London’s Muslim mayor signs initiative condemning anti-Semitism
London’s newly elected Muslim mayor is a leader in the global fight against anti-Semitism.
Khan stands alongside Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo and city leaders from Frankfurt, Madrid, Milan and Copenhagen in signing the pledge, the article says. For Khan, the stance underscores how he is using his position to shatter myths about his own faith.
“I am proud to sign the Mayors United Against Anti-Semitism pledge,” Khan wrote in a statement in which he encouraged his counterparts across Europe to do the same. “Sadly, for many Londoners, anti-Semitism is a very present problem. As a British Muslim, I am no stranger to discrimination and prejudice,” Khan added.
