While sorting through the volumes of emails provided by the Department of State as a result of its Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, the Daily Caller News Foundation came across a troubling chain of communication involving Hillary Clinton's longtime aide, Huma Abedin.
In a new report Thursday morning, the Daily Caller said the email demonstrated hostility toward the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and Jews in general. The daughter of fundamentalist Muslim parents who ran the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs referred to AIPAC attendees as "that crowd" in the email.
Huma Abedin, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's closest aide, urged former President Bill Clinton in 2009 to reject a speaking invitation before the American Israel Public Affairs Council (AIPAC), asking his assistant in an email, do "u really want to consider sending him into that crowd?"
Abedin's comment about "that crowd" has sparked anger and consternation among Jewish and non-Jewish leaders who consider it hostile to Jews and to the State of Israel. Her comments are raising uncomfortable questions about Abedin's past and her family's ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
"Appalling" is how Morton Klein, national president of the Zionist Organization of America, described the email, adding that it, "shows hostility toward Jews and Israel in light of the fact that 'that crowd' gives huge ovations to White House speakers."
Klein pointed to the Abedin family's ties to a radical Islamic group, saying, "it makes me think about the allegations about her parents and other family members who were associated with the Muslim Brotherhood."
