Many conservative outlets ran a story about Rasmea Odeh, and how she killed two Jewish students while they shopped for groceries in 1969. She was also convicted and put in jail when she immigrated here, allegedly lying about her history to gain citizenship. She appealed her case and blamed the faulty memory on PTSD.
It’s pathetic when the woman’s movement is reduced to defending such controversial figureheads.
Rasmea Odeh was arrested and will be stripped of her U.S citizenship and forced to leave the country and return to Jordan after failing to disclose to immigration authorities that she had been imprisoned in Israel for committing two terror attacks.
As part of her plea bargain, however, Odeh won’t have to spend time in U.S prison or detention, according to a statement on Thursday by the Rasmea Defense Committee.
The terrorist-turned-activist rose to prominence in the US following her involvement with the Women’s March and another recent high-profile protest, “A Day Without A Woman”. In a letter in The Guardian that she co-authored with other activists, Odeh urged women worldwide to join in a “new wave of militant feminist struggle.”
According to the New York Post, Odeh had a secret: she was convicted for her role in two terrorist attacks in Israel, including an attack on an Israeli supermarket in 1969 that killed two students shopping for groceries. She was released from prison in 1980 following a prisoner exchange.
