Another "isolated incident"

Reader comment on item: Terror & Denial [by Hadayat at LAX]

Submitted by Sam Stober (United States), Jul 9, 2002 at 16:40

Many may not remember, but when Nossair killed Rabbi Kahane, the authorities called it an isolated incident. They refused to listen to his followers pleas to investigate further. They did however provide some short term protection to major Jewish figures.The material taken from his apartment was not translated until years later, after he surfaced as a plotter of the first World Trade Center attack.

Yet, when the material was translated it showed that Rabbi Kahane was not the only one they were plotting against. Their plans for THE WORLD TRADE CENTER WERE THERE. Had the authorities not downplayed the death of what they called a "Jewish radical", the first World Trade Center attack could have been stopped, and who knows what else we could have learned.
