Sadiq Khan is confronted over allowing Islamic flags in his city.
In a heated exchange broadcast on UK’s ITV News, Conservative London Assembly member Andrew Boff confronted London Mayor Sadiq Khan over allowing flags of terrorist organizations to fly in his city.
According to reports, Boff “was asking the mayor for clarification over what constitutes a banned terror organization after Hezbollah flags were seen at a march in the capital earlier this month.” Khan approved an annual Al-Quds march where Islamic terrorist flags were flown and anti-Semitic sentiments were shouted.
Khan, remaining smug and defiant, dodged each question Boff threw at him.
Frustrated, Boff asked again, “Will you, Mr. Mayor, look after the interests of the Jewish population of London and write to the home secretary to ask for the clarification of the rules on what is a banned [terror] organization?”
Again, Mayor Khan wouldn’t answer simply “yes” or “no,” only that he would take it into consideration.
This led to an incredibly tense moment between the two men, as the annoyed mayor asked Boff to “calm down.” The chairwoman tried to maintain order, but Khan continued talking over her.
In another video, below, the mayor is asked again by another assemblyman about his plans on allowing terrorist flags to fly.
“The Hezbollah flag, as you probably know, has a gun — an assault rifle — on the front and it causes great distress and alarm to lots of people,” the assemblyman said.
He then asked the mayor if his position had changed on refusing to classify the whole of Hezbollah, both the military and political wing of the organization, as a terror group like the United States, Israel, France, and the Netherlands do. Despite all of the terror attacks this year by Islamists, the mayor was unwilling to budge. If he did, Hezbollah and other terrorist flags would no longer be allowed to fly the flags on the streets of London.
Again, Mayor Khan gave no direct answer. Watch below:
