That Donald Trump said he saw clips of New Jersey Muslims celebrating 9/11. His critics pounced. But whatever he may have seen or not seen in New Jersey, CNN reported here that Muslims in New York City celebrated 9/11 — in 2009.
The clip, found on YouTube, is dated from 2009 and was apparently broadcast in the aftermath of the Ft. Hood shooting that involved U.S. Army Major Nidal Hassan, an American Muslim whose actions were celebrated by a group called “Revolution Muslim.”
The CNN segment was anchored by Anderson Cooper, with the report filed by CNN investigative reporter Drew Griffin. …
CNN “Uncovering America: Homegrown Hate” by Drew Griffin
The mainstream yet again has been sleeping on the job. Trump, Carson who saw the film of Muslims celebrating in the streets after 911 are repeating what many of us knew for 14 years, i.e., that Muslims (not all) living on U. S. soil celebrated the September 11, 2001 the Islamic terrorist attacks.
Five years ago, I wrote a post which I have re-posted every year on 911 since entitled, “THE MORNING OF SEPTEMBER 11, 2001 THROUGH MY EYES.”
In the post, I discuss how unable to get a bus or cab, I walked down Nostrand Avenue from the border line of Crown Heights and BedStuy in Brooklyn to my home.
…As I continued my journey home, deep in prayer for those who I am sure perished moments ago, my country, my family and our safety, I noticed that not everyone was surprised.
There are plenty of establishments on Nostrand Avenue that are owned by Muslims. I suspect that there may even be a mosque or two.
As I passed these establishments, Muslim men stood outside very quiet. Some appeared nervous. It was clear that many were concerned as others followed the events inside on television or over the radio. There was no joking or tomfoolery but as I walked by, I looked into the faces of these men who did not look back and realized that the last thing on their faces was shock.
It was at that moment, that I thought to myself, “They know, they’re in on it….”
They knew. What leads me to suspect that conclusion?
The attacks occurred early in the morning and it was shortly before 10 a.m. that I found myself on Nostrand Avenue. Normally, at that time of the morning, there are less than a handful of Muslims hanging about and they are usually inside their establishments with the doors closed until later in the day.
On this morning, there were dozens “gathered” outside of any one of these businesses. Very unusual for that time of the day.
Up until the morning of 911, visible and on display near the counters of Muslim establishments were family photos from their homeland of men and boys as young as three holding rifles and guns.
Also on display until the morning of 911, were the Taliban and Al Qaeda tassels that hung beside a mini Koran on the side of the rear view mirrors of NYC yellow taxicabs.
Yep, Trump is right.
