Editors’ note: Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has denounced Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) for including Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, among those she has noted for having Muslim Brotherhood ties in her recent call for government agencies to investigate the Brotherhood ‘s penetration of Washington. Robert Spencer’s article in this issue crystallizes why McCain is wrong, and Bachmann is right, on this matter.

On this occasion, Frontpage’s editors have deemed it important to reprint a Frontpage interview (from our June 24, 2011 issue) with Walid Shoebat about The Dark Muslim Brotherhood World of Huma Abedin The disturbing facts that Shoebat reveals in the interview, which appears below, legitimize Bachmann’s concerns. 

*

The Dark Muslim Brotherhood World of Huma Abedin.

Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist and Muslim Brotherhood activist who is the author of the new book For God or For Tyranny.

FP: Walid Shoebat, welcome to Frontpage.

Shoebat: Thanks for having me.

FP: You were the first to break the news on Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner’s wife, being linked to her mother Saleha Abedin, who, as you have exposed, has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

First, let me ask you: how credible are your sources?

Shoebat: Al-Liwa Al-Arabi (translated here) leaked an extensive list, which was partially published by Al-Jazeera and several other major Arab newspapers. The detailed list included Huma’s mother, Saleha Abedin.

Another piece of the puzzle and what was common knowledge in the Arab world is that Huma Abedin has a brother named Hassan Abedin who sits in on the board of the Oxford Centre For Islamic Studies (OCIS) where Huma’s brother is a fellow and partners with a number of Muslim Brotherhood members on the Board, including Al-Qaeda associate, Omar Naseef and the notorious Muslim Brotherhood leader Sheikh Youssef Qaradawi; both have been listed as OCIS Trustees. Naseef continues to serve as Board Chairman.

This becomes an issue since Huma sits in the U.S. State Department with eyes and ears to classified government secrets. Was Huma unaware of all this as she accompanied Hillary Clinton to the Dar El-Hekma women’s college in Jedda-Saudi Arabia? Huma’s mother is the co-founder and a Vice Dean at the college and an active missionary on issues regarding Muslim women and is considered by the Egyptian security services as a dangerous member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

FP: What would you say to those who would argue that the Sisterhood organization is a farce and that the Egyptian Al-Dostor broke the news but that there is nothing really to substantiate this case?

Shoebat: The “Women’s Division” within the Muslim Brotherhood can be found at the Muslim Brotherhood’s official website. Here is an excerpt of its goal translated from Arabic states:

The Womens Organization’s goal in accordance with the Muslim Brotherhood rules, is to gain and acquire a unified global perception in every nation in the world regarding the position of women, and the necessity of advocacy work at all levels in accordance to the message of the Brotherhood as written in Women in Muslim Society, and the rearing of women throughout the different stages of life.”

Al-Dostor’s article is confirmed by top experts in Egypt including the Arab Center for Studies, headed by researcher Abdul Rahim Ali. That with the Muslim Brotherhood’s own official statement gives us a solid case that this clandestine group called The Sisterhood exists, very active and very influential. So influential that they succeeded in getting Hillary Clinton to speak alongside two of its members; Abedin and Suheir Qureshi were also listed as members by several major Arab sources.

Then we have the links, which shows damning evidence that this list was not created haphazardly. We did the research which we shall release shortly; so many of who are on the list are official members or wives/daughters of members ranging from spies, Nazi-style propagandists, Nazi affiliates from the Brotherhood’s inception, Hijab advocates in Europe, and prominent conspiracy theory advocates with a span of influence over several international organizations from the United Nations to women advocacy groups worldwide.

All these are not without a central direction and seem to follow the same agenda shown on the Brotherhood’s official website.

Our research will show links from the Muslim Brotherhood’s own website and other media regarding the list. Be tuned in for the next press release and get ready for some serious shock therapy.

FP: Can you please give us an example of one case?

Shoebat: I will give a taste of one case.

Keep in mind the Muslim Brotherhood is Egyptian and so is Huma’s heritage. The Sisterhood List includes wives/daughters of top Brotherhood leaders mostly from Egypt. We have Najla Ali Mahmoud, the wife of Mohammed Aidalmrsi, who is a member of the Guidance Bureau of the Muslim Brotherhood and the current leader of the Justice and Freedom Party, (the new name for the Muslim Brotherhood). No one can deny his affiliation and his wife is definitely following his footsteps.

So what is the leader of the Justice and Freedom Party (Muslim Brotherhood) saying these days under the new guise of moderation? We have volumes to fill worth of doublespeak that would take decades to translate. But perhaps to show how sick these people are: He recently stated on national television as to “why Egypt needs to ban western dress” and “no one with a full mental faculty can believe in the Trinity”. He even condemned Egyptian monuments as “idols”.

