    Here's the original source (which was the LES, not the Indy):

    I'm not sure what is the relevance of that.
    The problem is that many people are traumatized by the terror attacks that have taken place over the past 20 years and more. And since 9/11 are asking themselves whether or not Islam as a whole bears some responsibility for those attacks committed by so-called Islamists.
    Regardless of the answer to that question, people will see this Muslim mayor's comments as possibly showing appeasement towards terrorists. I.e. saying that terrorist attacks are bad, but that we must tolerate them.
    This being an absence of complete war against terrorism (aka NOT tolerating it) will lead some people to think that he does hold some sympathy towards it. And that he being a moderate normal Muslim might be reflecting the views of the wider Muslim community.

    All very "what-if", but when you are dealing with peoples's collective emotions these things can take on importance.

    I've seen quite a lot of people defending them. I hope they were trolls but with people like Mordac I'm less sure.

    I seem to remember quite a lot of gloating when Trump won.

    The relevance would be that what Khan says on that video is what the Trumplet was talking about (whether he knew that or not). You can't really get any more relevant than being the very thing that is under discussion

    Trump Jr. commented the following from the London Mayor:

    "Part and parcel of living in a great global city is you have to be prepared for these sorts of things, you have to be vigilant, you have to support the police doing an incredibly hard job, you have to support the security services," he said."

    But I think we are never vigilant or prepared for the next attack, we just continuing our lives.

    The way it was reacted to suggests otherwise.

    That probably had more to do with the meltdown effect it had on the Grauniad Brigade
