Report Reveals Radical Islamist Agenda of State Dept. Official Huma Abedin's Mother
Center for Security Policy ^ | 22 July 2012 | Center for Security Policy

Posted on 07/22/2012 11:42:05 AM PDT by LSUfan

WASHINGTON, D.C.: A book published and translated by the mother of Obama administration State Department Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin provides fresh evidence that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's closest aide has deeply problematic foreign associations that could, in violation of departmental guidelines, "create... a heightened risk of foreign exploitation, inducement, manipulation, pressure, or coercion."

In light of the escalating controversy over the role being played in U.S. security policy-making by Ms. Abedin and others with personal and/or professional ties to the Muslim Brotherhood (see Part 8 of the Center for Security Policy's online curriculum at, the revelations contained in a new Center report-- Ties That Bind? The Views and Agenda of Huma Abedin's Islamist Mother-- could not be more timely, or important.

The Center's report excerpts and analyzes relevant passages from a book published and translated by Saleha S. Mahmood Abedin called Women in Islam: A Discourse in Rights and Obligations by Fatima Umar Naseef. Naseef is a past head of the "women's section" and professor of shariah at King Abdulaziz University in Jeddah, where Dr. Abedin is also on the faculty. The book was published in 1999, the same year Dr. Abedin founded Dar Al Hekma, a university for women also in Jeddah, that Secretary Clinton visited and spoke admiringly of with Huma Abedin in February 2010. [See Remarks on that occasion by Mrs. Clinton, including her comment that Huma holds a "very sensitive and important position" in her department, and those by her hosts.]

Excerpts from Women in Islam in Ties That Bind? The Views and Agenda of Huma Abedin's Islamist Mother include Islamic shariah justifications for the following practices:

Stoning for Adultery when Married; Lashing for Adultery when Unmarried

No Death Penalty for the Murder of an Apostate

Freedom of Expression Curtailed to What Benefits Islam

Women's Right to Participate in Armed Jihad

Social Interaction Between the Sexes is Forbidden

Women Have No Right to Abstain from Sex with their Husbands

A Woman Should Not Let Anyone Into the House Unless Approved by Her Husband

Female Genital Mutilation is Allowed

Man-Made Laws "Enslave Women"

The organization responsible for the publication of Women in Islam was the International Islamic Committee for Woman & Child (IICWC), chaired at the time by Dr. Abedin. IICWC misleadingly describes itself as "an international organization of concerned women who are committed to improving the condition of women and children around the world." In fact, like the Muslim Brotherhood, the Muslim World League (MWL) and other Islamist organizations with which it is associated, the IICWC is committed to eviscerating the rights of women and children by imposing everywhere shariah, a code that denies them fundamental - and, in the United States, constitutional - liberties.

Specifically, the book published by Dr. Abedin wholeheartedly affirms: limits on women's free expression; the permissibility of stoning as a punishment for adultery, killing of apostates and female genital mutilation; the contention that "man-made laws" enslave women; and more. It also endorses women's right to fight in armed jihad. Women in Islam is available online and sold at the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs, an Islamist organization co-founded by Huma Abedin's mother and her late father, Dr. Syed Zainul Abedin.

On July 21, former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy posted an essay at National Review Online that should be required reading for everyone commenting on the request by five Members of Congress led by Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota for Inspector General investigations of Muslim Brotherhood influence operations within the U.S. government. In it, he observed that the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs "was backed by the Muslim World League. As the Hudson Institute's Zeyno Baran relates, the MWL was started by the Saudi government in 1962 ‘with Brotherhood members in key leadership positions.' It has served as the principal vehicle for the propagation of Islamic supremacism by the Saudis and the Brotherhood."

Mr. McCarthy notes that:

The five House conservatives...are asking questions that adults responsible for national security should feel obliged to ask: In light of Ms. Abedin's family history, is she someone who ought to have a security clearance, particularly one that would give her access to top-secret information about the Brotherhood? Is she, furthermore, someone who may be sympathetic to aspects of the Brotherhood's agenda, such that Americans ought to be concerned that she is helping shape American foreign policy?

Andrew McCarthy, who successfully prosecuted the Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdul Rahman - a convicted terrorist and clerical inspiration for jihadists worldwide, whose release from federal prison at the insistence of Muslim Brother and Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi has been the subject of discussions within and enabled by Mrs. Clinton's State Department - goes on to observe that:

The State Department is particularly wary when it comes to the category of ‘foreign influence' - yes, it is a significant enough concern to warrant its own extensive category in background investigations. No criminal behavior need be shown to deny a security clearance; access to classified information is not a right, and reasonable fear of "divided loyalties" is more than sufficient for a clearance to be denied. The [Department's own security] guidelines probe ties to foreign countries and organizations because hostile elements could "target United States citizens to obtain protected information" or could be "associated with a risk of terrorism." Note: The Brotherhood checks both these boxes.

