With the separated husband and wife team of former Congressman Anthony Weiner and Hillary’s right-hand woman Huma Abedin back in the news, it’s worth thinking about this odd couple.
Weiner comes from the most pro-Israel side of the Democratic Party (e.g., Hillary’s big donor Haim Saban donated to this 2013 run for mayor of NYC). Abedin is a Muslim South Asian born in the US but largely raised in Saudi Arabia.
This may seem like a strange pairing, but one of the little remarked developments of recent years is the de facto arms-length alliance that has emerged between the Gulf Sunni Arab states and the Jewish state. They both have a common enemy in Shi’ite Iran and dislike Iran’s ally, the Alaawite Assad in Syria. Lately, homophobic white Christian Russia has been actively helping prop up Assad in Syria, so that gives Hillary a politically correct way to tie together her desire for more destruction in Syria.
To Hillary, Weiner and Abedin don’t seem like weirdoes, they seem like two kids who give you hope in a glorious future in which Zionist campaign contributions can openly lay down with Gulf State contributions to the Clinton Foundation.
