The triumph of the jihad-friendly Sadiq Khan as mayor of London has been warmly welcomed by the ruling class of Britain. Why? Because he's a Muslim. But why should that be considered desirable? Because it will "send signals" to Muslims likely to attack us and these signals will make them less likely to attack us, the argument seems to run. But this state of mind, in which aggression against us produces a desire to mollify the aggressor, is the very essence of appeasement. Enoch Powell put it well in the 1970s.
The experience of the last decade and more, all round the world, shows that acts of violence, however apparently irrational or inappropriate their targets, precipitate a frenzied search on the part of the society attacked to discover and remedy more and more grievances, real or imaginary, among those from whom the violence is supposed to emanate or on whose behalf it is supposed to be exercised. Those commanding a position of political leverage would then be superhuman if they could refrain from pointing to the acts of terrorism and, while condemning them, declaring that further and faster concessions and grants of privilege are the only means to avoid such acts being repeated on a rising scale. We know that those who thus argue will always find a ready hearing. This is what produces the gearing effect of terrorism in the contemporary world, yielding huge results from acts of violence perpetrated by minimal numbers. It is not, I repeat again and again, that the mass of a particular population are violently or criminally disposed. Far from it; that population soon becomes itself the prisoner of the violence and machinations of an infinitely small minority among it. Just a few thugs, a few shots, a few bombs at the right place and time and that is enough for disproportionate consequences to follow.The fact that our rulers now welcome Muslim rule in the capital city of Britain is, in part, the result of this "gearing effect" Muslim terrorism has produced. In the video, we see the invaders celebrating their triumph over the indigenous people. Anti-British racist (link) Doreen Lawrence hugs him and gives a speech. The Jews have also welcomed his election.
In interviews with the JC during the campaign, Mr Khan said he would support inter-faith initiatives, Jewish schools and security measures for the community.
He has also said he would fight anti-Israel boycott initiatives and look to build ties between London and Tel Aviv.
Mr Khan admitted he changed his position on Israel boycotts after the JC revealed that Mr Khan had repeatedly called on ministers to impose sanctions in 2009. He told the JC afterwards: “The evidence clearly shows that boycott, sanctions and divestment against Israel do not help us achieve peace – we must not turn our face against Israel.
“As the boycotts of Sodastream International showed, boycotts only hurt working people and do nothing to build a lasting peace in the region.”
“I’m going to be the mayor of the entire city. It’s really important that you know I’ll be on your side when it comes to the challenges the Jewish community will face. I am my own person, my own man.”
As Communities Minister during Gordon Brown’s premiership, Mr Khan worked with the Board of Deputies and other communal groups, particularly on interfaith projects.
His own Muslim faith had aided his efforts to understand Jewish ways of life, he explained. “We have a huge amount in common. We need to see the great work in the past that the Board of Deputies and Muslim Council of Britain have done together on halal and kosher food and male circumcision. I’m optimistic about the future.”
Three times last summer Mr Khan began his Ramadan fast at synagogues, discussing with rabbis ways to make London a beacon for interfaith efforts.
He has also cited his past work with Mitzvah Day, former Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks and Jewish Labour peer Lord Mitchell. He said: “There’s so much we can do together, that’s why I’m excited about this job. Just imagine the message it would send to other parts of the world where communities don’t get on. I’m completely comfortable in a synagogue, you’re perfectly comfortable with me, even though we’re of different faiths.
“What’s important to me is that we have zero tolerance of antisemitism. I will ensure there are sufficient police resources and the resources of City Hall to address this issue.
“One of the things that has impressed me with the Community Security Trust is that they are now helping Muslim communities address Islamophobia. Many of the challenges the Jewish community have been through over the centuries, now London’s Muslim community are facing.”
Visits to the Nightingale House Jewish residential home in the MP’s Tooting constituency in south-west London have added to Mr Khan’s understanding of the immigrant background stories that Muslims and Jews share.
He said: “My daughters grew up in an environment where Jewish friends come to our house and fast during Ramadan. We should celebrate that.”Source
