Trump's Battle With Khizr Khan Spurs Examination Of Khan's SHOCKING Past
Donald Trump has been getting hit with criticism from all sides over the past few days in the midst of a feud he's having with the father of a fallen Muslim U.S. serviceman. It began when attorney Khizr Khan spoke at the Democratic National Convention and attacked Trump for his stance on Muslim immigration. Trump responded with criticism of Khizr's comments, and the two began a back-and-forth battle of words across the media spectrum.
Trump's comments have drawn an enormous amount of backlash from not only the Left but members of Trump's own party.
Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said, "I believe these Gold Star families are off limits, and they're to be loved and cherished and honored."
As Khizr continues to attack Trump on television, Trump's latest words back to him on Twitter have been: "Mr. Khan, who does not know me, viciously attacked me from the stage of the DNC and is now all over T.V. doing the same — Nice! This story is not about Mr. Khan, who is all over the place doing interviews, but rather RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM and the U.S. Get smart!"
Now in defense of Trump, Alex Pfeiffer of the Daily Caller has dug deep into Khizr's Sharia law past.
Pfeiffer pointed out writings of Khan in the Houston Journal of International Law in 1983 where he praised Sharia law, the Quran, and the Sunnah. In the journal, he upheld Sharia law as the gold standard for all other laws.
Of the Quran he said, "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.”
According to Breitbart, Khizr's law website, where he addressed his services as an immigration lawyer, has gone abruptly gone offline. Breibart points out that the immigration program Khizr uses is steeped in corruption.
Earlier this year, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) condemned the program for its "fraud and abuse" and the possibility that it's being used for Iranian espionage in the U.S. and Islamic terrorism.
Khizr's website also mentions his years working for Hogan & Hartson, which is connected to Saudi Arabia and over $10 million in donations to the highly controversial Clinton Foundation.
