"Hm, His Father was a Muslim,His Grandmother is a Muslim,Hm ?

The 87-year-old Kenyan grandmother,Mama Sarah Obama, of President Obama – once described by the Associated Press as a "Christian" – is making the Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina, the Hajj, according to news reports.

The annual Islamic tradition was noted by the president, who issued a special statement today as Sarah Obama was reported to be a guest of the Saudi Arabian king.

"Michelle and I would like to send our best wishes to all those performing Hajj this year, and to Muslims in America and around the world who are celebrating Eid al-Adha.

The rituals of Hajj and Eid al-Adha both serve as reminders of the shared Abrahamic roots of three of the world's major religions," the statement, posted on the White House government website, said.

"During Hajj, the world's largest and most diverse gathering, three million Muslims from all walks of life – including thousands of American Muslims – will stand in prayer on Mount Arafat.

The following day, Muslims around the world will celebrate Eid al-Adha and distribute food to the less fortunate to commemorate Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son out of obedience to God," Barack Obama said.

If he isn't a Muslim, he's too close for comfort, he better be a one termer.

"Obama Gramother Dies in Mecca: Hajj Stampede Blamed as Devil Takes Highest Profile Victim to Date"

Wouldn't that headline be a hoot? She better be carefull. In the battle between stone throwing Muslims and the Devil at the yearly Hajj Pilgimage, the Devil has racked up a hell of an undefeated streak. Usually shutting out the Muslims with scores of hubdreds to zero.
