Hillary Clinton acts like a freshman Wellesley College girl. Bringing her mob of girls because alone she feel awkward. It’s amateur hour at the State Dept, Can’t she owe up to a lousy policy? Does she have to bring her female flock with her? Diplomacy does not go down like this. These are the type of feminists that send a gay man to meet with the Muslim Brotherhood. Just hope that Bibi doesn’t get raped in the ass as well.
(Carl)Haaretz’s Barak Ravid tweeted this photo of Hillary Clinton arriving at the Regency Hotel in New York for her Thursday meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu.
In a tweeted response, Laura Rozen identified the other people in the picture. That’s Hillary in the front. The lady to her left (our right) in the blue pantsuit and pink wrap is Wendy Sherman, the United States’ Iranian negotiator. The tall, thin guy behind her is policy planning chief Jake Sullivan. And the woman to Sullivan’s right (our left) with the brown shirt, white necklace and off white pants is Hillary’s administrative aide Muslim Brotherhood representative Huma Abedin.
What the heck is Huma doing there? Taking notes? For whom?
Bachmann & Co. haven’t alleged wrongdoing on Abedin’s part. Rather, their question turns on the process that permitted a person with close family ties to an array of world Islamic movements and figures hostile to the United States to gain the security clearance Abedin requires to serve alongside the secretary of state.
I looked over the lengthy Form 86 that federal employees fill out to apply for national security positions. One portion is devoted to an applicant’s relatives, with a question about relatives’ affiliations with any “foreign movement.” If Abedin answered fully — and there are stiff penalties for failing to do so — she would have noted, for starters, that her mother, Saleha Abedin, belongs to the Muslim Sisterhood (the Brotherhood’s auxiliary, primarily for relatives of prominent Brothers) and serves on the board of the International Islamic Council for Dawah and Relief, a group banned in Israel for supporting Hamas. Saleha Abedin has been a representative of the Muslim World League, whose affiliates have been charged by the U.S. government with funding terrorism. Any ensuing investigation would turn up Saleha’s work with the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs, where she edits the journal that Huma, too, worked on for a dozen years. That same institute was founded by Huma’s father in Saudi Arabia with the assistance and long-term involvement of Abdullah Omar Naseef. Naseef was secretary-general of the Muslim World League and also founded the Rabita Trust, a U.S.-designated international terrorist organization with ties to al-Qaida.
There’s more, but just imagine the light dawning on the background-checker: So, Ms. Abedin, let me get this straight: Your folks, and you, too, worked with a guy who founded a terrorist organization linked to al-Qaida, your mom’s on the board of a group banned in Israel for supporting Hamas, and you want top-secret clearance to work for the secretary of state.Then what happened?
Hillary Clinton publicly defends Huma Abedin; applauds McCain for doing same.(Shoebat).Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is now publicly on record as defending her closest adviser and Deputy Chief of Staff, Huma Abedin. She’s also praising John McCain for doing the same.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton defended her own top State Department aide Huma Abedin against charges that Abdein had ties to radical Islam — saying that those attacks have “no place in our politics.”
Speaking at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Monday, Clinton was asked about suspicions raised by a handful of Republican members of Congress in a letter — including Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) — that the Muslim-American Abedin may have ties to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood group.
In answering the question, Clinton tied the Abedin controversy into the struggle of developing nations to respect minority religions.
“Leadership is incredibly important. Leaders have to be active in stepping in and sending messages about protecting the diversity within their countries. And frankly, I don’t see enough of that, and I want to see more of it. I want to see more of it, and we did see some of that in our own country. We saw Republicans stepping up and standing up against the kind of assaults that really have no place in our politics,” Clinton said.
What’s very key in that quote from Clinton is that it doesn’t contain a denial of the facts. Instead, she refers to questions as “assaults” and says they shouldn’t be asked.
We beg to differ, especially in light of what we now know. What Hillary knows becomes very important as well.
Regular visitors to this site know that Huma’s time with the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA) is key to understanding the questions raised by the likes of Bachmann. In particular, Huma served as an Assistant Editor there for years. Blind Sheikh prosecutor Andy McCarthy explains over at PJM.

