Ray Starmann’s Open Letter to Khizr Khan-Commentary!
Summary of eRumor:
Ray Starmann, a former U.S. Army intelligence officer, wrote an open letter to Khizr Khan, a Gold Medal father whose son, U.S. Army Captain Humayun Khan, was killed in Iraq.
Ray Starmann’s open letter to Khizr Khan was published at Starman’s website, Defense Watch, on July 30th.
Starmann’s open letter was in response to a speech that Khan delivered at the Democratic National Convention. Khan said that his family had demonstrated “undivided loyalty” to America while Donald Trump had “sacrificed nothing and no one” to the country.
Starmann wrote, “Captain Khan is a hero. I am sure the soliders he served with regard him as one. I know you and your wife do. Rest assured that millions of veterans regard your son as a hero as well.”
Starmann continued, the Khans arrived in America from Pakistan and assimilated into the country, but many Muslims other Muslims had no desire to assimilate:
But, there are many Muslims in America who not only have no desire to assimilate, but wish to live under Sharia Law.
That is unacceptable to Americans. There is only one law of the land. That is the USConstitution.
As you well know, Mr. Khan, we live in violent times, dangerous times. Muslim madmen from ISIS and other radical Jihadi groups are on a murder and terror spree across the globe.
Your religion of peace, Islam, is anything but that in 2016. That is a fact that is confirmed every time a Muslim shoots, bombs, beheads and tortures innocent men, women and children. This does not mean that every Muslim is a terrorist, but most terrorists, sir, are indeed Muslims.
Despite the “feckless, naïve, leftist ideologue Barack Obama and his dimwitted colleagues John Kerry, Francois Hollande and Angela Merkel state, the United States and the West are at war with Radical Islam,” Starmann continued:
Groups like ISIS and Al-Qaeda have one goal, the complete destruction of the Judeo-Christian culture, our religions and our way of life.
Many Americans have families that have been here for decades, even centuries. Many families like mine have relatives who fought in the Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam and Desert Storm. Some families have relatives who fought in the American Revolution.
Starmann went on to defend Trump’s call for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the country, questioning, “How in God’s name are U.S. immigration authorities supposed to know the true intentions of hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees and thousands of other sundry Muslims who wish to arrive on our shores?”