Frank J. Gaffney, Jr., President of the Center for Security Policy, said upon the release of the Center's new report, Ties That Bind? The Views and Agenda of Huma Abedin's Islamist Mother:

In the interest of informing the debate about the need to investigate Huma Abedin's ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and its agenda, and those of others shaping policy in the Obama administration, the Center for Security Policy offers in Ties That Bind? further cause for such an investigation. That includes, for instance, evidence of Dr. Saleha Abedin's personal involvement with the International Islamic Committee on Woman and Child's affiliated organization, the International Islamic Council for Da'wah and Relief (IICDR). The IICDR was banned in Israel in 2008 for its collaboration with Muslim Brotherhood cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi's Union for Good in the funding of the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization, Hamas. In the United States, the Union for Good was designated a terrorist entity in late 2008.

This further documentation of Dr. Abedin's positions on shariah law, her leadership of the IICWC and its affiliation with a designated terrorist entity such as the IICDR makes plain that a thorough investigation is fully justified regarding her daughter's access to classified information and policy-influencing role. In particular, in connection with the latter, Ties That Bind powerfully reinforces the Center's earlier warning that the IICWC is currently advocating for the repeal of Egypt's Mubarak-era prohibitions on female genital mutilation, child marriage, and marital rape, on the grounds that such prohibitions run counter to shariah. Americans want no part of such an agenda. They should they have no reason for concern that senior officials in their government are stealthily encouraging it.

As soon as Hillary can obtain a copy of obozo’s “I am offended” speech and the one used by Janet Napolitano - also an “I am offended” speech, we will soon see that Hillary is also “offended.”

Just what we thought all along - there are an awful lot of offensive people in this administration.

Duplicate - sorry - slow posting!

It is now 1:10 pm in the Eastern time zone. Post is 2:54 pm... Can anyone tell me what is wrong with the time on FR? I thought it had been straightened out this a.m., but now appears as screwy as yesterday.

If there is a time zone east of where I am, I have no idea where that would be!!!

It could well be since McCarthy was largely correct.

au contraire mon ami....perhaps not in this article however, Islam surrounds Obama and his stealth administration: (2010: Obama meets one-on-one with Egypt's foreign minister, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, who later remarks on Nile TV: "The American president told me in confidence that he is a Muslim.")

No longer covert infiltration of the government and white house as was done by the communists in the 40s. Obama brazenly brings them in and the masses, brainwashed by 3 decades of “fear mcCarthism” by the leftwing educators, see nothing to be worried about.

The Left is making charges of “McCarthyism” with regard to calls for inspectors general to investigate Muslim Brotherhood influence in the US government. I would like to point out that McCarthy was RIGHT, and history has PROVED that he was right.

Do I see a trend, or do I smell something....

Don’t interfere’: Ottawa warns Iranian embassy over alleged recruitment of expats in Canada

Kathryn Blaze Carlson Jul 11, 2012 – 1:30 AM ET | Last Updated: Jul 11, 2012 3:22

.....>News of the alleged mobilization effort emerged this month in a Farsi-language interview given by Hamid Mohammadi, a cultural affairs counsellor attached to the Iranian embassy in Ottawa, to an Iran-based website directed at Iranian expatriates in Canada. In his interview with Iranians Residing Abroad, Mr. Mohammadi apparently urged Iranian-Canadians to “occupy high-level key positions” and “resist being melted into the dominant Canadian culture.”
The embassy is in and of itself a menace to public safety and our national interests; it should have been closed down yesterday

Mr. Mohammadi, who estimated the Iranian-Canadian population at 500,000, said recent Iranian immigrants have “decisively preserved strong attachments and bonds to their homeland,” while the “younger second generation” is already “working in influential government positions.”

Peter MacKay( Canada Defense Minister) married Nazanin Afshin-Jam in a private ceremony reported to have taken place in Mexico.

Afshin-Jam is Iranian-born and a former Miss World Canada who has since become a high-profile human rights activist. The trilingual pilot was once named one of the 50 most beautiful people in the world.

Afshin-Jam, who holds international relations and political science degrees from the University of British Columbia, also serves on the board of directors of the Canadian Race Relations Foundation. She previously served as a global youth educator with the Red Cross.

TORONTO - The Iranian-born wife of Defence Minister Peter MacKay says she is shocked at TD Canada Trust’s decision to close a number of accounts belonging to Iranian Canadians without offering them a proper explanation.

