British Prime Minister David Cameron said the brutal killing of a soldier who was hacked to death in London by two men shouting Jihadist slogans was a betrayal of Islam.
“We will never give in to terror or terrorism in any of its forms,” Cameron told reporters outside his Downing Street residence on Thursday.
“This was not just an attack on Britain and on the British way of life, it was also a betrayal of Islam and of the Muslim communities who give so much to our country. There is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act.”
Britons are still having difficulty coming to terms with Wednesday’s brazen butchering of a soldier on a London street, in the light of day, and especially with the bizarre show the attackers put on for cameras, after the fact.
