In Sunday’s Post, Paul Sperry broke the news that top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin served for 12 years as an editor at an intensive Muslim magazine, until simply before becoming a member of Clinton on the State Department.
The Clinton camp isn’t denying it. Spokesman Nick Merrill just says, “My know-how is that her call became truly indexed at the masthead in that length.” And: “She did not play a role in editing at the ebook.”
His know-how? Notice: He doesn’t even declare he heard this from Huma herself.
Even in case you buy this excuse, Abedin’s conduct nevertheless stinks. She had to recognize how odious the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs is: Her mom is the editor-in-leader, and her brother and sister had been additionally associate editors.
JMMM promotes a hate-filled, extremist model of Islam. It has run scholarly articles blaming the US for 11th of September, and denouncing Hillary’s personal positions on women’s rights as “un-Islamic” — the latter a 31-page treatise by using Abedin’s mom, Saleha Mahmood Abedin.
Huma Abedin, at a minimum, allowed her call to run at the masthead of this hate-rag for years, whilst she labored for first female and Sen. Hillary Clinton.
Yes, it could be hard to inform a parent you don’t want to be associated with her existence’s work — however while that work is directly opposed to the values of your excessive-profile boss?
Worse, Huma’s been publicly cheating approximately her mom’s radicalism. In 2009, she told Vogue, “My mom changed into journeying round the arena to those worldwide women’s meetings talking about girls’s empowerment, and it changed into ordinary.”
“Talking approximately women’s empowerment” — to oppose it. In that 31-web page anti-Hillary, anti-feminist screed, Saleha Mahmood Abedin argues that woman empowerment is not only un-Islamic, however also “does greater damage than benefit to the cause of women or their relations with men.”
There’s extra: Huma become it appears that evidently key to having her mother speak alongside Secretary of State Clinton in a 2010 go to to a women faculty in Saudi Arabia — wherein Hillary stated Americans must do better at getting past “the stereotypes and the mischaracterizations” of Saudi women as oppressed.
No mention, even in the Q&A, of the Saudi bans on girls riding, or traveling everywhere without male “guardians,” amongst other human rights violations enshrined inside the Saudi interpretation of Sharia regulation.
Team Hillary were given again to Sperry on Tuesday with a claim that Huma Abedin “wasn’t paid” through JMMM. If you consider that, then at least she didn’t earnings by using having the head of america State Department assist prop up one of the international’s most anti-lady regimes.
