The Corner

At Last

Some groups traditionally supportive of leftist London mayor Livingstone are at last joining in attempts to call Red Ken (endorsed for re-election, we should remember, by the Economist) on his flirtation with unsavory cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi.

“We feel that we deserve a serious conversation with you about this matter, and a serious response to our concerns before you welcome a man who endorses and provides theological justification for suicide bombings of innocent civilians, the execution of homosexuals under Islamic rule and domestic violence against women under certain circumstances.”

A “serious conversation” seems long overdue.
