The MB has indeed infiltrated the federal government, the continued refusal by many to take it seriously is hampering US efforts in fighting against the jihad, as well as against Islamization at home.
The fact is, if Abedin’s Muslim Brotherhood connections compromised the secretary of state, they would compromise her husband’s mayoral run in New York City – and, come to think of it, her “mother figure’s” run for the White House.
Weiner’s “Sexting” Revelations Miss the Real Juicy Stuff: Huma’s MB Connections
More than 5,000 words into the New York Times Magazine report on everything ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., and his wife, Huma Abedin, want you to know about Weiner’s “sexting” scandal that led him to resign from Congress in 2011, reporter Jonathan Van Meter pauses the story.
Van Meter, a contributing editor at Vogue and New York Magazine, had worked diligently on this New York Times Sunday Magazine cover story – multiple interviews with Weiner and Abedin, both as a couple and separately. On some level, the prurient banality of what he was writing about must have gotten to him.
As he described listening to Weiner discuss the “original behavior” that culminated in the elected official, husband and father-to-be sending a photo of his own torso “wearing gray boxer briefs and an obvious erection” to 45,000 Twitter followers (rather than privately to a 21-year-old college student in Seattle), Van Meter writes: “I startled myself that day when, after two hours of listening while he unburdened himself, I heard these words come out of my mouth: ‘Maybe we should stop there for now.’ Never has an interview felt so much like a therapy session.”
In 8,000 words, the paper “of record” could find no room to mention Abedin’s far more significant scandal in her own right. I refer to Abedin’s extensively documented familial and professional ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
These ties start with Abedin’s parents, who were recruited by Abdullah Omar Naseef, a leading Muslim Brotherhood figure and later financier of the al-Qaida terror network, to run a Saudi-supported think tank in Jeddah. The think tank produces a publication called the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs.
Having studied the inter-relationships among the Abedin family, the Saudi government and the Brotherhood in depth, former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy explains the academic concept of “Muslim minority affairs” – which, in effect, constitute the Saudi-funded, Brotherhood-supervised Abedin family business – as “shorthand for a long-term, high-priority policy to spread Islam until, finally, it comes to dominate the non-Islamic nations of the world.”
To be sure, this is a giant red flag over the background of someone whom Van Meter describes as the secretary of state’s “senior adviser.”
