Neocon Queen Bee: Weiner/Abedin marriage was a creeping Sharia conspiracy (and Breitbart blogger compares Weiner/Abedin to the Holocaust)

Update: The Washington Times has pulled Benador’s piece “for review,” but it can still be viewed here.

My friend Katie Halper just alerted me to a really remarkable screed about Anthony Weiner’s marriage by the neocon queen bee Eleana Benador. Writing in the Washington Times, (the last time I picked up that paper was probably when I was working on my report about the white nationalist cabal that was running its newsroom at the time), Benador portrays Weiner’s marriage to Huma Abedin as an Alinskyite union between a leftist (read: self-hating commie) Jew and a taqiyyah-practicing Muslim who are conspiring to put the United States under the control of Shariah law:

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…

Less than a year ago, in July 2010, Huma Abedin married Jewish U.S. Representative Anthony Weiner (D-NY). Attesting to the strength of her relationship with the Clintons, former President William J. Clinton officiated at the ceremony. Not unlike President Obama, the Clintons, as well as powerful politicos such as George Soros, are devotes of Saul Alinksy, who is considered “the founder of modern Community Organizing.” From my position, I clearly see that the actions of this group signal their socialist agenda, which includes domination of the U.S. by a Muslim ruled world.

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.

The author of this piece, Benador, is not some Gellerite crank. She is the former CEO and founder of Benador Associates, an outfit that handled PR for a who’s who of the neocon movement, from Richard Perle to James Woolsey to Frank Gaffney. Is this what Beltway neocons are saying about Weinergate?

Also at the Washington Times, Eric Golub, a professional nobody who says he “only dates Republican Jewish women” (unsurprisingly, he is also an Andrew Breitbart blogger), claims that Weiner hates Jewish women. Golub goes on to compare Weiner’s marriage to the Holocaust, writing that Weiner and other Jews who marry non-Jews are doing “what Hitler failed to do.” As pathological as Weiner’s behavior might have been, the right seems determined to outdo him.

    This shouldn’t surprise anybody, I’d venture a guess that 75% of all the people on the right have issues with “miscegenation” (that’s the term I believe they’re most comfortable with). Sad to see that in the year 2011 our society is still grasping tightly to this anachronistic notion that “race” exists and that choosing a spouse of another “race” makes you a traitor to your “race” (by the way, since when did being a Jew or a Muslim become a race?). I guess the only way to ameliorate societies current maladies is for everyone to follow Anthony Weiner’s lead and procreate with someone outside your “race”/religion (if you’re a believer) and with any luck your progeny will follow suit (pun intended), until everyone is the same “race” (It brings to mind a crude quote from the movie Bulworth “Everybody just gotta keep fu**in’ everybody ’til they’re all the same color” – Bulworth (Warren Beatty).

    There was a similar scandal on the right too, between the neo con Paul Wolfowitz and his mistress Shaha Ali Rizza with similar echo’s of conspiracies. Then it was a “Zionist neo con plot” as they were on the right of the political spectrum, and did both share neo con dreams of bringing democracy to Iraq, and other such nonsense. Though they were involved with each other even before he came President of the World Bank as she was already working there. The rules there forbade relationships between World bank employees. He was accused for being unduly influenced by her, when it turned out that he had been directing pay rises and other “benefits” to her. In any event, he had to resign from the World Bank.

    It beggars the question..shouldn’t Eleanor Benador be directing her sanctimonious screed at Wolfowitz and Shaha? Or maybe Wolfowitz’s wife who had tried to get Shaha labelled a security risk through George Bush :)

    The right need not point fingers at Wiener. They have their own sordid scandals as is evident above.

    Good piece as usual Max :)

    This wasn’t about race really.

    You’re right that being Muslim is not a race, neither is being Jewish, as you can convert to Judaism. For the record, neither Islam nor Judaism in their Orthodox interpretations, allows interfaith intermarriage. Nor does Chrisitianity. I think most religous groups prefer marriage to their own.

    Those whom do intermarry tend to do so if they follow the more liberal interpretations of their respective religions. Islam is more strict where women are concerned, since Muslim women can only marry Muslim men in Orthodox Islam. Even a Muslim slave woman (in the days when it was standard practice to have slaves and concubines) could only be owned by a Muslim man.

    Wolfowitz’s mistress Shaha Ali Rizza, who is a British woman of Tunisian descent who grew up in Saudi Arabia, received a lot of flak from the Muslim community for her love affair with him. Some objected because of the religious reasons, and others most probably due to the fact that he was one of the supporters of the Iraq war, thus he was seen as an enemy.

    Max,

    Benador portrays Weiner’s marriage to Huma Abedin as an Alinskyite union between a leftist (read: self-hating commie) Jew and a taqiyyah-practicing Muslim

    It’s ironic. Paul Wolfowitz was said to be an atheist Jew and Shaha Ali Rizza is thought to be Shia Muslim :)

    So as I said above, Benador has a better candidate for her vitriol in Paul Wolfowitz and the Republican Right. I doubt she even knows what Taqiyya means, which is only practiced by Shia Muslims, and it means “dissumulation”, not lying as Islamophobes like to claim.

    I wonder why Benador’s Washington Post rant is up “for review”…hmmmm :)

    All of that said, don’t you find it interesting that a conservative practicing Muslim woman raised in Saudi Arabia where women can’t even drive cars or be with a man not directly related to them married a Jewish man who spoke out frequently in defense of Israel? Isn’t it interesting at all?

    I mean Saudi Arabia where a 75 year old woman was given 40 lashes and 4 months in jail because two young men, one of whom she’d known from his infancy, brought some bread to her house?

    It is perfectly normal and wonderful for a Muslim woman raised in Saudi Arabia whose mother still lives in Saudi Arabia and has the support of several members of the royal family at the school where she teaches, it is perfectly UNREMARKABLE that this woman would marry a Jew.

    Perfectly UNREMARKABLE that the NYC Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf would encourage her to be patient with the weiner wagging Jew?

    *shakes head*

    Saudi Arabia is a monarchy. It dresses itself up as an Islamic theocracy but it is not an Islamic theocracy, and many of it’s practices and interpretations are peculiar to the region, and opposed by the mainline Sunni and Shia branches of the faith. Aside from the driving there are many other restrictive laws, which have no basis in Islam and which are often changed or revoked according to the whim of the government.

    Muslim women in traditional Islam only marry Muslim men. However, some interpretations of Islam permit Muslim women to marry ahl kitaab men but no others (kafir). Assuming they want a religious ceremony. Muslim men too, are only permitted to marry Muslim or ahl kitaab women.

    As for Huma Abedin, she is an American citizen.
