Wow, even for far leftists, the promotion of this woman should be shocking. Seriously, how can anyone overlook the fact that she has actually served time in Israel?
Rasmea Odeh is now going to be a major voice on the conflict between Israel and Palestine.
The Palestinian woman was convicted of a bombing attack in Israel in 1969. Now, she will be speaking at the Jewish Voice for Peace rally in April. She doesn’t exactly sound like the poster child for a rally truly focused on peace and love to me.
The illegal Muslim immigrant was allegedly a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). The organization has long been classified as a terrorist group.
One of the bombs, which the feminist movement leader was convicted of setting, exploded at a supermarket in Jerusalem. The blast killed two Israeli students and injured nine others. I guess the Women’s Movement has waived the rights of those women?
Odeh was also convicted for setting off a bomb at the British consulate in Israel. This is the kind of woman liberals are holding up as a role model and peace advocate? In 1980, Rasmea Odeh was set free from her prison cell in Israel as part of a prisoner exchange.
She now claims she did not have any part in the horrific bombings. Odeh further claimed her confession to the terrorist acts were uttered because she was being sexually assaulted by Israeli military police and was tortured. There is no proof of Odeh’s claims.
Somehow, and it boggles the mind, fellow patriots, this woman with TWO terrorism convictions on her record became a naturalized American citizen in 2004! In 2013, she was arrested on immigration fraud charges and convicted in federal court of the crimes but was not deported.
The vetting process in 2004 was apparently even more lackluster than it is now or at least just as porous. The immigration fraud charges were levied because she did not disclose she was linked to a terrorist group or that she had been imprisoned in Israel.
The internet existed in 2004. Did the agents reviewing her immigration request not even bother to Google her? WHY is she still here? Well, Odeh once again got to see the inside of a jail cell. She spent 18 months in prison, had her citizenship stripped, and she was ordered to be deported. She has challenged that order in court.
So, the convicted terrorist is not only still enjoying life in America, but she is also becoming a vocal anti-Trump advocate and leader of the far left militant feminist movement!
Rasmea Odeh will be speaking alongside Linda Sarsour, the head of the Arab American Association of New York, at what seems to be a very anti-Israel, or at least anti-Israeli sovereignty, rally. Sarsour was one of the main organizers of last month’s anti-Trump “Women’s” March in Washington, D.C. Odeh recently became one of the organizers for the worldwide women’s strike planned for next month.
The people of this country need to know liberals are putting the face of a terrorist at the forefront of their “cause.”
