Skip to comments.Muslim Keith Ellison presses Michelle Bachmann on claims about Huma Abedin
Posted on 07/14/2012 9:58:18 AM PDT by Ben Barrack
Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), a Muslim, has ratcheted things up with Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and four other Congressmen, to include Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and Trent Franks (R-AZ).
In response to letters penned by those five congressmen which went to various Inspectors General to include one addressed to the OIG at the State Department (cc: Hillary Clinton), Ellison demanded the evidence / sources behind the claims that Huma Abedin, Deputy Chief of Staff to Clinton, has familial ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
From Ellisons letter, via Think Progress:
In your letters, you allege that (one excerpt):
The mother, brother and deceased father of Huma Abedin, Deputy Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, are connected to the Muslim Brotherhood, and that she, too, by extension, may be working on the organizations behalf;
Two days after the date of Ellisons letter, Secretary of State Clinton arrived in Cairo to meet with that countrys new Muslim Brotherhood president, Mohammed Mursi. Granted, the Secretary of State paying a visit to the new leader of a country is not shocking but in this case, Clinton appears more interested in helping Mursi win his power struggle with the military than in acting in the best interest of the United States.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will urge Egypts civilian and military leaders to work together to complete a full transition to democratic rule, senior U.S. officials said on Saturday.
Clinton arrived in Cairo to meet Egypts newly-elected Islamist President Mohamed Mursi on Saturday and military chief Field Marshall Hussein Tantawi on Sunday, two of the central players in the power struggle playing out in the country.
She is going to say, you have to stick with it. You have to keep going, a senior U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told reporters travelling with Clinton.
It is crucial that all of the stakeholders who need and have a voice in Egypts transition engage in a dialogue to answer the complicated questions around parliament and the constitution.
So she will encourage Tantawi, as she will encourage Mursi, and civil society, to engage in that dialogue and to avoid the kinds of confrontation that could potentially lead to the transition veering off track, the official added.
Its important to define what transition means at this point because Clinton is obviously choosing that word carefully. In the case of Egypt, a full transition to Democratic rule obviously implies that Hillary wants the military to back down in its standoff with Mursi.
Aside from it being preposterous that Democratic rule can take place under the type of Sharia law that Mursi wants to impose, if Humas allegiance is to the Brotherhood, isnt this precisely the position that she would want the Secretary of State to take?
As we reported here, the Muslim Sisterhood, a group to which Huma Abedins mother belongs (Saleha Abedin is one of its 63 leaders), is also closely connected to Egypts new president, Mursi. His wife, Najla Ali Mahmoud is also one of those 63 leaders and is a close colleague of Humas mother, Saleha.
Predictably, James Zogby of the Arab American Institute, is likening Bachmanns claims to those of Joe McCarthy. Hes obviously neglecting the contents of a Muslim Brotherhood document penned by Mohamed Akram in 1991 that was recovered by U.S. authorities and presented as evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial.
That document referred to a long-term plan approved and adopted and included this damning quote:
The Ikhwan (Muslim Brotherhood) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Gods religion is made victorious over all other religions.
It would be nice to see Ellison address these issues but hes not likely to without a high speed spin machine.
Muzzie Brother Ellison doesn’t have anything better to do? He needs to get himself a real job. One that involves work. These guys shouldn’t be allowed to ride through life on the backs of the taxpayers forever.
My question is: Who the heck are you working for, Ellison?
‘Predictably, James Zogby of the Arab American Institute, is likening Bachmanns claims to those of Joe McCarthy.’
What the author of this piece, and all Leftists (particularly Journalists), forget to disclose, or refuse to realize, is trhat it has been proven by research in the Soviet Archives that Joe McCarthy WAS RIGHT!
There where litterally hundreds of Soviet Agents and sympathizers infiltrating the U.S> Federal Governemnt in the Cold War!
Uh . . . . keith? You muzzies' primary allegiance is to islam above anything else, as you well know.
Huma Wiener (she married Anthony Weiner, the disgraced Dem Cong who sent photos of his "equipment") has done everything she could to get close to the highest officials in the US govt so she could report back to the Mother Ship in the ME.
Kinda like what you do!
If he attacks them for saying she has ties to Muslims , I suppose he would declare jihad against me for calling her Hillary’s Body Girl.
Enjoy my tagline.
Time is well overdue to get these minority gang members out of controlling the mainstream of America. This includes the White House. Time to get all muslims out of American politics!
People have to come to learn Islam is not a religion, it is just a beard for a mercenaries handbook for global domination by a bunch of third world raiders/rogues.
Remember, it is not “Islamaphobia” if they are really trying to kill you!
I think I just had a revelation! Shrillery Clinton may have found a home there in the Middle East with the muzzies. Those men prefer women with big butts and thick ankles, and she’d look perfectly fine dressed in a burkha (sic). Dang! What a great idea!
She should take a page from their playbook and demand that he prove that he has no ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Until he proves the negative, she should say, it’s reasonable to assume that he has such ties.
Just another Democrat Liar, but I repeat myself.
you know the weiner who posted pic's of his errrrrr...you know....
Huma didn’t change her name.
The NY Post said she’s on the road with Hillary 80% of the time.
Tony is a stay-at-home Dad now.
What are the odds he’s banging the nanny?
Hillary Clinton has a good sense of Huma.
