The Kenya Connection
NY Sun ^ | 1/10/2008 | Daniel Johnson

Posted on 01/10/2008 10:29:36 AM PST by sandbox

As he reminded us again after losing narrowly to Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, Barack Obama likes to evoke Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech.

We must all hope that, like King's, Mr. Obama's dream is "deeply rooted in the American dream." But before giving him the keys to the White House, Americans might like to know a little more about the content of Mr. Obama's dream.

Let me propose an unlikely place to start looking: Kenya. Even in the midst of the primaries, the horrific scenes from that country since the disputed election on December 27 will not have escaped most people. In particular, the burning of a church with up to 50 men, women, and children inside, while machete-armed mobs slaughter up to 600 more people, have evoked memories of the Rwandan genocide of 1994.

Who is behind these massacres? The opposition leader, Raila Odinga, has had a good press in the West, after he accused the president, Mwai Kibaki, of rigging the election. But the victims of the recent violence have mostly been members of Mr. Kibaki's tribe, the Kikuyu, while those who have gone berserk are supporters of Mr. Odinga's Orange Democratic Movement, which is dominated by the rival Luo tribe.

Agreed. This is from Rush yesterday:

KLEIN: In his spare time during the last week, Barack Obama has been trying to negotiate a peace deal in Kenya.

SCARBOROUGH: Are you serious?

KLEIN: It is unbelievable. He's been in touch with both sides in the confrontation. He's been in touch with Bishop Desmond Tutu who has gone to Nairobi to try to broker a deal and he's been doing this in between rallies. It's kind of amazing, but also it's an insight into the kind of president he's going to be.

RUSH: This is before the vote came in. This is Joe Klein, "This is the kind of president he's going to be. He's out there in the midst of the New Hampshire primary and he's trying to negotiate a peace deal in Kenya." He should have spent more time focusing on a peace deal in New Hampshire involving him! Barack, you better hope the media sours on you.(cont.)

I think it is best to be cautious about the “memorandum” purporting to show that Odinga supports a radical Muslim agenda. The source below is an Evangelical Alliance opposed to Odinga and in my opinion this memorandum could be a forgery. For example, Odinga, an avowed Anglican, recognizes Islam as the “only true religion” in the first article. Why would he do that in a country that is 80 percent Christian? Also, Odinga named his children after Castro and Winnie Mandela. These are not good Muslim names, but are exactly what a Commie might name his kids.

What should Americans make of Mr. Obama’s Kenyan connection? If he has been putting tribal or family considerations above America’s national interest by supporting Mr. Odinga’s anti-Western candidacy, it raises serious questions about his judgement.

At the time of his visit in 2006, President Kibaki’s spokesman complained that Mr. Obama was behaving like a “stooge” of Mr. Odinga — which was at best undignified for a visiting American senator, and at worst unwarranted interference in the internal politics of another country.

Even more serious are the doubts raised by Mr. Obama’s attitude toward Islam, which has so far received much less scrutiny than might be expected in a post-September 11 presidential election.

If Mr. Obama did not know about Mr. Odinga’s electoral deal with the Kenyan Islamists when he offered his support, then he should have known.

If he did know, then he is guilty of lending the prestige of his office to America’s enemies in the global war on terror. We need to know exactly what Mr. Obama knew about Mr. Odinga, and precisely when he knew it.

Thanks for the info. We need to look who is actually backing our candidates; not just the MSM. They are only silly stooges.

Whether Mr. Odinga has ordered his men to commit murder and arson is unclear. But his own background does not exactly suggest enthusiasm for democracy and the rule of law. Mr. Odinga’s father, Oginga Odinga, led the Communist opposition during the Cold War and Raila Odinga was educated in Communist East Germany.

In 1982 he was implicated in a failed coup against the then president Daniel Arap Moi. His eldest son is named after Fidel Castro ...

Even more sinister has been Mr. Odinga’s electoral pact with the National Muslim Leaders’ Forum — a hardline Islamist organization that represents Kenya’s Muslim minority. According to this document, dated August 29, 2007, Mr. Odinga promised the Muslim leaders that, if elected, he would establish Sharia courts, not only in the northern and coastal regions where Kenyan Muslims are concentrated, but throughout the country.

He also promised to impose Muslim dress codes on women, ban alcohol and pork, indoctrinate children, ban Christian preaching, and dismiss the Commissioner of Police “who has allowed himself to be used by heathens and Zionists.”

In short, Mr. Odinga in effect offered to Islamize Kenya in return for Muslim votes, despite the fact that Muslims make up only 10% of the population, compared to the 80% who are Christian.

in my opinion this memorandum could be a forgery>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Why would it be a forgery? Is there anything in the document or in its signatory that indicates that. The document certainly reflects the strategic situation that would allow Kenya Somalia and Sudan to unite in a Muslim African axis. Of course, thats just too far fetched to be true?

