Germany deports Palestinian convicted of terror, cancels BDS event at Israel's request

Rasmea Odeh, who was convicted for her part in a 1969 bombing that killed two Israeli students, was scheduled to speak at the Berlin event

Germany announced Saturday it would revoke the visa of a Palestinian woman convicted on terrorism charges in Israel, preventing her participation in a cultural event in Berlin organized by a group that supports the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.

The Israeli Embassy in Germany, in cooperation with the Strategic Affairs Ministry, has acted over the last few days to block Rasmea Odeh from taking part in a protest event in Berlin's Kreuzberg neighborhood. The event, titled "Palestinian Women in the Liberation Struggle," was scheduled for Saturday night.
