In fairness, it’s not like United Airlines bombed a supermarket killing two students. Right? Right?
Rasmea Odeh was convicted of a 1969 bombing of a supermarket in Jerusalem that killed two Hebrew University students, Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner. She also was convicted in the attempted bombing of the British Consulate.
After her 1979 release in a prisoner exchange for an Israeli soldier captured in Lebanon, Rasmea made her way to the U.S. in the mid-1990s. She lied on her visa and naturalization applications, among other ways, by falsely denying ever having been convicted or imprisoned, or being a member of a terrorist group (in her case, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine).
On April 25, 2017, Rasmea is scheduled to plead guilty to immigration fraud. She will be deported and have her U.S. citizenship revoked.
As we have documented many times, Rasmea has injected herself into other movements in order to push anti-Israel activism, such as Black Lives Matters. Rasmea was one of the organizers of the March 8 “International Women’s Strike.”
I laughed, in a morbid way, when I saw someone tweet that Rasmea was helping lead the anti-United Airlines protests at Chicago O’Hare, after passenger David Dao was dragged off a plane.
Here’s some video:
I realize United Airlines is the object of everyone’s hate right now.
But, “in fairness,” it’s not like United Airlines blew up a supermarket killing two students.
