I have posted often (last post) on the Michele Bachmann/Huma Abedin controversy over Muslim Brotherhood infiltration into sensitive areas of American government. Frankly I am quite consternated that Republicans like McCain and Boehner are blowing off Bachmann when the evidence that at the very least an investigation to clear Abedin of any compromising situations vis-à-vis the Muslim Brotherhood should take place.
Here are two places that offer enough specificity that demands an investigation to verify or disprove Huma Abedin’s connection to the Muslim Brother:
So I am going to follow the development of this story at least until I cease being annoyed by the ignorance of Bachmann detractors.
Below are three articles on Huma Abedin that the MSM largely ignore or denounce because Establishment Republicans and Democrats that are Clintonistas and Obamunists want you to believe it is merely Right Wing gibberish.
Huma Abedin’s new defender: Sister Heba Abedin
July 26, 2012
It appears that Huma Abedin has a new defender – her sister. Heba Abedin, known on twitter as @hebs23 is pushing her followers to sign a petition demanding that Michele Bachmann apologize for raising very legitimate questions about Huma Abedin connections to Muslim Brotherhood groups and individuals.
One can certainly understand why anyone would come to the defense of his / her sibling. However, in this case, the evidence of Huma’s connections is so strong that her family members should be demanding that she disprove them. Does Heba know that her mother is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood? Does Heba know that her sister served on the Board of the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA) for at least six years? Does Heba know that her brother is connected to both Abdullah Omar Naseef and Yusuf al-Qaradawi through the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies? What does Heba know about the IMMA that her parents jointly headed for many years and her mother leads now? Does Heba know about her mother’s involvement with the IICWC, an organization that condones marital rape and Female Genital Mutilation?
Nonetheless, Heba is siding with the likes of John McCain and Ed Rollins and lining up against Michele Bachmann. Perhaps this is nothing more than family loyalty but at some point, people choose sides after all of the facts are out there. When it comes to Huma there are a LOT of very disturbing facts available.
Here is a screen shot of some of Heba’s tweets on this matter:
Heba Abedin Tweets
It seems that Heba is on the same page as CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Arianna Huffington as well. After receiving a snarky tweet from Arianna Huffington, Heba tweeted Arianna a link to the petition that’s demanding an apology from Bachmann:
Heba-Arianna Huffington Tweets
Heba also re-tweeted what a tweet from a jubilant Anderson Cooper, who appeared to love McCain’s deplorable attack on Bachmann:
Heba- Watch Anderson_Cooper_McCain Tweet
On a separate but semi-related note, as the Weiner ‘sexting’ scandal was breaking last year, both the Daily Mail and Global Grind identified Heba Abedin as one of “the Girls of Weinergate.” Heba was apparently a follower of Huma’s husband.
The NY Daily News also identified Heba as Huma’s sister.
While writing this post, twitter went down and we have not been able to pull additional screen shots.
National Review: Bachmann vs. Boehner heating up
July 26, 2012
The showdown between the Republican establishment and the conservative / Tea Party movement is manifesting itself in a ‘Mano a Womano’ battle between Speaker John Boehner and Michele Bachmann over the Huma Abedin case. Once again, the establishment comes across as having no interest in getting to the truth and wants to avoid controversy at all costs (Boehner’s handling of the Fast and Furious scandal, culminating in his decision to hold the Eric Holder contempt vote on the same day as the Obamacare ruling, epitomizes this).
Meanwhile, Bachmann has sounded an alarm that is screaming louder than anyone could have imagined by zeroing in on Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff, Huma Abedin. In so doing, there is now greater public awareness that Hillary’s closest aide has confirmed ties to an Al-Qaeda Godfather (pp. 14-15 of this report). The result? Boehner is apparently being pressured to cut her fishing line because the fish at the end of it is too big.
Via National Review:
Up until this month, having Bachmann on the intelligence committee has proved a good move from Boehner’s perspective. He has praised her in the past as a hardworking member, and he knew she would relish the opportunity to broaden her portfolio. Bachmann still may be a thorn in his side on various votes, aides explain, but she has usually avoided publicly railing against Boehner. That cold peace has ended, and the latest tensions may not end amicably, sources say.
Bachmann has generated national headlines for accusing Abedin, a top adviser to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, of tilting U.S. foreign policy in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist group. Four other lawmakers signed Bachmann’s letter, but many Republicans have criticized Bachmann’s finger-pointing. Senator John McCain of Arizona was the first to reject Bachmann’s claims, then Representative Mike Rogers of Michigan, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, did the same. But it’s Boehner’s cagey response to the kerfuffle that has made Bachmann and her allies nervous.
