Amongst the evidence collected by the police from Egyptian Islamist/assassin El Sayeed Nosair’s New Jersey apartment on November 5, 1990, (but not translated until after the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993) was “a small, wirebound notebook, [in which] Nosair had written, ‘We have to thoroughly demoralize the enemies of God by means of destroying and blowing up the towers that constitute the pillars of their civilization such as the tourist attractions they are so proud of and the high buildings they are so proud of.’ ”
