Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin worked at a radical Muslim publication that opposed women’s rights and blamed the US for 9/11, it has been revealed.
Abedin, who could become the future White House chief of staff if Hillary wins the election, was assistant editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs until as late as 2008, NY Post reports.
The aide was at the journal in 2002 when her mother Saleha Mahmood Abedin, who remains editor-in-chief to this day, published an article which appeared to blame the US for bringing the 9/11 terror attacks on itself, according to the Post.
The article stated that the United States’ ‘spiral of violence’ was creating intense ‘anger and hostility’ while the sanctions and ‘injustices’ imposed on certain Muslim countries was creating a ‘time bomb’.
‘It was a time bomb that had to explode and explode it did on September 11, changing in its wake the life and times of the very community and the people it aimed to serve,’ Saleha wrote, according to the New York Post.
Huma was listed as ‘assistant editor’ on the masthead of the 2002 controversial issue.
Abedin has never spoken directly about the articles posted in her mother’s magazine, while she served as assistant editor.
But the admiration she has for her mom is clear.
In a recent Vogue piece, she described her mother as a feminist who was unhappy when the family moved to the conservative Saudi Arabia.
‘My mother was traveling around the world to these international women’s conferences talking about women’s empowerment, and it was normal,’ she said.
But that viewpoint jars with other articles written in the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs.
Shortly after Clinton gave her seminal ‘women’s rights are human rights,’ speech in Beijing in 1995, the journal published a series of articles hitting back at the speech.
A 1996 piece titled ‘Women’s rights are Islamic rights’, that appeared to claim that women who wore revealing clothes were inviting rape.
The author wrote that revealing clothes ‘directly translates into unwanted results of sexual promiscuity and irresponsibility and indirectly promote violence against women.’
It also states that single or working moms and gay couples with children should not be classed as a family.
‘A conjugal family established through a marriage contract between a man and a woman, and extended through procreation is the only definition of family a Muslim can accept,’ the author, a Saudi official with the Muslim World League – which funds the journal.
‘Pushing [mothers] out into the open labor market is a clear demonstration of a lack of respect of womanhood and motherhood,’ it added.
While the journal published the articles, Abedin had just started working for then-First Lady Clinton as a 19-year-old intern in 1996.
Abedin’s mother Saleha Manmood Abedin wrote an article in 1996 claiming Clinton’s women’s rights stance was advancing a ‘very aggressive and radically feminist’ agenda.
She continued that empowerment ‘does more harm than benefit the cause of women or their relations with men’ and ‘Among all systems of belief, Islam goes the farthest in restoring equality across gender.’
Incredibly, Saleha Abedin claimed that ‘more men are victims of domestic violence than women.’
She also helped to edit a book which claims that the practice of female genital mutilation – which has been internationally denounced as barbaric and cruel – was justified under Islamic law, the Post reports.
The articles have only come to light in recent months.
And it may surprise many that someone who looks likely to become the next Chief-of-Staff allowed such views on the devastating 9/11 attacks to be published on her watch.
Neither Abedin nor Hillary Clinton’s campaign have responded to requests for comment.
DailyMail.com also reached out to the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs.
The nature of the articles have even led some opposition members to claim Abedin is a ‘spy.’
Last month, Roger Stone, an informal adviser to Donald Trump’s campaign publicly stated his belief that Abedin could be a ‘Saudi spy’ and encouraged the candidate to raise the issue.
‘She has a very troubling past,’ Stone told Breitbart News Daily. ‘She comes out of nowhere. She seems to have an enormous amount of cash, even prior to the time that she goes to work for Hillary,’ he added.
‘So we have to ask: Do we have a Saudi spy in our midst? Do we have a terrorist agent?’ he asked.
Stone didn’t offer any evidence for Abedin’s supposed terror ties or any proof of spying. He pointed to press reports about Abedin’s family history and time living in Saudi Arabia as a child.
