Rasmieh Yousef Odeh leaving federal court last October.

According to the FBI, special agents arrested Rasmieh Yousef Odeh at a Chicago-area residence after the unsealing of an indictment filed in federal court in Detroit. The indictment charges procurement of citizenship unlawfully. The indictment alleges that Odeh was convicted in Israel for her role in the 1969 bombings of a supermarket and the British Consulate in Jerusalem, which were carried out on behalf of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a designated terrorist organization.

A bomb the Jordan-born Odeh hid in a candy box on a shelf killed two Hebrew University students, Leon Kanner and Eddie Joffe, and injured 10 others.


Now the National Review reported that Odeh had worked as an Obamacare Counselor in Illinois.

According to the Review, the Illinois Department of Insurance eventually, and with no fanfare at all, revoked Odeh’s certification as a Navigator In-Person Counselor last November 24, explaining in a disciplinary report that the decision was “based on an investigation which revealed that she had been convicted in Israel for her role in the bombings of a supermarket and the British Consulate in Jerusalem and failed to reveal the conviction on her application.”

According to the director of insurance revocation letter, the Department of Insurance found out about Odeh’s history after the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Eastern District of Michigan publicized her convictions.

The indictment alleges that in 1995, Odeh immigrated to the United States and naturalized as a citizen in 2004. In her immigration documents filed in the United States, Odeh omitted her arrest, conviction, and imprisonment overseas, which were material facts for the United States government in determining whether to grant her citizenship.

“The United States will never be a safe haven for individuals seeking to distance themselves from their pasts,” said William Hayes, acting special agent in charge for HSI Detroit. “When individuals lie on immigration documents, the system is severely undermined and the security of our nation is put at risk.”

If convicted of the charge, Odeh will be stripped of her United States citizenship. She also faces a maximum sentence of 10 years for naturalization fraud.

Incidentally, Odeh reached the new world after serving 10 years in Israeli jail, but then, inevitably, came her early release as part of a prisoner exchange.

Perhaps in the future Israel should send captured Arab terrorists directly to America, to work for Obamacare. It would save a lot of red tape.



  1. not just health care education religon punishment work on disipine how to work in mass force loyalty i think you have some thing there let them run airport security all the things we jews have been telling them for years we did’nt get stock with this plege just yesterday were talking a little more than a houndred years and yet we stand at the same end of the negosiateing table

  2. Yeah, forcing the public to pay for healthcare is ridiculous. Not to mention, it’s unconstitutional because we have freedom of religion. I mean — if it’s against your religious beliefs to accept healthcare, then how can the government enforce mandatory heath insurance?

  3. nice to know her job meant she had access to all the personal information and financial information of americans. the whole world is drowning in this sea of scum and we're going down for the third time. o. and make sure this killer of innocents gets all her "rights". we wouldn't want to deprive any of these things of their "rights".

  4. Citizenship was obtained in 2004 by lying. She obtained a job and it sounds like with the State of Illinois administrating their exchange of the National INsurance. The writer is wrongly trying to tie terrorism with Obamacare. A very crude Republican strategy to taint an excellent health cae program that is giving health care to millions who would not have it otherwise.

  5. She obtained citizenship in 2004, by lying about her background. In 2013, which administration outed her as a former terrorist? Was it the administration under whose watch al-Qaeda destroyed the WTC, or the one which killed Osama Bin Laden?

  6. What would you expect, with all the bleeding hearts here in America willing to believe any story of abuse and terror anyone with just a little smarts can get in and become a citizen. Thats why America is in the sorry shape its in now. obama has one on his personal staff and has appointed them all through out the government at all levels to help his anti-American march. To trust obama is to sleep with a snake.

  7. Trying to post 4th time…Stop fighting each other and fight the real enemies. These political, racist, religious or any other divisions are put there on purpose to keep us fighting each other over crap of the dog and pony show they put on to distract us from the countless crimes they commit under our collective noses while our country is going down. If we unite, we have more power than them. So it's the classic game of divide and conquer while we all go down. Wake up people. Fight the real fight. Flood Congress with calls, email, whatever you can to let them know we are on to them and if they want their cushy jobs, to straighten up or be gone. We the People have the power and they are afraid. Keep it that way. WE have our freedoms barely hanging on by a thread and we are stupidly still playing the blame game.

  8. So an islamo Marxist kills 2 Israelis, lied about her background and works for oBScare.

    Vs an islamo Marxist who lied about his background, sodomizes America with oBScare and his trying his best to kill a million Jews by arming Iran w nukes and carving Jihadistan out of the land of of Israel.

    Glad to see yanover and other yidden are waking up to what their support for Dems has cost America and Israel.

  9. We only have to see who he appointed as his US ambassador. Samanatha Powers to the UN, who has stated some time ago. US should invade Israel.
    Then, let us look at who he has appointed to serve the US in various government departments.
    Not a very good lot.
    These appointees should be a worry to every decent American.
    Obama has set US back many years. I hope the next president will be able to undo all the evil that Obama has done, to make America the GREAT COUNTRY IT USED TO BE.

  10. Odeh murdered two innocent young people and wounded ten others? Why was she out of prison in the first place? Did she pinky-swear to be a nice girl? Like American, Israel is much to lenient in some cases.

  11. I would also like to add to Obama administration.
    Kerry is no friend of Israel. He has given the Pa;lestinians the upper hand not to give one inch, but demands that israel committ national suicide.

    Hopefully, when the next president is elected, it WILL NOT BE EITHER KERRY OR HILARY CLINTON.
    They are both dangerous. Clinton lied to the NY Jews to vote her into the senate and that she would be Israel's best friend. As Sec State, she certainly showed that she is no friend of Isael. She is no better that either Obama or Kerry.
    I hope that Mitt Romney will stand again, and to occupy the WH> He is an honest man, and Israel's best friend. He will keep his promise to move the US embassy to Jerusalem. He will make sure that Jerusalem will never be divided.

    We must all pray for Mitt Romney, or a man of his calibre to occupy the WH.

  12. She lied to get her citizenship,and she lied to get her job working for Obama Care. This article was set-up to bring out the Obama haters. How about some GOP'ers writing something about how the GOP in the Senate voting down an extension of Veteran Benefits this last week. While the Dems. voted for the extension.

  13. My reply to this lovely lady didn't come through. To whit my wife's insurance bill already has come through and it is 1/3 rd of what it would be if we could have obtained insurance. Which we could not before Obamacare came into being.Notice how all these nasty people always attack the person because they can't attack the idea
