The Daily Mail and the New York Post continue to build on the damning case against Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin that the mainstream media continues to ignore.
With a blockbuster story out Sunday that shows that Journal for Muslim Minority Affairs published articles blaming the U.S. for 9/11, suggesting women were asking for rape by dressing provocatively, and that, according to the Post, “in 1999 published a book, edited by her mother, that justifies the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation under Islamic law.”
A recent article in Vogue describes Huma Abedin’s mother as a “feminist.”
The Daily Mail picked up on the New York Post reporting by Paul Sperry, writing:
Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin worked at a radical Muslim publication that opposed women’s rights and blamed the US for 9/11, it has been revealed.
Abedin, who could become the future White House chief of staff if Hillary wins the election, was assistant editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs until as late as 2008, NY Post reports.
The aide was at the journal in 2002 when her mother Saleha Mahmood Abedin, who remains editor-in-chief to this day, published an article which appeared to blame the US for bringing the 9/11 terror attacks on itself, according to the Post.
An article by Huma’s mother after 9/11 claimed America’s “spiral of violence” and “injustices” created “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 Mail also reported:
A 1996 piece titled ‘Women’s rights are Islamic rights’, that appeared to claim that women who wore revealing clothes were inviting rape.
The author wrote that revealing clothes ‘directly translates into unwanted results of sexual promiscuity and irresponsibility and indirectly promote violence against women.’
As Breitbart News has previously reported, Abedin was working for the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs at the exact same time she was serving as one of Hillary Clinton’s top aides when she was the Senator from New York.
Other articles and statements by Huma Abedin’s mother were sure to please the misogynist Saudi Arabian regime, but not Hillary Clinton’s liberal base. Sperry writes at the New York Post: Huma Abedin published articles in a Saudi journal taking Clinton’s feminist platform apart, piece by piece. At the time, Abedin was assistant editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs working under her mother, who remains editor-in-chief. She was also working in the White House as an intern for then-First Lady Clinton.
Headlined “Women’s Rights are Islamic Rights,” a 1996 article argues that single moms, working moms and gay couples with children should not be recognized as families. It also states that more revealing dress ushered in by women’s liberation “directly translates into unwanted results of sexual promiscuity and irresponsibility and indirectly promote violence against women.” In other words, sexually liberated women are just asking to be raped.
“A conjugal family established through a marriage contract between a man and a woman, and extended through procreation is the only definition of family a Muslim can accept,” the author, a Saudi official with the Muslim World League, asserted, while warning of “the dangers of alternative lifestyles.” (Abedin’s journal was founded and funded by the former head of the Muslim World League.)
So far, Hillary Clinton’s media strategy has been to simply duck the issue entirely, using her media surrogates such as the group Media Matters for America to try to discredit them. Often, this takes the form of quoting Republicans such as John McCain or Grover Norquist, who defended Abedin against allegations made led by Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.
Bachmann’s allegations were accurate but took the circuitous route of attempting to connect Huma to terrorism through the Egyptian-based Muslim Brotherhood. More recently, however, articles published on Breitbart News by this reporter and Trump advisor Roger Stone took the direct route of connecting Saudi Arabia-raised Abedin to the Saudi Arabian charity called the Muslim World League and its offshoot The Rabitha Trust.
The media has simply ignored the clear connection between Abedin and the Muslim World League, instead focusing on the allegations from years ago and writing them off as a “conspiracy theory.”
The new allegations against Huma are especially troubling given recent revelations in Breitbart News showing the irrefutable connection between the Muslim World League and terror funding.
