The assassination of Rav Meir Kahane- al-Qaeda's first terror attack on US soil- Lessons on 29th anniversary

Rabbi Meir Kahane is known as a stalwart defender of the safety of the Jewish people's safety. But he was also a great religious scholar, writer, and leader many consider the author of "Why Be Jewish" and several other books a tzaddik and prophet.

This National Geographic documentary illustrates the connection between the murderers of Rav Kahane, the first Al Qaeda terror act on American soil, and the 1993 World Trade Center bombing - which it is alleged could have been averted had the FBI & NYPD been able to better investigate the radical materials of El Sayid Nosair, convicted for assassinating Rav Kahane November 5th, 1990.


As Debbie Schlussel wrote:
Nosair’s trial was a travesty of epic proportions. The moronic O.J. Simpson-style jury acquitted Nosair (defended by Marxist Jewish self-hater William Kunstler) of murder charges, even though it was clear that he planned the murder of Rabbi Kahane and meticulously carried it out in front of a room full of witnesses. Thankfully, the courageous judge
overseeing the case, Judge Alvin Schlesinger, said the jury’s acquittal “was against the overwhelming weight of evidence and was devoid of common sense and logic,” and he sentenced Nosair to the maximum number of years possible, under the charges for which he was convicted–seven to 22 years."

Though acquitted of Kahane’s murder, three years later, while in prison, Nosair was also implicated in the first World Trade Center bombings that killed six and injured over a thousand others, through his association with those involved in the attack. 


Nosair’s cousin, Ibrahim A. El-Gabrowny, 45, received 57 years for the conspiracy and other charges, including possession of bogus passports and visas intended to get Nosair out of the country following a jailbreak. Seven other defendants received prison terms of 25 to 35 years for planning what prosecutors called a “war of urban terrorism” aimed at altering US policy in the Middle East.  (Source: Times of Israel, Feb '17).

Eyewitness to Nosair's assassination of Rabbi Kahane, former J.D.L. member, Shannon Taylor, recounts the murder, the trial, and it's ramifications - only days after the Pittsburgh Etz Chaim/ Tree of Life synagogue massacre by Robert Bowers (ironically professed to have been motivated by Jews' support for H.I.A.S. (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society) resettling of Muslim immigrants in Pennsylvania and other cities across the United States).


Rabbi Kahane had intended to bring his message to Los Angeles' Beth Jacob Synagogue after his Marriott appearance.  If the congregational rabbi would not honor some congregants request for him to speak inside the sanctuary, Rabbi Kahane declared that he would speak outside on the street.

Rabbi Moshe Parry appeared in 2013 outside Beth Jacob Synagogue to honor Rabbi Kahane's ideology- published below.



"Just Who Stole Eretz Yisrael?" - "G-d is Creator of the Universe and Owner and Master of the earth and all that it contains: "The Earth is the L-rd's, and the fullness thereof" (Ps. 24:1). He gave Eretz Yisrael to the Jewish People as their land, to enable them to fulfill their mission of building a state and society in accordance with the laws and foundations of the Holy Torah: "He gave them the lands of nations; they inherited people's toils, that they might keep His statutes and observe His laws" (Ps. 105:44-45). As far as Eretz Yisrael, no apologies or justifications are necessary. The Jewish People came to the land where the seven nations dwelled and took it from them by decree of the Owner, G-d. G-d uprooted the nations who dwelled there and brought in His chosen people, Israel, because the land is His and does not belong to those who lived there as occupants.

A Jew must realize that everything -- the world, punishment, even he himself -- is under G-d's exclusive domain".


Nosair's son, Zak has changed his last name to Ebrahim and has written a book denouncing his father's Islamic terrorism.

“The Terrorist’s Son: A Story of Choice,” which he wrote in part, he explains, to show that not all Muslims are irredeemable supporters of extremist ideology.

Tragic and such a great loss. God must be sad. How can rational people support al-Qaeda?
