ISIS joined Donald Trump on Sunday in dishonoring the sacrifice of U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan.
The newest issue of the so-called Islamic State’s propaganda magazine Dabiq said theMuslim war hero died as an “apostate” when he was killed by a car bomb in Iraq in 2004 after ordering soldiers under his command to stand back as he moved foward to investigate the vehicle.
Khan was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star and Purple Heart and is buried at Arlington National Cemetery. ISIS published a picture of his headstone and captioned it, “Beware of dying as an apostate.”
The terrorist group calls all Muslims who don’t adhere to its narrow ideology apostates and reserves particular ire for those who live and participate in Western democracies.
Like ISIS, Trump made the issue Islam instead of Khan.
And on the same day that ISIS smeared his name, Trump excoriated Khan’s parents, who addressed their son’s sacrifice and Trump’s anti-Muslim racism at the Democratic National Convention.
