Prime Minister of the United Kingdom David Cameron reacted to ISIS beheading British hostage David Haines calling ISIS “monsters” not “Muslims” and vowing to “degrade and ultimately destroy” ISIS with an “iron determination.”
Cameron said, “They boast of their brutality; they claim to do this in the name of Islam. That is nonsense. Islam is a religion of peace. They are not Muslims, they are monsters.”
“They have planned and continue to plan attacks across Europe and in our country. We are a peaceful people. We do not seek out confrontation, but we need to understand we cannot ignore this threat to our security and that of our allies. There is no option of keeping our heads down that would make us safe. the problem would get worse as it has over recent months, not just for us but for Europe and for the world.”
“We cannot just walk on by if we’re to keep this country safe. We have to confront this menace. step-by-step, we must drive back, dismantle and ultimately destroy ISIS and what it stands for,” he added.
