By Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Erin Oberholtzer, USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70) Public Affairs.

NEWPORT NEWS (NNS) -- A USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70) officer has broken stereotypes in the Navy across all ranks during the past 22 years.

Cmdr. Muhammad Khan, Air Department's Head of Department emigrated from Karachi, Pakistan in 1981, to earn a bachelor's degree in Computer Science at North Texas State University. Later, fascinated with Naval Aviation after watching the movie Top Gun, he enlisted in the Navy in 1987.

"He is a great guy and a natural leader. He doesn't care about nationality or religion. He lets your work speak for you," said Lt.j.g. Rami Islam, Engineering department's auxiliary division officer. "He is breaking stereotypes and making a name for Muslims and immigrants in the military."

Well, I assume after 20+ years, he’s a fully gung ho Naval officer first and foremost. That’s a pretty intense and all-consuming life. If you stick in it and excell, it literally becomes your life. That’s my take.

Let me say that if it wasn't, he'd be the assistant engineering officer on a garbage scowl in San Diego harbour.

LTJG Rami Islam’s dad is Hesham Islam, formerly an advisor to the Deputy Secretary of Defense, Gordon England. Hesham is a retired Navy commander with some questionable past associations.

I think he’s a brother, as in Muslim Brotherhood. He’s Egyptian.

The last thing that we should be doing is inviting more Muslims into our military or country. This does not even begin to offset all the problems that Muslims are causing in America. The bottom line with Muslim immigration is trouble.

While at Bell Labs within a Integrated Circuit Design group I worked directly with a electrical engineer from both Iran and Afghanistan. They where both great people to work with. They got out of their countries with their families years back and wanted no part of their native country.

He was identified by the FBI as a Muslim Brotherhood member. They have infiltrated every aspect of our country.

That is not true, this man’s father has a high ranking position at the Pentagon and the FBI has identified him as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Yet he did not get fired, but he got another man fired because he did not like that he was investigating the Islamic scriptures themselves. Our govt is more concerned with being politically correct than anything else and they are clueless on how Islam tells Muslims to be deceptive. Look at CAIR, many of our politicians still embrace them.

Not all moslems are worthless pigs and it's certainly possible that the Commander is one of the decent ones.But a large enough percentage of them *are* pigs that we must be,at the very least,*very* cautious in allowing any of them to serve in our Armed Forces.

The funny part is that it is another Muslim whose father is a Muslim Brotherhood member praising him. Should we do cartwheels over this? Is this supposed to offset the threat that Islam brings to the world? “Moderate” Muslims are not coming to the rescue.

The reason another Muslim was vouching for him was because a navy journalist thought it would be a neat hook in the story.

I’ve known CDR. Khan since he was a LT. He’s been a division officer, an XO, and a CO of the S-3 Viking squadrons (those were the sub-hunting jets the US got rid of last year).

He also has a brother in the service.

BTW, I’ve never seen him with a Koran, that is a staged photo in the ships chapel.

“BTW, I’ve never seen him with a Koran, that is a staged photo in the ships chapel.”

Who ever thought of this should read a Koran, it is nothing to be promoting. Articles like this just spread false hope that after 1400 years “moderate” Muslims are coming to the rescue.

Thanks.
