Clinton Aide Huma Abedin Edited Radical Islamic Journal
But why the "Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs"? PJ Media's Andrew McCarthy explained the reasoning behind the name, back in 2012, using a report from jihadist-turned-Christian Walid Shoebat.
In the course of researching the Abedin family's ties to the Saudi Kingdom and the [Muslim] Brotherhood, Shoebat came across a document he has fittingly described as a "manifesto." It is a book commissioned by King Abdullah's predecessor, eponymously titled The Efforts of the Servant of the Two Holy Places, King Fahd bin Abdul Aziz, to Support the Muslim Minorities. (The king of Saudi Arabia is deemed custodian of Mecca and Medina, Islam's "two holy places.") The book explains that "Muslim Minority Affairs" is not merely an entity; it is shorthand for a long-term, high-priority policy to spread Islam, until, finally, it comes to dominate the non-Islamic nations of the world.
Shoebat explained that the book "spoke of recruiting Muslims that live in non-Muslim lands and transforming them as a collective unit. It spoke of already established centers, educational programs, mosques and organizations in the United States like [the Islamic Society of North America] and [the Muslim Students Association], all geared towards hindering any Western plan for Muslim assimilation in a non-Muslim host nation."
The Muslim-turned-Christian noted that the "Muslim Minority Affairs" strategy is designed "to transform a nation from within, where a minority population can act as a fifth column, incubating in the host nation with the intent of gradually implementing Wahhabist plans." Wahhabism is the fundamentalist Islam that forms the religion, law, and comprehensive social system of Saudi Arabia.
In 2010, Huma Abedin arranged for then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to speak alongside her mother Saleha at an all-girls college in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. In that speech, Clinton said Americans must do better to get past "the stereotypes and the mischaracterizations" of the oppressed Saudi woman. She also told the burqa-clad girls that not all American girls go "around in a bikini bathing suit."
Clinton did not protest the human rights violations Saudi women suffer under institutionalized Sharia (law), which Abedin's mother actively promotes. Despite being a "champion of women's rights," Clinton seemed determined not to oppose any of the restrictive laws, which bar women from driving or traveling anywhere without male "guardians."
In conclusion, Sperry damningly asked, "If fighting for women's rights is one of Clinton's greatest achievements, why has she retained as her closest adviser a woman who gave voice to harsh Islamist critiques of her Beijing platform?" A pertinent question indeed.
