– 9/11 Bomber
- Sadiq Khan is Labor choice for Mayor of London
- He was ‘legal consultant’ to Zacarias Moussaoui – 9/11 Bomber
- Moussaoui pleaded guilty to conspiracy to murder
- Sadiq Khan also represented hate preacher Louis Farrakhan
- Farrakhan was banned from UK for calling Judaism ‘gutter religion’
- Sadiq Khan ‘shared a platform’ with terrorist Yasser al-Siri
- Al-Sirri called for American soldiers’ corpses to be ‘dragged in the streets’
- Khan could replace American-born Boris Johnson, Conservative, as Mayor of London
London elected a new mayor, and many in the British capital are increasingly worried about the result.
Labor – the UK equivalent of the Democrats- have chosen Sadiq Khan, a left-wing human rights lawyer who has been a member of the House of Commons since 2005.
Khan is in charge of a $23 billion annual budget and have responsibility for policing and transport.
But throughout the campaign, repeated questions have been raised about Khan’s associations with extremists, leaving many wondering whether he is equipped to deal with the ongoing terror threat facing London.
In 2003 British magazine The Lawyer reported that Khan was part of Moussaoui’s defense team.
Khan was not allowed to see Moussaoui and was barred from viewing court papers in the run-up to his trial.
But he acted as a consultant to the self-confessed al-Qaeda agent who was jailed for life in 2006.
It doesn’t end there.
In 2002 Khan represented the hate preacher Louis Farrakhan who, according to the BBC, ‘was [a] man who had described Judaism as “a gutter religion”, characterized Christianity as an oppressive faith linked to the slavery of black people and called Adolf Hitler “great…” .’
Khan tried to overturn a ban on Farrakhan entering the U.K – a ban that had been upheld by successive governments since 1986. Khan told the BBC: “He is preaching a message of self-discipline, self-reliance, atonement and responsibility….It’s outrageous and astonishing that the British Government is trying to exclude this man.”
Khan has also shared a platform at public events with highly dubious figures, including in 2003 when he appeared at the First Captives Conference in London.
There, he spoke alongside Yasser al-Sirri, a known terrorist at the time of the conference who relayed information from Al Qaeda in the West. This included a threat in 2001 by Al Qaeda’s third-in-command Mohammed Atef, that: ‘America will not realize its miscalculations until its soldiers are dragged in Afghanistan like they were in Somalia’
At the time of the conference al-Sirri was under indictment for assisting terrorist Omar Abdel Rahman, the notorious ‘blind sheikh’ behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, to direct the terrorist activities of the Islamic Group from his prison cell. He was found guilty in 2005 of providing material support or resources to terrorists.
Khan has sought to justify these links but for many voters, doubts remain.
It is impossible to imagine a candidate with a similar track record standing in a major US mayoral election being in with a chance of getting anywhere near the levers of power.
In London, in one week’s time, a Khan mayoralty could be a reality.
