Abdel Hameed Shehadeh
A terror suspect was convicted in Brooklyn Monday of lying to the FBI about plans to team up with the Taliban or al-Qaeda.
Inside Brooklyn Federal Court, attorney Frederick Cohn, representing an accused terrorist, told the judge, “I’m not wild about having Jews on the jury in this case.”
A criminal complaint said Shehadeh, a U.S. citizen, lived on Staten Island in early 2008 when he devised a plan to travel to Pakistan to join the Taliban or a similar fighting group.
A judge ordered him sent back to Brooklyn after he was charged with making false statements in a matter involving international terrorism.
