Fredrick Cohn Esq., Have You No Shame?

It was a smart move on the part of the accused, Abdel Hameed Shehadeh, in hiring a Jewish lawyer as only a Jew would have the nerve to make such an outrageous request.

Fredrick Cohn is in a very difficult position. He’s the attorney defending Abdel Hameed Shehadeh, who is accused of lying about trying to join jihadists in Pakistan. In a country that is still, over a decade later, reeling from 9/11, that’s not going to go over well. So, Mr. Cohn has come up with a unique, though quite offensive solution.

He wants to make sure there are no Jews on the jury. As reported by The Jewish Press, the New York Post and then Algemeiner, Mr. Frederick Cohn had the nerve to stand up in court and say the following:

Given that there’s going to be inflammatory testimony about Jews and Zionism, I think it would be hard for Jews to cast aside any innate antipathy…The American Jewish community is heavily aligned with Israel and Zionism. Here is a guy who is a Muslim, who is opposed to those things…Your Honor . . . as you know, I’m not wild about having Jews on the jury in this case.

The fact that this violates the U.S. Constitution doesn’t seem to bother Freddie.

The fact that he himself is Jewish doesn’t bother him either.

Smart move on the part of Abdel Hameed Shehadeh in hiring a Jewish lawyer – only a Jew would have the nerve to make such an outrageous request.

Personally, I once had the hope that separating people on the basis of their religion had gone out with the Nazis. But of course, this is what the terrorists did at Entebbe in 1976, when they separated the Jewish and Israeli passengers aboard a hijacked Air France plane.

I know the world screams when Israel even attempts to profile based on religion and/or appearance. So, if I understand this correctly, according to the world of Fredrick Cohn, it’s illegal to profile by religion to stop someone who might be planning on blowing up a plane or murdering people, but it is legal to profile Jews to let get his client off for trying to join a terrorist organization to commit Jihad….yeah, that makes sense…

Mr. Fredrick Cohn…you really are dumb.