TD (TSX:TD) began notifying Iranian-Canadian clients in May that it would no longer provide them with banking services — in some cases referring to Ottawa’s economic sanctions against the Tehran regime.

Afshin-Jam says that Iranian-Canadian friends of her father in Vancouver had their TD accounts closed despite having lived in Canada for many years with no ties to the Iranian government.

“I definitely think they are entitled to an answer and evidence, that’s a basic premise of law — the right to face your accuser — and I think there’s nothing better than honesty and transparency in this kind of situation,” she says.

In a statement released Thursday, TD said it is required to comply with Canadian bank laws and regulations, “including economic sanctions, which prohibit us from providing financial services to or for the benefit of certain countries, or any person in those countries.”

Mmmm, lets see now, who is more of a "threat" to the safety and security of the United States among these 2?

capt.photo_1245188299465-1-0 Mitt-Romney-2756

And of these 2, which is more dangerous to our survival?

th 174678_178612982172493_29733_n

The Muslim Brotherhood Agenda as outlined in 1991 in Phildelphia:

The process of settlement [of Islam in the United States] is a "Civilization-Jihadist" process with all the word means.

The Ikhwan must understand that all their work in America
is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within
and "sabotaging" their miserable house by their hands
and the hands of the believers
so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all religions.

Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim's destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who choose to slack.

(REMINDER of that—The Muslim Brotherhood/Islam--which B. Hussein Obama SUPPORTS and which is ACTIVELY working—through “Civilization/Stealth” Jihad—to replace our Constitution with SHARIA )


Allah is our objective;
the Prophet is our leader;
the Quran is our law;
Jihad is our way;
dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

Though we are all aware of Obama's proclivity towards appeasing Islam and Islamic Republics; his negotiating with our enemies (Taliban); his release of captured Terrorists; his support of the "Arab Spring" in the ME which has led to the takeover of those countries by Radical Islamists; etc, many are not aware of what he has done to facilitate their (Islamists) acceptance and appointment to positions of "trust" within our own Government

Here are but 6 of those individuals:

Rashad Hussain

Kifa Mustapha


Momamed Elibiary


Huma Abedin


Daliah Mogahed


Mohamed Magid

Islam is a frontal attack on Christianity and Judaism and its time we understood this threat and called it what it is. We are not in a “war on terror”, which so many politically correct politicians would have us believe.

The whole world is, and has been for 1,400 years, in a WAR AGAINST ISLAM! If we do not stand up against this cancerous enemy, whose ultimate goal is to bring the entire world into submission to Islam and have all people worship none but Allah, then Western Civilization and human freedom as we know it will soon cease to exist.

America faces in addition to the threat of violent jihad another, even more toxic danger – a stealthy and pre-violent form of warfare aimed at destroying our constitutional form of democratic government and free society. The Muslim Brotherhood is the prime-mover behind this seditious campaign, which it calls “civilization jihad.”

For a detailed description of who these individuals pictured above are, their goals and what damage they have done and the real threat they pose, see the following Frank Gaffney and the Center for Security Policy Report:

Muslim Brotherhood in America Part 8: Team Obama and the Islamists

IF after viewing this video, one does not come away with the resolve to do whatever it takes to defeat Barack Hussein Obama, then I worry about the future of our Great Republic.

PS: One should at least bookmark this most enlightening, informative, well researched and documented 10-part Series by Frank Gaffney (Muslim Brotherhood in America) and watch all of it as soon as time permits.


“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

from page 261 of the paperback edition of “The Audacity of Hope.

All it takes for .....

..... to triumph is for good men to do nothing.......!" know, like staying home or writing in someone's name which is the same thing as affirmatively, voting for the closest most of us will ever come to WITNESSING PURE EVIL while still alive...Barack, Barry, Hussein, Soetoro, Obama.

"Oh yeah, we'll stand on 'PRINCIPLES' and show them what's what, then in 2016, we will really, REALLY, work to elect a true Conservative....."

Yeah, right, provided there is still a United States of America left as we used to know it.

FAIR WARNING: America's Enemies Within

"A nation can survive its fools, even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within.

An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves against those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.

He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear." ...

Roman statesman and political theorist Marcus Tullius Cicero

If Obama is reelected in 2012, the chances of another election, at all, in 2016 is almost nil.

And what the Left never tells about is that the entire anti-communist movement in the House and Senate was LEAD BY DEMOCRATS beginning in the 1940s. The House Committee on UnAmerican Activities was created by the House Democrats and the famous Hollywood “Red scare hearings” were done because of Democrat Party congressmen being against communism
