A Muslim mayor of London would ‘send message to the haters’, says Sadiq Khan

Mustards say the most inane things.

Khan said politicians did need to be careful about their rhetoric – a concern highlighted in much stronger terms by former Conservative cabinet minister Sayeeda Warsi, who warned that Cameron was in danger of “alienating moderate Muslims.”
A Muslim mayor of London would ‘send message to the haters’, says Sadiq Khan

LONDON: A Muslim mayor of London would send a message to all “the haters in Iraq and in Syria” that the city is a beacon of tolerance and respect, Sadiq Khan, one of Labour candidates for the job, has said.

Khan, the first Muslim MP to be elected in London, set out his case for why it would be helpful for the capital to have a Muslim mayor just days after the terrorist attack on British tourists in Tunisia and ahead of the 10th anniversary of the 7/7 bombings next week.

The former cabinet minister is the only Muslim running to be the Labour candidate. Syed Kamall, an MEP and potential Conservative candidate, is also a Muslim.

Khan, the son of a bus driver from Pakistan, said the extremist bombers who killed 52 people on 7/7 were against British values and the British way of life, so electing a Muslim mayor would send a “phenomenal message and would say something about our confidence as a city”.

This Paki turd wouldn’t know what British values are if they came to bite him in the toosh.

“If Londoners decided to do that, the message it would send to the rest of the world would be quite awesome,” he told the Guardian. “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.

“What sort of message would it send if Londoners had the confidence, tolerance and respect to vote for someone of a different faith [from most of them]? I’m a Londoner first and foremost, but it would show the haters in Iraq and the haters in Syria what sort of country we are: a beacon. And I think the reality is sometimes you need cool, calm voices, which is what I’d hope to provide.”

Khan said he did not want to criticise either David Cameron, or Theresa May, the home secretary, over their response to the terror attack in Tunisia or their policy on tackling Islamic extremism, because he believed their intentions were good.

But he said politicians did need to be careful about their rhetoric – a concern highlighted in much stronger terms by former Conservative cabinet minister Sayeeda Warsi, who warned that Cameron was in danger of alienating moderate Muslims.

Khan did, however, recall his frustration with the reaction of Tony Blair to the 7/7 terror attacks, when the then-prime minister called in the newly elected MP and the three other Muslim Labour members of the House of Commons.

“One of my criticisms of Tony Blair was when he called the four MPs of Islamic faith into No 10 and sat us round the table and said – to Mohammad Sarwar, Khalid Mahmood, Shahid Malik and myself – it was our responsibility,” Khan said.

“I said: ‘No, it’s not. Why have you called us in? I don’t blame you for the Ku Klux Klan. Why are you blaming me for the four bombers on 7/7?’ Which is why, after he called us in, and there were lots of cameras outside waiting to speak to us, my three colleagues spoke to the cameras and I walked away. This is a problem that is a mainstream problem for us all.”

Khan said he thought there had been progress in attitudes since 7/7 and he was proud of the sense of solidarity between Muslims and non-Muslims after the attack 10 years ago. Londoners in particular “got it” that there was no need for Muslims to apologise or say “not in my name”, he added.

The MP said everyone in London now had a friend or colleague who was a Muslim, had a better understanding about fasting during Ramadan and nobody in the city “gives you funny looks because they think you’re a terrorist or a friend of a terrorist”.

Speaking about how the UK responds to the Tunisian terror attack that killed 30 Britons, Khan said the short-term concern must be the victims and their families, while the longer-term response should be maintaining good relations between the police and Muslim communities, and greater precautions against online grooming by religious extremists.

“Bearing in mind the anniversary of 7/7, 10 years on, we still have a case where a 17-year-old Yorkshireman is going to Iraq and blowing himself up, mums with children are going to Syria because they think it’s the land of milk and honey. We still have got huge problems here,” he said.

The Tooting MP said that as a parent of two teenage daughters he understood the home secretary’s aims when she said she wanted parents to report grooming by extremists to police.

