Posted on 06/12/2011 12:21:23 AM PDT by Nachum
Omar Abu-Namous is the imam of the Islamic Cultural Center in New York and he is encouraging Huma Abedin a practicing Muslim to stand by her husband, New York congressman Anthony Weiner. Why would this imam support Anthony Weiner, who was raised Jewish, in a marriage with a practicing Muslim woman?
Every Islamic scholar agrees that it is forbidden for a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim. Former Muslim Walid Shoebat has translated the Arabic declarations relative to the validity of the marriage between Weiner and Abedin last year. One such publication Shoebat translated was the Al-Marsid newspaper, which reported on the Weiner/Abedin marriage specifically:
Dr. Anwar Shoeb of the faculty of Islamic law in Kuwait declared that the marriage between Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin is null and void, considering it adultery as confirmed in the Sharia position, prohibiting the marriage of a Muslim woman to a non-Muslim, regardless of whether he is a Jew or a Christian. In this case, he assured the invalidity of the marriage certificate between them.
Abu-Namous is in direct opposition to his Islamic superiors? Why?
Abedin was raised in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. In 2007, the New York Observer wrote (in an article no longer available but cross-posted at FreeRepublic.com) that her mother is a professor in Saudi Arabia and that her father was an Islamic scholar before his death.
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, isnt she failing to practice Islam? Wouldnt that be the case unless Weiner converted to Islam? The New York Times reported that Weiner sometimes fasts with her (Abedin) during Ramadan. This would indicate that the congressman is more amenable to practicing Islam than Abedin is to practicing Judaism.
Before people should start believing that Abu-Namous is of the more moderate persuasion, consider what he was quoted as saying in 2001:
A unified Muslim state would be the ideal instrument to convince the world that Islam is the last version of Gods word. God meant his word to be obeyed.
Moreover, Abu-Namous spoke alongside the director of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) at the First National Summit of Imams and Rabbis. ISNA is a Muslim Brotherhood group. Abu-Namous is on record as having said there was no conclusive evidence that Muslim were responsible for the September 11th attacks. Ironically, former ground zero mosque imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is a permanent trustee with with the ICC. Abu-Namouss predecessor at the ICC blamed the Jews for 9/11.
Presiding over the wedding of Weiner and Abedin was none other than Bill Clinton. It took place at the Oheka Castle in Huntington, NY on Long Island barely more than thirty miles from the ICC where Abu-Namous served as the imam.
The Al-Marsid newspaper reported what Bill Clinton said. Shoebat translated:
Clinton spoke, presiding at the wedding about how the two met and how Abedin rejected Weiner in the beginning but the persistence of the latter did not make him give up .
Did Abedin reject Weiner because he was not Muslim? Why is a New York imam with ties to the ISNA and Feisal Abdul Rauf defending a non-Muslim male with a Muslim female?
Perhaps there is a more important 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?
Ben Barrack is a talk show host on KTEM 1400 in Texas and maintains a website at www.benbarrack.com.
Who gives a crap? He’s a turd and so is she. Flush them both and move on.
it matters, because Weiner was being groomed for NYC Mayor. (remember the ground zero masjid?) and maybe one day, US President!
at the height of the Cold War, who wouldn’t care, if such a man married a KNOWN Communist agent?
Huma’s Father was an Islamic scholar, with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, which has detailed plans (captured in raids) for infiltrating the US Government, and more.
And either Weiner converted, or Huma would be considered an apostate (married to a Jew), for which the penalty is death.
attempted “Honor Killings” are done for MUCH less, like the “Harry Potter” actress who simply dated a Hindu.
it is IMPOSSIBLE for a muslim female to be married to a non-muslim, and remain Muslim.
...if Weiner didn’t convert (which is very easy... just recite the Shahada kalima),
then Huma would be considered an apostate, married to a JEW.
...would the U.S. Secretary of State (Hillary), making official visits to Muslim countries, have an assistant who was considered to be a Muslim apostate ?
and others have noted, she had a very expensive apartment, etc., for a college student.
...and Weiner certainly didn’t seem too devoted to her, even in this, the FIRST year of their marriage. so asking why he married her, is a fair question.
Like the Clintons and 0bamas they are commies. That is all they believe in.
Weiner is doing a pretty good job of self-destructing without anyone helping him out. But anything is possible. He will probably issue one of his famous not-quite-denials “I can’t account for every religion I might have converted to.”
Eventually we are going to have to take off the blinders and openly discuss the national security implications of allowing/having members of our government compromised by the Religion of Peace - a religion openly advocating the destruction of our constitutional form of government and it’s replacement with Sharia.
Call me a bigoted racist...it is still very much the truth.
not everyone who says he or she is a observant moose may be telling the truth.
anyhow, the wedding was a secular one, no? so it doesn’t matter. going to a mosque/synagogue doesn’t make you a moose/Jew any more than sitting in a garage makes you a car.
At least Woody Allen had angst.
I’m not sure, but it’s fairly obvious he converted to ‘I slam’ to cheat on one. (I honestly don’t know if his wife is a Muslim or not though.)
anyhow, the wedding was a secular one, no? so it doesnt matter.
