Many Muslims celebrated on 9/11. Many continue to celebrate. Some even want a huge mosque at Ground Zero. Never forget. Never submit.
Mirror these vids as they may be wiped from history in the future.
Muslims cheered in “Northern Virginiastan” too:
The area also includes two luxury apartment high-rises that erupted into cheers when the World Trade Center fell on 9/11. Law enforcement has dubbed them the “Taliban Towers.” Investigators routinely find posters and computer screen savers celebrating Osama bin Laden as a hero.
Down the street is a Saudi charitable front for al-Qaida once run by bin Laden’s nephew. The U.S. branch of the dangerous Muslim Brotherhood is in the same office park. Farther down in Alexandria is the Saudi madrassa that’s graduated several terrorists, including the al-Qaida operative who plotted to assassinate President Bush.
Agents on the ground working the inordinate number of terror cases in the area say it’s no less than the base of operations for the bad guys in America
They cheered in Jersey City too – home of the 1993 World Trade Center bombers. From a September 18, 2001 Washington Post article:
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.
The FBI in Boston, via WKRG, reported:
…the office received tons of phone calls from people who feared more attacks and others reporting suspicious activity.
Many of those calls came from concerned and angry Americans reporting Muslim’s celebrating over the destruction of the twin towers and damage to the Pentagon. The calls were logged, reports were made and there were “stacks and stacks” of them…somebody in the office began labeling them “Happy Muslim Calls.”
Dan Rather told David Letterman about Muslims across the Hudson cheering (longer version here):
CBS News report:
More evidence from 2001:
Now deleted NY Post column from 9/15/2001, yet archived:
Here in New York, it was easy to get angry listening to Egyptians, Palestinians and the Arabs of nearby Paterson, N.J., celebrate as they received word of the murderous attacks in New York and Washington. But Mayor Giuliani (who has been tireless and magnificent in this crisis) rightly warned New York- ers that it would be wrong to take their anger out on the city’s Arab and Muslim residents. Attacks on Arab-Americans in Paterson or elsewhere are utterly indefensible.

Akbar S. Ahmed, currently the Ibn Khaldun Chair of Islamic Studies at American University in Washington, D.C., and formerly the first Distinguished Chair of Middle East and Islamic Studies at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD?
On p. 149 of his 2003 book, Islam Under SIege: Living Dangerously in a Post-Honor World, Ahmed describes a trip he took to Cleveland, Ohio in October of 2001 to deliver the annual lecture of the Ibn Sinna Society.
The night before my event, my host, Dr. Zia Khan, invited about 60 professional Muslims — Arabs, Iranians, South Asians — to his home. …
When I stated that Islam had suffered a major setback after Sept. 11 (for a grossly un-Islamic act of violence), that every Muslim was in the dock as a result … I was challenged by some Arabs and Pakistanis. They called Sept. 11 a glorious event for Islam. The taking of innocent lives was justified, they argued, as Sept. 11 was the continuation of a full-scale Islamic war taking place against Israel, which is backed by the United States.
I heard a similar debate when the Muslim Council of Britain hosted a dinner for me in London in July 2002.”
It seems a story kept from U.S. media was the fact that news media were threatened with death over the video images of Muslims celebrating the 9/11 attacks and news media submitted. Read about that here including The Associated Press on Wednesday protested to the Palestinian Authority about threats against a freelance cameraman who filmed Palestinians celebrating terror attacks in the United States.
Muslims also started referring to the hijackers as the Magnificent 19:
An Egyptian letter translated to English describing the events of 9/11:
On the terrorist attack of September 11th 2001 I was still living in Egypt (80 million people in this time). 19 Muslim hijackers killed 3000 innocent Americans by their own hands. Almost 80 million Muslim Egyptians following the attacks were celebrating the death of those American victims: All public transport was free this day and for the next three days all the restaurants offered free meals and sweets. All the cinemas and gardens offered free entry, the radio stations didn’t stop playing happy victory songs….
