Meet Egypt’s New Islamist First Lady Najla Mahmoud – She’s the President’s First Cousin

First Lady Najla Mahmoud speaks with reporters. (Emirates 24/7)

Egypt’s new First Lady Najla Mahmoud is the first Egyptian First Lady to wear the abaya. She’s also his first cousin.
New America Media reported, via Free Republic:

The world now knows that Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party became the first civilian elected president in Egypt’s long history on June 24. But this isn’t the only “first” that Morsi has brought to the Egyptian political landscape.

Morsi is the first Islamist to get to the presidential palace. He is the first Egyptian president with Mohammed as an actual first name—although Hosni Mubarak and Anwar Sadat injected “Mohammed” into their names for Islamic flavor.

Also, he is the first Egyptian president to hold a PhD degree, which he earned in engineering at the University of Southern California (USC). And he is the first president to win a competitive election, where Egyptians had–for the first time–the opportunity to choose from more than one candidate.

An additional “first” that has garnered attention from the West — especially among Americans — is that Morsi’s wife, as the First Lady, is also the first to wear an abaya, the traditional Islamic dress and full coverage hijab.

Her name is Najla Mahmoud. Born in Cairo in 1962, she is Mohammad Morsi’s first cousin… and married Morsi in 1979. The couple has four sons and a daughter.

Egypt’s new First Lady lived in the United States with her husband while he studied at USC. She has been an active member of the Brotherhood for many years running multiple charity projects, particularly in the field of education, and she worked as a translator at the same time.

33 percent of marriages in Egypt are blood related.

    Completely off-topic: Is nun-garb historically-related to muslim garb, in any way?

    Happy Holidays from the only pundit online that truly gets it:

    As promised, Romney has folded on ObamaCare too, although had I wagered money on the timing, I would have thought that he would have lasted at least a week. But apparently the revenue curve from stupid, imbecilic suckers giving Romney money in the wake of the SCOTUS decision fell off hard enough that the Romney people felt that it served no more purpose to perpetuate the repeal charade.

    Here’s the link.

    I hope every single one of you who gave that forked-tongued jackass money feel the full shame and embarrassment of your own gullibility and obtuseness. This slackjawed sentimentalism WILL BE THE DEATH OF ALL OF US. Your rah-rah loyalty to con-artists who wrap themselves in platitudes so that you can have a “team” that makes you feel good about yourself isn’t noble or admirable. It is nauseating and disgusting. It is truly sickening to see people elevate false sentiment over truth – all for the sake of a truly shallow SOCIAL EXPERIENCE.

    Ignorance is one thing. Abject stupidity in the face of mountains of pounding evidence is another.

    -Romney wrote and implemented ObamaCare’s template in Massachusetts.

    -RomneyCare destroyed the Massachusetts economy. Romney refuses to this day to acknowledge that there is anything wrong with RomneyCare, or the economic damage it had done and continues to do to Massachusetts.

    -Romney’s top aides and inner circle were frequent visitors to the White House and were instrumental in the drafting of ObamaCare in 2009.

    -Romney has VOCIFERICOUSLY defended the concept of the mandate that people must, as a condition of their very existence, purchase a specific commodity.

    -RomneyCare funds abortion with a mere $50 co-pay and forces all people under its control to pay for contraception and sterilization, including the Church in Massachusetts. The reason you never heard anything about this is because Archbishop Sean O’Malley is a slack-jawed idiot who is a Marxist and, like most bishops today, doesn’t actually believe in Catholicism. He’s just a narcissistic, politicking little shell of a man who is desperate for worldly approval – particularly from other men. Sad but true. Someone needs to say this.

    So, not only has O’Malley not complained about the horrors of RomneyCare, but he embraces it and supports ObamaCare. And, as a result, he still gets invited to all of the fancy parties with all of the rich, powerful men whose approval his entire existence revolves around and self-esteem depends upon. And I’m sure that he also lives in complete terror of having some rich, powerful man like Mitt Romney come up to him at a party, smile, lean in, and ask, “You don’t really believe that a piece of bread turns into God, do you?” The vast majority of bishops today are embarrassed and humiliated by the Eucharist. Hence the entire problem. It all really does come down to that, whether you understand that or not. Someone has to say it.

    -Mitt Romney will never, ever repeal ObamaCare. The Congress will never, ever repeal ObamaCare. The only way to get rid of ObamaCare is a junta or civil war and the establishment of the Second American Republic. The First American Republic is dead, and it is never, ever coming back.

    I will not be celebrating Independence Day tomorrow, because to do so would be utterly hypocritical and a lie. The First Republic is dead, and to pretend that it isn’t only feeds and enables the usurpers and tyrants who are desecrating its corpse in order to give themselves the appearance of legitimacy. If I live to see the establishment of the Second American Republic, THAT date will I observe.

    The Black American Flag, flown in distress, is my flag now.


    I’m in South Haven, MI — going to watch the fireworks this evening as I have for the last many years — expecting violent-flash-mob activity in town as I have for the last three. Wish I had a video camera, like I did last year. Not to mention, a CCW permit.

    It’s a nice little resort town. Until the 4th fireworks. Then it’s every Treyvon and DeeDee from Kalamazoo to Chicago, acting as this culture tends to act lately: like animals.

    And this year, we’re short on law enforcement, I’ve heard. Wonderful.

    #1 yes, but only because Islam stole and then perverted a holy and amazing and wonderful thing, like they did with their entire religion.

    Catholicism doesn’t cover women because they are inferior beasts, or because Catholic men just can’t help but rape uncovered Catholic women.

    The reason is much, much deeper, and beautiful.

  • Rachelle

    I didn’t know that.

    No wonder so many Muslims are retards.

