‘Vote For Me Or You’ll Get Terrorism’ Implies Muslim Mayoral Candidate


Prospective Labour mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan has made ‘sending a message’ to ‘haters’ in Iraq and Syria part of his campaign message, as he claims having a Muslim mayor “would speak volumes” to would-be terrorists abroad.

Khan’s comments are dutifully reported by The Guardian, which suggests having a Muslim mayor would be “helpful” – citing the Tunisia attack of this week and the 7/7 attacks of 2005 as proof, as if any were needed. Khan said because the 7/7 bombers were against British values, electing a Muslim mayor would send a “phenomenal message” to terrorists. He told The Guardian:

“If Londoners decided to do that, the message it would send to the rest of the world would be quite awesome. The reality is that we are a beacon in all sorts of ways. I think it’s just worth thinking about the impact it could have. It shows the confidence of Londoners – that we don’t simply tolerate but respect each other.

“The idea that the mayor of London could be son of an immigrant, son of a bus driver, ethnic minority – and by the way, of Islamic faith – would speak volumes, particularly when you bear in mind 10 years ago these four men wanted to destroy our way of life.
