Clinton’s Top Aide, Huma Abedin, Was Assistant Editor For Radical Muslim Journal When It Blamed U.S. For 9/11 Attacks

The woman that has been by Hillary Clinton’s side for 20 years, first beginning her career as Clinton’s aide back in 1996, was also the assistant editor for a radical Muslim journal which posted a scathing piece blaming Americans for the 9/11 attacks.

Huma Abedin, one of Hillary Clinton’s closest confidants, worked simultaneously for her mother’s radical Muslim journal while also taking care of Hillary Clinton’s needs as the then-Senator’s aide. Her radical Muslim connections went unnoticed as Abedin was then a little-known aide, but would soon earn a spot as Clinton’s right-hand lady.

Breitbart reports that while Huma Abedin has been thrust into the national spotlight as Hillary Clinton’s top campaign aide and likely choice for presidential chief of staff should the United States have its first female president this year. Abedin has been by Clinton’s side since 1996 when she was selected as a White House intern charged with working in the East Wing with the then First Lady Hillary Clinton.

Newsweek notes that Abedin started off as just one of many aides, but quickly moved up in ranks as Clinton appreciated her dedication to her job. In fact, Abedin took her job so seriously that it was revealed she once nearly burst into tears when she learned that Hillary had to carry her own bags up a flight of stairs in her absence.

In 2000, as Hillary Clinton ran for Senate, other top aides moved on from Clinton’s campaign and Abedin found herself quickly moving up the ladder. By 2007, Clinton was preparing for her first presidential campaign and choose Abedin as her campaign aide. Huma was right by Hillary’s side throughout the campaign and proved to be so loyal that Clinton chose to make the aide her deputy chief of staff when she was appointed Secretary of State.

Those hoping to secure a meeting with Clinton would first need to go through Abedin. One insider noted to Newsweek that he stopped trying to contact Clinton directly and said that talking to Human was “like talking to Clinton.”

“I don’t even waste time trying to find Clinton directly. I only would go to Huma. It’s like talking to Clinton.”

With Huma Abedin getting only closer to Clinton over the years, it should come as no surprise that her background is now being thoroughly vetted. Breitbart reports that one particularly startling connection has been made between Huma and radical Muslim beliefs.

Huma Abedin reportedly worked for a radical Muslim journal ran by her mother in 2001. Abedin worked as an editor for the journal while simultaneously working for then-Senator Hillary Clinton. The Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs seemed to be a Abedin family business as Huma’s mother, sister and brother were all listed as editors for the publication.

Meanwhile, Abedin also had connections to the Muslim World League London Office which shares a business address with other Abedin family businesses. As Huma worked for Senator Clinton, the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs was publishing articles by Huma’s mother Saleha S. Mahmood blaming America for the 9/11 attacks. An excerpt from the damning piece claims that sanctions on Iraq and injustices against Muslims by Americans across the globe were to blame for the terrorist attack.

“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. . . 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.”

The New York Post points out that Abedin was working as an assistant editor for the radical Muslim paper for over a decade as she began her work for the publication as far back as 1996. In fact, many of the early articles in the publication were tearing about then First Lady Hillary Clinton’s feminist platform. As Abedin served as the First Lady’s aide, she was also editing and publishing articles written by her mother in the journal, tearing about Clinton’s feminist platform piece-by-piece.

“Abedin’s mother — who was the Muslim World League’s delegate to the UN conference — wrote that Clinton and other speakers were advancing a ‘very aggressive and radically feminist’ agenda that was un-Islamic and wrong because it focused on empowering women.”

Abedin’s mother said that “empowerment” of women was doing more harm than good for relations between men and women and that Islamic laws are more favorable. She claimed that by “placing women in the care and protection of men” it “generates a sense of compassion in human and family relations.”

“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. Among all systems of belief, Islam goes the farthest in restoring equality across gender. 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.”

While the Abedin family values seem in stark contrast to Hillary Clinton’s proposed platform “family and women’s rights” issues, the Clinton campaign has yet to respond to the allegations.

“The contradictions are hard to reconcile. The campaign is not talking, despite repeated requests for interviews. Until now, these articles which Abedin helped edit and publish have remained under wraps. Perhaps Clinton was unaware she and her mother took such opposing views. But that’s hard to believe. Her closest adviser served as an editor for that same Saudi propaganda organ for a dozen years.”

Do you think the Clinton campaign should make an official statement about Huma Abedin’s involvement in the radical Muslim journal?
