Demand justice for
Alex Odeh! 

Sign a petition to Attorney General Eric Holder,
asking him to hold those responsible for his death accountable.

Dear Supporter,

Today is the twenty-eighth anniversary of the murder of Alex Odeh, as he opened the door of the Southern California Regional Office of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC)Although the FBI identified three suspects right after the attack, to date, none of them have been indicted or even questioned.

Demand justice for Alex Odeh! Please sign a petition to Attorney General Eric Holder, asking him to hold those responsible for Alex's death accountable. Help us deliver 5,000 petition signatures to the ADC's Alex Odeh Memorial Banquet on October 19th!

On the morning of October 11, 1985, in the city of Santa Ana, California, a pipe bomb exploded as Alex opened the door to the Southern California Regional Office of the ADC. Shortly after, he was pronounced dead at the local hospital. The explosion injured seven other people and demolished the office. 

The FBI identified the murderers almost immediately after the attack, and an FBI spokesman also named the Jewish Defense League (JDL) as the organization behind Alex Odeh’s murder. The JDL has been designated by the FBI as a right-wing terrorist group and by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group.

Twenty-eight years after Alex's murder, no arrests or charges have been made. The US government has not even interviewed or questioned the suspects.

What is the US government waiting for? Sign our petition to the Attorney General.
