A former convicted Palestinian terrorist was hired as an Obamacare navigator in President Barack Obama’s home state of Illinois, with state government officials claiming they were unaware of a conviction for three terrorist attacks including a deadly food store bombing in Israel in 1969, according to a news report on Tuesday night’s edition of the Fox News Channel’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.”

The female jihadist, 66-year-old Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, was arrested, prosecuted and convicted by an Israeli criminal court for perpetrating several bombings, including an attack on a crowded food market, that left two college students dead in 1969. The convicted jihadist was later released from prison as part of an Israeli-Palestinian prisoner swap.

According to Greta Van Susteren’s report, the two students — Leon Kanner and Eddie Joffe — were mortally wounded when a box of candy bars containing an improvised explosive device (IED) hidden in it was detonated by Odeh and her fellow Palestinian terrorists.

Besides the two victims killed, 10 other customers were wounded by Odeh’s bombing on behalf of the terrorist group the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).

According to the Fox News show’s report, the Department of Insurance for the state of Illinois without fanfare terminated Odeh’s employment as an Obamacare (Affordable Care Act) navigator.

A government official had told Miss Odeh that her firing was the result of a background investigation that found she was convicted in Israel for her role in the bombing of the supermarket as well as a bombing of the British Consulate in Jerusalem.

According to Van Susteren, she wasn’t fired because of her Palestinian terrorist background, but because she had not acknowledged her conviction on her government job application. As a result, on Oct. 22, 2013, Odeh was arrested for not disclosing her conviction for terrorism during her citizenship naturalization process in 2004, according to an FBI report.

Her criminal trial is scheduled for April and if she is convicted, Odeh will lose her U.S. citizenship and may serve up to 10 years for naturalization fraud, according to theFBI.

24 Americans Sue Obama, Clinton for Funding Palestinian Terrorism

By Daniel Greenfield

The plaintiffs are 24 Americans living in Israel, some of whom were injured in terrorist attacks. The defendants are Hillary Clinton and a number of State Department officials, including the head of USAID. And the lawsuit has long been overdue.

The lawsuit, which was filed in Washington, DC, contends that the State Department and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ignored Congressional safeguards and transparency requirements attached to US aid to the Palestinian Authority, thus allowing for the funneling of funds to Hamas, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), and the Palestine Liberation Front. It also accuses the White House of not complying with the regulations and reporting obligations governing presidential waivers which facilitate emergency funding to the Palestinians.

“I just want justice,” said Stuart Hersh, one of the plaintiffs, an elderly Jerusalem resident and victim of a terror attack on Ben Yehuda Street in the same city in 1997, which caused him brain damage and left him partially disabled. “I am against the American government indirectly financing Hamas — the very people who try to kill me,” Hersh said by telephone, adding that he differentiates between “humanitarian aid for the Palestinian people and supporting political agendas.”

Karen Bell Eisenberg, an American-Israeli who lives outside Bethlehem in the West Bank, put it this way: “I don’t begrudge Palestinian aid money. But I’m tired of my tax money [she works for an American company and pays taxes in the US] being used to fund the very people who are trying to kill me.”

The State Department, under the Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act, is prohibited from providing “material support” to banned terrorist groups.

“USAID’s funding of the PA, for example, is partially distributed to Gaza, where Hamas employees are paid,” Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, said.

The State Department and USAID were particularly “lax” in requiring the Palestinians to “utilize bank accounts and other transfer methods that ensure transparency.” US funds have been flowing to the terror groups as a result of this noncompliance.

The meat of the story is in the lawsuit which extensively lays out where the money has been coming from and going to.

In April 2012, Defendant Secretary of State decided to provide the Palestinian Authority (or others within the West Bank and Gaza) with the remaining approximately $192,000,000, notwithstanding that the congressional hold on that funding had not been lifted

Pursuant to President Obama’s waiver described above and(perhaps) Defendant Secretary of State’s certification described above, the United States gave to the Palestinian Authority and/or others within the West Bank and Gaza approximately $192,000,000 on April 28, 2012

In the fiscal year ending September 30, 2012, the United States obligated and/or gave approximately $200,000,000 of Economic Support Fund resources directly to the Palestinian Authority

There are countless entries like these showing money being transferred either without following congressional limits and restrictions or ignoring the necessary measures to insure that the money is not going to terrorists. And Obama, by bypassing such safeguards, is effectively funding terrorism.

The Palestinian Authority does not deem certain terrorist activity as criminal activity and therefore cannot be trusted to prevent the diversion of money to terrorist or for terrorism

Upon information and belief, the Palestinian Authority pays monthly salaries to approximately 5,500 prisoners in Israeli prisons, including convicted terrorists. Despite constant budget shortages the Palestinian Authority pays over$5,000,000 a month directly to terrorists and their families for their violent and illegal services to the Palestinian Authority

Upon information and belief, a law signed and published in the official Palestinian Authority Registry in April 2011 puts on the Palestinian Authority payroll to receive a monthly salary all Palestinians and Israeli Arabs imprisoned in Israel for terror crimes. The salaries to imprisoned terrorists are in excess of the average wage paid to Palestinians

The Palestinian Authority funds the salaries for terrorists from its general budget, much of which is derived from U.S. foreign aid

Because, as alleged above, the United States’ funding is necessary for the continued operation of the Palestinian Authority’s terrorist recruitment operations, the United States is a willing participant in that recruitment operation by facilitating the Palestinian Authority’s efforts to encourage more of its civilians to become terrorists

The lawsuit rightly charges the State Department and Obama with funding terrorism. But whether anything will be done about that is another story.
