Attorney in hijab defends call for other women at 9/11 hearing to wear 'appropriate' clothing
foxnews.com ^ | 5/6/12 | AP/Foxnews

Posted on 05/06/2012 9:16:19 AM PDT by ColdOne

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."

I’m surprised she didn’t just fly a plane into the
court room. She should be ashamed of herself,
but then she’s a lawyer already.

The concept of religious freedom doesn’t seem to appeal to religous fanatics.

Wow. Sounds like a real problem.

But an easy solution just occurred to me:

I think some Hooter’s girls ought to be recruited to serve tea and coffee during the trial. Why aren’t these terrorists being defended by uniformed JAG officers including women?

WHY,WHY, WHY do we keep this madness going? This gooberment (and I include George W’s in this)has crapped all over themselves to make sure we don’t offend these barbaric lunatics!!! It’s our own citizens like this idiot lawyer and another broad from the past Lynne Stewart and many more that have made this a three ring circus.......the USA being the clowns!! Throw ‘em all including our bleeding heart Americans who revere terrorists feelings in a pit and stick a match to the whole bunch of them. DAMN this makes me madder than hell!!

Someone needs to ask her to dress appropriately and have a presence without also imposing their sharia constitution and koranic arguments. This is a American courtroom.

Her defense arguments will be their behavior is acceptable according to Islamic law and needless to say... will have Barry’s support.

I cannot believe how incredibly stupid that is. I mean Dehydrated stupid. Dehydrated-rock-hard stupid. Stupid, so stupid it goes way beyond the stupid we know into a whole different dimension of stupid. It is trans-stupid stupid. Meta-stupid. Stupid collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed. Stupid gotten so dense that no intellect can escape. Singularity stupid. Blazing hot mid-day sun on Mercury stupid. You emit more stupid in one second than our entire galaxy emits in a year. Quasar stupid. Nothing in our universe can really be this stupid. Perhaps this is some primordial fragment from the original big bang of stupid. Some pure essence of a stupid so uncontaminated by anything else as to be beyond the laws of physics that we know.

I wonder if she thinks her clients respect her even a teeny bit, even in a hijab. It surprises me they even accept her as their attorney, knowing what they think of women in general.

Another demonstration of how arrogant these Muslim cutthroats are. As far as I’m concerned, it’s like asking the court at the Nuremberg trials to wear Nazi uniforms.

There’s a very simple solution. The defendants should gouge out each others eyes so that they don’t have to see such an offensive vision. If they can’t see it they can’t be offended!

Better than that, a knee length skirt, a jacket or cardigan, a blouse, and CLOSED TOE shoes. Gray black and white. Dress the part, chickadee.

I think what the defendant is asking is farr. After all, it is his trial and his life is in the balance.

So, it would be appropriate if every infidel just slit their own throats and spare the puar wittle muslim scum from having to share the room with the infidels. It is only fair and respecting to his beliefs.

...but my religion requires hot women to wear only a thong...and be topless. Only the ugly ones must cover up and wear a paper bag on their head.

Therefore Islam must be outlawed because, as their women are always covered, we can’t tell which ones are hot or ugly!

/s

That is about as sane as this....

Out of respect for their beliefs, she should wear a suicide belt.

And, when she’s off alone, use it.

I call for the opposing lawyers and spectators to sex it up. Give em cleavage, push up bras, and dresses that cling to the bootie. And spike heels to make it all wiggle just right.

Really sums up the ludicrousness of Islam in a single moment. Avert your eyes from a woman so as not to commit a “sin,” but kill all the people you want.

When ever these guys are called upon to testify,
the women in the court should flash their tits
at them and every one else should act like it’s
not happening.

Judge: What? She flashed you? Don’t be rediculous!
Another out burst like that and you will be restrained
by topless Bailiffs.

Ms Borman, we find you offensive and inappropriate for showing up in a free American courtroom wearing a black shroud so that you can cover up your person, who just happens to be a woman,in order to control your clients who are obviously no more than animals who are ready to think about humping or will hump anything when exposed to a girl/woman not covered up in a full size set of dirty black sheets,and should this horrible and I do mean horrible sin occur, it will preclude your clients from having sex with the 70 virgins as promised and prayed for everyday of their miserable, horny, evil lives...

... and while you honor their request so that they may spend eternity screwing virgins, you Ms Borman, will be here, still inappropriate and offensive with only your dirty black sheets hanging in your closet as a reminder of the respect you showed to a murderous cult and the absolute disrespect you showed your country-America-by insisting that we all become as “appropriate” as you...

.....no thank you Ms Borman, true Americans who believe in “one nation under God” will be as inappropriate and offensive to Sharia as is humanly possible and will not allow our country to be covered up with the black sheets of Sharia-never- as God is our witness will we respect their hideous, archaic and murderous “religion”-which is the antithesis to everything America stands for and we will fight it till our last free breath...with or without people like you.

Or asking witnesses to wear yellow Star-of-David armbands, just to be properly attentive to the cultural sensibilities of the Nazi defendants.

Is Cheryl Bormann a fool or an idiot?

These fella’s deserve a “fair” trial.

They fly planes into buildings resulting in thousands of innocents. Daily, they continue to take the lives of our military and other “infidels”.

We put them into a killer shark tank so they get a “fair” trial.

Fair is fair.

Make sure the sharks are extra hungry and that the islamonazis, before they reach the tank, are given an IV of bacon fat delivered by the most beautiful, naked women in the world serving them and maybe giving each one an awesome lap dance.

Air it worldwide so the other islamonazis get a good look at what we do to people who kill our people and make our lives angry and sad.

And, it they keep up with the killing, etc. we can show them how sand can become glass. We will give them one warning, where there are no innocents, by showing how sand and glass intersect.

There will not be a second warning.
