The Muslim speakers at the DNC; Muslim copies of Cindy Sheehan?

How sad that the Khans lost their son in battle and it is good that we learn of Muslims who do serve America with honor. Have the Democrats soiled his memory with his grief-stricken parents' speaking at the DNC Convention?

Political Cartoons by Michael Ramirez
Gold Star Hypocrisy  "It was a magnificent thing for Secretary Clinton and the Democratic Party to honor the heroism of, in Captain Humayun Khan, a Muslim-American who gave his life for his comrades and country. It was a reminder at a time when America is under attack by an enemy who claims to be acting in the name of Islam that there are millions of loyal Americans who adhere to the Muslim faith. Captain Khan’s heroism is impossible to alloy.

"We hung back from airing our own doubts about the remarks of Captain Khan’s father, Khizr Khan. We were as shocked as millions of Americans were by the partisan way in which, with his ad hominem attack on Donald Trump, Mr. Khan used his son’s sacrifice on the field of battle for political purposes. " . . .
The truth is that the biggest problem Mrs. Clinton has in this race — and we understand she might well win it — is that everything about her is political. Her support for the war was political. Her opposition to the war was political. Her use of Captain Khan’s example was political, as was her use of Captain Khan’s father. The only things real in this drama turn out to be the intrepidity of Captain Khan himself, the grief of his family, and the fidelity of the president who sent him to war.
Khizr Khan was tricked into smearing Donald Trump . . . "For just about every American alive, Capt. Khan is an inspiring and unifying figure. To Hillary Clinton, he is a tool to be used to divide people." . . .

Is There a Backstory about Khizr Khan and Donald Trump? . . . "Khizr M. Khan used to work for Hogan & Hartson and Lovells, which has ties to the Clinton Foundation.  Accordingly, "Hogan Lovells LLP, another U.S. firm hired by the Saudis, is registered to work for the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia through 2016, disclosures show. Robert Kyle, a lobbyist from the firm, has bundled $50,850 for Clinton’s campaign."
"Was Mr. Khan merely being used by the Clinton campaign to advance their own agenda?  Or is there an even larger issue concerning the influence such people as Abedin and Khan exert concerning Clinton's bid for the highest office in the land?
"The questions need answers."

Clarice Feldman:  Who is Khizr Khan, the father of a fallen US solder?
. . . "So I did more digging and learned  that is also the phone number of a group called  American Muslims Vote, which says its mission is to:
To create an enlightened community by providing and developing Patriotic American Muslim leadership and
Encouraging American Muslims to participate in the democratic process at local, state and national level and vote on the election day.
DNC Angry Muslim Father and Trump Basher – Khizr Khan – Reportedly Has Ties to Muslim Brotherhood Terror Organization
. . . "Khan wrote articles regarding OPEC – the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries – (OPEC) and Sharia Law. The members of OPEC are primarily Muslim countries.  In one of Khan’s writings he shows his appreciation for an icon of the Muslim Brotherhood, Said Ramadan.  Ramandan is a known as a Muslim Brotherhood agent and was the son-in-law of Hassan al-Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood." . . .

A rant about the artificial Khizr Khan kerfuffle, which is intended to silence conservatives
Even if America doesn’t want war, Islam does, leaving America with two options:  fighting the war or preemptively surrendering. The Democrats wish to do the latter, but they don’t want the American people to know, so they engage in the endless “religion of peace” charade.
Here is what ISIS says about the Khan family and their loss:
Islamic terrorists embrace a stone-age ideology. However, these organizations have also embraced contemporary technology and techniques of persuasion. Those targeted as worthy of death by these jihadists need to recognize just how culturally aware and strategically savvy they have become.
Dabiq 15, the latest issue of ISIS's online propaganda magazine, includes the following photo and caption on page 27:

THEY'RE WATCHING: ISIS Magazine Says Captain Khan, Mentioned at DNC, Deserved Death  . . . "ISIS is communicating that Captain Khan had strayed, and was thus killed and is currently being punished in the afterlife."
"In particular, the article quotes Muhammad himself on the topic:
Indeed, the Prophet said, “Whoever dies unbound by a bay’ah (pledge of allegiance) has died a jahili [ignorant of Muhammad's teachings] death” (Muslim). And he said, “Whoever dislikes something in his leader, let him be patient. For whoever leaves the obedience of lawful authority, even a hand span (and dies), has died the death of Jahiliyyah” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim).
