A terrorist from Jordan briefly worked as an Obamacare navigator in Illinois while authorities remained unaware of her conviction for involvement in a deadly grocery store bombing and two other attacks.
Rasmieh Yousef Odeh was convicted in Israel for her role in several bombings, including the 1969 attack on an upscale Shufersol grocery store, which killed two Hebrew University students who had stopped in to buy groceries for a hiking trip in the Jerusalem hills. Leon Kanner and Eddie Joffe were killed by a bomb hidden in a candy box tucked on a shelf, which also injured nine or 10 others, according to a website maintained by the Israeli government to commemorate terror victims.
The Illinois Department of Insurance quietly revoked Odehs certification as a Navigator In-Person Counselor on November 24, explaining in a disciplinary report that the decision was based on an investigation which revealed that she had been convicted in Israel for her role in the bombings of a supermarket and the British Consulate in Jerusalem and failed to reveal the conviction on her application.

The SEIU/ACORN/DNC cartel has high standards.
Like all Islamic Terrorists we have brought in,
this man is protected now by the US Constitution.
You Americans voted to be killed this way. Now just die."
Obamacare IS terroristic.
yes, it makes sense.
She was not fired for being a terrorist murderer. She was fired for not revealing it on her application. Had she done that she would still be working as a navigator.
background checks, what’s a background check?.......well, we all know how it went in 2008 when Pelosi OK’d Odungo....God help us
Special agents arrested Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, 66, at a Chicago-area residence after the unsealing of an indictment filed in federal court in Detroit. The indictment charges procurement of citizenship unlawfully. The indictment alleges that Odeh was convicted in Israel for her role in the 1969 bombings of a supermarket and the British Consulate in Jerusalem, which were carried out on behalf of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a designated terrorist organization.
According to the indictment, Odeh and others placed multiple bombs at the British Consulate and in a supermarket. One of the bombs placed at the supermarket detonated, killing two and injuring others. A bomb placed at the Consulate caused structural damage to the facility. Odeh was sentenced by Israeli military authorities to life imprisonment but was released after 10 years as part of a prisoner exchange, and she then returned to the West Bank.
The indictment alleges that in 1995, she immigrated to the United States and naturalized as a citizen in 2004. In her immigration documents filed in the United States, the indictment alleges, Odeh omitted her arrest, conviction, and imprisonment overseas, which were material facts for the United States government in determining whether to grant her citizenship.
CHICAGO — CHICAGO (AP) An Arab-American community activist from the Chicago suburbs was arrested Tuesday on immigration charges for allegedly lying about her conviction for a deadly bombing more than 40 years ago in Israel.
Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, 66, spent a decade in an Israeli prison for her involvement in a 1969 attack that involved bombs planted at a crowded Jerusalem supermarket and a British consulate, according to a federal indictment. Only one bomb one of two placed at the supermarket exploded, killing the two people and wounding several others. Israeli authorities have said the attacks were planned by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
An Israeli military court sentenced Odeh to life in prison in 1970, but she was released 10 years later in a prisoner exchange with the Popular Front. Israel released 76 prisoners in exchange for an Israeli soldier captured in Lebanon, according to Odeh’s indictment.
WOW. I feel safer already that terrorists are being removed from being obamacare navigators. Such rigorous hiring standards will certainly keep us safe from the affirmative action hires, ACORN thugs, SEIU goons, Black Panthers, convicted felons, and now terrorists from our personal medical information. Nothing to worry about here. /s
One down and thousands to go.
If that is the 2 agents that arrested her, it looks like ‘we’ may have infiltrated the group.
Of course if that is so, leave it to the press to have published their picture and will probably reward them by revealing their home addresses and where their kids go to school.
Infiltrated or not, the two are dressed like they are undercover so I guess it is OK to ‘blow their cover’.
The indictment alleges that in 1995, she immigrated to the United States and naturalized as a citizen in 2004
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Well obviously since she was granted citizenship in 2004 we can
“BLAME BUSH” for her being hired.
Definitely have to ‘read’ these things to get to the bottom of the story..../sarc
