Jewish congressman to marry Muslim diplomatic aide


Huma Abedin

Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-New York, has decided to marry Huma Abedin, a Muslim who happens to be Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s top aide. So, obviously, Weiner’s record of support for Israel, and its susceptibility to Islamic influence, is now being questioned.

Oy vey.

From the Israeli daily Arutz Sheva:

It is not known if Rep. Weiner’s view will be influenced by Abedin, who grew up in Saudi Arabia and is considered a “conservative.” Little is known about her personal life except that her family re-located to Saudi Arabia from Michigan when she was two years old and that she returned to the United States to attend university. Her mother, a Pakistani, is a widely known professor in Saudi Arabia. Her father, who died when she was young, was an Indian and founded an institute for interfaith understanding.

She has been described as Secretary Clinton’s “secret weapon,” organizing and coordinating her trips. She began her career as an intern for Clinton when her husband was president and was her personal advisor during her senatorial campaign in New York in 2000.

The New York Observer quoted Rep. Weiner two years as saying about Abedin, “I think there’s some dispute as to whether Huma’s actually human or not.”
