chicago.suntimes.com -- Odeh was a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, designated by the U.S., Canada, and the EU as a terrorist group. In 1970, Odeh was convicted in Israel for a 1969 bombing at a Jerusalem supermarket that killed two Hebrew University students, Leon Kanner, 21 and Edward Joffe, 22. Odeh’s sentence was life in prison, but she was released in a 1995 prisoner exchange.
After being released from Israeli prison, Odeh immigrated to the U.S.
Last November, a federal jury in Detroit found her guilty of lying on her naturalization papers by answering “no” when asked if she had “ever” been charged or convicted of a crime.
