Khizr Khan is a Muslim whose son was killed in action. He spoke out at the Democratic National Convention against Donald Trump’s call to stop Muslim immigration. Trump, stupidly, took the bait and fought back and he’s been pounded in the media on a daily basis since then.
It turns out there’s more to the Khizr Khan story than meets the eye, not that you’d know it if you get your news from ABC, CBS, the New York Times or any of the other “news” outlets that get their news feeds from the Democratic National Committee.
It turns out that Khan not only is part of a law firm that donates heavily to the Clinton Foundation and the Democratic Party, he’s also an immigration lawyer who specializes in buying entrance into the U.S. for wealthy Middle Easterners.
But wait, there’s more.
Kahn wrote a glowing review of a book called “Human Rights in Islam”and he heaped praise on the address of the keynote speaker who happens to be a pro-jihad Islamic jurist who was one of the closest advisors to the father of the Taliban movement. Remember the Taliban? When we still recognized Islamic terrorism they were at the center of.
Khan’s hero brought Sharia punishment back to Pakistan, things like amputations for theft and the requirement that a rape victim produce four male witnesses or face adultery charges. Under his direction “secular” judges were required to consult mullahs on every judicial decision for Sharia compliance.
Khan came to the U.S. in 1980 supposedly to “escape Pakistan’s military rule.” He brought his “moderate” Muslim beliefs with him. Including standard Sharia punishments like stoning, beheading, flogging, and amputation which just happen to inconveniently be a flagrant violation of the 8th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
He also is fine with the idea of beating your wife, as long as they deserve it.
Khan has been very clear on the primacy of Sharia law over all other law..
“The invariable and basic rules of Islamic law are only those prescribed in the Shari’ah,” Khan writes. “All other juridical works… must always be subordinated to the Shari’ah.”
In other words, “Take your stinking Constitution and stick it.”
Remember, Khan is a “moderate” Muslim.
He stood at the podium in Philadelphia, waving a copy of the U.S. Constitution bellowing out, “… have you even read the United States Constitution? I will gladly lend you my copy…” to the cheers of Democratic delegates.
The problem with Khizr Khan is that while he’s probably read the U.S. Constitution, he thinks it’s subordinate to the Koran and to Sharia law. Don’t expect anyone on the major media to hold him accountable for that belief, and don’t expect them to hold Democrats accountable for it either.
Remember, Khizr Khan is a “moderate” Muslim. Who’s likely looking for a “radical” Muslim to behead you.