Idols? Does this set the stage for what happened to the Bamian Buddha statue in Afghanistan? Will we see the Sphinx be blown up if this party wins? And according to this “moderated” leader, all Christians have a mental deficiency? And he is serious.

This brings us back to Nazism. This is Nazi-style propaganda and nothing more.

We have much-much more to say about this clandestine group called The Sisterhood. So stay tuned.

FP: What do you say in response to those who would say that bringing Huma Abedin into all of this is an unfair and unwarranted “guilt-by-association” tactic?

Shoebat: When westerners say “guilt-by-association” regarding Huma, they are comparing the Middle East with the Middle West. Westerners need to shift gears into the Muslim World and when they do they will begin to comprehend the significance of this connection.

Huma’s links to a family that is directly tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, including her brother and mother, creates a question that no one on earth can easily answer:

Other than Huma Abedin, has there ever been any member of the Muslim Brotherhood or a prominent Islamist who will not openly denounce a “daughter” or “sister” that married a non-Muslim Jewish male?

It is extremely rare to have Muslim women marry non-Muslims, much less to have conservative Muslims look the other way, unless Huma has a “higher calling” and a unique exception was made for her, since she is an ear into top U.S. sensitive information, or Anthony Weiner has converted to Islam or even both.

There is no other way to answer this unless Huma comes up with an astonishing revelation. The highest authority in Islamic Sharia Faculty in Kuwait has deemed Huma’s marriage to a male Jew as null and void, yet no word from her family or the Muslim Brotherhood to affirm the Isamic Sharia Faculty? Huma—keep in mind—was in contact with her mother when she visited Dar Al-Hikma University with Hillary Clinton. Huma’s dress code alone would be a problem for her mother, much less her unequally yoked marriage to a male Jew.

Huma’s marriage should be a stab in the heart to religious Muslims. She comes from a prominent family. It’s like saying a nun stabbed the Pope in the heart, yet the Vatican issues no condemnation and instead was sympathetic to the woman for simply being a woman. Something would be very fishy. Huma’s Muslim Brotherhood connected family still has contacts, admiration and appreciation for her.

FP: Ok, wait a minute. What do you mean exactly by saying that Huma might have a “higher calling”?

Shoebat: The Middle East has already addressed Huma’s “higher calling” long ago while the West slumbers. Take Dr. Mumen Muhammad in a news piece (translated from Arabic) gleefully wrote about Huma:

Abedin assures in press releases her continuance on the path with Hillary Clinton, even if Clinton failed as a candidate. The candidate’s aids and other influential figures in the Democratic Party assure that they do not disregard Abedin running for election or taking her position in the political arena by the help in successive political administrations with the aid of the Clinton family itself.”

Huma has higher aspirations already to get well entrenched into the system and the Middle East is all but excited while the Brotherhood stays silent.

FP: Look, some skeptics would still say: “So What? Huma is still not a member of the Sisterhood. And that’s that.” How would you respond?

Shoebat: Imagine during World War II, the U.S. government accepted Eva Braun, Hitler’s mistress or one of Hitler’s henchmen daughters to work with our State Department and even be with the Secretary of State 24/7?

After all “Braun” they argue “is not a member of the Nazi Party”; how will that bode with the American people?

FP: H-mm. Ok, well then why is the U.S. State Department not taking this issue seriously?

Shoebat: The U.S. current policy is to gain what they deem a “moderate Muslim Brotherhood.”

This is like saying that in order to win the Cold War with Russia, that we needed to promote “Capitalistic-Communism” or during WWII we should have promoted “pro-Jew Nazism” in Germany.

To take our Nazi example during World War II and compare this to today’s attitude, this policy is as if we decided to engage the Nazis through an inclusion policy in order to moderate them.

    When Weiner got busted wasn't it said Huma was pregnant with child? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE KID? Apparently it was a sympathy ploy. There is more to this than meets the eye. It seems that besides being a pervert Weiner is also a possible traitor. And Hillary should be investigated too.

    • Lisa_H

      According to wikipedia: She gave birth to a baby boy, Jordan Zain Weiner, on December 21, 2011.
      Still, I'm with Bachmann on this one.

      • DogWithoutSlippers

        Thanks, Lisa. Weiner is a Mr. Mom – hardest job this creep has probably ever had.

        • Lisa_H

          Apparently Weiner now aspires to become the next mayor of NYC. I mean, Bloomberg is bad enough but come on!

    • http://frontpage richard sherman

      Weiner’s mother was not a Jew. Therefore he is not a Jew!

