Rasmieh Yousef Odeh: Islamic Terrorist Chick Got U.S. Citizenship bc Homeland Security Didn’t Google
Rasmieh Yousef Odeh is a strong, malodorous whiff of “comprehensive immigration reform” a/k/a amnesty and the types of people with terrorist backgrounds who will get U.S. citizenship under it.
Odeh is an Islamic terrorist who tried to blow up the British Consulate in Jerusalem in 1969. A Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terrorist, she is also a naturalized U.S. citizen, whose terrorist background–even though she was convicted in Israel–our trusty INS background screeners didn’t catch. And they gave her a golden ticket into the U.S. That part of the INS now reconstituted as U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) now does even less of a background check on those seeking Green Cards and U.S. citizenship, today. USCIS will be in charge of doing the quickie/rubber stamp background checks if immigration amnesty is passed. They missed Odeh’s terrorist past because they didn’t do even a basic Google search. It’s laughable.
And if they didn’t catch Ms. Odeh’s conviction for Islamic terrorism in 1995 when she was allowed into the country–and again in 2004 when her citizenship was rubber-stamped, you can bet that they will not catch other Islamic terrorists like her if and when immigration amnesty is enacted. Odeh’s conviction in Israeli courts was missed by U.S. background checkers at least twice (and many other times when she failed to disclose it on various forms and applications). Her terrorist group, the PFLP, murdered Israeli Tourism Minister Rechavam Ze’evi.
A naturalized United States citizen who was convicted in Israel for participating in a terrorist bombing was charged with immigration fraud, [it was] announced today. . . .
[Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)] Special agents arrested Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, 66, at a Chicago-area residence after the unsealing of an indictment filed in federal court in Detroit. The indictment charges procurement of citizenship unlawfully. The indictment alleges that Odeh was convicted in Israel for her role in the 1969 bombings of a supermarket and the British Consulate in Jerusalem, which were carried out on behalf of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a designated terrorist organization.
According to the indictment, Odeh and others placed multiple bombs at the British Consulate and in a supermarket. One of the bombs placed at the supermarket detonated, killing two and injuring others. A bomb placed at the Consulate caused structural damage to the facility. Odeh was sentenced by Israeli military authorities to life imprisonment but was released after 10 years as part of a prisoner exchange, and she then returned to the West Bank.
The indictment alleges that in 1995, she immigrated to the United States and naturalized as a citizen in 2004. In her immigration documents filed in the United States, the indictment alleges, Odeh omitted her arrest, conviction, and imprisonment overseas, which were material facts for the United States government in determining whether to grant her citizenship. . . . If convicted of the charge, Odeh will be stripped of her United States citizenship. She also faces a maximum sentence of 10 years for naturalization fraud.
Islamic terrorists are not stupid. Of course, they omit their activities in Islamic terrorism when they apply for U.S. citizenship.
It’s our country’s job to weed them out. That Odeh’s involvement in and conviction and prison time for a terrorist attack in Israel was missed by the INS and then by Homeland Security’s USCIS should be a giant hint: America cannot handle immigration amnesty.
Heck, we can’t even handle those terrorists who allegedly come here legally and go through the process.
By the way, has anyone at Homeland Security (other than the ICE agents who eventually caught her – AFTER she got citizenship) ever heard of Google or Facebook? A quick Facebook search of this terror chick’s name turned this up:
Buthina Canaan Khoury tackles a difficult subject in her first feature Documentary, Women in Struggle. The film is about four Palestinian women imprisoned in Israeli jails for various offences, ranging from the serious (providing safe houses for members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, surveying targets and planting bombs), to the less serious . . . . Most of the film centers on the lives of three middle-aged women: Aysha Odeh and her sister Rasmieh Odeh, who were both sentenced to life in prison but spent ten years in detention . . . . These women joined the resistance in the 1960s and 70s, after Israel occupied what remained of Palestine in the June 1967 war.
That’s from a 2005 review of a Palestinian propaganda “documentary” (more like, fake-umentary). Why did it take until 2013 to figure out she omitted this info from her citizenship application and indict this beastess?
There’s also this from 2004 and 2005:
Again, Dear Homeland Security:
