BBC (one minute world news) ^ | 04-13-08 | Kackikat

Posted on 04/13/2008 11:06:13 AM PDT by Kackikat

BBC NEWS ARTICLE STATES:

"Kenya unveils coalition cabinet

Mr Kibaki called for politics to be set aside Kenya's president has announced a new power-sharing cabinet following a deal with the opposition to end the long-running political crisis. President Mwai Kibaki named opposition leader Raila Odinga AS PRIME MINISTER."

Online I found an article that says: "2007-2008 Barack Obama's cousin Raila Odingo (a radical Muslim African Arab) planned and executed the 'ethnic cleansing' of Kenya's Rift Valley," ...unquote

the BBC article also states further down that 1600 people had been killed due to the politics that caused the President to give Obama's cousin the Prime Minister position with 50-50 power of cabinet positions for each..

Considering the above information from a different source, the BBC news article is very disturbing: (Notice Odingo OBAMA'S COUSIN is described as a radical Muslim African Arab.)

I remember reading an article, last week, that predicted the possibility of Obama’s cousin being appointed Prime Minister. It was not a positive article. I’ll have to do some searching to find it again.

It’s offcial now, and BBC news reporting it today. I saw the article you spoke of, and just think only 1600 people died to make it happen.

This is not from the article that I was looking for, but it gives a pretty good idea of who Odinga is.

After Obama Jr's 2006 visit, Odinga supporters created T-shirts and posters with computer-altered images showing Obama Jr. and Kenyan presidential candidate Odinga standing side by side with arms around each other.

That caused one excited Kenyan blogger to write, "in 2009, we might see a Luo president in Kenya, a Luo president in the USA, and a Luo ambassador in Washington, D.C."

In December 2006, a Kenyan posted an online message claiming a car jacking and killing of a leading Kenyan professor was an attempt by the Kikuyu tribe controlled government to "ethnically cleanse" Kenya of Luo's -- Obama's family tribe. The poster copied the senator as an indirect message to Obama Jr. -- "Stand up against the persecution of your tribe."

Just over a year later, on Sunday, Dec 30, 2007, all of Kenya was edged closer to tribal warfare when over 100 people were murdered in a church were they had fled for refuge.

More than 200 people, mainly Kikuyus, the same tribe as President Kibaki, were desperately seeking safety in the Kenya Assemblies of God church when a gang of 2000 armed young men drawn from the Luo, Kalenjin and Luhya tribes stormed and torched the church. Witnesses reported that when people - at least 80 of them children -tried to flee being burned alive, they where hacked to death with machetes.

The attackers were backers of defeated presidential candidate Odinga who is claiming that President Kibaki had rigged the election.

Obambi should never be given another chance to run for POTUS again in the future. His political defeat this year must be complete and forever.
It is bad enough that we are overrun with Muslims, no need to have one in the WH too.

Amen to that. This guy is so dangerous I don’t ever want to see him as a Presidential candidate ever again either. He’s turned out to be far worse and kooky than I ever imagined. And that was before I knew of Jeremiah Wright who really gave us the anchor this obama-dude has held onto for 20 years.

Thanks for posting that information, and I hope everyone will read it. There are so many RED FLAGS on this, it is unbelievable that people do not understand what is happening here, and not just in Africa.
Obama went to Africa to campaign for his cousin, Odingo...and knowing his cousin was an african-arab and radical, muslim extremist and not some nutty uncle in the closet...what does that tell us about Obama?

Wright= former muslim, BLT preacher
Ferrakhan=leader of Islam
Odingo-radical muslim extremist
and the beat goes on.

Odinga (cousin to Obama) is alledged to have signed the following MOU.
 
Memorandum of Understanding with the Orange Democratic Movement to introduce Sharia (Islamic fundamentalist law) to Kenya
Concerns Raised Over Alleged Vow to Enforce Islamic Law in Kenya

snip

According to International Christian Concern (ICC), however, there are in fact two versions of the MOU. The persecution watchdog group claims that Abdi and Odinga signed a private MOU which is very different from the one presented to the public.

In the secret version of the MOU, Odinga allegedly states his intention to, ”within six months, rewrite the Constitution of Kenya to recognize Sharia as the only true law sanctioned by the Holy Quran for Muslim declared regions” if elected, according to ICC.”

“In response to the revelations, the Evangelical Alliance of Kenya released a statement in which church leaders said Raila, in both MOUs, “comes 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.”

Odingo can belong to anything he wants, but that doesn’t make him anything other than a radical muslim who caused 1600 deaths in order to get power in Kenya...and Obama campaigned for him...Now that’s rich! Odingo also said while running (Obama campained with him in Kenya) he would invoke Sharia law and make Islam only religion.

