Castro Blames U.S., Israel for ISIS

Thursday, September 4, 2014
And these are "rational" Cuban leaders that some want the U.S. to negotiate with.

So now that Castro believes the U.S. and Israel have served as an "excuse" for ISIS, will anti-U.S. policy advocates argue that we should just ignore ISIS -- so as to not give them an "excuse"?

Of course not.

Fidel Castro accuses McCain, Israel of creating ISIS

Former Cuban President Fidel Castro is reportedly accusing Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Israel of conspiring to create the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

In a column written for Cuban state media, the former communist leader attacked McCain as Israel’s “most unconditional ally.”

Castro, 88, alleged McCain “together with [Mossad, conspired] in the creation of the Islamic State, which today controls a considerable and vital portion of Iraq and reportedly one-third of Syria as well.”
