Russians use pretty young girls to infiltrate foreign governments to spy on them. Muslims are no different. Huma Mahmood Abedin is an American deputy chief of staff and aide to clueless US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Abedin also comes from a support background for extremism.

Abedin married Democratic Rep for Queens (NY) Anthony Weiner after his infamous “Weiner Gate scandal” where he exposed his genitals to a young girl online and was a frequent web surfer for illicit liaisons. Many women questioned how Abedin could possibly compel herself to stay with Weiner after the incident. And Weiner is a – Jew… Muslim women are not permitted to marry jews.
Well, if your intentions are to infiltrate there are no emotional connections, and it doesn’t really matter what your ‘husband’ does or is since he’s simply a tool to get you into the inner sanctum of the government.


Taqiyya (alternate spellings taqiya, taqiyah, tuqyah), meaning religious dissimulation, This means a legal dispensation whereby a believing individual can deny his faith or commit otherwise illegal or blasphemous acts while they are at risk of significant persecution.


Is anyone going to apologize to Michele Bachmann now, who first revealed the rumors and suspicions about Huma Abedin and her family’s close connection and support to terrorist organizations in the most extreme  Islamic society, Egypt?


The congresswoman took a lot of heat from the media, not to mention House Speaker John Boehner and Sen. John McCain, for asking tough questions about how Huma Abedin got so close to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with a long record of intimate, family relations with the Muslim Brotherhood.

"" Huma Abedin pretending to be a “moderate” Muslim to infiltrate into U.S. State Department. In reality, Abedin has connections with the Muslim Brotherhood, a radical movement.

Just last weekend, Barack Obama called her an “American patriot.”

Yet new questions about her associations continue to arise.

The latest revelation is that Abedin was employed by an institute at the forefront of a grand plan to mobilize U.S. Muslim minorities to transform America into a Saudi-Style Islamic state.

It turns out that she was an assistant editor for a dozen years for the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs for the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs. What is this institute? It was founded by her late father and is directed by her mother – both Muslim Brotherhood leaders.

A 2002 Saudi manifesto shows a key strategy of “Muslim Minority Affairs” is the mobilizing of Muslim communities in the U.S. to spread Islam instead of assimilating into the population, with the goal of establishing Islamic rule in America and a global Shariah, or Islamic law, “in our modern times.”

"" Huma Abedin marries Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) after the infamous “Weiner Gate” scandal.

Thank the intrepid ex-terrorist turned Christian Walid Shoebat for the discovery.

The “Muslim Minority Affairs” agenda, the manifesto says, works “under the umbrella of the Muslim World League and the International Islamic Relief Organization and World Association of Muslim Youth and others.”

The document notes the king “declared from the first day that the Kingdom (of Saudi Arabia) was formed that its purpose was to spread the Shariah throughout the world, as it had been revealed in the Quran and the sunnah,” the sayings and deeds of Muhammad.

“The greatest challenge that faces Muslims in the United States and Canada are the Jews who take advantage of their material ability and their media to distort the image of Islam and Muslims thereby spreading their lies and distortions in the minds of the people in these countries,” explains the manifesto.

Was this a job Abedin had 20 years ago as a schoolgirl? No. She was listed as an assistant editor from 1996 through 2008, just before she became Hillary Clinton’s top aide and before marrying former Rep. Anthony Weiner of New York.

But it gets worse. There’s even an Al-Qaeda connection here.

"" Clueless Hillary Clinton doesn’t know (and probably won’t believe) that her department has been infiltrated. Americans are so naive and blind about other cultures, and especially about the realities of Islam.

Huma’s father, Sayed Zaynul Abedin, founded the Institute for Minority Affairs in 1979. Huma’s mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. Shoebat documents that Huma’s brother, Hassan Abedin, has worked with Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi and Omar Naseef, former secretary general of the Muslim World League and founder of a group reputed to fund terrorists, including Al-Qaeda.