Maybe, but Odinga is an Anglican. Most of Kenya's tiny Muslim population supported Odinga's party, but Odinga himself is not Muslim.

I'm not sure I understand. You're saying that Odinga is a radical Muslim, even though he's actually an Anglican? You do know that the vast majority of Luo (Odina and Obama's tribe) are Christians? The only reason Obama's family happens to be Muslim is because his grandfather converted to Islam. Odinga isn't Muslim, nor are the vast majority of the members of Odinga's Luo-dominated party.

Thanks, it sure quenches the belief that Odingo is not a muslim. People are so gullible. Odingo is very dangerous to Kenya; hence 1600 people died already. Now would the real Obama please stand up! Obama went to Kenya and campaigned for Odingo...WHAT PART OF the Muslim/Islam thing can he still deny.
Lying about 20 yrs of Wright was bad enough, but is he going to say he didn’t know Odingo was a murdering radical muslim?

HERE IS AN ARTICLE THAT MAY HELP YOU SEE:

“Remember Odingo, the guy that sent his goons to slaughter the Christians with machetes and burn them alive in the churches? AFTER LOSING A CLOSE ELECTION...

Kenyans burned to death in church

Thirty Kenyans including many children have been burned to death in a church, after seeking refuge from the mounting violence over last week’s elections.
A mob set fire to the church in Eldoret where many people from President Mwai Kibaki’s Kikuyu tribe were sheltering.

The Kenyan government has accused supporters of opposition leader Raila Odinga of carrying out “ethnic cleansing” against the Kikuyu.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7166932.stm

He signed a pledge to institute Sharia Law, including banning Christianity.

And guess who is his cousin, visits him calls him and campaigned for him?

The Kenya Connection

By DANIEL JOHNSON
January 10, 2008

...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. Mr. Odinga himself is nominally an Anglican, yet he signed a document that refers to Islam throughout as “the one true religion” and denigrates Christians as “worshippers of the cross.”

What, you will be asking by now, what does any of this have to do with Barack Obama? Well, Mr. Obama’s father came from Kenya and his son is proud to call himself a Luo. His Kenyan relations boast that, even if they cannot get a Luo into the Kenyan presidential residence, they can look forward to a Luo in the White House.

Indeed, the connection may be even closer than a tribal one. Mr. Odinga even claims that Mr. Obama is his cousin, because the senator’s father was Mr. Odinga’s maternal uncle. Whether or not this true, the two men are friends and political allies.”

That document (which was produced by Odinga's opponent, Kibaki) claims to be a secret agreement Odinga signed with the leaders of Kenya's tiny Islamic community.

Even if it is real, and people who know better than I say there's a strong chance it's a forgery, it just means that Odinga signed a political deal with Muslims -- it doesn't mean he's a Muslim himself.

I've never said Odinga is a good guy. Odinga's Luo have tried to ethnically cleanse their rivals, the Kikuyu -- that's absolutely true. What isn't true is that it's a question of Islam vs. Christianity. Both the Luo and Kikuyu are overwhelmingly Christian.

SECRET CABINET PAPERS (OMG!...Obama’s first cousin’s father took orders from Soviets/Red Chinese!!!)

SECRET CABINET PAPERS

How Kenya’s best kept secret became a hotbed of insurgents

By John Kamau

Dateline: Saturday, December 12, 1964. At around 3 pm, just as Kenya turned into a republic, the newly sworn-in President Jomo Kenyatta’s convoy drove from State House, Nairobi to the flag-decked Thika Road to officially open what he described as “Kenya’s best kept secret” and Jamhuri Day’s “big surprise” – the so-called Lumumba Institute. He didn’t know it was a communist school of politics designed to topple him.

Forty years later, questions are still asked about how the new Vice President, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, managed to trick Kenyatta to approve a plot to topple him. It was a move that not only left top schemer Tom Mboya dazed but also confused Kenyatta’s inner circle — composed of Mr Mbiyu Koinange, Mr James Gichuru, and Dr Njoroge Mungai.

And when they realised what had happened they threw senior Chinese and Russian “spies” stationed at the institute out of the country. Others simply disappeared....

Here is a quote from an article by Dawne Allette at Baltimore Times on Kenya’s Ordingo in March08:

“Odinga also promised to reconcile Kenyans after the violence turned into ethnic problems, and forced about 600,000 from their homes. “You have seen the ugly face of ethnic confrontation in our country. I feel confident that the experience we have gone through has been a teacher and every one is going to ensure that this coalition does succeed.”

