Palestinian terrorist jailed in U.S. for lying about conviction in Israel

(JNS.org) A Palestinian terrorist who served time in an Israeli jail for a 1969 supermarket bombing has now been sentenced to 18 months in prison by a Detroit-based U.S. federal court on immigration fraud charges. Following her release from prison, 67-year-old Rasmieh Yousef Odeh will face mandatory deportation. Last November, Odeh was convicted of immigration fraud for failing to disclose to U.S. authorities a past conviction in Israel for the supermarket bombing, which killed two people. Odeh immigrated to the U.S. in 1995. While in America, she had worked as the associate director of the Arab American Action Network, a community center in Chicago. Besides the supermarket bombing, she was convicted – along with terrorists from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – for placing a bomb at the British Consulate in Jerusalem.
