All quotes about Islam

Brendan Cox

What the terrorist would like to happen is for us to fall apart and start blaming groups of people, to say that in some way this is Muslim or Islam as a whole. We have to remember that the person who did this is no more representative of British Muslims than the person who killed Jo is representative of people that are from Yorkshire. I'm going to do whatever I can to remember the names of the victims like PC Palmer and not the name of the person.

Brigitte Gabriel

Waving the Constitution, is a misrepresentation when one's religion teaches that it and any other man-made law, for that matter, are to be removed and superseded by the Quran.

Brigitte Gabriel

ACT for America has a direct line to Donald Trump, and has played a fundamental role in shaping his views and suggested policies with respect to radical Islam.

Emmanuel Macron

The trap you are falling into, Mrs Le Pen, through your provocations, is dividing society. It is making enemies of the Republic out of the more than four million French men and women whose religion is Islam, the vast majority of whom are absolutely not leading ethnically separate lives but instead living in our Republic. Well I won't do that!

Job Janssen

He is more isolated than he ever was before. The risk in this is that he has no option but to further radicalize. To continue to dominate debate, the only option is a confrontational course.

Geert Wilders

The fight against Islamization and the E.U. will now simply be tougher, stronger and more effective as the second largest party in the Netherlands!

Rina van Dijk

People are on a waiting list for 10 years, and they don't get a place to live. These refugees come here, and they get a place to live right away. I understand those tensions. I would like to see, with all the things Wilders is saying, whether he can do anything.

Linda Muis

There are a lot of Muslims. There are a lot of black people. The white people, the Dutch people, they're getting less and less. Or lock them up for life. Wilders said women shouldn't wear headscarves. I agree with that. So many people voted for him. But nobody wants to do a coalition with him. Nobody's going to let him win.

Mabel Berezin

The real bellwether election will be Marine Le Pen's quest for the French presidency, starting April 23 – that is where the populist action is and that is what we should be focusing upon.

Alexander Kneepkens

Theresa May seems likely to be facing a more confident EU instead of one careening towards Nexit and Frexit when she triggers Article 50 in coming days.

Mabel Berezin

He does not represent a populist wave. Rather, he is part of the political landscape and how his party fares does not tell us much about European populism. The real bellwether election will be Marine Le Pen's quest for the French presidency, starting April 23 – that is where the populist action is and that is what we should be focusing upon.

Mabel Berezin

'He does not represent a populist wave. Rather, he is part of the political landscape and how his party fares does not tell us much about European populism,'. The real bellwether election will be Marine Le Pen's quest for the French presidency, starting April 23 - that is where the populist action is and that is what we should be focusing upon.

Ben Sasse

We should tell the truth about the enemy we face. We are most certainly at war with militant Islam.

Angela Merkel

I was very glad, and I think many people are, that a high turnout led to a very pro-European result.

Scott Appleby

It'll be tied to the issues of the day, but not taking a political side. It'll be, We didn't know that about Hinduism,' or 'We didn't know Islam is so involved in working with Catholic relief services for the poor in Asia. We're celebrating this gift because we want to be a positive messenger about religion and diversity. They wanted to make a very positive statement that we wanted to call attention to.

Sigmar Gabriel

We have seen that more than 80 per cent of the Dutch took a stand against the enemies of Europe and Islam ... It is a clear pro-European signal at a time when many had expected something else.

Geert Wilders

Whatever the outcome of the election today, the genie will not go back into the bottle and this patriotic revolution, whether today or tomorrow, will take place.

Karen Attiah

Remember when rescuing women from the violence of radical Islam was used by Laura Bush as a reason for U.S. troops to go to war to fight terrorism abroad? Now it appears that President Trump is using women’s safety to justify keeping foreigners from Muslim countries out of the United States.

Mark Rutte

We need time for everybody to get back into the mood for cooperation, and that doesn't happen in a few hours.

Geert Wilders

We are the second party in the Netherlands. Congratulations. We would have preferred to be the first party.

Sigmar Gabriel

We have seen that more than 80 percent of the Dutch took a stand against the enemies of Europe and Islam … It is a clear pro-European signal at a time when many had expected something else.

Mark Rutte

We lost eight seats, but we're very happy to be the biggest party again. We have had a tough campaign, with reproaches back and forth. We need time for everybody to get back into the mood for cooperation, and that doesn't happen in a few hours.

Mark Rutte

Our message to the Netherlands - that we will hold our course and keep this country safe, stable and prosperous - got through. This was an evening when, after Brexit and Trump, the Netherlands said, 'Stop' to the wrong sort of populism.

Donald J. Trump

We're having problems with Muslims, and we're having problems with Muslims coming into the country. Islam hates us.

Geert Wilders

Whatever the outcome of the election today the genie will not go back into the bottle and this patriotic revolution, whether today or tomorrow, will stay. I think that with what's happening in America, perhaps in other European countries, that once again the normal people want to be patriotic in their own country that has its own sovereignty again.

Christopher S. Murphy

I don't think there is any way that the United States is going to decide which version of Islam ultimately prevails globally, and it would be frankly improper for us to try to play that role. What I'm saying is that it should speak to who our allies are and who our allies aren't. We should be choosing alliances with countries that are trying to spread moderate Islam and … we should question our alliances with countries that are spreading intolerant versions of Islam.

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.

Michael Birnbaum

Geert Wilders, a fiery fixture of the Dutch far-right who wants to ban the Koran and shutter mosques, topped polls for months, unnerving mainstream leaders in France and Germany who face elections later this year. His support has waned in recent weeks, but he has already forced many Dutch parties to sharpen their rhetoric toward immigrants. … A Wilders defeat would likely slow the momentum of French anti-immigrant leader Marine Le Pen, who if she captured her nation's presidency in May would try to lead France out of the European Union, shattering the bloc in the process.

Hussam Ayloush

Regardless of the values driving this new product, it is always a welcomed move when corporations and media normalize the presence of Islam and Muslims in our world and especially in the U.S. Such normalization helps weaken the rhetoric of fear and bigotry advanced by the powerful Islamophobia industry.

James Franey - Euronews

Geert Wilders has in many ways followed in the footsteps of Pim Fortuyn, who rose to prominence in the Netherlands after 9/11. Socially liberal, but a critic of immigration and Islam, this openly gay politician dared to speak up on issues that were considered taboo at the time. His party topped the polls ahead of the 2002 general election.

James Franey - Euronews

But he was shot dead after leaving a radio interview nine days before the vote. And two years later, director Theo Van Gogh was killed by a radical Islamist over a film he made that was critical of Islam. Freedom of speech cost both men their lives. It's left this country wondering more than a decade later what it means to be Dutch.

