Britain - London Mayor Backs Suicide Bombers

Here is what Livingstone recently had to say about Yusuf al-Qaradawi.

Mr Livingstone also defended Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the controversial cleric who visited London at his invitation last year and who had been scheduled to attend a conference in Manchester next month.

He said Mr al-Qaradawi was a "leading progressive Muslim" who was not actually going to the conference and who had condemned the London attacks.

Asked about Mr al-Qaradawi's apparent support for Palestinian suicide bombers, Mr Livingstone said the cleric's views had been misreported.

Really? Here is what Qaradawi recently said about suicide terrorists.

Sheikh Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi: "Dr. Said Ramadhan [Al-Bouti] stressed the legitimacy of defense, saying it is a legitimate right in Palestine and Iraq. I think that saying it is a legitimate right is not enough, because a right is something that can be relinquished. It is a duty. All scholars say that defending an occupied homeland is an individual duty applying to every Muslim. Reducing this duty to a 'right,' which can be relinquished, is a kind of depreciation.

"We must stress this point, and emphasize that it is the rights of those defending their homeland. It is not only a right, but also their duty. I am amazed by what Dr. Muhammad Rafat 'Othman said.

"This has nothing to do with suicide.

London's mad mayor, Red Ken Livingstone, also spreads the leftist myth that the CIA recruited bin Laden. When in fact bin Laden himself claims he never got help from the US. "Personally neither I nor my brothers saw evidence of American help." - bin Laden in an interview with Robert Fisk.

This goes along with the left's other myth that the US armed Iraq. I love the look on leftist faces when I ask them what sort of equipment Saddam had. Russian MIGs, Russian Tanks, Russian AK47s, French Mirage Fighters, etc. etc. Try it, it's fun. They get all flustered, call you names and walk away.
