One of Hillary Clinton’s most relied upon confidants, Huma Abedin, worked for a radical Muslim journal that, among other things, opposed women’s rights and blamed the United States for the attacks on the World Trade Center towers in 2001.
For a decade, Huma Abedin edited a radical Muslim publication that opposed women’s rights and blamed the US for 9/11 https://t.co/5n5B3Ve5pC

Here are a couple of pull-quotes from the New York Post’s story:
One of Clinton’s biggest accomplishments listed on her campaign Web site is her support for the UN women’s conference in Bejing in 1995, when she famously declared, “Women’s rights are human rights.” Her speech has emerged as a focal point of her campaign, featured prominently in last month’s Morgan Freeman-narrated convention video introducing her as the Democratic nominee.
However, soon after that “historic and transformational” 1995 event, as Clinton recently described it, her top aide Huma Abedin published articles in a Saudi journal taking Clinton’s feminist platform apart, piece by piece. At the time, Abedin was assistant editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs working under her mother, who remains editor-in-chief. She was also working in the White House as an intern for then-First Lady Clinton.
Headlined “Women’s Rights are Islamic Rights,” a 1996 article argues that single moms, working moms and gay couples with children should not be recognized as families. It also states that more revealing dress ushered in by women’s liberation “directly translates into unwanted results of sexual promiscuity and irresponsibility and indirectly promote violence against women.” In other words, sexually liberated women are just asking to be raped.
Can you say hypocrisy with a capital “H”? Wow.

The election of Hillary Clinton will further empower Abedin and any other associates of Mrs. Clinton who have radical views, not to mention Grandma Deleted Emails herself.
