Rasmea Yousef Odeh, the organizer of the “women’s march” against President Trump on March 8, is a poster child for terrorism and our failed vetting policies when it comes to potential Islamic terrorists.
Odeh is a Palestinian and former member of the terrorist Palestine Liberation Organization headed by Yasser Arafat. She was convicted in Israel in 1970 of taking part in two terrorist bombings. One of those bombings killed two students who were grocery shopping. She spent 10 years in prison for her crimes.
In 2004, she lied about her past to become an American citizen. She was convicted in 2014 of immigration fraud for her lies, but she has won a new trial set for the spring. She worked as an Obamacare “navigator” and was an “Arab community organizer” in Chicago. If convicted, she will be stripped of her American citizenship and deported to Jordan.
Someone in the Bush Administration failed to do any accurate vetting of Odeh and she’s strutting around free organizing anti-Trump hate marches. What else is she doing that could result in the deaths of Americans?
Odeh, of course, is a Sunni Muslim as was PLO terrorist leader Yasser Arafat. In fact, 70% of the terrorist attacks around the world are committed by Sunnis.
In 2012, the National Counterterrorism Center reported that Sunni terrorists committed 70% of the 12,533 terrorist murders in 2011.
Obama had a soft spot in his dark heart for Sunnis and imported them into the United States in droves. In FY2016, for example, 97% of the Syrian refugees imported into America were Sunnis, while Christian Syrians amounted to less than half a percent.
While Obama was inviting potential killers into our country, President Trump has a far different idea. He wants to use extreme vetting to keep Muslim terrorists out of America.
He picked seven Muslim nations as targets of his vetting efforts because they are hotbeds of terrorism and are likely to want to infiltrate killers into our nation. They are: Libya (Sunni), Iran (Shia), Iraq (Sunni/Shia), Somalia (Sunni), Sudan (Sunni), Syria (Sunni) and Yemen (Sunni/Shia). Notice a trend? Most of these nations and failed states are Sunni.
President Trump and his national security team are doing the right thing by trying to stop the flow of potential terrorists into America. He should be praised, not ridiculed for this effort to protect us. Pray for him and his team. They are facing an army of haters – many of them will be out in force on March 8 to attack him. And, Sunni Muslim PLO terrorist Rasmea Odeh will lead them.
