While Londoners are under siege, London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s primary concern is that no one criticize “diversity” and tries to “divide” Londoners. What he means is that he is not going to allow anyone to examine the belief system that led Usman Khan to murder non-Muslims on the London Bridge. London is suffering an unprecedented wave of not just jihad terror attacks, but rape and knife crimes, and has higher crime rates in general than it has had in recent memory, but London’s far-left Muslim mayor has police looking for “islamophobic hate speech” online instead of tracking jihadis such as Usman Khan and fighting crime on the streets.
“Sadiq Khan After Terror Attack: ‘Our Strength Is Our Diversity,’” by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart, December 1, 2019:
London mayor Sadiq Khan told reporters that diversity is one of the British capital’s strengths in the wake of the London Bridge attack, and that all great cities are targets for terrorists.
“Look, I’m mayor of the greatest city in the world, and one of our strengths is our diversity,” he told reporters shortly the attack by Usman Khan, a convicted radical Islamic terrorist who had been freed from prison on a tag after serving less than half of a 16-year term, which left two dead and three injured.
“But we do know there are people out there who hate out diversity, hate what we stand for, and are trying to seek to divide us”, he added — although his grounds for appearing to suggest that terrorists despise Britain for being diverse were unclear.
Mayor Khan then flirted with controversy with a statement echoing an earlier, infamous former claim of his with respect to terror attacks — i.e. that “part and parcel of living in a great global city is you’ve got to be prepared for these things” — by telling reporters: “Look, I know, speaking to colleagues around the world, mayors of other great cities, that we’re all targets for terrorists.”
Some critics of the Mayor of London have suggested that such attacks only appear to be a feature of life in cities such as London, while in a relatively homogenous place like the Japanese capital of Tokyo they are exceedingly rare — although not entirely unknown….
“[T]he message I want to send… is we are resolute, we stand united in the face of terrorism, and we will not allow anybody to divide us,” he insisted.
