Talk about a conflict of interest, or was it? Hillary Clinton’s close confidant and aide Huma Abedin was working for the offices of Saudi Arabia’s Muslim World League as an assistant editor on September 11, 2001.
Breitbart reported that’s a Wahhabist Islamic group that Breitbart News recently reported was going to be put on a list of terror funders by U.S. government but was removed, reportedly under pressure from Saudi Arabia.
This latest revelation ties the Muslim World League directly to the The Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs and the Journal for Muslim Minority Affairs, an organization that Vanity Fair writer William D. Cohan called “the Abedin family business.
Huma Abedin is scheduled to give a deposition today on her role in the Hillary Clinton email server scandal, which involved classified documents.
Muslim World League London Office & Abedin Family Business Have Same Address
An archived webpage from the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs from a little over a year after 9/11 — December 2, 2002, the earliest date available — shows that then-New York Senator Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin was an assistant editor of the Journal.
Aside from Huma herself, also listed on that same date as editors are her sister Heba, her brother Hassan and her mother, Saleha S. Mahmood.
Listed on the Board of Advisers on that date is former Muslim World League Secretary General Abdullah Omar Naseef, who is listed as being on the “Majlis as-Shura.”
Majlis as-Shura or Shura Council, also known as the Consultative Assembly of Saudi Arabia, is a 150 member board of advisers—all appointed by the Saudi Arabian King—that proposes laws to the King and cabinet in the Kingdom’s absolute monarchy.
From that same December 2002 date, another webpage on the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs site about how to reach the Journal says “Editorial Correspondence including submission of articles and books for review should be addressed to: Editor, Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs 46 Goodge Street, London WIP 1FJ, U.K.”
The current official Journal website also lists the same 46 Goodge Street address, which is the same exact address listed on the Muslim World League’s London office address.
The official website for the Muslim World League’s London office lists its address as 46 Goodge Street.
The current day London Online website also lists the Muslim World League office in London and the Journal’s parent organization Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs as having the exact same 46 Goodge Street address.
A Yelp! listing for the Muslim World League shows the same 46 Goodge Address and a photo of the entrance.
The Muslim World League Was Reportedly Pulled From Terror Funder List
Although she was working for Senator Hillary Clinton in 2001, at that time Huma Abedin was an unknown but influential aide, so her connection the the Muslim World League went unexamined.
Reports from mainstream media sources at the time of the 9/11 terror show that U.S. intelligence officials thought for years that the Muslim World League was connected to terror, but failed to inform the public of the connections due to pressure from Saudi Arabia.
Newsweek reported less than a month after the 9/11 attack:
Two interrelated global charities directly financed by the Saudi government–the International Islamic Relief Organization and the Muslim World League –have been used by bin Laden to finance his operations. The organizations were left off the list of groups sanctioned by the United States last week, U.S. officials hinted to NEWSWEEK, in order to avoid embarrassing the Saudi government.
Harper’s magazine confirmed in a 2004 story:
In other cases, the Bush Administration made a conscious decision not to pursue major Saudi conduits for terrorist funding. The clearest example involves two ostensible charities that are long known to have funneled money to Al Qaeda–the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO) and the Muslim World League (MWL). Both are financed directly by the Saudi government. MWL is an evangelical organization that was created to help spread Wahhabism, the Saudi brand of Islamic fundamentalism; IIRO is a humanitarian relief organization that operates primarily in Muslim countries.
There is no record of either Hillary Clinton or Huma Abedin ever coming forward with information about the Muslim World League, even though the group was suspected of terrorist funding at the time.
Hillary Clinton Needs To Answer Questions About Huma Abedin
This clear connection between the Muslim World League and the Institute of Muslim Minority raises even more questions about the mysterious Huma Abedin.
A recent Breitbart News article from Republican political operative Roger Stone called for the media to force Hillary Clinton to break her silence about how Huma Abedin got into her current position as a Hillary Clinton confidant and how she was able to get a security clearance. Stone asked three questions: number one was What is Huma’s relationship with a Saudi Arabian official named Abdullah Omar Naseef?
It’s a question that neither Hillary Clinton nor Huma Abedin ever appears to have been asked by the media.
