The Opening of Jihad on US Soil

Ever since the horrific public assassination of Rabbi Meir Kahane at the Marriott Hotel in New York City in 1990, there has been a small, yet vocal group of individuals trying to get certain US authorities - both state and federal - to pay attention to his murder. Their many entreaties both for personal justice and for a wider investigation fell on deaf ears. Nonetheless, the ramifications from the inaction of these US authorities can no longer be ignored.
This small group's personal pain at the rabbi's cold-blooded assassination fueled their initial anguished pleas. However, there was much more underlying their silenced screams. Just as surely as night follows day, they were convinced about one glaring aspect of Rabbi Kahane's murder: it was the opening salvo by Islamic terrorists in their ongoing war against the US, perpetrated on US soil. Previously, during the 1970s and the 1980s, the Islamists shot several devastating hits aimed at US interests overseas. Not this time.
The logical conclusion that Rabbi Kahane's supporters drew from his murder was crystal clear. Strangely, it coincided with the assessment of the Islamic jihad: if they can eliminate a problematic "radical" rabbi (their first victim of choice) on US soil and get away with it, then the hitherto invincible and impenetrable US would become open for their jihad.
The Islamists counted on the US authorities turning a blind eye to their intentions; and their assumptions proved demonstrably and deadly accurate.
Rabbi Kahane's assassin was an Egyptian named El-Said Nosair. Soon after the murder, the investigating authorities found among Nosair's belongings many boxes of Arabic writings, which for years were inexplicably not translated. Unbelievably, they included detailed plans for the upcoming 1993 World Trade Center bombings. In addition, Nosair was also a protege of Sheikh Abd Al-Rahman, the internationally infamous "blind sheikh" from a Jersey City mosque, convicted of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Furthermore, the gun used to kill Rabbi Kahane was given to him by Wadith El-Hage, a member of Al-Qaeda, who was convicted for the 1998 US embassy bombings. Significantly, in March 1997, an Egyptian Muslim opened fire at more than a dozen people who were congregated on the rooftop of the Empire State Building for a sightseeing visit. Three years later, in the fall of 2000, the USS Cole was attacked, albeit overseas. The nexus to this Islamic hydra was growing exponentially (the above are only some examples of their lethal attacks on US soil and US interests overseas), yet US investigative authorities kept undeniably missing the links. The catastrophic attacks of September 11, 2001, on the World Trade Center and the US Pentagon were a direct culmination of their blindness.
However, from day one after Rabbi Kahane's murder, his supporters besieged US authorities to view it as an Islamic act of jihad. But to no avail. Coincidentally, Rabbi Kahane's personal lawyer, Mr. Shannon Taylor, was also at his side when he was gunned down. In fact, he collapsed at Mr. Taylor's feet. He never imagined that the camera he brought along to take pictures of the gathering at the Marriott Hotel would later be used to take photos of a dying Rabbi Kahane. These pictures were taken to compile evidence for eventual prosecutorial purposes. In fact, these same images were the ones which circulated all over the world right after the murder.
Immediately, Mr. Taylor approached the local New York office of the FBI and the US Attorney General's office with sources of information. Acclaimed terror investigator Steve Emerson produced a documentary, Jihad in America, that exposed that the FBI had buried moles and spies deep within some of the Islamic terror cells. However, no tangible results on Rabbi Kahane's murder were forthcoming from the FBI. Coincidentally, Mr. Taylor had the occasion to speak with the newly retired CIA head, William Sessions. Mr. Taylor was flabbergasted to learn that Mr. Sessions never saw the crime scene pictures taken of Rabbi Kahane's murder. This should have been the first order of business, to hand over the pictures to the head of the CIA. After all, that was a logical conclusion to make when Islamic terrorists were being pursued. What was later revealed, though, managed to fill in the blanks as to why no results were forthcoming in Rabbi Kahane's assassination investigation.
In a nutshell, the FBI was not only taken off Rabbi Kahane's case, but all Islamic "infiltrating" was halted. President Clinton ordered the CIA, and the CIA then demanded that the FBI cease and desist. The Congress also put the squeeze on the FBI. Why? The true motives are anyone's guess. However, from 1990 until the 1993 first World Trade Center bombing, these groups were not monitored.
Fifteen years after Rabbi Kahane's murder, National Geographic, much to their credit, finally connected the most undeniable and intrinsic dot in their very well-documented four-part series entitled Inside 9/11. The focus of their documentary was on a timeline of the Islamic jihad against the US. Lo and behold, they concluded, much like Kahane's supporters, that Rabbi Kahane's assassination was the opening of jihad on US soil. This documentary was deemed so important and so relevant that it was made available free of charge to those areas that do not have access to the National Geographic cable channel.
One needn't be a cynic or a conspiracy theorist to make one salient observation: Kahane's murder (that of an often-maligned rabbi, deemed a "radical" and a "racist"), and the lack of a proper investigation into its cause, was of very little import to most. This was especially the case in the non-Jewish communities, and, to a certain extent, in the Jewish communities both in the US and in Israel.
Imagine that. It took fifteen years, and thousands of deaths, to finally point out what should have been obvious to all. That is, that the opening shot fired by the Islamic jihadis on US soil was Rabbi Kahane's assassination, and that the jihad is ongoing - with no end in sight.
Countless lives could have been spared if the investigation into Rabbi Kahane's murder had been given the priority and attention it deserved. It most assuredly would have led investigators to an overarching Islamic jihad plot against the US. Now that the politically incorrect blinders have been taken off, we can only hope and pray that the US authorities will pursue in earnest the Islamic jihadis, regardless of who is killed, and despite where the investigation leads them.
May Rabbi Kahane's memory be for a blessing.

