Terror attorney in hijab requests all Gitmo women submit to sharia

via Attorney in hijab defends call for other women at 9/11 hearing to wear ‘appropriate’ clothing | 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. Asked why she requested other women do the same, Bormann said, “When you’re on trial for your life, you need to be focused.”

Bormann, who is not Muslim, claimed the issue came up several years ago, when a paralegal wore “very short skirts” and it became a distraction for the defendants. She said that on Saturday, “somebody” was also dressed “in a way that was not in keeping with my client’s religious beliefs.”

“If because of someone’s religious beliefs, they can’t focus when somebody in the courtroom is dressed in a particular way, I feel it is incumbent upon myself as a counsel to point that out and ask for some consideration from the prosecution,” she said. “Suffice to say it was distracting to members of the accused.”

The clothing request was just one of several unusual moments during Saturday’s lengthy and chaotic hearing.

The court hearing for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his four co-defendants should have taken a couple of hours at most. Instead it lasted almost 13 hours, including meal and prayer breaks, as the men appeared to make a concerted effort to stall Saturday’s hearing.

They knelt in prayer, ignored the judge, wouldn’t listen to Arabic translations over their head sets and one even insisted on having the more than 20 pages detailing the charges against them read aloud, rather than deferred for later in their case as the judge wanted, which added more than two hours to the proceedings.

“They’re engaging in jihad in a courtroom,” said Debra Burlingame, whose brother, Charles, was the pilot of the plane that flew into the Pentagon. She watched the proceeding from Brooklyn.

    • I am surprized that they would allow a female to represent them. If they were Amish would we dress as they would, America is all about individuality, What if the judge was a female would she be required to wear one?

      • A female cannot be a judge. They are property under islamic law, like a goat. They would have acid thrown in their faces for such an insult as being over men.

  1. “When you’re on trial for your life, you need to be focused.”

    Its not OUR fault that they can’t practice enough self control, even when their lives are on the line. It tells a lot about them, doesn’t it?

  2. This ISLAMIC BITCH had better act acordingly in OUR COURTS whether it is CIVILIAN OR MILITARY. The JUDGE needs to order her to REMOVE THE REDICULESS TENT as it is a disruption to the trial. LOCK AND LOAD.

  3. Oh’ really, “the other women should wear appropriate clothing out of respect for her client’s religion?” What a mind boggling cheek! And did this take place in Baghdad, Damascus? One would think so, the way this idiot Bormann acted. Incredible!

    • Why should any woman present give a skinny rats azz or an iota of care about the comfort of the murderer of her relative ? The d

    • ” …and they’ll be wearing ,short skirts, high heels and low cut tops ” I would NOT suggest that. but instead all non muslim women should go in with niqab,ie complete Vail where only the eyes of a woman can be seen and when entering the court must refuse for security check ,say we are muslims and will not have security check.

  5. I take it this attorney has lost her mind??? What gives her the idea she can come into a American Court and ask that all women wear proper attire? I think the judge needs to allow one person stay there dressed up as porky pig.

  6. If there is anything in the world we do NOT need to do it is to show even the slightest deference or respect to these corrupt servants of satan and their satanic belief system masquerading as a ‘religion of peace’. IN THEIR FACE!

  7. I hope they keep making such outlandish request because the more they do this the greater they reveal to the public who we are really dealing with. Frauds, who use what they call their religion to cover and protect their goal of the take over of AMerican. Shamefully, with the help of our own accommodating government.

  8. Groveling dhimmidom right before our very eyes.

    They behave with absolute contempt towards our court and legal system. She says respect them.

    What, precisely is there to respect?

    • There’s nothing to respect. And if they wish to carry on the way that they have and ‘not’ participate in their own defense then the judge/courts should proceed without their participation. They’re just trying to drag this out for as long as they can and make a mockery out of our court system, and us, in the process.
      As for any women wearing that crap? The Hell!?

    • well your comment saved me some typing- had the exact words ready to comment- They have no respect for us and we are under no obligation to show respect to these whiny pigs-

      These Muslims supposedly already “:misunderstood” their religion by becoming murderers- the bullshit story wqe aer supposed to beleive is that theyre an exception in ISLAM- or is she saying that murdering civilians is halal for Muslims? and yet they cannot look at a woman for fear of sin? they are sinners lady lawyer and you are a fool and a disgrace.

  9. This is just re-victimization of those who suffered the loss of their loved ones. The judge has to get control of this circus. This should be tried in a military, and not a civilian court.

  10. Someone stuff a pair of dirty socks in that lawers mouth and duct tape it shut. If they want to ignor the Judge in court then just declare all of them guilty and execute them now, case closed.

  11. Just a random thought on this lawyer and Western politicians who are photographed abroad wearing hijabs when they visit Muslim countries…

    Why must they wear Arab style hijabs? Even if you concede the premise that Western women should cover themselves out of deference or respect (which I do not, but for the sake of argument), why must they wear desert-style hijabs??

    Why not wear a very conservative dress that comes down to the ankles and a Queen Elizabeth style hat? Or an Eastern Orthodox head scarf? Or a wedding veil? Or a gypsy wrap? Or a Kentucky Derby hat? Or an old-lady-Easter-Sunday-hat? Or a female Army drill sergeant’s hat? Or any number of Christian/Western oriented conservative garments that cover the head?

    Ladies, forgive me, but please stop trying to be Gladys of Arabia. If you insist on subjecting yourself to a state of subservient dhimmitude, the least you could do is stick with a conservative Western fashion statement rather than aping the trashbag styles of the Middle East.

    • Agree with Money Jihad.

      Just tell me the ground rules, and I’ll pick out clothes that comply.

      Then again, maybe they don’t want their own women seeing that there are other modest wardrobe options out there. Or that women are perfectly capable of making their own decisions in that regard.

        • Because you are conquered. Because we let them build mosques here we are taken as an islamic trophy and this becomes a muslim country.

          • Actually, I was referring to Money Jihad’s third paragraph about Western women at least wearing Western-style conservative clothing in Muslim countries. I agree that Western women shouldn’t need to dress Arab-style to be acceptable, but sometimes the locals don’t agree. Which is why I have no desire to visit any country where just being a woman would be held against me.

            When I attended an Orthodox bar mitzvah, I wore a long-sleeved blouse and long skirt that can just as easily be a workplace outfit. Of all the women there, only about 10 of us were dressed according to Orthodox modesty. And two of those who weren’t, I knew were Orthodox. Never figured that one out.

  12. 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. But they believe in child sex, sex with the dead, and sharia law over the west. What about my beliefs they are dangerous savages and should be caged?

  13. One of the judges said they were prepared for outrageous requests. This is a common tactic for defense. It delays the proceedings but does help down the road should there be a procedural appeal, I think. Keep the O.J. Simpson case in mind as this unwinds.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
