British Prime Minister Theresa May, after the Westminster attack

“The location of this attack was no accident. The terrorists chose to strike at the heart of our  Capital City, where people of all nationalities, religions and cultures come together to celebrate the values of liberty, democracy and freedom of speech.   These streets of Westminster—home to the world’s oldest Parliament—are engrained with a spirit of freedom that echoes in some of the furthest corners of the globe. And the values our Parliament represents—democracy, freedom, human rights, the rule of law—command the admiration and respect of free people everywhere.  That is why it is a target for those who reject those values.  But let me make it clear today, as I have had cause to do before: any attempt to defeat those values through violence and terror is doomed to failure.”
