Here’s a story that will shock no one – Islamic leaders aren’t exactly thrilled with Donald Trump’s threat to ban Muslim immigration from the U.S.
I’ll note that there is some debate as to whether or not Trump made such a promise for rhetorical purposes, or if he actually plans on banning Muslim immigration. Admittedly, it would be nearly impossible to actually screen if someone if Muslim (after all, how hard is it to lie about what religion you practice?). In that case, it’s much more likely that the immigration ban wouldn’t be specifically targeted towards Muslims, but citizens from countries that tend to export a lot of terrorists to the rest of the world.
Regardless, Muslim leaders ain’t happy. As the Conservative Daily Post reported:
Obama’s top ally in London — Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan — has issued a warning to Donald Trump. Khan indicated that if Trump did not moderate his stance on Muslims, they will launch more attacks against America.
Khan has some serious and troublesome history some of which includes his defense of Islamist extremist Azzam Tamimi, and 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.
He is nothing more than a Muslim jihadi sympathizer that is trying to tell President Trump how to handle Muslims in America.
Khan has had dealings with Islamic extremists in the past, by the way.
Khan’s record regarding involvement in extremist ideologies is far from clean. Prior to his campaign for mayor, he made numerous statements emphasizing his Islamic ties, which he hoped would incite voters to elect him (why? God knows….). Purportedly, Khan’s desire in making such statements were to highlight the advantage of having a fellow Muslim in power as a means to negotiate with radical Islamic activists. He even promised to be “the British Muslim who takes the fight to the extremists.”
The majority of concerns stem not from any outright extremist activities, but from his defense of them. Following 9/11, the then-lawyer joined the defense team protecting one of the masterminds behind the horrific terrorist attacks, Zacharias Moussaoui, who later confessed to being a member of Al Qaeda.
What a great guy! Thank God we’ll be keeping people like him OUT!
