A number of Labour MPs have yet to sign EDM 127 including Sadiq Khan from Tooting and Rushanara Ali from Bethnal Green who to be fair did write to the Foreign Secretary condemning Israel's actions. However, for crying out loud we don't have many Muslim MP's but as the only ones from London please sign the EDM which even Jim Fitzpatrick and Khalid Mahmood have.
London Muslim wrote about Sadiq urging Muslims to vote Labour saying they were the only party we could "Trust". Well Sadiq, one way of ensuring you can win back the trust of Muslims is showing you side with them not just at election time but also during periods when Muslims and Non Muslims are slaughtered on the Gaza Aid flotilla for simply trying to deliver humanitarian aid. Not much to ask really is it?
A number of other Labour MPs with large Muslim constituencies in London who have yet to sign are Lyn Browne, Stella Creasy, Stephen Timms and our old Israelite mate Mike Gapes to name but a few. Interestingly, Lib Dem Sarah Teather has not signed despite a huge Muslim vote that got her re-elected in Brent although I assume as a front bencher she is bound by the usual Govt payroll restrictions on signing EDM's.
