David Sheen, "Were the notorious..." The Gray Zone, Sep 11, 2021.

'At no point did Maria or any witness allege that the Israeli men were dancing in any way. The FBI report refers to the men as the "Israeli Nationals" and "The High Fivers." The first documented allegation that the men had danced in celebration of the Twin Towers attack comes not from any American law enforcement agency, but rather from the father of Mohammad Atta, the ringleader of the Al Qaeda-affiliated cell that hijacked American Airlines Flight 11 and crashed it into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. On September 28, 2001, a USA Today article entitled "Conspiracy theories say Israel did it" cited Egyptian news agency MENA's interview with the elder Atta, complaining that insufficient focus was being paid to reports that the FBI had "seized a number of Jews while they were dancing in celebration over the incidents."...

An internal FBI memo dated September 24, 2001 stated: "Both the Newark and the New York Divisions conducted a thorough investigation which determined that none of the Israelis had any information on prior knowledge regarding the bombing of the World Trade Center. Furthermore, Newark and New York determined that none of the Israelis were actively engaged in clandestine intelligence activities in the United States."

Conspiracy Theories say Israel [sic] did it. By James Cox, USA TODAY, Sep. 28, 2001:

The Muslim world World Trade Center ... A group of five [sic] Jews was arrested shortly following the attacks after being spotted videotaping the crashes on a New York rooftop and [sic] dancing in jubilation... Typical is an editorial in the Syria Times...

The grieving father of suspected hijacker Mohamed Atta, interviewed by Egyptian news agency MENA, wondered why U.S. media outlets has chosen to ignore that U.S. authorities seized a number of Jews while they were [sic] dancing [sic] in celebration [sic] of over the incidents." The answer to that question was obvious to Ismail Abu-Shanab, a member of the militants Palestinian group Hamas.