A few authors wrote books immediately after 9/11 and had figured out that AQ was operating on our soil in the early 90's. This incident is mentioned in several of those books.
Now, if authors could figure out what was going on, why couldn't the FBI or Clinton's justice department? It becomes more clear over time there was DELIBERATE disregard for national security.

"yet US investigative authorities kept undeniably missing the links"
Oh COME ON! Missing the Links? What we know now is that the FBI and the CIA were full of weak, liberal syncho-phants at the management level, who wanted to get together with all foreign nationals , join hands and sing " Cum by yah!" Bill CLinton really up the ante on this by hiring and promoting men and women cast in his own image while encourag9ing the disempowerment of Americas truer protective peace officers. That battle is syill going on ( Rerad Freeds book on Clinton, look at the liberal 5th columns treason in the CIA , Plame and Wilson)
Its time conservative people started to point out the folly of such dim wing nut approaches to dealing with agressors. Who cares what the PC stanz is on group hugs, ecumenicalism and world love? Liberal peckerwoods just have to start dealing with the world as it is and cut out traducing the USA in their hopes for a false Utopia , "peace in our times."

Don't worry, the NYPD's got you covered. Also please note that Kahane's JDL were not nice guys. They have several entries on this list.
NEW YORK CITY TIMELINE OF TERROR
- September 16, 1920 – TNT bomb planted in unattended horse-drawn wagon exploded on Wall Street opposite House of Morgan, killing 35 persons and injuring hundreds more. Bolshevist or anarchist terrorists believed responsible, but crime never solved.
- July 4, 1940 – Detective Joseph Lynch of the Bomb & Forgery Squad received a call in his Bronx home that there was an explosive threat at the British Pavilion in Flushing Meadow Park at the World’s Fair and he should report to the Queen’s scene. He and his partner, Detective Ferdinand A. Socha responded to the scene. The British Pavilion had received a call the day before. A call in a gruff voice said, “Get the people out of the building. We’re going to blow it up.” The Italian Pavilion also received a similar threat. But pavilion officials refused police requests to monitor visitors, saying it would hurt attendance. A British electrician became suspicious when he found a suitcase that had been sitting in the fan room of the pavilion for two days. The case was slowly walked out of the pavilion – packed with hundreds of visitors in an areas of the Fair jammed with thousands of people – one of the busiest days of the international exposition ever. By the time Lynch and Socha arrived, the suitcase had been transported to an area behind the Polish Pavilion that was not as populated as the central international area. They quickly found that the maze of wiring was indeed a bomb and as they attempted to snip a wire with pliers, there was a blind flash that killed both Lynch and Socha instantly. One officer, William Federer of the 109th Precinct in Flushing, Detective Joseph Gallagher of the World’s Fair Precinct, Detective Martin Schuchman of Forest Hills, Patrolman Emil Vyskock of Corona were also severely injured. One lost a leg, another an eye and all suffered serious injuries. Most were treated at Flushing Hospital. The guilty were never found. Most observers suspect Nazi terrorists of sympathizers. The IRA was another suspect. The case is still open.

