One thing the mainstream media knows about Huma Abedin is that she is elegant. Time reported on how Weiner’s “elegant and accomplished wife… declared her love and support for him, visibly pained at having to speak in public as the sad, sordid details of his repeat behavior were exposed yet again.” The Wall Street Journal lamented:

Watching the elegant Huma Abedin stand next to her man Tuesday as he explained his latest sexually charged online exchanges was painful for a normal human being to watch.

What they’re less sure of is why this elegant woman would stand by the increasingly ridiculous Weiner. Time thinks, rather fancifully, that it’s because “divorce can still be stigmatizing in some social circles where parents are particularly ambitious about providing the absolute best environment for their children” – and because, well, Huma just “loves this guy despite it all.”

Most others, however, agree that it is because she is seeking power and influence, and thinks – however improbably – that Anthony Weiner is still the pathway to them. Even Weiner’s sexting partner Sydney Leathers said of the Weiner-Abedin union: “It almost feels to me like it’s more of an arrangement, or a business relationship, than a marriage.” She said she thought Abedin stuck with Weiner “for the power, for the fame, for the stature.”

Maybe so. And she also may be staying in it because Weiner’s indiscretions just don’t matter to her that much – not necessarily because they have a sham marriage, but because Abedin is approaching the marriage from an Islamic perspective.

Thank you, Charles, for engaging.

I am not Catholic as I expect you are. Therefore I defer, utterly, to your understanding of Catholic doctrine. However, the word 'Catholic' does not subsume the western tradition under it, at least not for the last 500 years.
So, we will have to part ways on that.

On the specifics of this recent post there are still grounds for our differing perspectives and I do not offer them to simply gainsay your view:

"It is not abandonment. It is not mental or physical cruelty. There is no evidence that Weiner intended to hurt his wife."

We can argue about whether he 'abandoned' her. It isn't a stretch to say that he did, but I won't die on this hill. However, the case can only be made that Weiner did not engage in mental cruelty toward his wife if she is beyond feeling (which, I suppose, is a case for someone to make). No normal woman could feel anything but contempt and betrayal. As to Weiner's intent to hurt his wife, many an alcoholic and drug addict have fallen back on the same rationalizations.

As to this:

"Weiner's behavior is creepy and offensive. It does not in any way reflect on his wife. Nor should his wife be expected to leave him over it."

Again, we should not conflate our terms. Whether or not she is 'expected' to leave him is exclusive of her 'right' to, particularly in consideration of their child, but also in consideration of her own value. As I said earlier, the takeaway is that she is doing this for a reason, but that reason escapes our knowledge at present.

Kudos to PJMedia for their infinite patience as demonstrated by their decision to 'Let Sarge On' (our anagram of the day for 'General Tso).

It's unlikely that Weiner, who has trumpeted his Judaism in past campaigns, is a crypto-Muslim. However, it is very likely that Abedin's marriage to a Jew is a civil arrangement which has some unspoken standing under Islamic law. How many times have we heard of strict Muslim fathers murdered their daughters for much less than marrying a Jew ... Yet well known, very conservative, Muslim clerics continue to be sociable to both her and Weiner ... these would be some of the same clerics who denounced the reforms sought by Suzanne Mubarak and other women's activists (such as the cessation of female genital mutilation).

The question of why Huma gets a pass from these conservative clerics, while other women are hmted down and killed according to their fatwas, is a very curious and telling fact ... Can you say "Muslim Brotherhood mole"?

Weiner is not her pathway up to power. Weiner is her pathway DOWN to power...
Hillary is her pathway UP.

Weiner controlling the Largest City in the world, coupled with Hillary as President, conveniently puts THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD in a nice safe, centralized location to spread in ALL directions simultaneously.

Thats what she's doing as a dutiful Muslim...marrying a Jew is the sacrifice she is willing to make in order to bring Allah to us all.

Remember, Taquiya and Abrogation allows a Muslim to say or do anything, absolutely ANYTHING, to advance the Muslim Agenda. Islam, like the Democratic Party, is an organization BASED on using lies and deceit and violence to gain power. They are natural allies.

The Bill Clinton has been milking the” International Speaking Circuit” for over a decade now, for the explicit purpose of allowing foreign political donations to be funneled to his wife. Does anyone REALLY believe anyone wants to listen to that Ignorant Drunk for a million dollars a pop?

Al Gore sold his TV station to WHO?

The DNC is a criminal, terrorist organization.

