A Nigerian woman has been dismissed after being picked out as a juror for the trial of underwear bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. 

According to the Associated press, just thirty minutes after 12 jurors and four alternates jurors were selected for the trial, U.S. District Judge, Nancy Edmunds told the court that there was a problem with one juror. She then dismissed a woman who had identified herself as being from Nigeria, Abdulmutallab's home country without any explanations to the court.

The woman had said in court that she is from Nigeria's "Middle Belt," where there have been dozens of ethnic and religious clashes leaving hundreds dead.

Prior to her selection, lawyers on both sides had not objected to keeping the Nigeria woman in the jury pool when she was questioned in court Wednesday. She had said on a jury questionnaire that she was "embarrassed" at the time of the attack. "We all feel it as a community," she said in court.

The start of the trial is scheduled for Tuesday, 11th of October, where lawyers will present their opening statements.  Abdulmutallab, who is acting as his own lawyer but has a court-appointed attorney, may deliver his own remarks. He has pleaded not guilty to eight charges, including conspiracy to commit terrorism and attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.

RE:NOW It all happens on CHRISTMAS DAY with Nigerians.

Umar Abdulmutallab = boko haram = قانون إسلامي

Umar Abdulmutallab tried to blow up a United States airliner bound for Detroit, on CHRISTMAS DAY in 2009.

Boko Haram blew up church all over Northern Nigeria on CHRISTMAS DAY in 2011.

قانون إسلامي is practiced by the backward set of infidel who don't celebrate CHRISTMAS DAY.

my question is Umar Abdulmutallab = boko haram = قانون إسلامي = pure stupidity??

They have hausa sections because you pple are mostly illiterates and understand very little english.

Even d devil will not say this!

I am so angry at u dat i feel like killing u, bt islam 4bids xtra-judicial killing. Okay i hate bt islam i cant hate any creature of Allah; i can only hate his action.Then i'l curse ur jesus&pastors bt islam warns dat it is like cursing mybeloved Muhammad& imams. More so jesus is a prophet of islam. Now dat islam disallows all my attempt at vengeance, wat do i do 2ds evil one who spoke so devilishly abt d same man Micheal Hertz (an american author) acclaims d most influential man in history-MUHAMMAD peace be upon him.
I pray Allah spares ur life & touch ur heart so dat u cry ur heart out 4saying such blasphemy. Bt if u fail 2repent, may Allah disgrace u & mk ur life miserable & punish u in Hell 4eternity. Amin.

SILENT IS THE BEST ANSWER TO A FOOL

SILENT IS THE BEST ANSWER GIVEN TO A FOOL. WHY BLAMING THEM FOR ALL THEIR ULTTERANCES, WHEN EVEN SOME SO CALLED MUSLIM IN THE NAME OF BOKO HARAM MISINTERPRETE THE QURAN AND ALLOW THEMSELVES TO BE THE DEVILS TOOLS HOW DO YOU NOW EXPECT A NON MUSLIM TO UNDERSTAND THE ISLAM. LEAVE THIER COMMENT TO THEM AND DONT REPLY THEIR CURSE. IT IS ONLY A MERE WRITE UP AFTERALL TALK IS CHEAP.

72 virgins

There are many more "abdulmuttallab" in northern nigeria..
The quoran has confused them finally and the "satan of sokoto" his emminence in gingering them daily..
72 virgins waiting for muttallab. thats wat the holy book says..

fool

Yakubu u are a boko haramite..son of devil.. jihadist....Admuttalab is he igbo? dead leader of Bharam was he igbo?....fuck ur use islam and what ever u represent......son of devil that sits down and urinate..

@ core-Igboman, i don't have

@ core-Igboman, i don't have much time eleborating what the evil tribe,the Igbo has done or still doing to nigeria people within and outside, but is important to summaries below:
1-Exporters of Scam and yahoo worldwide.
2-Guiness record holders of Kidnapping
3-Record breakers of Cocain pushing worldwide-- check nigeria pages or ask NDLEA, which tribe has highest criminal record with them
4- Prostitution- Bill is about to be passed by Igboman to legalize prostitution so that in nigeria you will not have problem. Every 10 prostitutes found in europe, asia, USA 8 of them are Igbos.

And about your evil Religion and it PORNOGRAPHY book , read these links:

u must be real sick

they re doin such favor bc they knw that re all educationally backward..so u religious bigot.... use ur head

SR stop allowing yourselves to be used by CAN

CAN people come here & purposely leave comments geared towards provoking a religious war. These naive idiots think America would come in with NATO & fight for them. FYI, should America & NATO come into Nigeria they'll fight on behalf of muslims. Look at USA & UK embassy pages, they have Hausa sections. BBC &VOA have Hausa services. They trade more with muslims in Nigeria than any of you sorry christian idiots. How many Yoruba & other southern languages are recognised by westerners? Harrods & Selfridges have Hausa language & none of the other languages. Those your western christian slave masters would stand by & watch you all being slaughtered. So keep insulting people who are actually faithful to their religion while you people have turned yours into a sick joke.

1). the sex life of Mohammad

Limitation of Knowledge

It is a pity that you don't know what you are talking. a shameless Human being like u. whatever happen u don't need to attach it to prophet of God. If not, u continue dwell in the same vain of ignorance. So, mind ur speech.

