British PM Cameron to BBC: ISIS Is 'Not an Islamic State'

By    |   Monday, 29 June 2015 10:04 PM

British Prime Minister David Cameron told BBC Radio 4 the Islamic State (ISIS) is not what its name implies during an interview Monday.

"I wish BBC would stop calling it Islamic State because it's not an Islamic State," Cameron said. "What it is is an appalling, barbarous regime. It is a perversion of the religion of Islam. Many Muslims listening to this program will recoil when they hear the words Islamic State.

"ISIL is better. But it is an existential threat because what's happening here is the perversion of a great religion and a creation of this poisonous death cult."

The Daily Mail posted video of Cameron's remarks:

A gunman killed 30 British tourists on a beach in Tunisia last week, which has Cameron and other British leaders saying the terror group poses a serious threat to the United Kingdom and its citizens.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, although it's not known how much of a role the group played in the massacre that killed a total of 38 people and wounded at least 39.

There were also attacks on citizens in France and Kuwait on Friday, the same day as the Tunisian attack.

Cameron deplored the attacks on Twitter:


Cameron spoke in the House of Commons Monday and said the Royal Air Force could start bombing ISIS positions in Syria, according to The Daily Mail.

"We must confront this evil with everything we have, we must be stronger at standing up for our values and we must be more intolerant of intolerance — taking on anyone whose views condone the extremist narrative," Cameron said.

Cameron said recently he believes some Muslim communities "quietly condone" the extremist ideology that often brews terrorists.
