Muslim Leading London's Mayoral Race is linked to ISIS Supporting Imam - Britain going to the dogs
Friday, April 22, 2016
U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron took the increasingly bitter battle
for the London mayoralty into Parliament by questioning the judgment of
the opposition Labour Party’s candidate, Sadiq Khan, for appearing
together with an imam whom the premier said supports Islamic State. Khan,
who was a human-rights lawyer before entering Parliament in 2005, has
shared a platform with Sulaiman Ghani, a local Muslim cleric, nine
times, Cameron told the House of Commons, to loud condemnation by Labour
“This man supports IS,” Cameron said of the
imam during his weekly question-and-answer session on Wednesday. “They
are shouting down this point because they don’t want to hear the truth.
Anyone can make a mistake about who they appear on a platform with.
We’re not always responsible for what our political opponents say. But
if you do it time after time after time, it is right to question your
judgment.” Khan currently
leads Cameron’s Conservative Party candidate, Zac Goldsmith, in polls
ahead of the May 5 vote to replace London Mayor Boris Johnson, a Tory
who bucked the trend by winning control of Labour-leaning London for two
consecutive four-year terms.
Goldsmith has sought to play up the links
between Khan, a Muslim, and Islamist clerics, while also repeatedly
calling him “radical.” That’s led Khan to accuse his opponent of running
a “divisive” campaign.
