On Monday, news broke that Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s closest aide, announced that she was separating from Anthony Weiner after he was caught sexting another woman.

Naturally, the jokes began writing themselves. But there is a question that one has to ask — was Weiner’s latest escapade just the excuse needed to end a planned marriage of convenience?
Back in 2013, Dave Jolly noted that Abedin, a devout Muslim, was engaged to Weiner , a Jew, in 2009.
Huma Abedin is a devout Muslim from a powerful Muslim family. Her mother is Saleha Mahmoud Abedin, a professor and dean at Dar El-Hekma College in Saudi Arabia. She is also a prominent official in the Muslim Sisterhood, the female counterpart to the Muslim Brotherhood. Although Huma married a Jew, a mortal enemy of all Muslims, she is still accepted by her Muslim family and friends. Normally her marriage would have constituted her being disowned by the family and subjected to an honor killing.
“So one has to beg the question why she had been allowed to marry a Jew and not face disgrace from her family and fellow Muslims?” he asked.
Jolly also provided what he thought was the answer:
I believe the answer can be found in a Muslim word ‘Muruna’. There are times when Muslim leadership believe it is more important to plant a spy to gain valuable information than it is for that spy to follow all Muslim law. It is not uncommon for Muslim leadership to push a woman into a relationship with a non-Muslim in order to gain the confidence and trust of an infidel. Once that trust has been gained, the Muslim woman can begin to exert some influence into the dealings of her husband and in the process learn important secrets that she can pass on to her Muslim handlers back home.
I believe Huma Abedin is a Muruna and that her marriage to the Rep. Anthony Weiner was planned and sanctioned by the Muslim Brotherhood. At the time, Weiner had high expectations of furthering his political career, possibly a run for senate seat once held by Hillary Clinton or even higher. Having a husband in the US Congress would be a great asset to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Personally, I don’t know of any woman who would tolerate what Weiner did and frankly, I’m surprised she stuck with him this long. But Jolly is onto something here and it bears consideration.
“If Hillary manages to win the presidential election in 2016, you can bet your bottom dollar that Abedin will be by her side in some key role, enabling her to pass many state secrets back to her Muslim Brotherhood family,” Jolly wrote in 2013. “In my opinion, Huma Abedin is a dangerous enemy of the United States and should be treated as such,” he added.
