Egyptian Islamist El Sayyid Nosair was sentenced for the murder of Rabbi Meier Kahane on December 21, 1991. “Nosair’s cousin Ibrahim El-Gabrowny gets $20,000 from bin Laden for Nosair’s defense. The FBI later admits that this is the first time bin Laden’s name comes up in association with the New York cell members around the [future World Trade Center bombing conspirator] blind Sheikh [Omar Abdel Rahman].”
