'Jill Kelley' is really Jill Khawam

'Jill Kelley,' the woman who precipitated the David Petraeus scandal by reporting that she was being harassed by Petraeus paramour Paula Broadwell, is actually a 37-year old Lebanese woman named Jill Khawam (Hat Tip: Sunlight via Daniel Greenfield).
Kelley, 37, hails from a Lebanese family that emigrated to Philadelphia in the mid-1970s.
Her parents, John and Marcelle Khawam, once operated a restaurant in Voorhees, N.J., and still live in Washington Crossing, Bucks County, according to public records. An older brother resides in South Jersey, records suggest.


A 1988 Inquirer feature about the family's culinary roots described Kelley's father as an accomplished musician in their homeland and her mother as a chef who liked to entertain political and cultural figures.
At one point, the Khawams ran a Middle Eastern restaurant in Voorhees called Sahara. John Khawam also owned an auto tag store in Northeast Philadelphia, records show.
After living in Northeast Philadelphia, the family moved to Huntingdon Valley.
Jill Khawam and her twin sister, Natalie, were the youngest of four children.
Both women moved about a decade ago to Tampa, where Jill Kelley's husband works as a surgeon and the couple are active in the social circuit.
Natalie Khawam is a lawyer specializing in representing whistleblowers. According to her online resume, she attended Beaver College (now Arcadia), and earned graduate degrees from Temple University and Georgetown University Law School.
An older sister, Caroline, also lives in Florida, while Kelley's older brother, David Khawam, lives in Mount Laurel, records show.
Lebanon? Hezb...? Hmmm....

It gets better: According to John Podhoretz, she speaks Arabic.... (And she's a Maronite Christian - Daniel Greenfield had that detail as well).

Pandora's box has opened, huh?

The innuendo is clear, but, supposedly the family left Lebanon in the 1970's because as Maronite Catholics, they were concerned about persecution. They were just ahead of the curve.

She looks quite a handful. What's with the mutual neckwear?

So? She's more likely to be anti-Hezballah eg SLA

The photo you're displaying is of Natalie, Jill's twin sister. She's Lebanese and from what reports say a Maronite Christian. I'd cancel 'hezb' alert. See http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/11/13/1161265/-Jill-Kelley-Khawam-The-Lebanese-Mata-Hari
