Obama is connected to Islam through his father; a complete nobody in the Muslim world. Huma is a major player in modern Islam and so are all her family and friends.
The back story, as it were, begins 32 years ago in Kalamazoo, Mich., where Ms. Abedin, who declined to participate in this article, lived until the age of 2. Her family then relocated to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where she lived until returning to the States for college. She attended George Washington University.
Her father, who died when she was 17, was an Islamic and Middle Eastern scholar of Indian decent. He founded his own institute devoted to Western-Eastern and interfaith understanding and reconciliation and published a journal focusing on Muslim minorities living in the diaspora. Her mother, a renowned professor in Saudi Arabia, is Pakistani.
Thanks for the info on Huma. I never knew anything about her except that she is very close to Hillary.
I have doubts Huma is a Hillary lover.That's a cover for something else.
Maybe Iowan’s didn’t like a Muslim guarding Hillary?
Is Huma armed and dangerous?
