When Hillary Clinton had Khzir and Ghazala Khan to step up on stage at the Democratic national convention, they were supposed to appear as simply grieving “Gold Star parents” of a Muslim-American soldier killed in Iraq in 2004… and it worked, for a while.
In his speech, Khan blasted Donald Trump for wanting to temporary halt immigration from Muslim nations tied to terror, and an all-out media war was launched in multiple attacks on Trump, as if he was somehow responsible for the soldier’s death himself. Trump’s comments on the matter in interviews have resulted in severe backlash from Democrats and GOP insiders as well, and, as Breitbart writes, “the media is driving the train as fast as they can” to maximize the attack on Trump.
However, a few sources have taken the time to peal back the curtain on the Khans and their connections, and what has been revealed tells an entirely different story.
Shocking revelations include that Khan has deep financial and legal connections to the Muslim immigration industry, and well as connections to the Saudi Arabian government, and to the Clintons themselves.
Khan’s own website (which he hurriedly DELETED) confirmed that he specialized in a controversial visa program that allows wealthy foreigners to invest in American businesses and property as a means of buying citizenship for themselves and their families – a program mostly used by Islamic investors.
Khan’s website included the following on his bio:
From 2007 to 2010 he was Director of Law Technology & Electronic Discovery at a major global law firm based in New York. From 1998 to 2007, he managed firm wide, including European and Asian offices of the law firm, Litigation Technology Services group at the international law firm of Hogan & Hartson, Washington, DC.
At both law firms, he was responsible for numerous large electronic discovery projects in complex litigation, mergers and acquisitions, US Dept. of Justice and Federal and State regulatory agencies’ investigations, on behalf of the global business enterprise clients.
The international law firm where Khan stated he worked for 9 years, Hogan & Hartson, merged with London-based “Lovells” in 2010, and is now known as “Hogan Lovells, LLC.”
Attorney General Loretta Lynch was also employed by Hogan & Hartson, from 2001 to 2010 – during the same time period as Khan.
We recently reported the connection between Hogan Lovells LLC, Saudi Arabia and Hillary Clinton. A lobbyist who works for Hogan Lovells has bundled over $50,000 in donations for the Clinton campaign. Saudi Arabia is also contracted with the firm, and has donated millions to the Clinton Foundation.
Breitbart reports that Hogan Lovells is also the firm that has handled Hillary Clinton’s taxes since 2004, and is deeply connected to a firm in Denver, Colorado associated with Clinton’s private server involved in the email scandal during her term as Secretary of State.
The Daily Caller reported that Khan has also written extensively about Islamic law, specifically about “the purity of the Quran and the Sunnah over all other texts and interpretations.”
In short, as an attorney licensed to practice law in the United States, Khan believes that Islamic law supercedes all other laws:
Khan wrote “Juristic Classification Of Islamic Law” in the Houston Journal of International Law in 1983. In it he breaks down different levels of Islamic law. Khan writes that the Quran and the Sunnah which were both directly created by the Muslim prophet Muhammad were the only sources in Muhammad’s lifetime that “were recognized as binding.”
“The Shari’ah-was completed during the lifetime of Prophet Muhammed, in the Quran and Sunnah. This brings up an important fact which is generally overlooked, that the invariable and basic rules of Islamic Law are only those prescribed in the Shari’ah (Quran and Sunnah), which are few and limited,” Khan continues to write. “All other juridical works which have been written during more than thirteen centuries are very rich and indispensable, but they must always be subordinated to the Shari’ah and open to reconsideration by all Muslims.”
In the journal article, Khan goes on to explain the importance of Islamic laws and interpretations to Muslim followers. He writes that: “The present form of the Quran is one and the same in every part of the Muslim world, and it has been so all through the centuries. This, Muslims believe, is due to the fact that the compilation and arrangement of chapters was completed-under divine instructions-by the Prophet himself.”
It is due to this that Khan writes, “to Muslims, the Quran being the very word of God, it is the absolute authority from which springs the very conception of legality and every legal obligation.”
