Siad Barre the CHRISTIAN Convert?!!! - Video

AMY GOODMAN: And Siad Barre of Somalia?

JEFF SHARLET: Yeah, dictator of Somalia. It’s, to me, one of the scariest stories that I found in their archives. I was able to recreate this, because they dumped 600 boxes of papers in the Billy Graham archives. Siad Barre was a —- not a likely candidate for Christian right recruitment, called himself a Koranic Marxist. But in the early ’80s, the Soviets had abandoned him. There had been a power shift between Somalia and Ethiopia. He was in the market for a new patron. And working through Senator Chuck Grassley, Republican of Iowa, of course still in office -—

AMY GOODMAN: Talk more about Chuck Grassley, who certainly is in the news now, who, together with Max Baucus, heads the Senate Finance Committee.

JEFF SHARLET: Yeah.

AMY GOODMAN: Baucus, Democrat; Grassley, Republican. Very powerful figure, especially around healthcare right now.

JEFF SHARLET: Indeed. And Grassley has been involved with the organization for quite some time, since the ’80s, when he traveled to Somalia to join Barre, Siad Barre, in prayer to Jesus. And he brought with him a defense contractor named Bill Brehm.

And Barre was a kind of a cynical character, as you might expect for a dictator. He was very clear. He says, “I’m willing to pray to Jesus, and here’s what I want in return.” He says, “I want my defense budget doubled.” He says, “I want meetings for my officials with the Reagan White House. And I want a sort of a hands-off policy while I crack down on some rebels.” Doug Coe, the leader of the group, wrote back, in essence, “Done, done and done.”

And when we look at history, so it was. And Barre used those weapons, supplied to him in part by the US, to wage a war of almost biblical proportion on his own people, from which Somalia has not recovered to this day. The Family doesn’t consider that a failure; they consider that God’s will for Somalia.

Satan Barre and the soviets were "allegedly" also behind the assassination of Ina Sharmarke. They approached several MJ men to do the killing for them and one idiot took the bait.


Go on netflix and watch the documentary on the Christian fundamentalist cult "The Family".
Siad Barre joined their cult.
 
Apparently he was offered a home in Saudi Arabia but instead he chose Lagos, Nigeria. It all makes sense, this documentary exposed him. Prove us all wrong? :leon:

Siad Barre once said that he would ally with devil if it could benefit Somalia. This is called a hyperbole, it's obviously not to be taken literally.
I doubt Siad Barre ever said he would pray jesus but even if he said it would have been an hyperbole and not a serious statement.
This picture proves NOTHING. Siad was simply meeting the pope who is the leader of the Vatican State. Is everyone who meets the pope a Catholic christian?
 
Could a political tactic. Claim fake conversion to secure war supplies. :lolbron:
This is silly on so many levels.
Do you think Western countries base their weapons deals on religion? They wouldn't sell weapons to Saudi Arabia if that was the case

Why isn't Turkey in the EU after 20 years of Trying? When that whole area was the Roman Empire.

It's not about the religion of the ruler though. They won't ket u join the Eu if u are a muslim Country sure, but they would support you and sell you weapons if you support them.
Why is the west so friendly with wahabi saudi Arabia? What about the Uae who just signed a peace deal with Israel? Come on.
Siad Barre would have gotten any weapon he needed even as long as he was useful to the west. No need to pray Jesus.

The weapons they give Saudis are 2nd rate compared to stuff they give Italy, probably 3-4th rate compared to the stuff they give Israel. Get real. You are so naive.
