Remember when Gold Star father Khizr Khan waved around his pocket sized copy of the U.S. Constitution at the DNC and sarcastically called on Donald Trump to try reading it sometime?
Well, maybe we should all ask to see Khan’s copy of that document, because it sounds a lot different than the one Americans are familiar with.
When Khan voluntarily thrust himself into the public spotlight at the convention, he had to know that a few investigators would dig into his past. The mainstream media might not be that interested, of course, but Breitbart.com certainly is.
Paul Sperry now reports:
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.”
Though described by the Clinton camp and media as a “Pakistani-American lawyer,” less known is Khan’s an acknowledged expert on Sharia law doctrine. His 13-page article, which was published in the Houston Journal of International Law, has been cited in dozens of Islamic law articles and has been used in college syllabi for Islamic law courses as recently as 2013.
Sperry adds that attempts to reach Khan for comment were unsuccessful. Maybe he’s learned too late that sometimes it’s better to say nothing.