      • Scott kemp

        People are you serious? Bachman is only trying to stay relevant and she should not have fostered more division in our country in this ridiculous manner and she should have brought her proof to the security government agencies to investigate. Which in case you havent noticed by the way…there is still NO PROOF! This article is hearsay only and speculation. Use your common sense people. The only conspiracy is the one that Republicans and democrats In DC are simply puppets for huge corporations and that they are all seeking to destroy the middle class and protect the top 2%. That's should be the story and the outrage not this nonsense McCarthy-esque baseless witch hunt.

        Really? A person is not born into Judaism. Wake up

      • Hazmat77

        rich … judaism is a religion – a belief system – one is NOT born believing anything … it is a learned belief and ANYONE can adopt ANY religious belief system they want … That some Jews claimed jewishness if the mother was jewish (a theory adopted by Adolf Hitler and his ilk) is really intellectually frivolous.

      • Van Grungy

        He's non-muslim, that's all that matters

    • Panchito42

      Hillary and Huma are two peas of a pod. Hillary is such an Alynksky devout that her graduation thesis at Weslesley College (http://www.gopublius.com/HCT/HillaryClintonThesis.pdf) is a shameless glorification of Alinsky, who in gratitude offered her a job working for him but she rather went to law school, Then Hillary, relatively well-connected as her parents were, chose to do her law-internship with the Oakland (CA) law offices of Robert Treuhfat, who was not just a Marxist-Leninist of the Bolshevik strand, he was a Stalinist-Bolshevik, from his own words and writings. And here Hillary is, the Secretary of State in the Obama regime.

      Who would give any serious consideration to any vouch from Hillary for Huma? The two women are two femmes with a dubious past…and present.

      Fortunately all those vermin and ruderal –starting with obama– will be out by noon, January 21, 2013, when the eviction by the ballot of barack hussein obama off White House premises will be consummated.

      The WHOLE Obamanation needs to be investigated for crimes against this country. Not next year, NOW!!

      • Jack

        Glad to see you just gloss right over the Bush years with the illegal wiretappings, Karl Rove blowing the cover of an undercover agent, the firing of Justices because of their party, WMD, the creation of Homeland Security which was the LARGEST government expansion ever, but, you know, that Obama is a Kenyan.

  • Steve Chavez

    What National Security secrets were both Weiner and Huma learning? I write often on "FAKE JEWS" so is Weiner one and could he also learn info to aid in the destruction of Israel including from within?

    OBAMA AND HILLARY HAVE A "HIGHER CALLING" TOO: THE DESTRUCTION OF THE UNITED STATES FROM WITHIN! They are of the World View and that's why Obama and Hillary make Apology Tours, agree with the UN like on the Small Arms, and their support for the Arab Spring but only as long as the overthrow and takeover is by a group that will trash their treaties with Israel while dismissing a massacre in Syria, a puppet of Putin, Obama's friend, and allowing Iran to continue building their nuke program.

    • Jack

        hey jack u have the tin foil hat of non thought wake up and smell the smoke of satan it is all around you!!!!

      fake jews are kenites and have been around for a long long long time read Numbers 24: 21-26

  • patriotwork

    Mr. Glazov's article gives rise to the thought that Huma Abedin might very well be the leak of Israeli and U.S. military secrets in the Middle East. And would Secretary of State Hillary Clinton play any part in it. Well, her record speaks for itself, doesn't it?

  • Linda Rivera

    John McCain is a TRAITOR. Tragically for America, he is not the only traitor in government. Obama, Clinton and Huma Abedin, have no allegiance to our nation. Their allegiance is to totalitarian, colonizing, expansionist, global Islam.

    Wonderful Michele Bachmann is a very strong woman and extremely patriotic. If only she could become our president, she would save America!

    • Jack_Kennedy

      and mccain wonders he did not get a lot of the support from the real American when he ran for second place

    • wehadadream

      John McCain's a neat guy – but he does non understand DOD – and his milk- toast Campaign approach ushered in the current administration making him instrumental in shooting the American dream to hell. Any of his "denouncements" are entirely irrelevant.

    • http://www.facebook.com/lloyd.coskey Lloyd Coskey

      Bachmann? President? Did you miss that Romney is the nominee?

    • LindaLoveless

      Oh Linda, get back in the kitchen and stop making us regret letting women to vote.

  • Éamonn Gavin

    With all due respect to John McCain's military record, his performance in his attempt to become the President of the United States of America showed that his days of valour, flair, dynamism and guts have been left a long way behind.
    He should now allow those who have the steel and the guts to take on Islamism to do so without his making appeasing comments towards those connected with terrorists, and/or apologists for, terrorism. Éamonn, Dublin, Ireland.

