Just when I thought the Washington Times couldn’t sink any lower, well, it did.
You see, the Washington Times thinks your washroom is breeding Muslim extremists and pretty much any mainstream story, in their view, hides a more nefarious agenda. Just to show they can fit Islamofascism into any current event, today they have really outdone themselves in taking on the Anthony Weiener sexting/photo scandal:
Congressman Weiner‘s indiscretions, however, might end up inconveniencing the present Administration’s plans.
“How?” you might ask.
The clues may be found in the marriage of Huma Abedin, a devout Muslim, and Anthony Weiner, a Jew.
The marriage is interesting in that Abedin’s family obviously approved of the match. This is highly unusual for what appears to be a traditional Muslim family. Having worked for several years, and in various capacities, in the Muslim world of the Middle East, I have seen first-hand the structure and functioning of the respectful nuclear families that are the cornerstone of the Muslim faith.
When looking broadly at the Anthony Weiner–Huma Abedin union, we have to wonder if the coupling of a Jewish American man and a Muslim woman of her pedigree was fostered by love or by a socialist political agenda.
Yes, there must be something suspicious about this marriage if a Jewish guy dares to marry a Muslim woman. The shame! It couldn’t possibly be because they fell in love or something as mundane as that. No, it must be the steady creep of an Islamic, socialist political agenda.
Oh, but there’s more:
Which begs the question of whether Huma Abedin been groomed by family and political leaders to carry this agenda forward? It’s noteworthy that Time Magazine listed Huma Abedin in its “40 under 40” list of the new generation of civic leaders and “rising stars in American politics.” That certainly puts her in a position to move the Alinsky-group agenda forward.
Therefore we must consider that Mr. Weiner *may* have converted to Islam, because if he did not, we have to consider the unlikely, that being that Ms. Abedin has abandoned her Muslim faith, even while she still practices.
However, we should also bear in mind that any who are Jewish by orthodox standards will always remain Jewish, even if they have converted to another faith. This may explain rumors that Mr. Weiner went to his synagogue looking for moral support.
The question that begs to be asked, however, is, has Huma been groomed to access leading political movers and shakers to advance the cause of Islam in America, including a politically positioned marriage to Congressman Anthony Weiner?
If that is so, Anthony Weiner may be proven to be the weak link in a pro-Muslim political agenda.
I have to hand it to them, they’ve managed to throw in a reference to Saul Alinksy while also making the preposterous claim that Weiner may have converted to Islam.
Lets be honest, given Anthony Weiner’s staunchly pro-AIPAC views, if anyone was going to use a marriage to “advance the cause of Islam in America,” I would advise them against choosing Mr. Weiner to be their partner in that endeavor.
UPDATE: According to Justin Elliot over at Salon’s War Room, the article has been removed from the Washington Times website. I’ve noticed that Twitter was quite abuzz with the ridiculousness of the article. Justin also has some information on the author of the article, Eliana Benador, who apparently is a Goodwill Ambassador for some Israeli settler organization. After reading her wonderful article I “followed” her on Twitter but after criticizing the article she immediately blocked me. Heh.
