| Boris Johnson Impressed with Israel, Thinks Islam Leaves Much to be Desired
| Tuesday, June 25, 2019
Jihad Watch : Boris Johnson is the front-runner in the Conservative Party to succeed
Theresa May as Prime Minister.
He has held a multitude of jobs in his
hyperactive life. He was first a journalist, writing for The Times, the Daily Telegraph, and The Spectator.
He wrote about politics, society, culture; a man of many interests, for
a time he even wrote a column on cars. He was an MP from 2001 to 2008
and again from 2015; he served two terms as the Mayor of London, from
2008 to 2016, cleaning up the moral squalor left by Ken Livingstone, who
had claimed that Hitler originally supported Zionism; Johnson was the
Foreign Secretary in Theresa May’s cabinet from 2016 to 2018, when he
returned to Parliament as a backbencher.
Not everyone finds Johnson appealing. Some people regard Johnson as
having quite deliberately constructed a public persona as a rumpled,
upper-class twit (educated at Eton and Balliol College, Oxford), which
has allowed him to be consistently underrated by his political enemies,
whom he then manages to run circles around; others think he is a tad
too ambitious. And, of course, he also has his many admirers, whom he
does not disappoint. Whatever the case, he has certainly climbed not
one, but several greasy poles, rather nimbly.
Johnson has not had much to say about Islam, “but what there is is
cherce.” He famously wrote in that he opposed banning veils, including
burkas (he meant “niqabs”), in public. But he added that it was “absolutely ridiculous that people should choose to go around looking like letter boxes.”
