Huma Abedin worked at Muslim journal that opposed women’s rights | New York Post

This is the woman -- Huma Abedin -- who Hillary Clinton has chosen to keep by her side for the last 20 years. The woman who is now bringing Clinton new grief with emails found on the computer Abadin shared with her disgraced ex-husband Anthony Wiener. 
The main point, however, being that Abedin was deputy editor of a Muslim Journal of Minority Affairs, which her Saudi-based mother published. Huma was on the masthead of the magazine from 1996 to 2008. She has never resiled from the deeply misogynistic articles in the magazine. 
This magazine went against everything that Clinton, and all good liberals, believes about the rights of women. It is deeply conservative and anti-feminist in a way that would offend most women in the west. 
So why would is Hillary hire her? Lack of judgement again, as she's shown over and over, from Benghazi to the email imbroglio. 
Below a quote from the magazine. 
It is true that "Islam goes the farthest in restoring equality across gender", if by "equality" you mean "INequality". 
"Among all systems of belief, Islam goes the farthest in restoring equality across gender," she claimed. "Acknowledging the very central role women play in procreation, child-raising and homemaking, Islam places the economic responsibility of supporting the family primarily on the male members."
LATER: more on Huma's mother's misogynist views, including FGM, stoning to death and the rest of the dreary litany of anti-women hate at the centre of Islam. Remember: this is Hillary Clintons top aid.