      Typical response. Instead of refuting issues or disputing facts, you simply assail the intentions of people and make generalized smears. Your tactics expose you as the conformist, lying lefty you are. You're irrelevant, inconsequential and and wrong.

      • Hiernonymous

        Mike, it's a bit frustrating trying to dispute facts with folks who aren't really interested in them, but let's give it a whirl. The Muslim Brothers are not a terrorist organization, they're a political party. Ties to the Muslim Brotherhood are no more (and no less) sinister than ties to the Moral Majority. The MB renounced violence a half century ago and has been busy fighting the military dictatorship in Egypt through charitable work, elections, information campaigns, etc. It's a bit ironic that the folks in the U.S. who are most up in arms about the MB are the ones who most resemble them – that is, the religious conservatives distrustful of elitist, secular liberals.

        • Guest

          Just where does someone register for the Moral Majority party? Who are their leaders? Who are their candidates? How many representatives, senators or governors are there in the Moral Majority party?

          I'll await your non-answer.

          • John Garrett

            Wow! Is there really a moral MAJORITY party? Where are they hiding? If the MAJORITY did have MORALS, how did we end up with Obama and his cronies?

          • Hiernonymous

            Who said that the Moral Majority was a party? It was a Christian evangelical lobbying organization. Its leaders were Paul Weyrich and Jerry Falwell. As it was not a party, the Moral Majority didn't field candidates itself; rather, it (and its state organizations) endorsed and supported candidates. One of these was Ronald Reagan, who named Moral Majority executive director Rev Billings to be his campaign's religious advisor, subsequently granting him an appointment in the Department of Education. (An interesting parallel, as the Muslim Brothers frequently looked to the school system to extent their influence as well.) Did you have any other questions?

          • Cool Breeze

            Yes, has the Moral Majority killed anyone to gain power? Have they advocated the violent overthrow of public officials that disagree with them? Has the Moral Majority consorted with known terrorist groups to advance their agenda. I will eagerly await the FACTS that you can bring forth on this.

          • Hiernonymous

            Okay, let's look at some facts. In the wake of Qutb's execution, the Muslim Brothers engaged in a bit of soul-searching and renounced violence. Those members of the Brotherhood who rejected moderation and thought that Nasser's dictatorship should still be fought through violence left the Brotherhood and formed more radical organizations. Gamia'at al Islamia and Egyptian Islamic Jihad, for example,were formed in rejection of the MB's shift to purely peaceful political activity. They are not part of the MB, they are not a covert arm of the MB. The MB itself has been, since the 1960s, a rather staid, conservative organization that one might see as admirable in its refusal, on the one hand, to give into the attempts by three dictators suppress them, and on the other, to retaliate for mass arrests, torture, and murder by engaging in the same.

            Both the Moral Majority and the Muslim Brothers were movements, not parties (the MB could not legally become a party until the revolution); both supported and sponsored candidates who supported their legislative agenda – both of which were heavily focused on educational reform in a manner designed to increase the influence of religion on children. Typical MB tactics for extending influence included providing books and school supplies to students in areas such as Asyut and Minya, while inviting them to meetings in an attempt, often successful, to win support.

            Perhaps you could provide some facts – sorry, some FACTS – about your concerns. You'll want to be careful about guilt by association, as we learned from the McCarthy hearings. Or rather, as I hope we learned from the McCarthy hearings. MAJ Hassan, for example, shot a number of soldiers at Fort Hood in the name of Allah; MAJ Hassan was a psychiatrist. This does not suggest that the APA is a terrorist organization.

            As for your question about the Moral Majority's actions, well, yes, you could say they did consort with known terrorist groups. They supported, and were even memebers of, the Reagan Administration, which famously had links with both the Iranian theocratic government (and thus also having 'ties' to Hizballah) as well as the Contral organizations who committed terror attacks in Nicaragua. Do you see how easy this game is to play?

            As for advocating the overthrow of public officials, it's probably worth bearing in mind that the Muslim Brothers do not and never have lived in a democracy. Egypt has been a military dictatorship since the Free Officers overthrew the Monarchy – and prior to the independent monarchhy, during the time the MB was founded, Egypt was under colonial control. In short, the MB has never been part of a free country. In this sense, instead of comparing them with the Moral Majority, we might note that the Founding Fathers did kill someone to gain powere; they did advocate the violent overthrow of public officials that disagreed with them; they even arguably consorted with (or, alternatively, *were*) a known terrorist group (Francis Marion comes to mind), and we venerate the Fathers for it. Context is so important, isn't it?

