Who is David Cameron to tell anybody what to think?

After the horrific terrorist attack in Kenya, the British prime minister turned self-appointed apologist:
'Don't represent Islam'

Mr Cameron condemned the attacks, adding "because the situation is ongoing we should prepare ourselves for further bad news".

"These appalling terrorist attacks that take place where the perpetrators claim they do it in the name of a religion - they don't," he said.

"They do it in the name of terror, violence and extremism and their warped view of the world. They don't represent Islam or Muslims in Britain or anywhere else in the world."
What are the odds he's aware of the repulsive verses in the Koran that prove otherwise, and is too much a coward to say?

James Halling at The Commentator asks:
Hold on David. Since when did you become a scholar of Islam?

We've heard this "they're-not-real-Muslims" line many times since 9/11. But since they claim to be doing what they're doing in the name of Islam; since they're Muslims; and since they're obviously prepared to die for their religion, even as they kill others, it's not clear to me why we should listen to the secular-fudgey-quasi-Christian Prime Minister of Britain rather than them concerning their Islamic identity.
Since Cameron didn't provide any verses from the Koran to prove otherwise, nor did he say why he thinks the most vile are worth defending, I don't think he's worth the effort. His lazy apologia is nothing more than a cure for insomnia.
