Don't know that much about him yet.

I'm sure it is leaving a bad taste in at least a few people's mouths. And if left untreated, a nasty case of indigestion could develop.

It shouldn't really matter to folks I don't think, no more than if he was a any other religion...but hey I'm from Dearborn, MI home to the largest population of Muslims in the US, and it certainly wouldn't bother me if I was a Londoner.

Came across this related article earlier today, and thought it interesting.
I'm truly sorry, but I can't keep explaining this simple thing to you over and over again hoping that you'll finally understand something so simple and obvious.

The only thing that I heard, was that some people try to link him to some Muslim extremist groups. Rumor has it that he also supports Sharia law.

Unless these accusations are true, I would give him the benefit of the doubt. Muslim mayors of European cities, can do an excellent job for all his/her citizens (like the mayor of Rotterdam Ahmed Aboutaleb)

Just watched him on the Andrew Marr show. I can see why some people hate him. He's just a guy who is also a Muslim. A terrifying idea for some bigots.
