The convicted terrorist who was at the helm of the “Day Without A Woman” protest is fleeing the United States to avoid prison, which her team claims in inevitable under A.G. Jeff Sessions.
Rasmea Yousef Odeh, who was a co-organizer of the strike, won an appeal of her conviction of immigration fraud. But, before her new trial was to begin in May, Odeh took a plea deal accepting deportation, according to the Rasmea Defense Committee.
“Under this current, racist political climate, and facing 18 months or more of imprisonment, as well as the possibility of indefinite detention by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Rasmea has made the difficult decision to accept a plea agreement,” a statement from the group, released Thursday, read.

“She will plead guilty to Unlawful Procurement of Naturalization, lose her U.S. citizenship, and be forced to leave the country, but will exit the U.S. without having to serve any more time in prison or ICE detention, a victory, considering that the government had earlier fought for a sentence of 5-7 years.,” it added.
Odeh was sentenced to 18 months in prison by a federal judge in Detroit after being convicted of lying on her visa and citizenship forms about her previous terrorism conventions and associations with terrorist groups, the Daily Caller reported.
She was convicted in Israel in 1970 as being a part of two bombings, one at the British consulate and another at a supermarket that killed two Jewish students.
Odeh was let out of prison in 1980 as part of a prisoner exchange and made her way to the United States in the 1990s. Odeh was granted citizenship in 2004, the Caller reported.
She has continued to deny her involvement in the bombings, carried out by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and alleged she was tortured and sexually assaulted by Israeli police.
Her team insisted she had to take the deal because Attorney general Jeff Sessions is a “racist.”
…the prospects for a fair trial are slimmer than ever. The prosecution team is now under the regime of racist Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and a new superseding indictment re-frames this as a case about “terrorism” rather than immigration. There is the great likelihood that a jury would be prejudiced by hearing the zionist Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Tukel call Rasmea a “terrorist” and her supporters “mobs and hordes,” as he has done many times before. As a Palestinian who has dedicated her life to the cause of liberation, it is impossible for Rasmea to expect a fair trial in U.S. courts.
We just keep winning.
