On August 12, 2017, a farewell gala event honoring Rasmea Odeh was held in Chicago by a coalition of anti-Israel groups, and attended by several hundred people.
This coming Thursday, August 17, 2017, Rasmea will be sentenced in federal court in Detroit after a guilty plea to immigration fraud. By her plea agreement, Rasmea will be deported and will lose her U.S. citizenship, but will not serve any further jail time.
Rasmea’s immigration plea resulted from her lies on immigration and naturalization forms in which she concealed a prior conviction and prison term for a 1969 supermarket bombing in Jerusalem that killed two Hebrew University students, Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner. Rasmea also concealed her conviction for the attempted bombing of the British Consulate that same year.
Rasmea and her supporters have thrown up phony defense after defense to both the underlying bombing and the immigration charges. Those defenses have been methodically debunked in numerous prior posts. …
Rasmea has become a hero of the anti-Israel movement in the U.S., particularly with groups such as Jewish Voice for Peace, as documented in our post, Jewish Voice for Peace’s long embrace of convicted terrorist Rasmea Odeh.
