Too bad Nidal Hasan's parents aren't around to speak at the convention.
They could tell us about his sacrifice also.

They immigrated here from Palestine.

Except the job that Trump aspires to is that of a politician, a job that requires specificity of language, if he can't do that then I don't know how he can be considered qualified for the job. The job of the Presidency requires precise speech, the ability to include words and phrases that can be later denied of ignored. That's just a simple fact.

So you came up with 94 in the last few years and conveniently left out a few home grown terror attacks like Columbine not to mention the 15,000 killed each year by guns. I noticed your reference isn't the FBI, a blogger.

There are many killings each year in USA due to drugs, robbery, prostitution, etc.

The stats compares killings done in the name of an ideology or political reasons, that's what it is comparing. Muslims with only 1% population are vying for the top spot.

Columbine shooting happened in 1991, if you want to roll the clock back till then, you then have to add 9/11 done by the Muslims. Be careful what you wish for.

Yes you are precise but I have yet to hear anyone make such a statement when it comes to other families that had sons and paid the price. If you can find a reference anywhere on this board I would live to hear it, now what might be different that this suddenly comes up now.

Dems want to completely ignore religion as a predictor of terrorism. If you want to say 99% of Muslims are not terrorist, I would go along with you but at the same time 99% of todays terrorists are Muslim. Give me a formula that would take this ratio into account. Remember the Ebola scare? Why were a handful of countries picked for quarantine? I bet you could argue that 99% of the people there were Ebola-free too.

More lies smoke and mirrors from the left.
Actually, the hijabbed mother just stood there like a dummy. The father did all of the talking. Cankles sacrificed many nights without her beloved Bill.

The Democrats bringing the the Khan family feels very contrived to give a dishonest narrative about the issue at hand.

I agree as well. Mr. Trump's message with respect to Muslims are similar in intent to comments regarding illegal immigrants from Central America. Trump does have a problem expressing himself clearly and avoiding language that can land him in trouble. But if you pay attention to the broad message, it is aimed at illegal immigration, not to Muslims or Latin Americans already in the U.S., and not to Muslims or Latinos that are productive members of American society.


As far as the Khan family, no one doubts their sincerity or their son's sacrifice. But the segment was consistent with a general effort on the part of the Democratic Party to avoid, by misdirection, dealing with the issue of Islamic terrorism and its relationship to uncontrolled immigration. Very similar to "never mind what the emails said, the Russians got them to help Trump!"
