Obama's half brother visits Israel
Jewish Mark Ndesandjo meets with chief rabbi, agrees to press Obama to release Jonathan Pollard
While US President Barack Obama was busy orchestrating the assassination of terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden, his half brother Mark Ndesandjo reconnected with his Jewish roots on his first trip to Israel.
Ndesandjo, 45, was born to Barack Obama Senior's third wife, a Jewish American kindergarten teacher and the daughter of Lithuanian immigrants.
Think this story is weird? Read on:
Ndesandjo studied Physics at Brown and Stanford, and has an MBA from Emory University. In 2002 he relocated from the US to China, where he married Liu Xuehua. In 2009 he published an autobiography titled "Nairobi to Shenzhen: A Novel of Love," where he describes, among other things, growing up with an abusive, alcoholic father. Ndesandjo currently runs an internet company, World Nexus, which advises Chinese companies on international markets.
So his children are: Chinese Lithuanian Jewish African American who practice Judaism and live in China with a president uncle and a half Indonesian aunt, which the Libyan dictator calls "my son".
I'm not mocking, I'm re-iterating. Good luck and all the best to this guy and his family. (well not to his brother the president's policies with which I disagree...)
