Cameron calls on all to fight ISIL

Declaring it "the struggle of our generation," Prime Minister David Cameron called Monday for a wide-ranging effort in Britain to combat the radical ideology that has inspired hundreds of his compatriots to join Islamic militants fighting in Syria and Iraq. Cameron urged universities, prisons, Internet companies and broadcasters to work with the government to "confront and defeat this poison." He said it was important to promote moderate Muslim voices in society and to "de-glamorize" extremist groups such as ISIL that glorify gruesome acts of violence. "This isn't a pioneering movement. It is a vicious, brutal and fundamentally abhorrent existence," Cameron said at a school in Birmingham, Britain's most populous city after London and home to a significant Muslim population.
