Obama Interfering in Kenyan politics—Resident Barack Hussein Obama ordered the US Ambassador to Kenya, Michael Ranneberger, to support the Kenyan constitutional changes proposed by Obama's cousin and Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga. In fact, Obama sent Vice President Joe Biden to Nairobi on June 8, 2010 to encourage Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki to support the new constitution.
Biden brought promises of American investment in the East African Common Market (the precursor of the African Union [which thus far includes Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi], and which, ultimately, will be modeled after the European Union with a common currency), and the possibility of a contingency of US troops to protect Kenya's borders from Somalia. (Many Kenyans fear that the al-Qadea backed al-Shabab revolutionaries who are attempting to overthrow the US-backed Somalia government will spill into Kenya. Even more, the Christian population is watching a steady stream of Somalia refugees stream across the porous border into Kenya. Almost all of them are Muslim.)
And, of course, the caveat—a $23 million "grant" to ten groups in Kenya that is being used to bribe members of the Kenyan parliament to vote "yes" on adopting the new constitution which the media in Kenya claims is supported by 62% of the Kenyan people. The Obama grant is illegal under the Logan Act and under the Siljander Amendment which bans the use of foreign assistance funds to lobby for or against abortion.
Which means, that was the second violation of the Logan Act committed by Obama. In July, 2008—four and a half months before the 2008 President election—Obama visited Iraq and asked Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari to delay an agreement with the Bush-43 Administration on US troop deployment and withdrawals until after the election because he did not want to be stuck with an agreement made by Bush "...in a state of weakness and political confusion." Over the next few weeks back on the campaign trail, Obama openly bragged about hampering the foreign policy of the United States when he said: "My concern is that the Bush Administration, in a weakened state politically, ends up trying to rush an agreement that in some ways might be binding to the next administration, whether it's my administration or Senator McCain's...The foreign minister agreed that the next administration should not be bound by an agreement that's currently made." Clearly Obama would not openly violate US law and expend that much political capital in order to keep McCain's options open—particularly when McCain agreed with Bush on this one. Obama was acting on his own behalf with foreknowledge that he would be the 44th President of the United States—almost five months before the election.
The new proposed constitution (the third one since Kenya became an independent nation) strengthens Sharia law (which was introduced with the second constitution in 1997) by establishing an inferior Sharia court system to handle disputes between Muslims. Making Sharia courts equal to the traditional court system is something the majority Christian population fear, and thus, oppose. Forty-five percent of all Kenyans are Christians, with Catholicism representing the faith of 33% of the population. Christianity is the majority religion in Kenya. It should be noted that only about 10% of the Kenyan population is Muslim. Hinduism and Baha'i are each followed by about 1% of the population. Roughly 40% of the population either practices no religion, or they practice the ancestral religions which places reverence on their ancestors, or natural phenomenon. Al Gore and the eco-wackos that worship the Earth goddess Gaia would feel comfortable in that surrounding. Thus, while the international media claims that 62% of the Kenyan people favor the new constitution, only about 10% do—and that's because they are all Muslims. The only way the new constitution can be enacted is by bribing the legislators to vote against their nation's best interests.
In fact, according to Judge Mudhar Ahmed who heads Nairobi's Kadhis Court (one of 17 courts in Kenya that administer Sharia law to Kenya's Muslim minority), he is now seeing something in Kenya he never saw before. He calls it Islamophobia. Since the 2008 massacre of over 1,000 Christians by Islam extremists, the Christian majority has grown to fear the Muslim minority. They had no objections when Sharia law was introduced in the 1997 Constitution since it affected only the Muslim minority. Under that constitution, the non-Muslims continued to be judged by the justice system created by England when Kenya was a British colony. Sharia law, based on the Qu'ran, was added for the benefit the followers of Islam. (The jurisdiction of the Kadhis courts is limited to matters concerning civil law, such as marriages, divorces, inheritance, and grievances between one Muslim and another. They do not deal with criminal law. Kadhis courts have far less judicial power than Kenya's traditional courts.)
The Christian majority and the non-Muslim sects which view the Muslims as a growing threat to the stability of Kenya not only want that section in the new constitution dealing with Sharia courts removed, they also want Sharia courts banned in Kenya. The argument they have launched in Parliament is that Kenya is a secular, not theological, nation and that Muslims should not receive special privileges not afforded to the rest of the population. Muslim leaders in Kenya insist that the tactics being used by the Christians to deny their community Sharia rights undermines their religious beliefs. Judge Ahmed, one of the jurists who is attempting to convert the entire legal system to Sharia law, said the Christians "...are creating hatred between Muslims and Christians."
The Muslims argued that Sharia courts should be equal to Kenya's traditional judicial system. A provision in the new constitution, which will be voted on in Parliament on Aug. 4, 2010, will make the Sharia courts equal to the traditional courts of Kenya. If Obama and Odinga are successful in bribing enough lawmakers in the Kenyan parliament, ultimately, non-Muslims could, and would, be tried in the Kadhis courts under Sharia law. Muslims, by the way, are currently fighting that same battle in Europe where they now represent about 10% of the population in the European Union.
The Muslim population in Europe is expected to double by 2020, growing to roughly 103 million throughout the traditionally Christian countries on the continent. While the Muslim population in England is only about 5%, it has five Sharia courts and one Sharia bank. In the 27 nations of the EU, Muslims comprise about 10% of the population. Studies indicate the current Muslim population in Europe is roughly 23 million, with 1.6 to 2 million new Muslim immigrants arriving in the EU each year. While a USAF study suggests that Muslims growth in Europe is not that great, and that Muslims will make up only about 20% of Europe's population by 2050, studies commissioned by several organizations in Europe suggest that if Muslim migration is not stopped, by 2050, Muslims will outnumber non-Muslims in Europe and, without firing a shot, they will conquer the legislatures and the courts of every nation in Europe.The self-interest of the money-blinded legislators of Kenya are apparently no different than the self-interest of the politicians in the United States, who take the money of the princes of industry and the barons of banking and business with one hand as they take the legislation the lobbyists of the money barons have already written and hurriedly enact it so they can—as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi so aptly put it—find out what's inside the bills they blindly enacted. And once again, true to himself at least, Barack Hussein Obama's actions in helping his cousin bribe the Kenyan Parliament into surrendering their nation to Sharia law, affirms his words in Dreams From My Father: "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."
