About This Issue

Dear Reader,
 
Our July-August 1989 issue of The Link  featured an interview with Ellen Nassab, sister of Alex Odeh, the slain Southern California Regional Coordinator of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC). In that interview Ellen cited a LA Times article that named a member of the Jewish Defense League as a suspect in her brother’s murder.
 
A second Link in 2016 by Richard Habib cited a Washington Post article of Nov. 17, 1987 that referred to an FBI memo stating that “several key suspects in the [Odeh] investigation have fled to Israel.”
 
Who are these suspects?  What are they doing in Israel? Why have they not been extradited to face trial in America?  These are questions posed by David Sheen in this our third issue on a subject that, now 35 years after Alex’s assassination, cries out for justice.
 
David Sheen is an investigative journalist living in Israel.  Since 2010, he has reported on racial conflict and religious extremism in Israel/Palestine, writing for dozens of local, regional and international news outlet.  Since 2014, he has lectured on these topics at dozens of U.S universities and more than half a dozen European parliaments.  In 2017, he was recognized for his reporting and named a “Human Rights Defender” by the Front Line Defenders.
 
The manuscript David submitted to us came with 164 footnotes, far too many to publish.  Readers interested in the source of any particular claim should email me at ameu@aol.com and I will send them the relevant footnote.
 
Finally, on page 16 of the PDF, we have placed a “Gift Subscription” form.  For $20 we will send a year’s subscription to The Link, along with recent AMEU publications, to the person or persons you enroll.
