Rasmea Yousef Odeh, a Women’s March Organizer was arrested and convicted after it emerged that she had lied about being a terrorist to procure naturalization papers, and had been living somewhat unlawfully in the United States for 20 years, has now agreed to be deported, rather than face jail time.
Odeh was convicted in Israel for the bombing of a supermarket 1969 that killed two Hebrew students.
Her leftist supporters claim she will not get a fair trial in the United States, and actually said that the courts are run by zionists, so Odeh will be mistreated. Despite being a known terrorist.
The Daily Mail has more:
One of the organizers of ‘the next women’s march’ has agreed to be deported from America in exchange for no jail time because she lied about having been convicted of terrorism, it has emerged.
Rasmea Yousef Odeh is a resident of Chicago, and has lived in the US for about 20 years, and plans to plead guilty to unlawful procurement of naturalization in a deal that will allow her to leave the United States and avoid a possible 18-month prison sentence, reported the Washington Times.
She is scheduled to undergo another trial after a US appeals court vacated her 2014 conviction due to false answers given by an expert witness who was suffering from PTSD.
In 1969 the Palestinian activist was convicted in the bombing of a supermarket in Israel that killed two Hebrew University students.
Her supporters believe it will be impossible for her to expect a fair trial while in the Untied States.
‘The prosecution team is now under the regime of racist Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and a new superseding indictment re-frames this as a case about “terrorism” rather than immigration,’ the Justice for Rasmea and US Palestinian Community Networks said in a statement on Thursday.
‘There is the great likelihood that a jury would be prejudiced by hearing the zionist Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Tukel call Rasmea a ‘terrorist’ and her supporters ‘mobs and hordes,’ as he has done many times before,’ the post continued.
After the letter was published, it was revealed by the New York Post that Odeh is a convicted terrorist, who in February 1969 was involved in planting two bombs in an Israeli supermarket and a third at the British Consulate in Israel.
One of the bombs detonated in the busy SuperSol supermarket on February 21, killing two young men – Leon Kanner, 21, and Eddie Joffe, 22 – who had stopped in to pick up groceries for a trip.
Nine others were injured in the explosion. The second supermarket bomb was found and defused by police. At the same time a bomb planted at the British Consulate failed to go off.
