London’s new Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan, issued an apparent threat on Tuesday warning that presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump’s “ignorant view of Islam” could spur otherwise “moderate” Muslims into aligning themselves with extremists and committing attacks against the United States and the U.K.
“Donald Trump’s ignorant view of Islam could make both of our countries less safe — it risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays into the hands of extremists,” Khan said in a statement, according to The U.K. Telegraph.
“Donald Trump and those around him think that Western liberal values are incompatible with mainstream Islam,” he added. “London has proved him wrong.”
Really? Then why is this Muslim mayor worried that his “moderate” buddies might fly off the handle just because Trump believes the U.S. should impose a moratorium on Islamic immigration? What Western values does that attitude represent, exactly?
Moreover, according to a poll from earlier this year, two in three British Muslims would remain quiet and say nothing to the police were one of their friends or family members to become involved with extremists.

The poll also revealed that half of them believe in making homosexuality illegal, while a bit over 20 percent of them support making Shariah law the law of the land in the U.K.
Do these Muslims sound like they are “compatible” with Western society, Khan? Cat got your tongue?
Khan had a lot of nerve to make these brash statements about Trump, especially given that the Republican presidential candidate reportedly responded to the mayor’s successful election by praising him and even offering to make an exception to allow him to visit the U.S.
Yet instead of responding in kind, London’s new Muslim mayor chose to act like a spoiled and entitled jerk — and thus successfully showcased to the world exactly why so many Americans distrust the Muslim community in the first place.
