President Obama’s family in Kenya has used a charitable foundation accepting donations from U.S. and European supporters to fund scholarships that send children to Wahhabist Shariah schools in Saudi Arabia, according to the translation of an interview of President Obama’s cousin.
The Sarah Obama Benevolent Fund Institute, also known as the Mama Sarah Obama Children Foundation, which operates out of Kenya, receives 90 percent of its funds from U.S. and European donors, World Net Daily reports. The institute was founded by the Kenyan Obama family, who saw their fortunes soar when Barack Obama was elected U.S. president.
In an interview with Al-Jazeera TV, President Obama’s first cousin Musa Ismail Obama said that the Saudi royal family has developed a close relationship with the Obamas in their village of Kogelo, West Kenya.
With the help of the Saudis, the Obamas are using their influence to work to transform Christian Kenya into an Islamic state bound by Shariah law. In the TV interview, Musa said the Saudi royal family invited the Obamas to join them on the Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca.
The Kenyan project is inspired by President Obama’s call for expanding education in the United States, according to Musa, but with an emphasis on increasing Islam’s influence in Kenya.
The Mama Sarah Obama Children Foundation solicits funds from donors in the U.S. and Europe with the claim that donations go to help disadvantaged orphans and children with HIV.
In actuality, most of the funds are used to provide scholarships to study Shariah at Wahhabist centers in Saudi Arabia, according to WND.
The schools are Salafi schools that teach a radical form of Islam that calls for literal interpretation of the Quran and is strongly associated with modern terrorism. “The majority of course is Shariah schools,” Musa said, “because my connections in the institutions is with Shariah schools.”
“It’s all a jihadi Kenyan scam,” said scholar Walid Shoebat, who translated the interview from its original Arabic.
Musa said that President Obama’s favorite uncle, Sayid Hussein Obama, was the choice of both branches of the family to keep the president informed about goings-on in Kenya.
According to Saudi media, Sayid Obama is associated with the Muslim World League, which is linked to al-Qaida.
The same day the story about the Obama family broke, Internet sites were also carrying a story about the gold ring President Obama has worn since college, which is inscribed in Arabic with “There is no God but Allah,” the first part of the Muslim declaration of faith.
According to a recent Pew poll, 17 percent of voters believe Obama is a Muslim “despite the fact,” as the Huffing-and-Puffing-ton Post put it, that he says he is Christian.
Since the beginning of his presidency, Obama’s actions — and occasional slips of the tongue — have made a strong case for him being a secret Muslim. The ring and his family’s activities virtually seal the case, and they both help explain his actions in the Middle East.
Not that it will matter with Obama’s supporters.
