At an event in New York City called “Building Progressive, Inclusive Cities,” Sadiq Khan, London’s London mayor, met with his counterpart in the Big Apple, far-left Mayor Bill de Blasio, and explained that urban dwellers should simply get used to jihadist rampages.

Terror attacks are “part and parcel of life in a big city,” Khan told the Evening Standard just hours after police foiled multiple terror attacks in New Jersey and New York.

Once hailed as a “progressive” Muslim that would inevitably challenge regressive Islamists, Khan is now echoing an excuse shared by European leaders across the West. After a series of terror attacks in France, the French Prime Minister told his countrymen that France “will have to live with terrorism.” In other words, terrorism is the new normal.

Khan’s surrender to the scourge of jihad comes the same day as the publication of the London mayor’s co-authored New York Times editorial, in which he praises the virtues of immigration alongside Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo and New York City Mayor de Blasio.

“We call on world leaders to adopt a similar welcoming and collaborative spirit on behalf of the refugees all over the world...” write the three leftist big city leaders. “Our cities stand united in the call for inclusivity. It is part of who we are as citizens of diverse and thriving cities.”
