After NYC Explosions: Muslim Mayor of London -- Attacks Are "Part and Parcel of Living in a Great Global City"
According to the UK Evening Standard, London's Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan said after the NYC bombings: "Part and parcel of living in a great global city is you've got to be prepared for these things."
We're all for being prepared. But let's be clear, Mr. Mayor: Surrendering to an inhumane status quo of terror, Islamic or otherwise, is not an option. Not for London, not for New York City, not for anywhere.
No civilzed town or city or shopping mall should ever accept that terror is "part and parcel" of their lives. Such "acceptance" sounds a little too much like "surrender."
Here's a better idea. What Islamic terrorists should know and accept, and what the Muslim mayor of London should know and accept, is that evil can never be mainstreamed as the "new normal."
That evil might be wrapped up in religion, it might be wrapped up in secularism, it might be wrapped up in "tolerance," "equality," and "diversity." It could even be wrapped up in victimhood. No matter. The naked evil underneath it all is to be exposed and defeated for the ugliness and inhumanity for which it stands.
Love of neighbor realizes that part and parcel of being human is asking questions, taking names, and overcoming evil with good. Next time you vote for mayor, London, hire a bloke or blokette who counsels victory, not surrender.
