JSTL loop through jQuery array

I have a jQuery function that builds an array of hyperlinks that I then need to display out onto screen

The array is built from the following:-

Then in a div in my page I was hoping for something like:-

But the links are simply not appearing, so I'm guessing the JSTL can not see the jQuery thumbnail array.

Any advice would be appriciated.

JSTL is executed entirely on the server side before the client even sees the page.