            I'd suggest that the historical record, particularly post-WWII, suggests that demonizing and attempting to isolate governments that don't meet either our ideologica tests or seem insufficienntly inclined to offer favorable trading terms hasn't worked out so well. The Castros, Kims, and Ayatollahs are firmly entrenched in their respective states decades after the administrations that initiated the isolation regimes against them have faded into oblivion, and it's pretty clear in hindsight that our open hostility, far from hurting those regimes, is pretty much responsible for their survival. So as matters of fairness, respect, intellectual honesty, and healthy self-interest, it behooves us to deal with the new government of Egypt in a reasonable manner, instead of indulging in hysteria and trying to invent reasons to hate it.

            Fool, McCarthy had evidence that could not be used at the time. Do a little research and find out that McCarthy was right.

            Second, how about Andrew McCarthy's investigations? Is he disqualified in your view because of his name? If you can't find proof but you found these BS apologist propaganda narratives, you must be a Muslim convert or a complete psychotic dupe. Don't quack about lack of evidence until you show familiarity with McCarthy's published summaries.

          Really??? That seems to run counter to the commentary coming out of the middle east and absolutely runs counter to the intelligence agencies of the U.S., Israel, and Great Britain. Are you citing intelligence sources or simple looking through rose colored glasses. Haven't the KKK and the Black Panthers renounced violence? Doesn't mean that they aren't working toward a subversive goal. It's always the naive who are so shocked when reality sets in.

          • Hiernonymous

            Of course they were working toward 'subversive' goals. They were trying to subvert a military dictatorship. Not sure what your problem with that might be.

            They're not interested in a regional or global caliph. Just justice for the people of Egypt. Smoke another joint you silly leftist dupe and or Muslim liar.

            If you still haven't changed your views, you might do a little reading first before defending them. How are those Copts in Egypt these days? Do they feel liberated by the MB? Oh yes, or course.

        @Rachel: Try using multiple news sources, reading good secondary source books and articles on politics and religion in the Middle East (Albert Hourani's a good start), then go on to read the actual primary source material – read The Neglected Duty, MIlestones, Man and Islam. Dig into the Quran, the Hadith, and make sure you do it for yourself and with a variety of explanatory material, so you're not relying on Islamophobes such as Pipes or quali-apologists such as Armstrong. Read the history of Spain, of the Ottoman Empire. Get a less Eurocentric take on the Crusades by taking a look at Amin Malouf's account of the Crusades and by reading a good history of the Byzantine Empire. Read Ibn Battuta. If you can afford it, hop on a plane and wander around in Cairo and Amman and Muscat and Sana'a and talk to people about how they actually live and what they actually believe. If you can't, find a local mosque or two and ask to visit and talk to some people there. Once you've done that, you'll be offering opinions worth considering; if you can't be bothered, you're just another ten-fingered parrot, repeating what you've last read on the WSJ or Slate…

          But above all else, do not read or listen to Islam-o-phobic claims that deviate from the position that Islam is a religion of peace. Everyone knows that it is. Anyone denying the fact that ISLAM is a RELIGION of PEACE is not qualified to comment on any matters related to it or to Huma Abedin.

          Good luck and don't forget to pray to the god of cheese 5 times each day or you'll end up in hell.

    Come on John. At the very least this article should prompt some additional questions about this woman's possible ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, who as YOU KNOW are not friends of the USA. John, you seem to quick to dismiss this in the name of political correctness. Don't underestimate the lengths our enemies will go to attain their goals.

    • alan

      McCain is a party boy. People mistake the serious jam up he got himself into in Hanoi with gravitas, of which he never had so much as an ounce. He was hated by nearly everyone in the Navy and would have been kicked out for his reckless disregard for life, limb and expensive military hardware if not for his Admiral father.

      The only lesson he ever truly learned was how to weld a knife into someone's back.

      You can always count on McCain to come to his first loyalty, Washington DC's power elite. He will always be at the front commanding the wagons to be circled. Yet that is precisely where our enemies have their first priority, getting their noses into the tent and corrupting us from within. McCain is their most ardent supporter and protector once they are members in good standing.

      His instincts do not serve America well, and he must be opposed and eventually retired by all well intended Republicans who recognize him for the weakness within that he is.

      eradicated… NOT iradicated.. go back to school and learn to spell correctly before you make comments

      • Dave Johnson

        So Ronald, what happehed to the Mc in front of your last name? I'm glad that you have a new gig, as spellcheck. The difference between you and Ronald Johnston is that, he can always brush-up on his spelling, but you are an @$$hat, and, unfortunately for you, there's no cure. Have a nice life! :-) Thanks, Dave

      • grya man

        actually, I think he meant irradiated.

