At one his monthly townhall meetings in Broward County, Florida, Congressman Allen West was asked about the ‘Muslim Infiltration’ of the U.S. Government, an issue that has been in the news of late, after Congresswoman Michele Bachmann questioned Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin of her possible associations with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Bachmann did not accuse Abedin of being part of the Muslim Brotherhood, only her immediate family’s direct associations with the terrorist organization.
Frontpage’s Robert Spencer adds this-
And in Abedin’s case, there are ample reasons for raising these questions. Her father, Syed Z. Abedin, was a professor in Saudi Arabia who founded the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs, an organization supported by the Muslim World League, a Brotherhood organization. Her mother, Saleha Mahmoud Abedin, is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, the Brotherhood’s adjunct organization for women. The Brotherhood itself is in its own words, according to a captured internal document, dedicated to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house.”-Robert Spencer (Source-Bachmann/Abedin)
Congressman Allen West confirmed Bachmann’s suspicions of infiltration, actually, West has been saying it for a long time, and the Democrats have been quick to call him an extremist for doing so.
West states that he has not read Bachmann’s letter, but makes her case that there needs to be deep security checks in government, and that there is indeed a sinister effort by Islamists to integrate themselves into the U.S. Government.
