Seems to me there were some celebrations. At any rate, it isn't uncommon for these celebrations to take place, even homeland security discusses this as activity one should report.
there are reports of very small group(s), 5-12, celebrating in new jersey/new york but nothing to support trump's claim of "thousands and thousands".

if you don't think that there is a radically significant difference then you give me $4,000 [ thousands (2) + thousands (2) ] and i'll give you $8 ( the number from the report of the "rooftop" party ).

put your money where your mouth is.

trump's still hung up on that claim as well. from an interview yesterday with alex jones:

Jones declared that Trump has been repeatedly "vindicated" in his widely disputed claim that thousands Muslims in New Jersey celebrated as the World Trade Center buildings fell.

"I knew it happened and I held my line. People wanted me to apologize, and we can't do that. People like you and me can't do that so easily," Trump told Jones

Don't think "The Donald" thought of that little bit of logic. Still lol

I remember the roof top few people from the time. Was glued to the tv for days due due family in Manhattan and son going up for work while folks were still trying to get home.

Heard something recently that that rooftop episode was a Israeli movie crew who were filming a celebration scene that had nothing to do with the trade center.

First he said I was in NJ and saw thousands and thousands. The he changed it to I was in NJ and saw the thousands and thousands on tv. Which was it?

Trump's claim was Thousands of Thousands of Muslims celebrating and dancing in the streets of Jersey City and Paterson. Do you have any evidence to back up that claim??

two separate incidents.

here's the skinny on the isrealis. they were movers, not a movie crew:

I find it more interesting that he'd use the phrase "people like you and me" with Alex Jones. I am quite happy to put them in the same category when it comes to factuality, mind.
