Rasmieh Yousef Odeh was involved in planting bombs in a crowded Jerusalem supermarket and the British consulate decades ago. She was caught and sentenced to life in prison in Israel. But then she was released as one of 76 “Palestinian” prisoners exchanged for one Israeli soldier. She came to the U.S. in 1995 and never mentioned to immigration authorities that she was a convicted terrorist. Now she has been apprehended ….in Chicago for lying to immigration.
There’s more to the story, too. Obama.
Once again we see that these “moderate” Muslim groups that have infiltrated the hallowed halls of power in all three branches of government are led by …… terrorists and terror-tied operatives.
Daniel Greenfield reported last October that “Odeh works as an associate director at the Arab American Action Network, a Chicago-area nonprofit group that advocates for new immigrants and tries to combat anti-Muslim and anti-Arab prejudice, according to its director, Hatem Abudayyeh.” And “the Arab American Action Network has some ties to, who else, Barack Hussein Obama.”
So who knows how this plea will go. With Odeh’s friends in high places, expect her to get off lightly.
“Woman to plea in US to charges she hid Israeli terrorism conviction,” JTA, May 18, 2014:
A woman convicted in a 1969 terrorist bombing in Israel is set to enter a plea this week to charges that she concealed her past when immigrating to the United States.
Politico on May 14 reported that the Detroit federal judge presiding over the case of Rasmieh Yousef Odeh set a May 21 plea hearing in her case. It was not clear what her plea would be. According to Politico, her charges carry a sentence of up to 10 years in prison and deportation.
Odeh, who became a naturalized citizen in 2004, was arrested in October for failing to mention her conviction in her immigration papers.
Israel jailed Odeh for life for her involvement in a number of Jerusalem bombings in 1969, including one at a supermarket that killed two Hebrew University students, Leon Kanner and Eddie Joffe.
She was released in a prisoner exchange with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine in 1980, and immigrated to the United States from Jordan in 1995.
