In 2008, Grandmama Obama was reported to be a Christian:
From AP, March 5, 2008:
"In the world of today, children have different religions from their parents," she said. She, too, is a Christian.
In 2009 and again this year, she went to Mecca for the hajj, which Christians don't do.
Why the deception? And who was behind it? AP? The Obama camp? Someone else? What was its purpose?
In any case, now she is unsatisfied with her grandson's unstinting solicitude for the Islamic agenda, and wants him to convert outright:
"Barack Obama's grandmother 'prays he converts to Islam,'" from the Telegraph, November 25:
Barack Obama's Kenyan grandmother has said she prayed for the US president to convert to Islam, according to reports.
Sarah Omar, 88, who was on hajj pilgrimage to Mecca, told the Al-Qatan Saudi daily: "I prayed for my grandson Barack to convert to Islam".
The paper said that Ms Omar was in Saudi Arabia on pilgrimage along with her son, Mr Obama's uncle Saeed Hussein Obama, and four of her grandchildren.
Ms Omar told the newspaper that she could only discuss hajj matters and would not comment on Mr Obama's politics.
The family appeared to have been hosted by the Saudi government for hajj. Saeed thanked King Abdullah for his "kind hospitality," the paper said....
That's worth a bow.
