Watch: Muslim Dad Khizr Khan Tells CNN Terror ‘Has Nothing to Do with Islam’

Khizr Khan, the bereaved father of fallen soldier Capt. Humayun Khan who attacked Donald Trump last week in a speech at the Democratic National Convention, told CNN’s Jim Acosta Sunday morning that terror has “nothing to do with Islam.”

Here is Khan’s full quote courtesy of Breitbart:

In addition to this, there was in the speech that my good wife asked me to refrain from saying, I wanted to say we reject all violence. We are faithful, patriotic, undivided loyalty to this country. We reject all terrorism. She asked me not to say that because that was not the occasion for such a statement. We say to his ignorance, I address his ignorance, that the dirt effect, the most effect of the menace of terrorism have been Muslims in the world, Muslims hate this menace of terrorism as much as any other place. It is our duty to keep this country, our country, beautiful country, safe. We have always thought of [it] that way, we will continue to do our part to keep it safe and beautiful. What he cites in the name of Islam, and all that — that is not Islam at all! I wish he would have, somebody would have put something in his head that these are terrorists, these are criminals, these folks have nothing to do with Islam.

Last Thursday, Khan caused a sensation at the convention when he spoke alongside his wife, challenging Trump’s proposed ban on Muslim immigration, saying: “Have you even read the U.S. Constitution? … You have sacrificed nothing and no one.”

Khan made no mention of radical Islam, or terror. His claim that the Constitution bars Trump’s ban on Muslim immigration has also been disputed.

The media — which ignored, or disputed, a similar speech at the Republican National Convention, by Patricia Smith, who lost her son at Benghazi, followed up on Khan’s speech by challenging Trump to respond. Trump answered by questioning why Khan’s wife had not said anything — an apparent reference to the subordinate status of women in Islam — and reiterated: “We’ve had a lot of problems with radical Islamic terrorism, that’s what I’d say.” Read more at BREITBART.

  1. He’s right. Air conditioners is what poses the biggest threat to civilization. Just ask fellow Democrat John Kerry. Not only Muslim air conditioners but even white skinned Americans, air conditioners. We really have to come together and fight this threat of air conditioners for the sake of the future of this planet. Until Mars is ready for us, we have to keep this earth going. Probably only another few years.

  2. He may be 100% sincere, but Iran, ISIS, Hezbollah, Hamas, Saudi Arabia, and many, many other countries, organizations and lone wolves who are either terrorists themselves or sponsor terror believe very much that the slaughter of those who oppose their ideas is exactly what a good Moslem will do and should do.
    That’s not even counting somewhat secular Arab / Islamic terror organizations and bad actors such as Fatah, Syria, Turkey and others.

    • So we should pay Mr. Khan to promote his understanding. Many other Muslims agree with him including two huge Muslim organizations in Indonesia with a combined membership of 60 to 70 million people. But it is the jihadis who have the funding to spread their message of violence and hate; the people like Mr. Khan have to have day jobs.

  3. I feel bad for the Khan family. Mr. And Mrs. Khan seem like very nice patriotic people. Unfortunately they are being had by the sleazy politicians of BOTH parties. Mr. Khan is NOT running for President or any elected office. They are not the only ones who lost loved ones defending our freedoms. There are thousands just like them, unfortunately. I think they were dragged into territory that they were not expecting. The best thing for this family would be to stop going on TV shows and stop doing these humiliating interviews. The media is to blame for keeping this family in their suffering state.

  4. …as Bob Grant said many years ago: “Not all muslims are terrorists but all terrorists are muslims”. That being said and being the truth, we have no choice but to profile in order to protect ourselves. We are at war and the terrorists are making their fellow peace loving muslims into collateral damage.

    • Part and parcle of their “religion” is to forcibly convert all non-moslems to their brand of Islam, Sunni or Shiite. Non-Moslems have very little way of understanding what is truly their doctrine, because the language and alpha-bet are unknown to them. Also, the koran underwent many “revisions” so everyone can pick and choose what they believe, and something else to show outsiders, who don’t understand anyways.

    • Nice try, but there are too few who are peace loving to make a difference, despite the supposed profundity of your last line. Don’t forget, that some who c l a i m to be peace loving, are just good liars. It’s a national trait, part of their culture.