The organized branches of the international Mohammedan death cult (Syria, Hizballah, Hamas, Islamic jihad) needs to be directly attacked, in addition to confronting the threat in Iraq and Afghanistan, plus all 'non-profit' Islamic fronts need to have their IRS status pulled inside the U.S. as well as in the U.K and throughout the E.U. & elsewhere.

The article makes a mistake when it mentions Sheikh Rahman's affiliation with only the Jersey City Mosque. He was also involved with the Brooklyn Al Farooq Mosque which has been a center of Islamist activity including recent material from Saudi Arabia inciting terror, and most importantly Able Danger and Mohammed Atta.
Previously, Shaffer said that Atta, an Egyptian, had been linked to the El Farouq mosque in Brooklyn, N.Y., a hotbed of anti-American sentiment once frequented by Sheik Omar Ahmed Abdul Rahman, know as the "Blind Sheik." Rahman is also Egyptian. Atta was not believed to be in the U.S., however, when he came to the attention of the team.
In 1995, Rahman was convicted of plotting to bomb various sites in New York City. Four of Rahman's associates were convicted in 2002 of conspiring with him to commit terrorist acts while he was in prison.
So the FBI ignored Rabbi Kahane's death and its implications. Nossair was acquitted. We by the grace of God escaped a death horror in WTC1's chemical bomb attck, ignored more Islamist terror and ended up with WTC2.
We are still ignoring the threat.

Sharon was Kahane killer’s target’-Exposé reveals counter-terrorism blunders and FBI memos.

Posted on August 14, 2010 11:44:07 PM PDT by Nachum
The man who killed Meir Kahane in 1990 claims he did not carry out the shooting alone, as previously thought, but was part of a three-man terrorist cell with links to al-Qaida. Its original target was future prime minister Ariel Sharon, according to a newly-leaked US government document.
During his investigation for an article into alleged counter- terrorism blunders published in Playboy magazine on Friday, freelance journalist Peter Lance uncovered official FBI memos which bring new information to light about the murder of the Israeli politician in New York.
According to the documents, Kahanes killer, El-Sayyid Nosair, told detectives in 2005 that he had planned to assassinate Sharon, who was then Israels minister of housing and construction.

“Shadow of Ali Mohamed Hangs Over Nosair Appeal”
SNIPPET: “The New York Times reports today that New York-area jihadist El Sayyid Nosair is appealing his sentence for terrorism-related conspiracy in the 1995 prosecution that brought down the “blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel Rahman.
The heart of Nosair’s appeal revolves around Al Qaeda’s mysterious spy, Ali Mohamed, who successfully infiltrated the U.S. Army during the 1980s, partially succeeded in infiltrating the FBI and was thwarted in a similar attempt against the CIA.
Nosair’s argument, the kernel of which has been covered on this site and in my new book, Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam, is that prosecutors concealed Mohamed’s location from the defense, which wanted to subpoena him as a witness.
First thing first: Mohamed’s participation in the case would not have made a material difference in Nosair’s verdict. His conviction was based on a raft of evidence pertaining to his assassination of radical rabbi Meir Kahane in November 1990 and his direction of other terrorist attempts from prison afterward.
Mohamed provided Nosair and others with training and support materials.”
