New Jersey 9/11 Celebrants Were Israelis

FBI file reveals story that won’t fit Trump’s narrative

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump set off a firestorm when he claimed that “thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down.” Trump was referring to the World Trade Center attacks on September 11, 2001. Debunkers subsequently swept in, such as Glenn Kessler of the Washington Post, quoting Trump “doubling down” and insisting that“There were people over in New Jersey that were watching it, a heavy Arab population, that were cheering as the buildings came down. Not good.”

No, not good, if it were the product of a real memory. But Trump’s recollection does not appear to be a real memory, though it contained a germ of truth.

In a series of updates to his “debunking” story Kessler then referred to reporting of “FBI probes in northern New Jersey after the attacks, saying in the 15th paragraph that ‘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.’” Kessler avers that “The reporters who wrote the story do not recall whether the allegations were ever confirmed.”

No need for their memories either. The story the Washington Post and others left behind did not die. It was confirmed. According to FBI files released in 2013 in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, not only were five individuals arrested for their suspiciously “joyous celebration” of the 9/11 twin towers attack, they indeed did so from a perfect vantage point in New Jersey. In subsequent FBI interviews and polygraphs, the detained individuals, many who overstayed visas after entering the U.S., “showed deception” when asked about whether they were involved in undercover operations or intelligence gathering. They were ultimately released back to their country of origin.

However, none of these FBI files or the uncomfortable questions they raise is of any use to Trump, the mainstream media “debunkers” or the growing post-Paris movement dedicated to casting suspicions on Arabs or Muslims as possible terrorist conspirators. That is because the highly documented five celebrants – later joined by two more from the same company apprehended after giving false information to law enforcement – were not Arab or Muslim.

The celebrants were – as noted here – all Israelis.

  1. How dare you turn Trump exaggerations into truths about shameful Israeli behavior?

    Nobody wants to hear truths that run contrary to the official "narrative"…how dare you?

    I have made the same points on message boards all over the internet. Some know the truth, but most simply want to believe the government lie or believe that Israelis would NEVER be celebrating the attacks. LOL. Great post.

    1. How wrong the U. S. public and American government are because the Israeli government accepted and loved the 9-11 attack with glee. Everybody loses, but Israel wins buckets of support and military aid while it stands on the sidelines, losing nothing and gaining a great deal. It's normal, routine behavior with the Zionists. as they watch and pick up the pieces making treasure along the way. Israel has been taking advantage of the generosity of the Americans for decades, and shows no appreciation. They are a bunch of arrogant bastards. .Even Netanyahu admitted he was glad it happened.

    1. Yeah, Yeah, we know all that, tough neighborhood, but why not give up Palestine? Zionists are the new, the old style Colonists. Israeli should be ashamed. But you're not, you are not.

  2. Yes, I agree the Zionist saw a great new opportunity when 9-11 and Iraq ll came along. It furthered their objectives. They were the only winners over the decade, doing nothing at all but watching as the U. S. and a million others lost lives and wealth while they gained. This is typical of the Zionist cabal. Follow the contracts and the aid money.

    1. Ronald, they did not " see Iraq II come along "; they manufactured it pursuant to a well thought out design. Any green lawyer, forced to apply the most stringent standards of evidence, could draw a direct, thick, blood-red line of causality from Iraq II to Paris, and our burgeoning police states.

  3. What I want to know – How the Hell did they know the target and the time to set up and video the event in real time? Most of us couldn't figure out whether it was an horrible accident or not for quite a while. Those bastards should have been water-boarded until they spilled their guts — or grew gills. Instead, they were given free transportation out of the country. I hope that the Russians settle their hash, when and if they finally catch them pulling another crappy.

    1. Richard, before they were given " free transportation ", they were given a get-out-jail-free-card by the " judicially independent " [ read: complicit ] DOJ, which obviously subscribes to the State Department's Disney-like definition of anti-Semitism.

    1. This is apocryphal information, but allegedly the USN and NSA of that generation did not forgive or forget. Late into his first presidential term, LBJ quietly decided he was not going to run for re-election. He was free to do whatever he wanted, and the USS Liberty incident occurred under his watch.

      The Israeli submarine INS Dakar, a reconditioned vessel purchased from the British Navy, disappeared on January 26, 1968 on its first cruise from British waters to Israel. It was eventually found in 1999, between Cyprus and Crete, damage suggesting a large explosion blew it in half.

  4. I'm surprised that nobody knew to mention this to Donald. Obviously if you were watching CNN or Fox back in those days the ad nauseam repetitions of the same 'bare facts' would have helped you miss some of the interesting nuances of the time – like this story. And the one about a black van belonging to the same Israeli-owned 'moving company' ( the owner made a sudden aliyah – passover style) that was found abandoned on the George Washington Bridge on 9/11 – it tested positive for explosives.

    But, hey, you get the pols you deserve. And Don's got a hebrew in the family.

  5. I feel deeply offended and envious, that we Germans are losing our " worst ever " rank in history to Israel, Now we lack all significance.

  6. The U.S. media is not just cowardly; it is deliberately and knowingly lying to support a foreign nation (Israel) when it should be reporting facts. Actually, there is no U.S. news media; there is only the media owned or controlled by devoted supporters of Israel. Much of the mainstream media is guilty of behavior that is detrimental to the U.S. Such behavior is treasonable, and the owners, publishers, and editors of the media giants guilty of deliberate deception should be brought to account.
    I do not expect this because the Justice Department has been blatantly delinquent in their duty for decades.

  7. Fox News — Carl Cameron — Five-part report on the incident — suppressed for many years now. They were filming also !

  8. I have made the same points on message boards all over the internet. Some know the truth, but most simply want to believe the government lie or believe that Israelis would NEVER be celebrating the attacks. LOL. Great post.

  9. I have been listening radio talk shows, just to get an idea of how these shows would handle questions as to who was celebrating in NJ on 9/11. Out of five callers who brought up the Israeli connection; three were outright and immediately accused of anti-Semitism by the hosts while the other two were accused of having their facts incorrect.
    Honestly makes one think that someone or something DOES control the mass media.
