German state officials said this week that that convicted Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh is forbidden from participating in a planned anti-Israel event by a group called the Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network.
Odeh was convicted in 1970 of two bombings in Jerusalem, including one that killed two men at a supermarket.
After serving less than a decade in prison for her crimes, for which she was sentenced to life, she was released in 1979 as part of a prisoner swap with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a group designated as a terror organization by the U.S., E.U., Canada, and Israel.
Odeh lied about her criminal record when she later immigrated to America, but her immigration fraud was discovered and she was stripped of U.S. citizenship and deported to Jordan in 2017.
Berlin authorities say the ban lasts until Odeh leaves Germany. A visa allowing her to travel freely in Europe’s 26-nation Schengen area has already been cancelled.