President Bush issued an executive order shortly after 9/11 designating Naseef’s Rabita Trust, a subsidiary of the Muslim World League, a Specially Designated Global Terrorist Entity, and the Treasury Department froze its assets.

Saleha Abedin also is vice dean at Dar El-Hekma College in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. She helped found the school with Yaseen Abdullah Kadi, a designated terrorist by the U.S. and a member of the bin Laden family. Two years ago, Huma Abedin arranged for Clinton to speak at the school alongside Saleha and another member of the Muslim Sisterhood, Suheir Qureshi.

It’s worth noting the Saudis have funneled millions of dollars to Bill Clinton since he left office.

Advocates for an investigation of the Muslim Brotherhood’s influence on the U.S. government argue a simple reading of security clearance guidelines in reference to Huma Abedin’s family would warrant investigation.

"" Another clueless tool, President Obama, with Huma Abedid and her mother.

Security clearance guidelines for federal employees state a “security risk may exist when an individual’s immediate family, including cohabitants and other persons to whom he or she may be bound by affection, influence, or obligation are not citizens of the United States or may be subject to duress.”

So how did Huma rise to such a close relationship with Hillary Clinton?

If one dares ask such a question, he or she is pilloried as a racist and a McCarthyite.

Just last Friday night, Obama praised Huma Abedin at a White House dinner as “nothing less than extraordinary in representing our country and the democratic values that we hold dear.”

Shoebat noted that the head of the Islamic Society of North America, a Muslim Brotherhood-backed group mentioned as an important player in the 2002 manifesto, was sitting across from Abedin at the White House Iftar dinner.

In his remarks, Obama said that among the “American women serving with distinction in government” are his “good friend, Huma Abedin, who has worked tirelessly” in the White House, U.S. Senate and “most exhaustingly, at the State Department.”

“Senator Clinton has relied on her expertise, and so have I,” Obama said.

Shoebat believes the Islamic doctrine of Maruna has allowed Huma Abedin to marry former Rep. Wiener, a Jew, who resigned his office in disgrace after he was found to have engaged in illicit Internet communications with other women.

Islamic law bars a Muslim woman from marrying a Jew. But Shoebat argues the marriage is “one more reason for suspicion,” since Huma’s mother, a Muslim Brotherhood leader, never denounced it.


A new English-language publication from al Qaeda is calling for economic jihad against America, Israel, and the West more broadly. The publication was premiered this year to recruit in English-speaking areas. The article is quite clear in its intention of economic warfare. The threats mentioned directly match what was previously written in an al Qaeda timeline provided to a Jordanian journalist back in 2005. Targets include oil facilities, oil fields, shipping, the dollar, Western financial infrastructure and other infrastructure (no doubt including our power grid).

Here are a few quotes from the Resurgence article titled “On Targeting the Heel of Western Economies.”

“Any of their ships are legitimate targets, but exports are the key to any economy, including the economies of the West,” Gadahn wrote. “The mujahideen must seek to deprive the enemies of the precious oil and mineral resources they are stealing from us and using to fuel their war machine, by sabotaging crusader-run oil wells and mines in Islamic lands and destroying pipelines before the oil reaches the coast and falls into enemy hands, and by sinking their supertankers and sabotaging their oil rigs in enemy waters, and in the process, ruining their lucrative fishing industries….”

Meanwhile, Muslims must continue to boycott American, Crusader and Jewish businesses and products, from cars and computers to candies and clothing, and we must produce, purchase and support local alternatives whenever possible. Major Western companies and multinational corporations like Walmart, MacDonald’s, Proctor and Gamble, Microsoft, Nestle and Unilever are symbols of the rampant Crusader globalization which is characterized by the exploitation of the weak and impoverished, and the destruction of local economies. It is our duty as Muslims and as Mujahideen to stop this at all costs.”

