Simon Jenkins
We committed armed aggression against sovereign peoples who had not attacked us, claiming our motive was ‘to keep terror off the streets of Britain’Jeremy Corbyn is perfectly right to relate this week’s Manchester terrorist atrocity to British foreign policy in the Middle East. Whenever Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and David Cameron struggled to explain why British blood and finance had to go on toppling regimes in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, they were explicit: it was “to prevent terrorism in the streets of Britain”. The reason was given over and again: to suppress militant Islam.feedback

Mehdi Hasan

Donald “Islam hates us” Trump will be back soon. He hasn’t gone anywhere.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We are not here to lecture – we are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship. Instead, we are here to offer partnership – based on shared interests and values – to pursue a better future for us all. Young Muslim boys and girls should be able to grow up free from fear, safe from violence and innocent of hatred. And young Muslim men and women should have the chance to build a new era of prosperity for themselves and their peoples. Islam hates us? Terrorists do not worship God. They worship death.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We are not here to lecture. We are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship. Instead, we are here to offer partnership – based on shared interests and values – to pursue a better future for us all. Islam "one of the world's great faiths. 95 percent of the victims of terrorist attacks are themselves Muslims.feedback

Barack Obama

Civilization's debt to Islam. All people yearn for certain things: the ability to speak your mind and have a say in how you are governed; confidence in the rule of law and the equal administration of justice; government that is transparent and doesn't steal from the people; the freedom to live as you choose. Those are not just American ideas, they are human rights, and that is why we will support them everywhere.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I think Islam hates us. These are people that push gays off buildings. These are people that kill women and treat women horribly, and yet you take their money. It "a battle between good and evil. Tell Saudi Arabia and others that we want (demand!) free oil for the next ten years or we will not protect their private Boeing 747s. Pay up!feedback

Donald J. Trump

I think Islam hates us. It was just one of a series of inflammatory statements about one of the world's major religions that included a call to surveille mosques and a proposal to ban all foreign Muslims from entering the U.S. . Frankly, look, we're having problems with the Muslims, and we're having problems with Muslims coming into the country. You need surveillance, you have to deal with the mosques whether we like it or not. These attacks, they're not done by Swedish people, that I can tell you.feedback

Abdullah Jaffat

He is trying now to change his real face by wearing a mask of the moderate president who takes care of Islam and Muslims. Therefore, what has been said in the summit are just words.feedback

Nihad Awad

We welcome President Trump's recognition of Islam as 'one of the world's great faiths,' but that recognition does not wipe out years of well-documented anti-Islam animus. The president should also recognize the contributions American Muslims make – and have made for generations – to the betterment of our nation.feedback

Donald J. Trump

That was a tremendous day. Tremendous investments in the United States. Hundreds of billions of dollars of investments into the United States and jobs, jobs, jobs. I think Islam hates us. There is a tremendous hatred there. We have to get to the bottom of it.feedback

George W. Bush

These acts of violence against innocents violate the fundamental tenets of the Islamic faith. And it's important for my fellow Americans to understand that. The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam. That's not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace. These terrorists don't represent peace. They represent evil and war.feedback

Bill Clinton

We both know it is profoundly wrong to equate Palestinians, in particular, and Islam, in general, with terrorism or to see a fundamental conflict between Islam and the West. For the vast majority of the more than one billion Muslims in the world, tolerance is an article of faith and terrorism a travesty of faith.feedback

Ronald Reagan - Challenger

I might add that Colonel Qadhafi's expectation of unquestioned support from the Islamic world strikes me as hypocritical. Nowhere is the slaughter of Muslim people greater than in Afghanistan, and yet Colonel Qadhafi allies himself with those perpetrating this crime on Islam and all of mankind.feedback

Bill Clinton

I hope that the next time an American President addresses a nation with a Muslim tradition, he will be able to say that the progress of Indonesia and Nigeria and Morocco, all very different nations, has helped all of us put the lie to the tired claim of an inherent clash of civilizations. We know the traditional values of Islam, devotion to faith and good works, to family and society, are in harmony with the best of American ideals.feedback

George W. Bush

Radical Islam [was] the perversion by a few of a noble faith into an ideology of terror and death.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Anyone who cannot name our enemy is not fit to lead this country. Anyone who cannot condemn the hatred, oppression and violence of radical Islam lacks the moral clarity to serve as our president. Frankly, look, we're having problems with the Muslims, and we're having problems with Muslims coming into the country. You need surveillance, you have to deal with the mosques whether we like it or not. These attacks, they're not done by Swedish people, that I can tell you.feedback

Mustafa Akyol

You talk about women and women's rights. These are people that push gays off business – off buildings. These are people that kill women and treat women horribly, and yet you take their money.feedback

Shadi Hamid

No one is going into this thinking that Trump is good on Islam. We're all going into it with the opposite idea. Those low expectations might work in Trump's favor because as long as he takes care to avoid saying something terribly offensive, it might be seen as neutral or even positive.feedback

