– DAY OF TERROR

 

Since the WTC attack on 02/26/1993 was carried out by members of Al Farook Mosque,in Brooklyn, the mosque came under intensive investigation and surveillance.

 

An Egyptian immigrant Emad Salem, a former Major in the Egyptian army, who arrived to USA in 1988, was recruited as an FBI informant in the local Russian mafia. Emad Salem was also a member of Al Farook Mosque when he was recruited by the FBI as an informant in the mosque. 

 

Emad Salem already offered earlier to the FBI to spy after the Al Farook Mosque cell but was not taken seriously prior to the WTC attack. 

 

During 3 months Emad Salem filmed and recorded members of Al Farook Mosque, ploting under the supervision of the Mosques’ Imam the blind Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, a mega terror attack in New York aimed to paralyze the city (what was later called the “ Day Of Terror plot or the “HOLLAND Tunnel plot”) 

 

The plan was to explode nearly simultaneously bombs across New York City. The final list was narrowed down to five sites, including the U.N headquarter, the HOLLAND Tunnel, the Lincoln Tunnel, the George Washington Bridge and the Manhattan Federal Building, which housed the FBI New York offices. It would be a highly synchronized attack, a style now considered an Al Qaeda trademark.

 

On 06/24/1993 FBI broke into a warehouse in New Jersey and arrested four suspects while mixing fertilizer and fuel oil for their bombs. All the four were members of the Al Farook Mosque and were identified as Siddig Siddig Ali, Ibrahim El Gabrowny, Tarig Elhassen and Mohammed Saleh.

 

The day later the blind Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, Clement Rodney Hampton and dozens others were arrested too.

 

Siddig Siddig Ali a 32 year old Sudanese immigrant and the ringleader of The “Day Of Terror” plot pleaded guilty on all charges and gave testimony as a state witness against the other defendants including the blind Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman. Siddig Siddig Ali was somehow connected to the spiritual leader of SudanSheikh Hassan Turabi. His location today is unknown.
