Britain's Muslim Community Outraged by Woolwich Attack

In an interview with The Telegraph, Julie Siddiqi of the Islamic Society of Britain voices the disgust of the British Muslim Community being felt toward yesterday's terrorist attack in Woolwich outside of the Royal Barracks. The brutal beheading of the British soldier has left the community "sickened", "just like everybody else" she notes. She also points out that the two men responsible for the killing did not represent the principles of Islam when they chose to move forward with this attack and that she is "determined to make sure people know that this is not what our faith teaches." "There is no place for this," she says in the interview. "It does not matter what is happening in other countries on the other side of the world, there is no justification for this whatsoever." Two attackers ran over a solider yesterday in the street in front of the Royal Barracks in Woolwich, and then proceeded to behead the solider with a meat cleaver and stab him with knives. One attacker gave a gruesome interview to an amateur videographer that shocked the world; his hands were still bloodied from the attack. Both attackers are being treated in the hospital after being shot by police, and security in the area has been increased.
