Ken has thrown his hat into the ring again. He was a whole new animal in British politics, and proved himself an effective urban administrator, with a strong egalistarian influence on the capital. Free Sunday public transport was one of his first measures.

The danger is that, if leading figures like Ken Livingstone continue to claim that Yusuf al-Qaradawi is a ‘moderate’, they will feed the EDL/BNP narrative that there is no such thing as a moderate Muslim. For many British people, particularly those living outside the larger cities, their only knowledge of Muslims and Islam comes from the media. If they see a Muslim figure who supports FGM, punishing homosexuality and wife-beating being lauded as a “progressive”, then some may well ask ‘How regressive are the views of other Muslims?’.


Livingstones buddy on Adolf:-

Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the [Jews] people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Hitler. By means of all the things he did to them – even though they exaggerated this issue – he managed to put them in their place. This was divine punishment for them. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hand of the believers.[51]

Kens best friend on suicide bombing:-


Qaradawi has condemned attacks on all civilians except within Israel.[52] He supports suicide attacks on all Israelis, including women and children[53][54] since he views the Israeli society as a "completely military" society that did not include any civilians.[55] He also considers pregnant women and their unborn babies to be valid targets on the ground that the babies could grow up to join the Israeli Army.[56]

Kens religious advisor on female genital mutilation:-

Female Circumcision


While stating that female circumcision (FGM) is "not required" in his book, Modern Fatwas", he adds: "whoever finds it serving the interest of his daughters should do it, and I personally support this under the current circumstances in the modern world."[68][69]


Kens a progressive, ie. he's an Islington product. A tool.
