Back in March of 2008, during the early heat of the Democratic Presidential primary, AP ran a story debunking the rumor Barack Obama is a Muslim. As part of that story. AP claimed President Obama's paternal grandmother, "Sarah" was a christian.
Obama's grandfather had converted to Islam from Roman Catholicism and taken the name Hussein, Sarah Obama said, but his children had inherited only the name, not the religion. Each person should be able to choose how they worshipped, she said.President Obama's paternal grandmother attended Hajj in Mecca this year and prayed for his conversion to Islam.
"In the world of today, children have different religions from their parents," she said. She, too, is a Christian.
U.S. President Barack Obama's Kenyan grandmother says she prayed during a hajj pilgrimage to Mecca for the American leader to convert to Islam.
'I prayed for my grandson Barack to convert to Islam,' said Sarah Omar, 88, in an interview with Al-Watan Saudi daily held in Jeddah after she had performed hajj.
The paper said that Omar was in Saudi Arabia on pilgrimage along with her son, Obama's uncle Saeed Hussein Obama, and four of her grandchildren.
Omar told the newspaper that she could only discuss hajj matters and would not comment on Obama's politics.
This is just another example of the lies and deceptions the mainstream media disseminated in order to get Barack Obama elected President.
