In wake of yesterday’s London terror attack, we can’t help but remember when the Muslim mayor of London said “terrorism” was just part of “urban life.”
During a trip to New York, Sadiq Khan, the Muslim mayor of London told Americans that terror attacks are part of urban life.
That’s a very liberal mindset, to roll over and accept that the enemy will attack you.
We must reject terror attacks in any part of life by calling out the enemy, doing away with dangerous political correctness, and rejecting importing Islamic terror.
On a trip to New York City, London’s Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan has said terror attacks are “part and parcel” of urban life, just hours after an Islamic terrorist bombed the city.
Mr. Khan also seized the opportunity to launch an explicit attack on the Brexit vote and rise of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. He compared to two movements, claiming they are both driven by “scapegoating”.
“All these problems will not be solved by voting to leave the EU or voting for – I don’t want to name the candidate – a president of the USA,” he said.
He said that he and Bill de Blasio, the Mayor of New York, “believe in building bridges rather than walls” and that there are leaders “who address people’s concerns” and others “who play on people’s fears”.
The London Mayor joked that he “shouldn’t really get involved in the American elections”, but added: “I hope the best candidate wins – I’m sure she will”, repeating his endorsement of Hillary Clinton which he first made in Chicago last week.
Building Inclusive Cities: Mayor Bill de Blasio in conversation with London Mayor Sadiq Khan at LaGuardia Community College in Long Island City.
The two left-wing mayors, of London and New York, were speaking at an event called ‘Building Progressive, Inclusive Cities’ in New York. It is the second time the men have met, after coming together before at the Labour party conference in Britain last year.
Earlier on Sunday, Mr. Khan had spoken at a “meeting for Muslim community leaders” where he also addressed the attacks.
“It is a reality I’m afraid that London, New York, other major cities around the world have got to be prepared for these sorts of things,” he said, the Evening Standard reports.
