Last quote about Extremism

Sophie Richardson - Human Rights Watch
This is just the latest in a slew of new regulations restricting religious freedom in the name of countering 'religious extremism'. These policies are blatant violations of domestic and international protections on the rights to freedom of belief and expression. If the government is serious about bringing stability and harmony to the region as it claims, it should roll back - not double down on - repressive policies. This is the latest absurd restriction that the Chinese government has imposed on people in Xinjiang.feedback

All quotes about Extremism

Marc Ginsberg

[The Russians] have heard all these arguments before from the Americans. And they don't think that Mr. Tillerson has much behind him to show that he can compel the Russians to do anything. Even though Assad ultimately may be expendable, Russia has an enormous strategic stake in the Assad regime. The United States has no real stake in the future of Syria, provided that we're able to eliminate the threat of extremism that is ISIS as well as the remnants of a resurgent Al-Qaeda inside Syria. If the Russians have doubled down to support Assad, the Iranians have tripled down.feedback

Ralf Jaeger

We are investigating in every direction ... the background is completely open and is in the dark. It could be left-wing extremism or right-wing extremism. It could be the violent fan scene, it could be Islamic extremism.feedback

Abdel Fattah el-Sisi

Today, a decision was taken to form a higher committee for combating terrorism and extremism in Egypt. It will be formed by a law, allowing this committee to take control of the whole situation.feedback

Magnus Ranstorp

I'm sure he'll use the issue. There's no denying we have issues and problems, but it needs to be put in proportion. It is a general problem that they need to sort out logistically. But it's unhelpful to conflate the two. Extremism is relatively risk-free in Sweden because there is no judicial punishment. There is very short sentencing. And in terms of prevention, the returnees that come back are only sought up by security services.feedback

Hassan Rouhani

The tragedy of Khan Sheikhoun is horrifying and must be condemned. It reminds Iranians, victim of chemical weapons for years, the attacks in Sardasht. US aggression against Shayrat strengthens regional extremism and terror, and global lawlessness and instability, and must be condemned. I call on the world to reject such policies, which bring only destruction and danger to the region and the globe.feedback

Hassan Abu Haniyeh

The Taliban, Ansar al-Sharia, ISIS and other movements don't need to prove if they have a good way of ruling.feedback

Monther Altiti

I told him, how do you feel when you're climbing or hiking? You think of nothing, right? Next time you're angry, go outside, close your eyes, breathe and count to 10. Amazing that he's doing it.feedback

Jane MacPhail

You detach. You become more impulsive, and you rationalize actions against your values in order to fill your need for belonging. We work on reattaching young people's hearts and heads.feedback

Abdallah Hijazi

People are scared of these guys on the streets. They're lost, like any Jordanian guy. They need a place to feel safe being themselves.feedback

Hunter Keith - Mercy Corps

The pitch that ISIS gives to young, Arab, Muslim males is one they hear from no one else: You belong here. You, specifically, are our greatest strength.feedback

Hassan Abu Haniyeh

Most Arab people want an Islamic state to take control. They dream of this utopia of dignity, justice and righteousness.feedback

Nikki Haley

The number one priority is defeating terrorism. But we want to stay true to our values. I don't think the administration is backing away from human rights, because they are supporting me speaking about it. It really is intended to do, respectfully – what do we need to watch for? What are the issues that lead to conflict? How do we allow extremism to come in because of the vulnerabilities of the human rights conflicts? And so we think that's incredibly important. America has always been the country that has prided itself on valuing all lives, and that's not going to change.feedback

Michele Dunne

Sissi's brutal repression has made Egypt a mass-production facility for violent extremism. Sissi supports the regime of Assad … and has offered unqualified endorsement of Russia's increasing military presence throughout the Middle East. … His state-manipulated media is filled with anti-Western diatribes, and Americans working in Egypt, and Egyptians who work with Western organizations, have faced trumped-up charges under increasingly harsh laws criminalizing not only funding but even contacts between Egyptians and foreigners.feedback

James Blessing

This may be just a way to impress on industry that the government means business here.feedback

Bill O'Reilly

Although many Americans disagree with her extremism at times, she deserves a hearing and she should not be marginalized by political opponents. In fact, I made that mistake this morning on 'Fox and Friends.' I said in a simple jest that the congressman's hair distracted me. Well, that was stupid. I apologize. That is not patriotism, madam. That is demagoguery.feedback

