Jersey City, NJ - An in-depth report conducted by The Star-Ledger into GOP frontrunner Donald J. Trump’s claim that he saw televised clips of “thousands and thousands” of Muslims celebrating on Jersey City rooftops following the 9/11 attacks has turned up multiple eyewitnesses who say they saw small pockets of Muslim rooftop celebrations, but nothing resembling the scale of Trump’s claim.

NJ.com (http://bit.ly/1Pg3jvT) managed to turn up a retired on-duty cop from 9/11 who said he personally cleared a small rooftop Muslim celebration at 6 Tonnele Ave., as well as a few local residents who say they witnessed other small pockets of jubilant Muslims on John F. Kennedy Boulevard the morning of the attacks.

Retired police captain, Peter Gallagher, said of the 20 to 30-person rooftop celebration he cleared, that “Some men were dancing, some held kids on their shoulders. The women were shouting in Arabic and keening in the high-pitched wail of Arabic fashion. They were told to go back to their apartments since a crowd of non-Muslims was gathering on the sidewalk below and we feared for their safety.”

Tonnele Avenue residents Ron Knight, 56, and Carlos Ferran, 60, said they witnessed Muslims celebrating on John F. Kennedy Blvd.

“Some of them had their hands in the air. They were happy,” Ferran said.

You Trump zombies are really insane. This only proves that Trump was indeed either hallucinating or lying when he said "I saw thousands and thousands of Muslims celebrating in Jersey City." Of course he saw nothing of the kind because he would have to have been on the scene to have witnessed even the very small pockets of celebrants mentioned in the article, and again -- he claimed he saw "thousands and thousands." And yet here you are acting as though this article vindicates him. If you imbeciles were to see Trump waving an ax over someone's head you'd say, "Look, Donald's waving at us!" You look for every excuse and rationalization in order not to have to deal with his lies, exaggerations and just plain ignorance. I'm still waiting to hear even a semi-detailed plan from him on ANYTHING -- the economy, foreign policy, etc. All he says is he'll be a great president and he's got HUGE plans, blah blah blah.

Channel 4 news commentator said that as he was watching the buildings come down from the van, they were cheering in the car next to him. You could bet he was told never to mention anything like that on the air again.

It is a shame that the USA gives so much freedom to these people who only want to see it harmed. So don't live here and don't enjoy the freedom and rights you have now, that you would never have if you lived in your homeland. And if your homeland was so wonderful that you want its type of life for here, don't live here. Is it that simple? Or are these people just haters and attackers, something that is in their culture and in their blood? Even when they live here, they can't let go of their hatred.

Even ten Muslims celebrating on 9/11 is ten too many. And by the way those 10 have since multiplied by far.
Nitpicking the exact amount of celebrating Muslims is childish and quite sad given what's going on around the world.

So brainiac, was Hilary lying at the debate when she said Isis is using videos of Trump to recruit? Has she provided proof? Has her staff, when they were questioned all over the political shows the next day? The answer is NO, Niw lets see how much of a hypocrite you are,...did Hilary lie? We await your (no doubt double standard) answer.

You're an anti Semitic liar, the men in the van were proven to have been taking pictures and were found comp,geeky innocent of any wrongdoing, but that doesn't fit with your dishonest and hateful liberal agenda, does it?

You are living proof that so many in the heimishe community are incapable of honest intellectual debate. You think that if someone points out what a lying fraud Donald Trump is, then somehow that person must be pro-Hillary. I've been a Republican for 37 years. I strongly dislike the Clintons. And, yes, Hillary lied about ISIS using Trump videos. So what? The subject here is Trump and his never-ending series of lies, exaggerations, half-truths, etc. The reason why I'm so opposed to Trump isn't because I'm pro-Hilary -- it's because I know what any savvy political observer knows -- Trump will either lose to Hillary in a landslide of biblical proportions or if he runs as an independent he'll tip the election to her by drawing zombies who would otherwise vote Republican. Either way, he's the best thing that ever happened to the Democrats. Trump alienates every single demographic the Republicans know they need to do better with in order to win -- college-educated women, Hispanics, blacks, young voters.

you are right Jews hate Israel I saw thousands protesting against Israel and thousands going to Iran.

Fact Check it was only a few numbers of Jews.

Even ten Jews going to Iran or dancing with the PLO is ten too many. And by the way those 10 have since multiplied by far. Nitpicking the exact amount of demonstrating is childish

sounds good now Happy
