When Raila Odinga lost the presidential election last week (12/27) to Mwai Kibaki, he claimed the vote was rigged, whereupon his tribal followers went on murderous rampages such as in the town of Eldoret, where on New Years Day dozens of people were burned to death in a church set on fire... Throughout Kenya, hundreds of people have been politically murdered. . . . Raila has now made a deal for support from the Soviets' successors as world-champion enemies of the West and democratic freedoms. . . . It pledges the support of Kenyan Moslems for Raila's election. In return, as President of Kenya, Raila agrees . . . 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. Within one year facilitate the establishment of a Shariah court in every Kenyan divisional headquarters. [Note: everywhere in Kenya, not just in "Muslim declared regions."]
And here is the biggest non-surprise: Raila Odinga has, in his own words, a "close personal friendship" with Barrack Hussein Obama Junior. When Obama went to Kenya in August of 2006, he was hosted by Raila and spoke in praise of him at rallies in Nairobi... Obama’s bias for his fellow Luo was so blatant that a Kenya government spokesman denounced Obama during his visit as Raila’s “stooge.”
Kenya is destined to turn into an African version of Talibanistan.
* "Popularize Islam, the only true religion... by ordering every primary school in Kenya in the regions to conduct daily Madrassa classes."
* "Impose a total ban on open-air gospel crusades by worshippers of the cross..."
* "Outlaw gospel programs... on KBC, the National Broadcaster."
* "Impose a total ban on the public consumption of alcoholic beverages..."
* "Impose an immediate ban on women's public dressing styles that are considered immoral and offensive to the Muslim faith..."
Obama's friend, in other words, is setting the stage for a transformation of Kenya into a Muslim state, similar to that which governed Afghanistan during the days of the Taliban.
Note that the mainstream media hasn't reported a single word regarding the true nature of Kenya's unrest -- nor Obama's involvement with Odinga and the onset of a Taliban-style Sharia law in Kenya.
On 30 November 2007: Evangelical churches and some Muslim leaders want the contentious memorandum of understanding signed between presidential candidate Raila Odinga and an Islamic lobby group rescinded.
On Thursday, another group of Muslim leaders and scholars, including officials of the Supreme Council of Muslims of Kenya (SUPKEM), opposed the pact, saying those who signed it were not the official voice of the faith community.
Kenya is a democracy, they said, where the rights and responsibilities of all citizens regardless of religion, ethnicity, race or gender are guaranteed by the Constitution.
"It would be dangerous for our young democracy if any group that felt aggrieved were to sidestep the legal process and enter into secret MoUs with individual leaders. Such secret agreements pose a serious threat to constitutionalism and the rule of law."
Obama is Odinga’s paternal first cousin.
On Doctor Bulldog and Ronin Blog: Some Muslims would celebrate a victory of Obama by attacking someone or each other. If he loses the election Muslims in some locations will riot and attack someone or each other. Obama finding himself stuck between Islam, Kenyan tribes and anything else really will not hinder his effectiveness except regionally. Radical Muslims will always hate whoever sits in the White House.
