Dhimmi London Mayor insults non-Muslims

... but still gets it half right.

The bad:

"In this city, Muslims are more likely to be law-abiding than non-Muslims and less likely to support the use of violence to achieve political ends than non-Muslims," he told BBC Radio.

He noted that terrorist acts had been carried out in London over the years by various groups including for example far-right groups. For years the British capital was wracked by violence by the Irish Republican Army (IRA).

The good:

But he said criticized the government's ties with Saudi Arabia, saying it remained unclear if Riyadh had stemmed huge amounts of funding which he said flows from the country.

"We have got to understand that when we talk about the Wahhabi strand of Islam, which is very intolerant, our major problem in dealing with it is that it flows out of Saudi Arabia," he said.

He said Wahhabi was the official religion of the Saudi royal family, and noted that Riyadh was one of the main buyers of British arms.

"For a very long time, politicians at national level were refusing to be sufficiently critical of the fact that the Saudi regime didn't clean up its act," he said.

The near-sighted Mayor can see the problem on the next continent but has trouble seeing it in his backyard.

He won't be able to see through the rose-colored glasses when a couple thousand citizens die from an attack. I hope. I wonder, but still hope.

Let me clarify. I don't mean "hope" in that I want an attack. Not by any means! I meant I hope he see's through his rose-colored glasses. Oy vey!

A couple of thousand probably wouldnt do the trick. Look at the morons in this country who care more about prisoners with panties on their head at Abu Ghraib than they do the seurity of this country.
