    AP: Like the majority of the country, Papa Obama's illegal Auntie is greatly anguished over her nephew or Has Papa Obama abandoned his beloved Auntie Zeituni in her hour of greatest need ?

    AP: {news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091201/ap_on_re_us/us_obama_aunt}

    President Barack Obama’s aunt buried her face in her hands and sobbed as she described her anguish over no longer having contact with him and his family after the revelation she had been living illegally for years in the United States in public housing.

    Zeituni Onyango (zay-TUH’-nee awn-YAHN’-goh) told The Associated Press in an exclusive interview that she is troubled that her immigration woes have made her a political liability to her nephew.

    Onyango, the half sister of Obama’s late father, said she has exiled herself from the family after attending Obama’s inauguration because she didn’t want to become fodder for his foes. Obama and his family have not reached out to her either, she said.

    “Before, we were family. But right now, there is a lot of politics, and me, I am not interested in any politics at all,” said Onyango, whose appeal for asylum from her native Kenya is before an immigration judge in Boston.

    The Obamas are her only family in the United States, she said.

    “It is very sad when such a thing happens. There are people, outsiders, you know, they come in between, they divide a family,” she said last week. “It’s not easy.”

    Perhaps she could turn towards "Granny" for comfort

    UK- The Daily Times : Obama's Grandmother to Attend Hajj or How could the US MSM miss this human interest story?

    Obama's grandmother who visited Washington DC on Inauguration is going to perform hajj

    LAHORE: US President Barack Obama’s paternal grandmother, Sara Obama, will perform haj this year along with her son Syed Obama, a private TV channel reported on Saturday. According to the channel, Sara and Syed will also visit Dubai before going to Saudi Arabia for performing haj. Sara (85) is an active participant in welfare and charity programmes. The channel said performing haj is one of the most desired wishes of the US president’s grandmother.


    Part Deux

    Hydra chief to accompany Obama’s grandmother on Hajj

    Property tycoon Dr Sulaiman Al Fahim is to accompany Barack Obama’s grandmother Mama Sarah to Makkah this year for the Hajj, Arabian Business can reveal.

    Hydra Properties CEO Al Fahim – now also working as a UN Ambassador – met Obama’s grandmother during a trip to Kenya last week.

    Al Fahim was in the country to help combat the spread of malnutrition, as part of his UN role.
    Of course, the last report from the US MSM was that she was Christian

    Obama's grandma slams 'untruths' (talk about understatement)

    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.

    "In the world of today, children have different religions from their parents," she said. She, too, is a Christian.

    Barack Obama has visited his Kenyan relatives three times in Kogelo, and his grandmother has gone to the U.S. twice. She says they are close, although they have to speak through an interpreter