Joris Luyendijk

However well his anti-EU, anti-Islam and anti-immigration platform does in the general election, Wilders will not get to lead a government – or a Nexit. Whether Geert Wilders’ PVV party ends in first, second or third place in the Dutch general election on Wednesday, one thing is certain: the Netherlands will still be gripped by “populism paralysis”.

Mark Rutte

I want The Netherlands to be the first country which stops this trend of the wrong sort of populism. You could say these are the quarter-finals in trying to prevent the wrong sort of populism to win. The half-finals are in France in April and May and then in September in Germany you have the finals.

Lizzy Martin

Children can pretend to be a salesman, wrap themselves in Senegalese fabrics, smell spices, roll a rug or pretend to fish in Zanzibar. Hands-on is how children learn.

Zeyba Rahman

It's timely at this moment of great fear and anxiety among our community – all of us are feeling it. I think the extension of the exhibition will be useful to remind us of our great American heritage; it's a country of immigrants.

Zeyba Rahman

We focus on projects that increase understanding and relationships between Muslim and non-Muslim communities in the U.S.

Hussein Rashid

Would I love to get more people to this exhibit and get them to understand that Muslims are human beings with desires and passions and artistic creativity in ways that maybe they haven't thought about before? Absolutely. What is happening to Muslims now is tragic, but our goal is to educate.

Andrew S. Ackerman

People really want to dig in and get a better understanding from a trusted source about Muslim cultures. We want young children to be exposed to as much diversity as possible to better understand other people and themselves, and there's no question that reduces prejudice, violence and misunderstandings. He was from Morocco, and got up and told his classmates how the rugs were made and what the designs meant.

Madelene Geswaldo

We address Muslim culture in a positive way so that kids will not form ideas of having to be scared, or that all Muslims are terrorists or bad people.

Faiza Mushtaq

The 'empowerment' that so many Al-Huda women speak about doesn't make much sense from a liberal feminist perspective, especially to those who can't come to terms with these women's full face-and-body covering.

Humaira Iqbal

Our elite didn't have any religion, and so religion was literally preserved by the clerics. They led funerals and prayers, and taught kids to read the Quran. But unfortunately, because they were illiterate, they could not understand Islam like an educated person.

Faiza Mushtaq

Yet in many ways, Al-Huda has given these women access to new forms of community and new positions of authority.

Humaira Iqbal

The concept of this workshop is that people realize that as far as religion is concerned, it is really, really encouraged.

Marc Schatorjé

A lot of people think the things he says, but he says it. I don't have a problem with the whole of Islam, just Moroccans and immigrants who don't make you feel safe on the street anymore.

Mark Verheijen

Ever since I knew him starting in 1997, he has been talking about the dangers of radical Islam. And no one in politics was interested at the time.

Enis Odaci

The Dutch-Turkish society here is still with one leg in their mother country. And now Erdogan comes along and asks loyalty. He says, Give me your vote because you are Turkish people,' not Dutch-Turkish, German-Turkish or French-Turkish. And that is very, very delicate in the international debate about Islam and integration and migration.

Jan de Boer

Islam is very dangerous. I'm very scared and I mean it, honestly.

Mohamed Nasheed

This very narrow version of Islam favors their authoritarian rule. It has been propagated in the Maldives for many years and has created a breeding ground for radical Islam.

Ahmad Tibi

Here in this house we never interfered with any religious ceremony relating to you, to Judaism. You are committing a racist act, you interfere with the most sensitive issue for Muslims and hurt the religion of Islam.

David Decosimo

From his hateful tweets and provocative rhetoric to his “new” executive order banning Muslims and refugees all over again, President Trump is driven by the idea that Islam is a threat to what makes us American. Trump has declared that “Islam hates us.” “There is,” he says, “an unbelievable hatred.” Stephen K. Bannon, one [].

Geert Wilders

The Koran really, for instance if you look at anti-Semitism, the Koran has more anti-Semitism in it than Mein Kampf, the book of another totalitarian violent ideology. So rather I would have no Koran at all as we in Holland at least have outlawed Mein Kampf as well.

Mark Rutte

We are now number one in the polls, but we still have the Freedom Party just behind us, Geert Wilders, so there is still a big risk that he could come out number one, so I think that it would be very bad news. I will fight very hard for my party to get out first.

Maurice de Hond

My research shows that there is a part of population who is pessimistic about their financial future. It's about 30-35 percent of Dutch population, usually also with lower education, who are favourable for a party like party of Wilders.

Geert Wilders

Islam...might be dressed up as a religion. I believe that the Koran and the Islam more especially might be dressed up as a religion. It has a holy book, it has a temple. It has Imams. But in reality, it is not so much a religion but an ideology.

Ali Rizvi

You can't sanitize scripture. I think fundamentalists have a more honest approach. … They're more consistent. The reason that anti-Muslim bigotry exists is not because people like me are talking about what we're talking about. It's because there are millions of people watching their TV screens and they're seeing a guy drive a truck into a crowd in Nice, screaming 'Allahu Akbar,' or they see the Taliban go into a school in Peshawar and kill 132 kids, screaming 'Allahu Akbar' and quoting from the Quran, and they look at this and they just put the dots together.

Ali Rizvi

Bin Laden was a huge fan of Chomsky, had his books, and quoted him in a few of his speeches. So should Chomsky stop speaking truthfully about the problems of U.S. foreign policy because Americans may get attacked around the world? Well, of course not. If something is true and needs to be said, it needs to be said. It is more important now than ever, to challenge and criticize the doctrine of Islam. And it is more important now than ever to protect and defend the rights of Muslims.

Ali Rizvi

Challenging Islam as a doctrine, is very different from demonizing Muslim people. It establishes a hierarchy of authority, where men are deemed to be 'in charge' of women. It also asks wives to be obedient to their husbands, and allows their husbands–in the most controversial part of the verse–to beat them if they fear disobedience.

Geert Wilders

I rather would have not Koran at all as we in Holland at least have outlawed Mein Kampf as well. It might be in some part highly symbolic, still it would have an enormous effect to do so. If one country is tougher on its immigration policy than the other, then the most immigrants go to the country with the softest immigration policy.

Rudi Kunzel

The first crisis of capitalism was in 2008 and it was not followed by the return of work opportunities. So people are rightly angry, but they wrongly turn their anger against minorities.

Geert Wilders

Mr Rutte is right, there is a very big chance the PVV will be the biggest party in the Netherlands after the elections. But I don't agree with what he says that we do wrong kind of populism. We say what people want to hear when it comes to immigration, integration, Islam, problems which are real.

Elisabeth Kendall

The fact that [Al Masra] would put this so prominently on the front page – as lead article – indicates it has traction, that this is a way to win support. It plays entirely into their narrative that they were right about the West's war on Islam all along. It shows us how much al-Qaeda is trying to capitalize on some of the policies of the Trump administration. Trump has created an upsurge in militant jihadist attention on America – it was previously on America but also on many other targets like Shiites in Yemen, Iraq and even Syria – but this has really refocused attention on America itself.

