New Huma Emails Reveal Abedin’s Mother Advised Hillary Officials Not to Advocate For Women’s Rights
As previously reported, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch on Thursday released 1,617 new pages of new documents from the U.S. State Department revealing numerous examples of Hillary Clinton and her aide, Huma Abedin, mishandling classified information.
It was also revealed that Huma Abedin’s mother and Sharia law advocate, Saleha Abedin, advised Hillary Clinton’s speechwriter not to advocate for women’s rights for her speech in Saudi Arabia.
Via Judicial Watch:
On February 12, 2010, Case Button, a Clinton speechwriter, asked Abedin if her mother, a professor at Dar Al Hekma, a women’s university in Saudi Arabia where Clinton held a town hall meeting, would be willing to give him advice on talking points he was preparing for Clinton. Abedin responded, “Talk to my mom for sure. She will have good points for you.” After reviewing Hillary’s draft remarks, Huma’s mother, Saleha Abedin, (a controversialIslamistactivist), offered some advice: “Do not use the political terms such as ‘democracy/elections/freedom.’ Do not use the term ‘empowerment of women’ instead say ‘enabling women’ Do not even mention driving for women! Don’t sound sympathetic to ‘women’s plight’ or be ‘patronizing’ as other visitors have done and made the students extremely annoyed. They rightly consider these as in-house issues …” No references to these issues appear in Clinton’s speech.
Abedin’s involvement in a major appointment at the State Department is controversial given that Abedin’s mother was an Islamist activist. On July 24, 2009, Cheryl Mills forwarded to Abedin a CV for someone being considered for the position of Special Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. It had been sent to Mills from State Department recruiter Margaret Carpenter. Rather than forwarding the resume on to Clinton for her approval, Abedin simply responds to Mills: “I’m a hundred percent fine with him.”
Hillary Clinton doesn’t care about women and her track record is proof. Women suffer tremendously under Sharia law but as long as Hillary keeps getting money from the Middle East deposited into her Clinton Foundation she will say whatever they tell her.
