Huma Abedin with Hillary Clinton

On Sunday morning, August 21, The New York Post, dropped the news that Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin worked at a radical Islamic journal for at least ten years.

Abedin worked for the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs up until 2008. During her time with the journal, she worked as the assistant editor under her mother, who is still currently the editor-in-chief. One of the many articles published under Abedin’s mother was the 1996 article titled, “Women’s Rights Are Islamic Rights,’ an article targeted at criticizing Clinton’s famous “Women’s rights are human rights speech.” In her article, Abedin’s mother argues that single moms, working moms and gay and lesbian couples with children should not be recognized as families and continues on to say that the act of women wearing revealing clothing “directly translates into unwanted results of sexual promiscuity and irresponsibility and indirectly promote violence against women.”

Abedin was listed as assistant editor for the magazine in 2002 when a controversial article was published that claimed the United States was responsible for 9/11. The New York Post provided an excerpt from the article:

“The spiral of violence having continued unabated worldwide, and widely seen to be allowed to continue, was building up intense anger and hostility within the pressure cooker that was kept on a vigorous flame while the lid was weighted down with various kinds of injustices and sanctions . . . It was a time bomb that had to explode and explode it did on September 11, changing in its wake the life and times of the very community and the people it aimed to serve.”

DiscoverTheNetworks reports that Abedin’s mother is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood and a board member of the International Islamic Council for Dawa and Relief, a pro-Hamas group.

If Clinton is elected, Huma Abedin will likely serve as her Chief-of-Staff.

Clinton spokesman, Nick Merrill, denied that Abedin played any formal role in the journal: “My understanding is that her name was simply listed on the masthead in that period. She did not play a role in editing at the publication.”

Merrill claimed Abedin was just a “figurehead” and not actually on staff at the journal, which featured radically anti-feminist views and backs the strict adherence to Sharia law.
