Barack Obama better get his cleanup squad over to Kenya where his half brother Malik is spoiling his "I never was a Muslim" effort:
Apparently the Obamas of Kenya have been reading those scurrilous emails to which Barack likes to refer, because they have no doubt -- contrary to the claims of the Obama campaign, that the presidential candidate was raised a Moslem. They take that as a given.
As the Jerusalem Post reports, "Barack Obama's half brother Malik said Thursday that if elected his brother will be a good president for the Jewish people, despite his Muslim background.
In a remarkable denial issued last November that still stands on the official campaign website, Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs issued a statement explaining that "Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised as a Muslim, and is a committed Christian."
Apparently Malik Obama, himself a Muslim, had not read the press release.
For some reason Barry's handlers have been going to great lengths to deny the extensive and ubiquitous evidence that Barack Hussein was born and raised a Muslim:
Obama was enrolled at his primary schools in Indonesia as a Muslim; he attended the mosque during that period; his friends from that time testify that he was a devout Muslim boy. A former teacher at one of these schools, Tine Hahiyary, remembers a young Obama who was quite religious and actively took part in "mengaji" classes which teach how to read the Koran in Arabic.One has to wonder why this is such a big deal for Barry - I mean it's very little compared with the antisemites he used to schmooze with down at Trinity United Church where he was picking up the "audacity of hope" hustle. One reason may well be the example of his cousin, the thuggish Raila Odinga:
Then there is also Obama's troubling support for the Kenyan opposition leader -- and his cousin -- Raila Odinga, the leader of the violent uprising a few months ago against the newly elected Kenyan government and who signed a memorandum of understanding with Kenyan Muslims to turn Kenya into an Islamic state governed by sharia law. At the time, the Evangelical Alliance of Kenya released a statement in which church leaders said Odingacomes across as a presumptive Muslim president bent on forcing Islamic law, religion and culture down the throats of the Kenyan people in total disregard of the Constitutionally guaranteed rights of freedom of worship and equal protection of the law for all Kenyans.
As the Atlas Shrugs site reported, Obama actually went to Kenya in 2006 and spoke at rallies in support of Odinga, causing the Kenyan government to denounce him as "Raila's stooge". Why was Obama supporting such a person? Why has no-one bothered to find out?
Let's see, Raila Odinga is East German educated, named his first son after Fidel Castro, and while he isn't a Muslim either, when his left wing party couldn't gain power in Kenya on its own he signed the deal with Muslim extremists. When he still didn't win, Odinga's followers went on a ethnic cleansing rein of terror until he was granted a role in the government.
Gee, I wonder why Barry doesn't want to talk about that? Expect old Malik to be thrown under the bus shortly and I wonder when we'll see Raila over here to campaign for the Obamessiah and give him a few tips?
