DePaul University Hosts Fundraiser for Palestinian Terrorist

-By Warner Todd Huston

On February 3, Chicago’s DePaul University celebrated a terrorist and held a fundraiser for her. Celebrating terrorists and pushing enemies to our country. This is how far our universities have fallen.

Rasmea Yousef Odeh, a so-called “Palestinian” who is set to be deported from the U.S. for lying about her criminal record to U.S. immigration authorities, was honored at DePaul and given a fundraiser to help her fight the government, and to allow this murderer to stay in the country.

Odeh was convicted in 1969 of the murder of two Israeli students, Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner, who died during her bombing of the British Consulate. The evidence presented against her was fairly overwhelming and she was convicted.

This murderer snuck into the US and even secured a job in the Obama administration–something that should surprise no one.

This week a fundraiser was held for her which was hosted by the Chicago chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP).

Even as our university celebrates this murderer, lawbreaker, liar, and enemy to the United States, not everyone at DePaul was so eager to celebrate this monster. A group of students protested the insane celebration and rallied in support of this killer’s victims.
