On February 21, 1969 a bomb exploded in a crowded Jerusalem supermarket filled with “mostly women and children” doing their pre-Sabbath shopping, killing Hebrew University students Leon Kaner (21) and Edward Jaffe (22). This was followed four days later by a foiled attempt to blow up the British Consulate. Both incidents were perpetrated by the same terror organization, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
Rasmea Yousef Odeh was convicted by an Israeli court and sentenced to life in prison for her involvement in both acts of terror. She was released 10 years later in a prisoner swap, making her way to Jordan and eventually the United States in 1995.
But according to the U.S. government, Odeh committed immigration fraud in 2004 when she lied in her application for citizenship, answering “no” when asked if she was ever charged, convicted or imprisoned, first when she applied to enter the U.S. from Jordan in 1995 and then when she pursued U.S. citizenship, nine years later.
