Older articles published by news media organizations from the years 1995 on are accessible through a source called the Internet Way Back Machine, you just have to do a little digging. I have found at least 7 different articles about how Muslims were cheering and celebrating the devastating and murderous attacks of 9/11/2001 by 19 Muslim terrorists in four hijacked jet airliners that forever changed our world. Following is a NY Post article of 9/18/2001 by Fred Siegel that notes the Muslim Celebrations in Paterson NJ and quotes then Mayor Giuliani. Fred Siegel is still posting articles for the NY Post and is a contributing editor of the Manhattan Institute’s City Journal.
NYPOST.COM Radical Islam At War With America Tuesday, September 18, 2001 By Fred Siegel.…The issue is not Israel. Usama bin Laden blew up a U.S. embassy when the Oslo “peace process” was at the height of its “success.” The issue is the inability of Islamic regimes around the globe to come to grips with the modern world. While Islamic terrorists were hitting New York, Muslim militants in northern Nigeria were killing Christians. The violence occurred in the majority Christian city of Jos, where the Nigerian government has imposed the Sharia (Islamic law) on the largely Christian population. The Coalition for the Defense of Human Rights, an organization supporting those persecuted by militant Islam, argues that “radical Islamism is a world ideology, fielding a world terror-army, which oppresses millions with a racist ideology” that deems non-Muslims less than fully human.
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 Yorkers that it would be wrong to take their anger out on the city’s Arab and Muslim residents. Attacks on Arab-American (MUSLIMS) in Paterson or elsewhere are utterly indefensible. Omar, a Muslim New Yorker and former student of mine at Cooper Union, e-mailed me to say he was “sickened to watch Middle Easterners (MUSLIMS) celebrate our sorrow.” He is an American who has imbibed our values while maintaining his Muslim faith. He wants no truck with those who kill in the name of Islam.
But it’s fair to ask this of those non-Muslims at the BBC, the Nation, the New York Review of Books and other rationalizers of Palestinian and Islamic terror: Why is it that everywhere in the world where Muslims are in the majority, their minorities are persecuted? For all their grievances against America, there have been no Cuban, Vietnamese or Serbian suicide bombers bringing death to our shores, and their people haven’t been celebrating in the streets at the sight of American blood. America, not Israel, is The Great Satan. It was hard to acknowledge before the World trade Center attacks, but radical Islam has been at war with us for a long time.
