The Lord Mayor Of London, Sadiq Khan, told Londoners that terror attacks were “part and parcel” of living in a city like London. Khan’s comment was interpreted as an “acceptance” when it came to fighting against terrorism.
Khan’s weak response to terrorism continued after the Manchester bombing attack.
In response to the revelation that there were at least 400 jihadists living in London, the city’s mayor said, “I can’t follow 400 people,” and then blamed budget cuts as his excuse for not keeping track of them.
After Muslims were targeted in a terror attack in Finsbury Park, suddenly funds aren’t a problem.
The Mayor condemned the “horrific terrorist attack” in which one person was killed and 10 more injured when a van ploughed into Muslims near a north London mosque in the early hours of Monday morning.
According to reports, Khan said that extra police will be deployed to protect Muslim communities observing Ramadan.
Allen B. West reports:
Last September, London’s mayor, Sadiq Khan, said in an interview that “part and parcel of living in a great, global city is you’ve got to be prepared for these things [terror attacks], you’ve got to be vigilant, you’ve got to support the police.” Many interpreted the comments as an admission that Khan was in the “acceptance stage” when it came to combating terrorism.
