St. Petersburg Times reported Al-Arian's Tampa attorney, Jack Fernandez, wrote that on Sept. 18 he asked Gordon Kromberg, assistant U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia, to delay Al-Arian's transfer 30 days until after the Islamic religious holidays of Ramadan. According to a court motion filed by Fernandez, Kromberg responded: "If they can kill each other during Ramadan, they can appear before the grand jury, all they can't do is eat before sunset.
That is an extremely good point. And he was not pressing for Al Arian to eat while appearing before the Grand Jury, in fact eating in the court room is probably forbidden.I believe Mr. Al-Arian's request is part of the attempted Islamization of the American Justice System. I am not going to put off Dr. Al-Arian's grand jury appearance just to assist in what is becoming the Islamization of America."
