Of course, Red Ken’s friendship with Sheikh Qaradawi suggests that the peaceful subjugation and Islamization of the West, which Qaradawi has predicted, is perfectly fine with him. He just wishes these good people wouldn’t use bombs. From AP, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
LONDON – Terrorists tried to attack London eight times between the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States and last July 7, when suicide bombers killed dozens on the city’s transport system, London’s mayor said Monday.
Ken Livingstone said there had been two attempted attacks since July 7, including a failed attack on the transport network on July 21….
He dismissed suggestions by some government ministers and police chiefs that the city is the target of a “great organized international conspiracy.”
“Largely what you’re talking about is fairly disorganized and small groups of disaffected people,” Livingstone said in an interview on British Broadcasting Corp. radio.
“This not a great organized international conspiracy with orders flowing down the chain.”
No indeed, not a conspiracy as such. Just an immense group of people with identical goals. But that nicety has escaped the Lord Mayor.
CORRECTION: Befuddled Yank that I am, I thought the Mayor of London was the Lord Mayor, but the commenters have corrected me below. I am just gobsmacked to learn that there are two mayors of London, and dead chuffed that there are kind people here willing to set me straight. Thanks to all!