Muriel Domenach

The best counter-narrative is military victory, to start with. With military victory, Daesh would lose a lot of its dark allure. I'm not a strong believer in de-radicalization. I'm not a strong believer in deprogramming someone. I don't think that such a thing as creating a new man or a new woman ever worked. I don't think you make someone come back to the way they were.feedback

Mohammed Momani

The absence of justice for the Palestinian people is a major and fundamental reason for the instability of the region and creates an environment for extremism and terrorism.feedback

Theresa May

I can confirm police have searched six addresses and made eight arrests in Birmingham and London. It is still believed this attacker acted alone and police have no reason to believe there are imminent further attacks on the public. His identity is known to the police and MI5. When operational considerations allow he will be publicly identified. What I can confirm is the man was British born and that some years ago he was once investigated by MI5 in relation to concerns about violent extremism. He was a peripheral figure. The case is historic. He is not part of the current intelligence picture.feedback

Theresa May

It is still believed that this attacker acted alone, and the police have no reason to believe there are imminent further attacks on the public. What I can confirm is that some years ago - he was once investigated in relation to concerns about violent extremism. He was a peripheral figure. The case is historic - he was not part of the current intelligence picture. There was no prior intelligence of his intent - or of the plot. Intensive investigations continue. Our working assumption is that the attacker was inspired by Islamist ideology.feedback

Khalid Masood

The government and security services are doing everything they can and it is clear that social media companies can and must do more.feedback

Boris Johnson

I do think the responsibility for this most lies with the internet providers, with those that are responsible for great social media companies. They have got to look at the stuff that is going up on their sites. They have got to take steps to invigilate it and to take it down where they can.feedback

Theresa May

The man was British-born and –some years ago–he was once investigated in relation to concerns about violent extremism. He was a peripheral figure. The case is historic- he was not part of the current intelligent picture. There was no prior intelligence of his intent–or of the plot. Intensive investigations continue.feedback

Theresa May

It is believed this attacker acted alone. The man was British-born and had been investigated by MI5 over extremism fears.feedback

Mohammed Kozbar

The killing of innocent victims should be condemned by everyone. We must stand together against those people who would use this incident to spread extremist views and also those who would spread fear and hate within our society. Hopefully, this will unite us against all kinds of extremism, hate and racism.feedback

Theresa May

In addition to two Britons admitted to hospital, we know the victims include three French children, two Romanian, four South Koreans, one German, one Polish, one Irish, one Chinese, one Italian, one American and two Greeks. What I can confirm is that the man was British-born and that some years ago he was once investigated by MI5 in relation to concerns about violent extremism. He was a peripheral figure. The case is historic. He was not part of the current intelligence picture. There was no prior intelligence of his intent or of the plot.feedback

Ted Cantle

We know that contact between groups improves tolerance and breaks down prejudice – and will even contribute to tackling extremism. But we appear to be going in the opposite direction. We cannot do very much about residential segregation – people cannot be moved from one area to another. So schools are our best chance for integration. But instead, schools appear to be compounding the problem and slowly dismantling the bridges.feedback

Gordon Brown

The patriotic way means that Scotland is not caught between a die-hard conservatism that denies the Scottish Parliament the powers it needs and a hard-line nationalism that throws away the resources we secure from being part of the union. Most of all, a new third option can unify our country and end the bitter and divisive yes-versus-no conflict that will continue to rip us apart. It is time to transcend the bitter division and extremism of an inflexible, die-hard conservatism at war with an intransigent and even more hardline nationalism.feedback

Gordon Brown

Tory and nationalist extremism should not rob us of a third option that can give the Scottish people more powers, offer honest answers about how we can pay for our public services and, faced with the post-Brexit threat to our employment and industry, address the urgent issue of how we create new jobs by exporting and trading successfully with Europe and the rest of the world. Most of all, a new third option can unify our country and end the bitter and divisive yes-versus-no conflict that will continue to rip us apart.feedback

Michael Sapin

Voters from the left, right and center will know to react with one concern – put Mrs. Le Pen on the side, reassure what France is, its principles but also reassure from an economic, financial, budgetary, European point of view. Reassure on the future of the euro, reassure on all these points and we will have the opportunity to do so. We need to show to the rest of the world that the extreme right, extreme right-wing nationalism, extremism, including xenophobic extremism is not France and we should all unite to put them aside.feedback

Francois Hollande

"The values of openness, respect for others and a faith in Europe's future are the only true response to the nationalist impulses and isolationism that are shaking the world,"feedback

