The day before the president spoke, a pair of young men armed with butcher knives and a meat cleaver hacked a British soldier to death, attempting to decapitate him. Quoting from the Quran, they remained at the scene to flaunt their horrific handiwork. “We swear by the almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you until you leave us alone,” one of the attackers told an onlooker. “Your people will never be safe.”
Here, for the entire world to see, is the remorseless malevolence that threatens not only the United States or Great Britain, but civilization itself.