    • Peace

      You wish to "eradicate" something to promote "peace"…. How does one destroy something peacefully? What a painfully stupid thing to write.

      • alan

        Did not eradicating the Nazis bring about some measure of peace? Peace certainly does deserve the scare quotes you give it in connection to Islam. It is the 'religion of peace', remember? And peace is achieved through submission to Allah. Does that sound like the kind of peace you would be interested in? Submission?

        • Hiernonymous

          To your first question: not really. Elapsed time from defeat of Nazis to former allies turning on one another: less than two years. Number of years of real peace since 1939 – a bit less than 2, between the fall of the wall and Desert Storm. And you might want to reflect that the Nazis arose more or less directly as the result of the "war to end all wars." One of the causes of THAT war was the lingering French resentment of the Franco-Prussian War. Which, itself, was a logical consequence of the Prussian defeat by Napoleon at Jena-Auerstaedt.

          Given Christianity's history – expulsion of the Jews in most European countries, conversion under pain of torture in the Reconquista, the savagery of the Crusades – it can be hard to distinguish the religions in terms of demands for submission, proclivity to expand using the sword, and rationalization of barbaric behavior.

      • freedom

        Didn't you learn anything in your history classes? Peace is a time after the war is won by the defenders of peace and freedom. The Muslim's evil ideology must be eradicated from our country.

        I've never seen a basket with one or two rotten apples turn the whole basket good unless the rotten ones are removed and the rest washed clean. That's a fact! Hope you have the sense to apply it.

          Do you realize how large Islam is? Are there extremists and lunatics? Of course, but look at the size. There's literally over a billion followers. You're comically delusional if you think a solid chunk of the world populace is somehow our to get our American way of life by way of some absurdly nefarious hive mind concoction. The evil are mere grains of sand in this overarching beach analogy, there's millions upon millions upon millions of good people — but if you don't pay attention or simply don't care to understand, all you'll find is the more vocal negative side.

        "You wish to "eradicate" something to promote "peace"…. How does one destroy something peacefully? What a painfully stupid thing to write."

        When you're at war, it's not unheard of to destroy the enemy to achieve peace. At least it was not unheard of when we were a sensible nation as a whole.

        You're welcome.

      If you say so. And a reasonable question is, therefore, sir, what IS he? A pervert, perhaps, but, has Anthony Weiner any religious conviction at all? Not a Christian, almost certainly. Nor a Mormon, nor a Zoroastrian, nor a Baha'i, perhaps a Buddhist? Aha – he is a Progressive!

    • TheAntiIdiot

  • Bill Franklin

    With an individual like that having the ear of the Secretary of State, we are still wondering where the security leaks of high-level secrets are coming from? Man, are we stupid or what? To the Islamists, we in our ignorance are what we would probably call “low hanging fruit.”

    • http://www.facebook.com/dozerfleetprod David Stiefel

      I would compare what John McCain is doing to get the media to ridicule and dismiss Bachmann's lead to what Whittaker Chamber had to endure with Congressmen in his day. They also demanded that the media ignore any evidence he had, look the other way, and gave their "sincerest confidence" that Alger Hiss was not a Soviet spy.

      With McCain and the Brotherhood, we are witnessing a perfect repeat of history. And Bachmann, who is as misunderstood as McCarthy was, is getting her information from the likes of Wallid Shoebat, former Brotherhood affiliates who know full well what they're talking about, just as Chambers, a former Communist, knew what he was talking about.

      This is almost a verbatim repeat of our own history. Our own Congress, now like then, refuses to see an enemy infiltration when it's happening right in front of them. And will treasonously shoot the messenger rather than investigate the message.

  • Dennis

    This is typical of why John McCain lost in 2008. He is too worried about how the liberal MSM will perceive him. He'd rather allow this penetration to continue rather than expose it and risk being attacked by the MSM. I remember when McCain stopped his Presidential campaign in 2008 due to the financial issues. But did Obama? No, he was (and is) in it to win at all costs…

    • Joe

      McCain HAD more balls than anyone you could find during Viet Nam. Since then he has become a whimp. He should have registered as a democrat or at least change parties. We don't need him in the Republican party. BTW, take your ditz of a daughter with you.

  • Patriot

    The usual Rino milquetoast backstabbing so-called Repubic's join in condemning the very legitimate and obvious concerns of a patriot like Bachmann

    • Scott Nelson Kemp

      A patriot? She's the opposite of a patriot. Patriot's would not try to further divide our country and promote fear against millions of American Muslims for no reason. She's wants attention and is trying to stay relevant by any means necessary. A patriot and a leader would have brought their proof to several national security agencies currently in place for them to investigate this. There is only hearsay in this article which at least is more proof than Michelle BAuchman has provided. Like the comment a few above this one that talks about being doomed to repeat history if you dont recall the past does anyone remember McCarthyism? Or what about common sense? Scary folks on here if you truly believe any of this!

