Huma Abedin's Family and their Ties to Terrorism
Mat Vadum at Frontpagemag gave a full outline pertaining to the foundational ties of the Abedine Family to terrorism....
" Born in 1976 in Kalamazoo, Mich., Abedin's mother is Pakistani-born Saleha Mahmood Abedin, widow of Indian-born Zyed Abedin, an academic who taught at Wahhabist Saudi Arabia's King Abdulaziz University. Mr. Abedin was affiliated with the Muslim Students Association (MSA) at Western Michigan University. The MSA was founded in the 1960s by the Muslim World League (MWL), Saudi Arabia’s largest charity, which is also a militant organization with links to Osama bin Laden."
In 1978 the Abedins moved to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Islamist Abdullah Omar Naseef hired Mr. Abedin to work at the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA), an Islamic think tank. Huma’s parents became members of the editorial board of IMMA's publication, the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, which Andrew C. McCarthy has said seeks...
"to grow an unassimilated, aggressive population of Islamic supremacists who will gradually but dramatically overthrow the West from within."
Naseef himself is an extremist with ties to al-Qaeda. In 1983 he became secretary-general of the MWL, an organization which is...
“the Muslim Brotherhood’s principal vehicle for the international propagation of Islamic supremacist ideology."
Huma’s mother became an official representative of MWL in the 1990s. When her husband died in 1994, Mrs. Abedin became the IMMA's director. She currently serves as editor-in-chief of its journal, identified on its website as “Saleha S. Mahmood.” She is also a founding member of the related group called the Muslim Sisterhood.
When Huma returned to the U.S. and interned in the Clinton White House she was simultaneously a member of the executive board of George Washington University's Muslim Sisterhood (MSA). From 1996 to 2008, Abedin was assistant editor at the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs. Her brother, Hassan Abedin, and sister, Heba Abedin Khalid, are both editors at the anti-American publication.
Naseef, the MWL, and Pakistan created the Rabita Trust in 1988 which a month after 9/11 was designated as a terrorist front and its assets frozen. The Treasury Department said the trust is run by Wa’el Hamza Jalaidan, who founded al-Qaeda with Osama bin Laden. Jalaidan’s assets are also frozen.
A radical cleric named Abdullah Azzam and his protégé, Osama bin Laden, created an organization called Maktab al-Khidamat or MAK in Pakistan in the 1980s to recruit terrorists and raise money. Azzam subsisted on money from the MWL.
MAK founders operated in Peshawar out of the office of the MWL and the Muslim Brotherhood. MWL funded MAK using Saudi money “that would eventually go to jihad against the West,."
While Osama bin Laden and Azzam rubbed elbows at the MWL's office the league’s president was Naseef, benefactor of the Abedin family.
On 9/11, Huma was working for Clinton, then a U.S. senator from New York. As the Twin Towers fell Abedin failed to step forward “to shed light” on Naseef, the MWL, or the Rabita Trust.
On Sept. 18, 2006, while earning a $28,000 annual salary, Huma Abedin purchased a $649,000 Washington, D.C. apartment.