Now this from the guy whose goons killed about 1600 people when he lost the election originally, and UN leader Kofi Anon came to Kenya and brokered the deal to get him 50/50 power with President elect, who now has made him Prime Minister. Smooth talking dude.

Obama's Pal uses "Rape as a Weapon"

More brutal and gory details of the man Obama unequivocally supports. Obama is so busted. This is more than bad judgment,  this is scary. A Jacksonian who has done yeoman's work in substantiating Odinga's  nefarious Arab ties and his hand in the ongoing violence that has all of Kenya in its barbaric clutches. Inconceivable horror. Gang raping little girls and boys as many as ten times. That's just the tip of the iceberg.

Obama_odinga

Obama has backed Odinga unequivocally going so far as telling big media (out of TIME Magazine's Joe Klein here),

"Obama has had near-daily conversations with the U.S. Ambassador in Kenya or with opposition leader Raila Odinga. As of late this afternoon, before his rally in Rochester, N.H., Obama was trying to reach Kenyan President Kibaki."

And he still hasn't reached him I bet. More on Odinga and Obama's phone conversations here.

This is beyond bad judgment. This is just bad and this story is not going to go away no matter how desperately in love Obamedia is with the Christ child. Big media does not control information anymore. And Obama is culpable. Here I am -- an individual blogger getting all this terrible information on Odinga and the man running for POTUS is in the dark? Think about it.

Obama's bias for his fellow Luo was so blatant that a Kenya government spokesman denounced Obama during his visit as Raila's "stooge."

A Jacksonian sent me this stunning comment (with links)  on his post The other source of change in Kenyan politics made by one of his readers, mobysnny:

It's not getting reported in the media that the looting and burning of businesses in Kisumu was targeted to both Kikuyus and Kenyan Indians. The economy of Kenya is controlled by these two groups because they are Entrepreneurial. But Kenyan Indians rarely get involved in Kenyan politics, they do not vote by choice, yet the Luos in Kisumu do not like them, that's why their stores were getting burnt too.

Obama's boy.

I mentioned in my other comment about Luo supporters of Odinga abroad were telling each other to contact TV stations and spread about the violence in Kenya. Here is one sent by a Luo to Jerusalem Post.

I was shocked by the lies this man decided to tell the post. That is the reason we are seeing all this stories making Odinga and his supporters look like angels even as they kill people.

Can you believe these Luos abroad were telling their supporters in Kenya that William Ruto and Raila Odinga had been arrested immediately after the election results. Which was total lies. It was meant to incite ODM supporters in Kenya mainly Luos and Kalenjin (Ruto is a Kalenjin). That's another reason we were seeing the violence getting worse.

Supporters of Raila Odinga (BARAK OBAMAS COUSIN!!), the leading presidential challenger, rallied in Kibera, a slum near Nairobi.(According to the NY Times, this is a "rally")

Obama's Militant Muslim Brother Abongo Is Luo Activist

...

Barack Obama stands behind Kezia (stepmother) in a Kenyan family shot. Included in the photo is brother Abongo "Roy" Obama who is a Luo activist and a militant Muslim who argues that the black man must "liberate himself from the poisoning influences of European culture."

"Abongo's new lifestyle has left him lean and clear-eyed, and at the wedding, he looked so dignified in his black African gown with white trim and matching cap that so me of our guests mistook him for my father," Obama wrote in Dreams From My Father.

Barack Obama's cousin Raila Odinga is accused of ethnic cleansing and is currently battling for power in Kenya.

Barack has stated his support for Luo Opposition Leader in Kenya RaRaila Odinga (who signed a Shariah pact with Muslims and claims to be Obama's cousin) and is married to Ida Odinga. They have four children - two sons and two daughters. His oldest son, Fidel, is named after Fidel Castro.

THIS IS FROM THE SOB'S WEBSITE

"Barack Obama Is Not and Has Never Been a Muslim.

Obama never prayed in a mosque.

He has never been a Muslim, was not raised a Muslim, and is a committed Christian who attends the United Church of Christ.

OK, SO NOW THE SOB IS GOING TO TELL THE BIG LIE AND GET AWAY WITH IT?

HELL NO.

HE NEEDS TO BE FORCED TO ANSWER THE QUESTION ON WHETHER HE HAS EVER PRAYED IN A MOSQUE.

Was Obama Ever a Muslim?

“I’ve always been a Christian,” said Obama, focusing on his own personal lack of practice of Islam as a child to deny any connection to Islam. But Muslims do not see practice as key. For them, that he was born to a line of Muslim males makes him born a Muslim. Further, all children born with an Arabic name based on the H-S-N trilateral root (Hussein, Hassan, and others) can be assumed to be Muslim, so they will understand Obama’s full name, Barack Hussein Obama, to proclaim him a born Muslim.