Aziz Ansari

George W Bush made a speech after 9/11, and it really helped. Things changed. … He said Islam is peace.

Peter Hultqvist

We have a Russian annexation of Crimea, we have the aggression in Ukraine, we have more exercise activities in our neighborhood. So we have decided to build a stronger national defense.

Jean-Marc Ayrault

This kind of interference in French democratic life is unacceptable. The French will not accept anyone dictating their [electoral] choices.

Dan Pawson-Pounds

The defendant had a profound and enduring interest in extremist Islam, jihad and the propaganda of Islamic State and other terrorist organisations.

Nava Nuraniyah

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

Yahya Cholil Staquf

His visit will be easily perceived as more support to radical Islamic movements in Indonesia, as it is already a common public understanding that those radical movements take theological reference from Saudi Wahhabism and have been enjoying various kinds of support from Saudi Arabia.

Dadi Darmadi

That being said, the Indonesian government has to be more wise and stop considering the hajj quota as a political gambit to attract more populist support in this country.

Yenny Wahid

The two countries face the same challenge of rising radicalism and intolerance, so cooperation in those areas will be beneficial.

Muhammad Adlin Sila

Theology, which is a mandatory subject there, is only taught by committed Wahhabis, and I really think their ideology is antithetical to traditional Indonesian Islam, which is usually syncretic and relaxed.

Nava Nuraniyah

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

Mohammad Abdullah Alshuaibi

We have built mosques, hospitals, and schools there. And an Arabic language institute. Wahhabi, Wahhabi, Wahhabi… people love to throw around this term without knowing what it means! They make baseless accusations. It is crazy!

Din Wahid

The advent of Salafism in Indonesia is part of Saudi Arabia's global project to spread its brand of Islam throughout the Muslim world.

Chris Chaplin

Salafi pesantren, and Saudi-inspired religious education in general, no longer necessarily rely on Saudi donations, as followers have become incredibly adept at raising money locally.

Chris Chaplin

In fact, given the size of his entourage, I wouldn't be surprised if there will be a flurry of networking activity amongst Indonesian alumni of Saudi universities.

Hassan Rouhani

Soon it's the (Iranian) New Year, so let the people have some joy. How come crying a lot is halal (allowed under Islam) and if we laugh it's haram (banned). We are a government that says we should use foreign capital. We say if our aircraft fleet is in need of new planes we should buy them. But some say it's honorable to use old equipment. We are steadfast in our principles and we don't compromise on them, but we should talk to the world, engage and cooperate with it.

Peter R. Mansoor

He absolutely does not view Islam as the enemy. So I think he will present a degree of pushback against the theories being propounded in the White House that this is a clash of civilizations and needs to be treated as such.

Ebubekir Ozture

It is not the first time and probably won't be the last time. He has said worse things about Moroccans and Muslims. As crazy as it sounds, people are a bit used to it from him.

Geert Wilders

If a Dutch person driving in a car drives five miles too fast, he will be fined within a minute whereas the Moroccan scum in Holland – once again, not all are scum, but there is a lot of Moroccan scum in Holland who makes the streets unsafe, mostly young people and they are not taken seriously.

Bill Maher

My comments on Islam have never veered into vitriol. Liberals will continue to lose elections as long as they follow the example of people like Mr. Scahill who's views veer into fantasy and away from bedrock liberal principles like equality of women, respect for minorities, separation of religion and state, and free speech. If Mr. Yiannopoulos is indeed the monster Scahill claims – and he might be – nothing could serve the liberal cause better than having him exposed on Friday night.

Dina Afrianty

It is the Indonesian government who asked MUI to release a fatwa to minimize the heightened political tension in this last week of the campaign season, In my view, this is very political. As a quasi-government institution, MUI is often used by the government, any political parties or interest groups for their own political purposes. What I have seen since the first trial took place in early December 2016 (is that) the public gradually realized that Ahok's case is actually a political game, not so much about Islam.

Ahmad Khatami

We have missile drills. Our missile drills are a show of our might. We are living in a world of wolves. Wolves such as the arrogant government of America. In this world of wolves should we remain unarmed and they do whatever damn things they want? No way! This will never happen! Your message is aimed at confronting religion and Islam,'.

Koen Vossen

He's preaching to the converted and also to a few percent _ maybe 10 per cent _ who are still doubting whether they will vote for Wilders. Maybe he will win a few percent extra because of Trump, but he could also lose a few percent.

Marco Tarchi

In a few weeks, months or years, there could be big differences between leaders of populist parties and Trump. Long-term, things could get really complicated.

Alexander Gauland

It makes it easier for people who want to stop Islamic immigration that Trump says: 'You can do it'. If this policy works, and if Mr. Trump works with these goals, then it could be helpful in the next general election in Germany or the French presidential elections.

Jiri Ovcacek

The EU has been discussing the necessity of protecting its external borders for months. However nothing has happened so far. Europe should perceive the steps taken by President Trump as an inspiration.

Hoda Hawa

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

Ben Sasse

There are two ways to lose our generational battle against jihadism by losing touch with reality. The first is to keep pretending that jihadi terrorism has no connection to Islam or to certain countries. That's been a disaster. And here's the second way to fail: If we send a signal to the Middle East that the U.S. sees all Muslims as jihadis, the terrorist recruiters win by telling kids that America is banning Muslims and that this is America versus one religion. Both approaches are wrong, and both will make us less safe. Our generational fight against jihadism requires wisdom.

Ben Herzig

It's very easy to tell a story of victimization, fear, feeling ... not welcome in our own home. But the narrative of Islam in American can be a positive one.

Robin Rhodes

F--k Islam, f--k ISIS. Trump is here now. He will get rid of all of you. You can ask Germany, Belgium and France about these kind of people. You will see what happens. Are you f---ing sleeping. Are you praying? What are you doing?

Ousmane Badjie

We are going to show Barrow we are really armed forces with a difference, I swear to God. I have the Quran with me.

Rex W. Tillerson - ExxonMobil

The economic well-being of our two nations is deeply intertwined. China has been a valuable ally in curtailing elements of radical Islam. We should not let disagreements over other issues exclude areas for productive partnership. We must be clear-eyed about our relationship with Russia. Russia today poses a danger but it is not unpredictable in advancing its own interests.

Hanan al Salem

They forbade us everything. There is no milk, there is no cooking, there is no meat, neither are there any lemons. They forbade us everything.

Basuki Tjahaja Purnama

It is clear what I said in the Thousand Islands was not intended to interpret the (Koran), let alone to insult Islam or the ulema.

Geert Wilders

Three PVV [Party for Freedom] hating judges declare that Moroccans are a race and convict me and half of the Netherlands. Madness.

