After President Barack Obama told other world leaders that violent extremism isn’t limited to any one faith, British Prime Minister David Cameron didn’t disagree — but he did add a pointed clarification.
“Violent extremism is not unique to any one faith, so no one should ever be profiled or targeted simply because of their faith,” Obama said Tuesday as he chaired the U.N. Leaders’ Summit on Countering ISIL and Violent Extremism.
Cameron stressed that violence extremism can only be stopped at the root, which is radicalized Islam.
“Barack, you are quite right, that every religion has its extremists, but we have to be frank that the biggest problem we have today is the Islamist extremist violence that has given birth to ISIL, to Al Shabaab to Al Nusra, Al Qaeda and so many other groups,” Cameron said.
Cameron went on to say that Muslim leaders around the world must speak out against the radical groups.
“These people claim to act in the name of the Islamic religion. They don’t. I can say they don’t over and over again. You can say they don’t, but there is nothing more powerful than, for instance, what the king of Jordan has just said,” Cameron said, referring to earlier remarks by Jordanian King Abdullah.
