DOES IT MATTER IF IT WAS THOUSANDS, HUNDREDS OR SCORES … THERE WERE SOME MUSLIMS THAT CHEERED WHEN THE TWIN TOWERS FELL.
Politics is about embellishing the truth of your actions and those of your competitors. Donald Trump created a fire storm claiming that “thousands and thousands” of Muslims in Jersey City cheered the fall of the twin towers on 9/11. Some have called him a liar. Well, maybe not a liar, just stretching the truth a bit. It turns out that there were some Muslims in Jersey City, NJ dancing in the streets and celebrating the collapse of the Twin Towers in NYC on September 11, 2001. How do I know? I remember seeing the news coverage back then myself. The new media showed some shots from NJ as well as from the Middle East of Muslims celebrating the death of nearly 3000 Americans. For those who want to say it never happened at all are the liars. I think we can all agree that there are people who hate America.
So it wasn’t 10′s of thousands, but does it matter if it was only 100, 50 or 10. What are these people doing in this country and spreading their vile hate in America? If they hate us so much that they would celebrate, why are they here? The MSM knows damn well what happened that day, they reported on it. Semantics aside, there was cheering.
In the weeks since Donald Trump ignited a firestorm by claiming “thousands and thousands” of Muslims in Jersey City cheered the fall of the twin towers on 9/11, elected officials, religious leaders and a former state attorney general denied the existence of celebrations in the city that day.
Media outlets, after scouring archived news stories and video footage, could not find verified accounts of Jersey City Muslims rejoicing.
But in a new examination by NJ Advance Media, a police officer who worked on 9/11 and residents on the outskirts of Journal Square say they witnessed small pockets of people celebrating before the groups dispersed or were broken up by authorities.
Among the news organization’s findings:
• A retired police captain, Peter Gallagher, said he cleared a rooftop celebration of 20 to 30 people at 6 Tonnele Ave., a four-story apartment building with an unobstructed view of Lower Manhattan, in the hours after the second tower fell.
“Some men were dancing, some held kids on their shoulders,” said Gallagher, then a sergeant. “The women were shouting in Arabic and keening in the high-pitched wail of Arabic fashion. They were told to go back to their apartments since a crowd of non-Muslims was gathering on the sidewalk below and we feared for their safety.”
Sorry, MSM … Rush making a lot of sense, watch below.
So were there 1000′s, probably not. But there are probably thousands of people who witnessed the same incidents.