Sadek Hamid

Let's not forgot this is the man who stated last year that 'Islam hates us' and introduced the 'Muslim travel ban' on refugees and restricted visa applications from a list of Muslim majority countries.feedback

Fahad Nazer

I think there is a wide disconnect between the perceptions of casual observers and the assessments of U.S. counterterrorism officials.feedback

David Andrew Weinberg

I don't think there is anything close to convincing evidence proving Saudi Arabia helped perpetrate 9/11. Saudi Arabia certainly has problems with its government's treatment of women and LGBT individuals, but it does not push gay people off of buildings.feedback

Donald J. Trump

It's going to be very profound having to do with Saudi Arabia and Saudi Arabia's role on the World Trade Center and the attack.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I think Islam hates us. There's a tremendous hatred there. Frankly, Saudi Arabia has not treated us fairly, because we are losing a tremendous amount of money in defending Saudi Arabia.feedback

Dennis Ross

Islamist is an ideology, Islam is a religion. Islamists are using Islam for the purpose of controlling power, policy, and every aspect of one's life. So when you say 'radical Islamists,' that's language that will resonate quite well with his hosts and quite well with his base.feedback

H.R. McMaster

He will meet and have lunch with leaders of more than 50 Muslim countries, where he will deliver an inspiring, direct speech on the need to confront radical ideology and the president's hopes for a peaceful vision of Islam. The speech is intended to unite the broader Muslim world against common enemies of all civilization and to demonstrate America's commitment to our Muslim partners.feedback

Marwa Mohamed

It is important to wake people up and show them that Islam is not that. It's not all terrorism and war. There are lots of dramatic stories in it as well.feedback

Neal Katyal

Just happened to disappear moments before the Fourth Circuit argument last week. That's the million-dollar question. Is this executive order, viewed from the standpoint of an objective observer, an establishment of a disfavored religion, Islam?feedback

Sohrab Mostaghim

Instead of welcoming the extra visitors and this fun game, he pressured us, claiming our promotional video was against Islam, since at the end the brother and sister hug. Now, he is asking us for bribes to allow us to use the park. We are not even sure if he will really allow us if we pay. But we don't have that here.feedback

David N. Saperstein

To the extent that you write off an entire religion like Islam and everyone connected with it, it undercuts the ability to achieve the very goals that such rhetoric is hoping to achieve.feedback

Paul Nuttall

It is a death cult, born and steeped in fourteen hundred years of violence and bloodshed, that propagates itself by intimidation, violence and conquest. I think he's got his terminology wrong, OK. I think Islamic fundamentalism is a cancer within our society, I don't think Islam itself is a death cult (in) any way, shape or form. I would never personally describe Islam in that way. They obviously were upset, but because it brought the whole thing to the fore again, it was all over the national media and I totally understand that.feedback

Hugo Brennan - Verisk Maplecroft

The case highlights their concerns about the lack of rule of law and an increasingly fractious political environment. The Jakarta gubernatorial election result and the Ahok trial verdict will embolden hardline Islamists and indicates their increasing political influence. But it is overstating events to equate this with the death of moderate Islam in Indonesia.feedback

Paul Nuttall

They obviously were upset, but because it brought the whole thing to the fore again, it was all over the national media and I totally understand that. I would never personally describe Islam in that way.feedback

Moazzam Malik

I admire his work for Jakarta. Don't believe he's anti-Islam. My prayers are with his family. Leaders must safeguard tolerance and harmony.feedback

Melissa Crouch

Religion has become politicized in local elections, and we saw that emerge in a big way in the election for governor in Jakarta. Democracy gives a greater space to everyone, including greater space for radical Islam.feedback

Donald J. Trump

It is there that we will begin to construct a new foundation of cooperation and support with our Muslim allies to combat extremism, terrorism and violence, and to embrace a more just and hopeful future for young Muslims in their countries. It is a gift from God. We are a nation of believers. Faith is deeply embedded into the history of our country. These visits will take place ahead of the NATO G-7 meetings and will begin with a truly historic gathering in Saudi Arabia with leaders from all across the Muslim world. Saudi Arabia is the custodian of the two holiest sites in Islam.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Saudi Arabia is the custodian of the two holiest sites in Islam and it is there that we will begin to construct a new foundation of co-operation and support with our Muslim allies to combat extremism, terrorism and violence and to embrace a more just and hopeful future for young Muslims in their countries. Our task is not to dictate to others how to live but to build a coalition of friends and partners who share the goal of fighting terrorism and bringing safety, opportunity and stability to the war-ravaged Middle East.feedback

Marine Le Pen

The French are not Islamophobic, but radical Islam is scary.feedback

Donald J. Trump

My first foreign trip as president of the United States will be to Saudi Arabia, then Israel, and then to a place that my cardinals love very much, Rome. He "will begin with a truly historic gathering in Saudi Arabia with leaders from all across the Muslim world. Saudi Arabia is the custodian of the two holiest sites in Islam. It is there we will begin to construct a new foundation of cooperation and support with our Muslim allies to combat extremism, terrorism and violence and to embrace a more just and hopeful future for young Muslims in their countries.feedback

