A Palestinian immigrant convicted of hiding an Israeli terrorism conviction from U.S. authorities when she moved to the Chicago suburbs in the 1990s should be locked up for at least five years, federal prosecutors say.

Anything less would be a “slap on the wrist” for Evergreen Park activist Rasmieh Odeh, and could encourage terrorists fighting with ISIS to come to the U.S., they argue.

But lawyers for Odeh — who was convicted by an Israeli court of taking part in a Jerusalem supermarket bombing that killed two students in 1969 — say she was a freedom fighter, not a terrorist, and that she has done only good works since arriving in Chicago’s Arab-American community. They allege the government is trying to “curry favor with their American Zionist constituents and obfuscate 67 years of Israeli terrorism” by pushing for an unusually harsh sentence.
