8,000 Beduins stake their claim as the lost tribe of Barack Obama - Times Online:
"“We knew about it years ago but we were afraid to talk about it because we didn’t want to influence the election,” Abdul Rahman Sheikh Abdullah, a 53-year-old local council member, told The Times in the small Beduin village of Bir al-Maksour in the Israeli region of Galilee. “We wrote a letter to him explaining the family connection.”"Hmmm, interesting how this was never mentioned during the race ... because they knew he would never have been elected!! Not that this distant link would have made a difference in him, but lets be honest, if the American public had known he had links to foreign countries (esp. arab countries) they would not have voted for him - the Dixie-crats would have jumped ship and he would never have gotten in.
kind of makes you wonder what else the campaign kept hushed up though, doesn't it?
"It was his 95-year-old mother [ginger notes: the sheik's, not Obama's] who first spotted the connection, he says.Hmm, I'm wondering if that term migrant shouldn't have quotes around it .... think of the times ... depending on when the ancestor 'migrated' north, it might not have been his 'choice' to do so.
Seeing the charismatic senator on television, she noted a striking resemblance to one of the African migrant workers who used to be employed by rich sheikhs in the fertile north of British Mandate Palestine in the 1930s. "
After all, the Germans enslaved untold numbers of African natives making them do their will (they were the master race remember?) ... hmmm, have to wonder.
Normally DNA could solve this ... but the possible dilution of the family blood over the last 5 generations or so, might make it a bit hard ... and you know technically if you checked hard enough, I'm sure you will find that Obama is related to Bush in some way too ... hell, he could even be related somehow to me.
