Terror Suspect Tells Judge To 'Go To Hell' In Court

Courtroom

A woman facing charges for an alleged terror attack in a store lashed out in court, telling the courtroom to "go to hell."

Rehab Dughmosh, who has pledged allegiance to ISIS, made a brief appearance in court after she allegedly attempted to attack employees with a golf club at a retail store. In court, she stood with her back to the judge and repeatedly interrupted the proceedings to lash out at the judge and those in the room.

"Damn your legislation, damn your nationality, go to hell," she said, CP24 reported. "Hey you infidels, I do not worship what you worship."

The woman, who is Muslim, also reportedly requested to be tried under Sharia law but was denied.

"I’m here for Syria. I’m going to kill everybody," she reportedly shouted in the store at the time of the attack, Toronto Sun reported.

Dughmosh previously refused to attend a court hearing. Attorney Bradley Reitz said court officials may have to physically force a detainee to comply if an order to appear was made by the judge.

"When someone refuses to leave a cell and there is a threat of violence, we don’t as a matter of course use force to remove the person," Reitz told the Toronto Sun. "If court makes an order to bring an inmate to court, staff at the institution will comply and use force."

Robert Goldstein, the judge who denied Dughmosh's request for Sharia law, spoke of his decision during the court appearance.

"Your views about what system you would like to be tried under are completely irrelevant," he said. "You should consider yourself lucky that you are caught up in a justice system of this nature rather than one that in your flight of fancy you seem to think is better."

The attack, which took place in a Canadian Tire store in Toronto, Canada, resulted in charges against Dughmosh of assault with a weapon and uttering death threats.

"These people given consideration to live amongst us...now they want to dictate and take over," one Mad World News reader commented on the site's Facebook page. "They should go back live together somewhere, don't involve us in your ancient religion."

"I'm really surprised she asked for judgement under Sharia law since women are treated so horribly under it," wrote another. "She probably would have been stoned for not covering her face...if she rejects her citizenship take her up on her offer take it away immediately." 

"Yes the judge was right in what he thought was best," another commented. "If you want to live and be American than you should live by American laws and beliefes. Go back to where you came from if you don't want to face the consequences of your own actions aginst America."
