I saw that comment, too. There's no mention of the numbers that guy is spouting anywhere in the article. In other words, he made them up. The article itself estimates the number to be in the dozens, not thousands.

Big time fail.

How many Muslims or Middle Easterners live in Jersey City anyway? Not many as far as I know. Parts of Brooklyn have sizable Middle Eastern populations such as Bay Ridge and along Atlantic Ave. Were there any celebrations in these areas? Not that I have heard of. Frankly Trump is full of crap on this one and lying through his teeth.

Multiple groups of "modest" (word used by ultra-liberal site) celebrations all over the place in the city plus all the reports from witnesses and 911 callers, plus there are many first hand accounts in comments to stories like this.

Yes, modest, as in the 15 to 20, for instance, spotted on the JFK--which that guy in the comment section inflated to 300.

Sorry, Jersey, but no matter how hard you try to stretch it, several dozen cannot equal "thousands and thousands." I'd say nice try, but it really isn't. It's just really bad math or really big wishful thinking.

Either way, it's not thousands and thousands. It's not even hundreds and hundreds. It's a few dozen.

Big time fail.

There were obviously American Muslims celebrating 9-11. You can find mosques inside America that to this day openly praise 9-11. Just like you can find French Muslims joking about the Paris attack.

The left falsely pretends the amount of radical Muslims is much smaller than it truly is.

Trump said thousands and thousands celebrated in New Jersey out in public...that is on the other end of the error.

We know that there are Islamofascist terrorist sleeper cells in the United States and we know they celebrated after the World Trade Center towers were hit.

What else do you want to know?

I've only heard of the "dancing Israeli's" that were supposedly filming 9/11 from Jersey City.

Both seem like made up stories from people with an agenda, but who knows in this crazy World.

Can you imagine people celebrating just outside of Pearl Harbor in 1941 when the Japanese attacked? I don't give a damn if its 10 slubs celebrating, I want their asses gone in a bad non-pc way. Trump's numbers may be high but it did happen, I remember the day it happened and I clearly remember the reports of people in NJ celebrating on rooftops when the towers fell on 9-11.

This one is related to the Terrorist who killed Soldiers in FT. Hood, but Anderson Cooper also mentions American Muslims celebrating 9/11. Not thousands, but certainly not a very "nice" thing to do since "we" were hurting on that fateful day.

Northern New Jersey Draws Probers' Eyes
"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"
