One of the organisers behind the next women’s march against US President Donald Trump has been revealed as a Palestinian terrorist who took part in two deadly bombings in Israel.
According to Daily Express, Rasmea Yousef Odeh was convicted in 1970 for her role in the two terror attacks, one of which killed two students while they were out doing their food shopping.
After spending ten years behind bars, she then became a US citizen and even took up a job working as a navigator for Obamacare.
But in 2014, the activist was convicted for immigration fraud after it was revealed she failed to declare her role in the 1969 attacks on citizenship papers.
Now Odeh has been discovered to be the brains behind the Day Without A Woman protest due to go ahead on March 8.
Earlier this month eight women – including Odeh – penned a feminist manifesto, published in the Guardian, which called for a “new wave of militant feminist struggle.”
According to the comment piece, women should spend their day “blocking roads, bridges, and squares, abstaining from domestic, care and sex work” and “boycotting” businesses that support Donald Trump.
It read: “In our view, it is not enough to oppose Trump and his aggressively misogynistic, homophobic, transphobic and racist policies.
“We also need to target the ongoing neoliberal attack on social provision and labor rights.
“While Trump’s blatant misogyny was the immediate trigger for the huge response on 21 January, the attack on women (and all working people) long predates his administration.”
Odeh, who also goes by the names Rasmieh Steve and Rasmieh Joseph Steve, is allegedly a former PFLP terrorist who was sentenced to life in prison in Israel for her involvement in two terrorist bombings in Jerusalem in 1969.
The first attack in a crowded SuperSol supermarket killed two people and injured nine others, while four days later she was accused of bombing and damaging the British Consulate.
But the terrorist only spent ten years in prison before being released in a prisoner exchange in 1980 and emigrating to the US, where she now faces a retrial over her immigration fraud conviction after she claimed she was suffering from PTSD at the time she filled out the application.
She has also claimed she was sexually assaulted and tortured while in prison in Israel, and was coerced into confessing.
Others behind the lengthy piece include Angela Davis, a university professor who is also known as being a long-time supporter of the Black Panthers.
In 1972, she was acquitted following a trial after three guns she bought were used in a courtroom shootout that led to the death of a judge.
While a third author Tithi Bhattacharya previously praised Maoism in an essay, in which she noted supporters are “on the terrorist list of the US State Department, Canada, and the European Union,” which she called an indication that “Maoists are back in the news and by all accounts they are fighting against all the right people.”
Millions of people across the globe attended the first International Women’s March on January 21.
