Hillary Clinton’s closest aide and gal-pal, Huma Abedin, is once again under scrutiny following revelations that she worked for a radical Muslim journal.
From 2002-2008, Huma worked at the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, a publication that not only opposes women’s rights but blames the United States for 9/11.
Editing countless articles to eventually rise to the role of “assistant editor,” Abedin worked under the tutelage of her radical mother, who remains editor-in-chief of the publication to this day.
Huma’s mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, is as radical as they come.
As the Muslim World League’s delegate to the UN conference in 1996, the elder Abedin even blasted Clinton and her ilk for pursuing a “very aggressive and radically feminist” agenda that contradicted Islamic values.
Opposing women’s rights in favor of Islamic supremacy and Sharia-based law codes, she added:
‘Empowerment’ of women does more harm than benefit the cause of women or their relations with men...
By placing women in the ‘care and protection’ of men and by making women responsible for those under her charge
Islamic values generate a sense of compassion in human and family relations.
Taking absurdity to new heights, Saleha continued by praising Islam for its supposed gender equality.
“Among all systems of belief, Islam goes the farthest in restoring equality across gender,” the delusional woman suggested. “Acknowledging the very central role women play in procreation, child-raising and homemaking, Islam places the economic responsibility of supporting the family primarily on the male members.”
In addition to opposing women’s rights, Saleha has gone on record opposing LGBT rights at the UN.
To date, Huma Abedin hasn’t disavowed or distanced herself from her radical mother.
“My mother was traveling around the world to these international women’s conferences talking about women’s empowerment, and it was normal,” she said in a glitzy and glamorous Vogue magazine profile. In this same Vogue spread, Huma claimed she was a “feminist.”
According to the New York Post, the elder Abedin’s 9/11 victim-blaming appears to excuse the actions of the Muslim terrorists that brought down the World Trade Center and murdered thousands of Americans.
The United States was to blame for '”spiral of violence” and consequent “anger and hostility” it created in the Muslim world, wrote Saleha after the terrorist attacks. The “injustices” inflicted on Muslims created a “'time bomb” that inevitably led to retribution against the United States.
Saleha’s disturbing statements have never been explicitly rejected by Huma herself.
In fact, she started working for Hillary Clinton as an aide in 1996, at the same time as her radical mother was publishing and propagating her views.
Over the next few years, Huma became closer and closer to Hillary. She is now Hillary’s closest campaign aide. She will undoubtedly be bequeathed a major cabinet post for her loyalty to the Clintons. Many suspect she may even be chosen as White House Chief of Staff if Hillary is elected president.
As a result, the Clinton campaign has attempted to suppress and conceal Huma’s radical past.
Until now, these articles which Huma helped edit and publish have remained under wraps. Perhaps Clinton was unaware she and her mother took such opposing views,” reports the Post. “But that’s hard to believe. Her closest adviser served as an editor for that same Saudi propaganda organ for a dozen years. The same one that in 1999 published a book, edited by her mother, that justifies the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation under Islamic law, while claiming ‘man-made laws have in fact enslaved women.’”
This isn’t Huma’s first encounter with controversy. After all, she’s a major player in the Clinton email-gate scandal. Not only was she interviewed several times by the FBI, but she’s been accused of hiding evidence that implicated her bestie, Hillary, in the crime of sharing sensitive national security information across an a vulnerable and non-secured server.
The conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch is currently attempting to get the courts to compel Huma to release her own stash of emails.
