Mayor of London Sadiq Khan

Today’s face of the day, Sadiq Khan has made a statement as the Mayor of London but it also sounds like a statement from a Muslim in authority, speaking on behalf of other Muslims. He was elected to represent and speak for the people of London. I was hopeful that his religion would come second to his British identity but sadly it appears that he puts Islam before both London and the UK. His statement could be interpreted as an attack on not just The UK  but on America as well. Basically he has issued a warning to Donald Trump: Moderate your stance on Muslims, or they will launch more attacks against America.

Donald Trump’s ignorant view of Islam could make both of our countries less safe – it risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays into the hands of extremists,” he said. “Donald Trump and those around him think that Western liberal values are incompatible with mainstream Islam – London has proved him wrong.”

While Khan touted the liberal values of British Muslims, some polls have found worrying indicators that their assimilation is incomplete. A poll in April, for instance, found that two-thirds of British Muslims would not tell the government if a friend or family member became involved with extremists. Half of them said homosexuality should be illegal and over 20 percent supported establishing sharia in the U.K.

Trump told the New York Times on Monday that he was happy to see Khan elected as mayor of London last week. “There will always be exceptions,” he said of his proposed temporary ban on Muslims.

Khan has disparaged Trump’s racially charged campaign, comparing it to the much-criticised tactics of his defeated Conservative rival Zac Goldsmith, who sought to draw attention to platforms Khan had shared with Muslim extremists.