“If, God forbid, I saw my nephews or nieces or children being groomed, I would report it to the authorities. I want action to be taken against those on the other side of the net and with the ISP [internet service provider] maybe. We need to make sure communities have the confidence to come forward. It is a challenge for the police to be approachable and are seen to treat people well,” he said.

Khan said his biggest concern was grooming taking place in the “ungoverned spaces – the bedroom, internet, front room” rather than in mosques and schools, where more could be done to address it openly.

“That’s where we’ve got to give young people resilience, so if there’s a charismatic criminal with a perverse ideology trying to groom them, they can say: ‘Hang on, I know that’s not Islam, I know that’s not the way to get to heaven.’

“Just like if you’re the parent of young children not to take sweets from strangers, you teach young children not to be taken in by flattery in a chatroom.”

Khan also warned that the response to the latest terrorist atrocities should not be the passage of draconian new surveillance laws, just like the attempt to introduce 90-day pre-trial detention was the wrong answer from Blair to 7/7.

“Legislation passed in haste is often bad,” he said. “One or two Tory backbenchers raised the issue today, saying clearly we need to be snooping on everyone’s data. That would be a mistake. History tells us that.”

  1. ” Cameron was in danger of “alienating moderate Muslims.””

    Should ask the former Conservative cabinet minister Sayeeda Warsi, (Baroness?) which moderate Muslims?

  2. A Muslim mayor of London would ‘send message to the haters’, says Sadiq Khan..

    The greatest haters of all time are Muslims. Hatred of the other is mandated in the koran.

  3. ISLAM CAN NEVER CO EXIST WITH OTHER FAITHS……THE PRIME DIRECTIVE OF ISLAM IS TO SUBJUGATE THE REST OF THE WORLD TO ISLAM AND SHARIAH.

    UNINFORMED PEOPLE THINK THAT IF YOU LEAVE ISLAM ALONE , ISLAM WON’T BOTHER YOU……HOW WRONG. ISLAM IS VERY INTERESTED IN YOU THE INFIDEL

    70% PLUS OF ISLAM’S SACRED TEXT IS ABOUT HOW TO FIGHT AND ANNIHILATE EHT KUFFARS /INFIDELS . Muslims in the west fool gullible , clueless christians and jews and
    other religion to engage in interfaith dialogue with them while at the same time their co religionists are buning churches, synagogues and temples in muslim majority country.

    In muslim majority countries there are no interaith dialogue , on the contrary all other faiths are insulted and subdued and eventually annihilated.

    Have you all noticed that in muslim majority countries they never talk about co-existence. Even in so call ‘moderate’ muslim country like malaysia which is a posterboy of so called successful muslim country ( LOL ), muslim supremacists insult all other faiths all the time. They demand that buddhists and hindus built their worship places in islamic style so as to blend in. They want hindus , buddhists and catholics not to build large statues so as not to offend islam, they dont want christians to have crosses on the outside , because they are like vampires and they will shrivel up at the sight of a cross or cruciifix LOL.

    Interfaith dialogue only happens in infidel countries where you have lots of clueless goody 2 shoe christians and self loathing jews who wanna win over mohamad and coexist happily with him While the muslims in the west are pretending to have iftaar dinner with the gullible christians, jews and other mindless morons and useful idiots , their co-religionists in muslim majority countries are busy burning churches, temples, syagogues, gurudwaras, beheading pagans .

    Here is something THAT EVERYONE CAN DO TO EXPOSE ISLAM IN THE WEST !

