New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik confirms Trump’s claim that on 9/11/01, Muslims in the NYC/NJ area were cheering* the attacks on the Twin Towers. There might not have been “thousands” as Trump claimed, but there were at least hundreds according to several reports that the media is trying to hide.
*Don’t forget, back in 2001, there were no iPhones, no video capabilities on cell phones, and not many, if any had a built-in still camera feature.
CTH In an exclusive interview with One America News Network’s Cameron Cramer, NYC Police Commissioner on 9/11, Bernard Kerik, confirms Trump’s statements of numerous celebrations after the 9/11 attacks:
This follows the discovery of FOUR additional affirmations as well as the now scrubbed New York Post stories about the dancing Muslims on 9/11:
On September 14th 2001 the New York Post ran an article (Op-Ed) with the headline: “The Issue Is Radical Islam“. Within the article you find the following paragraph(s):
[…] In Sudan, the Islamic militants impose slavery on captured Dinkas – but wherever radical Islam is in power, it subjugates people it regards as infidels. The Coalition for the Defense of Human Rights, an organization supporting those persecuted by militant Islam, argues that “radical Islamism is a world ideology, fielding a world terror-army, which oppresses millions with a racist ideology” that deems non-Muslims less than fully human.
Here in New York, it was easy to get angry listening to Egyptians, Palestinians and the Arabs of nearby Paterson, N.J., celebrate as they received word of the murderous attacks in New York and Washington. But Mayor Giuliani (who has been tireless and magnificent in this crisis) rightly warned New York- ers that it would be wrong to take their anger out on the city’s Arab and Muslim residents. Attacks on Arab-Americans in Paterson or elsewhere are utterly indefensible.
Omar, a Muslim New Yorker and former student of mine at Cooper Union, e-mailed me to say he was “sickened to watch Middle Easterners celebrate our sorrow.” He is an American who has imbibed our values while maintaining his Muslim faith. He wants no truck with those who kill in the name of Islam. (link via Wayback Machine – Web Archive)
As Mike M states, which is the bigger issue? That Trump would exaggerate the number of people celebrating, or that the New York Post would delete evidence of the protest itself?
The New York Post also reported that callers to the Howard Stern Show confirmed that Muslims were celebrating 9/11:
And here’s another story within the New York Post specifically discussing how video of Muslims celebrating the 9-11-01 attack was confiscated and deleted. In a massive note of irony, their concern at the time was “censorship”:
New York Post “Now P.C. Means Censorship”
[…] The PC concern is that the Israelis will somehow “take advantage” of the attacks and therefore that negative stories about Palestinians are to be handled as gingerly as stories about American Arabs and Muslims.
That’s why you probably don’t know about the Palestinian Authority’s death threat against a videographer who took footage of a 4,000-person celebration on Sept. 11 – which led to the seizure of the news footage and its erasure. The fact that bin Laden’s allies on the West Bank targeted a news photographer for death for filming Palestinians dancing at the news of the death of 7,000 Americans didn’t make it anywhere near the front pages.
The news media usually make a stink when the media are threatened. Not this time. (link)
This second New York Post report about journalist censorship and having footage deleted/destroyed is also confirmed by an independent notice from the Committee to Protect Journalists. READ HERE
The DC Media has spent the last two weeks attempting to destroy Donald Trump with lies. Outright lies, and they are doing so in order to protect a 14 year-old cover up.
Breitbart Not only have eyewitnesses and contemporaneous reports proven Donald Trump 100% correct about Muslims celebrating 9/11, a just-uncovered local CBS News (WCBS-TV in New York) report completely vindicates Trump’s claim of “thousands and thousands” of Muslims celebrating the fall of the World Trade Center.
A just uncovered CBS News report about “swarms of suspects” cheering 9/11 from rooftops has validated Trump’s “thousands” claim.
The video below is from a September 16, 2001 news report:
Just a couple of blocks away from that Jersey City apartment the F.B.I. raided yesterday and had evidence removed, there is another apartment building, one that investigators told me, quote, was swarming with suspects — suspects who I’m told were cheering on the roof when they saw the planes slam into the Trade Center. Police were called to the building by neighbors and found eight men celebrating, six of them tenants in the building.
And the older investigators remember that the suspects that eventually got convicted for the first Trade Center case … lived in the building where these same eight men were celebrating the destruction that they saw from the roof. Calling this a hot address, the task force investigators ordered everyone detained.
ADDED: People are arguing falsely that the fact that only 8 suspects were apprehended contradicts the “swarm” claim. Read it again. An “investigator” told CBS about the “swarm.” The fact that a certain number were brought into custody does not change the fact that there was a “swarm.” The obvious impression is that of the “swarm,” only eight were brought into custody. Eight people do not swarm on all those rooftops. They “gather.” Look at the video of the rooftop and picture “swarming.”
Dan Rather, who was then anchoring the CBS Evening News, tells David Letterman of reports of witnesses who saw Muslims on rooftops celebrating.
Between the contemporaneous reports above and these eyewitnesses that have come out in the wake of the DC Media attempting to bury Trump, there is now no question that some number of American Muslims celebrated 9/11.
It happened. And for 14 years the DC Media covered this crucially important story up. And now, thanks to Donald Trump, we know the truth.
Trump appears to have exaggerated the numbers. The DC Media, however, lied for 14 years and continues to lie today.