    Fat chance that Egypt could build another pyramid with its present sorry demographics.

    #11 on pyramid building.

    Nice thought. Certainly Israel is the only country in the region capable of inventing anything now.

    Obama, Holder, Rev. Wright and Al Sharpton probably subscribe to the Black History claim that sub-Saharan Africans built the pyramids, etc. I left out Jesse Jackson because I am not sure he knows there are pyramids in Egypt.

    Without stealing the achievements of other people a Black History book would be a blank page. I don’t think they have really built anything. Of course, if it were a collection of rap sheets it would require many volumes.

    In any event, I believe genetic tests on bodies of the pyramid builders found in nearby graves suggest that they actually were the ancestors of modern Egyptians. Unfortunately, that gene pool took a turn for the worse after the introduction of Islam.

    HILLARY TIED TO NEW MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD PRESIDENT ~> Radical links run through secretary of state’s chief of staff

    Rush: ‘Muslim Sisterhood’ Huma Abedin’s Mom Is Best Friends With Egypt’s First Lady

    Saleha Mahmood Abedin, the mother of Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff, reportedly served in the women’s division of the Muslim Brotherhood alongside the wife of Egypt’s new president, the Brotherhood’s Mohammed Mursi.

    Burkas and great is that?
    And the mBrotherhood is now in control of Egypt..very nice.
    Barack and Hillary must be running around giving each other high 5’s.
    All is proceeding according to plan.

  • progressoverpeace

    Egypt’s new First Lady Najla Mahmoud is the first Egyptian First Lady to wear the abaya. She’s also his first cousin.

    So, she’s the First first cousin lady in a sheet?

  • progressoverpeace

    Fat chance that Egypt could build another pyramid with its present sorry demographics.

    The present day Egyptians are mostly the arab conquerors of Egypt. All that’s left of the ancient Egyptians are basically the Coptic Christians the arabs are busy blowing up.

  • lizzy84

    May God have mercy on the Coptic Christians, and bring them to a safe haven.

  • Path

    Yes Lizzy, may God please have mercy on those exposed and subject to Islam.

    I want to know where NOW (National Organization of Woman) has gone over the last three years or so. Where do they stand on honor killings, where do they stand on women no longer being able to drive, where do they stand on young women students being poisened by radical Islamists, where do they stand on women no longer being able to handle banannas or cucumbers (I kid you not) as they might be seen as sexual???

  • Flintstone F.

    Trick or treat?

    islam leaks classified info.

  • lizzy84

    I hear you. Hypocrisy is not a concept that applies to left-sided hack groups like NOW and progressives.
    They have no shame.

    Allegedly, yes–the vatican created both roman catholicism (the Universal religion) and islam as a violent attempt to destroy the jooos and eliminate Israel.

    Muslim society is tribal. Muslim tribes are made up of several clans. Clans are composed of several blood related families. Inter family marriage between first cousins keeps political and economic power within the clans. All of the above are reasons why western civilization is deluded for wishing that they can promote democracy within this system.

    Muslims are incapable of inventing anything. Innovation within these societies is impossible which is why the hijab was copied from the Catholic Nun’s religious attire. And the Dome of the Rock is actually the remnant of an ancient Byzantine Church that was refurbished by the British government with money accrued from taxing the Palestine Jewish Yishuv.

    Egyptians have low-IQs, are imbred and are fundamentalist muslimes. That’s simply too much fail for any country to handle. But I’m sure the evaaaaal West will be blamed for all of their problems.

    And most lulzy of all, the Left just loves to bash “Rednecks” in America (nice anti-White racial slur) for supposedly being imbred. Yet it’s their new precious muslime pets who actually have the highest rates of incest in the world. Something tells me the Left won’t be easing up on the “Redneck” bashing though and refocusing their ire towards the islamic world…

    I believe #8 may have been referring to the FACT that the pyramids were built on the backs of hundreds of thousands of ENSLAVED Israelites at the hand(s) of the Egyptians, Africans who were among the most prolific and brutal slave owners/masters in the history of the human race.

    Egypt’s cousin-marriage rate may not be as high as it is in Pakistan, but I believe Egypt is close to #1 when it comes to “female circumcision.” More than 90% of Egyptian women undergo FGM. Mahmoud’s wife is the perfect role model for the muslima.

    [As WND was first to report, Abedin once reportedly represented the Muslim World League, or MWL, a Saudi-financed charity that has spawned Islamic groups accused of terror ties. One of the groups was declared by the U.S. government to be an official al-Qaida front.


    The MWL has been accused of terror ties, as have its various offshoots, including the International Islamic Relief Organization, or IIRO, and Al Haramain, which was declared by the U.S. and U.N. a terror financing front.

    Indeed, the Treasury Department, in a September 2004 press release, alleged Al Haramain had “direct links” with Osama bin Laden. The group is now banned worldwide by United Nations Security Council Committee 1267.

    There long have been reports citing accusations the IIRO and MWL also repeatedly funded al-Qaida.


    In August, 2006, the Treasury Department also designated the Philippine and Indonesian branch offices of the MWL-founded IIRO as terrorist entities “for facilitating fundraising for al Qaida and affiliated terrorist groups.”

    The Treasury Department added: “Abd Al Hamid Sulaiman Al-Mujil, a high-ranking IIRO official [Executive Director of its Eastern Province Branch] in Saudi Arabia, has used his position to bankroll the al Qaida network in Southeast Asia. Al-Mujil has a long record of supporting Islamic militant groups, and he has maintained a cell of regular financial donors in the Middle East who support extremist causes.”


    Despite its offshoots being implicated in terror financing, the U.S. government never designated the MWL itself as a terror-financing charity. Many have speculated the U.S. has been trying to not embarrass the Saudi government.]
