Hillary Clinton's Hidden Ties To Egypt's New Muslim Brotherhood President
In view of the aiding and abetting of the Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Egypt by the Obama Administration, it's worth looking at another close, direct tie between the White House and the new Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood president, Mohammed Morsi.
This one concerns Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Mrs. Clinton's Deputy Chief of Staff and her closest adviser is Huma Abedin, recently in the news as the unfortunate wife of disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner.The relationship between the two women is extraordinarily close, and it is an open joke in Washington to refer to Ms. Abedin as 'Hillary's shadow'.
As I revealed previously, Huma Abedin also has very close family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.Her entire immediate family are well known in hard line Islamist circles.
For instance, her mother, Saleha Abedin is listed as a leader of the female division of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Ikhwan, also known as the International Women's Organization (IWO) both by al Jazeera and by Al-Liwa Al-Arabi (translated here).
Also part of this group? None other than Najla Ali Mahmoud, the wife of new Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Morsi. Both are members of the Guidance Bureau, meaning they were part of the top leadership, rather than mere timeservers or followers.
It's no stretch at all for me to see Huma Abedin working over time to influence Secretary Clinton as to the beneficence of the Brotherhood and or to ask her to use her influence as part of the Obama Administration on behalf of the husband of her mother's old comrade-in-arms.
Another aspect of this I mentioned before has to do with Huma's marriage to then-Congressman Anthony Weiner, who is Jewish. Ms. Abedin is described frequently as a 'pious Muslim.'
Such a marriage is entirely haram ( forbidden) in Islam by all four major fiqhs, schools of Islamic thought and jurisprudence. A Muslim man is permitted to marry a Christian or a Jewish woman since the children are mandated to belong to the husband and raised as Muslims, but a Muslim woman may only marry a non-Muslim man if he recites the shehadah and accepts Islam.
Weiner apparently did not convert, and in any event Huma Abedin's Islamist family would have denounced her for marrying a Jew. Yet, they did not. Which leads me to believe there is some higher goal here.
There's a distinct possibility that Huma Abedin may be an intelligence mole, which would account for a number of things, including a lifestyle that seems far beyond her current salary.
As Secretary Clinton's close adviser, she already has access to quite a bit of classified information, as well as having the sympathetic ear of the U.S. Secretary of State and the ability to influence policy on a very personal level.
Also, as a Muslima, she has the religious flexibility to practice takiyah, or Muruna as it is more commonly known among Sunnis, deception to advance Islam.
This is speculation, but for the Muslim Brotherhood leadership, can you imagine a better placed mole than Huma Abedin?
