Troubling truths about Castro’s Cuba Articles / Opinion Editorials, Publications

Authors: Candice Malcolm

Canadians love Cuba. We travel there in droves. We enjoy their beaches, their cigars and the historic sites and sounds of Havana.

Some Canadians even revel in the lack of Americans at Cuban resorts, and laud our ability to travel to a beautiful part of the world sans our American neighbours.

Many are not aware of Iran’s presence and penetration in Latin America, but Dr. Nisman knew that the Iranian terrorists involved in Argentina’s 9-11 are still active in his country and throughout the region. 

Recordings recently released by Argentinian journalists reveal Dr. Nisman’s wiretaps on an Iranian agent known as Alejandro “Yussuf” Khalil, who appears to be just one of several well-placed sources in Buenos Aires. According to Dr. Nisman, all these agents reported to an infamous Iranian cleric, Mohsen Rabbani, mastermind of the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish center resulting in 85 deaths. … Continue Reading »
