Linda Sarsour’s terrorist pal was just stripped of citizenship, ordered deported and banned from US

If your friends say a lot about who you are, Americans may want to pay closer attention to Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour.

Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, an “associate” of Sarsour’s, had her U.S. citizenship stripped and will be deported after lying about being a convicted terrorist and murderer, The Daily Caller reported.

Odeh was arrested nine years after gaining citizenship in 2004 for not disclosing a conviction in Israel for her involvement in two bombings and her association with the designated terrorist organization Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine on her visa application.

One of the bombings was at a supermarket and killed two people. Odeh confessed to the bombings — she later recanted, claiming it was procured under torture — and was sentenced to life imprisonment, but was freed in 1979 as part of a prisoner exchange.

Sarsour, a sharia law supporting activist who helped organize the feminist Women’s March on Washington, staunchly defends Odeh and appeared alongside her at a left-wing event in Chicago earlier this year, saying she felt “honored and privileged to be here in this space, and honored to be on this stage with [Odeh].”

Homeland Security Investigations special agent Steve Francis said the action against Odeh is a message to others.

“Today’s court action clears the way for this defendant’s removal from the United States and should serve as an unequivocal message that the U.S. will never be a haven for those seeking to distance themselves from their past atrocities,” Francis said, according to The Daily Caller.

Sarsour, who recently declared “jihad” against President Donald Trump and has urged Muslims to resist assimilation, took to social media on several occasions to advocate on Odeh’s behalf, as seen here:
