Abedin's parents have been tied to wide range of terrorist activity and Islamist repression.
In 2012, the Center for Security Policy published a comprehensive review of Abedin's mother's work (PDF). Given Ms. Abedin's proximity to a possible future President, these connections and beliefs are well worth exploring.

As shariah justification for this position, the IICWC quotes infamous Hitler-praising Muslim Brotherhood chief jurist Yusuf al Qaradawi, long banned from entering the United States for advocating the murder of Americans in the Middle East.
In the 90s, Dr. Abedin and her late husband (and Huma Abedin’s father) published the Arabic edition of Women in Islam: A Discourse in Rights and Obligations by Saudi Islamist academic Fatima Umar Naseef...
...The book includes 22 citations to works by Sayyid Qutb (1906-1966). Qutb has inspired both Islamist terrorist organizations (like al Qaeda and Egyptian Islamic Jihad) and supplied the ideological basis for the Muslim Brotherhood’s ultimate political goals as well as their tactics.
Qutb advocated for the centrality of jihad, warfare of conquest against non-Muslims, the
importance of the shariah state...
Emails recently released by Judicial Watch reveal Huma Abedin warning staffers that Hillary Clinton is "often confused".