Najib Razak

We want to tell Aung San Suu Kyi, enough is enough... We must and we will defend Muslims and Islam. We want the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) to act. Please do something. The U.N. do something. The world cannot sit and watch genocide taking place.

Edi Rama

I'm talking about Russia, but I'm also talking about radical Islam.

Iwan Saputra

This is about diversity, but also about unity. We have to separate politics from ethnicity, religion, and race. I want Indonesia to stay united.

Michael Flynn

This insistence on denying the existence of jihad led President Obama to the absurd claim that the Islamic State has nothing to do with Islam.

Mike Pompeo

They must cite the Koran as evidence that the murder of innocents is not permitted.

James Stavridis

I think he will play to the darker angels of this administration in terms of adopting very, very aggressive stance, very hard power, very anti-Islam.

Mike Pompeo

They must cite the Quran as evidence that the murder of innocents is not permitted.

Abdul Kadir

He asked me why I sell cigarettes. He said they are against Islam. I told him I was desperate to make a living because there were no jobs. He said 'take him away and whip him 55 times'. It was with a leather whip ... I could not get out of bed for three days.

Abdul Kadir

He asked me why I sell cigarettes. He said they are against Islam. I told him I was desperate to make a living because there were no jobs.

Evaan Khalas

Now they don't accept me. I wanted to fight with them against Daesh. As long as there is Islam we can't live here.

Hillary Clinton

We are not at war with Islam. And it is a mistake and it plays into the hands of the terrorists to act as though we are. So I want a country where citizens like you and your family are just as welcome as anyone else.

Rick Thornton - FBI

We have numerous credible witness accounts of him asking victims during the attack if they were Muslim, and at least one instance of him yelling 'Allahu Akbar' while stabbing one of his victims, and others heard him yelling 'Islam, Islam.

Ahmed Adan

They continue to mourn and grieve for the loss in their family and express profound sympathy to the victims.

Hafiz Hamdullah

We will impose the law that our holy Quran and Sunnah (tradition) say.

Baba Haidara

Timbuktu is a religious, forgiving and tolerant city. Ahmad al-Faqi apologised and he regretted his actions. So, being a city of tolerance and Islam, I think it is a relief to us.

Thomas De Maiziere

Aggression, including that against practicers of Islam in Germany, is on the rise, so it is even more appalling that an explosives attack took place yesterday evening in Dresden at a mosque and a congress centre, just one day before the tenth anniversary of the German-Islam conference.

Seamus Kearney - Euronews

The architecture here is unique in the way that the various mosques and mausoleums of royals and nobles were built on different levels, added one by one over almost nine centuries.

Ali Chaudry

This individual perpetrator, these terrorist acts do not represent Islam or Muslims in any sense.

Hillary Clinton

We know that a lot of the rhetoric we heard from Donald Trump has been seized on by terrorists, in particular, ISIS, because they are looking to make this into a war against Islam, rather than a war against Jihadists, violent terrorists, people who number in tens of thousands, not the tens of millions- they want to use that to recruit more fighters to their cause by turning it into a religious conflict.

Salaam Ismial

It's not Islam and it's not Muslim. A rightful Muslim would denounce this violence.

Hillary Clinton

We know that a lot of the rhetoric that we've heard from Donald Trump has been seized on by terrorists, in particular by ISIS. They are seeking to make this a war against Islam – We know that Donald Trump's comments have been used online for recruitment by terrorists.

Hillary Clinton

We know that a lot of rhetoric we've heard from Donald Trump has been seized on by terrorists, in particular ISIS, because they're looking to make this into a war against Islam rather than a war against jihadists, violent terrorists, people whose number in the tens of thousands, not tens of millions. They want to use that to recruit more fighters to turn this into a religious conflict.

Hillary Clinton

We know that a lot of the rhetoric we've heard from Donald Trump has been seized on by terrorists, in particular ISIS, because they are looking to make this into a war against Islam rather than a war against jihadists, violent terrorists, people who number in the maybe tens of thousands not the tens of millions.

Mahdi al Ahdal

"Yes I want to pray for Yemen and the people in Syria and Iraq and all the oppressed Muslim people,". "May God guide Islam and all Muslims. This (Hajj) is an Islamic ritual and a part of the five pillars of Islam.".

Mahdi al Ahdal

Yes I want to pray for Yemen and the people in Syria and Iraq and all the oppressed Muslim people. May God guide Islam and all Muslims. This (Hajj) is an Islamic ritual and a part of the five pillars of Islam.

Vladimir Putin

On our part, we will do everything to support this path of mutual development and the people and leadership of Uzbekistan. You can fully count on us as your most reliable friends.

Shavkat Mirziyoev

Our external political relations with the Russian Federation are those of strategic partnership, and we will continue to develop that bridge which you had been building together with Islam Abduganiyevich for so many years in order not to break it, but to further solidify it.

Ayatollah Khamenei

Because of these (Saudi) rulers' oppressive behavior toward God's guests (pilgrims), the world of Islam must fundamentally reconsider the management of the two holy places and the issue of haj. They must not let those rulers escape responsibility for the crimes they have caused throughout the world of Islam.

Barack Obama

Reaffirms its support for the people of Uzbekistan. This week, I congratulated President Karimov and the people of Uzbekistan on their country's 25 years of independence.

Ibrahim Hooper

At least it doesn't give an excuse for the Islam haters to falsely claim that Muslims were celebrating on 9/11. That was the concern.

Manuel Valls

We have to wage a determined fight against radical Islam, against these religious symbols which are filtering into public spaces. For me the burkini is a symbol of the enslavement of women.

Ansar al Islam

Shameem was the leader of that attacking group. After a tip-off, police arrested him from Tongi, on outskirts of the city on Tuesday night.

Islam El Shehaby - Associated Press

I knew he would do it, so it wasn't a surprise for me. But I cannot say anything. This was his decision.

Galal Nassar

As long as you agreed to play an Israeli champion in the Olympics, you should have exchanged the greeting.

Hisham Hatab

The delegation doesn't allow mixing politics with sports. In Judo, the players can either shake hands or bow in respect to each other. It's up to the player.

Islam El Shehaby - Associated Press

My son watch out, don't be fooled, or fool yourself thinking you will play with the Israeli athlete to defeat him and make Egypt happy. Egypt will cry; Egypt will be sad and you will be seen as a traitor and a normalizer in the eyes of your people.

Francois Hollande

Can Islam accommodate secularism? My answer is yes. Clearly yes. Nothing in secularism opposes the practice of Islam in France, and this is the essential point that complies with the law. What needs to succeed is the construction of an Islam of France.

Abu Bakr

The worst method the regime uses is not chemical weapons but it is the sieges, the slow death. We will not allow the repeat of the tragedy of sieges imposed elsewhere in Syria.

Manuel Valls

Our country must show the world brilliantly that Islam is compatible with democracy.

