Last October, U.S. Department of Homeland Security agents arrested Odeh at her Chicago-area home. She’s scheduled to appear in a Detroit court on Nov. 4 to face charges of the unlawful procurement of naturalization.Odeh became an American citizen in 2004. In the naturalization process, she apparently failed to disclose her 1969 arrest and conviction which resulted in her decade-long imprisonment in an Israeli jail. “She doesn’t accept the conviction because it was forced under torture, and she doesn’t accept the Israeli military tribunal that convicted her,” Hatem Abudayyeh, a colleague of Odeh’s at the Arab American Action Network in Chicago, told MintPress News.
