Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton's top campaign aide, faced questions over the weekend about her editorial role at a Saudi publication that has printed stories containing radical Islamic views.

Following a report that noted Abedin's 12-year tenure at the Journal of Minority Muslim Affairs, a spokesman for the Clinton campaign said he believed Abedin's name was simply listed on the masthead.

"She did not play a role in editing at the publication," Nick Merrill, the campaign spokesman, told the New York Post.

Abedin's mother and brother are also listed as staff members at the radical publication.

In one 2002 article cited by the Post, Abedin's mother blamed the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks on the "injustices" and "sanctions" the U.S. had imposed on the Middle East.

In another piece published in 1996, Abedin's mother expressed strong anti-feminist views.

"'Empowerment' of women does more harm than benefit the cause of women or their relations with men," wrote Saleha Mahmood Abedin, mother of the close Clinton confidante.

Abedin's ties have caused headaches for the Clinton campaign in the past.

Her overlapping positions at the State Department, the Clinton Foundation and a controversial consulting firm called Teneo Strategies have raised questions about whether Abedin was permitted to skirt ethics requirements by obtaining an employment waiver that allowed her to collect all three paychecks at the same time.

Abedin is the only other Clinton aide known to have maintained an email account on the private network that landed Clinton under FBI investigation last year.

The dust-up over Abedin's connection to the Journal of Minority Muslim Affairs, a frequent critic of Western feminism, bears significance due to Clinton's longstanding support of women's rights.