Donald J. Trump

This is war. The NATO military alliance should be doing more to get "rid of ISIS. We're dealing with people without uniforms ... we are allowing people into our country – we have no idea where they are coming from. They have no paperwork, no documentation. This may be the great Trojan Horse of all time.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

They have no connection to Islam. Their place is in hell. These people were innocent; they were children, women, elderly, ... They embarked on a journey unaware, and came face to face with death. You have no such right.

Donald J. Trump

I have been hitting Obama and Crooked Hillary hard on not using the term radical Islamic terror. Hillary just broke – said she would now use!

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.

Hamed Sinno

The issue is not Islam more than any other religion. Most of the attacks that happen against the queer community in the U.S. are not by Muslims, they're by Christian fanatics.

Donald J. Trump

Radical Islam is anti-woman, anti-gay and anti-American. Saudi Arabia and many of the countries that gave vast amounts of money to the Clinton Foundation want women as slaves and to kill gays. Hillary must return all money from such countries!

Barack Obama

What exactly would using this label accomplish, what exactly would it change? Someone seriously thinks we don't know who we're fighting? … There's no magic to the phrase 'radical Islam.' It's a political talking point.

Meer Massih Amarkhil

The Florida shooting is a radical act and radicalism is banned in Islam. It is not allowed in Islam to kill an innocent soul.

Donald J. Trump

Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism. I don't want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart! If Hillary Clinton still cannot say the two words Radical Islam, she should get out of this race for the presidency.

Vladimir Putin

From our side we will do everything to maintain the direction of our mutual development, to support the people of Uzbekistan, the Uzbek leaders. You can count on us, we are your true friends.

Foster Friess - Friess Associates

They have a different kind of worldview, and I believe, if I understand Islam correctly, they would prefer to have the Quran be the dominant guiding force for our country versus the Constitution. So that does make it difficult.

Sadiq Khan

Donald Trump's ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe – it risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays into the hands of the extremists.

Sadiq Khan

Donald Trump's ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe. It risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays into the hands of the extremists. Donald Trump and those around him think that Western liberal values are incompatible with mainstream Islam. London has proved him wrong.

Donald J. Trump

Containing the spread of radical Islam must be a major foreign policy goal of the United States and indeed, the world.

Sven Mary

He [Abdeslam] is a perfect example of the Grand Theft Auto generation who believe they live in a video game. I asked him if he had read the Koran, which is what I did, and he told me that he had read his interpretation of it on the Internet. For simple minds, it is perfect, the 'net, it's the maximum they can understand.

Islam Karimov

Russia has and always had its vital interests in this region. We believe that attempts to resolve this (Afghan) issue without Russia are unreasoned and precipitous.

Islam Karimov

There is a serious and a real threat of instability spilling over into neighbouring countries and regions.

Alan Wilkie

It is shocking, tragic and deplorable that you, two young British men, educated through the UK school system, undertaking university courses, should be so influenced by the bloodthirsty version of Islam presented by Isis and other similarly minded groups, that you decided to take up arms against your fellow British citizens and those charged with protecting them in the streets of your own city.

Mohammed Shaikhibrahim - Euronews

ISIL's extremist interpretation of Islam strips it of its humane and compassionate dimensions, which are the very essence of monotheistic religions. That has triggered a counter-offensive by clerics to win back lost youths and to protect others from Daesh's views.

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.

Ted Cruz

Radical Islam is at war with us. For over seven years we have had a president who refuses to acknowledge this reality. And the truth is, we can never hope to defeat this evil so long as we refuse to even name it. That ends on Jan. 20, 2017, when I am sworn in as president.

Ted Cruz

Radical Islam is at war with us. For over seven years we have had a president who refuses to acknowledge this reality. And the truth is, we can never hope to defeat this evil so long as we refuse to even name it. That ends on January 20, 2017, when I am sworn in as President. We will name our enemy – radical Islamic terrorism. And we will defeat it.

Donald J. Trump

I think Islam hates us. There's something there that's a tremendous hatred there. There's a tremendous hatred. We have to get to the bottom of it. There is an unbelievable of us.

Donald J. Trump

You're gonna have to figure that out, OK? You'll get another Pulitzer. But you're gonna have to figure that out. But there is tremendous hatred, and we have to be very vigilant. We have to be very careful. And we can't allow people coming into this country who have this hatred of the United States – and of people that are not Muslim.

Vladimir Putin

Islam Abduganiyevich [Karimov]was a highly authoritative statesman and a true leader of his country. His name is linked to the milestone events in the history of contemporary Uzbekistani state.

Robert Everett Johnson

The IRS took Ken's money without ever accusing him of doing anything wrong. The IRS realized it was wrong when it changed its policies and it has done the right thing in giving it back. That money should have never been taken in the first place, and I hope this is just the beginning.

Ken Quran

I am very, very happy, and I believe there is justice in this country.

Bernard Cazeneuve

We'll say this again, there's no room in France for those who call for and provoke hatred in prayer rooms or mosques and do not respect the principles of the Republic. I am thinking namely of equality, between men and women.

Barack Obama

America and Islam are not exclusive, and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles - principles of justice and progress; tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.

Barack Obama

An attack on one faith is an attack on all our faiths...we have to be consistent in condemning hateful rhetoric...none of us can be bystanders to bigotry. You're not Muslim or American – you're Muslim and American. Don't grow cynical. Don't respond to ignorance by a world view saying you must choose between your faith and your patriotism. Don't believe you must choose between your best impulses.

Barack Obama

I often hear it said that we need moral clarity in this fight. And the suggestion is somehow that if I would simply say, These are all Islamic terrorists, then we would actually have solved the problem by now, apparently. Let's have some moral clarity: Groups like ISIS are desperate for legitimacy.... We must never give them that legitimacy. They're not defending Islam. They're not defending Muslims.

Sergey Lavrov

Their participation on an individual basis in the delegation formed at Riyadh meeting does not mean – and it is acknowledged by everyone including our American colleagues as co-chairs of the Vienna process – does not mean any acknowledgment of Jaish al-Islam and Ahrar al-Sham as partners in the negotiations.

Samy Mohamed Hamzeh

We are Muslims, defending Muslim religion. We have our own group, not with Hamas ... we are here defending Islam, young people together join to defend Islam, that's it, that is what our intention is.

Hans-Thomas Tillschneider

Islam is foreign to us and for that reason it cannot invoke the principle of religious freedom to the same degree as Christianity.

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.

Hillary Clinton

I worry greatly that the rhetoric coming from the Republicans, particularly Donald Trump, is sending a message to Muslims here in the United States and literally around the world that there is a 'clash of civilizations', that there is some kind of Western plot or even 'war against Islam', which then I believe fans the flames of radicalization.