François Fillon

We were all being told this was going to be a triumph for the extreme right. And yet again the outcome shows that it's the (political) center and right that provide the best bulwark against populism and extremism.feedback

Christopher S. Murphy

A progressive foreign policy isn't just looking at the back-end of terrorism, but is also looking at the front-end of terrorism. And at the front-end of terrorism is bad U.S. military policy in the Middle East, is the Saudi funding of a very intolerant brand of Islam that becomes the building block of extremism, and poverty and political instability. I appreciate a president who is willing to ask some big questions about the prior rules of the game when it came to how the United States funds or directs foreign policy.feedback

Mark Rutte

The Netherlands said 'Whoa! Stop!' to the wrong kind of populism. We want to stick to the course we have - safe and stable and prosperous. It is the third elections after Brexit, after the American elections. We have the upcoming French and German elections. And this is a chance for a big democracy like the Netherlands to make a point - to stop this toppling over of the domino stones of the wrong sort of populism.feedback

Yvette Cooper

We all use social media all the time – it does wonderful things, but it can also be used to poison and destroy people's lives. These are incredibly powerful organisations. They are able to analyse algorithms and behaviour in a sophisticated way in order to target potential consumers with adverts. It's time they used more of that power, money and technology to deal with hate crime.feedback

Gijs De Vries

Wilders' competitors compete with him by embracing some of his ideas without the extremism Wilders purports. At local level most people get along with their neighbours. Muslims, Christians, non-believers or Buddhists. But I think there are many genuine concerns from people who feel their neighbourhoods are no longer the environment they knew when they grew up as children.feedback

Li Jianhua

What the Islamic State and extremists push is jihad, terror, violence. This is why we see Trump targeting Muslims in a travel ban. It doesn't matter whether anti-Muslim policy is in the interests of the U.S. or it promotes stability, it's about preventing religious extremism from seeping into all of American culture.feedback

Wu Shimin

The roots of the Hui are in China. To discuss religious consciousness, we must first discuss Chinese consciousness. To discuss the feelings of minorities, we must first discuss the feelings of the Chinese people.feedback

Hannah Stuart

As we continue to improve our policing of Islamism-inspired terrorism – the prevalent national security threat of our age – we should be aware that the vast majority of UK-based terrorists do not act alone. This research shows that the overwhelming majority are part of wider networks, formed online and in person, with family and friends – and most have been radicalised here in the UK.feedback

Hannah Stuart

This report poses some particular challenges for the authorities. While it confirms widely held conceptions, such as the majority of UK terror offenders are young males, it also highlights new threats that have developed since the millennium. Our security services will be particularly concerned that the major threat continues to be home-grown – and that females are playing an ever-increasing role in terrorism. Such a high concentration of offenders in London and Birmingham will also focus the minds of policymakers when it comes to deciding where to target our counter-terrorism efforts.feedback

Nava Nuraniyah

On the other hand, though, Salafi ulama [scholars] in Indonesia are among the most vocal opponents of extremism.feedback

Nava Nuraniyah

We've been seeing some evidence of the transition from Salafism to extremism among female extremists of the ISIS generation.feedback

Jesus Dureza

We grieve as we strongly condemn the barbaric beheading of yet another kidnap victim. ...Terrorism has no place in a country like ours and we as a people must confront violent extremism every time it rears its ugly head. There must be a stop to this killing of the innocent and the helpless.feedback

Erna Solberg

That means they will distrust institutions, politicians, and maybe that is a bit of the aim ? to get people confused and increase the distrust.feedback

Erna Solberg

We are using one percent of our gross (domestic) product on development aid and conflict prevention, trying to solve problems around the world that lead to conflict and lead to the need for more military expenditure. There I think the Americans could follow a little bit better on. His basic view is to be against something -- Western values and Western ideas. It is a challenge. If you can't believe what's in the media, if you can't believe what you're reading, then there will be a lot of people who have distrust for everything.feedback

Erna Solberg

Creating jobs and job opportunities for young people in Europe, in Africa, is the most important part: that's the part of globalization that is important. We have to also be competitive, we have to make sure that we can create new jobs all around the world, because if large parts of our population don't have any hope for the future, and especially if young people don't have any hope for the future, they will be targets for extremists. That's the job of all political leaders.feedback

Eric T. Schneiderman

Abandoning efforts to counter violent white supremacist ideology is profoundly misguided and will endanger Americans.feedback