    HOW ABOUT WRITING LETTERS TO THE EDITORS OF LOCAL NEWSPAPER PERIODICALLY EXPOSING ISLAM. YOU CAN USE THE information in the following 2 links. I am sure the author of the 2 pieces of information do not mind our sharing it with the public, or at the very least you can cite the source to give them credit at the end of your article. Most newspaper will have to print your article unless they are complying with shariah .

    http://www.tawfikhamid.com/abcs-test-for-radical-islam/ —- in yr letter ask your local mosque ,Islamic Shool, and Islamic organization to clearly, unambiguously and publically denounce the following concepts:

    Apostates killing
    Beating women and stoning women to death for adultery
    Calling Jews pigs and monkeys.
    Declaring war on Non Muslims to spread Islam after offering Non Muslims three options – subjugate to Islam, pay Jizia (a humiliating tax), or be killed.
    Enslavement of Other Human Beings.
    Fighting and killing Jews before the “End of Days”.
    Gay killing.

    Why We Oppose Islam

    Islam tells Muslims not to integrate into non-Islamic countries
    Islamic culture is forced on the host nation
    Islam demands that Muslims obey and implement sharia law
    Sharia law includes:
    Polygamy, with up to fou r wives and an unlimited number of concubines;
    Child marriage, as Mohammed (the ‘perfect example’ of mankind) married a 6 year old;
    Slavery, as agreed by all four schools of Sunni jurisprudence;
    Killing of those who leave Islam, adulterers, blasphemers, critics of Islam and homosexuals;
    Women and non-Muslims being second-class citizens and men can legally beat their wives;
    Parents going unpunished if they kill their children, making ‘honour killing’ legal;
    Punishments such as beheading, whipping, stoning, cutting off hands and throwing off buildings;
    The imposition of a humiliating tax on all non-Muslims to support the Islamic ruling class; and
    enforcement of Sharia being a right of each Muslim, encouraging vigilante street ‘justice’.

    PLS MAKE THIS IDEA GO VIRAL….EVERYBODY SHOULD DO SOMETHING, IF EVERYONE DOES A LITTLE BIT, THEN TOGETHER BY THE BILLIONS AND OVER A SHORT TIME especially thro the power of exponential growth via the internet we will succeed in defeating islam. The age of the internet and the age of information exchange will be the death knell of this hideous excuse for a religion !

  4. “A Muslim mayor of London would ‘send message to the haters’, says Sadiq Khan..”

    but it would send an even bigger message to tens of millions of borderlne psychotic islamists (and ‘moderates’) that the UK’s capitulation to their sick cult was almost a done deal – and to ‘come on over’.

  5. We had a good example to compare and contrast what life would be like under muslim Mayor – Tower Hamlets in London under Mayor Lutfur Rahman. Under this muslim sub-human the elections were rigged, virtually all the budget went to his Bangladeshi cronies and the native Brits just got the crumbs. London will become a third world cesspool.

  6. I think Sadiq Khan has sent a clear message of his unsuitability for political office. He has demonstrated that he is willing to sacrifice the welfare of the majority in order that a non-representative minority can be handed the reigns of power. This is very dangerous, and I would hope that concerned people in the UK lobby Khan’s supporters to remove him. It is darkly amusing. that in Khans perspective, muslims do not need to change their behaviour, however the rest of us should accomodate them!!! NO WAY!

      1. David Cameron is a chameleon – he is a weak man who will only express opinions that are in line with his handlers – however the Brits can remove him from office if they want to. However Britian should rememeber that if you do not practise democracy you will loose it. And for Khan – one way ticket to islamabad along with the musilm crims that tried to run Tower Hamlets into the ground.

  7. Every time I read another report about the steady capitulation of UK to Islam, I think of the waste of lost lives of the true heroes and heroines of WWI and WWII (and earlier wars) who died to pass on freedom to the current crop of lazy, cowardly ingrates. If they elect another Muslim as mayor or PM or whatever, it will just add another chain to their burden of crimes and make me despise their cowardice even more than I do now.

    Only the “Resistance” (or the “dissidents” as Bill Warner suggests that we call ourselves) have the inner strength to defend our civilisation against the encroaching Muslims and toady scum who enable the Muslims and Communists to gain ever more power. Paul Weston rightly calls it “treason”!

