UK: Labour’s mayoral hopeful linked to ‘online bin Laden’

Labour’s candidate for London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, has faced criticism, after it emerged that Labour’s candidate had shared a platform with a group backed by an extremist imam who was as an al-Qaeda recruiter.

A former aide to Theresa May has claimed that Mr Khan made an error of “judgment” by going to four meetings organised by the Stop Political Terror, a group supported by the radical American imam killed in a US airstrike in Yemen, Anwar al-Awlaki. Awlaki was dubbed the ‘online bin Laden’ for his online prowess, distributing Jihadi propaganda on the web as well as recruiting followers.

    Subjectively, political terror is also the absence of implementation of Sharia worldwide in its fullest barbarian splendor.

    “Sadiq Khan, has faced criticism,…”
    “Faced criticism. Not “been denounced, vilified and declared unfit for office” (like say, the Donald), no, he’s faced criticism. Which will soon go away.
