-9/11 Defense Attorney in a Hijab Asks Court to Direct Women to Follow Her Example

From Fox News:

The defense attorney who wore a traditional Islamic outfit during the rowdy arraignment of the accused Sept. 11 terrorists is defending her courtroom appeal that other women in the room wear more "appropriate" clothing to the proceedings — out of respect for her client’s Muslim beliefs. 

Cheryl Bormann, counsel for defendant Walid bin Attash, attended the arraignment Saturday dressed in a hijab, apparently because her client insisted on it. She further requested that the court order other women to follow that example so that the defendants do not have to avert their eyes "for fear of committing a sin under their faith." 

At a press conference Sunday at Guantanamo Bay, Bormann said she dresses in a hijab at "all times" when she meets with her client "out of respect" for his beliefs.

The court ignored her appeal and the arraignment took on the characteristics of a circus as the defendants did their traditional Muslim prayers in the midst of the court proceedings. Later the court took a break during the appropriate prayer times. The families of 9/11 victims were reportedly horrified and disgusted at the spectacle that followed.

Response: Can you imagine what this case would have been like if President Obama and Eric Holder got their original wish and had the case transferred to a civilian court in NY City? Fortunately the New York authorities protested.

Can you also imagine a defense attorney asking everyone in the courtroom to wear a cross in order to honor her client’s Christian faith? Not the same I know but just as ridiculous. Next the defense attorneys will be demanding that their clients be judged according to Muslim Sharia law.

The press in America is pretty much ignoring the trial so far. Make no mistake here, the entire world is watching these proceedings particularly those in the Middle East. Expect Muslim protests to follow. America is going to be on trial and in some respects it is 9/11 all over again except this time it will be jihadi legal attack upon our freedoms, our culture, and our judicial system.              *Top

    I submit that the best analogy is to Judaism. Judaism has detailed laws prescribing diet, not to mention extensive behavior guidelines. Yet in 2000 years since the Diaspora began, you cannot find a single example of a Jewish individual (or community) attempting to impose its religious law upon a non-Jewish person or community. Islam, in contrast, has a breathtakingly extensive history of insisting that its religious rules must be obeyed by all, both Muslim and Non-Muslim alike. What is going on in the courtroom is a small scale example of the practice of imposition of Sharia law upon non-Moslem populations in various countries down through history.
