With the latest poll indicating both Boris and Ken are virtually neck and neck in the race to be London's Mayor London Muslims and our vote will be absolutely decisive in the final outcome.
It goes without saying that Ken Livingstone is one of the very few politicians who has consistently sided and defended Muslims from the usual right wing Neo Con rabble rousers and the wider anti Muslim brigade amongst the Israelites and pen pushers at London's Evening Standard who have also been all to ready to join the anti Muslim cottage industry.
You can always judge a friend by the enemies he has and Ken has his enemies who are my enemies and every Muslims enemy. LM believes it is the duty of all Muslims in London to begin to start to spread the message that we must be politically literate and organised to ensure the defeat of Boris. It is high time we Muslims used the ultimate weapon of mass destruction the ballot box to ensure any politician who goes against our wider interests and causes will pay the price democratically through their humiliation and defeat at the hands of the Muslim vote.
LM believes we London Muslims have a perfect opportunity to use the mechanism that our fellow Brothers and Sisters are currently dying for in the Middle East ie democracy to establish a sympathetic and caring Mayor at City Hall. Make no mistake LM is not urging people to solely vote Labour as I am way beyond being considered as some kind of block vote that simply votes Labour in order for that party to repay my loyalty with wars against Muslims and the destruction of our civil liberties.
On the contrary, LM urges London Muslims to vote for a man who has all his life fought the bigotry and hatred of racism which is why he so despised by the right wing not just in the Tory Party but also in the Labour Party when they tried to defeat him using a "black" woman Oona King who got a good political kicking by Muslims in Bethnal Green.
This election will be dirty because every vote counts, it is that close and the deciding factor will not be our votes but our turnout. In other words sitting at home saying we are Ken supporters is not enough, making sure we vote and urging all friends and family to do the same will be the crucial difference. In addition joining his campaign is more productive and tangible so come on be the change and make a difference by volunteering or donating. London Muslims you did this city proud by standing firm showing your inherent decency by protecting London from the riots now do us proud again in the spring by helping to defeat Boris on May 2.
