Khizr Khan Emotions And Policy — Khizr Khan, a Harvard lawyer and Muslim, made a blistering attack on Donald Trump, July 28, during the Democrat National Convention concerning Trump’s concern about sleeper terrorists entering this country under the guise of Muslim refugees.
“Donald Trump consistently smears the character of Muslims,” he said as wife, Ghazala, stood silently by his side. “He disrespects other minorities, women, judges, even his own party leadership. He vows to build walls and ban us from this country.”
The last sentence implies a permanent ban and isn’t true, but never mind that.
The Khans’ son Humayun lost his life while serving in Iraq in 2004 receiving a Bronze star and Purple Heart for his heroism. The media is trying to tie the label of cowardly chickenhawk on The Donald, which is ironic since by 2004 when young Humayun died he was speaking out against the war, and rather prophetically.
Khan made the point that there are Muslims who can be loyal, good and patriotic Americans.
But Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik; Nidal Hasan; Omar Mir Seddique Mateen; Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev; and 19 9/11 hijackers make the far stronger point that there is something seriously wrong with the Islamic philosophy towards life and we better recognize it.
This is not religious argument. Nobody is talking about vetting people concerning theological beliefs about the nature, or even existence, of God. This is a value argument. Do we have unalienable rights or can someone kill another simply because he disagrees with his belief about the nature of God?
We had better start vetting people as to whether they hold the latter view and keep them from coming here. Further, we had better start teaching those already here who hold this view that they are seriously wrong and that believing murder is OK for religious reasons will not be tolerated.
And with regard to diversity and such, where are the Catholic cathedrals and Baptist churches and Jewish synagogues in Mecca? Maybe we should start pushing that these things be allowed there, hmmm?
If one wants to save this country Trump is the only choice this November no matter how obnoxious your “betters” say he is.
