Barack Obama’s Socialist and Communist Connection in Kenya

Barack Obama is well-connected to the top-tier of Kenyan politics – Kenya being the home of his Arab-African Muslim father.

In January 2008, Raila Odinga lost his bid for the Presidency of Kenya to encumbent Mwai Kibaki. Raila Odinga is at the least a socialist in the Orange Democrat party, he says he is Barack Obama’s cousin, and the most distinguishing mark the would-be-Kenyan-President made, was his agreement with the National Muslim Leaders Forum (NAMLEF), to turn over a specified portion of Kenya to Shariah Law IF he won the election, which he did not.

Obama the father, admired Odinga the father, and supported Odinga the father’s politics – which were decidedly communist.

Obama the son, following in the footsteps of his Dad, Obama the father, campaigned in Kenya, for Raila Odinga in 2006.

The ties between Barack’s father, Obama Sr. and Raila Odinga’s father, Oginga Odinga, are in written form in the East Africa Journal, direct from the words of Obama the father.

The following is excerpted from Greg Ransom at PrestoPundit, referencing the connections Obama the son chose to leave out of his own writings about his father:

A bit of research at the library reveals the answers about Barack Obama’s father and his father’s convictions which Obama withholds from his readers. A first hint comes from authors E. S. Atieno Odhiambo and David William Cohen in their book The Risks of Knowledge (Ohio U. Press, 2004).

On page 182 of their book they describe how Barack Obama’s father, a Harvard trained economist, attacked the economic proposals of pro-Western ‘third way” leader Tom Mboya from the socialist left, siding with communist-allied leader Oginga Odinga, in a paper Barack Obama’s father wrote for the East Africa Journal. As Odhiambo and Cohen write, “The debates [over economic policy] pitted .. Mboya against .. Oginga Odinga and radical economists Dharam Ghai and Barrack Obama, who critiqued the document for being neither African nor socialist enough.”

The Barack Obama currently running for the Presidency of the United States supported Raila Odinga for the Presidency of his own family’s country – Kenya. Yet, Raila Odinga signed documents intended to enslave some citizens of the REPUBLIC of Kenya within Islam, under Shariah Law.

Here’s how Islam would have worked in Kenya, given the opportunity:

The following is a partial transcription of the agreement between Odinga and the National Muslim Leaders. (In a previous post, there was a link to this document at Evangelical Alliance of Kenya website, but this link is no longer available. You can see a screen shot of the agreement in this video:

PURPOSE: To establish a lasting relationship between Hon. Raila Amolo Odinga, hereinafter referred to as The Candidate, and the National Muslim Leaders, herinafter referred to as The Leaders.

This MOU [Memorandum of Understanding] states as follows:

WHEREAS The Candidate — who recognizes Islam as the only true religion — is seeking to become the next President of the Republic of Kenya;

WHEREAS The Leaders recognize The Candidate as the only presidential candidate who has the interests of the Kenyan Muslim community at heart;

There are more “WHEREAS’ and numerous “The Parties agree…, among which you’ll see this:”

(iii) That the Leaders will work hard to ensure that all (or at least the majority) of Kenyan Muslim faithful vote overwhelmingly for The Candidate at the 2007 General Election.

(v) That The Candidate, when, InshaAllah, he becomes President of Kenya will:

a) …In addition, while freedom of worship will be upheld at the JIMBO LA PWANI, the Council of Islamic leaders shall be permitted to have an oversight role to monitor activities of ALL other religions and any applications for religious activities and institutions will require their approval. They shall have the right to deny approval to cults and other evil practices.

b) Within 6 months re-write the Constitution of Kenya to recognize Shariah as the only true law sanctioned by the Holy Quran for Muslim declared regions.

c) With immediate effect dismiss the Commissioner of Police who has allowed himself to be used by heathens and Zionists to oppress the Kenyan Muslim community.

d) and e) intentionally skipped

f) No Muslim residing in Kenya whether a citizen, visitor or relative of any of the above shall be subjected to any process involving the laws of a foreign country and in particular any Muslim arrested for or suspected of Terrorism or any other International crime shall only be tried within the boarders of Kenya and shall be granted a competent lawyer of his/her choice at the expense of the Government.

g) Within 1 year facilitate the establishment of a Shariah court in every Kenyan divisional headquarters.

h) Popularize Islam, the only true religion, in the Coast and North Eastern Regions by ordering every primary school in Kenya in the regions to conduct daily Madrassa classes.

h) Impose a total ban on open-air gospel crusades by worshippers of the cross in the Coast and North Eastern regions.

i), j), k) l), and m) intentionally skipped

n) Impose an immediate ban on women’s public dressing styles that are considered immoral and offensive to the Muslim faith in the Muslim regions of the Coastal and North Eastern Regions. This ban will apply to Muslims and non-Muslims alike, in these regions and will include all visitors whether domestic or foreign tourists.

It goes on…and then is signed by Abdullahi Abdi (Chairman) and Hon. Eng. Raila Amollo Odinga.

All Americans should be taking a very hard look at Senator Obama. His father was Arab, Muslim and Socialist, leaning Communist. Senator Obama has not answered questions about his support for Odinga, or explained his support for Odinga, or acknowledged that Odinga supported Shariah Law in Kenya.

It’s all quiet on the Obama front.
