The Saudi king paid for the Hajj of Obama’s paternal grandmother Sarah Hussein Obama and 2,000 relatives of dead Palestinians (which undoubtedly many were Hamas terrorists).
From Channel Africa:
Sarah Obama, US President Barack Obama’s 87-year-old Kenyan grandmother, has arrived in Mecca to perform the Muslim pilgrimage of hajj, the Saudi daily Okaz reported Wednesday.
Sarah Obama, one of her grandchildren and 10 people from her village in Kenya made the pilgrimage at the invitation of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah, the newspaper reported.
Among his nearly 3,000 guests this year, almost 2,000 are relatives of Palestinians killed in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.
In 2007, the New York Times quoted Obama’s grandmother as saying “I am a strong believer of the Islamic faith.” But a 2008 USA Today article, in which Sarah Obama slams “untruths” about the soon-to-be president, claims that she is a Christian.
