Back in February, we told you the disturbing story of Rasmea Yousef-Odeh. Odeh, along with fellow Muslim sympathizer Linda Sarsour, helped to organize the Women’s March. But that was not her most terrifying endeavor. Planting bombs and murdering Israelis was. Now, although it took a while, Odeh is finally getting the justice she deserves.
Last Thursday, a federal judge in Detroit revoked Odeh’s citizenship and ordered her to be immediately deported. She was convicted in 1969 in connection with a pair of bombings that killed two civilians and injured fourteen others. Odeh was released as part of a prisoner exchange and moved to the U.S. shortly after.
However, like many illegals do, Odeh lied on her immigration paperwork stating that she had no criminal convictions. In 2013, that lie came back to haunt her and she was arrested on federal charges of immigration fraud. Two years later, Odeh was sentenced to serve eighteen months in prison. Unfortunately, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals stayed her sentence and she once again walked free.
In April of this year, Odeh pleaded guilty to immigration fraud in a plea-deal that would ensure she didn’t serve time in jail. Not surprisingly, Judge Gershwin Drain praised Odeh for her “years of service to Palestinian women in Chicago.” However, according to the Associated Press, he also told her that the immigration system “relies on honesty.”
During her time in the U.S., Odeh co-organized several controversial events and encouraged women to join the “militant feminist struggle.” In an article for The Guardian, Odeh outlined her vision for the Women’s March events:
“The idea is to mobilize women, including trans women, and all who support them in an international day of struggle – a day of striking, marching, blocking roads, bridges, and squares, abstaining from domestic, care and sex work, boycotting, calling out misogynistic politicians and companies, striking in educational institutions.”
After the hearing, Odeh spoke to reporters telling them she would never give-up. “We will continue to struggle for our cause,” she said. “We will liberate our Palestine.”
Good riddance. The last thing America needs right now, is one more radical leftist spreading hate.
