Moron London Mayor Ken "The Red" Livingstone and his pro-suicide bomber cleric-friend

This Marathon Pundit post from yesterday, Banned-in-USA Muslim cleric--and supporter of suicide bombings--headed to Britain in August sums up how London Mayor Ken "The Red" Livingstone feels about his pal Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, whom Ken calls a "leading progressive Muslim," according to Islam

Sheikh al-Qaradawi, who has denounced the 7/7 attacks, still supports Palestinian suicide bombers.

Here that "leading progressive Muslim," as noted in the earlier post, explains he thoughts on these vile assassins:

Last year he told the BBC's Newsnight: "It is not suicide; it is martyrdom in the name of God.

I consider this type of martyrdom operation as an indication of the justice of Allah almighty. Allah is just."Through his infinite wisdom he has given the weak what the strong do not possess and that is the ability to turn their bodies into bombs as the Palestinians do."

But Red Ken still supports this progressive, here he is courtesy of Islam Online:

Livingstone condemned the vile media campaign against Qaradawi ahead of the August conference, saying that his views were distorted and misunderstood, rejecting that they affected the minds of the London bombers.

"What Sheikh Qaradawi pointed out was, given that the Palestinians do not have jet fighters and do not have tanks, they only have their bodies to use. I do not think he is actually urging people to go out and become suicide bombers," Livingstone said, denouncing media for having "pandered to Islamophobia."

Good news, though. According to Islam Online, the progressive sheikh is not feeling well, and probably will not be traveling to England next month for an Islamic conference in Manchester.
