Heart wrenching story but ….

My heart goes our to Mr. Kahn and his family for their loss.  There should be more Muslim people in the USA that are as dedicated to this country as this man and his family are.


Huffington Post

Pakistan-born Khan, 65, appeared on stage at Wells Fargo Arena, the site of the Democratic convention, with his wife, Ghazala, at his side. He spoke of the heroism of his son, Army Capt. Humayun S.M. Khan, who was killed in action in Iraq in 2004 by an advancing vehicle loaded with hundreds of pounds of explosives. The 27-year-old soldier, who was born in the UAE, ordered his unit to halt while he walked toward the vehicle, saving the lives of his fellow soldiers from the ensuing explosion.

What Mr. Kahn and his family experienced are tragic events that have happened to 1,000’s of our military personnel and their loved ones. The BUT I am referring to is; it is an undeniable fact  that the radical members of the extremist Muslim community are the terrorists behind  the vicious attacks around the world and ARE a severe threat to the USA. Anyone that can not come to terms with that is not playing with a full deck.

Needless to say; in the beginning Trump came out of the box very aggressively and had to for a good reason. If his strategy was different, he would not have received the attention he was looking for to open the eyes and ears of the American people. No other candidate would touch the issues he did with a 100′ pole before he opened the can of political worms.

Since then, he has toned his rhetoric down substantially and has called for complete vetting of all people from all countries seeking entry to the USA, not closing the doors completely.  That I totally agree with.

The DNC has done their homework by gathered up anyone they could find that would put the heat on Trump; just as the RNC did with Bill’s bride. That is called dirty politics at it’s finest.

What I would like to see is Mr. Kahn and others like him; start and initiative by gathering all of the peace-loving Muslims around the world into uniting and go directly after the terrorists of his race/religion that are giving them such a bad name. There is no one that I know of with  any good common sense that makes the claim ALL Muslims are bad people.  The percentage is very low.

It is going to take a concerted effort for all people of all races, religions and nationalities to put these terrorists down. In unity there is strength!!
