Forget the media-hyped back and forth between President Donald Trump and London Mayor Sadiq Khan that has Trump rightfully condemning Khan for Khan’s “no big deal” approach to dealing with the repeated terrorist attacks in London. What continues to go largely unreported are Khan’s long-standing ties to Islamic extremists, including his defense of a 9/11 terrorist.
What is going on here? How is it a supporter of radical Islam becomes mayor of London and is being fast-tracked to be a future Prime Minister of Great Britain? And why is the Mainstream Media so clearly determined to cover up Khan’s shocking extremist past?
Consider that today Mayor Khan is asking to ban President Trump from visiting London due to Khan’s view that Trump is “too extreme” and does not represent what “London stands for.”
And yet, Khan was not too long ago demanding American Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who has described Jews as ‘blood-suckers’ called Hitler ‘a very great man’ and advocated violence against non-Muslims, be allowed to visit London. (Great Britain has long banned Farrakhan from entering the country.)
In 2004 Khan defended the radical Muslim scholar Yusuf Al-Qaradawi who Khan argued was being unfairly portrayed as an extremist by political conservatives in England. And yet, Al-Qaradawi authored the book The Lawful and Prohibited in Islam which advocates for the subjugation of women and condones suicide bombings against Israel which he considers to be ‘God’s justice’. That is the real Al-Qaradawi, the man Mayor Khan says is NOT an extremist. (But Donald Trump is in Mr. Khan’s eyes.)
In 2006 Khan signed a letter that lay blame for the terror attacks in Great Britain on the policies of Great Britain, saying those policies (namely support of Israel) were motivating Muslims to attack them. During the mayoral race that saw Khan elected, when this subject was briefly brought up it was condemned by the British Press as an act of Islamophobia. Khan was given a pass, the British people were kept ignorant of his statements, and he won the election.
