Germany to Deport Convicted Palestinian Terrorist, Cancels Anti-Israel Event

German authorities canceled an anti-Israel event in Berlin this weekend that featured a speech from convicted Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh.

The event was called “Palestinian Women in the Liberation Struggle” and was set to promote boycotts, sanctions, and divestments against the Jewish state.

Berlin authorities shut down the event after facing international backlash over Odeh’s attendance. The Israeli Embassy in Germany coordinated with German authorities cancel the event and have Odeh deported.

Odeh was a key member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and masterminded a deadly bombing attack on a Jewish grocery store in Israel in 1969. The terror attack killed two Hebrew University students and injured several others.

She was tried and convicted in Israeli courts, but was released in 1979 in a prisoner exchange deal with the United States. She was deported from the US back to her home country of Jordan in 2017 after US immigration authorities discovered that she lied about her criminal past.
