A tribe of Bedouin in the Northern region of Israel, the Galilee has now claimed that it is related to U.S. President-elect Barack Hussein Obama.

Abdul Rahman Sheikh Abdullah, says that he has evidence that as many as 8,000 Bedouin tribesmen from northern Israel are related to Mr Obama.

People are now flocking from across the region to pay their respects to the 'Bedouin Obama', whose social standing has rocketed since the news was announced.

Sheikh Abdullah, who lives in the village of Bir al-Maksour in the Israeli region of Galilee, told The Times newspaper: "We knew about it years ago but we were afraid to talk about it because we didn't want to influence the election.

"We wrote a letter to him explaining the family connection."

His 95-year-old mother was the one who first spotted the connection. He says that, when she saw Obama on television, she noticed a resemblance between the senator and one of the African migrant workers who used to be employed by rich sheikhs in the north of British Mandate Palestine in the 1930s.

The African workers would sometimes marry local Bedouin girls and start families and the tribe believes that one of those migrant workers was a relative of Mr Obama's Kenyan grandmother.

Sheikh Abdullah estimates that there are as many as 8,000 members of his tribe, all loosely connected by blood to the senator for Illinois.

He insists that he has evidence to prove the link, including pictures, but has promised his mother not to divulge them until he has presented everything to Mr Obama.

Mr Obama's team have so far not responded to the letter but this has not dampened the sheikh's enthusiasm.

"We want to send a delegation to congratulate him, and we know we'll get an answer soon."

Good Luck Sheikh Abdullah!