Huma Abadin is a Muslim and practicing TAQIYYA which is a sort of dispensation from acting like a Muslim as long as it benefits Islam! Everyone should Google Huma Abadin--you'll be shocked! Not only is she Hillery's right hand she also has strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and I mean the top brass of the MB! Just think how fast the Mosque-AT GROUND ZERO in NYC would get built if Weiner was Mayor and she was first lady of NYC?!? Blink blink!
I've always had a gut feeling there was" something" in Islam to allow Obama to say he converted from Islam to Christianity without being put to death!
I just didn't know what it was and few apparently did either! He's practicing TAQIYYA--at least until 2016--that's why he can eat pork, etc.! But it's all for the benefit of Islam! That's why he's said "My Muslim Faith" not my FORMER
Muslim Faith--and said that if things got ugly that "He's stand with the Muslims"!
Well isn't that just hunky dory--That's why they quit the Day of Prayer but have a party for Ramadan! John Brennen converted to Islam and what position did he hold?!? No this president couldn't "lead" himself out of a paper bag but that's not what he wants to do--he wants to RULE!

I don't know about this deep speculation as to motives based on Muslim tradition. IF Huma Abedin is indeed an "agent" of the MB, then it makes more sense that she is finding a way to move higher up the American policy ladder, period. Or she is just another overly-ambitious, power-hungry person of the type that has become an epidemic and infestation in modern life.

She can't go any higher.

Leaking information from the Oval Office and Foggy Bottom will have to do.

since parents don't know what is best for children and we need more village and less parent, tell me again why staying with such a man is good for your child. Or are all the libs that tell us about the lack of need of parents lying?

Both are just squirrels looking for a nut.

He really has no standing, and I believe was advised that he would be more useful if he could establish a bridge to Islam, as a part of broader alliance building.

She, and her family more importantly wanted to increase Islam's influence and a marriage seemed a good idea, at least to start.

Alliance building through marriage, and increased access is a very old practice.

I just want to know these things:

where did Huma Abedin get the money to buy a tony apartment in D.C. and wear designer clothes and carry Marc Jacobs totes (price $1,500-22,000) and never be seen in the same outfit twice BEFORE she married the disgusting Antony Weiner?

And why was she never subjected to a national security background check when she worked for a Muslim Brotherhood publication?

The stench that comes from D.C. permeates the entire nation.

The money either came from the Clintons (there is strong evidence that Huma is Hillary's lover) or directly from the Muslim Brotherhood.

A dispensation in Islam known as Taqiyaa allows Muslims to publicly deny their faith, hide it, or not abide by Muslim law in order to avoid persecution. Additionally, many Muslim scholars added that Taqiyya can be allowed if it furthers the cause of Islam in infidel societies.

Huma, it should be remembered, was not married into the Jewish religion (the religion of her husband). As a matter of fact, former President Clinton married Huma and Anthony in a secular ceremony. It is strictly forbidden for Muslim women to marry infidels; they are to have no sexual contact with any man -but especially infidels. Also, Muslim parents are obligated by Islamic law to make sure they only marry their daughters off to Muslim men. And if their daughters are not practicing or devout Muslims, parents are commanded by the Quran to keep their daughters from marrying.

Huma and her mother, in other words had to have been given a special dispensation by mullah. Otherwise, calling her a devout Muslim is a misnomer if not outright deception. Her standing in the MB let alone Muslims at large would be nil. Huma represents a direct pipeline that connects the MB to the highest ring of power in the US. Whom she or her husband sleeps with is immaterial if you are a MB power broker. She could be involved in a Jewish swingers group for all they care as long as she furthers their agenda.

I'm new to finding out about taqiyya---but for years I knew there had to be something that allows Obama to say he's not still a Muslim and that he converted to Christianity! If Rev. Wright is Christianity then no thanks but to get back on point--he eats pork, etc.! He has slowly let it be known that he is a Muslim by saying in an interview that "My Muslim faith"--not my FORMER Muslim faith--also he said that if things got ugly, "He'd stand with the Muslims"!!!
Well thanks buddy but Muslims want to KILL ALL OF US but that's where he's stand?!? And then wants us to believe he's and American and only has America's best interests at heart when everything he's done is to tear us down--make us poorer--and put himself, as a Muslim, in total CONTROL!
His "green" cr@p has gone nowhere and it's be nice if we knew where all the money from these failed companies REALLY WENT!! He doesn't want coal or oil so our, ouote."Our energy costs will necessarily skyrocket"!!
Gee thanks--what a guy!! he needs to be IMPEACHED TODAY!!!

Perhaps there has been none and sexting is Weiners outlet.

The kid had to come from somewhere. I've been suspecting that Bill Clinton was the sperm donor.
