Huma Abedin is one of Hillary Clinton’s closest advisors. She has also been rumored to be in line for Secretary of State if Hillary wins her Presidential bid.
People have raised new concerns about whether Huma is committed to ideas that are in conflict with established American values of rights and tolerance.
We already knew about the story with Huma and her mom contributing to a pro-Sharia magazine.
One of Clinton’s biggest accomplishments listed on her campaign website is her support for the UN women’s conference in Bejing in 1995, when she famously declared, “Women’s rights are human rights.” Her speech has emerged as a focal point of her campaign, featured prominently in last month’s Morgan Freeman-narrated convention video introducing her as the Democratic nominee.
However, soon after that “historic and transformational” 1995 event, as Clinton recently described it, her top aide 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.

They’re not exactly… ‘Pro-Israel’ at that magazine:
‘However, Jewish Americans have had a distinct advantage over Muslims and Arabs in the US in that they are better organized, more committed, more united, and generally far better adept at working the American political system of presidential democracy.
‘In this they have been greatly aided by the American memory of the Holocaust, the use of Israel as an American ‘strategic ally’ in the Middle East, as well as by the active missionary zeal and political support of Christian Zionists.’
So, Huma Abedin, was working for this journal for YEARS, some of it while on Hillary’s staff.
The journal has printed articles about how Jewish Americans have ‘worked the system’ into politics.
The new revelations have to do with her father’s political activism. Huma, born in Michigan, left with her family at age 2 to live with her father (an Indian-born Islamic scholar) in Saudia Arabia, where Huma remained until adulthood.
This came to light:
Syed Abedin, the father of top Hillary Clinton aide Huma, outlined his view of Sharia law and how the Western world has turned Muslims “hostile” during a wide-ranging video interview that shines newfound light on the reclusive thinker’s world views, according to footage exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
Abedin, a Muslim scholar who was tied to the Saudi Arabian government until his death in 1993, has remained somewhat of a mystery as the media turns its eye to his daughter Huma, a top Clinton campaign aide who recently announced her separation from husband Anthony Weiner following his multiple sex scandals.
Syed Abedin explained his views on the Muslim world and spread of Islam during a 1971 interview titled The World of Islam, which was first broadcast on Western Michigan University television.
Abedin said that Arab states must police the upholding of Sharia, or Islamic law, and explained why the majority of Muslims view Israel and the Western world in primarily “hostile” terms.
The video provides a window into the Abedin family’s ideology, which has been marred by accusations it is connected to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Do her parents’ views, and her own views from 1995 reflect Huma’s current views?
If Huma is one of Hillary’s chief advisors and people are already whispering that she might be in line for Secretary of State, and considering Middle East file is a big part of that role, do questions like this start to become relevant?
DOES she still support Sharia? How does she reconcile that with little things, like the Constitution?