Robert Fico

Today we see people in the parliament and regional government using the fascist salute (...) we see statements challenging the results of the World War Two and the Holocaust on a daily basis.feedback

Hoda Hawa

That is concerning for us because they are targeting a faith group and casting it under a net of suspicion.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

Europe is facing a moment of truth. The issue is populism. What we are hearing from the U.S. encourages populism and even extremism. They are saying that Europe should not take immigrants, shouldn't stay together, not believe in climate change. Love thy neighbor' is part of this (American Christian) tradition, the act of helping others. We have signed international obligations, so welcoming refugees fleeing war and oppression forms part of our duties. President Trump is right. I built a wall along Israel's southern border. It stopped all illegal immigration. Great success. Great idea.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

Europe is facing a moment of truth. The issue is populism. What we are hearing from the U.S. encourages populism and even extremism. They are saying that Europe should not take immigrants, shouldn't stay together, not believe in climate change. We have signed international obligations, so welcoming refugees fleeing war and oppression forms part of our duties. The United States is responsible for the United States' policy on refugees.feedback

Mark Toner

Th?e United States remains committed to a political resolution to the Syrian crisis, which can bring about a more representative, peaceful, and united Syria, free of terrorism and extremism,?feedback

Brian Levin

We are seeing the coarseness that exists in society generally, those embers, have crossed the fire lines to all parts of the racial, ethnic and ideological spectrum.feedback

Francois Hollande

Democracy, freedom, social rights, Europe and even peace, all of that becomes vulnerable, reversible. We saw it in the United Kingdom, with Brexit, and in the United States during the election in November. We see it across our continent, with the rise of extremism.feedback

Abdirahman Yusuf

With events like Columbus, Ohio, it's important for our community to have a dialogue. This is a relevant issue.feedback

Shannon Erwin

CVE predominantly targets Somalis, Muslims, and Arabs – falsely legitimizing hostility against these communities.feedback

Francois Hollande

As a Socialist, because that is my life's commitment, I cannot accept, I cannot come to terms with the dispersion of the left, with its splitting up. Because that would remove all hope of winning in the face of conservatism, and, worse yet, of extremism.feedback

Mohamed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani

If we will leave them as they are, people from Daesh can recruit them easily. They can start operations from there easily. It (Gaza) can transform also as a launching pad for extremism and for terrorism ... That's why we need to put an end to this.feedback

Milo Yiannopoulos

Who even knew the DoE [sic] had a counter-extremism unit? And that it wasn't set up to combat terrorism but rather to punish gays with the wrong opinions? Perhaps if I'd called the speech 'Muslims are awesome!' they'd have left us alone. Disgusted.feedback

Frank Hansel

I think due to the fact that America has a new leader maybe the latent anti-Americanism that there is in some parts of the German population, in the right end of the extremism left or the extremism right, maybe Donald Trump can change this mistrust.feedback

Frank Hansel

We are already the third party in the polls…The problem is the media, the media has told the Germans that our party is right wing or extremism populist, or whatever you call it, I think the same media-bashing that America experienced with Donald Trump we are facing.feedback

Bill Clinton

Hillary Clinton's plan will import generations of terrorism, extremism and radicalism into your schools and throughout your communities.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Her plans would mean generations of terrorism, extremism and radicalism spreading into your schools and through your communities.feedback

Bob Goodlatte

It "defies logic and the law that she faces no consequences for jeopardizing national security.feedback

Irina Bokova - UNESCO

In the context of repeated violence against people and their heritage, this sentence of the International Criminal Court is a key element in the broader response to violent extremism.feedback

Mansour Hadi

We tell the whole world in very clear terms that extremism and sectarian terrorism sponsored by Iran in the region has created and will create a terrorism counter to that. We decided to move the central bank to the interim capital, Aden, in order to save what we could save so that the bank would not reach zero reserves.feedback

Bernhard Weidinger

In principle, party-leader Strache steered the FPÖ so far to the right, that personal as well as programmatic overlappings with extra-parliamentary right-wing extremism, and with neo-nazism, are almost inevitable. We consider the FPÖ an extreme right wing party.feedback

Jimmy Keyrouz

Our message is one of hope, and when people are hopeless and desperate, it becomes easier to turn to extremism. And in a world that is torn by wars and devastation, art is a mighty tool that helps us fight extremism and terrorism, so thank you to the academy for joining our fight. We take so many things for granted, like freedom of speech and expression, and in so many parts of the world, these are luxuries that must be fought for every day.feedback

