Terrorism expert David Rubin is concerned that a Muslim with connections to a known al Qaeda terrorist could be elected the next mayor of London.
Sadiq Kahn is the Labour Party candidate for mayor of London, one of the world’s most important and influential cities. He is now polling at 44 percent compared to 37 percent for his Conservative Party opponent – but things could change before the May 5 election. (See related article)
David Rubin is the former mayor of the Israeli city of Shiloh and the author of several books about Islamic terrorism. He spoke with OneNewsNow and offered his assessment.
“Quite frankly, I think it’s a bit problematic to have Muslims running for high positions in free countries because Islam doesn’t believe in freedom,” he states bluntly. “It doesn’t believe in freedom of speech; it doesn’t believe in freedom of religion.”
And what makes Kahn’s candidacy even more problematic, according to Rubin, is his friendship with Babar Ahmad, who was very active with al Qaeda.
“I think that we have a very, very serious issue here when we’re talking about Europe that is under attack by this massive Islamic tsunami of so-called ‘refugees’ who are mostly young men who are flooding Europe right now and taking over.”
Rubin admits he can’t understand why a recent poll showed that 55 percent of Londoners are “comfortable” with electing a Muslim mayor with just 31 percent being “uncomfortable” with the idea.
The mayor of London – a position created in 2000 – serves for four years. There are no term limits.
