In the wake of the Westminster Islamic Terror attack, many are questioning terror-linked Sadiq Kahn’s suitability as London Mayor
Saturday 25 March 2017
After Wednesday’s Islamic terror attack in Westminster, much has been said regarding London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s recent comments about terror attacks being “part and parcel” of living in a major city. His attitude comes as no surprise though to those who have followed khan’s rise from the son of a bus driver in Tooting to the first muslim Mayor of London – as well as his dalliances with Islamic terrorism and extremism along the way.
As a child growing up in West London, Khan palled about with a young Babar Ahmad – whom would grow up to be a Taliban affiliate that went on to serve a 12 and a half year prison sentence in the US for terrorism charges. As an adult, Khan abused his position, and the influence he held, as an MP for several years to fight against his childhood friend’s extradition from the UK to stand trial Stateside. Indeed, so hard did Khan work on trying to help his boyhood pal escape justice, that he had just a 65% attendance rate in parliament during the period that his Taliban mate was fighting extradition.
Of course fighting on behalf of muslim terrorists was nothing new for Khan – it was his day job before he became an MP. Khan started out as a human rights lawyer who spent his legal career defending terrorists; a kind of muslim-Saul Goodman to various islamic terrorist-Walter Whites. A Tom Hagen to the Taliban. And when he wasn’t helping Islamic terrorists to escape justice he was defending dodgy muslim police officers who were up on corruption charges, like Iranian muslim Ali Dizaei – now, unbelievably, a chief superintendent. Dizaei was subject to Operation Helios, a major investigation into the Iranian’s alleged corruption. Although the operation uncovered his deep character flaws, there was not enough evidence to convict Dizaei and Khan managed to secure his client a compensation package including an £80,000 payout and, unbelievably, a promotion!
Later on, Scotland Yard’s top terror cops became so concerned by Khan’s links to Islamic terrorism that they twice placed him under surveillance. By then Khan’s sister Farhat had married a member of notorious extremist group Al-Muhajiroun, and Khan himself had also been flirting with hate preachers and extremists.
2001 saw Khan attempting to overturn a ban on infamous Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan entering the UK. Farrakhan is a well known racist and Islamic supremacist who has in the past described white people as “devils by nature”, jews as “bloodsuckers” and has praised Hitler as a “very great man”.
In 2003 Sadiq Khan shared a platform with a convicted terrorist child killer and a militant who helped to train the ringleader of the 7/7 London bomb attacks. Khan spoke at a conference in the capital alongside Yasser al-Siri, who had been sentenced to death in Egypt over the murder of a young girl. Another speaker was Sajeel Abu Ibrahim, better known as Sajeel Shahid, a member of al-Muhajiroun, a terrorist group later banned in the UK. He ran a camp in Pakistan which trained jihadis to fight with the Taliban.
In August 2004, Khan attended a conference alongside Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical ‘American’ imam later killed in a US airstrike in Yemen. Awlaki was known as the ‘online bin Laden’ for his skill in radicalising muslims and recruiting them to Al Qaeda via the web. Khan also shared a platform with Adnan Siddiqui, now a prominent member of the notorious Islamist group Cage – which once described Jihad John as a “beautiful young man”. Siddiqui himself is no stranger to controversial comments – once describing jihad as an “important concept” and stating that suicide bombings are “a price worth paying”.
Then just a month later, the Mayor of London took part in an pro-Hamas event organised by Friends of Al-Aqsa, a shady Islamist group whom the Co-op Bank had recently severed its ties with, with no comment as to why. Khan appeared alongside Dr Daud Abdullah, a hate preacher whom has backed Islamic violence against Israel and the British forces; Ibrahim Hewitt, then boss of Islamic ‘charity’ organisation Interpal – since designated a fund raising front for terror group Hamas by the US Treasury Department – whom also wrote a pamphlet calling for adulterers to be stoned to death; radical imam Suliman Gani, an Islamist whom supports ISIS and has called for the destruction of Israel; and a Muslim leader who served under fugitive Hamas leader Mohammed Sawalha on the hardline Islamist group the British Muslim Initiative (BMI). As is customary of misogynistic muslim events, women were segregated and made to enter the event via a back entrance.
A year later in 2005, in the wake of the Islamic 7/7 terror attack in London, Khan was campaigning against the proposed – and later implemented – Terrorism Act 2006, over his concern for the rights of terrorists.
Then in 2006, Khan attended a rally in Trafalgar Square against the publication of cartoons of the prophet Mohammed, where hate preacher Dr Azzam Tamimi threatened “fire throughout the world” if the cartoonists did not stop. Azzam has also made comments backing suicide bombing.
Also in 2006, Khan signed an open letter to the Guardian alongside two other Muslim MPs, three Islamic peers and 38 Muslim community groups, which blamed the 7/7 bombings and other acts of Islamic terrorism on the UK’s support of Israel. The letter was also signed by MPs Shahid Malik (Dewsbury) and Mohammed Sarwar (Glasgow Central), and peers Lord Patel of Blackburn, Lord Ahmed of Rotherham and Baroness Uddin. Other signatories included the Muslim Council of Britain, the Muslim Association of Britain, British Muslim Forum and the lobby group, the Muslim Parliament of Great Britain.
2006 also saw Khan criticising the Labour party’s decision to suspend Ken Livingstone in 2006 when he compared a Jewish Evening Standard journalist to a Nazi concentration camp guard.
Three years later in 2009, when he was ‘minister for community cohesion’ – a position in charge of supposed Government efforts to stamp out Islamic extremism – Khan described moderate muslims as “Uncle Toms” during an interview with an Iranian TV channel. Uncle Tom is a derogatory phrase used to by Muslims to describe others whom integrate and refuse to take part in jihad.
And between the aforementioned event in 2004 and 2013, Khan appeared a further eight times alongside the previously mentioned infamous Tooting hate preacher Suliman Gani, whom has also called women “subservient” to men and condemned homosexuality, gay marriage, and even organ transplants – and is a supporter of ISIS.
Fast forward to September 2016 and Khan says that terror attacks are “part and parcel” of living in a major city. No surprise he feels that way, with the company he keeps…
