Who Is Huma Abedin?

Since the election season is upon us Democrats are out there accusing the Republican candidate of being Hitler and the Republican Party of being a bunch of Nazis.

It happens every four years. It does not matter who the candidate is. It does not even matter that the current candidate has a Jewish daughter, a Jewish son-in-law and three Jewish grandchildren. Nothing matters but the art of the smear.

In the meantime, people are doing their best to ignore Hillary’s connection with Huma Abedin. Some have said that Huma will be the next White House Chief of Staff. Others have noted that Hillary and Huma seem to be joined at the hip… whatever that suggests.

Everyone should know by now that Abedin’s mother works as a propagandist for the Muslim Brotherhood. And that the Brotherhood is a virulently anti-Semitic and anti-American organization, one of whose branches is the terrorist organization Hamas.

The Clinton campaign and many voices in the media have downplayed the influence of the Brotherhood on Hillary’s right hand woman. CNN reported the other night that the Journal edited by Huma’s mother is innocuous. And besides, even if Huma’s name was listed as an editor she was not really an editor.

Regardless of whether Huma’s name was listed, it is a fact that Secretary of State Clinton travelled to Saudi Arabia and appeared in public with Huma’s mother. This lends credibility to someone who publishes terrorist propaganda.

And it is also a fact that, after Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood candidate for president of Egypt, won his election the first foreign leader to grace his presence and to lend legitimacy to his position was none other than the American Secretary of State.

And, lest we forget, immediately prior to the Egyptian election the Muslim Brotherhood was doing neighborhood outreach by sending mobile surgical vans into the poor neighbors of Cairo in order to allow parents to have their daughters genitally mutilated without having to suffer the inconvenience of bringing them to a clinic or a hospital.

War against women, anyone?

Now, there’s something that deserves recognition from the American Secretary of State. I promise that the feminist supporters of Hillary and Huma will never say a word about any of this.

These facts are not in dispute. Arguing about how much work Huma did or did not do for her mother’s journal is beside the point.

What is more to the point is Huma’s mother’s journal has happily been trafficking in anti-Semitism. The Daily Mail has the story:

An Islamic journal where Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton's top aide, was assistant editor published an article accusing Jews of 'working the American political system' – and being aided by the 'memory of the Holocaust'.

Abedin, who is vice-chair of Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign, spent 12 years as an assistant editor for Journal of Minority Muslim Affairs.

Her mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, is the journal's editor-in-chief and has been accused of espousing the views of the Muslim Brotherhood through the publication. 

It continues:

One article, published during Huma Abedin's tenure, claimed that many Americans have a 'distorted and negative view' of Islam, Muslims and Arabs - ranging from perceptions of 'poverty, filth, the desert' to ideas that 'their 'sport' (other than sex, of course) is to destabilize Western economies and ruin the world in order to master it'.

The piece from 1999 also alleges that there are deep ties between the upper echelons of U.S. politics and pro-Israeli, Jewish-Americans, suggesting that Jewish people have been able to 'work the system' and are 'greatly aided by the American memory of the Holocaust' and Israel serving as America's ally in the Middle East.

And, of course, Abedin’s mother herself wrote an editorial explaining that America was responsible for the 9/11 attacks:

In the wake of 9/11, Abedin's mother wrote an editorial suggesting that the U.S. bore responsibility for al-Qaeda's attack.

In 2001, Saleha Mahmood Abedin wrote: 'As incomprehensible as it may seem to the common observer, something catastrophic seemed to loom on the horizon for the watchers of the world scene. 

'The spiral of violence having continued unabated worldwide, and widely seen to be allowed to continue, was building up intense anger and hostility within the pressure cooker that was kept on a vigorous flame while the lid was weighted down with various kinds of injustices and sanctions. 

'This was further intensified by the demographic and socio-economic pressures that came with their own set of factors promoting social and political instability and, at the individual level, anger, frustration and a sense of deprivation. 

'It was a time bomb that had to explode and explode it did on September 11, changing in its wake the life and times of the very community and the people it aimed to serve. Muslims everywhere are now singled out as 'one of those'.'

As always, Muslim radicals accept no responsibility. They blame America first. Electing Hillary Clinton is empowering a woman whose mother wrote that. Has Huma ever denounced her mother's views? Has anyone ever asked her whether she denounces her mother's views?And has Hillary Clinton ever denounced a woman who refuses to denounce her mother's hate-mongering?

Hard to ask either, as Mrs. Clinton refuses to be asked anything but scripted questions. No press conference in over 8 months!

The Klan could not have done a better job than the democrats in making minorities slaves to the state. It is not called the "Liberal Plantation" for nothing.

Who is Huma Abedin?

"Clinton's campaign told the [Washington] Post that Abedin was just a figurehead at the journal."
--- Business Insider

Just a figurehead. A job description that made her job with Hillary Clinton a perfect match: figurehead and bobblehead. Hard to beat. They're very good at what they do.

And let us remember that while both candidates have daughters who married Jewish men, only Ivanka converted and is raising her kids as members of our Tribe.

I am shocked, SHOCKED, to find that there are anti-Semitic comments and screeds and rants in Muslim Brotherhood publication.

TW: Huma only a figurehead then. No doubt, she still is.

Hillary has been taking too much Coumadin and too much Humabedin.

One of the advantages of Trump as a candidate is that he would be willing to ask "Who Is Huma Abedin?" The other 16 members of the wannabe Republican field would never go there. Ever! It'd be too dangerous. So low, so "racist," so bad at cocktail parties. After all, she's a woman, a woman scorned, and a Muslim. DANGER! Political third rail! I hope Trump goes there. Hard. After all, Hillary's got him pegged as an honorary KKK member, so how could it get worse?

And you've gotta love Jeb! living out that pledge to support the Republican nominee. My, what a MAN Jeb! is! There's a whiff of Trump "pivoting" to a dearly-held Jeb! immigration position, and Jeb! is disgusted. Not only "low energy," but low intelligence. We are so fortunate to have avoided THAT dynastic coronation. Egad.

I wish I found it odd that you took the time to mention Ivanka Trump but not Anthony Weiner, Huma's husband. You don't have to be so one-sided to make your points. It doesn't enhance your credibility.

Because that would make her look better. If I mention Carlos Danger, not exactly husband of the year, I would also have to say something about a marriage that appears to be an arrangement. Of course, Huma is not exactly mother of the year. If you would like to reflect on that marriage, be my guest. As one commenter mentioned, Ivanka married a Jewish man and converted. Chelsea Clinton married a Jewish man and did not convert. Huma married a Jewish man and did not convert.
