Rasmieh Odeh Tag

You may recall our coverage of the controversy surrounding Reem's Bakery in Oakland, California. Reem's was best known for the huge wall mural of Rasmea Odeh, the convicted terrorist murderer and immigration fraudster. For a detailed history of Odeh's crimes, including the murder of Israeli students Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner in a supermarket bombing, see my post The Lies of Rasmea Odeh and Her Supporters Exposed.

Rasmea Odeh is a terrorist who not only was convicted of killing two Israeli students, she lied to get into the U.S. and become a U.S. citizen. Odeh was convicted of immigration fraud and deported in September 2017. Now she's making a comeback on campuses, glorified by groups like Students for Justice in Palestine, and just recently at UC-Berkeley, where anti-Israel activists ripped up a photo of her victims.

An appeals court in Berlin has ordered the deportation of the convicted Palestinian terrorist, Rasmea Odeh. The Higher Regional Court was responding to an appeal filed by Odeh's lawyer, challenging the earlier deportation order issued by Berlin State's Home Affairs Department, or Innensenat, ordering her to leave the country. That deportation was promptly carried out. Odeh is out of Germany.

On February 21, 1969, a bomb planted by Rasmea Odeh and her co-conspirators from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine exploded in the SuperSol supermarket in Jerusalem, killing Hebrew University students Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner. A second explosive, timed to explode when first-responders arrived, was defused before it exploded.

We previously reported how Food & Wine magazine honored Reem's Oakland restaurant despite Reem's glorifying convicted terrorist murderer Rasmea Odeh with a large wall mural in a prominent place in the restaurant. Please see the prior post for background on Rasmea's murder of two Hebrew University students in an 1969 supermarket bombing in Jerusalem, her conviction for immigration fraud and deportation from the U.S. in 2017, and how the owner of Reem's, Reem Assil, has tried to shut down protests outside the restaurant, Food & Wine mag honors Reem’s Oakland restaurant, ignores wall-sized mural of terrorist.

Food & Wine magazine recently released its Restaurants of the Year 2018. The article, by F&W Restaurant Editor Jordanna Rothman, includes Reem's of Oakland, CA. In the introduction to the article, Rothman notes: "At Reem’s in Oakland, California, I was moved by Reem Assil, a Syrian and Palestinian chef who uses food to cultivate understanding for the Arab experience in America." The review of Reem's goes far beyond the menu or food preparation, and focuses heavily on the atmosphere at the restaurant. The review states, in part (emphasis added):

Reem’s bakery in Oakland, CA, prominently displays a full-wall mural of Rasmea Odeh, who recently was deported for immigration fraud. Rasmea is the former military member of the terrorist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine who was convicted in Israel in 1970 of the 1969 supermarket bombing that killed two Hebrew University students, Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner. She also was convicted of the attempted bombing of the British Consulate. Rasmea and her supporters have concocted a phony claim that Rasmea only was convicted because of a false confession extracted after 25 days of sexual torture.

The story of Rasmea Odeh is the story of a terrorist and confirmed liar. We've documented both aspects of her life exhaustively. She was a military member of the terrorist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Yet she claims she was just a political activist. Rasmea participated in at least two bombings in 1969, of a supermarket in Jerusalem that killed two students and the attempted bombing of the British consulate.

Today was the day. Convicted terrorist murderer and immigration fraudster Rasmea Odeh's last day on U.S. soil. She's been stripped of her citizenship and put on a plane out of O'Hare for Jordan, where she'll join convicted terrorist murderer Ahlam Tamimi, the mastermind of the Sbarro Pizzeria Massacre.

Rasmea Odeh, the convicted killer of two Israeli students in a 1969 bombing, was convicted in federal court in Detroit of immigration fraud. As part of her plea deal, Rasmea was to be deported and stripped of her U.S. citizenship. Rasmea's supporters portray Rasmea as the victim in this saga, but they are fools or liars, and in some cases both. Virtually every talking point in support of Rasmea has been thoroughly refuted, including the demonstrably false claim that Rasmea was convicted of the bombing only because she falsely confessed after 25 days of sexual torture. For background on the lies of Rasmea and her supporters, see our posts:

Reem's bakery in Oakland, CA, has been a center of controversy because of the full-wall mural of Rasmea Odeh. Rasmea is the former military member of the terrorist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine who was convicted in Israel in 1970 of the 1969 supermarket bombing that killed two Hebrew University students, Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner. She also was convicted of the attempted bombing of the British Consulate. Rasmea and her supporters have concocted a phony claim that Rasmea only was convicted because of a false confession extracted after 25 days of sexual torture. That claim is demonstrably false, yet the claim is repeated non-stop to this day, as I discuss in The Lies of Rasmea Odeh and Her Supporters Exposed.

Rasmea Odeh is the former military member of the terrorist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine who was convicted in Israel in 1970 of the 1969 supermarket bombing that killed two Hebrew University students, Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner. She also was convicted of the attempted bombing of the British Consulate. Rasmea lied on her immigration and naturalization applications to come to the U.S., denying that she ever had been convicted or imprisoned, or was a member of any terrorist group. On August 17, 2017, Rasmea was sentenced for immigration fraud to deportation and to be stripped of U.S. citizenship, as detailed in my post, Convicted Terrorist Rasmea Odeh Sentenced to Deportation, Loss of Citizenship.

The protest in Charlottesville, VA, had this week filled with news of people all of a sudden wanting to tear down Confederate statues, which evolved to changing names and even demands targeting our founders.

Rasmea Odeh appeared in federal court in Detroit this afternoon for sentencing on immigration fraud charges. As expected and agreed to in her plea agreement, the Court sentenced Rasmea to deportation and loss of U.S. citizenship. She will serve no further jail time beyond the 33 days already served prior to being released on bail, and is fined $1000.  It is not clear when she will be deported, but is now under ICE supervision (but was not taken into custody, per order of the Judge).
