(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.
That London mayor is one of the numerous low life scum who stand in the way of victory over terrorism. As long as our society allows him to do so, he will. Think on it.
He should do the right thing and commit Seppuku. I'm sure he has a great many friends who would have experience enough to perform the final act.
"Thank you all be strong good America persons."
Many in this land as yours, know full well that freedom does not come without a price. All Americans that have a little idea as to how serious the war on terror is, thank your government, people, and your military for serving with honor in Iraq side by side with the other coalition forces to make a difference. Many Americans that do not have their heads up their asses, shall remember Poland sided with the right side, and did the right thing. Thank you.
"And an appropriate follow-up is to shoot the bastards."
It is quite that simple.
'"Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi a "man of peace" and a "moderate"'
It is so transparent. Problem is they continue to see the western world (stupid in their eyes), buy the horse crap, pile, dung cart, and smell, and just nod their heads, ok.
Talking about nuking a few dozen countries under Muslim control is at best absurd, have brained. But surely the western nations and any mid-east country that wants to put a stop to this crap must really start getting brutal with these pockets of scum. You round them up, regardless of any sustainable charge against them, and retain them in well guarded prisons for a very very long time. If twenty or thirty thousand scum bags where put away in this manner and all the governments told the world L/MSM to go fly a kite, things would change in a few years.
Also in November 2003, Livingstone was named 'Politician of the Year' by the Political Studies Association, which cited his implementation of the 'bold and imaginative' congestion charge scheme. The honour came a week after Livingstone made the headlines for referring to George W. Bush as 'the greatest threat to life on this planet,' just ahead of the President's official visit to the UK. Livingstone also organised an alternative 'Peace Reception' at City Hall 'for everybody who is not George Bush,' with anti-war Vietnam veteran Ron Kovic as the guest of honour.
One usually ends up reaping what one sows sooner or later.
I wouldn't shed too many tears if the terrorists had targeted the mighty and powerful Major of London...
Neither could discern the murdering psychotic that they attempted to appease.
i wonder if these Islamic Fascits are going to be pissed when they find there aren't 72 virgins waiting for them when they arrive in hell.They'll have no one to complain to about the Koran either. There is a God
We will prevail!
Reading a blog of a reporter that was just sent to me via freepmail, and most of the people interviewed think that the Brits deserved what they got. I fear for the world some days. So many people have lost their moral compass, or, as you said, are self absorbed.
"So many people have lost their moral compass, or, as you said, are self absorbed."translation polish-english
"They are so far off. How sad is human who denies a true and proclaim to stand by it. Such a ingratitude; so much pain and self hate. Through their own selfishness do they accumulate points in hell? Self absorbing; selfish in own thinking of holding world in their own hands they are fast on self-destruction; like all demonic entity they want all to go with them into abyss. By God you shall be safe and you should know wisdom of goodness and perversion. These people will meet their master; how many would have to parish before people realize how to kill monster of deceit?"
Being a former liberal myself, I think I understand Livingstone. And through the eyes of liberals, he's in trouble with them too.
He's not saying that attacking a Prime Minister is OK. What he's saying is that attacking Joe Shmoe on the street is particularly sick. The Prime Minister deploys troops, making him essentially a military target, at least in liberal-think.
Certain wealthy businessmen who support the Prime Minister are also the equivilent of volunteer soldiers.
Those targets would be slightly 'less dishonorable', while you can bet that Livingstone would condemn attacks on them as well. That's liberal-think.
But even a liberal would feel sick knowing that Livingstone was an apologist for anyone who called for this kind of attack:
"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."
Livingstone must announce that he's seen the light now. On the other hand, if London is as stupid as most NY voters, then it won't matter much.
Thank you Sara ~ good stuff!
These people are morally equivalent to the terrorists. Yet another example that leftist thinking is a disease.
It is past time for London to elect a new mayor and not one, who loves the mass murdering Jihadists:

So Mayor of London Livingstone says President Bush is the "greatest threat to life on the planet", huh?
Is it any wonder who puts these ridiculous ideas in his head?
Well, socialist mayors...
Thank you good friend"Chgogal"please read all persons translation
"When will you wake up? Don't you see, are you too blind politicians with innocent blood on your hands. Will you hide behind your arrogant self portrait of who you really are? What have you done in your life to make you masters of these people to dictate how's life should be? Blind you are all for not see your enemy within you. This is war not a picnic; lunch; dinner. History doesn't teach you anything, like blind and death you walk and spin your poison vermin towards those who understand what is at stake. Soon it will come to past when you will be on a street naked from your wealth and nobody will help you; for you have forsaken dignity and respect to those given to you. Understand there is only one way - either you fight or you perish. Loosing is not on option. Your country was attacked, London was attacked and you decide to debate if its politically well to say these are terrorist or murders. You are so blind, your blindness will lead millions to destructions; like in 1930's millions chose tyrant. Evil is in front of you and you don't want to comprehend what awaits you if you will follow your blindness."thank you all be strong America good persons!!!!!
"We will prevail!"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!translation
"Do not underestimate us poles. We are good at heart and strong in heart. We will deal with any attack in our own way. We are not afraid; if it comes; we'll respond as we wish."thank you all/Dzieki wam
