Huma Abedin, Clinton Aide Targeted By ISIS

Continuing with their intent to kill those with moderate opinions on Islam, ISIS, known for its notorious killing of innocents, has targeted Huma Abedin an Indian-American aide to Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Abedin is listed with a number of other Western Muslim leaders in a lengthy article, which called extremists to “kill the Imams of Kufr (the infidels) in the West,” according to The Clarion Project, a nonprofit that monitors Islamic extremists.

As per media reports, the list put out in the ISIS magazine Dabiq names Huma Abedin, Clinton’s woman-Friday for more than a decade. It also targets other prominent Muslims among them, U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minnesota, and British politicians Sayeeda Warsi and Sajid Javid.

The magazine describes them as “overt crusaders” and “politically active apostates” involved “in the politics and enforcing laws of the kufr,” or disbelievers. The spokesman for Clinton’s campaign told the New York Post he had no comment about the ISIS hit list.

Abedin began as an intern in the White House 15 years ago, and worked at the State Department when Clinton was secretary of state, is married to disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner. “I have one daughter. But if I had a second daughter, it would [be] Huma,” Clinton is quoted saying at a celebration for Abedin’s wedding in 2010, the Washington Post reported. Born to an Indian father and Pakistani mother, Abedin was brought up in Saudi Arabia.

The latest issue of the magazine celebrates the Brussels attacks and identifies the key culprits behind the bombings, which killed 31 people. “Paris was a warning.  Brussels was a reminder,” the magazine said, according to the New York Post. “What is yet to come will be more devastating and more bitter by the permission of Allah, and Allah prevails.”
