Khizr Khan: there is “no such thing” as Sharia law

‘Tuesday on CNN’s “AC 360,” Khizr Khan, father of slain U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan denied the accusation he was using his son’s death to advance Sharia Law.

He told host Anderson Cooper that he did not stand for “any Sharia Law because there was no such thing.” That statement contradicts his prior position he stated. According to a Breitbart News report, Khan has published papers supporting the supremacy of Islamic law over “man-made” Western law, which includes the U.S. Constitution.’

Almost literal gibberish. Muslims tend to be good at talking without saying anything, but this is a bit much. The old man isn’t all there. I wonder who talked him into this. (As you would expect, Anderson Vanderbilt asked all the tough questions, like the true journalist he is.)

“…I have no concern, I have no link, I have never been of that thought of that. I assure you I am an educated person….  there is constitutional amendment in the constitution of United States and that is called equal protection of law under 14th Amendment. Sharia Law as we have titled, there is no such thing as Sharia Law… These are laws of various Muslim countries which are hodgepodge of British laws, French laws, Portuguese laws. In there, there is tremendous discrimination of genders which disqualifies them under the constitution of the United States, cannot be implemented, cannot be brought. How can I be a person that has read this, I preach that, that I do not stand for any Sharia Law because there is no such thing…. Do I need to say anything? Lack of understanding, lack of factual correctness, it’s just nothing but political vote pandering. They are trying to create this fear in people’s mind. They have come up with this terms and these terminology that they continue to talk about without really knowing the facts about what they are talking… (Trump) wants to do everything, I will do it by myself, I will do it in democracy, you cannot do this. That is against the basic principle of democracy. Therefore, my comments on that is that I really do not want to put myself and my son, my dignified son, through this mud slinging process (bit late now, shirley – Ed) and lack of decency, of conversation, is just amazing. I would again appeal to his surrogates that please show some decency. Refrain from what you attempted out of anger and out of this ugly partisanness.’
