I Live in Jersey and Trump is Right: Muslims Did Celebrate On 9/11 In NJ . . . We Saw It!


9-11By Carmine Sabia

It did happen, and I saw it.

Donald Trump is telling the truth about Muslims celebrating in New Jersey on September 11, 2001.

I drove with family members though Patterson, N.J. that morning, after the planes hit. It’s not the kind of thing you forget.

We witnessed people in traditional Muslim garb dancing, jumping, shouting and celebrating like their team had won the Super Bowl, just as Trump said.

“I watched when the World Trade Center came tumbling down,” Trump said Saturday. “And I watched in Jersey City, N.J., where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down. Thousands of people were cheering.”

Trump has refused to back off of those comments. He told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos Sunday, “it did happen. I saw it.”

Media outlets and politicians have been quick to call the Republican presidential front-runner a liar but the fact is it happened just like he said.
I didn’t see thousands of Muslims celebrating but I absolutely saw a pocket, perhaps 100, jumping for joy at the sight of the smoke rising from where the Twin Towers used to be.

The funny part of the media-made controversy is that until Trump recalled his experience on that day, these events were a commonly accepted fact by Jerseyans.

Others in N.J. have spoken about witnessing these events.

Suddenly we are all being called liars in order for Trump-haters to cast aspersions on him.

Well, I defy anyone in the media to call me a liar to my face.

Was the Washington Post lying in an article on September 18, 2001 when it wrote the following?

In Jersey City, within hours of two jetliners’ plowing into the World Trade Center, law enforcement authorities detained and questioned a number of people who were allegedly seen celebrating the attacks and holding tailgate-style parties on rooftops while they watched the devastation on the other side of the river.

I know what I saw, Donald Trump knows what he saw and scores of N.J. residents know what they saw.

What none of us need is some talking head who doesn’t live here or didn’t see what we did to tell us what happened.

I encourage anyone who witnessed the celebrations in N.J., N.Y., or any other city that day to share their stories on Twitter with the hashtag #TrumpIsright.

  1. Yeah and I saw the Loch Ness Monster.

    Infowars is a 9-11 Truther site run by the notorious conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who claims that Bush shot down Flight 93. He also claims that the US government was responsible for the Oklahoma City bombing.

    The real question is why Matzav wants to lose its credibility as a reliable source by linking to Infowars.

  2. Charlatan Hall,

    Charlatan – noun
    1. a person who pretends or claims to have more knowledge or skill than he or she possesses;

    Why cant you admit it happened? It was picked up by numerous “news” sources including your beloved Washington Compost! We saw it with our own eyes. I remember it CLEARLY, watching the news that night and seeing footage from earlier in the day in Paterson.

    Why must you commies resort to revisionist history? Cant handle the truth, I guess.

    Go tell your buba maysahs to the kooks at the daily kookoos.

  3. It certainly did happen but it was not in New Jersey. I know. I was there. I participated. At the time I didn’t know why they were celebrating. All I knew is what I was taught. Free food is asur to ignore. No questions asked. When I found out later, I did experience a slight case of heartburn and was hospitalized for a very short time. I remember it like it was yesterday. Dr. Trump was my physician.

  4. The only way to certainly know that muslims in a certain location did not cheer the 9/11 destruction would be to actually be in that location surrounded by the local muslims on Sep 11 01, and witness the absence of the celebration. No liberal clown claims to be in Paterson’s or Jersey city’s muslim areas on Sep 11 01, hence all the libs can do is to stick their heads in the sand, and viciously attack those that dare to bring facts that shatter the liberal views.
