‘A Day Without A Woman’ Organizer Was A Murderous Palestinian Terrorist

Guess who is one of the organizers of the next Women’s March, scheduled for March 8, which is a worldwide general strike billed as “A Day Without A Woman?”

A murderous Palestinian woman who bombed a supermarket in Jerusalem in 1969, killing two Hebrew university students, Leon Kanner, 21, and Edward Joffe, 22, who were grocery shopping, that’s who. Nine other people were injured in the explosion.

Rasmea Odeh, who is one of the organizers of “A Day Without A Woman,” spent ten years in prison, then lied to become a U.S. citizen in 2004. On Nov. 10, 2014, a federal jury in Detroit pronounced her guilty for illegally procuring naturalization by falsely answering questions as to whether she “EVER” had been convicted or imprisoned.

After she was convicted of immigration fraud three years ago, Odeh got a new trial claiming PTSD caused her to lie. In addition, she is an alleged former member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a designated terrorist group, and was convicted for her role in the bombing of a British consulate.

Here’s how a website defending her limns her:

Rasmea is a community icon who overcame vicious torture by Israeli authorities while imprisoned in Palestine in the 1970s, and an example for the millions of Palestinians who have not given up organizing for their rights of liberation, equality, and return.

Yet an observer from the International Red Cross was present for her entire six-month Israeli trial, and stated afterward that the Israeli military court “had given the accused every chance of defending themselves, and the trial was – in his opinion – a fair trial.”

If there was any doubt remaining as to how much the Left hates Israel, it has certainly been shredded by their embrace of a murderous terrorist.
