The great thing about the Huma Abedin - Anthony Weiner marriage is that it makes the Bill and Hillary marriage look downright plausible.
Every now and then, Huma Abedin, Hillary's No. 2, dives out of her mole hole for a profile. On these rare occasions, the piece is invariably fawning and consists mainly of praising Huma's fashion style and her problem solving skills.
The latest Vogue piece is no different. It has some of the window dressing of journalism, but it's blatant public relations. In fact there's no obvious way to differentiate it from something that the Clinton campaign would just arrange to have done. The giant sucking hole at the center though is its premise.
Vogue has to sell Huma Abedin as a smart, sophisticated and strong woman. Who is married to a man whose cheating turned her into a national joke. It's the Hillary problem, in other words.
The answer? Islam.
In the longer term, she says she leaned on her faith—Abedin is a practicing Muslim—and what she calls “a really supportive group of friends and colleagues.”
Islam would certainly tell Huma to shut up and put up with her husband's cheating. Unfortunately it would also tell her to stab him in his sleep because he's a Jew. So you have to split the difference.
When Abedin was two, they moved from Kalamazoo, Michigan, where she’d been born, to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, to teach. (Her father also started a notable nonprofit, the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs.)
That's one way of describing it.
At its root, the "Muslim Minority Affairs" agenda is part of a grand plan to destroy America from within, in a stealth manner, exactly as the Muslim Brotherhood outlined in its 1991 "General Strategic Goal" memorandum. Journalist Andrew C. McCarthy summarizes the strategy as follows:
"The Saudi-constructed, Brotherhood-conducted Islamist infrastructure in the West is on a mission—the 'Muslim Minority Affairs' mission. It seeks to grow an unassimilated, aggressive population of Islamic supremacists, who will gradually but dramatically alter the character of the West. Its goal is incrementally to infiltrate sharia principles in our law, our institutions, and our public policy. That means the mission takes direct aim at our liberties, particularly free expression, because [the latter] enables examination and negative criticism of Islamist ideology. It takes aim at our alliance with Israel, because Jews are regarded as enemies and all of 'Palestine' as Islamic territory. And it takes aim at our economic system, because sharia regards capitalism as a bane of human existence—there is a reason why the Brotherhood’s American operatives make common cause with the Left on everything from socialized medicine to finance regulation to gun control to surveillance law."
Notable. Definitely notable.
