Here is London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s statement on the recent Islamic terror attacks:
Just like terrorists are constantly evolving and finding new ways to disrupt us, harm us, attack us, the police and experts and all of us are finding new ways to keep us safe. Londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days. No reason to be alarmed.
President Trump took major issue with the final sentence of Khan’s statement:
“No reason to be alarmed”? Mr. Khan, tell that to the families of the victims who thought they had no reason to be alarmed after the Manchester terror attack. They probably couldn’t have fathomed their loved ones ever getting stabbed or run over on London Bridge.
Our society’s response to yet another terrifying attack is more of the same. More virtue signalling, more Facebook profile picture changes, etc. Sad but predictable. No wonder some are starting to doubt that Europe will ever wake up.
