(ABC News) Dozens of demonstrators gathered at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport on Tuesday to show their support for a Chicago Palestinian activist with a decades-old record of bombings in Jerusalem prior to her deportation to Jordan.
Rasmea Odeh posed for pictures with supporters and activists, some carrying signs with her picture proclaiming their support for her and her cause.
Odeh thanked the crowd before getting on a Royal Jordanian aircraft for the 11?-hour flight to Amman.
“Thank you for all you did for me,” she said. “What happened is unjust, it’s inhuman. They tried to destroy my life, but they will not destroy me.”
