Brother Yousry pretended to be an FBI snitch. His attorney recalled, ³The dayafter September 11
, the FBI came to Mr. Yousry and they asked him would you keepus informed as to what is going on between the Sheikh and his attorneys, what is doing,what are they talking about, what kind of topics are under review, and Mr. Yousry,believing, and still believing to this day, that he has done nothing wrong except followthe lead of the attorneys, over the next several months every time there was a phonecall, every time there was a prison visit [to Sheik Rahman], the FBI would comeknocking on his door and say what happened, what took place? And it was a kind of atest I guess because at the same time these things are being tape-recorded and Isuppose they are trying to see what Mr. Yousry is doing or not doing. And you will findthat this is the evidence, that everything he told the FBI was the truth. They didn'tbelieve he was doing anything wrong and they didn't believe the attorneys were doinganything wrong and therefore he was cooperative with the FBI. And it amounts toparticularly compelling evidence of somebody who as I started off telling you is actuallyinnocent of setting out to violate the law. He thought what he was doing was so far removed from violating the law that it didn't concern him to tell the FBI what washappening, tell the FBI what the discussions were about, tell the FBI what was beingdiscussed. He didn't think he was doing anything wrong.´ During his trial Yousry wasasked about these meetings:
Did you meet with Detective Louis Napoli and Agent Whittle and other representatives of the government before ±
Over a particular period of time?
For about six months, yes.
And did you -- how would the meetings take place; face to face, over the telephone?
No, we usually called me and we meet someplace. We talk for a whileand then that's it.
Did you tell the agents -- did you truthfully answer the questions?
To the best of my ability, yes.
And can you estimate the number of either meetings or telephone callsyou had with the agents over this period of months?
I truthfully can't. Probably 20, 25 times, something of that ...
The FBI came to its senses after it began recording the meetings with hisEminence and concluded that Yousry was not being truthful with it in his reports aboutthe Sheik and he was finally arrested after many a blessed mission.
In March of 1999 where Sister Lynne smuggled in a message from Rifa¶i Tahawhere he at that point sought Abdel Rahman's support for his withdrawal of support for the cease fire the Islamic group had imposed on itself in Egypt. Rifa'i Taha had soughtto push Al-Gama¶a al-Islamiyya toward a return to armed operations against touristsvisiting Egypt, but the group, which still was led by Mustafa Hamza, had yet to break theunilaterally declared cease-fire against the Egyptians. Rifa'i Taha desired that SheikRahman support his wish to end the cease-fire and was counting on Sattar to get amessage to him through Yousry and to then relay Sheik Rahman¶s response to Al-Gama¶a al-Islamiyya. Sattar and Yousry also wanted to see much blood shed as didSheik Rahman who was bitter and almost half-crazy from being locked down andisolated. Sattar was also in contact with Mustafa Hamza. This was not the first timeBrothers posed as translators and paralegals to carry out a blessed mission: Threepersons who had been employed by defense teams in
United States v. Abdul Rahman
 as either paralegals, investigators or translators in prior trials were implicated in criminalcharges: one ³paralegal´ had a prior criminal record, but no prior paralegal experience;a second one was arrested during a trial and later convicted for violating the federalfirearms laws by providing weapons to the terrorists on trial, prior to their arrest; a thirdwas implicated by the trial evidence in the World Trade Center bombing plot. Two of thedefense teams in the bin Laden case proposed to retain one of these same³paralegals.´
On March 2, 1999 the Sheikh was asked by Yousry to reconsider hisposition by leaders who opposed the initiative. He replied, "let's wait and see what theywould accomplish before reconsidering our position." On
March 2, 1999
Stewart¶ssignature appeared on this document:Lynne: What do you think of the disagreement concerning the initiative?Rahman: I think it is OK. I also admit that the opinion which was published in
isa good one, but I think that the final opinion should be left to the historical leadershipGive them the priority in order to establish a new Constitution for the group. That iswrong, Lynne. Another thing.
March 9, 1999
, following a prison visit to Sheik Rahman by Stewart andYousry, Sattar sent a message from the Shaykh to Mustafa Hamza, advising him toadhere to the cease-fire and warned: ³No new agreement or charter, and nothing shouldbe done without my consultation, or without my knowledge. No political party should beformed in Egypt.´
. USDC SDNY 00 CR 0919 #7
. Yousry was asked about theses words and he responded, ³These are also part of the rough notes that I never submitted andthere are two factual mistakes there. It's in September of 1999, not in March of 1999, according to my notebooks.3. Lynn Stewart Indictment p12
March 24, 1999
on the occasion of µId al-Adha, the Egyptian GamaµaIslamiyya reiterated its commitment to the unilateral truce declared in July 1997 by itsjailed leaders. The statement emphasized that Gamaµa units both inside and outsideEgypt were responding positively to a new appeal by their jailed spiritual leader, ShaykhRahman, to abide by the truce and halt all military operations for ³the sake of Islam andMuslims.´On
April 18, 1999
it was reported,In Heikstep, Egypt, an Egyptian military court sentenced to death 9 of 107defendants in the biggest trial of Muslim militants since those whichfollowed the 1981 assassination of President Anwar Sadat. Eleven menreceived life terms and the rest lesser sentences, while 20 were acquitted.At least 60, including all 9 condemned to death, were tried in their absence. All the defendants, except one, were accused of belonging tothe Egyptian Islamic Jihad group. In court, they chanted: "There is no Godbut Allah" and "Islamic Revolution." All were dressed in white prisonuniforms except Ahmed el-Naggar, handed over to Egypt by Albania lastyear, who wore a red one as he was already on death row after an earlier trial. Egypt has executed 68 of more than 90 militants sentenced to death.The latest executions were in November 1998 when 3 men were hanged.Relatives, denied access to the courtroom at the Heikstep military basejust outside Cairo, wailed when they learned of the verdicts, which cannotbe appealed. Several women fainted. Only Prime Minister KamalGanzouri, acting as military ruler under the emergency laws, can quash or refer back to court sentences delivered by military or state security courts.One weeping man said a family member had received a 7-year term,saying: "He has been paralyzed since childhood and has already spent 6years in detention.The 9 sentenced to death include Islamic Jihad leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, said to be in Afghanistan, and his brother Mohammed. Amongthe 11 given life sentences was London-based Yasser el-Sirri, alreadycondemned to death in his absence for a 1993 attempt on the life of former Prime Minister Atef Sedki (Sidqi), an event orchestrated by EgyptianIslamic Jihad and followed by the assassination of the main witness in theSedki case, Sayyid Yehia a car shop owner and only eye witness to theevent who informed the police about Al-Sayyid Salah, the leader of this activity. Theoperation resulted in the killing of a child named Shayma
who was injured by flyingsplinters from the car that they blew up in front of Sedki house. The girl went straight toheaven and the family was paid blood money. Zawahiri the Elder explained,[What happened was] our brothers in the Egyptian Al Jihad Group carriedout the attack on the motorcade of Prime Minister Atif Sidqi using a booby-
