Hes a man without a country.
An immigrant in Alabama who has been arrested 35 times in 12 years cannot be extradited because the United States does not recognize his homeland, the Birmingham News reports.
According to the paper, federal authorities have tried to remove convicted felon Sofyan Eldani, 45, but couldnt send him to his native Palestine because the U.S. does not recognize it as a country. Eldani says he is a native of Palestine, though he carries an Egyptian passport.
Eldani's arrests include assault, fraudulent checks, criminal mischief, resisting arrests, reckless endangerment, shoplifting, burglary, drug possession, failure to appear, probation violation, possession of a drug paraphernalia and DUI.
He has at least nine convictions, including four felonies, and served six months in an Alabama prison for receiving stolen property. His most recent arrest was for allegedly being found with crack cocaine during a traffic stop, according to the Birmingham News.

Well, the real headline is: Justice department refuses to expel known terrorist.
Can’t Israel receive him and then shove him out?
Why not deport felonious African nationals? They may have been born here, however they do NOT like the USA, and claim dual nationalities! They refuse to behave civilized, they don’t belong here, all they do is cause death and destruction, and drain resources.
There is and never has been a Palistine as a country, there is a region called that and guess what? Most Jews are from there too! Nice try lying little liberal trained scum!

Drop him off over Egypt, and let the Muslim Brotherhood sort it out.
Send him to Syria, then. Or just take him over there and push him out of the plane. Wherever he lands, they’re stuck with him.
Alabama should threaten to let him go if the US doesn’t extradite him. Watch how fast the policy will change.
Palestine is in Texas—but I doubt they want this guy.
He’s been arrested 35 times, 9 convictions, and 4 felonies.
Why isn’t he in prison?