“I haven’t seen the letter, and I don’t know Huma, but from everything I do know of her, she has a sterling character,” Boehner told reporters last week. “And I think accusations like this being thrown around are pretty dangerous.” When a reporter followed up and asked about Bachmann’s intelligence-committee seat, Boehner didn’t rule anything out. “I don’t know that that’s related at all,” he said. According to a source close to Bachmann, the Minnesotan interpreted those remarks as a warning and a sign of Boehner’s tenuous support for her committee position. And from a procedural angle, her fears are warranted. Boehner may have picked her for the committee, but, as speaker, he could easily take that post away.
Several Republicans close to House leadership tell National Review Online that Boehner is not working to oust Bachmann from the committee or discipline her. If anything, one GOP source says, the entire episode has been a distraction for Boehner, especially since the speaker wants the conference to focus on jobs and the economy. If the situation festers, the leadership is keeping its options open, another aide says, but it expects Bachmann to eventually move on from the controversy.
A distraction? Screen shot evidence that Huma Abedin worked on a Board with a guy who was identified one month after 9/11 as having ties to Al-Qaeda is a distraction?! First of all, bold red flags being waved from inside the U.S. State Department is not a distraction; it’s something that demands attention, Mr. Boehner. This issue needs to fester for the security of the country and once again, Boehner is at the tip of the spear when it comes to the establishment’s strategy of going after its own harder than it does the opposition.
Back to Costa’s piece:
There is a general sense among those close to Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, and Whip Kevin McCarthy that Bachmann is not so much a political threat to the leadership, but a member who needs to be better managed. Still, they say, because she does not consult with leadership on most of her initiatives and does not respond well to emissaries or private counsel, many aides feel that Boehner’s public statement was the best way to send a message — for now.
“If she’s not careful, she’s going to become irrelevant,” says Ed Rollins, the former campaign manager for Bachmann’s presidential campaign. “She’s on the intelligence committee and people assume that she has information that no one else has. So when she goes out and makes a charge, it has added weight. She’s close to crossing that ‘kook line,’ and Boehner and the others may be ready to dismiss her as a serious player.”
Of the Republican voices that have either attacked Bachmann or come down on the side of Huma, the two loudest and most critical have arguably been John McCain and Ed Rollins, which may indicate a bit of ‘thou doth protest too much’ on their part. Perhaps instead of asking whether Bachmann should be making a big deal out of these obvious Muslim Brotherhood / al-Qaeda connections, we should begin to ask why the likes of McCain and Rollins are going to the mat not to. Do they have something to hide?
Huma’s been around the halls of power for a long time. Are her Republican defenders ashamed of what they didn’t see years ago? This is a matter that points directly to loyalty to the United States.
As for us here at Shoebat.com, we are continuing to uncover even more. We will be providing an update to the information we’ve already provided in the coming days. If you thought it was big news to learn that Huma served on a Board with Naseef at IMMA, just wait; there’s more.
When it comes to Boehner vs. Bachmann, the former may have the gavel but the latter doesn’t seem to shed nearly as many tears.
Go get him, Michele. We think you can take him.
Weiner's In-Laws and the SECRET Muslim Brotherhood Connections REVEALED
By Walid Shoebat and Ben Barrack
Was Mrs. Weiner (Huma Abedin), the Deputy Chief of Staff to Hillary Clinton unaware that her mother was reported as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood? Did western media miss what has been REVEALED in several Arab newspapers, which remained SECRET in American government circles?
Al-Liwa Al-Arabi (translated here) claims to have leaked an extensive list, which was partially published by Al-Jazeera and several other major Arab newspapers. The detailed list included Huma’s mother, Saleha Abedin, as belonging to the Brotherhood’s secret women's division known as the Muslim Sisterhood or what is known as the International Women's Organization (IWO). Egyptian Al-Dostor revealed that the Sisternood included 63 International members that span 16 different countries; it's also confirmed by the Arab Centre for Studies, headed by researcher Abdul Rahim Ali. Neither Huma nor any major western media outlet even mention what is common knowledge in the Arab world. Yet, confirmed by Arab sources – is that Huma Abedin has a brother named Hassan Abedin who works at Oxford University.
What is significant is that Oxford University, which has long been infiltrated by Islamists who founded the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies (OCIS), has Huma's brother listed as a fellow and partners with a number of Muslim Brotherhood members on the Board, including al-Qaeda associate, Omar Naseef and the notorious Muslim Brotherhood leader Sheikh Youssef Qaradawi; both have been listed as OCIS Trustees. Naseef continues to serve as Board Chairman.
