Aafia Siddiqui has learnt how to work the American justice system to her advantage. She has now asked the judges to spend tax payers’ money on DNA testing of all the prospective members of jury at her trial to screen the presence of a Jewish person in the jury.
It must be noted that Dr Aafia Siddiqui had no qualms in accepting scholarship and stipend money from a renowned Jewish institution like Brandeis University from where she obtained her PhD degree but now she deems it inappropriate that Jewish people be part of jury at her trial.
According to news reports, Ms Siddiqui has repeatedly called into question the integrity of the court and its ‘Zionist’ allegiances and has also attempted to fire her lawyers.
She said: “If they have a Zionist or Israeli background . . . they are all mad at me. I have a feeling everyone here is [Jewish] — subject to genetic testing. They should be excluded if you want to be fair. “I’m boycotting the trial, just to let all of you know. There are too many injustices. I’m out of this.”
Her trial has been delayed repeatedly while psychological tests are carried out, of course on tax payers’ money.
If the US justice department continues to treat people like Aafia Siddiqui with kid gloves, there is likelihood that they are freed as double agents back into their supposed ‘home’ countries to wreak further havoc. I, for one, do not want people like her back in the country. She is a naturalized US citizen who chose US over Pakistan. I say she stick it out in the US where she will be held accountable to her racist comments. Sadly, no one would bat an eyelash at such blatant display of racism in Pakistan.
