Not your father’s London

Muslims, both jihadist and wealthy, have taken over.

Which is okay with Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan, whose reckless indifferent and careless approach to terrorism, not to mention his own alleged terrorist connections, are well known.

Safety measures against Muslim terrorists and jihadi threats of violence in London are “intense, pervasive, and depressing,” writes Daniel Pipes in Gatestone.

Many were installed in March 2017 after an Islamic extremist, Khalid Masood, killed five people on Westminster Bridge.

“More than any other major Western city, London bears an Arabic, Middle Eastern, and Islamic impress, from its mayor to its commercial real estate market,” writes Daniel Pipes in Gatestone.

Middle Easterners invested over $4.2 billion in London commercial real estate in 2015, Pipes reports, notably the city’s tallest building, the Shard; the ritzy department store Harrods; the luxury hotel Claridge’s; and the former U.S. embassy building.