Barack Obama

If we are honest, we know that no external power is going to be able to force different religious communities or ethnic communities to co-exist for long. Until basic questions are answered about how communities co-exist, the embers of extremism will continue to burn. Countless human beings will suffer.feedback

Bounnhang Vorachith - Association of Southeast Asian Nations

Multifaceted security challenges have occurred in many parts of the world, such as terrorism and extremism, natural disasters, climate change, migration crisis, trafficking in people, territorial disputes and armed conflicts. At the same time, although the global economy has gradually recovered, growth remains slow and fragile.feedback

John Kerry

Democracy, still provides the most resilient and reliable platform we have for preventing and responding to violent extremism ... to defeat terrorists, we must uphold, not betray, the democratic principles we cherish and they abhor. Bangladesh cannot truly meet the aspirations of its people and share prosperity if its workers are not safe and their rights are not ensured.feedback

John Podesta

Trump's newly installed brain trust. Republicans up and down the ticket are going to have to choose whether they want to be complicit in this lurch toward extremism or stand with voters who can't stomach it.feedback

Keith Vaz

Huge corporations like Google, Facebook and Twitter, with their billion-dollar incomes, are consciously failing to tackle this threat and passing the buck by hiding behind their supranational legal status, despite knowing that their sites are being used by the instigators of terror. The companies' failure to tackle this threat has left some parts of the internet ungoverned, unregulated and lawless.feedback

Harriet Harman

Providing a clear definition of extremism is a difficult task and the government has yet to succeed in doing it.feedback

Javad Zarif

We are very pleased to see that the relations between Turkey and Russia have improved. And now they are moving towards co-operation on the issues of a region, which is important to all these three countries (Iran, Turkey and Syria). Syria should develop its future. We're thinking that, we must stand against ISIS and al-Nusra's extremism together.feedback

Darsi Vazquez

A few years back, technology wasn't where it's at it now, so you couldn't see things like this happening like you see it now. I don't know if it's necessarily getting worse, but we're seeing it more now. We don't just see what's happening outside our window, we also see what's going on outside other people's window.feedback

Barack Obama

We're moving forward with the most significant reinforcement of our collective defense any time since the Cold War.feedback

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

We are very close (to the target) and I'm certain that we will reach that level.feedback

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

For our nations to be safe, it's not enough to keep our defenses strong, we must help to make our partners stronger. Training local forces is often our best weapon against violent extremism.feedback

Jan Jambon

We know that radicalism, violent extremism, is in a small minority of the Muslim community and it targets families.feedback

Dee Collins

We are aware of the speculation within the media in respect of the suspect's link to mental health services and this is a clear line of inquiry which we are pursuing. We are also aware of the inference within the media of the suspect being linked to right wing extremism which is again a priority line of inquiry which will help us establish the motive for the attack on Jo.feedback

Barack Obama

There's no magic to the phrase 'radical Islam'. It's a political talking point. It's not a strategy. And the reason I am careful about how I describe this threat has nothing to do with political correctness and everything to do with actually defeating extremism.feedback

Sadiq Khan

Donald Trump's views are ignorant, divisive and dangerous – it's the politics of fear at its worst and will be rejected at the ballot box just as it was in London. Sadiq has spent his whole life fighting extremism, but Trump's remarks make that fight much harder for us all – it plays straight into the extremists' hands and makes both our countries less safe.feedback

Doug Ducey

His death is a tragic reminder of the daily sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform – fighting evil and extremism on the front lines to protect freedom and democracy at home and throughout the world.feedback

Madeleine Albright

Well, I think it is different, but I do think that populism / nationalism are very dangerous forces, because they seem to be filled with not just extremism, but based on the fact that you hate somebody else. It's one thing to be proud of who you are, your identity. It's another to decide that the people who live next door to you are unacceptable.feedback

Mariwan Naqshbandi

Through Friday preaches we now try, with the help of enlightened imams, to make our people understand the tolerance of Islam, and to reject extremism. The Islamic scholars here also visit the local prisons that hold many ISIL militants, to try to change the minds of these lost youths and to bring them back onto the right track.feedback

Brandy Donini-Melanson

I wouldn't call this a failure. Let us get to a point where we have some funded programs and where there is some level of measurement to determine whether these efforts are successful or not.feedback

Borge Brende

It shows that one is vulnerable when it comes to violent extremism and terrorism in all of North Africa.feedback