    As for the status of women and children in Islam, “Reliance of the Traveller and Tools for the Worshipper”

    o1.2 The following are not subject to retaliation:
    (1) a child or insane person, under any circumstances (O: whether Muslim or non-Muslim.
    The ruling for a person intermitently insane is that he is considered as a sane person when in his right mind, and as if someone continously insane when in an interval of insanity. If someone against whom retaliation is obligatory subsequently becomes insane, the full penalty is nevertheless exacted. A
    homicide committed by someone who is drunk is (A: considered the same as that of a sane person,) like his pronouncing divorce (dis: n1.2));
    (2) a Muslim for killing a non-Muslim;
    (3) a Jewish or Christian subject of the Islamic state for killing an apostate from Islam (O: because a subject of the state is under its protection, while killing an apostate from Islam is without consequences);
    (4) a father or mother (or their fathers of mothers) fir killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring;
    (5) nor is retaliation permissible to a descendant for (A: his ancestor’s) killing someone whose death would otherwise entitle the descendant to retaliate, such as when his father kills his mother.”

  8. http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/quran/003-wife-beating.htm

    “Question:
    Does Islam permit a man to hit his wife?

    Summary Answer:
    Yes, but only if she doesn’t do as he asks. The beating must cease if the woman complies with her husband’s demands. Beating is also intended to be the last resort of coercing submission, behind verbal abuse and abandonment.

    According her testimony in the Hadith, Muhammad, physically struck his favorite wife for leaving the house without his permission. It is not known how he treated his less-favored wives.

    The Qur’an:
    Qur’an (4:34) – “Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.” Contemporary translations sometimes water down this word, but it is the same one used in verse 8:12 and clearly means ‘to strike’.

    Qur’an (38:44) – “And take in your hand a green branch and beat her with it, and do not break your oath…” Allah telling Job to beat his wife (Tafsir).

    From the Hadith:

    Bukhari (72:715) – A woman came to Muhammad and begged her to stop her husband from beating her. Her skin was bruised so badly that she it is described as being “greener” than the green veil she was wearing. Muhammad did not admonish her husband, but instead ordered her to return to him and submit to his sexual desires.

    Bukhari (72:715) – “Aisha said, ‘I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women'” This is Muhammad’s own wife complaining of the abuse that the women of her religions suffer relative to other women.

    Muslim (4:2127) – Muhammad struck his favorite wife, Aisha, in the chest one evening when she left the house without his permission. Aisha narrates, “He struck me on the chest which caused me pain.”

    Muslim (9:3506) – Muhammad’s father-in-laws (Abu Bakr and Umar) amused him by slapping his wives (Aisha and Hafsa) for annoying him. According to the Hadith, the prophet of Islam laughed upon hearing this.

    Abu Dawud (2141) – “Iyas bin ‘Abd Allah bin Abi Dhubab reported the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) as saying: Do not beat Allah’s handmaidens, but when ‘Umar came to the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) and said: Women have become emboldened towards their husbands, he (the Prophet) gave permission to beat them.” At first, Muhammad forbade men from beating their wives, but he rescinded this once it was reported that women were becoming emboldened toward their husbands. Beatings are sometimes necessary to keep women in their place.

    Abu Dawud (2142) – “The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife.”

    Abu Dawud (2126) – “A man from the Ansar called Basrah said: ‘I married a virgin woman in her veil. When I entered upon her, I found her pregnant. (I mentioned this to the Prophet).’ The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: ‘She will get the dower, for you made her vagina lawful for you. The child will be your slave. When she has begotten (a child), flog her'” A Muslim man thinks his is getting a virgin, then finds out she is pregnant. Muhammad tells him to treat the woman as a sex slave and then flog her after she has delivered the child.

    Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 969 – Requires that a married woman be “put in a separate room and beaten lightly” if she “act in a sexual manner toward others.” According to the Hadith, this can be for an offense as petty as merely being alone with a man to whom she is not related.

    Kash-shaf (the revealer) of al-Zamkhshari (Vol. 1, p. 525) – [Muhammad said] “Hang up your scourge where your wife can see it”

    Additional Notes: …”
