Right-wing candidate blows it by warning of catastrophe and death should London elect a Muslim mayor:


London's new Muslim mayor vows to be leader for everyone
Sadiq Khan has a simple, striking message for Londoners: He won't be merely a Muslim mayor, but a leader for all.

Khan celebrated his landslide election victory Saturday in a multi-denominational ceremony at an Anglican cathedral accompanied by London's police chief, Christian and Jewish leaders, and stars of stage and screen.

They gave Khan a standing ovation as he pledged to be an approachable Everyman for his city of 8.2 million -- including more than a million residents who, like him, happen to be Muslim.

"I'm determined to lead the most transparent, engaged and accessible administration London has ever seen, and to represent every single community and every single part of our city as a mayor for Londoners," said Khan, the son of Pakistani-born immigrants who became a civil rights lawyer and, in 2005, London's first Muslim member of Parliament.

* * *

Leading Muslim activists in the Conservative Party expressed shame and anger over their own candidate Zac Goldsmith's attacks on Khan, saying they had recklessly stoked racism and intolerance. The final round of ballot confirming confirmed early Saturday that Khan received 57 per cent of votes, Goldsmith 43 per cent.

Many criticized Goldsmith's final published appeal in a right-wing Sunday newspaper warning that London stood "on the brink of a catastrophe" if it elected Khan. The article claimed that Khan and Labour considered terrorists their friends and would handicap police efforts to prevent another attack on London, 11 years after 52 Londoners died in suicide blasts on three subway trains and a bus committed by British-born Muslims.

Goldsmith's appeal was accompanied by a picture of the bomb-ravaged bus.

* * *

Leading Conservatives defended their campaign tactics, even as they expressed surprise at losing a post locked down for the past eight years by the eccentrically popular Conservative, Boris Johnson.

Defence Secretary Michael Fallon, who previously accused Khan of sharing a platform with a London imam sympathetic to the Islamic State extremist group, repeated those since-discredited claims Saturday and insisted such charges represented "the rough and tumble of politics."

He also declined, when pressed several times on the matter, to withdraw his campaign claim that London's security would be jeopardized by Khan.

"Stuff gets said during elections," Fallon said.

I miss Boris and his anti-EU sentiments already. He was a real eccentric.

You can now search the Panama Papers, if you are so inclined.

For whatever reason, the proper website to do so is broken: https://offshoreleaks.icij.org

Muslims account for 91% of child rapes in UK

Quote:
Even though they account for only 4% of the UK’s entire population (which is hard to believe it’s that low), they are responsible for 91% of all child rapes in the UK. Not exactly an even distribution of the population to child rapes.
And, half are female. Plus, some are children & seniors, themselves.

So, less than 2% of the population is responsible for 91% of child rapes. And people wonder why I'm concerned about Muslims...

Migrant Rape Epidemic Reaches Austria

Quote:
*A 20-year-old asylum seeker from Iraq confessed to raping a 10-year-old boy at a public swimming pool in Vienna. The Iraqi said the rape was a "sexual emergency" resulting from "excess sexual energy."
*Those who dare to link spiraling crime to Muslim mass migration are being silenced by the guardians of Austrian multiculturalism.
*According to data compiled by the Austrian Interior Ministry, nearly one out of three asylum seekers in Vienna was accused of committing crimes in 2015. North African gangs fighting for control over drug trafficking were responsible for roughly half of the 15,828 violent crimes — rapes, robberies, stabbings and assaults — reported in the city during 2015.
*Austria received 90,000 asylum requests in 2015, the second-highest number in the EU on a per capita basis, but this pales in comparison to what may lie ahead. Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka warned last month that up to one million migrants are poised to cross the Mediterranean from Libya to Europe.

But I thought they all wanted to wear the hijab & weren't being forced?

Iranian models arrested and forced to give public self-criticism for posting pictures without headscarves

Quote:
A leading Iranian model has been forced to give a public self-criticism after being charged with “promoting western promiscuity” for posting pictures of herself online without a headscarf.

Elham Arab, famous for her blonde hair, doll-like looks and wedding dress model shoots, is one of a string of Iranian models caught up in a sting operation code-named “Spider 2”. It is aimed at models and other figures in the fashion industry who have advertised themselves or appeared on Instagram and other social media sites.

Quote:
Amid warnings of a fresh campaign of ISIS terror attacks, Heathrow Airport in London is reportedly considering the implementation of a new security mechanism that is employed at Israel's Ben-Gurion Airport.
And, part of that security is:

Common sense and western Europe have not been on good terms for some time now. I'm not holding my breath.

Why West Africa's Muslim-majority states are banning the burqa

Quote:
A crowded market in the heart of the capital was the chosen target of the first suicide bombing in Chad's history. In a split second, 15 people were killed and 80 maimed.

It soon became clear that a man clad in a burqa had carried out the attack, passing through the checkpoint outside the market by concealing his explosives beneath the all-enveloping canopy.

The government of the West African country responded last July with a measure that elsewhere might have been seen as draconian: it simply banned the burqa.

Anyone seen wearing one would be arrested, promised Kalzeube Pahimi Deubet, the prime minister, and those garments on sale in the market would be burnt. This sudden bonfire of burqas was an essential security precaution designed to prevent terrorists from “camouflaging” themselves, he added.