Ash Carter

Our focus here is going to be on counter-ISIL and that campaign will go on because ISIL must be defeated, will be defeated, whatever happens with the Syrian civil war. But it certainly would help to de-fuel extremism if the Syrian civil war came to an end.feedback

Abbas Akhoundi

Our first measure will be a contract with Airbus for 114 new aircraft, which will soon be signed and we will release more details after striking the deal. We could have the first fleet of these airplanes in Iran before 21 March.feedback

Paolo Gentiloni

We maintained a good level of contact, so we can say today, Italy is not returning to Iran, as our institutions, our companies, never really left the country.feedback

Hassan Rouhani

We are ready to welcome investment, welcome technology and create a new export market.feedback

Hassan Rouhani

Under the new conditions, we want to export 30 per cent of what we produce in Iran. If we want to combat extremism in the world, if we want to fight terror, one of the roads before us is providing growth and jobs. Lack of growth creates forces for terrorism. Unemployment creates soldiers for terrorists.feedback

Paolo Gentiloni

We are not looking at simple reactivation of our cooperation with Iran, but rather a comprehensive relaunch of a strategic alliance.feedback

David Cameron

Someone can move to here with very basic English and there's no requirement to improve it over time. We will change that. We will now say: if you don't improve your fluency, that could affect your ability to stay in the UK.feedback

Adam Deen

It (extremism) was normalised for me, to enter a conversation and sit with people, talking about potentially performing a terrorist act in London. I look back now and think, what the hell was I doing?' But then it just felt normal. The West were attacking Muslims, they were our enemy.feedback

Adam Deen

We need to stop people going on this journey to extremism. And that requires a theological reform. The very way we understand Islam, the way we understand the world through the Islamic lens, needs to change.feedback

Sabrina Goldman

When she compares prayers in the streets to the German occupation, Marine Le Pen is in fact summoning up hatred. She is laying the Muslim community open to victimisation, in the usual style that the National Front employs, via fantasies, fear, waving the red flag of extremism, and this rebounds on the whole Muslim community.feedback

Charlie Winter

Though there are some commendable efforts being undertaken by counter violent extremism practitioners and civil society organisations, they are dwarfed in size by ISIL's media behemoth, which produces on average 38 individual batches of propaganda each day – videos, photo essays, articles and audio programmes.feedback

Iyad Shamse

There is no Islamic State in this area. The Russians are applying great pressure on the revolution. This will strengthen terrorism, everyone will head towards extremism. Any support for Assad in this way is strengthening terrorism.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

Shira was a brave girl. She was murdered by a vile person because she supported the simple notion that everyone has the right to live their lives respectfully and with security. The despicable murderer who stabbed Shira and five others tried to undermine this fundamental value, the basic values on which our society is built – social equality and individual rights that we sanctify.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

Israel's absolute commitment is to fight this evil, to find the perpetrators and bring them to justice. We have to calm spirits and recommit ourselves to our joint battle against terrorism and extremism.feedback

David Cameron

Government needs to start asking searching questions about social housing to promote integration and avoid segregated social housing estates where people living there are from the same, single minority ethnic background.feedback

David Cameron

Areas of cities and towns like Bradford and Oldham continue to be some of the most segregated parts of our country. It's no coincidence that these are some of the places where community relations have historically been most tense, where poisonous far-right and Islamist extremists desperately try to stoke tension and foster division.feedback

David Cameron

There is a danger in some of our communities that you can go your whole life and have little to do with people from other faiths and backgrounds. So, when groups like ISIL seek to rally our young people to their poisonous cause, it can offer them a sense of belonging that they can lack here at home.feedback

Adeela Suleman

It's like reading, if you capitulate, if you read it all the time, then somewhere it does leave a mark and especially on young minds, especially our children who are trying to find their way. That's why. If you talk the language of hatred, hatred will be spread. If you talk about love, love will be spread.feedback

Khaled Akasheh

What we say, what we teach, what we write, what we preach, should be against extremism and violence, and at the same time call strongly to building justice.feedback

Dimitry Safonov

Unfortunately our voice was not heard, the position was not supported. Maybe if there had been backing at the time, extremism would not be as widespread as it is today.feedback

Barack Obama

We're going to discuss our shared future, the global economy that creates jobs and opportunity, maintaining a strong and prosperous European Union, forging new trade partnerships across the Atlantic, standing up to Russian aggression in Ukraine, combating threats from violent extremism to climate change.feedback

Mohammed Shaikhibrahim - Euronews

The creation of this force is imperative to fight extremism and terrorism which is spreading in the Arab world, but the question of how to put these steps into practice is still facing a lot of difficulties, notably the deep political differences between Arab regimes.feedback

