Hamas-Repping, ‘Certified Self-Loathing’ Jewish Lawyer Indicted Over $3M in Income

Stanley L. Cohen, a Manhattan based Jewish lawyer who made a name for himself representing members of terror groups, has been charged in a Manhattan court for wire fraud and for failing to report more than $3 million in income, the New York Post reported.

Cohen, whose clients have included Hamas official Mousa Abu Marzook and Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law, faces up to 20 years jail-time. He also currently faces similar charges made last year in a Syracuse court.

On his Twitter account Cohen refers to himself as a “‘Certified Selfloathing’ Jew” and an “AntiZionist.”

Following the Syracuse charges Cohen claimed that he has “known for almost a decade that some prosecutors in the Justice Department have been looking for a way to curtail my practice, and that law enforcement has been investigating me actively for years.”

“I have every reason to believe that my oppositional politics have drawn the attention resulting in this indictment,” he asserted.

In 2012 Cohen arranged an interview for the Jewish Daily Forward with Abu Marzook, the Hamas chief’s first with a Jewish publication.

Cohen represented Marzook in 1995 after he was arrested  in New York at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Israel sought his extradition from the U.S. at the time, but Marzook was able to return to Jordan.

The defense attorney has claimed in the past that Israel was “the principal beneficiary” of the September 11th 2001 terror attacks and that the Mossad played a role in bringing down the World Trade Center in New York. He has also boasted of spending time with arch-terrorist Yasser Arafat and having lunch with the mastermind of the 1985 Achille Lauro ship hijacking in which a Jewish wheelchair bound man, Leon Klinghoffer, was murdered and thrown overboard.

    I am reminded of Dante’s Divine Comedy, specifically, the ninth circle in The Inferno, where traitors are meted out punishment. The poet describes both Count Ugolino and Archbishop Ruggieri, two real historical figures, frozen in a lake of ice in a region called Antenora for a series of betrayals against the City of Pisa. For their crimes, Dante indicates that “Ugolino is eating the back of Ruggieri’s head like a dog using its strong teeth to gnaw a bone.” May the Marzook and Cohen respectively share a similar fate!
