His name is Sadiq Khan and he is the newly elected mayor of London. He is a radical Muslim with a past that he desperately wishes to hide.
John Adams once said:
Meet the First Muslim Mayor of London
- Conservative Party candidate Zac Goldsmith accused Khan of giving “platform, oxygen and cover” to Islamic extremists. He also accused Khan of “hiding behind Britain’s Muslims” by branding as “Islamophobes” those who shed light on his past.
- “The questions are genuine, they are serious. They are about his willingness to share platforms with people who want to ‘drown every Israeli Jew in the sea.’ It’s about his having employed someone who believed the Lee Rigby murder was fabricated. It’s about his career before being an MP, coaching people in how to sue the police.” — Conservative Party candidate Zac Goldsmith.
- In 2008, Khan gave a speech at the Global Peace and Unity Conference, an event organized by the Islam Channel, which has been censured repeatedly by British media regulators for extremism. Members of the audience were filmed flying the black flag of jihad while Khan was speaking.
- “I regret giving the impression I subscribed to their views and I’ve been quite clear I find their views abhorrent.” — Sadiq Khan. (taqiyya) (Emphasis mine)
- “A Muslim man with way too many extremist links to be entirely coincidental is now the Mayor of London. I suppose this is hardly a shock, though. The native English are a demographic minority (and a rapidly dwindling one) in London, whilst Muslims from Pakistan and Bangladesh are a rapidly expanding demographic.” — British politician Paul Weston. -source
It is not difficult to understand why Mr. Khan won this election. Over half of the citizens of London are Muslim. I do hope that Americans are watching this closely; but unfortunately the bleeding heart liberals will proclaim how wonderful it is that a Muslim is governing London! They will undoubtably think that the people of London are SO openminded – not Islamophobic as are many Americans! They will be totally oblivious to the fact that Muslims outnumber non Muslims in London.
You see, while Muslims are known to have very large families, non-Muslims in the UK are aborting their offspring at an alarming rate – much like Americans. One only has to do the math to see the outcome of this scenario.
The Muslims desire and their mission is to have Sharia Law instated in “host” countries. I have read that Muslims in BHO’s administration have called the U.S. Constitution “Sharia compliant.” This is a blatant lie. The Constitution stands on its own, and its very foundation is liberty. The first Amendment clearly shows that our founders believed in the right of the individual to have freedom of speech. This would not be tolerated under Sharia law. Islam itself is really more than just a “religion.” It is a totalitarian political system. The average American has no idea about this. They believe that Islam is simply a religion like any other. This could not be further from the truth.

Goldsmith also drew attention to Khan’s ties with Suliman Gani, a Muslim cleric in Tooting, the constituency in South London where Khan is an MP. “To share a platform nine times with Suliman Gani, one of the most repellent figures in this country, you don’t do it by accident,” Goldsmith said.
Goldsmith was referring to a Sunday Times exposé, which revealed that between 2004 and 2013, Khan had spoken alongside Gani on at least nine occasions, “even though Gani has called women ‘subservient’ to men and condemned homosexuality, gay marriage, and even organ transplants.”
Gani — who has ties to the extremist Islamist group Hizb-ut-Tahrir, and has rallied in support of Shaker Aamer, an al-Qaeda terrorist who was detained at Guantanamo Bay — is also linked to the London-based Tayyibun Institute, which the British government says“tolerates or promotes non-violent extremism.”
According to the Times, on the night of the Paris attacks in November 2015, Gani appeared at an “Islamic question time” event in Bedford, where speakers reportedly told British Muslims to “struggle” for an “Islamic state.”
Khan and Gani first shared a platform in August 2004 at an event organized by Stop Political Terror, a group supported by Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical American imam who was killed in 2011 by a CIA-led drone strike in Yemen. According to the Times, Khan spoke at least four times at events organized by Stop Political Terror, which has since merged with CAGE, a group that called the Islamic State butcher Jihadi John a “beautiful young man.”
In an interview with the Times, Davis Lewin, deputy director of the Henry Jackson Society, an anti-extremism think tank, said:
“Gani has campaigned on behalf of convicted terrorists, appeared at events designed to undermine government counter-radicalization strategies, including sharing platforms with a pro-terrorist organization such as CAGE, and is said to hold repugnant views about women and the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans community.
“Given that the UK, and London in particular, is a major target for Islamist-inspired terrorist attacks, it is intolerable to see any politician, much less one seeking such a vitally important office as mayor of London, associate with an individual such as this.
“Mr Khan’s reportedly repeatedly sharing a platform with this man, whose views are widely available, is deeply alarming.”
Khan also spent years campaigning to prevent Babar Ahmad from being extradited to the United States on charges of providing material support to terrorism. Ahmad, who admitted his guilt, later said that his support for the Taliban was “naïve.”
In 2002, Khan represented the leader of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan. Khan tried to reverse a decision by the Home Office, which had banned Farrakhan from entering the UK due to fears that his anti-Semitic views would stir up racial hatred. Farrakhan hascalled Jews “bloodsuckers” and referred to Judaism as “a gutter religion.”
At the time, Khan said: “Mr. Farrakhan is not anti-Semitic and does not preach a message of racial hatred and antagonism.” Khan added:
“Farrakhan is preaching a message of self-discipline, self-reliance, atonement and responsibility. He’s trying to address the issues and problems we have in the UK, black on black crime and problems in the black community. It’s outrageous and astonishing that the British Government is trying to exclude this man.”
In 2004, Khan was the chief legal advisor to the Muslim Council of Britain, a group linkedto the Muslim Brotherhood. Khan defended Yusuf al-Qaradawi, an Egyptian-born Islamist who has been banned from entering the UK. Al-Qaradawi has expressed support for Hamas suicide bombings against Israel: “It’s not suicide, it is martyrdom in the name of Allah.” According to Khan, however, “Quotes attributed to this man may or may not be true.” – source
Brethren, this is what is coming to America. Our president has done everything in his power to place radical Muslims in key positions in our State Department and in DHS. The White House is filled with radical Muslims, including Obama’s Senior Advisor, Valerie Jarrett. The head of our CIA, John Brennan is a Muslim. I could go on and on, but I think you see what is happening in America.
We who belong to the Lord Jesus Christ are so blessed. Our eternal home is heaven. The Lord is watching over us every minute of every day. We also are blessed to know that the things happening in this world are no surprise to our God. He is in full control. Many events were told to us in God’s prophetic Word. We see these events happening on the world stage every day.
Many are still praying for America to be “Great again.” I firmly believe that the days of greatness for us are gone. We should concentrate on our witness to the lost. I believe that America is under the judgment of God, and rightly so.
As the Lord said to Paul after his encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus:
“To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me” (Acts 26:18).