Stefan Grobe - Euronews

There seems to be a newly-found sense of urgency among governments to fight violent extremism as a global scourge. The recent atrocities by ISIL and its supporters have certainly helped forging that determination. As Jordan's foreign minister has put it: 'Every one of us is a target.feedback

Barack Obama

When peaceful democratic change is impossible, it feeds into the terrorists' propaganda that violence is the only answer available.feedback

Stefan Grobe - Euronews

The Obama administration is hammering home the point that this fight goes far beyond the immediate threat by ISIL. It's about discrediting voices of hatred and extremism across the board in our cities and communities. This is a task for civil society that will certainly outlast all governments represented here at the summit.feedback

Lina Gotterman

I think it's important that we show that this is a very very important thing that we can have our expression, free expression, and that Jews can be allowed as well as Christians as well as Muslims, as well as all religions.feedback

Diego Giuliani - Euronews

Given the recent tragic events in France, I can't avoid asking you about the attack against Charlie Hebdo. First of all: what are you feelings, right now?feedback

Tareq al-Hashemi

The international community should not blame us, they should blame themselves, they should blame Maliki. When they rendered him the support in 2010 we were the winners…At the end of the day we discovered that the US collaborated with Iran to support Maliki. And this is what happened. The time has come for the international community to step in and help the Iraqis to get together and rectify the historical mistakes in order to establish a civil inclusive state which puts all Iraqis, irrespective of their roots, on an equal footing, with equal responsibilities, and rights.feedback

Ghulam Murtaza

No outside forces should be allowed to enter Pakistani territory. If any country has carried out an operation inside our territory, it is against our sovereignty. We should not give permission to anyone to do that.feedback

Anders Fogh Rasmussen - NATO

It's not NATO as an alliance, but individual NATO allies are engaged. What you see now is really how much the international community as such is concerned about this situation and the spread of extremism and terrorism. It requires a unified response from the international community across traditional lines of division.feedback

Yair Lapid

Israelis have said 'No' to a politics of fear and hatred, No' to splitting into tribes or groups divided by interest, No' to extremism and an anti-democracy.feedback

Saeb Erekat

We appreciate the Europeans being payers, but we want the Europeans to be players. I'm not saying that because I woke up one morning and felt my conscience in love with Europe. I'm talking about geo-politics, talking about history, talking about interests. And if we need to dry the swamp of extremism in our region, we need to dry the swamp of this reoccupation. We believe that Europe should be the main partner, the main player, and that's what we're working on all the time.feedback

Mahmoud Abbas

We reaffirm the peaceful aspect of our initiative because we reject violence and terror in all its aspects, especially state terrorism as well as the terror perpetrated by armed settlers. We will abort their wishes: we won't fall into the trap of extremism.feedback

Gordon Brown

Terrorism is not a cause. It is a crime. And it is a crime against humanity and there should be no safe haven and no hiding place for those who practice terrorist violence or preach terrorist extremism. Ladies and gentlemen, in Iraq we have duties to discharge and responsibilities to keep.feedback

Tony Blair

A major part of the answer to Iraq lies not in Iraq itself, but outside it, in the whole of the region where the same forces are at work, where the roots of this global terrorism are to be found, where the extremism flourishes with propaganda that maybe indeed is totally false but is nevertheless attractive to much of the Arab street.feedback

Francois Chinac

Every year 11 million young people enter the job market in Africa. They don't all find jobs and very often this problem radicalises them and pushes them into extremism.feedback

Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz

All those ingredients push young people towards extremism, towards desolation, it's effectively that….feedback

Jacques Chirac

France rejects extremism, racism, anti-Semitism, we respect the individual. In our history we have seen the damage extremism does, it divides, it perverts, it is poison.feedback

Wil van Gemert - Europol

It's the most popular tool but other tools will be used. Even if they are getting radicalised by social media you still have to travel there [to Syria] and there has to be a network for that. With the internet there's the possibility to get to hundreds of people. Many more people can be radicalised.feedback

Erin Marie Saltman

The idea of a lone wolf narrative is not true – you don't go online to buy a pair of shoes and then become radicalised. The first contact is a real world contact, like someone in your community or something in the media. After that people go online in a vacuum and search for the message they want.feedback

Wil van Gemert - Europol

In the past there were preachers who reached out and they had maybe eight or 10 followers. But with the internet there's the possibility to get to hundreds of people. Many more people can be radicalised.feedback

