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.

Why not send him to Egypt?
Send this bastid to the ‘recognized homeland’ of Gitmo.
Exactly. Egypt gave him a passport to come to America to commit crimes, send him back to Egypt! The feds sure aren’t very bright.
deliver him....from 30,000 feet
Give him a hoodie and drop him off in Chicago
Yer’ right. Why are we even feeding this scumbag. Kick him out, wave and chill.
After 9-11 FBI went all over the country rounding up muslims and deporting them - I knew some Palestinians they got and deported `em from California SF Bay area after there was a meeting in a grocery store they were observing...They abandoned the grocery store and took off ...Many took off on their own back to Gaza.
Deportation is really simple. Just take him to JFK and put him on an Egyptian Airline flight to Cairo. Tell them if they don’t take him back you will suspend their landing rights. End of story. Trouble is we have no one with any b.... left in the USG or State Dept..or Homeland Security..a few bull dykes but no b....
Thereis a home in Chicago , no one is living in. Send him up there to Homestead it.
At least one thing is right—Palestine is not a country.
He belongs back in Egypt.
Send him half-way to Palestine and drop him. That should be about 200 miles west of the Azores
Yup. Libs hate rendition and waterboarding because it works and makes terrorists suffer. When criminals and terrorists suffer, libtards throw a hissy fit and get their panties in a twist.
Because then Obama can't politicize this situation in favor of recognizing Palestine?
A new ploy for illegal aliens - just say you come from Dirtbagistan and you won’t go anywhere until some government drone finds it
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!
Zadvydas v. Davis
Breyer, J., delivered the opinion of the Court, in which Stevens, OConnor, Souter, and Ginsburg, JJ., joined. Scalia, J., filed a dissenting opinion, in which Thomas, J., joined. Kennedy, J., filed a dissenting opinion, in which Rehnquist, C. J., joined, and in which Scalia and Thomas, JJ., joined as to Part I.
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?
