BREAKING: Obama Campaigned For Islamic Law In Kenya

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: World Net Daily is reporting that as recently as 2006, Barack Hussein Obama raised money and campaigned for a Kenyan presidential candidate who promised to enact Islamic Shariah Law once elected. This revelation puts Obama in a very compromised position with Islamic powers, seeking to effect a Muslim takeover, inside the African nation. Unlike his relationship with former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, his actions in this case amount to more than just a mere association, but rather a political "partnership" Obama has made with an Islamic Kenyan radical. To make matters worse, by raising money, and campaigning for such a radical, it gives the clear appearance of endorsement for this man and what he represents - mainly Shariah Law. News of this comes as Obama is just a breathtaking two weeks away from becoming the next president of the United States...
( - A controversial Kenyan leader for whom Sen. Barack Obama not only campaigned, but raised almost $1 million during the run-up to that nation's 2007 presidential election, had concluded a written agreement with Muslim leaders stipulating that, if they delivered him the Muslim vote, he would in turn, once elected, convert Kenya into an Islamic state governed by Shariah law, protect terrorists from prosecution, and effectively ban Christianity.

WND documented earlier that Obama supported and campaigned for Kenya opposition leader Raila Odinga during a 2006 senatorial "fact-finding" trip to Kenya, and subsequently reported on documents revealing Obama's part in raising almost $1 million for Odinga.

Accord to a BBC report, Odinga says he is Obama's cousin, specifically that the presidential candidate's father was Odinga's maternal uncle. Obama's father, a Kenyan, married his American mother while both were attending the university of Hawaii.

Odinga took over the office of prime minister in Kenya after his campaign called for protests of an election he lost by more than 200,000 votes to incumbent Mwai Kibaki. The resulting violence by marauding Muslim mobs left 1,000 people dead, hundreds of thousands displaced from their homes and 800 Christian churches damaged or destroyed. No Islamic mosques were damaged, however.

Among the worst attacks occurred when several dozen women and children sought refuge in a Christian church which mobs burned down on top of them.

WND has reported that the violence appears to have been part of Odinga's campaign strategy. Former members of Odinga's Orange Democratic Movement party, or ODM, claim Obama did not call on Odinga to drop his voter-fraud campaign or withdraw from his pursuit of the presidency even after he lost and the violence erupted....

On a side note; Obama campaigned for Odinga during a senatorial "fact-finding" trip to Kenya. Was any part of this trip funded by taxpayers? If so, is it legal for somebody to use taxpayer dollars to campaign for a foreign candidate in a foreign election?
