When the media howled for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s head and an apology for claiming that Muslims in America celebrated as the Twin Towers burned, he stood tall and refused to back down.
New evidence shows he was right.
Amid silence from the media giants who claimed Trump was wrong, the truth emerges in the form of a New York Post article from September of 2011, in which writer Fred Siegel recalls the events of 9/11.
“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 attack in New York and Washington,” Siegel wrote.
“But Mayor Giuliani (who has been tireless and magnificent in this crisis) rightly warned New Yorker-ers that is would be wrong to take their anger our on the city’s Arab and Muslim residents. Attacks on Arab-Americans in Paterson or elsewhere are utterly indefensible,” Siegel wrote.
