|Muslim crowd rejoices on 9/11 in Palestinian-ruled Gaza|
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani acknowledged on CNN today that there was some celebrating by American Muslims in New York on Sept. 11, 2001.
"We did have some celebrating, that is true," Giuliani told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on CNN's "New Day." "We had pockets of celebration some in Queens, some in Brooklyn -- 10, 12, 30, 40" people." Camerota attempted to invalidate Mr. Trump's claims based on the quantity dispute, not the point that some Muslims in America did and do support jihad to convert and conquer America.

Here is a long list of surveys showing levels of Muslim support for control over the west via jihad and terror against non-Muslims.
|36% of Muslims believe 9/11 attacks "morally justified|
In a new article by Robert Satloff, (Just Like Us! Really? in Weekly Standard 5/12/2008, he blows a few more holes into the book - but he also gets a hold of the all-important data: how many Muslims mostly or partially justified 9/11?
The answers are not quite as comforting as the authors implied. In addition to the 6.5% who felt that 9/11 was "mostly" justified, we find out:
The cover-up is even worse. The full data from the 9/11 question show that, in addition to the 13.5 percent, there is another 23.1 percent of respondents -- 300 million Muslims -- who told pollsters the attacks were in some way justified. Esposito and Mogahed don't utter a word about the vast sea of intolerance in which the radicals operate.
One America News reports that former NYC Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik also confirmed public celebrations in Muslim neighborhoods throughout the NY/NJ metro area. Combined with the global celebrations, he said, the Muslims cheering the overthrow of America clearly qualified as Trump's figurative thousands.
And then there is the more fundamental fraud of using the 9/11 question as the measure of "who is a radical." Amazing as it sounds, according to Esposito and Mogahed, the proper term for a Muslim who hates America, wants to impose Sharia law, supports suicide bombing, and opposes equal rights for women but does not "completely" justify 9/11 is . . . "moderate."
So over one out of every three Muslims worldwide, 36.6%, can find some justification for 9/11; and about 80% of those were defined as "moderate" in this book.
Which means that there are nearly a half-billion Muslims worldwide who would be considered supporters of terror by any reasonable definition, not "only" the 91 million that the authors claim.
This is consistent with other polls over the same time period, notably the Pew Global Attitudes Project which has found declining but still significant support for suicide bombings among Muslims in various countries - 70% in Palestinian Arab territories, 31% in Lebanon, "only" 8% in Egypt.
As long as many Muslims inside America inwardly support jihadist terrorism to conquer America, how much difference does it make how many celebrated 9/11 jihad attacks America outwardly?
Were Israelis detained on 9/11 spies?
A rumor which persists, among the "9/11 Truthers" is that a group of Israeli laborers who were jocular while observing the World Trade Center disaster from New Jersey - suspected of celebrating their handiwork in the collapse of the buildings. ABC News' 20/20 report says that while individuals in the group may have contributed intelligence to Israel, after lengthy US detentions and investigation- it was determined that none of them had foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks.
The FBI told ABC NEWS, "To date, this investigation has not identified anybody who in this country had pre-knowledge of the events of 9/11."
Sources also said that even if the men were spies, there is no evidence to conclude they had advance knowledge of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11. The investigation, at the end of the day, after all the polygraphs, all of the field work, all the cross-checking, the intelligence work, concluded that they probably did not have advance knowledge of 9/11," Cannistraro noted.
As to what they were doing on the van, they say they read about the attack on the Internet, couldn't see it from their offices and went to the parking lot for a better view. But no one has been able to find a good explanation for why they may have been smiling with the towers of the World Trade Center burning in the background. Both the lawyers for the young men and the Israeli Embassy chalk it up to immature conduct.This year, on Giving Tuesday (or any day this month) please join in supporting an independent press for freedom's future - would you please make a donation to Democracy Broadcasting?
