Few pay attention to the common agendas shared by Boko Haram (the terrorist group that has kidnapped over 200 Nigerian schoolgirls) and the non-profit organizations ran by the Obama family. The primary goals of both is to eradicate western education in Africa; the evidence is overwhelming.
To the Hausa Muslims in northern Nigeria, the word “Boko” is a code word for “Western Education” and “Haram” means “forbidden”, which translates to “Western education is forbidden”. Prior to his death, Boko Haram founder Mohammed Yusuf gave a Lecture in the state of Yobe in which he answered a question about why Boko (Western education) was prohibited by saying:
“It’s the study in schools established by missionaries and this includes: the curriculum prescribed since kindergarten through high school and colleges, to national Service.”
This is precisely the Obama family’s agenda in Kenya. As Shoebat.com has revealed, President Obama’s cousin Musa Ismail Obama may demonstrate this better than any other Obama family member. Al-Arab Newspaper interviewed Musa about his efforts in spreading the same brand of Islam that Boko Haram seeks to spread. The headline of the article reads, Scholars in Kenya Call Their Brethren to Spread Islam and Teach Arabic (translated). It further states:
Muslims [in Kenya] suffer from the monumental Christianization aided by Zionist expansionism that infiltrates the nation.
Musa was photographed for the article on the sidelines of the inauguration ceremony of World University Ruff in Nairobi, a school that teaches Islamic fundamentalism and rejects western education.
Shoebat.com also revealed that it was Musa, who during an interview with Al-Jazeera in Qatar exposed the foundation bearing the name of Barack’s grandmother – the Mama Sarah Obama Foundation (MSOF). In the interview, Musa confessed that the MSOF accepts western donations under faulty premises (helping orphaned children with AIDS) and then uses those funds for scholarships to send Kenyan students to extremist Wahhabist schools in Saudi Arabia. In a shocking admission, Musa explained how there were so many students that the Saudi schools couldn’t accommodate all of them and that Musa himself had to manage the overflow by sending them into Qatar.
Musa also stated during his Al-Jazeera interview that he aided refugees in the Dadaab refugee camp in northern Kenya. As Shoebat.com has reported, Dadaab has become infested with al-Shabaab terrorists from Somalia.
President Obama’s uncle Sayyid is also a key figure in the spread of Islam. It was Musa who identified Sayyid as Barack’s preferred conduit of communication to and from his Kenyan family. It was Sayyid who was captured on video stating that his whole family is Muslim. Of course, Shoebat.com has also done extensive research on the role of Barack’s brother Malik Obama, who works as an Executive Secretary of the Islamic Da’Wa Organization (IDO) under the control of Sudan’s Omar al-Bashir. Like Boko Haram, the agenda of the IDO is to spread wahhabist Islam and reject western education.
This is why Boko Haram kidnapped schoolgirls.
Of all the Obamas, it is Malik who may have the closest link to terrorism in his capacity as an arm of al-Bashir.
In an explosive declaration made by a Franco Majok, a Christian activist during an interview with Fox News, Boko Haram’s origins can be found in the Sudan, which has been led by al-Bashir since long before Boko Haram was founded.
As reported extensively by Shoebat.com, al-Bashir is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) for crimes against humanity and leads a country that is on the U.S. State Department list of State Sponsors of Terrorism. Al-Bashir is also Malik Obama’s boss.
According to Majok, who works on the ground in Nigeria:
“The [founders] of Boko Haram trained in Khartoum [Sudan] with Usama bin Laden and then they were sent to Nigeria.”
If Boko Haram’s founders trained with bin Laden, it would have been between 1992-1996. One of al-Bashir’s henchmen at that time was a man named Abubaker Ahmed Al Shingieti, who has since gained positions of prominence in the U.S., as reported by Shoebat.com. Al Shingieti was a Political Affairs Director and a Secretary General for al-Bashir’s External Communications Council. Today, Al Shingieti resides in the U.S. and sits on the Board of Trustees at the Hartford Seminary and serves as a Regional Director for the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), a Muslim Brotherhood front.
In a 1994 interview, Al Shingieti discussed Sudan’s ‘ghost houses’ or “people’s camps” that were used to train Muslims to become Mujahideen to “fight infidels”. This squares with the claims of Majok.
In his interview, Majok explained that a big reason for Nigerian Muslims ending up in Sudan has to do with the hajj or pilgrimage to Mecca. Sudan serves as a gateway for these fundamentalist pilgrims. After leaving Mecca, many of these Muslims didn’t have the means to get all the way back to Nigeria and remained in Sudan, where they were trained before being sent back to Nigeria as part of Boko Haram. This reality today validates putting Sudan on the terror list in 1993 after it was learned that one-third of the suspects in the first World Trade Center attack were Sudanese citizens, as Shoebat.com reported.
