Outrageous College Students Honor Convicted Palestinian Bomber
Students at DePaul University are rallying behind a woman who was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for a bombing in Jerusalem.
Rasmieh Odeh was a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine when the group killed two students in a bombing at a market in 1969.
Odeh, now in her late 60s, was released in 1995 as part of a prisoner exchange and came to the United States.
Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) held a fundraiser for Odeh's legal defense after a federal jury found that she lied on her immigration papers by answering "no" to the question of whether she'd been convicted of a crime.
Seth Winberg, an Orthodox rabbi and executive director of Metro Chicago Hillel, talked to Brian Kilmeade this morning about his group's effort to protest the SJP's actions.
Winberg organized a vigil for the two victims of the bombing as a way to protest. He said the anti-Israel sentiment on college campuses appears to be getting more extreme.
"It’s a very disturbing development on college campuses. ... Now we’re seeing the line between non-violence and violence is being blurred. They’re celebrating somebody who killed Israeli civilians," said Winberg.
He said other students at DePaul came to him and wanted to find a way to speak out against Odeh being honored at their school.
