international terrorism and its links to Middle Eastern extremists has been released, along with a warning to not turn a "blind eye," on Castro.

The Center for a Study of a National Option, a think tank affiliated with the Cuban Democratic Revolutionary Directorate in Miami, based its findings on international news coverage of Castro and testimony from "experts" on the matter.

It accused him of harboring international terrorists in his pursuit of forming an "anti-Western front."

During a May trip to Iran, Castro was quoted by numerous Middle Eastern news agencies as saying "Iran and Cuba, in cooperation with each other, can bring America to its knees. The U.S. regime is very weak, and we are witnessing this weakness from close up."

During that same trip, the Iranian Press Service quoted Castro as saying, "Iran and Cuba reached the conclusion that together they can tear down the United States."

On Qatar television last year, he said, "We are not ready for reconciliation with the United States, and I will not reconcile with the Imperialist system."

The study also noted Castro's march through Havana earlier this year with the grandson of former Iranian leader Ayatollah Khomeini to mark the anniversary of the Iranian revolution, describing it as further evidence of Castro's efforts to support terrorism against the U.S.

The report concluded that the United States should keep a sharp eye out on Castro's Cuba in this current war against terrorism.

"Turning a blind eye to Castro on the eve of the 'first war of the 21st century' would be tantamount to ignoring the Nazi and Fascist alliance with Japan the day after Pearl Harbor. The enemy is 90 miles south of Key West. And he does not hide his hatred for us," the report said.

Meanwhile, U.S. authorities are reportedly looking into possible links between the hijackers and three Afghans arrested in the Cayman Islands.

Two weeks before the hijackings, an anonymous letter sent to a Cayman Islands radio station warned that the three might be involved with bin Laden in preparing "a major terrorist act against the U.S. via an airline or airlines," according to the Times.

The day after the attacks, U.S. officials arrived in the Caymans to pick up evidence gathered by Cayman and British investigators in their yearlong probe of the men.

The men reportedly claimed to have boarded a ship in Turkey bound for Canada and were put ashore in a small boat in the Caymans.

Police officials in the Cayman Islands said they believe the men entered the Caymans from Cuba using passports issued by Pakistan.