Having been in Kenya, I can say that the country has benefited, because of it's stability, by a large influx of "European Capital." , in banking, agriculture and the tourist industry. This has been a carrot on the stick for Kenya's government to maintain stability, and to that end it has evolved a decent army, which has prevented the infiltration of communist style liberals, who want "power to the people" which in Africa, means poverty and violent inter-tribal struggle and the emergence of tribal war lords.

Most of the original Euro capital in Kenya was British but later diversified to South Africans, Rhodesians, Germans, Dutch, Scandinavian, Israeli and British commonwealth investment.

As the Arab nations accumulated vast amounts of capital, they eyed Kenya's Israeli investors who had invested billions of dollars in resorts which are situated on the Inidian Ocean coast between Mombasa and Lamu on the Somalian border. The Jewish presence ticked the Arabs wholesale. Islamofascists went in and attempted to RPG an Israeli airliner a few years ago, killing some Kenyan staff simultaneously in a resort in the Kikambala area.

The ex pat investors circled the wagons to keep the Islamofascists out of Kenya, as they attempted incursions into the Mombasa area. This was successful with the help of Kenya's army. The Muslim council of Kenya and Somalia then decided to support takeover from within Kenya, by financing Odinga, and helping his campaign with infusions of mega bucks. Enter our relative, Obama, to assist.

The idea is to bring in sharia law for the whole of Kenya in order to shut down the Israeli resorts and to nationalize capital assets owned by foreigners, selling them to wealthy Arabs. The resorts now owned by the Israelis will become Arab pleasure palaces ( with the usual array of Muslim slave women from Indonesia, Russia, Palestine etc.), and those Kenyans now working there will become Muslims and enter into the traditional master/slave relationship that has always existed between Arabs and Africans, with some prominent Kenyans as the slave drivers, like Odinga.

Sharia law prevents alcohol, bikinis, and beach bongos. No more tourism. The Israelis will have to sell out to wealthy Arabs, and also risk being bombed and shot otherwise. Kenya will then enter the black whole other African nations have, and lapse into a religious oligarchy and become like Somalia.

The expat investment community in Kenya is in distress. They are on the verge of hiring large groups of mercenaries to defend their property and supplement the Kenyan Army. The Arabs are prepared to fund the Luo and supply then with weaponry so they can usurp power through guerrilla warfare, with help from the Sudan and Somalia.Al Qaeda will likely get in on the act.

Obama knows all this, and he chose the side of economic and social devolution. Thats why Obama is not fit to be president of the United States. His close ties with his family and many visits, have made it highly unlikely that he was "unaware " of the dynamic. He is just too intelligent, and too black nationalist to have been duped by Odinga, who claims Obama is his cousin.

So the plan is to bring Kenya into an axis with adjacent Somalia and Sudan, and then Egypt will fall to Islamofascism. Eventually the Arab oil supply nations will be encircled. Thats the plan. Unseat the House of Saud, and recapture Mecca and the Oil Fields for the World Caliphate.

Odinga needs to be brought to justice. He and his Islamofascists need to be tried, and executed according to Kenyan Law for the genocide they have committed. Obama is an International criminal for aiding and abetting this Islamofascist movement, and the Kenyan government should issue a warrant for his arrest. Burning a church full of women and children is simply the beginning otherwise, for guerrilla warfare by the Luo is the next step in the usual Islamofascist evolution.The Luo are a distinct tribal minority, and seek to impose their will on a majority who want nothing to do with their scheme.

Unless Odinga and his henchmen are captured, tried and punished, this will go on for decades, and ruin a perfectly good country. Obama needs to be brought to a very short leash, and should resign his candidacy and his senate seat. Then he should be deported to Kenya to allow the Kenyan authorities to deal with him. I am sure he would be an excellent source of information to them.

These truths will never likely be addressed by the US MSM. Obama is their media darling, and thats part of the Obama plan. He can snub his nose at justice, because he is so popular. And if he plays his cards into the presidency, or a vice presidential office, he can help Odinga negotiate and consolidate his power in Kenya. Obama will do the same for other little jumped up African tyrants through supplying " Hope and Change" aid to such idiots, and to Islamofascist organizations, without traducing current law on funding terrorist groups. Soon the US government will be funding terrorist groups.. For this reason Obama needs to be stopped now.He is a stone cold Islamofascist.

This is not a battle in Kenya for who stole the election. We have had that ourselves here in America, and Obama learned well the advice he is now giving Odinga. The battle is for the continued freedom of a Christian nation, which is now being subverted by slick Islamofascism, with the help of a sitting US Senator, who believes his popularity and campaign places him beyond the grip of justice.

Mohamed Abdi Is Somali, Muslim, Marine Vet,Friends Who wanted him to Run for Office in Minnesota, Worked for Keith Ellison's campaign for Congress

Ex-Marine to carry American dream home to Kenya Doug Grow, Star Tribune

In a few days, Mohamed Abdi will pack up his family and take his American dreams back to Kenya.

