Former Congressman Anthony Weiner's sex scandal may be nothing compared to a number of allegations that his Egyptian-born wife, Huma Abedin, has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and it's female off-shoot, the Muslim Sisterhood. Even more disturbing is the fact that Mrs. Weiner works closely with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and has access to confidential, even secret, intelligence, according to several homeland security experts.
A list of members of the Muslim Brotherhood’s secret women’s division, which is known as the Muslim Sisterhood, a/k/a the International Women’s Organization (IWO), includes the name of disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner's mother-in-law, according to a column written by Walid Shoebat and Ben Barrack.
The list, which was partially published by Al Jazeera and major Arab news outlets, has the name of Weiner's wife's mother, Saleha Abedin, on it, according to Shoebat and Barrack.
According to former U.S. federal prosecutor, Andrew McCarthy, Huma Abedin actively worked as an assistant editor for a publication headed by suspected al-Qaeda associate Omar Naseef. McCarthy gained national attention in his prosecution of the perpetrators of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
Neither Huma Abedin (Weiner) nor any major Western media outlet even mention what is common knowledge in the Arab world: Mrs. Anthony Weiner has ties to the Muslim Sisterhood, an auxiliary of the radical Muslim Brotherhood, according to Islamic terror suspect Walid Shoebat.
In addition, the FloydReport.com sources have confirmed that Huma Abedin has a brother named Hassan Abedin, who works at Oxford University, and was a founding member of the Oxford Center for Islamic Studies (OCIS). Huma’s brother is listed as a fellow and he partners with a number of Muslim Brotherhood members on the Board, including al-Qaeda associate Omar Naseef and the notorious Muslim Brotherhood leader SheikhYoussef Qaradawi; both men have been listed as OCIS Trustees. In fact, Naseef continues to serve as Board Chairman.
Unfortunately, when lawmakers such as Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) requested the Inspectors General from several federal departments investigate allegations of Abedin and her family, Bachmann and others were chastised by Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate, in addition to members of the news media.
According to former police lieutenant George Costero, Bachmann's request is being twisted and used by her political enemies on the left and the phony conservatives in the GOP.
"When Sen. [John] McCain sided with the Democrats in lambasting Bachmann, I wasn't as surprised as others. McCain is not a conservative. In fact, I blame him for subjecting this country to the madness of the Obama administration," said an angry Costero.
A special women's unit within the banned radical group Muslim Brotherhood is operating in Egypt and possibly other Arab nations, according to a counterterrorism report obtained by the Terrorism Committee of the National Association of Chiefs of Police.
The report states that the deputy chairman of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mahmoud Ezzat, was arrested with other members of the al-Qaeda-affiliated group and that investigators uncovered evidence of a group of women who serve as "mules" to deliver messages and act as messengers for the terrorist group.
According to Middle East reports, the secret "sisterhood' is being likened to a group of female terror group members that operated in the 1960s, especially in operations targeting Israel.
Sayyid Qutb, an early Brotherhood leader, taught that Muslim society had turned its back on Islam and had to return to its roots. He advocated violent revolution in order to overthrow secular governments and restore Islamic rule. He was captured, tried and executed by the Egyptian government in 1966.
The women's secret unit was created much in the same way that the Muslim Brotherhood was founded, according to U.S. intelligence sources.
While the radical Muslim Brotherhood is banned in Egypt, it is praised by many Egyptians and government officials wink at its continuing activism. In the 2005 parliamentary elections, the Brotherhood's candidates, who can only stand as independents, won 88 seats (20% of the total) to form the largest opposition bloc, despite many violations of the electoral process, including the arrest of hundreds of Brotherhood members. Meanwhile, the legally approved opposition parties won only 14 seats.
The history of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt following its founding in 1928 has been one of huge growth followed by successive government crackdowns.
Both royal and nationalist Egyptian governments suppressed the Brotherhood in 1948, 1954, 1965 after plots, or alleged plots, of assassination and overthrow were uncovered. Periodic suppressions have continued even after the Brotherhood officially renounced violence in the 1970s.
What's become disturbing is the ascension of the Muslim Brotherhood to the Egyptian presidency and the Obama administration's cozy relationship with the Brotherhood's members.