Alex Nowrasteh - Cato Institute

They did not adopt a radical interpretation of Islam or start plotting a terrorist attack until years after coming here. Their case does not reveal flaws in the refugee vetting process.

Andre Parant

The French authorities and the French people have always acted wisely and with common sense while avoiding misunderstandings and confusion among its citizens. I don't think this will change and I believe that France, once again, will come out of this stronger and even more certain of their beliefs about the need to fight terrorism. I don't think French people will fall into the trap of associating Muslims and Islam with this distorted view of Islam which terrorists, especially Daesch, represent.

Manuel Valls

We are showing, and we've been doing this for several months, not only our commitment to fighting terrorism, but to fighting all those who are linked to terrorism – radical Islam, Salafist groups, those who incite hatred against the Republic.

Valerie Gauriat

The number of worshipers was scarce, with many unwilling to speak with us. The members of the Muslim community that we have met are worried and angry. They strongly condemned Friday's attacks and called for their community to speak out against the terror committed in the name of Islam.

Matteo Salvini

Immigrants who are out of control do not help security. Of course if the terrorists turn out to be of second, third or fourth generation (of immigrant families) it's even worse because it means that Islam is not compatible and cannot be integrated with democracy.

Benjamin Netanyahu

A crowd which forms at an attack site should evacuate the area and let the emergency services do their job. We've laws in this country.No one should take the law into his own hands. That's the first rule. Secondly, what we see here is a combination of extremist Islam and the Internet. It's Osama bin Laden meets Mark Zuckerberg.

Yousef Saanei

In Islam, there is a principle which says that everything is allowed unless there are strong arguments against it or a law forbidding it.

David Wnendt

What was particularly scary was to see how widespread far-right ideology is. No matter the region or the age group, there were so many people who were against foreigners, against Islam, against democracy. That was the really frightening.

Zoltán Sulok

One way to integrate Muslim refugees is to treat them fairly. That is very important. If I look at this topic from the point of view of our religion, it is of the greatest importance that they can correctly practice and understand their religion, Islam.

Nihad Awad

His (Carson's) views are inconsistent with the United State Constitution. For that we really urge politicians, the general public, community leaders, presidential candidates to repudiate his views and we ask Mr. Ben Carson to withdraw from the presidential race because he's unfit to lead.

Ben Carson

No, I don't, I do not. I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that.

Jorge Fernandez Diez

All the countries are threatened by these barbarians. We have already said that this is not a religious war, but a war of barbarity to all those who oppose to their fanatic interpretation of Islam, that has nothing to do with the real Islam.

Mohammad Ali Movahedi Kermani

It would be naive to imagine that the Great Satan has changed. America is the Great Satan, still hostile toward us: America is the enemy of Islam.

Islam Yousri

They work using chemicals and have oxygen tanks. One of them blew up and – with the mixture of the chemicals – there was an explosion in the whole building.

Rana Dasgupta

It will take long time to get any decision. The nature of the case is time-consuming. The High Court will continue to hear from both parties and then will deliver its verdict.

Shahriar Kabir

After filing the case, we realised that the bench would not be favourable for us, so we did not move further.

Irina Bokova - UNESCO

Palmyra is an unbelievable monument in the middle of the desert. It is a place where we see different cultures. From Rome, Byzantine and Persia, Greece and Islam … We can not permit that Palmyra will be destroyed.

Andrew Solomo

Few people are willing to put themselves in peril to ensure that we are all free to say what we believe. Charlie Hebdo's current staff have persisted, and tonight's award reflects their refusal to accept the curtailment of lawful speech through violence.

Ibrahim Hooper

There is no excuse for an attack of this type, even on an anti-Islam event. We believe even anti-Muslim bigots like Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer and Geert Wilders have the right to air their hatred and bigotry and we have the right to peacefully challenge that bigotry.

Philippe Marlière

There's no multiculturalism in France in the sense of policy and this is another blind alley for French politicians and the media. The fact they cannot understand, they cannot accept, cultural and religious pluralism, notably when it comes to Islam.

Matthew Moran

There is a divide in French society that sees these young people – usually linked to the African countries that form such a big part of France's colonial past – marginalized at the limits of the Republic. They are legitimate members of French society but not accepted as such. Feeling that they have no real stake in society, they ground their identity elsewhere, in extreme cases embracing a radical form of Islam that is far removed from the faith of the majority of French Muslims.

Matthew Moran

This is an insidious and xenophobic rhetoric that often draws a blanket equation between terrorism and Islam. This discourse is not new but the shocking nature of the attacks meant that it perhaps resonated with a wider audience than in the past.

Geert Wilders

You are here together with me because we are PEGIDA. Patriotic Europeans against the Islamisation of the West. We are the people. In my eyes you are heroes.

John Kerry

Our task is encourage the most credible leaders and spokespersons to penetrate the barrier of terrorist lies and to do so over and over and over again.

Michael Milo

He was good in school, and intelligent. I just think he had too many big thoughts in his head. Maybe in the end, he simply had to act on them. He tried to convince me to follow his approach to life. He also gave me an excerpt of the Koran, so I could go home and study it.

Mazen Al-Dalaeen

We ask the international community to increase the military offensive against this terrorist organisation, which is not related to Islam, this brutal organisation, killing innocent people.

Ibrahim Ben Abdelrahman

He became a follower of Jabhat al-Nusra in Syria, ISIS. He developed a takfiri mentality [a Muslim who accuses others of abandoning Islam]. Whenever we spoke to him, he'd forbid everything, say no to everything, accept no debate.

Federica Mogherini - European Union

It is not an issue between Europe, or the West, and Islam. Terrorism and terrorist attacks are targeting mostly Muslims in the world. So we need an alliance, we need a dialogue to face the issue together and we also need to take full responsibility for what we do and what we say and I think that respect is also one of the main core values of the European Union.

Mohammed Shaikhibrahim - Euronews

Charlie Hebdo magazine lost a lot of solidarity among Muslims here after re-publishing the cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad, amid calls from religious institutions to show restraint and a spirit of tolerance.

Manuel Valls

France is not at war against a religion. France is not at war against Islam and Muslims. As it has always done, France will protect all its citizens, those who have a faith and those who don't.

Tariq Ramadan

I think there are many reasons, and the first one, of course, is the way they understand Islam or the way they were taught Islam, in a way which is a binary vision. And it is what we hear coming from Syria and Iraq and some violent extremist groups, (who) are saying Muslims are right so all the other people are wrong and then we are oppressed by the West, France, or by the USA, the West as a whole, and then there is a wrong understanding.

Isabelle Kumar - Euronews

Is Islam being interpreted in an increasingly violent way? There is a very frightening strand of the religion that is developing. Do you think that is here to stay?

Zafer Aknar

They themselves said that they felt alone. That's why they came to us. They came to Istanbul to show that Islam actually is a religion of tolerance. They wanted to say, look in a Muslim country there is a magazine like ours. They cooperated with us to show people that Islam is not what you think. But nobody got that.

