Your friends may be registered Democrats, they may be of good standing but do they not display the Trump view of Muslims?
I do hope that you have enlightened your American friends that Sadiq Khan may be a Muslim but is not a terrorist or a supporter of terrorism unlike a lot of Americans ,both politicians, and the general public, who supported the IRA terrorists with both morale-boosting public speeches and , more devastatingly, millions of dollars in cash to buy their semtex and guns.
I am not a Muslim.
Neither am I an apologist for Islam.
I do find the comparison of Sadiq Khan to a Grand Wizard of the KKK more than offensive and totally uncalled for but understandable in coming from a country that can even contemplate and consider Donald Trump as a possible President whilst killing by gun an average of 88 of its citizens every day, ten times as many each year as died by the hands of Muslims in the Twin Towers attack.
No, in my opinion, they do not display the Trump view of Muslims.
None of the three want to bar Muslims from entering the U.S.
The attorney's 19 y.o. daughter, at college in Arizona, is in a relationship with a Muslim student whose family is originally from Mauritius, and the psychologist actively campaigned against Noraid, the organisation that raised money ostensibly to aid 'oppressed' Catholics in Ulster, but in reality probably funded the purchase of guns and Semtex for 'the bhoys' who were harassing the British.
I've since been in contact with all three, and they all said that they were just expressing their surprise that with everything that had gone on over the past few years, Madrid, Sousse in Tunisia, Paris, Brussells, the Russian plane in the Sinai, etc. etc., that London elected a Muslim mayor.
They didn't criticise Mr. Khan, nor his religion, they just didn't think that Londoners would elect a Muslim, and the one who mentioned the KKK, was NOT comparing him to a Ku Klux Klan leader, she meant that to her, Londoners electing a Muslim was as unlikely as Baltimore electing a KKK leader.
