Right, but where did the money come from to fund the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs?
Wahhabism: A deadly scriptureAnd remember: Huma Abedin's father was NOT a Saudi Prince, NOR was her mother a Saudi Princess.

...Yahya Birt, an academic who is director of The City Circle, a networking body of young Muslim professionals, estimates "Saudi spending on religious causes abroad as between $2bn [£960m] and $3bn per year since 1975 (comparing favourably with what was the annual Soviet propaganda budget of $1bn), which has been spent on 1,500 mosques, 210 Islamic centres and dozens of Muslim academies and schools"...
Huma Abedin's father was born in India, her mother was born in Pakistan, they wound up in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and then suddenly they turned on a dime, when Huma was about 2 years old, and headed to Saudi Arabia.
Now the DC condo is a very different question. While she could have gotten an exotic mortgage with interest only or something like that, she still would have had to make a substantial downpayment for it. I think the most likely explanation is that Hillary gave her the cash. Nothing illegal about it as long as she paid taxes on the income.
Also a good possibility is that Hillary has arranged some nice investments for Huma with her hedge-fund pals including Ron Rosenbaum, Norman Hsu, and Mark Lasky, the guy Chelsea works for.
In the 70s the Saudis gave out a lot of dosh for religious causes, few questions asked. I knew quite a few Americans interested in Sufism who were enabled to study in Saudi. It’s since that time that things have become more politicised. So nothing really odd about Huma’s parents doing that. But the question is, what is Mum teaching now?
