  • Elder of Ziyon
Last week, Rasmea Odeh was convicted for immigration fraud for lying about having served time in Israeli prisons on her application to live in the US.

There is no question whatsoever that Odeh was behind the fatal bombing of a SuperSol market in 1969.

Yet there are many people, claiming to be "human rights activists," who consider the Jews she killed to be subhuman, since clearly the victims have no rights whatsoever, while the murderer Odeh is held up as a shining example of perfection.

The absurdity has reached a new peak with a letter sent to the courts by various groups asking for reconsideration of her being held without bond:

Dear Judge Drain:

On behalf of the National Lawyers Guild, Jewish Voice for Peace, the Center for Constitutional Rights, Palestine Solidarity Legal Support, National Students for Justice in Palestine, and the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, we write respectfully to request that the Court reconsider its denial of bond pending sentencing, which Ms. Rasmea Odeh requested pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3143(a)(1).

Ms. Odeh’s submissions in support of reconsideration are substantial and, we submit,
would surely sustain her burden of proof, if reconsidered:
...

Ms. Odeh has an exemplary personal history in all respects, except for the nonviolent
offense of making a false statement on her naturalization application.
Yes, these groups - including the doubly oxymoronically named "Jewish Voice for Peace" - are saying that a person who masterminded the planting of bombs in  a supermarket to kill the largest number of Jewish civilians possible has "an exemplary personal history in all respects."

What exactly is Jewish, or peaceful, about whitewashing the crimes of someone who targeted and murdered Jews?

Here are the specific people who signed this letter:

s/ Azadeh Shahshahani, Esq., President
National Lawyers Guild
s/ Rebecca Vilkomerson, Executive Director
Jewish Voice for Peace
s/ Maria LaHood, Esq., Senior Staff Attorney
Center for Constitutional Rights
s/ Samer Khalaf, Esq., National President
American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC)
s/ Dima Khalidi, Esq., Executive Director
Palestine Solidarity Legal Support
s/ Andrew Dalack, Esq. [not yet admitted to practice]
Ad Hoc Steering Committee, National Students for Justice in Palestine
Between the justifications being given for murdering Jewish worshipers and those being given for Rasmea Odeh, this has been a month of moral clarity exposing the sheer hypocrisy of the anti-Israel crowd, whose "morals" are easily twisted any which way as long as they are against Israel.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money.
