London Mayor Sadiq Khan: We Must ‘Redouble Our Efforts’ to Stop Anti-Semitism

After a series of anti-Semitic attacks in London, including Denial posters covered with swastikas and a brick being thrown through the window of a Jewish home, London’s mayor is having none of it. On Monday, in an event leading up to International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which is observed this Friday, Sadiq Khan called on Londoners to report these crimes “no matter how trivial” in a City Hall ceremony. London’s first Muslim mayor added:”It’s not simply the person who is the victim who is affected… but the ripples of trauma are felt by the entire Jewish community. And we’ve got to understand that psychological trauma. We’re privileged to have among us in London survivors of the Holocaust, who can share their stories that enrich our lives. We must redouble our efforts to make sure nothing like that happens again.”

Khan, 45, has a recent and strong history of standing up for London’s Jewish community. He visited Auschwitz as an MP. Last May, Khan first official act as London’s mayor was to attend a Holocaust Memorial. At Monday’s event, Khan said he had “zero tolerance for hate crimes,” echoing an op-ed he published last June.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
