Prospect of Obama victory raises fears of Islamic persecution in Kenya


I assure you, if Obama wins, the Islamic influence here & abroad will be emboldened. We shall be in GREATER danger of terrorists attacks! Don't count on Obama to take quick action to punish terrorists. He would prefer to negotiate & chat across a table! Yeah, let'as negotiate with Hitler back then, watch who will get conned. The following excerpts from worldnetdaily

Democrat backed leader allied with Muslims promoting Islamic law

NAIROBI, Kenya – Sen. Barack Obama is positioned to easily win the presidential election, former U.S. Rep. Walter Fauntroy told participants in Kenya's National Prayer Breakfast at the Safari Park Hotel in Nairobi in June.

Fauntroy – an African-American noted as the first congressman to represent the District of Columbia in 100 years and a founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus – said an Obama victory would make Kenya the most important nation in the world, as the place where the first U.S. black president "is to come from," elected "to teach the world how to live in the 21st century."

Not all present necessarily felt as enthusiastic at the prospect of an Obama presidency.

The prayer breakfast was attended by Kenya's President Mwai Kibaki, Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka, both of the Kikuyu tribe, and newly-appointed Prime Minister Raila Odinga, a Luo tribesman. Obama supported Odinga's challenge to Kibaki for the presidency when the Illinois Democrat visited Kenya on a U.S. Senate "fact-finding" mission in 2006.

Many Kikuyu politicians quietly express concerns that an Obama win in the 2008 U.S. presidential election could reverse power in Kenya, in favor of Luo tribesman such as Odinga, a perennial presidential challenger of Kikuyu presidential candidates.

WND has also reported Odinga signed a memorandum of understanding with Muslims in Kenya prior to the December 2007 election in an effort to win Muslim support of his candidacy.

In the post-election violence, an estimated 800 Christian churches were damaged by mobs, while not a single mosque was harmed.

About 85 percent of all Kenyans are considered Christian, with fewer than 10 percent Muslim.
