Revealed: Weiner's In-Laws' Secret Muslim Brotherhood Connections
Was Huma Abedin — wife of Anthony Weiner and deputy chief of staff to Hillary Clinton — unaware that her mother was reported as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood? Did Western media miss what has been revealed in several Arab newspapers and left secret in American government circles?
Al-Liwa Al-Arabi (translated here) claims to have leaked an extensive list, partially published by Al-Jazeera and several other major Arab newspapers, that includes Huma's mother, Saleha Abedin, in the Brotherhood's secret women's division — known as the Muslim Sisterhood or International Women's Organization (IWO).
Information about the IWO can readily be found at the Muslim Brotherhood's official website. An excerpt from its goal, translated from the Arabic, states:
The Women 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 with the message of the Brotherhood, as written in Women in Muslim Society, and the rearing of women throughout the different stages of life [emphasis added].