Muslims must avoid as much as possible banks and financial markets, because not only are they based on the so-called “interest”, which is nothing but usury, whose users, abusers and beneficiaries Allah has threatened with war (see al-Quran 2:275-281). Banks are also an integral part of the Western-run global economic system which has become a tool for enslaving the Muslims and other oppressed people of the world. Instead, Muslims must start to make efforts to reinstate gold, silver and other basic commodities as the standards and mediums of exchange, and begin experimenting with barter systems as initial steps on the way to attaching the industrial production base to a local Islamic economy and ridding ourselves of the enemy’s national and global economies. Reinstating gold as a medium of exchange is also necessary for ridding ourselves of the usurious fractional reserve banking system that creates money from nothing, ties our markets and industries to the economies of the West, puts us at the mercy of the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and World Trade Organization, and makes us vulnerable to international sanctions, economic embargoes, and countless other forms of interference in our society, culture, governmentand religion.

“Some might ask, “Is it reasonable to ask Muslims to try to free themselves from the clutches of the international financial system before the defeat of Kufr Internationale and establishment of the greater Islamic state?” My reply is: Yes, it’s perfectly reasonable to encourage the Muslims to begin to prepare themselves financially and economically for the victory of Islam, the same way we encourage them to prepare, organize and educate themselves religiously, militarily and politically in order to pave the way for the establishment of the Islamic state! Today more than ever before, Muslims have begun to understand that they will never be able to achieve the economic prosperity and political independence they aspire to without first freeing their countries from the usurious global financial system and the disproportionately large influence of international donors.”

We’ve bolded a few of the critical points. From these, we draw some important conclusions:

  1. The primary focus of this article is an attack on oil infrastructure and shipping. The goal is clearly to harm Western economies.
  2. There is also a direct threat against major Western companies, especially those that do business in the Middle East.
  3. There is an implied threat against the global financial and banking system, which they blame for enslaving Muslims.
  4. There is a push to use gold instead of the petrodollar. It is well understood (and has been previously stated by al Qaeda) that such a move is designed to also collapse the American dollar.
  5. It is implied that the Western financial system will collapse and that is an essential requirement for the ultimate victory of Islam.

Now, match these calls for economic jihad with what was written in the al Qaeda timeline: under the heading Recuperation and Possession of Power to Create Change (Resurgence):


The match is almost perfect. Interestingly, however, the goal was to accomplish these attacks immediately following what could only be described as a plan for the so-called Arab Spring for the overthrow of Arab regimes. Al Qaeda was clearly successful in some areas such as Libya and made efforts in Syria, Egypt, and elsewhere. Once the economic warfare had been waged, the next step was to declare the Islamic State. That was scheduled for 2013-2016. The only problem? Certain elements of al Qaeda wanted to declare the IS early BEFORE the collapse of the U.S. dollar while the leadership wanted to wait. This created a temporary rift between al Qaeda and IS/ISIS/ISIL. Many believe the rift had to do with tactics. There was speculation that al Qaeda disowned ISIS to gain favor with larger Muslim communities. Some insiders, however, suspect it was more timing and leadership. Regardless, it is worth noting that the rift has been closing rapidlyAnd, with the economic jihad underway, al Qaeda will no doubt seek to incorporate the ISIS ground success into the larger Islamic State goals. The primary issue may well have been timing.

Don’t forget that al Qaeda has also been clear about cyber attacks and attacks against our economic infrastructure.

Don’t forget that Islamists have learned the power of taking down a nation’s power grid, by cyber, EMP, or physical attacks.

The goal is to destroy the Western Economy and thus any ability to stop or even slow the rise of the Caliphate and Islamic State. In the same issue of Resurgence, there is a lengthy article denouncing capitalism and any Muslims who are connected to it. Here is a critical section:


Basically, the article goes on to call for jihad against capitalism and the total renouncement of all forms of capitalism as well as the Western financial system by Muslims. Al Qaeda views even economic cooperation with the West to be foolish.
