March 8 is being organized as “A Day Without A Woman,” and promoted by the people behind the highly-organized Women’s March.

The March 8 protest asks women not to work and to otherwise go on strike.

It was conceived by a small group of radicals, including convicted terrorist murderer Rasmea Odeh.

Rasmea Odeh is rising to prominence in radical circles in the U.S.

In addition to injecting her anti-Israel activism into Black Lives Matter protests, which we previously covered, Rasmea is part of a group organizing a planned “national strike” of women in March 2017, to protest Donald Trump.

The prosecution of Rasmea Odeh started out quite simply.

Rasmea signed a naturalization form that denies she “EVER” (bold and CAPS in original) was convicted or imprisoned. That was a lie. Rasmea was convicted in 1970 in Israel of the 1969 bombing of a supermarket in Jerusalem in which two students were...
