Jury Seated in Smiling Terrorist Megahed Trial: Juror Has Muslim Son-in-Law

By Debbie Schlussel
The jury’s been picked and seated in the trial of Youssef Megahed, an Egyptian here on a student visa, who was caught transporting pipe bombs and speeding in a car in South Carolina, toward New York City. His partner in Islamic terrorist crime, Ahmed Mohamed, pleaded guilty and is serving a fifteen year prison sentence. I’ve given the “Debbie’s Notes” version of the case here.
One of the jurors is

a 20-year Air Force veteran who said his son-in-law is Muslim.

Hmmm . . . which do you think will trump his vision in this case–his service to America or his likely desire not to see that, like this guy, his own son-in-law might just be out to destroy America and blow people and buildings up?

I vote the latter. We don’t know this guy’s relationship with his son-in-law, but even if he doesn’t like him, people tend to want to overcome cognitive dissonance. I doubt he wants to see the father or future father of his grandkids–the guy that’s sleeping with his daughter–as a terrorist. And that’s likely gonna be his frame of reference here.
Let’s hope the other jurors aren’t of the O.J. variety and can overcome this guy’s familial loyalties. Among the others:

a mortgage underwriter, a corporate and securities law attorney, an unemployed mechanic, two accountants, a Web designer.

I’m not bettin’ on ’em.

I thought the prosecution had a say in who got picked to be a juror as well. Wtf?
Excellent side by side picture btw.

Not only that, but another juror’s barber’s wife has a Muslim hairstylist!

samurai:
I believe you are referring to a Peremptory challenge. Per Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peremptory_challenge
“refers to a right in jury selection for the defense and prosecution to reject a certain number of potential jurors who appear to have an unfavorable bias without having to give any reason.”
I guess the prosecution trusts someone with potentially Islamic leanings but do not trust Jews to be let out on bail:

How dare you disparage a twenty-year veteran of the US armed forces! Do you think our military is made up of people so stupid that they are incapable of remaining impartial and judging a case on the facts presented to them? I can’t decide who you are insulting most – the military, the American public or goyem.
[LAMIAU: EVER HEAR OF A GUY NAMED JOHN ALLAN MUHAMMAD? GUESS I CAN NO LONGER COMMENT ON HIM, B/C AFTER ALL HE SERVED IN THE MILITARY! DITTO FOR SO MANY OTHERS LIKE HIM–WHO SHOWED THEIR PAN-ISLAMIC PREJUDICES. JUST BECAUSE ONE SERVED IN THE ARMED FORCES DOESN’T MAKE THEM IMMUNE FROM BEING AN IDIOT OR PREJUDICED TOWARD MUSLIMS. WAKE UP.
AND, UM, WHERE DID I COMMENT ABOUT NON-JEWS OR AS YOU CALL THEM, “GOYEM’? DID IT NOT OCCUR TO YOU THAT PLENTY OF JEWS HAVE SERVED IN THE MILITARY, INCLUDING MY FATHER? YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIS GUY’S RELIGION IS. YOU JUST ASSUMED. METHINKS YOU HAVE AN ANTI-SEMITIC CHIP ON YOUR SHOULDER, AND IT’S NOT A PRETTY ACCESSORY. DS]

I’ve served and recieved an honorable discharge after 5 1/2 years. Got out a sergeant. I question his ability. Since when does being a vet exempt one from being questioned? Ever hear of Ft. Leavenworth Kansas? Military prison with a bunch of dirt bags that all served. Part of the reason I got out in 91′ was the amount of peace time morons I had to work with everyday.

I was referring to your remark about the superior intelligence of Jews. Methinks you look down on everyone.
[LAMIAU: WELL, I NEVER SAID THAT. IN FACT, I SAID THAT IT’S NOT NECESSARILY TRUE (THOUGH I DID SAY THAT STUDIES BEAR IT OUT–I GUESS YOU KNOW BETTER THAN THE SCIENTISTS AND IQ TESTS). EXCEPT IN YOUR CASE, IT APPEARS TO BE TRUE, SINCE YOU CAN’T SEEM TO READ OR COMPREHEND WHAT I WRITE PROPERLY. IF YOU THINK I’M LOOKING DOWN ON YOU IN PARTICULAR, YOU ARE CORRECT. AND IT’S DUMB AND ANTI-SEMITIC COMMENTS LIKE YOURS THAT GIVE ME A GOOD REASON. IF YOU REALLY THINK I LOOK DOWN ON EVERYONE, ONE WONDERS WHY YOU READ THIS SITE. PRETTY MUCH EVERY SINGLE COMMENT OF YOURS IS NEGATIVE. LOOK IN THE MIRROR. DS]
