Muslim Terrorist Wannabe’s Jewish Lawyer Seeks to Bar Jews from Jury UPDATE

Cohn's effort highlights an increasing tendency, in an effort to achieve "fairness" towards accused terrorists, of marching along a road littered with the civil rights of others.

In the American legal system, Silverglate told The Jewish Press, “exclusion would have to be determined on an individualized basis.”  In other words, you cannot bar an entire class of people based on a particular characteristic such as race, religion, or gender.

Efforts to reach Mr. Cohn for comment were unsuccessful.

UPDATE: Judge Vitaliano rejected Shehadeh’s request that Jews be barred from the jury, attorney Frederick Cohn told ABCNews.com late this afternoon.

  1. Charlie Hall says:

    All Jews in the Southern District of New York who get summoned for federal jury duty in the near future need to show up, to make it impossible to get a Judenrein jury! (They are friendly to Jews there; I served a few years ago and when the court clerk saw my yarmulke he handed me a sheet with a list of the locations and times of nearby minyanim.)

  2. How in the world is that constitutional?

  3. Charlie, the case is in the Eastern District in Brooklyn. There are minyanim near that courthouse too. :-)

  4. Charlie Hall says:

    Rats — i'm in the southern district and am abt due for jury duty.

    I do work in downtown brooklyn 1 or 2 days a week and try to make the minyans around there.

  5. Grace Acosta says:

    Thank G-d for Judge Vitaliano! May he have a long and healthy life.

  7. Cohn is the typical Jewish lackey looking to start a controversy by representing racist arab muslims and getting free publicity. He is a discusting coward who will do anything to make a name for himself. I guess the only fair trial this racist animal can get is in a muslim country where he will be set free. To me it is illegal that no Jews would be allowed to serve. Maybe we should use racist, barbaric sharia law?
