Islamic Terror Defender Sadiq Khan Says Welcoming Trump is "Un-British"
If you believe London city boss Sadiq Khan, he's more British than the Queen for opposing Trump.
In an unhinged Guardian post, Sadiq Khan, a former lawyer for the Nation of Islam and defender of assorted Islamic terrorists, compares Trump to Putin, Kim Jong-Un, and "a growing global threat".
"It’s so un-British to be rolling out the red carpet this week for a formal state visit for a president whose divisive behaviour flies in the face of the ideals America was founded upon – equality, liberty and religious freedom," Khan whines.
Those are the same ideals that Islam firmly rejects.
Khan ought to know something about that.
In 2001 he was the lawyer for the Nation of Islam in its successful High Court bid to overturn the 15-year-ban on its leader, Louis Farrakhan.
In 2005 and 2006 he visited terror-charged Babar Ahmad in Woodhill Prison. Mr. Ahmed was extradited to the U.S. in 2012, serving time in prison before being returned to the UK in 2015. Mr. Ahmed pleaded guilty to the terrorist offences of conspiracy and providing material support to the Taliban.
And Mr. Khan also campaigned for the release and repatriation of Shaker Aamer, Britain's last Guantanamo detainee, who was returned to the UK in November.
Both Messrs Aamer and Ahmed provided Mr. Khan with links to the advocacy group CAGE, which described the Islamic State executioner Mohammed Emwazi as a "beautiful young man" and which has campaigned on behalf of both men. Mr. Khan is reported to have shared a stage with five Islamic extremists, including at sex-segregated events.
The ConservativeHome website lists even more concerns, including:
A letter to the Guardian in the wake of the 7/7 terrorist bombings on London, blaming terrorism on British government policy;
His legal defence of Zacarias Moussaoui, a 9/11 terrorist who confessed to being a member of Al Qaeda;
His chapter in a book, entitled "Actions Against the Police," which advises on how to bring charges against the police for "racism." This is the same police force that Mr. Khan as London mayor would exercise authority over;
His defence of Islamist extremist Azzam Tamimi. When Dr. Tamimi told a crowd that the publication of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammed would "cause the world to tremble" and predicted "Fire... throughout the world if they don't stop," Mr. Khan, who shared a platform with him, dismissed the threats as "flowery language."
His platform-sharing with Suliman Gani, a south London imam who has urged female subservience to men and called for the founding of an Islamic state.
These are examples of Khan's British values and his support for equality and freedom of religion.