  • Patmos

    In 2007 Pamela Geller (26 November if you search the Atlas Shrugs archives) wrote about this. That article is worth reading also. Hillary is a "Shande" in her official role and may be, wittingly or unwittingly, a pawn in the downfall of our Constitutional Republic.

    • Scott kemp

      The only downfall in our nation are uneducated people first (and remember we rank between the 15th and 25th most intelligent nations now, and the second reason is our new imperialistic nature where we are the worlds police and occupy and impose our will in other countries for no reason at all and what's worse is that big government Republicans pay for these wars with credit (loans from China). I'm 36 (have a masters degree and two companies) and if we dont stop the imperialism we will be a third world country in my lifetime. Imperialism is how all great nations and governments have been toppled for the past 3,000 years.

      • Lee

        Agreed but this is how the elite "merchant" class has operated since WWI. The masses are at the mercy of globalists. Everyone always assumes our uber rich are loyal to US, nada never were, they do not think like that and are open about it. Our media always control the messages and have conditioned us plebs on every level. We're softies. Even writing this I feel like a tin hat, but I'm not. Turns out the good ole John Birch Society has been right on nearly everything this whole time, and even they were successfully schwelched, demonized, trivilized. Nice decent caring people do not like hearing that the progressive movement is at its core you know what.

    Was Joe McCarthy as dumb and vicious as Bachman ? Her punishment is sex with a gay man — for the rest of her life.

  • Paul

    It does not matter if Weiner is Jewish or not. Huma would be able to marry him as long as the objective was to undermine the enemies of Islam or to advance the cause of Islam. It is even acceptable for a Muslim to publically claim they are of another religion if these are the objectives. Deception to undermine the enemy has been acceptable within the Koran and by some Imams. Don't confuse the Christian teaching that says that those who deny Christ will be themselves denied before God. Islam is different.

  • Rachel

    Of course she should be vetted! She's related to people who are enemies of the USA. We are supposed to just ASSUME she's OK because she lives here? Hassan lives here and he wound up shooting up a military base. When you are war with people, you vet anyone who might have ties. To do less is irresponsible. And that's all Michele Bachmann is asking for. Due diligence.

    • iamhungry

      She was vetted. Even Bachmann's campaign manager says that Huma was vetted. That's why there is no vocal Republican support for these claims.

  • waitforflash

    John McCain is a moron! Why do they always jump to the conclusion first? Find out the truth FIRST, then if Michele Bachmann is wrong denounce her. McCain is acting more like a DemocRAT every day and is rapidly losing any respect he may have gained as a war hero.

  • Honesty Counts

    John McCain is a jerk, that is why he did not win the Presidential election. He cannot wipe Bachmann's shoes. Obama is too close to the Muslim Brotherhood. Him and Hillary need to stop faking it and face the truth that Obama is a Muslim, he hates Jews and he does not like Christians either. He is a self-centered ego maniac who is still trying to sperate himself from the white race and is a racist against white. The thorn in his side is that he is half white and hates it.

  • iamhungry

    If you investigate the claims about her brother being in a society with known MBH members you'll find that none of them are members of that society.

    It's stated that MBH has roots in Egypt just like Huma does. Except neither of Huma's parents are from Egypt and she has never lived there.

    Those are 2 claims I randomly picked to check. 0 from 2 is not a good start.

  • SteveOrama

    I know one thing for sure is I would trust Michelle Bachman every day of the week before I'd ever trust a Clinton. The Clinton's are some serious evil people like Obama, Pelosi and Reid. Do you really feel safe around those people, or do you sense evil… man I sure do and I am not a believer in any religion.

  • SteveOrama

    Weiner described his ethnic and religious background in 2011: "We weren't a very religious household," he said, "but we had a very strong sense of our Judaism. – Wikipedia. Weiner has the typical inbreed Jewish look, like Wasserman Shultz and Bill Maher. Get real people. Does it always take people like Reverand Wright and Louis Farrakan to point out the obvious. Jews are the most racist people on the planet and the people they despise the most are Christians & the traitor Jew named Jesus. You want the truth! Type in Brother Nathenial on You Tube!

