Khizr Khan’s impassioned, controversial paean to his son at the Democrat National Convention is still making waves. Democrats say it’s proof that Republican nominee Donald Trump should not be president.
Conservatives, on the other hand, say that while Khan’s son was a hero, the speech was still a cynical ploy by Democrats that had little to do with Islamic terrorism.
Now, even terrorists have weighed in on it. In the latest issue of one of the Islamic State group’s magazines, the terrorist group said that Army Capt. Humayun Khan died an infidel’s death … and issued a warning to his family.
According to PJ Media, Dabiq 15 — the Islamic State’s online magazine — began with a picture of Capt. Khan’sArlington Cemetery headstone with the sickening caption, “Beware of dying as an apostate.” They went on to say that Capt. Khan’s service to America meant that he had strayed and had thus been cast into the fiery depths of the afterlife’s less desirable neighborhoods.
Just in case you thought it was just them, the writers at Dabiq 15 even quoted the Quran on the subject:
“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),” the article read.
“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).”
In other words, he who leaves Islamic authority by fighting for America has become ignorant of Muhammad’s teachings and deserving of everlasting punishment.
