Sadiq Khan, who publicly clashed with the President of the United States following the London Bridge terrorist attack, said the US President should not be afforded an elaborate visit.
“State visits are different from a normal visit, and at a time when the president of the USA has policies that many in our country disagree with, I am not sure it is appropriate for our government to roll out the red carpet,” Khan told CNN. Apparently Sadiq Khan believes he speaks for the entire Country.
“If someone has views that I think can be changed, I am ready to play my role.
“If you somehow think it is not possible to be a Muslim and a proud Westerner, I am happy to disabuse you of that idea, whether you are a reporter for CNN or Donald Trump,” he added.
Last week, the White House confirmed Trump’s state visit to the UK has been delayed until 2018.
Prime Minister Theresa May officially invited Trump in January. That sparked a backlash which saw nearly 2 million people sign an online petition seeking to block Trump’s trip over fears that it would “cause embarrassment to Her Majesty the Queen.”
Sadiq Khan has a horrible record in London, the city has become a danger zone for acid attacks and stabbings.
The UK has had an open door policy on refugees and “tolerance” policy towards Islamic extremist groups, now the city looks like a warzone.
Imam’s and their followers around the country have called for Sharia Law and offered support to terrorist groups.
The ongoing activities of advocacy group Cage highlight the problem of militant groups hiding extremist ideals behind the face of Anti-Racism and Political Correctness.
The small campaign group gained worldwide attention after it emerged Briton Mohammed Emwazi, unmasked later as “Jihadi John”, took his claims of harassment by the British authorities first to Cage. The then research director of CAGE Asim Qureshi said Emwazi had been a “beautiful young man”.
Mohammed Emwazi was a British Arab, the person seen in several videos produced by the Islamic extremist group ISIL showing the beheadings of a number of captives in 2014 and 2015. A group of his hostages nicknamed him “John” since he was part of a four-person terrorist cell with English accents whom they called “The Beatles”; the press later began calling him “Jihadi John”.
CAGE tried to shift the blame for Jihadi John to, of course non-muslims, saying Since 2001, the British authorities have systematically shifted the spotlight away from its foreign policy and its security agencies by placing blame for violence at home and abroad solely on Muslims. Mohammed Emwazi was, in fact, a Muslim.
