Despite spending 10 years in prison for terrorism in Israel, she acquired U.S citizenship in 2004 by withholding information about her past. She later claimed that post-traumatic stress disorder caused her to lie on her application for citizenship.
A convicted Palestinian terrorist and a key figure of the recent Women’s March will be deported from the United States after accepting a plea bargain that allows her to escape a prison sentence.
Rasmea Odeh will be stripped of her U.S citizenship and forced to leave the country and return to Jordan after failing to disclose to immigration authorities that she had been imprisoned in Israel for committing two terror attacks.
As part of her plea bargain, however, Odeh won’t have to spend time in U.S prison or detention, according to a statement on Thursday by the Rasmea Defense Committee.
The terrorist-turned-activist rose to prominence in the US following her involvement with the Women’s March and another recent high-profiel protest, “A Day Without A Woman”. In a letter in The Guardian that she co-authored with other activists, Odeh urged women worldwide to join in a “new wave of militant feminist struggle.”
But according to the New York Post, Odeh had a secret: she was convicted for her role in two terrorist attacks in Israel, including an attack on an Israeli supermarket in 1969 that killed two students shopping for groceries. She was released from prison in 1980 following a prisoner exchange

"As part of her 'plea bargain'?? Did I read that right?
Here we have a person, stripped of their citizenship, knows they shouldn't be here ... and she gets to make deals??
How 'bout this deal: You get tied up to that pole over there, and that dude with the flail ... yeah, that's the one ... he'll listen to your pleas.
She didn't lead anything. She co-wrote an article in The Guardian about the direction she hopes the women's marches go. A bunch of snowflakes that can't handle women marching then tied her to the march as an organizer.
Odeh successfully appealed that conviction, however, and was granted a new trial, set for May 2017. Meanwhile, she remained free on bail and was listed as an organizer of the 8 March 2017 Day Without a Woman strike.
Rasmea Yousef Odeh, a 69-year-old Palestinian-American activist and one of the organizers of “A Day Without a Woman,” a worldwide strike planned for International Women’s Day on 8 March 2017, was convicted some 47 years ago of participating in a deadly terrorist bombing, multiple news reports and court documents confirm.

Those women's march folks really should've run some background checks on their speakers.
A collection of murderers, Islamic theocrats and terrorists. Not a great bunch.
Oh well, have fun in Jordan. Don't go joining that "moderate opposition" across the border in Syria.

You're talking about the far left, those idiots cry wolf all the time about any damn thing.
I am from the left and we moderates are appalled that the public thinks they speak for the us, they don't. The far right and the far left have hijacked both parties and are a disgrace to them both.
