Did Anthony Weiner Convert to Islam?
WebToday ^ | June 8, 2011 | WebToday

Posted on 06/08/2011 3:41:24 PM PDT by geraldmcg

WebToday (June 8, 2011)-- The New York Times reports that Rep. Anthony Weiner's wife – Huma Abedin – is a “practicing Muslim” who was raised in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. In 2007, the New York Observer wrote – article no longer available but cross-posted at Free Republic – that her mother is a professor in Saudi Arabia and that her father was an Islamic scholar before his death.

Islamic law forbids any Muslim woman from marrying a non-Muslim man. Weiner was raised Jewish but admitted to growing up in a non-religious household. If Abedin remains a practicing Muslim and her religion forbids her from marrying a non-Muslim, isn't she failing to practice Islam? Wouldn't that be the case unless Weiner converted to Islam?

Known as the Shahada, the Islamic testimony of faith is very short. Weiner would have been required to say it according to Islamic law. Otherwise, Abedin would have violated a primary tenet of her religion. Here is what Weiner would have had to say in order to be able to marry Abedin according to Sharia law:

“There is no God except Allah and Muhammad is his messenger.”

Curiously, the imam of the Islamic Cultural Center of New York (ICC) – of which Ground Zero mosque Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is a trustee – is a man named Sheik Omar Abu-Namous. He is calling for Abedin to stand by Weiner. Why would an imam encourage a Muslim woman to remain married to an unfaithful Jewish man?

Compounding this matter further is the fact that Abu-Namous was quoted in 2001 as saying:

“A unified Muslim state would be the ideal instrument to convince the world that Islam is the last version of God's word. God meant his word to be obeyed.”

In 2007, Abu-Namous spoke alongside the director of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) at the First National Summit of Imams and Rabbis. Abu-Namous is on record as having said there was no conclusive evidence that Muslims were responsible for the September 11th attacks. Ironically, Abu-Namous's predecessor at the ICC blamed the Jews for 9/11. ISNA is a Muslim Brotherhood group.

There is a question that needs to be answered. Did a secular Jewish man convert to Islam or did his (still) practicing Muslim wife abandon her religion by marrying him?

Stay tuned for more...

To align favorably with this tenet, he would have had to convert before they met. There is no forgiveness in even courting with a jew.

I could be wrong. I don’t care enough about islam to contemplate it’s nuances.

Huma’s been living in Georgetown since she was a freshman at GW. Chances are there is an imam down there who has the skinny on whether the congressman converted.

I’ve also read that muslim women may marry outside Islam, though I doubt that this is truly the case.

If not he should he not have a jihad on his head since the day they got married, was it Jewish marriage ceremony or was it a atheist marriage or was a Muslim marriage ceremony.

Need wedding pics.

Bill Clinton presided at the ceremony.

He’s probably an atheist who claims to be a Jew so “converting” to Islam was no big deal.

/// your doubt, is absolutely correct!

i have been saying this, since long BEFORE “Weinergate”.

...and i discussed this very issue, years ago, with a MODERATE Imam near DC, who was on the CAIR board of directors. He confirmed, that in Islam, is is IMPOSSIBLE for a muslima to marry a kuffir, and remain a muslima.

She would automatically become an “ex” Muslim. If honor killings occur simply for a muslima DATING a christian, what would happen to the daughter of a Muslim scholar, who was raised in Saudi Arabia, for MARRIAGE to a JEW ?!?

...but does she hide, or live under protection, like the “Harry Potter” actress who was almost killed for just dating a Hindu? Or like Robert Spencer, Nonnie Dawish, Bridget Gabriel, and that girl in Ohio who ran away from her Muslim parents after death threats ? does Huma get death threats? no? why not?

Occam’s razor: they know that HE must have secretly converted.

Which exactly fits the detailed Muslim Brotherhood plans to infiltrate government, in those documents capture in the raid. (and Huma’s father, was a Islamic scholar, with ties to the MB).

Making this much more important than a twitter photo of his underwear...

(having the next Mayor of NY be a Muslim... especially regarding the ground zero Mosque, etc., could have been useful maybe?)

“Bill Clinton presided at the ceremony.”

I’ve been wanting to ask this question, how is Bill Clinton authorized to do a wedding ceremony?

Is it because he was once president, or because he was a governor?

I know a mayor can marry people, but does that stay with you even when you are out of office? I know judges can marry people, but Clinton (thank goodness!) was never a judge.

If anyone can explain this to me, I’d appreciate it.

This is a serious matter among the muzzies. I personally know a guy who converted to islam to marry his Pakistani sweetheart (he was a Catholic). He told me of that matter of factly, like there was nothing to it...He claimed he was perfectly comfortable having both religions, his wife’s family wouldn’t have it any other way, she was not really religious ....blah blah blah, the usual BS. I avoided his company ever since. I wonder, when Rep. Dicky shows up in public again, would any journalist dare to ask him a simple question, “have you ever converted to islam?” Would be interesting to see if dickhead can answer with certitude. Oh well this was just a dream, won’t hold my breath...

Anthony Weiner worships nobody but himself.

More specifically, he apparently worships a part of his body and wanted a bunch of ladies to do so as well.

Summary:
To marry Huma (a ‘devout’ Muslim), Tony Weiner would have had to convert to Islam. OK, I can buy he's a closet Muslim playing at being a Jew for appearances.

But, what does the Holy Koran say about a ‘devout’ Muslim woman living and fooling around for years with an aging Infidel woman (Hillary Clinton)? The Koran forbids homosexuality between Muslims, but what about Muslims and Infidels?

...how is Bill Clinton authorized to do a wedding ceremony?

I'm not sure if I'm correct on this, but my guess would be that in New York, where the Weiner-Abedin ceremony took place, one isn't authorized to perform a marriage until and unless he is licensed by the state, which undoubtedly requires a fee. But being Bill Clinton, the 'Rat hacks who run the state might very well have granted him a waiver to do the Weiner-Abedin ceremony.

What a juicy irony that a guy like Clinton would publicly instruct a newlywed couple on the obligations of marriage!

Unless I heard to story wrong, after the wedding Clinton told old Huma never to trust a politician. I may be wrong about this, so maybe somebody can confirm.

I tried to do a little googling on that question, but all I could find were stories where it basically said: nobody really knows how it is that Clinton can perform the ceremony, but we are assured he is and all will be legal.

Which I still thought was very strange.

Maybe you are right and there is some quickie justice of the peace badge one can get.

Oh those Demonrats, always more questions than answers!
