Welp, wouldn't be the first to betray his own kind.

"Given that there's going to be inflammatory testimony about Jews and Zionism, I think it would be hard for Jews to cast aside any innate antipathy," Cohn said.

A friend of mine is a defense attorney, specializing in capital crimes.  He says it's not always about acquitting the defendant.  It's about making sure he gets the best trial he possibly can, so there's no chance of a successful appeal.  Stacking a Muslim terrorist jury with Jews might help get a conviction, but that shiat's gonna get appealed forever.  $$$$.