Everything in his adult life has been geared to this return to East Africa. His arrival in the United States in 1995 to attend college at Mankato State. His enlistment in the Marines to learn discipline. His participation in U.S. politics to learn about grass-roots campaigning.

It would be so comfortable to stay. But, at age 30, it's time to go and begin a campaign for parliament.

"I want to be a Martin Luther King for my country," he said.

You can call Abdi courageous or stubborn or a dreamer. But always add this: proud American.

"If I had never come here," s! aid Abdi, "I never would have been able to think about making my dreams come true. In this country, I learned that you don't have to come from a prominent family or be wealthy to run for office. I'm 100 percent American."

Which is not to say he doesn't understand our blemishes.

For example, on Sept. 11, the day before this fall's primary elections, Abdi, a volunteer for Keith Ellison's campaign for Congress, was knocking on doors, reminding people to vote.

One conversation, Abdi said, went something like this:

Abdi: "I'm here to remind you to vote tomorrow in the primary."

Man at door: "I can't believe someone named Mohamed is telling me about voting, especially on Sept. 11. You people are the people who flew planes into buildings."

Abdi: "I had nothing to do with that. Can I ask you what you've done to serve your country?"

Man: "I was with the Postal Service."

Abdi: "I've been a Marine for eight years.! "

Man: "I'm sorry for what I said."

He's no ! stranger to the sort of bigotry that he faced at that door. He grew up in Mandera, a cruelly poor region of Kenya filled with people of Somali roots. In Kenya, Somalis are seen as second-class citizens. Basics such as roads are nearly nonexistent. Starvation is a constant. As far back as fifth grade, Abdi, whose family is Somali, resisted the injustices.

"In Kenya, we have something called Presidents Day," he said. "I was in a choir, and we were supposed to learn a song of praise for our president. In the song, there were words like, 'the good father.' " At the time, the corrupt Daniel arap Moi was president of Kenya.

"I would not sing," Abdi recalled. "The teacher wondered why. And I said it's because the president is not a good father."

In the short term, he said, he was suspended from school.

But in the long term, it was the first step on a journey to the United States and citizenship and two hitches in the Marines, which took him to the Afghan! istan and Iraqi theaters, and then to Marine recruiting duty in the Twin Cities. That led him to Ellison, whom he greatly admires.

The admiration, it should be noted, is mutual. Ellison is an Abdi fan, as are a lot of Marines, meaning he has a broad base of support -- in the United States.

"I have friends here who want me to run for office in Minnesota," he said. "But I tell them we have many leaders in this country. My people need leaders."

His campaign will begin in earnest in January. The election is in 13 months.

"I'm going to take them the good part of America," he said.

Known as Mohammed Abdi in USA but uses name " Mohamed Wali" in Kenya.


One of many innocent victims, who got arrested in odd connections with the Sep11th attack. In January 2002, the Washington Post reported, that for four months, authorities jailed Mohamed Abdi and pressed him to explain why they found his name and phone number in a car left behind by the Sept. 11 hijackers. When investigators examined an ADC map found inside a Toyota registered to Dulles Airport hijacker Nawaf Alhazmi, they noticed the name "Mohumed" and a Virginia phone number written on the cover in yellow highlighter. The number was Abdi's. But Abdi was found unguilty. The judge couldn't find any hard evidence of contacts between Abdi and the Sep11th attack. The FBI never explained, what "went wrong".

Thanks for the ping. The fact that Obama is even a serious candidate is pretty disgraceful. Something is very wrong.

Mohammed Abdi and FBI This was at find law.

I do not know if Wali and Abdi are the same guy. Wali/Abdi worked for the Keith Ellison Campaign in Minnesota, and Obama apparently supported him as an Orange Democrat Party Candidate ( Odingas)

The Muzzies have an international network it seems.Ellison is connected to the Obama Kenya network.

BNTW, Keith Ellison is the first Muslim elected to congress. Took his Oath of Office on a Koran, not a bible, used a copy of Thomas Jeffersons used to research the Barbary Pirates.

I thought as an Aussie you might not know this stuff. The Muzzies seem to have a neat network going right from the Senat/Congress and into Kenya.I bet there is a pretty substantial organization, with funding and everything.I also assume they are linked with the Islamofascists in Somalia. Wali/Abdi is Somali

Where? Except for the Richard Cohen column in the House Organ of the Leviathan State, a/k/a the Washington Post, they all seem to be determined not to let it surface if they can possibly do so. Yet it is the only candidate connection to Islamofascism. More focus by candidates and more specific focus on winning the war, particularly on the strategic struggle in Africa would force attention to this dangerous connection.

I would like to see an image of this "Mohumed" Abdi! Any reports on the trial you might be able to find? Mind you, those names...seem to be so interchangable. And did you notice it's impossible to 'capture' an image from the website I posted?
