President Obama is NOT a Muslim, whatever else he may be. But he needs this kind of story like a hole in the head:
The Kenyan grandmother of US President Barack Obama who was on Haj pilgrimage to Makkah has said that she prayed for the American leader to convert to Islam, a newspaper said on Thursday.
“I prayed for my grandson Barack to convert to Islam,” said Haja Sarah Omar, 88, in an interview with Al-Watan daily held in Jeddah after she had performed Haj.
The paper said that Haja Omar was in Saudi Arabia on pilgrimage along with her son, Obama’s uncle Saeed Hussein Obama, and four of her grandchildren as guests of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques. …
Faisal Ambuya, one of Obama’s cousins, who embraced Islam at the hands of the Haja said, “My grandmother is very much interested in calling non-Muslims to Islam and I learned about Islam from her.”
“When I will return to my village I will tell the villagers about the strength of Islam,” she said.
Obama’s uncle Saeed said he never thought he would be able to perform Haj this year. “I am very much delighted because I could perform the pilgrimage. I thank Allah and then King Abdullah for hosting us in the Haj.”
Musa Ismail, son of Obama’s maternal aunt, who acted as both spokesman and translator for the family, said he was a student at the Madinah Islamic University and felt that spiritually he belonged to Saudi Arabia.
The young Barack Obama posed with his grandmother, apparently in Kenya:
In principle, the fact that a substantial part of Obama’s family is Muslim is neither here nor there. If Obama were a successful President, no one would care. But given that many millions of Americans view him as a kind of alien presence as a result of the policies he has tried to impose, Obama must wish his Kenyan relatives would fade quietly away for the balance of his term in office.