I HAVE FOUND IT VERY

I HAVE FOUND IT VERY INSTRUCTIVE THAT NOTWITHSTANDING THE NUMBER OF CHRISTIANS THAT DAILY PROVOCATIVELY INSULT MUSLIMS, THEIR FAITH AND THEIR PROPHET ON THIS SITE I HAVE NEVER FOR ONCE READ A MUSLIM INSULT THE PERSON OF CHRIST!

ISLAMOPHOBIA

I HAVE FOUND IT VERY INSTRUCTIVE THAT NOTWITHSTANDING THE NUMBER OF CHRISTIANS THAT DAILY PROVOCATIVELY INSULT MUSLIMS, THEIR FAITH AND THEIR PROPHET ON THIS SITE I HAVE NEVER FOR ONCE READ A MUSLIM INSULT THE PERSON OF CHRIST!

Osama bin Laden

Osama bin Laden

i wish Osama bin Laden can

i wish Osama bin Laden can come back to this world and tell them that there is no virgil. hell is real.

TRUE ISLAM

True islam is to kill others!

marry young gals who are too young to adults!

Islam will go the way of communism

muhammed lives on!

If there's life after death, as I whole-heartedly believe, muhammed (murderer) must be regreting the useless life he lived here on earth wherever he is now, and I guess he's in the hottest part of hell!
How can a man (ruthless womaniser) out of his weakness as an ordinary mortal, deceive billions of people by authoring such inglorious satanic book called quran?
This was a man who when he was dying told his daughter that he didn't know where he was going, that is: he didn't know where his iniquities & wickedness would take him to, and still people follow his wicked & atrocious ways!
Yesterday, it was abdulmutallab, today, it's boko haram, who knows what they plan to bring up tomorrow?
Woe betide all the followers of muhammed's teachings, for they will inherit hell-fire, starting from here on earth!

He is his own lawyer?

Umar is his own lawyer? This boy is done for.

HE IS READY TO DIE FOR FALSEHOOD!!!

This young and promising Nigerian is prepared to die, unfortunately, for falsehood. What are the rest of us prepared to die for?

In the face of abject poverty and missery in the midst of plenty, we were voted the happiest people on earth. What this boy carry on his inside is what the Egyptians, Libyans, Tunisans and Syrians carry. Fortunately for them, it was channeled positively. Imagine if this boy channel this spirit positively. One hundred of his likes will chase away any corrupt government in Nigeria.

The alimangeries in the North and the jobless youths in the South are potential resources for suicide bombing soon. A person that sees no value in life will be prepared to go down with anyone.

We are all sitting on a keg of gun powder, and yet laughing. Let the laugh continue.

Silence would be the best

Silence would be the best answer for a fool like you, but I wont give you the pleasure of golden silence.An ignorant bastard whose mother regrets the day you were born can use his foul mouth to speak ill. Evil spews from you...I rest my case.

All ignorant born again fools

Even your Daddy GOs know better than to curse islam and Allah. They all read the Quran and go to the malams to pray for them.
There is only one God, so curse Him as much as you like. When death eventually visits you as it must visit all us, you will come to know.
The mirage that has been deceiving you will just be that.
Carry one with your insults, the result is awaiting you at the border.

Can't stop laffing

All said well, Mutallab is just τ̣̣ђё true infidel, he sshld have his ass kicked as well a̶̲̥̅̊s many times he feels he can rep himself in court, τ̣̣ђё boy ȋ̊§ just not ģσσd!

hang the fool like osama

Sultanofshit,i agree with u my brother.Mohammed curse be upon him,started all this mess with the introduction of this satanic religion.

I hate This boy

Well, fundamental human rights should be protected...... may i suggest that America should please help us kill this boy since he wanted to kill himself, why keepinf him alive? maybe along with his family members. the truth is that Islamic religion is that rooted in violence and i pray all the muslims with boko haram tendencies should sleep and not wake up one day.

So what if they are jews????

So what if they are jews???? How does that fight affect you?

@Mujiya : Your curse wont work !!!

Submitted by Mujiya (not verified) on October 6, 2011 - 23:50.

Coward why not give us your real name so that we curse you as you curse our prophet? You are surely a product of bastards like you. You will roast in hell, but before you die, wait and see.

As if your curse will work !!
By now you should know allah completely depends on you to kill for him !!

How long will you continue to bow to a god that needs so much defending but can't defend himself ??

allah is not even "akbar" enough to tell you sultan of sokoto's real identity and location !!!

Meanwhile Jesus arms are open wide to embrace you if you repent.

there is God

God will judge us all.US themselves are terrorist.they are jews and they protect the interest of Isreal.this is still the continuation of the Arab vs Jew war we are witnessing now.the jew r using the US to fight the Arabs and take control of their wealth.All over the world their is no region as blessed as the Arabs and now their is economic recession and they want to invade and take control of the Arab's resources.but at the end God will judge all of us according to our actions and behaviours.

@sultanofshit

Coward why not give us your real name so that we curse you as you curse our prophet? You are surely a product of bastards like you. You will roast in hell, but before you die, wait and see.

its all part of the islamic agenda

The poor demented guy{despite the billions owned by the family}has been howling that he only believes in allah!Maybe he should be tried in a sharia court.As for the verdict,your guess is as good as mine.The father,instead of hiding his head in shame,is busy promoting islamic banking in nigeria with malam sanusi!may God save us.Only God knows what he intends to use the islamic banking to achieve!

just give him his underwear

just give him his underwear pants and take him to a desert and explode it for him.They should not waste tax payers money in trying him.
