Is It Worse to Be a “Global Threat” with Fascist Links or a “Stone Cold Loser”?
Saturday, June 15, 2019
Jihad Watch : When Donald Trump described London Mayor Sadiq Khan as a “stone cold
loser,” this was dutifully reported as an unprovoked attack by our
unhinged president. What the mainstream media often failed to mention
was that Sadiq Khan and Donald Trump have a history of exchanging
insults, and that the current exchange was begun by Sadiq Khan.
Khan has not always been accurate in his charges. Just before Trump’s first state visit to the U.K., Sadiq Khan
published in The Observer on June 2 an article in which he described
Trump as “one of the most egregious examples of a growing global
threat.” He added that Trump’s “divisive behavior flies in the face of
the ideals America was founded upon — equality, liberty and religious
How does Trump’s ‘“divisive behavior” fly in the face of these
ideas? When has Trump threatened either “equally” or “liberty” in
America? We know that Sadiq Khan is thinking of Muslims in the U.S., and
perhaps believes the CAIR-promoted tales of victimhood, but Trump, who
is rightly worried about Muslim terrorism, has not in any way restricted
the “religious freedom” of Muslims.
Perhaps Sadiq Khan would care to
supply us with a single example of how his behavior “flies in the face
of religious freedom”? Did Trump shut down a single mosque, censor a
single verse in the Qur’an, prevent the observance of Ramadan or of
Friday Prayers? He hasn’t done a single thing, not one jot or tittle, to
restrict Muslims in the free exercise of their religion. Sadiq Khan
should know this. But in his haste to score points against Trump, he did
not bother to inform himself properly. He deplored the so-called
“Muslim ban” thus:
“I think this ban on people from seven
Muslim-majority countries” is cruel and shameful. Khan had simply
assumed they were all Muslim-majority countries, when two of the seven,
Venezuela and North Korea, were non-Muslim. One minute of Internet
searching was all he needed to discover the truth.
