An al- Reuters spin, no doubt ..... but you get the point.
Although Ed Lasky levels some serious charges and makes a strong case against Obama based on his questionable alliances in America., IMAO, nothing gives a clearer indication into what drives Obama than his tacit support for the brutal opposition leader Odinga in Kenya.. Aligned with Islamists, Raila Odinga has signed a pact to institute sharia when he takes power after the current bloody coup.
Odinga is a Marxist who reportedly has made a pact with a hard-line Islamic group in Kenya to establish Shariah courts throughout the country. He has also vowed to ban booze and pork and impose Muslim dress codes on women -- moves favored by Obama's brother. (MORE HERE)
He is tearing through the country using murder and rape as his weapons of choice. Justice Minister Martha Karua tsaid Odinga's group (Orange Democratic Movement has planned to carry out systematic ethnic cleansing.This is a dangerous man in what has up until now been a pretty stable country on an unstable continent.
His 'opposition party' is opposed to democracy and free elections. Refusing to accept the result of the national election, Odinga will break the country, beat, "cleanse" rape until this depraved savage gets the power. Raila Odinga rejected a presidential invitation for talks.
The left wing media has been played by brilliantly by Odinga - this is part of his strategy. Dick Morris helped orchestrate that when Odinga hired him. ODM election strategy was overseen by Dick Morris
That Obama suports Odinga unequivocally speaks volumes . What a dark glimpse into the soul of Barack Hussein.
And he's been weak on Islamic terror:
Shamelessly, al-Zawahri encouraged blacks to join al-Qaida's holy war against the American "oppressor," and sacrifice their blood against "injustice" like the "struggler and martyr" Malcolm X.
He noted that the Muslim civil-rights leader condoned "violent" methods to help win equality for blacks, while implying that blacks today are still oppressed.
"I want blacks in America to know that when we wage jihad in Allah's path, we aren't waging jihad to lift oppression from the Muslims only," al-Zawahri said. "We are waging jihad to lift oppression from all mankind."
Some might argue that Obama shouldn't dignify such enemy agitprop with a response. But as the brother of a black convert (Roy), Obama must know that Islam is flourishing among African-Americans, even since 9/11, and that dozens of converts have been arrested in terrorism cases from Los Angeles to Miami.
The trend is dangerous because it plays right into the hands of al-Qaida, which is trying to lower its Arab profile by recruiting African-Americans for future attacks. That's why al-Qaida leaders like al-Zawahri are inviting blacks to convert to Islam and join them in taking revenge on a nation that they say enslaved their ancestors and continues to "oppress" them.
Obama could have stood up and blunted the effect of such a dastardly appeal by saying he's proof positive blacks aren't oppressed. But he didn't.
He could have argued that the civil-rights battle was won through peaceful resistance, and pointed out that al-Zawahri left out of his racial history lesson the fact that Muslim slave traders sold Africans into bondage. But he didn't.
Obama also could have pointed out that hundreds of African-Americans were murdered by Muslim terrorists on 9/11, and that we are all in this battle against Islamic terrorism together. And he could have praised all the brave black GIs fighting overseas to protect Americans back home. But he didn't.
Obama could have warned fellow African-Americans to ignore the phony pitches of radical Islamists trying to recruit them to a traitorous cause. Or he could have simply told Osama's No. 2 to go pound sand up his nightgown.
But he didn't. He stayed silent. Why?
Too many Americans already suspect that Democrats secretly sympathize with al-Qaida and think America had 9/11 coming. That's what Obama's spiritual adviser seems to suggest. (More here)
UPDATE: OBAMA'S HALF BROTHER IS A RADICAL ISLAMIST: hat tip Eric
Obama's older brother still lives there. Abongo "Roy" Obama is a Luo activist and a militant Muslim who argues that the black man must "liberate himself from the poisoning influences of European culture." He urges his younger brother to embrace his African heritage. (More here.)
Abongo Obama also argued that the black man must "liberate himself from the poisoning influences of European culture," Obama wrote. "But the magic of his laughter remains, and we can disagree without rancor." (Chicago Sun Times)