Is such a wedding even recognized by Islam?
Lots of questions.
Never seen a Jew convert to Islam in my 53
Oh, we’ll have that discussion. And it will be real short. It will take place when about a half million or more Americans are wiped out in one attack.
Who the hell knows what the dynamic is in that household? I do find it odd that a Jew who has marched for Israel, would marry a Muslim, but despite her family tree, where is the evidence she’s devout, or an Islamic activist? There’s nothing that holds together this theory aside from a lack of sophistication. Is it really news for a Muslim man to take the side of the man, and shame the victimized woman? Is there a Muslim cleric who would sanction a secret conversion? You don’t understand Islam if you think so.
And fasting on Ramadan amounts to eating one meal a day for dinner...big deal...it’s a nice courtesy not to eat a cheeseburger in front of your Muslim girlfriend/wife, isn’t it? It doesn’t equate “secret Muslim convert”, it just means that the reality of intermarriage requires one to partake in certain harmless aspect of a tradition. Ramadan for a Muslim is more involved than fasting.
“Never seen a Jew convert to Islam in my 53”
Never heard of Adam Gadahn?
Weiner doesn’t sound like the right type of crazy it takes.
They might make an exception for lesbians in sham marriages if they are advancing an anti-Israel agenda.
“During a White House internship in 1996, Abedin was mistakenly assigned to the first ladys office when she had requested to be in the press office. She has been a close aide to Hillary Clinton ever since.”
The article was written by another practicing female Muslim - obviously so when one reads it. Interesting how she got the job...’mistakenly assigned’ and they didn’t correct it. I know if I was mistakenly assigned it would be rectified. How do they both settle their differences in regards to the ME...
Weiner and Schumer are very pro-Israel, both are close friends, yet Schumer showed no support which is strange. Weiner has been doing this stuff for years and it suddenly surfaces...sometimes I get overly fanciful...there’s nothing the FBI doesn’t know about everyone is the WH...
“Oh, well have that discussion. And it will be real short. It will take place when about a half million or more Americans are wiped out in one attack.”
The worst part about this is that I totally believe that this is ‘exactly’ what it will take before the hand-wringers and those who choose to ignore the problem out there finally get a clue. In just 65 years we as a people have ‘willingly’ forgotten the lessons of WW2.
“Oh no! That will NEVER happen here/again/to me/us...”
Oh yes...it can.
Muslims and the ‘Arab Spring’ rioting around the world/acts of terror to numerous to list and somehow that will never happen here?
Not even 10 years since 9/11 and people have ‘willingly’ ignored that too.
God we suck.
A bigger question is: Are they really married? Remember the part of the ceremony where the priest, minister, judge, justice of the peace, captain of the ship says, “by the authority of xxxx and the state of xxxx I now pronounce you husband and wife”?
By what authority did Bill Clinton have to marry them? to marry ANYBODY? He’s an ex-President (of dubious moral authority). He’s NOT a minister, or a judge. In fact, he had his law license suspended for lying under oath.
Perhaps they are notreallly married at all. Perhaps it was all a sham to give cover to her close relationship with Hillary.
All they need to do is get the marriage license signed and it’s legal. The rest is just for show.
She shouldn't/won't care about his texting since he's short 3 wives of the maximum 4 allowed under muslim law.
You mean that guy I dated in college who used to try to persuade me to do a “home run” by claiming that we would be married “in the eyes of God” by just pledging our love for each other in the moonlight was actually telling the truth?
Say it isn’t so! I didn’t believe him then, and now you are telling me that I hurt his poor little feelings unnecessarily! s/off
That was more than 50 years ago, and you are making me feel sorry for a guy who is probably dead!
I do know that, in Islamic tradition, a father can give permission for a daughter to marry outside her faith. Better for her to be married at all, then to be dependent upon the family forever is along the lines of that thinking.
bigot - anyone who doesn't change their opinion on command to whatever opinion they're ordered to have
racist - anyone who isn't part of the democrat fascist machine and who states the truth about a member of one of the groups the democrat machine has declared to be a protected group
OK, you bigoted racist, I agree with you 100%. We're being even more stupid than the French and British were when dealing with Hitler. As idiotic as they were, they didn't hand their own countries over to Hitler in exchange for a little paper that promised, “peace in our time”, they handed over someone elses country.
The leaders of the democrat fascist machine in this country, though, are so afraid of not achieving their final victory before they drop dead that they'll hand their own country over to pagan, moon worshiping, brainwashed, scum, just to enjoy being the powerful ruling class during their “golden years”. What comes after that they don't care.
God and the US legal system have two very different opinions on what constitutes marriage ;)
I've never heard anyone to be born a Christian, or a Catholic or even a Jew.
Your name may be Weiner or Goldstien or whatever, but that is genetics.
If a baby is born to two Catholics and is never baptized nor practiced (through the years) is he a Catholic?
If a baby is born to two Born Again Christians, but never receives Christ, is he born again?