More: family and friends considered him as a child to be Muslim. In “Obama Debunks Claim About Islamic School,” Nedra Pickler of the Associated Press wrote on January 24, 2007, that

Obama’s mother, divorced from Obama’s father, married a man from Indonesia named Lolo Soetoro, and the family relocated to the country from 1967-71. At first, Obama attended the Catholic school, Fransiskus Assisis, where documents showed he enrolled as a Muslim, the religion of his stepfather. The document required that each student choose one of five state-sanctioned religions when registering – Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Catholic or Protestant.

Asked about this, Obama communications director Robert Gibbs responded by indicating to Pickler that

he wasn’t sure why the document had Obama listed as a Muslim. “Senator Obama has never been a Muslim.”

Two months later, Paul Watson of the Los Angeles Times (available online in a Baltimore Sun reprint) reported that the Obama campaign had retreated from that absolute statement and instead issued a more nuanced one: “Obama has never been a practicing Muslim.” The Times looked into the matter further and learned more about his Indonesian interlude:

His former Roman Catholic and Muslim teachers, along with two people who were identified by Obama’s grade-school teacher as childhood friends, say Obama was registered by his family as a Muslim at both schools he attended. That registration meant that during the third and fourth grades, Obama learned about Islam for two hours each week in religion class.

The childhood friends say Obama sometimes went to Friday prayers at the local mosque. “We prayed but not really seriously, just following actions done by older people in the mosque. But as kids, we loved to meet our friends and went to the mosque together and played,” said Zulfin Adi. … Obama’s younger sister, Maya Soetoro, said in a statement released by the campaign that the family attended the mosque only “for big communal events,” not every Friday.

Recalling Obama’s time in Indonesia, the Times account contains quotes that Obama “went to the mosque,” and that he “was Muslim.”

Summarized, available evidence suggests Obama was born a Muslim to a non-practicing Muslim father and for some years had a reasonably Muslim upbringing under the auspices of his Indonesian step-father. At some point, he converted to Christianity. It appears false to state, as Obama does, “I’ve always been a Christian” and “I’ve never practiced Islam.” The campaign appears to be either ignorant or fabricating when it states that “Obama never prayed in a mosque.”-Daniel Pipes

NOW APPEARS OBAMA’S COMMUNIST MUSLIM COUSIN IS PM OF KENYA
(USES HIS STREET THUGS TO GAIN POWER)

Cabinet: Kibaki meets ministers

Story by NATION Team
Publication Date: 2008/04/01

Cabinet ministers have said they are ready to work with ODM leader Raila Odinga to implement the power-sharing deal signed in February, sources close to the meeting have revealed.

In the first formal Cabinet meeting since President Kibaki and the Prime Minister-designate signed the deal to end post-election violence, the ministers also agreed on the need to speed up the resettlement of displaced families.

They also challenged the police to beef up security and crack down on those threatening the refugees who are willing to return to their farms.

However, the 15 ministers said President Kibaki should not share executive authority with any other office. The President can consult on who should be in government but the final say on who should occupy which position should be left to him, sources privy to the talks said.

Determine size

Sources said the ministers wanted the President to determine the size and structure of the Cabinet and insisted that he should not be dictated to.

The team said it was ready to work with Mr Odinga, the Prime Minister-designate, but claimed that he was “a man under siege”.

According to the sources, the ministers said Mr Odinga was “a different man” when he consulted with the President but often appeared to be a changed person after consulting his party.

However, Mr Odinga’s spokesman, Mr Salim Lone, said in an interview with the Nation that the party was ready to meet the Government coalition to resolve the impasse over the Cabinet.

He said ODM had a clear perspective on what the accord signed between President Kibaki and Mr Odinga entailed.

The accord was signed on February 28, to end post-election violence in which over 1,200 people were killed after a dispute over the presidential election results.

The deal also provided for sharing of power between the President’s party, PNU and ODM.

And while addressing the Africa economic minister’s conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on Monday, Mr Benjamin Mkapa said the power- sharing deal signed by President Kibaki and Mr Odinga provided the framework for peace.

The former Tanzanian president was a member of the team of eminent Africans that negotiated the deal.

“I don’t think there is a Cabinet crisis since they are already agreed on the framework,” said Mr Mkapa.

Interesting, as the beat goes on... The reason the Communist/marxism can coexist with Islam as the only religion is that Communism is atheism, so what do they care if a false religion is present, as long as it agrees with their evil practices. This family has a history of deception.
