Of course they have, it’s expected from the Castro’s well oiled propaganda machine that the world’s useful idiots lap up. This is the unelected brutal Cuban tyrants pretending they are a lawful government. The Castro’s seized power in Cuba through terror, and their hands are just as bloody as those who murdered the four American victims in Libya, and the terrorists they have supported for decades. The Castro regime has ties to Al Qaeda, and Hezbollah enjoys the Castro brothers’ hospitality.
It is a fact, that the Castro regime has ties to just about every known international terrorist organization for the past fify years. Here’s a list, compiled from news articles, and The Institute for Cuban & Cuban-American Studies.
Al-Qaeda – The Cuban regime could have links with Al-Qaeda through the Polisario, a terrorist group fighting for the independence from Morocco of the Western Sahara. Cuba has been sponsoring and supporting the Polisario since its birth in 1973. In recent years, the Moroccan government has accused the Polisario of “coordination and cooperation with al-Qaeda.” According to the UM, “the ‘Cuban brigade’ of advisors and intelligence operatives stationed within the Polisario zone may be directly or indirectly supporting al-Qaeda operations and training camps. At the very least, it would be unwise to assume that Cuba’s sophisticated intelligence apparatus is not providing valuable information and guidance to Polisario with a tacit consent to pass it on to an enemy (al-Qaeda) of a mutual enemy (the U.S.).” In 2011, the Spanish Civil Guard arrested a suspected Al-Qaeda operative originally from Cuba. http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/2457/al-qaeda-mallorca-sahara

and military structure of the country.
ELF – Eritrean Liberation Front – The most influential Eritrean organization
fighting for secession from Ethiopia in the 1960s, actively supported by the
Cuban and Syrian regime since 1965. Various internal divisions developed
later on until the late 1970s, when a new front was built based on very
different domestic and external alliances and, eventually led the Eritreans
to victory. Cuba’s support to Mengistu Haile Mariam’s regime in 1978 meant
the cessation of previous Cuban backing to the Eritrean cause.

Colombian Marxist insurgent group was founded in 1965. Its main terrorist
activities includes kidnapings and extortion targeting foreign employees of
ETA – Basque Separatist Movement – This organization was founded by

their members have found safe haven in Cuba.

FARC is the oldest and best-equipped Marxist insurgency in Colombia. It is a
well-organized terrorist group that controls several rural and urban areas.
It has received financial and military aid from Cuba and many of its members
were trained in Havana.
FATAH – Palestine National Liberation Movement – Founded in 1959 by younger
generations of Palestinians that had experienced the defeats of 1948 and