Erin Marie Saltman

I would try and explain that negative messages are not the way forward – we should be better at engaging and realise the extremist propaganda does have a counter narrative.feedback

Erin Marie Saltman

Governments have been slow in taking social media seriously as a tool that is legitimate and they are at a loss [at how to react]. They tend to target organisations – such as Twitter – but you're attacking the system and not the root cause.feedback

Tieman Hubert Coulibaly

We have a plan in 12 points, including the economy, infrastructure, and social services. We think that extremism and terrorism can only grow where there is ignorance and poverty.feedback

David Cameron

It's no secret that we've had differing views on how best to handle the situation, but we share fundamental aims to end the conflict, to stop Syria fragmenting, to let the Syrian people choose who governs them and to prevent the growth of violent extremism.feedback

Omar Khayam

I do not support terrorism or extremism. I would like to apologise unreservedly and wholeheartedly to the families of the victims I understand it was wrong, unjustified and insensitive of me to protest in this way.feedback

Salaheddine Mezouar

The economic dimension is fundamental but one must not forget all the questions related to tolerance and the fight against extremism.feedback

Marvi Sirmed

How could you get power from a symbol that is so humiliating and demeaning to women's power? Projecting a symbol that is so closely associated with the submission of women and you are now just reimagining and reimaging the burka, the symbol of suppression, as a symbol of resistance.feedback

Gerhard Schroeder

They must acknowledge our democratic rules of the game.feedback

Tzipi Livni

We are fighting for the image of the state of Israel. It's not just Beit Shemesh and not just gender segregation, it's all the extremist elements that are rearing their heads and are trying to impose their world view on us.feedback

Mitt Romney

I congratulate him on taking out Osama bin Laden and going after the leadership in al Qaeda. But we can't kill our way out of this mess. We're going to have to put in place a very comprehensive and robust strategy to help the world of Islam and other parts of the world to reject this radical violent extremism.feedback

Fred Ponsard - Euronews

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has just been through one of its bloodiest episodes in Gaza. Your movie Ana Arabia sketches the possibility of peaceful coexistence between Jews and Arabs in the Holy Land. Filmmakers, writers.. Are they today the last bastions against nationalism and extremism?feedback

Cobus de Swardt - Transparency International

The most powerful way to deal with populism, in the way that we see it emerging at the moment, is indeed for dramatically more accountability. If you look at countries such as Greece, more than 80% of Greek citizens say they have no trust in the political system or in political parties. In that environment, all forms of extremism will obviously flourish.feedback

David Cameron

What we must do is re-double efforts to stop all our people going, to take away the passports of those contemplating travel, to arrest and prosecute those who share in this extremism and violence, to take extremist material off the internet and do everything we can to keep our people safe.feedback

Angela Merkel

Terrorism in the form of right wing extremism is a disgrace, and shameful for Germany and we will do everything to clarify things and to see justice is served.feedback

Nursultan Nazarbayev

Today, of course, the most serious regional problem is Afghanistan. There is also the nuclear situation in Iran. This debate continues. The world community has not received a definite response yet. The 'frozen conflicts' also fall within the scope of OSCE liability: the Nagorno-Karabakh, Transnistria, Georgia-Abkhazia and Georgia-South Ossetia conflicts. The Balkan issues remain, as well. And the main challenge, of course, is that of terrorism, extremism and drug trafficking.feedback

Maajid Nawaz

As well as being a very positive change for the United Kingdom, this is a very proud moment for Quilliam. This represents not a change but a continuation for us, as challenging extremism of all kinds forms the basis of our work. We have been able to show that Britain stands together against extremism regardless of political views and hope to continue supporting Tommy and Kevin in their journey to counter Islamism and neo-Nazi extremism.feedback

Tommy Robinson

I have been considering this move for a long time because I recognise that, though street demonstrations have brought us to this point, they are no longer productive. I acknowledge the dangers of far-right extremism and the ongoing need to counter Islamist ideology not with violence but with better, democratic ideas.feedback

Robert S. Mueller III

Concerns we have about individuals who may support terrorism being in the United States run from concerns about providing financing to terrorists, radicalising others with regard to violent extremism.feedback

Isabelle Kumar - Euronews

There has been a military operation against the Taliban with the end of peace efforts – marking an end to those peace efforts – after the Taliban admitted that they had the insurgency, to the extremism. So you don't support this operation at the moment?feedback