    Well well well so this is where the toothless in-bred people in the Klu Klux Klan go to not only write articles that are as fictional as the Harry Potter series (and equally as entertaining) but also to get their information. You people are scary freak shows. Michelle BAuchman is a fame whore and this is McCarthyism all over again. She should have quietly brought her proof to the security councils in place to conduct an investigation. But instead this was her last ditch effort to remain relevant by going to the media and using the typical Republican fear tactics they use to rally their uneducated base. Are you people serious or is this a joke? So Huma has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood? Is this group coming up now because of Egypt? How convenient and how stupid. The illegal Patriot Act and the rampant racism and anti-Muslim sentiment in this country guarantees that Huma probably has all of her phones tapped so what exactly is she giving this Muslim group and how is she getting it to them with all of the eyes and ears on her and around her at all times by the sheer nature of her job? And FYI if anyone is trying to destroy the country it's the Republican Congress who just voted against stopping tax breaks for outsourcing jobs and using that money instead to bring jobs back to the USA and they also voted 2 days ago against saying the multinational corporations that really control all republicans and democrats in DC had to state who they were when they donated over $10,000 to a politician. This way the favors can't be tracked when their money gets these people elected. Between Bush starting illegal and senseless wars that cost over 2 trillion dollars and 250,000 civilian lives and paid for it with a loan from China – with credit basically. Bush and Romney are the people that started this recession and they wan to enslave the American people and widen the gap and destroy the middle class. True Christians could never be Republican. Do you think Jesus asked lepers for a co-pay? He would be disgusted with this rich nation denying anyone health care even a loser that mooches off the government he would want to have health care. You people are scary and the allusions to Nazi-ism are perfect for the target audience that would believe this ridiculous story that does not provide evidence of anything except someone's interview from years ago which is hearsay – meaning if this were in a court of law it would be inadmissable as evidence. This is too good! I'm so glad I found this new comedy website I will make a donation to it actually so it stays online so I can come here to read it when I need a good laugh. Haha. This is too good people! Thank you! Good yet scary cause I think some of you might believe this garbage? Where do you people come from? Oh ya

      yo scott…you do realize that McCarthy was right, don't you? He uncovered dozens of communist sympathizers and card carrying party members – all of which were democrat appointees. There was no witch hunt…he was on target and was only derailed once the democrats realized they were in trouble. I just love the way history gets rewritten over time.

    John McCain voted and promoted the legislation that legalized detaining American citizens indefinatly for suspicion to any ties to Al Qeada which was spawned by the muslim brotherhood. This is insane, im starting to wonder who'd side he's on. Does he hate this country because it spit in his face after he endured torture to protect it?? something is Seriously wrong here it makes no sense, he's supporting our destruction from both ends of the spectrum._I'll admit, its a weak link, but those who govern and thier families(to some reasonable degree) subject themselves to public scutiny, its part of the job. We are at war with an orginization that spawned from the muslim brotherhood, and they also spawned hamas. We need to investigate, Im not saying start detaining citizens without charge or trail indefinately or anything.

"
    Lets not check our back door for terrorists or terrorists ties lets instead keep checking and groping senior citizens and babies. Where does the thought process come from for these people in government and who in their right mind would vote for them. It is very apparent they are out to give this country away to the non deserving.

    Republicans are easily forgetting that we are at war with radical Muslims to included the Muslim Brotherhood by which has placed high level spies within the Obama Administration. Huma is the perfect spy. Her father participated in the Muslim Brotherhood's hierarchy. Huma has the beauty, intelligence, and extreme, extreme likeability.

    Bring all those personal attributes together, a person in effect is the perfect spy. How did this woman with Huma's father having deep ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, how was she able to secure a top secret clearance, let alone secure a position of being Hillary's drinking buddy? The situation dictates that the questions that should have been asked about this woman's past were not.

    Now Michelle Bachman is going to be the sacrificial lamb to the Muslim God's to appease Huma's character that was allegedly maligned. Hillary Clinton is one of the most cutthroat females on the face of this earth, but she is also one of the most naive.

    Plus how could this woman be married to a infidel that turns out to be one of the bigges perverts in political history. What is even more amazing is that she continues to be married to Mr. Weiner. Isn't Weiner's perverse behavior an affront and insult to Allah? Muslims across the world have rioted for seemingly minor insults, but in Weiner's and his wife's case, everything is cool, no problem with this infidel.

    Is this woman a high level spy working for the Muslim Brotherhood? But a even more direct question should be asked, Convince in why she isn't.

  • Pkpost

    I'd like to know why John McCain feels the need to publicly condemn Michelle Bachmann for citing Huma familial connections to the Dark Brotherhood? She didn't lie or make it up, Huma connections are genuine. Too much time the the Hanoi Hilton apparently makes one more accommodating….
