Huma’s Muslim Father was a Radical Philosopher

Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin has some questionable connections to radical Muslim groups and organizations, but by far her most questionable connection is to her own father, Syed Abedin. Mr. Abedin, a self-proclaimed Muslim scholar, shared his view of Sharia law and how the U.S. and Western world has turned Muslims “hostile” during a 1971 interview titled The World of Islam, which was first broadcast on Western Michigan University television.

Abedin died in 1993. However, before his death, he conducted extensive work for the Saudi Arabian government. Abedin’s belief was that Arab states must police the upholding of Sharia law, and explained why the majority of Muslims view Israel and the Western world in primarily “hostile” terms. He claimed Western intervention in the Arab world initiated backlash among many faithful Muslims.

Abedin’s radical argument below:

“The response to the West has been of two kinds. By and large the response has taken more of a hostile form. The first impulse of the average Muslim in the Islamic world is that this kind of borrowing [culturally] would be somehow an alien factor into our social fabric and thereby destroying the integrity of our ethos … the integrity of our culture.”

Then in a later discussion, Abedin said it is necessary to police the application of Sharia law so that it can control over people’s lives:

“The state has to take over… The state is stepping n many countries … where the state is now overseeing that human relationships are carried on on the basis of Islam. The state also under Islam has a right to interfere in some of these rights given to the individual by the Sharia.”

Clearly, with Mr. Abedin’s views on religion being so outfield radical,  some have begun questioning Clinton’s choice to elevate Human Abedin into a prominent role, and possibly beyond should Clinton win the election.
