Khizr M. Khan, the father of the US Army captain killed in Iraq years ago, and the man who gave an anti-Trump speech at the Democratic National Convention last week, continues to appear on TV to double and triple down on his hate for Donald Trump.
At this point, aside from stating his son is a war hero, there is very little that comes out of Khan’s lips that can be taken at face value. The more Khan sticks around the more he discredits himself. For example, last week during a TV interview Khan said he wants to fade away and drop out of the spotlight. Meanwhile, he continues to appear on CNN so often you’d think he was a paid contributor.
On Tuesday, Khan deleted his website from the Internet. But the screenshots of his pages remain, and it’s been revealed he is an immigration attorney with ties to Hillary-friendly firms and organizations. Furthermore, despite Khan’s constant waving of the Constitution, Breitbart.com has revealed Khan’s true feelings about Sharia law:
Khizr M. Khan has published papers supporting the supremacy of Islamic law over “man-made” Western law — including the very Constitution he championed in his Democratic National Convention speech attacking GOP presidential nod Donald Trump.
In 1983, for example, Khan wrote a glowing review of a book compiled from a seminar held in Kuwait called “Human Rights In Islam” in which he singles out for praise the keynote address of fellow Pakistani Allah K. Brohi, a pro-jihad Islamic jurist who was one of the closest advisers to late Pakistani dictator Gen. Zia ul-Haq, the father of the Taliban movement.
Khan provides his own advocacy for Sharia law in a separate academic paper titled “Juristic Classification of Islamic Law,” which he also wrote in 1983, while studying in Saudi Arabia.
“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.”
He explains that Sharia is derived from the Quran and Sunnah, and that the Quran “is the absolute authority from which springs the very conception of legality and every legal obligation.”
Khan then notes that Quranic law includes “constitutional law.”