(h/t Many Faces)(Hill)Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be the first foreign official to meet with newly elected Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, Egypt’s Al-Ahram news website is reporting.
The site is quoting officials at Cairo’s airport for the report. A State Department spokeswoman said the department had nothing to announce at the moment but that Clinton “does look forward to a chance to go and consult with the new government at an appropriate moment.”
Saleha Abedin – the mother of Hillary Clinton’s closest aide (Huma Abedin) – is a close colleague of Egypt’s new first lady. We are sending our highest feminist and the sister of the Muslim Brotherhood (no… this is not conspiracy theory) to Egypt to work this out. Maybe we can talk Hill into bringing all of Code Pink with her.
These are not twisted sorority girls trying a different flavor, Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin must be in a secret lesbian coven. If Weiner were a prop to masquerade their Pro-Israel credentials it would explain somethings. If this is a closet case situation here for Weiner’s wife, the pregnancy would be all part of the greater charade.
I won’t include the silly feminist left theories of therapy and the oh so vain theory that he has sainted his wife as perfect and therefor can not sleep with her. That kind of analysis generally go to uptight English cultural scholars like William Morris.
Omar Abu-Namous is the imam of the Islamic Cultural Center in New York and he is encouraging Huma Abedin – a practicing Muslim – to stand by her husband, New York congressman Anthony Weiner. Why would this imam support Anthony Weiner, who was raised Jewish, in a marriage with a practicing Muslim woman?
EVERY ISLAMIC SCHOLAR agrees that it is forbidden for a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim. Former Muslim Walid Shoebat has translated the Arabic declarations relative to the validity of the marriage between Weiner and Abedin last year. One such publication Shoebat translated was the Al-Marsid newspaper, which reported on the Weiner/Abedin marriage specifically:
Dr. Anwar Shoeb of the faculty of Islamic law in Kuwait declared that the marriage between Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin is null and void, considering it adultery as confirmed in the Sharia position, prohibiting the marriage of a Muslim woman to a non-Muslim, regardless of whether he is a Jew or a Christian. In this case, he assured the invalidity of the marriage certificate between them.
Abu-Namous is in direct opposition to his Islamic superiors? Why? Huma Abedin was raised in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. In 2007, the New York Observer wrote (in an article no longer available but cross-posted at FreeRepublic.com) that her mother is a professor in Saudi Arabia and that her father was an Islamic scholar before his death.
Weiner was raised Jewish but admitted to growing up in a non-religious household. If Abedin remains a practicing Muslim and her religion forbids her from marrying a non-Muslim, isn’t she failing to practice Islam? Wouldn’t that be the case unless Weiner converted to Islam? The New York Times reported that Weiner “sometimes fasts with her (Abedin) during Ramadan.” This would indicate that the congressman is more amenable to practicing Islam than Abedin is to practicing Judaism.
Before people should start believing that Abu-Namous is of the more moderate persuasion, consider what he was quoted as saying in 2001:
A unified Muslim state would be the ideal instrument to convince the world that Islam is the last version of God’s word. God meant his word to be obeyed.
Moreover, Abu-Namous spoke alongside the director of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) at the First National Summit of Imams and Rabbis. ISNA is a Muslim Brotherhood group. Abu-Namous is on record as having said there was no conclusive evidence that Muslim were responsible for the September 11th attacks. Ironically, former ground zero mosque imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is a permanent trustee with with the ICC. Abu-Namous’s predecessor at the ICC blamed the Jews for 9/11.
Presiding over the wedding of Weiner and Abedin was none other than Bill Clinton. It took place at the Oheka Castle in Huntington, NY on Long Island – barely more than thirty miles from the ICC where Abu-Namous served as the imam.
The Al-Marsid newspaper reported what Bill Clinton said. Shoebat translated: Clinton spoke, presiding at the wedding about how the two met and how Abedin rejected Weiner in the beginning but the persistence of the latter did not make him give up….
Did Abedin reject Weiner because he was not Muslim? Why is a New York imam with ties to the ISNA and Feisal Abdul Rauf defending a non-Muslim male with a Muslim female?
Perhaps there is a more important question that needs to be answered. Did a secular Jewish man convert to Islam or did his (still) practicing Muslim wife abandon her religion by marrying him?
