After 2 Major Terror Attacks in Less Than a Month, Muslim Mayor Makes Sick Declaration
Denial isn’t just a river in Egypt … at least for the Muslim mayor of London.
Despite two bloody terrorist attacks in England’s capitol city just months apart, Mayor Sadiq Khan has made a strange statement: Don’t worry, London is a safe city.
Khan just declared that the largest city in the UK might even be the “safest” city on the planet — but the facts aren’t on his side.
“I’m reassured that we are one of the safest global cities in the world if not the safest global cities in the world,” the mayor announced, according to Sky News reporter Sophy Ridge.

There’s just one problem: Even if the recent Islamic terrorist attacks are ignored, London isn’t even close to being the safest city.
A comprehensive study of the world’s safest large cities compiled by The Economist and England’s own BBC News did not include London anywhere in the top ten ranking.
It’s not the first time that the mayor has shown that he’s out of touch with reality. President Donald Trump recently criticized Khan for appearing to downplay the deadly Islamic truck and knife attack in London.
“At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed,'” stated the president.

Other observers also called out the Muslim mayor for seeming to sweep the impact of Islamic terrorism under the rug.
In addition to that recent incident, London was also the location of an Islamic terrorist attack in March. A man named Khalid Masood drove a car into pedestrians on the Westminster Bridge, killing four and injuring over 50 people. The attacker also stabbed a police officer before being shot.
While not in London, an Islamic-linked bombing attack at a concert in Manchester also stunned Britain and the world.
A major part of addressing a problem is being honest. Leaders such as London’s mayor must acknowledge that the problems exists, and speak frankly about the true cause.
Until apologists like Khan remove their heads from the sand, however, it’s unfortunately only a matter of time before another deadly incident occurs.
