One of the organizers for the International Women's Strike, also known as "A Day Without Women", is known radical terrorist Rasmea Odeh. A second organizer is Angela Davis, noted Black Panthers supporter.
According to the New York Post, organizers are referring to the event as a strike, and are calling for "a new wave of militant, feminist struggle." That's correct, not peaceful, but militant. And that idea can most likely be attributed to Odeh, who is a convicted terrorist, and Davis, who supports the Black Panthers.
Rasmea Odeh was convicted in 1970 in Israel and sentenced to life in prison for a 1969 bombing. That incident occurred in a Jerusalem supermarket, and two Hebrew University students were killed. The conviction also included her attempted bombing of the British Consulate, according to the Detroit News.
Rasmea Odeh only served ten years in prison before being released in a large-scale prisoner swap for an Israeli soldier that had been captured. Of course, she did not disclose those convictions on her immigration application for naturalization. And she became a U.S. citizen in 2004. On November 10, 2014, Odeh was found guilty of immigration fraud by a federal jury for illegally getting her naturalization by falsely answering questions about whether she had ever been convicted or imprisoned. Apparently the background check for becoming a citizen involves checking a box which says "Not a terrorist."
Both her conviction and imprisonment were supposed to be included on her naturalization application but were not. Rasmea Odeh tried to lie her way out of that conviction by saying that she didn't think convictions and imprisonment before she came to the United States in 1994 had to be disclosed. She also said she didn't see the word 'ever' on the application. Odeh won the right to a new trail, set for this spring, 2017 because she claimed she had PTSD.
Another co-organizer of this planned militant march is none other than Angela Davis, a known Black Panthers supporter. Davis was fired from her teaching job at UCLA after admitting she was a member of the Communist Party. In 1972 she bought three guns that were registered in her name and that were used in a courtroom shootout where a judge was killed. Davis was acquitted of criminal charges associated with the shooting.
The International Women's Strike is being described as a 'grass-roots' movement. Women are encouraged to walk off their jobs, and join a demonstration near them. The web site for the strike said that women should spend their day “blocking roads, bridges, and squares, abstaining from domestic, care, and sex work” and “boycotting” pro-Trump businesses. They are also supposed to wear red in solidarity.
The activist event is scheduled to take place in Washington, D.C. March 8, 2017, but there are 'sister' marches being organized across the country. According to the strike's web site, as of Sunday, February 26, 2017, there are 673 other events at cities across the country, with an estimated total number of participants at over 4 million.
I can only imagine what will happen at this event and it will be anything other than peaceful. It's described as militant, and it's organized by known terrorists. I pray our law enforcement officers and innocent civilians will be safe.
Given that Rasmea Odeh was sentenced to life in prison in Israel, should the U.S. deport her or finish her prior sentence? We'd like to hear what you think. Please let us know in the poll below or on our Facebook page.
