(CNSNews.com) - London Mayor Ken Livingstone's previous support of a Muslim cleric who advocates suicide bombings may cause him some embarrasment as he now must speak for the city in the wake of Thursday's terrorist bombings.
Livingstone condemned the Thursday attacks as "mass murder," and added that "this was not a terrorist attack against the mighty or the powerful, it is not aimed at presidents or prime ministers, it was aimed at ordinary working-class Londoners."
Yet Livingstone has in the past labeled Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi a "man of peace" and a "moderate" despite the fact that Al-Qaradawi has supported suicide bombings and the targeting of American allies.

So, terrorist attacks on presidents, prime ministers, and other people of might and power are justified?
It is unfortuante that the city of London has had to suffer to show him an object lesson in terror.
If I recall correctly, isn't Mayor Livingstone on the far left of the leftist movement?
I could have sworn that he had a nickname like "Red Ken" or something like that.
Yes, he is known as Red Ken.
At least they'd be more political and less cowardly (it ain't easy getting through secret service, body guards, snipers, etc).
Heh heh - that's what I noticed, too. "You stupid mooselimbs ... don't you know this is a CLASS WAR?"
Idiots like hime never learn, in one ear out the other. You could have a 1000 bombings it wouldn`t make any difference. Let`s not forget Frances pledge (by Chirac) to stand by us in the war against terror right after 911 (Germany and Russsia said the same). My, what a difference a few weeks made. This idiot will be right back to supporting the killers guaranteed by the end of this month. Scumbags like this shouldn`t even be in office, never mind anything resembling a position of leadership. Put him charge of a McDonalds he`d be spitting in the hamburgers.
Red Ken is a complete loon - stark raving...
But who knows sometimes a severe shock can have a very beneficial effect.
However, electroshock treatment of Red Ken himself would have been much less bloody than this dastardly deed and probably would have had better chance of long term improvement.
This clown is no Rudy.
Well, no. But it's the "ordinary working-class Londoners" that he's counting on to keep his sorry backside in office.
This guy is way out.
Tomorrow might be different.
Yesterday was DEFINITELY different.
translation polish-english thank you"My2Cents"thank you all
"Listen and listen well all of you; today attack has demonstrated what has been long forgotten by those people who decides what is plus or minus might sound well according to their political ideas; these ideas is poisons and self-destructive = policy of appeasement would not work. All of us are at war; wake up all of you: don't you see where this is going: either people wake up or they will have their enemy in their houses. Neither politician care about you, all they care is their selfish ego; their own goal. Today's world has been replaced by people who have forgotten whom their ancestors fought fore. They have forgotten about God and goodness. Selfish and self absorb they continue to have their hands being boil on innocent blood. Today war has begun, how it will be won is up to those who know where to make check mate."Thank you all be strong good America persons.
Anon, good to read your thoughts on this sad day. While we here in the US often grow weary and discouraged by the delusional thinking of many in Europe, it does our hearts good to see and hear the resolve of others in Europe, like yourself, who understand what we are all up against. We are proud to have you and others as allies in this.
"I am telling you all; wake up. This is not script of events. For politicians everything is a script. Reality of war is not a script. Stand up and go forward and defeat your enemy: this enemy is within your own enemy. Thank you"My2Cents"
And an appropriate follow-up is to shoot the bastards.