Mevlut Cavusoglu

We should struggle against all forms of terror Unfortunately the struggle against terrorism in today's world is insufficient. Our religion is a religion of peace, its meaning is peace so connecting terror to Islam is absolutely wrong.

Hamadi Jebali

Ennahda is not a religious party. I want to tell you this and confirm it officially. It is a civil party.

Tony Blair

What we are confronting here is an evil ideology….it is not a clash of civilisations- all civilised people, Muslim or other, feel revulsion at it. But it is a global struggle.

Angela Merkel

I think the cancellation was a mistake. I don't think self-censorship helps us against people who want to practise violence in the name of Islam.

Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi

Libya consists of tribes and clans. It's not a society with political parties and so on. It's tribes and clans. Everyone knows their duties. This could cause civil war and we will repeat the civil war of 1936.

Terry Jones

Islam is an evil religion, Sharia law is an evil form of justice. On September 11th we are going to have an international burn a Koran day because this book… is not a book of peace.

Mohammad Mukhtar

It is the duty of Muslims to react. When their holy book, the Koran, gets burnt in public, then there is nothing left. If this happens, I think people's first reaction will be to kill any Americans they come across.

Pervez Musharraf

Our strategy must clearly oppose the sinister tendencies to associate terrorism with Islam and discrimination against Muslims, which are giving rise to an ominous alienation between the west and the world of Islam.

Laurent Fabius

ISIL is neither a state, nor representative of Islam, it is a menacing, extremist movement. All those here consider it necessary to push it back and make it disappear.

Birgit van Roessel
Paul Velleman

Wilders does not often refer to Muslims, but Islam. Criticism of a religion is not punishable.

Ihsan Dagi

Turkey has managed to combine Islam with democracy and a market economy. The interest in his visit must be analysed in the right way.

Rachid Ghannouchi

This day is a day of victory. This day is a day of pride. This day is a day of humility. This is the day when Tunisians spoke with one voice in rder to realise the aims of the revolution.

Dorothée Schmid

It's pretty obvious that if we look at the political landscapes in different member states it is linked to the rise of the populist right in Europe, with the rise of group interests, racism and a kind of unease toward Islam, and that means, therefore, a big Muslim country like Turkey is probably considered more foreign than others.

Hassan Nafaa

Egypt now has to establish a modern civil state. If mainstream political Islam decided to take part in that, we would welcome it, but there is a need to define political Islam.

Mohammed Shaikhibrahim - Euronews

Social changes began to appear in Egyptian society after Islamists came to power including the establishment of this kind of cafe committed to the laws of Islam. Perhaps it's the beginning of other changes which will appear in the days ahead.

Abdullah Kinshil

Saif may have returned to the city. There were sightings of him there yesterday. There may also be another key figure, possibly Gaddafi's spokesman Moussa Ibrahim.

Shirin Neshat

My work in a way captures the evolution of Iranian womens' change ever since 1979 – the Islamic Revolution – to 2009's Green Movement. So in my own way I try to sort of tackle that complexity behind the lives of women in Islam.

Saif al-Islam

The injury I have is from a month ago near Wadi Zemzem from the infidel crusader pack and thankfully the Libyans didn't attack us, it was the infidels….

Daniel Zingg

Minarets don't mean integration. Minarets represent a refusal to integrate. The minaret is connected to Islam which does not include tolerance, religious freedom or any other freedom.

Ulrich Schlüer

On one hand Islam is a religion. But on the other hand Islam grants its followers a certain social behaviour. Islam requires its followers to apply certain rules, a certain religious law that we call Sharia. And Sharia law is not at all compatible with our law as it stands today in this country, Switzerland. Our law and Sharia law are at odds with each other.

Yahya Hassan Bajwa

On the other hand we shouldn't forget that Mr. Erdogan was also talking about something else. After a terrorist attack in Turkey, he said that all the big religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam must fight together against terrorism, because terrorism has nothing to do with religion.

Nabil Amr

The atmosphere here in Mecca encouraged Palestinians to go ahead and I am sure that, maybe we will reach the conclusion within 48 hours.

Mohamed Ahmed

We feed orphans and the poor. We fix things between people.

Mohamed Mursi

The majority in the upcoming parliament will form the government – a coalition. We think that will be for the best.

Saif al-Islam

He will be treated as a human being with respect. So far you can make sure that he has been and he will continue to be and also then, he will get his day in court and it will be a just and proper justice applied.

Claude Moniquet

No, I don't believe that because I don't believe that Gaddafi really financed Sarkozy's campaign. After all, we're talking about someone who has been a professional liar for the last 20 or 30 years. I think his son Saif Al Islam takes after his father in this respect so I think that this was pure propoganda as part of a media war aimed at discrediting France.

Ismail Haniyeh - Hamas

The unfolding events known as the Arab Spring – we may even call them the spring of Islam – will be in favour of the Palestinian cause. We will see their positive effects better in the future.

Superior Siluan

Modern Tatarstan is, of course, a combination of two cultures, the Russian Orthodox culture and the Islam-based Tatar culture. At the same time it's clear that these two cultures don't merge into a single one – they remain separate while enriching each other, as has always been the case, a peaceful co-existence.

Liliya Safina

Ancient Bulgars adopted a religion that was new to them – Islam. From this exact place and time Islam started to spread throughout Europe and Siberia.

Hamid Karzai

Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, which is active in Pakistan, has taken the responsibility for this anti-human and anti-Islam action. We are investigating this issue and we are going to talk to the Pakistani government about it.

Shakib Benmakhluf

What happened in Madrid, London or Holland shows that something must be done to stop these people who misunderstand Islam and commit these acts.

Frank Vanhecke

We agree with the objectives of this demonstration. We fear the rise of Islam on our continent.

Geert Wilders

The message was to speak clearly, to speak honestly about issues we have in the Netherlands, not just with high taxes and high crime, but with the problems we face with the multi-cultural society, with the Islamisation of the Netherlands, and I said, well, there is enough islam in the Netherlands.

Muriel Coativy

There is no outright racism but I do think there is a feeling that Islam is favoured over other religions, which is an infringement upon secularism. In some ways it's an attack on freedom.

Salim Frederick

Dear Muslim brothers, there are people who are trying to destroy the confidence that we have in Islam. We need to carry this message from every corner from the east to the west, so that on judgement day we can be proud.

Aiman Mazyek

We want to make clear that terrorists do not speak in the name of Islam.

Saif al-Islam

The Libyan people, they will never ever welcome NATO, we will never ever welcome the Americans here. Libya is not a piece of cake. We are not a Mickey Mouse.

Abdul Majeed

We're protesting here because American soldiers burned our holy Koran in Wardak province. We will continue this protest to make Americans embarrassed about their actions.

