Cameron says not to give in to terror?


Cameron says not to give in to terror, calls for unity after SE London attack.


"We have lost a brave soldier. 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," the prime minister said in front of No. 10 in Downing Street."This country will be absolutely resolute in its stand against violent extremism and terrorism. We will never give in to terror or terrorism in any of its forms," Cameron said.The Metropolitan Police (MPS) and the Ministry of Defense (MOD) confirmed Thursday that the man killed in Woolwich was a serving soldier. Details of the victim's identify were not published "in line with the wishes of his family."British Defence Secretary Philip Hammond said he was "shocked by the brutality of this cold-blooded murder of a serviceman on the streets of London."The prime minister, meanwhile, said there were strong indications that the attack is a "terrorist incident.""This was not just an attack on Britain, and on our 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," Cameron said.British Islamic communities have expressed condemnation on the Woolwich attack."We need to make sure we don't allow extremists to divide the country. We need to remain calm and measured and get the message out there that we will not allow this to divide us. It was an attack on all of us, on our country, all of us," Julie Siddiqi from Islamic Society of Britain said.However, Britain's Muslim Public Affairs Committee (MPACUK) pointed to a connection between the violent attack and Britain's foreign policy."What is the government likely to do apart from condemning the violence and denying the link between our own foreign policy and domestic acts of violence by some of Britain's Muslims? Nothing whatsoever," the MPACUK said in a statement in response to the incident."Despite the Muslim Public Affairs Committee's efforts, the depressingly predictable and familiar cycle of violence is likely to continue until the government accepts the real link between the two. Only then will any solution be within reach," the MPACUK said.The British soldier was killed by two attackers wielding knives including a meat cleaver near the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich in southeast London on Wednesday afternoon.The attackers were shot by the police arriving on the scene, and have been sent to separate hospitals for treatment, the MPS Commander Simon Letchford said.The police have yet to release more details of the attack. Local media reports quoting government sources and witnesses said the attackers hit the victim with a car and then assaulted him with knives.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
