“We urge all to join us on 14 August in NYC to show our love and support for Rasmea Odeh before her sentencing in federal court three days later in Detroit. This will be her last court appearance and Rasmea is planning to make a statement.
Rally to support Rasmea Odeh Hosted by Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network
The plea agreement that has already been reached states that Rasmea will not get additional jail time – but she will have to leave the U.S. This rally will express our support for a legendary former political prisoner and beloved community leader.

BUT, the New-JDL had a counter-demonstration to “Honor the Victims NOT the Killer, Rasmea Odeh”.
“The public must be made aware that she is a convicted murderer and not a victim. The public must be made aware that Edward and Leon are the victims. Please join us and help fight the lies of radical Islamics and their supporters.” [Face Book]
The JDL gathered “at the steps in the southern plaza” before the Samidoun arrived, creating a dilemma of sorts for the anti-Zionists. Now they couldn’t display their signs on the steps as planned.
A decision was finally made to walk in a circle (they love going round and round) and that they did while chanting “Racists go Home”.

Eventually, some of the younger terrorist-lovers did the predictable, standing in front of the JDL signs.Then some of the younger JDL’s became more vocal as they two sides edged closer and closer finally coming nose to nose just as the NYPD arrived.
The JDL counter-protest was VERY successful proving it does NOT take an army to weaken the resolve of these radicals – even though that may be brief – it was FUN to watch their confusion. They obviously expected only SUPPORT for their murderous darling, Rasmea Odeh.
Interestingly, the NYPD officers seemed almost bemused as they placed barricade after barricade between the two groups, building a Wall to keep the PEACE.
Maybe there’s something to be said for walls, PEACE and safety from the violent animus of WAR-mongers like Samidoun and Hamas.
Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas share certain goals and values. To each, it is not a question of whether a peaceful settlement to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is possible. It never will be acceptable. What is acceptable is violence against civilians. [investigative project]
SO, Goodbye and Good Riddance to Rasmieh Odeh
The creation of a state of terror, instability and panic in the souls of the Zionists” is a goal spelled out in the Islamic Jihad’s internal bylaws […] Hamas unveiled an updated charter this year […] it remains committed to never recognizing Israel’s right to exist and demands “the full and complete liberation of Palestine : “from the river to the sea”.
In other words, no peace while Israel exists.
Rasmieh Odeh bombed that grocery store before either group was created [Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad] so America has lost a pioneer in Palestinian terrorism. Take note of who grieves for that loss more than the loss of life she caused. [investigative project]

Norway Demands Palestinians Repay Funds and U.S. Congress Cheers. No moneys can be used to HONOR KILLERS like Terrorist and Murderess, Dalal Mughrabi
A total of 38 Israelis, including 13 children, were killed and 72 were wounded by Dalal Mughrabi [eight other militants died as well as Mughrabi]
Leaked photos of Dalal Mughrabi’s remains in a Palestinan propaganda leaflet which purports to show former PM Ehud Barak taking a suicide belt off of Mughrabi.
Members of the US Congress are hailing Norway’s recent actions and calling for Washington to take similar steps.
Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) recently introduced an amendment to an appropriations bill that would have prohibited US funds from being used by the PA to publicly honor terrorists. The amendment was disqualified by the House Rules Committee on a technicality, but Sarah Stern — the president of the Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) — said that she and her colleagues will be working with members of Congress to reintroduce a similar amendment “at the earliest opportunity.” [Pamela Geller, Jewish Breaking News]