Mohammad Atiqul Islam

We have agreed to the new wages after the prime minister assured us she would look into our problems.

Mohammad Atiqul Islam

In the greater interest of our garment sector, we agreed to it. But many small factories cannot afford the rise.

Michèle Alliot-Marie

This has nothing to do with Islam, it is an archaic, and retrograde practice towards women. We have made our position very clear a number of times. But, perversely, it is especially exploited by the far-right to create a sort of confusion, to tell people one cannot distinguish between fanatics and Muslims.

Sayed Jamil

It was in an area where everything belonged to the Americans. It was their rubbish.

Stephane Charbonnier

Islam is the second religion in the country in terms of churchgoers, and in fact nobody knows anything about Mohammed, nobody knows anything about this religion.

Lhaj Thami Breze

We are going to appeal. We are citizens and we are hurt. Charlie Hebdo has made fun of our Prophet and associated Islam and Muslims with terrorism.

Kathleen Van Brempt

The extreme right parties are anti-European but they are also very anti-immigration, very anti-Islam, and that's their core business. The extreme left or far left are less Eurosceptic than the far right.

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.

Abdel Hakim Belhadj

Saadi contacted us and expressed the intention to join the rebels. But we in our turn said the surrender of all the figures of the regime is inevitable.

Geert Wilders

I fear the tsunami of islamisation coming to Europe and the Netherlands and Islam is a violent religion and the Koran is a violent book, so we should stop inviting more Islam to the Netherlands. I believe and I make a distinction between the religion and the people, I don't believe in a European, I don't believe in a moderate Islam – Islam is a wrong religion – but I do believe in people, so I think that we should now try to invest in all the moderate Muslims that fortunately are in a majority already in the Netherlands.

Saeed Jalili

We have said time and again that we seek to expand the power of Islam in the world and diminish the influence of arrogant powers.

Shaun Rusling

The British public will be disgusted with the lenient sentence. It is one law for them and one law for others. If we set fire to a Koran, there'd be uproar.

Youssef Ibraim

Involving Islam in the conflict between the two countries is a mistake. Our situation is already difficult and it is wrong to involve us in another conflict.

Mohammed Ansar

What we have seen is a ratcheting up of tensions, we have seen hysteria about Muslims and Islam, fear and hatred and xenophobia against foreigners and immigrants and, in that political caldron, these kind of sparks can cause real, real damage and that is the danger, that communities do not turn on themselves.

David Cameron

This was not just an attack on Britain and on the British way of life, it was also a betrayal of Islam and of the Muslim communities who give so much to our country.

Albert Toure

They were terrorists, when people call them Muslims, it cheapens the name of Islam. They were terrorists.

Louis Moreno-Ocampo

Libya is now established, it is a new government and they have the right to prosecute Saif and Sennussi here, and in according to our rules the primacy is with the national system. If they conduct the proceedings, the court will not intervene.

Barack Obama

I thought it very important to come to the place where Islam began and to seek His Majesty's counsel and discuss with him many of the issues that we confront here in the Middle East.

Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi

We don't want to kill, we don't want revenge, but you, traitors, mercenaries, you have committed crimes against the Libyan people: leave, go in peace to Egypt.

Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi

Firstly, they've left. You know that at the borders there are crowds who want to return to Egypt. And we with our army and the people we say leave a safe passage for these traitors and the militias. And those who contacted America, Britain and France and those who have asked for the British forces and US army to come back, then those and their families are leaving for Egypt.

Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi

Military operations are over. Within 48 hours everything will be finished. Our forces are almost in Benghazi. Whatever the decision, it will be too late.

Rashed Al Ghannouchi

Tunisia is not a secular country, the language in Tunisia is Arabic and the religion is Islam, we provide guarantees for all Tunisians, whether secular or Islamic, we believe the state is based on the principle of citizenship. People, despite their differences and attitudes, men and women should enjoy equal rights in Tunisia. All are equal before the law regardless of their beliefs.

Malcolm Pearson

I do think he has a right to say what he is saying and particularly in the mother of parliaments, so we are coming at this from the angle of free speech. This man must be allowed to say what he wants and he must answer questions on it and then everyone can make up their minds.

Nazir Ahmed

If you are doing it to provoke and incite hatred and if you are doing it to provoke violence, surely that should not be allowed. In our country, we have banned people like (controversial Muslim cleric) Sheikh (Yusuf) Qaradawi, and many, many dozens of other people, who we thought that might be a threat to national security.

Pastor Terry Jones

Right now we plan to meet with the Imam on Saturday. If we meet with him, we will not burn the Korans.

Omar Bakri Fostock

The pope is not welcome in this country as far as I am concerned. I represent myself and the Islamic views I believe in, because he did insult my religion, insulting my beloved messenger Mohammed – may peace of God be upon him – in his public speech, when he said Islam is an evil call and it is not suitable for humanities, and Mohammed has spread it by force.

Luis Moreno Ocampo - International Criminal Court

The evidence shows that Muammar Gaddafi personally ordered attacks on unarmed Libyan civilians. His second eldest son, Saif al-Islam, is the de facto prime minister. And (Abdullah) al-Sanussi, Gaddafi's brother-in-law, is his right hand man, the executioner, the head of military intelligence. He commanded personally some of the attacks.

Ban Ki-moon - United Nations

The former regime under Gaddafi has reported to the relevant international United Nations organisations on nuclear materials as well as chemical weapons.

Geert Wilders

I think being here today in the United Kingdom is a victory. It's not so much a victory for myself, I'm not that important, but it's a victory for the freedom of speech. I have a problem with the Islamic ideology, the Islamic culture, because I believe that the more Islam we get in our free societies, the less freedom we will get.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

There is a trend of Islamophopia at the moment – this is wrong and based on misconceptions. We would like to promote the friendship of Islam and to show why Islamophobia is so wrong.

Jay Carney

This was a deeply unfortunate incident that does not reflect the great respect that military has for the religious practices of the Afghan people. Our military leaders have apologised, as I mentioned, for this unintentional action and ISAF is leading an investigation to understand what happened.

Barack Obama

Tragedy has brought us together. I have always said that our fight is with Al Qaeda and its affiliates and not with Islam or any other religion. This country was built as a beacon of freedom and tolerance. That's what made us strong – now and forever.

Mohammed Ansar

What we have seen is a ratcheting up of tensions. We have seen hysteria about Muslims and Islam, fear and hatred and xenophobia against foreigners and immigrants and, in that political cauldron, these kind of sparks can cause real, real damage and that is the danger, that communities do not turn on themselves.

Benjamin Netanyahu

The state of Israel faces huge challenges and I have to tell you this honestly before the elections. Iran is still advancing in its nuclear programme. Hezbollah and Hamas equip themselves with rockets. Radical Islam is taking over the region. It makes regimes collapse one after the other.
