When a young man stabbed three people in an east London underground station on Saturday evening yelling, “This is for Syria,” the response of a bystander grabbed the media’s attention afterward. The attack came a few days after the UK parliament approved a motion to join airstrikes against ISIS targets in Syria. The suspect, identified as Muhaydin Mire, 29, appeared in court on Monday with charges of attempted murder. Police are treating the case as a terrorist incident.

The attacker was tasered, straddled and handcuffed by police forces, as an onlooker berated him, “You ain’t no Muslim, Bruv. You ain’t no Muslim!” The Leytonstone tube stop terror attack was recorded and later uploaded to YouTube where people spread it around Twitter and Facebook with the hashtag, #YouAintNoMuslimBruv. The hashtag trended worldwide as an international testament to the fact that Jihadist values do not represent the values of Islam, and that terrorism has no religion.

British Prime Minister David Cameron praised the onlooker for his response and condemned the attacker, saying "Some of us have dedicated speeches and media appearances and soundbites and everything on this subject, but 'You ain't no Muslim, bruv' said it all much better than I ever could," Cameron said. "Thank you, that will be applauded around the country." The response is being globally celebrated as an “especially London” reaction to terror and extremists.