So my take on this is, these are just two opportunistic, large egoed political types and their "religion" is in no way part of their thought processes.
If Huma was to ne subject to any Muslim retaliation, it would have happened a long time ago for a different reason, as a father/brother/uncle witnessed her rise in the way of life she chose many more years ago and before her marriage.
And the saddest part (for them) is that the moment the scum take that power, the lefties that handed it to them on a silver platter will suddenly be too dead to enjoy the fruits of their labors.
“(Letter that comes after E)’ing idiots” does not begin to describe the left and the useful idiots therein.
Clarification - I meant “Signed/notarized by a judge”. I wasn’t referring to the people signing it and then magically they were married. Still, requires on ceremony, so your old beau was half right ;)
Edit #2...”no” ceremony...I need sleep ;)
You dated Meatloaf?
“In just 65 years we as a people have willingly forgotten the lessons of WW2.”
The reason we as a people have forgotten the lessons of the past is our children are not taught anything about the greatness of our nation, much less what has been required to preserve it. To them our nation’s history is about the struggle of minorities oppressed by the white race and wicked capitalists. They are taught love of self and love of diversity instead of love of nation.
Absolutely, and that is very much by design.
Think about the old Kruschev (Or perhaps Lennin/Marx, can’t keep my Commies straight ;) line that went something like “Perhaps not you, but your children.” Not an exact quote but the meaning is clear enough.
There is a reason that Academia is the realm of the Left/Communist types and this is it. It has worked beautifully. Or to put it in a more Biblical sense, Teaching the kids that evil is good and good, evil...left is right, black is white, up is down, war is peace, freedom is slavery...
All there in the history books, but no one cares to read them... and the left is busily rewriting them all anyway to fit their version of history.
Orwell, Bradbury (F-451) Huxley (Brave New World) ... Even the ‘fiction’ writers got it right. But I don’t imagine they were intending to write ‘how-to’ manuals for the Left/Democrats.
...”would the U.S. Secretary of State (Hillary), making official visits to Muslim countries, have an assistant who was considered to be a Muslim apostate ?”...
No..Unless, Hillary and Bill are so “in” that it doesn’t matter since the end justifies the means. Hypocrisy is the word in politics all over the world. We are truly like lambs going to the slaughter..It is so evident, unless God decides to save us...
I’m more worried about the muslim already in the WH.
That would certainly given him license to be unfaithful to huma in any form. I am particularly amused at whatever edict covers muzzzie men to be married for a day so that they can romp in the hay with those of their choosing.
Excellent question. It;’s well known that both sides,Dems and pubbbies, of the political equation have sold out to the Saudis for millions. Is this the case with the Weiner? Hard to tell..We need hard facts.
Far from it. The islamists terrorists have been uniting with the far left all over the world. It’s our worst nightmare.
I am pretty sure Bill Clinton, who married the couple, had standards of his own in this....and it looks like theWeiner is a chip off the old block, Bill himself. Doesn’t seem to be any religion that would allow Bill to marry them was involved, so I am assuming neither of them practices any religion in reality.
And yet women here in the ‘west’ support/defend it.
Any woman that does sure isn’t one I’d want to be married to, nor raising, or even near my children. Likewise would any woman with an ounce of sense want to marry a Muslim man.
But they are all about love and peace and unicorns and rainbows, so it’s ‘us’ with a racism problem. It’s their ‘Culture!’
Yea and stool sitting in a petri dish has ‘culture’ too.
NOT want to marry a Muslim man....ARGH! OK, really time for bed after that one.
In my view the whole business of religion is irrelevant to the issue.
All involved are liberals. Liberals shun, loathe, reject religion. That is what liberalism is about.
Neither Weiner nor Huma are religious and reject both Judaism and Islam. They agreed to a civil sham ceremony to satisfy state law and establish rules for financial dealings between the two.
Both are American rejects and that fact should be placed at the top of the list from which judgements must be made.
He converted for the 72 virgins he heard about.
The author had a page to fill up with a short paragraph of information and speculation.
Exactly, its money and power. Liberalism uber alles.
This was a wedding of convenience, in the same way royal families would arrange marriages to strengthen their kingdoms.
The Clintons strengthened their hold on the DNC through this wedding. The is a union of socialists and muslims, just like what we see in the middle east.
Also, just like royal families, these elites are allowed to cheat on their spouses unconditionally.
Getting caught requires the other spouse to make a public play for sympathy, yet still support their elected partner to ensure the kingdom’s hold on power.
Anyone who falls for this is a blind fool.
I believe in a less-expansive definition of “race”, limited to physical characteristics. Islam is an ideology, a political ideology that uses religion as a cloak and as a means of controlling the masses. I support a Constitutional Amendment removing it from the religious protections of the First Amendment and other legislation, since it is in reality a political system that seeks to supplant the Constitution and our system of government. The Constitution is not a suicide pact, and just because they hide behind the fascade of “religion” doesn’t mean we have to be foolish about it.
Beyond that, see tagline.
Do muslims allow pedophile, perverts to become muslims?
