Saleha-Mahmood-Abedin.001

(Heavy) Things are starting to get out of hand for the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Her top aide, Huma Abedin, serves as vice chair of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign — and her mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, is the editor-in-chief of a radical Muslim journal.

Huma has spent decades beside presumptive Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton. Working her way up from a White House intern to Clinton’s right-hand woman. Huma, who has been described by Politico as Clinton’s “shadow,” is one of Clinton’s longest-serving aides.

But now we know somethings about Huma’s mother — and they aren’t too pleasant. Here are four things we found found out:

1. Saleha Is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs

 

The Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs appears to have strong ties to the Abedin family as Huma’s mother, sister and brother were all listed as editors for the publication.

The New York Post reports that Huma worked as an assistant editor for the journal for a dozen years. According to the article, Huma’s name was on the masthead of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs from 1996 to 2008, which includes a span of time while she worked for Hillary Clinton.

Saleha Mahmood Abedin remains editor-in-chief of the publication, according to the New York Post.

“My understanding is that her name was simply listed on the masthead in that period,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill told the Post. “She did not play a role in editing at the publication.”

2. Saleha Blamed the U.S. for the 9/11 Attacks

According to the NY Post, Huma was working for the journal in 2002 when her mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, published an article which blamed America for bringing the 9/11 terror attacks on itself.

The Post published an excerpt from the piece:

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.

3. The Journal Published Articles That Contradict Women’s Rights Issues

The New York Post points out that several articles published in the Saudi-based journal appear to contradict Clinton’s stance on women’s rights issues.

Clinton delivered her famous ‘Women’s rights are human rights’ speech at a UN women’s conference in Beijing in 1995. In 1996, however, an article published in the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs entitled ‘Women’s Rights are Islamic Rights,’appears to oppose Clinton’s speech. The article stated Clinton distributed a “very aggressive and radically feminist” agenda. Saleha wrote that the “empowerment” of women was not helping relations between men and women.

Huma recently told Vogue that her mother “was traveling around the world to these international women’s conferences, talking about women’s empowerment, and it was normal.”

4. Saleha Was Born in Pakistan

Huma was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, in 1976. When Huma was two, she relocated from Michigan to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia with her father and mother, who were Indian Muslim and Pakistani academics, respectively. Huma lived in Saudi Arabia with her family for 16 years.

Her late father, Syed Zainul Abedin, was Indian. In the early 1970s, he was affiliated with the Muslim Students Association at Western Michigan University. Her mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, was born in Pakistan. Saleha received her Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Pennsylvania in 1977.

Huma attended a British girls’ school before returning to the United States for college. According to Newsweek, her late father, Syed, helped start the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs with a mission “devoted to the Muslim diaspora in non-Muslim lands.”

In the end, these close, questionable, and un-American ties the Democratic nominee has will throw up glaring red flags for voters.

November will be Clinton’s reckoning day.
