London Mayor Sadiq Khan to U.S. Immigrants: Don’t Assimilate
by Raheem Kassam • Sep 16, 2016 Cross-posted from Breitbart – Originally published under the title “London’s Islamist-Linked Mayor Tells U.S. Audience: ‘Immigrants Shouldn’t Assimilate’.” His comments come hot on the heels of the Chicago press exposing his connections to radical Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
The United Kingdom, and especially areas of East London which overwhelmingly voted for Mr. Khan, is currently suffering from Muslim ghettoisation, horrific employment rates for Muslim women, an internal debate surrounding the banning of the burka, and ongoing issues such as female genital mutilation, anti-Semitism, and homophobia within Muslim communities.
Under Mr. Khan’s plans, none of these “cultures and traditions” would need to be dropped for Muslim migrants to Western countries. Mr. Khan has been repeatedly criticised for connections with former Guantanamo Bay detainees, as well as known Muslim extremists in the United Kingdom. His appearances have been widely covered by Britain’s media, but are routinely ignored by the political establishment.
He has also pledged to ban images of women not covered up from advertisements on the London Underground (Tube). Recently, Breitbart London revealed that Mr. Khan appointed an extremism-linked advisor to his City Hall team.