Reports indicate that Boko Haram founder Mohammed Yusuf, was receiving funds from al-Bashir’s Sudan as far back as the 1990’s. Yusuf died in Nigerian custody in 2009 after an intense battle. He was replaced by his deputy, Abubakar Muhammad Shekau, who was injured in the battle and reportedly fled to Sudan only to resurface as Boko Haram’s leader in Nigeria. It is Shekau who has taken credit for the recent schoolgirl kidnappings.
Shekau’s Islamic vision includes a resurrection of what’s known as the Borno Empire, which includes Sudan as well as Nigeria.
If the Obama administration is serious about rescuing the kidnapped girls, perhaps it should commission Malik – who has essentially served as his brother’s unofficial ambassador, as revealed by Shoebat.com – to negotiate with al-Bashir and Boko Haram for their release.
The African Union (AU), to which Nigeria belongs, refuses to acknowledge the ICC indictment of al-Bashir and declared that it will not help to arrest him. To illustrate how Muslim Brotherhood-friendly the AU is, Egypt was suspended from the continental body for removing Mohammed Mursi from power last year.
Perhaps more confounding than Nigeria’s AU membership is al-Bashir’s entry into the country last year for the AU Summit. Al-Bashir was then allowed to quickly leave the country when protesters gathered to call for his arrest by Nigerian authorities. Reports suggest that al-Bashir abruptly left to escape arrest but it strains credulity that Nigeria’s government didn’t know he was there.
It is known that al-Bashir’s Sudan harbored bin Laden in the 1990’s and that al-Bashir does indeed fund warlords to do his bidding. One such example is Joseph Kony, whom the Obama administration has been targeting since the infamous Kony 2012 campaign. Yet, the very same Obama administration that targets Kony wants to ease relations with al-Bashir and remove Sudan from the State Sponsor of Terrorism list.
The geopolitical situation in Nigeria is also very similar to that of Sudan. South Sudan is a new country and is largely Christian. To its north sits Al-Bashir’s Muslim Sudan. For years, al-Bashir has funded Kony’s heinous efforts to terrorize Christians in the south and in neighboring Uganda. As in Sudan, Boko Haram operates in northern Nigeria and seeks to Islamize the entire country. Again, this fits the Omar al-Bashir model.
When these realities in Nigeria are put in the proper context, the more culpable entity behind the Nigerian schoolgirls being kidnapped by Boko Haram very well could be Sudan and al-Bashir. The Obama administration, however – as is the case with Kony – does not mention Sudan. In fact, Obama tends to find more culpability with the Nigerian government for the atrocities committed by Boko Haram.
Last year, while in Lagos, Nigeria as reported by Shoebat.com, Barack Obama fielded a question about terrorism in Nigeria during a town hall. Obama began his response by referring to the ‘so called’ war on terror while flashing a subtle middle finger. He then proceeded to say:
“It is my strong belief that terrorism is more likely to emerge and take root where countries are not delivering for their people and where their sources of conflict and underlying frustrations that have not been adequately dealt with.”
Of course, this line of thinking actually helps terrorists by creating the perception that Muslim fundamentalists commit acts of terror because they’re disadvantaged and lashing out because they’re impoverished and disillusioned. It’s a premise akin to giving a fire more oxygen and has been used in Europe for years. In the 2005 Muslim riots in France, dozens of cars being set ablaze and it was all blamed on impoverished Muslim youths.
At about the 9:00 mark, Obama blames the terrorist problem in neighboring Mali on the government there for not “reaching out” enough. He then says that “responsiveness and governance and democracy” become “defense mechanisms against terrorism” before saying he doesn’t seek a “military solution to these problems”. As Boko Haram and other terrorists were committing horrendous atrocities, Obama advocated for more government programs instead of actually killing terrorists.
A newer Boko Haram splinter group known as Jama’atu Ansarul Muslimina fi Biladis Sudan (Ansaru), which broke from Boko Haram over different ideological interpretations of sharia, actively recruits members from Sudan.
Here is the entire interview with Franco Majok mentioned at the beginning of this article:
The Obama’s are invested in spreading wahhabist ideology through education and eliminating western education. In fact, if first lady Michelle Obama were truly interested in rescuing the victims of such tactics, she’d do well to start by calling her in-laws and telling them to stop Boko Haraming all across Kenya instead of using instragram to promote a twitter hashtag.
