The brutal terrorist murder of a “brave soldier” on the streets of London will bring the UK together and “make us stronger”, David Cameron declared.
Speaking outside Downing Street after chairing a meeting of the Government’s emergency Cobra committee, the British Prime Minister said the attack “sickens us all” and was a “betrayal of Islam”.
“The people who did this were trying to divide us. They should know something like this will only bring us together and make us stronger,” he said.
“This country will be absolutely resolute in its stand against violent extremism and terror. We will never give in to terror or terrorism in any of its forms.
“This view is shared by every community in our country. 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.”
He said the best response was for everyone to “go about our normal lives”
