For well over a year now, London has been hit with a number of terror incidents, including three major attacks in the last three months. According to Premier Theresa May, five credible terror plots have been foiled during the same period. In many cases, these incidents appear to have been minimized by both authorities and the media.
During his time as mayor, London has seen an increase in terror incidents while curiously most of the people banned from Britain, include “white nationalists” such as US radio personality Michael Savage, blogger Don Black and Dutch politician Geert Wilders as well as American celebrity cook Martha Stewart after it was revealed in 2008, that she had been lying to stock market investigators.
Rather than focusing on combatting terror, Khan has urged Londoners as well as citizens in other parts of Europe and the United States to learn to live with terrorism as a part of daily life.
In September 2016, Khan stated in the wake of the New York and New Jersey bombings, that the threat of terror attacks are simply “part and parcel of living in a big city”.
He lambasted Scottish nationalists for promoting “racism”, but was silent when huge crowds of Islamists gathered in London in December 2016 for a week of protests calling for the establishment of a global Caliphate. Protestors at the event openly waved flags in support of the Taliban.
According to the mayor, Trump that should not be allowed to come to London until he revoked his proposed ban on travelers to the US from six Muslim countries.
During his time as legal council, Sadiq Khan served as the Chief Legal Advisor to the Muslim Council of Britain’s legal affairs committee. In 2003, Khan protested what he described as “indiscriminate” arrests of Muslims for alleged terror ties. In 2004, Khan spoke at an event which included Ibrahim Hewitt; Hewitt is on record defending stoning as a punishment for adultery.
In 2009, Khan was part of an international campaign protesting extraditions of Taliban and Chechen jihadists to the United States.
During the 1990’s, Khan’s brother in law Makbool Javaid had called for jihad as a member of the Islamic group Al-Muhajiroun. The group has been acting as a sponsor and recruiter of British jihadists seeking to join ISIS.
Al-Muhajiroun was also lead by Anjem Choudary, a British Islamist who was jailed in 2016 for supporting the Islamic State after he released instructions on making bombs and establishing “Muslim gangs” for the purpose of committing terror attacks and is closely linked to organised crime.
While Khan has tried to distance himself from his brother in law and Al-Muhajiroun, in 2003 he shared a stage with Sajeel Abu Ibrahim, another member of Al-Muhajiroun and convicted terrorist who had trained Taliban militants.
He claims that his frequent association with various individuals and groups tied to jihad and terrorism was a result of his work as a human rights lawyer. But as The Daily Beast noted, Khan attended the majority of these events not in his capacity as a lawyer.
On October 6th, 2016: News World India reported that police in Karachi, Pakistan had recovered the largest ever cache of NATO weapons in the hands of Islamic jihadists in the city’s history. Karachi’s police chief stated that the weapons were scheduled to be shipped to militant groups in London for a major operation they were planning. How the militants were able to acquire the massive supply of NATO arms is unclear.
