Convicted Palestinian Terrorist Rasmea Odeh Leaves US on Deportation Flight
JNS.org – Convicted Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh, 70, was deported on Tuesday from Chicago to her native Jordan after having her US citizenship revoked by a federal court in August.
Supporters of the Palestinian terrorist planned to hold a send-off rally at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport before her flight to Amman.
Earlier this year, Odeh pleaded guilty to lying to immigration authorities about her criminal record when she applied for American citizenship in 2004. Specifically, Odeh failed to disclose her conviction and imprisonment in Israel for her role in a 1969 Jerusalem bombing that killed two Hebrew University students.
Odeh has previously confessed to planting the bomb in the Jerusalem terror attack, but later claimed her confession was made under duress. In 1970, she was sentenced to life in prison by an Israeli court and served 10 years of her sentence before being released early in a prisoner exchange deal.
