With the news media now profiling New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner’s wife, there is a glaring part of Huma Abedin’s personal story that is not being told – her ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamic supremacists.
The connections not only extend to her mother and father, who are both deeply tied to al-Qaida fronts, but to Abedin herself, as WND previously reported in a series of exposes.
Abedin’s purported forgiveness of Weiner’s extramarital sexting is regarded as central to the politician’s continued candidacy.
The New York Times claimed Abedin was “eager to end a difficult period of social exile” and “a main architect of her husband’s rehabilitative journey, shaping his calculated comeback.”
Abedin has played a visible role in Weiner’s campaign and has been instrumental the effort to portray her husband as rehabilitated, leading to significant backlash from critics.
Some are claiming Abedin is trying to follow in the footsteps of Hillary Clinton, whose loyalty to her husband during the Monica Lewinsky scandal increased her popularity and was credited with helping to launch her political career.
Abedin served as Clinton’s longtime chief of staff, with the two working closely together for nearly 20 years.
Elspeth Reeve of the Atlantic wrote: “As the many glowing profiles of Huma Abedin in recent months have noted, she learned a lot working as Hillary Clinton’s right-hand woman since the 1990s.
“But maybe the biggest lesson Abedin learned was not just how to help her husband survive a sex scandal, but how to launch her own political career,” she wrote.
Media strategist Adam Weiss said in the New York Post: “Huma comes from the Clinton school of forgiveness – power is more important than dignity.”
Politico’s Hadas Gold said Abedin “has critics saying the long-time Hillary Clinton aide might just be taking a page out her boss’s playbook for her own future benefit.”