In 2009, Qaradawi's role within Oxford and the Muslim Brotherhood was championed by the notorious Sheikh Rached Ghannouchi of Al-Nahda – a Muslim Brotherhood affiliate now active in Tunisia. OCIS has even presented an award for great scholarly achievement to Brotherhood member Shaykh Abd Al-Fattah Abu Gudda, whose personal history goes back to the Brotherhood's founder, Hasan al-Banna.
(Even the Sunday Times acknowledges that the cradle of Islamic Jihad – Al-Azhar University – actively attempts to establish links with OCIS, where Huma's brother serves.)
Was Huma unaware of all this as she accompanied Hillary Clinton to the Dar El-Hekma women's college in Saudi Arabia? Huma's mother is the co-founder and a Vice Dean at the college and an active missionary on issues regarding Muslim women. The “Women's Division” can be found at the Muslim Brotherhood's official website; an excerpt from its goal, translated from Arabic, states:
“The Womens Organization's goal in accordance with the Muslim Brotherhood rules, is to gain and acquire a unified global perception in every nation in the world regarding the position of women, and the necessity of advocacy work at all levels in accordance with the message of the Brotherhood as written in Women in Muslim Society, and the rearing of women throughout the different stages of life.”
True to this cause, another member listed as belonging to the Sisterhood mentioned by Al-Jazeera is Suheir Qureshi. She spoke alongside Huma's mother, Saleha Abedin as well as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who was brought in due to her connection with Huma. All three women spoke on issues of Women in Muslim Society. An Arabic news report of what happened during Hillary's visit stated:
“Suheir Qureshi spoke of how elated she was of Hillary's historic visit... Saleha Abedin spoke after Suheir Qureshi and beamed in the presence of Secretary Clinton. Saleha's speech preceded the former First Lady's. Then Hillary stood. She donned a broad smile as she approached the podium... Clinton started with a strong word and she spent a long time complimenting Dr. Saleha Abedin regarding her daughter. Hillary explained that Huma holds an important and sensitive position in her office. She ended her speech by speaking of Saleha Abedin's daughter (Huma), that a person must be happy if mentioned in a positive light but there is no happiness that equals the compliment given to children in front of a parent.”
It is sacrilege in Islam for Huma's mother to accept the reality that her daughter is married to a Jew. Yet, neither Saleha nor Huma's brother Hassan denounce her marriage to Weiner, especially when it was considered null and void by some of the highest authorities on Islamic Sharia rulings.
Huma's brother has been key in furthering the Islamic agenda and has worked with Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal on a program of “spreading Islam to the west.” A detailed report from 2007 shows that Naseef was identified as the likely force behind the Abedin family's departure from Kalamazoo, MI to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia circa 1977 – the same year that the Muslim Sisterhood was established.
In 2008, Dr. Mumen Muhammad wrote about why Huma vowed to stay with Hillary even if the latter were to lose the presidential nomination to Obama:
“Abedin assures in press releases of her continuance on the path with Hillary Clinton, even if Clinton failed as a candidate. The candidate's aids and other influential figures in the Democratic Party assure that they do not disregard Abedin running for election or taking her position in the political arena with the help in successive political administrations of the Clinton family itself.”
Indeed, the “Clinton family” played a key role in promoting the extremely powerful Turkish Imam and notorious Islamist conspirator Fethullah Gülen, as he fled Turkey for the United States after attempting to overthrow Turkey's secular government, a charge over which he was indicted in 2000. In 2008, the former president heaped praise on Gülen, giving him a clean slate. Gülen is given refuge and has even had his sermons aired on Turkish television, during which he explained to his followers how to best seize power from the Turkish government:
“You must move in the arteries of the system without anyone noticing your existence until you reach all the power centers... until the conditions are ripe... Until that time, any step taken would be too early – like breaking an egg without waiting the full forty days for it to hatch. It would be like killing the chick inside.”
Gülen expressed this sentiment in another sermon as well:
“The philosophy of our service is that we open a house somewhere and, with the patience of a spider, we lay our web to wait for people to get caught in the web; and we teach those who do.”
Serving with Huma's brother as an Oxford Centre Trustee is Turkey's president – Abdullah Gül. He considers himself a follower of Fethullah Gülen (Gülenist) according to Wikileaks. It was also Hillary Clinton who signed a document less than one month prior to her trip to Saudi Arabia with Huma that lifted the ban on Tariq Ramadan, allowing him entry into the United States. Ramadan is the grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hasan al-Banna and has ties to Islamic terrorist groups.
Huma Abedin's charm, family connections and access to highly sensitive State secrets as admitted by Hillary herself, can have significant consequences. What absolutely must be known is if this circle of public servants was made aware of all these ties to potential enemies of the State.
