Rasmea Odeh and Angela Davis

Convicted Palestinian terrorist, and organizer of a Day Without a Woman, Rasmea Yousef Odeh, has agreed to leave the United States in exchange for no jail time for failing to disclose her conviction of her U.S. visa application.

Odeh plans to plead guilty to unlawful procurement of naturalization in a deal that will allow her to leave the US rather than face the possibility of an 18-month prison-sentence.

The Washington Times reports that Odeh is scheduled to undergo “another trial after a U.S. appeals court vacated her 2014 conviction, saying an expert witness should have been allowed to testify that she suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder from allegedly being tortured in prison when she gave false answers.”

A statement made on the websites Justice for Rasmea and the U.S. Palestinian Community Network read: “The prosecution team is now under the regime of racist Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and a new superseding indictment re-frames this as a case about ‘terrorism’ rather than immigration… There is the great likelihood that a jury would be prejudiced by hearing the Zionist assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Tukel call Rasmea a ‘terrorist’ and her supports ‘mobs and hordes,’ as he has done many times before.”

She is scheduled to appear in court April 25 in Detroit.
