James O'Brien: Don't Let The Terrorists Divide Us

The only people who deserve to be punished for atrocities are people who commit atrocities. Don't let them divide us, says James O'Brien.

James O'Brien gave a passionate plea to people who are keen to blame Muslims for the Nice attack: "Don't let the terrorists divide us".

A French-Tunisian man drove a lorry on to the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, ploughing into crowds and killing 84 people.

Similar attacks in the past have led to a surge in anti-Islam feeling across Britain, but James insists there is only one person to blame for this - the man who was driving the truck.

"You can condemn the people who approve or support the committing of atrocities, but you can't actually punish them," says James.

"I know that the massive, massive, massive majority of people who identify as Muslims are just as shocked and disgusted by these acts as I am.

"Imagine what it would feel like today to not only fear for your life, but to fear that you'll get blamed somehow...when a bomb goes off.

"You think that truck driver knew the religion of the people he was ploughing into?"
