Ken Livingstone: I will make London a beacon of Islam
by Andrew Gilligan
Ken Livingstone has promised to turn London into a "beacon" for the words of the Prophet Mohammed in a sermon at one of the capital's most controversial mosques.
Mr Livingstone, Labour's candidate for mayor of London, pledged to "educate the mass of Londoners" in Islam, saying: "That will help to cement our city as a beacon that demonstrates the meaning of the words of the Prophet." Mr Livingstone described Mohammed's words in his last sermon as "an agenda for all humanity."
He praised the Prophet's last sermon, telling his audience: "I want to spend the next four years making sure that every non-Muslim in London knows and understands [its] words and message." He also promised to "make your life a bit easier financially."