Sarah Henry

We're trying to reveal the history and the facts. The history is that Islam has been woven into the history of the city for as long as there's been a city here. It's never been monolithic. It's more variegated and complex.feedback

Gerard Batten

[Islam] is a death cult, born and steeped in 1,400 years of violence and bloodshed, that propagates itself by intimidation, violence and conquest. The terrorists are the vanguard of Mohammedanism. They set out to cow the non-Mohammedan population, so that the 'moderate Muslims' can get on establishing sharia courts, forcing halal food in school and works canteens, and making the authorities look the other way regarding criminal activities for fear of being called racist and Islamophobic. A phobia is an irrational fear. A normal non-Mohammedan should have a perfectly rational fear of 'Islam.feedback

Usman Raja

This is fighting. When you are in the prison environment that these guys are coming from, you are validating yourself in that arena with violence. When I first embraced Islam, the first sense that I got was a sense of brotherhood, you know? And certain individuals, they would exploit that.feedback

Boulos Halim

After all the pain we have experienced ... we are satisfied and confident that the state is taking strong security measures to prevent terrorism and protect churches. It's in the state's interests to protect its nationals and the Copts are not an independent people, they are part and parcel of the nation itself.feedback

Leonardo Sandri

It's an encounter of consolation, promotion and communion with the small Catholic community. But it's of great importance from an ecumenical point of view. And, of course, it is very important for dialogue with Islam, for the meeting with the sheikh of Al-Ahzar. It is necessary to have a very strong protection of Christians – they are citizens with religious rights. Especially from a point of view of religious freedom, we must consider all citizens the same.feedback

Samir Khalil Samir

So he simply passed to other things. His knowledge of Islam is limited to the nice discussions he had with the imam.feedback

Layla Yusuf

To me, religion is something intimate and private. Immigrant women struggle more than men to find a place in Italian society, because many of them just stay home with the kids and never learn the language. In my experience working with them, I found that immigrant women from Muslim countries, and especially from the Maghreb, are often pressured to stay home by jealous husbands who use a strict interpretation of Islam as an excuse.feedback

Olivier Roy

There is an Arab culture, a Turkish culture, an Indonesian culture and so forth, which of course have been influenced by Islam. But there's no such thing as a Muslim secular culture.feedback

Derek Holloway

Sadly, and dangerously, the right of withdrawal from RE is now being exploited by a range of 'interest groups' often using a dubious interpretation of human rights legislation. The right of withdrawal form RE now gives comfort to those who are breaking the law and seeking to incite religious hatred. Through RE teacher social media forums and feedback from our RE advisers, I am aware that some parents have sought to exploit the right to withdraw children from RE lessons. This is seemingly because they do not want their children exposed to other faiths and world views, in particular Islam.feedback

Pope Francis

I hope that it may also offer a valid contribution to inter-religious dialogue with the Islamic world, and to ecumenical dialogue with the venerated and beloved Coptic Orthodox Church. Our world, torn by blind violence, which has also afflicted the heart of your dear land – needs peace, love and mercy.feedback

David Cameron

Obviously I regret the personal consequences for me. I loved being prime minister. I thought I was doing a reasonable job. But I think it was the right thing. The lack of a referendum was poisoning British politics and so I put that right. And that was to me the biggest problem with President Trump's travel ban. It would be seen, could be seen, as labelling whole countries as extreme and dangerous because they were predominantly Islamic. It's not a clash between civilisations that we face. That is what the extremists want us to think. This is, if you like, a war within Islam.feedback

Tareq Oubrou

It's religion's job to institute reform and to respect the laws of the republic.feedback

Mohammad Iqbal

It's good to be God-fearing no matter how you approach it. Whether it's the Bible, whether it's Koran, whether it's Torah, whether it's some other book. But it should be optional, not enforced. If the parents have no objection and the student has no objection, it is okay.feedback

Ramzan Kadyrov

Under Islam, lying with a man is a sin. People don't approve of homosexuals here in Chechnya. If anybody tries to start a gay movement here, they will be killed.feedback

Marine Le Pen

Our country France has once again had the barbarity of a terrorist assault in the heart of our capital. Once again it was the police who were targeted and paid for the fight against radical Islam with their blood. It is a monstrous ideology which has declared war on our nation, on our reason, and on our civilisation.feedback

François Fillon

This battle for the freedom and security of the French must be the priority of the next government. It will require an unyielding determination and a cool head. Radical Islam is challenging our values and our strength of character. We are at war, there is no alternative, it's us or them.feedback

François Fillon

In the fight against militant Islam, like on everything else, Emmanuel Macron stance's is blurry.feedback

Omar Abu Layla

We are simple people, and they talked to us using religion. They are Islam ... But they don't know how to implement it. They take what they want from Islam.feedback

Rainbow Murray

She's tried to refrain some of the anti-Muslim sentiment by trying to pass it off as a form of feminism and suggesting that Islam is oppressive for women and that Sharia law would oppress women. It's a way of trying to legitimize her actions by saying, It's not that we're prejudiced against a particular group, it's just that I'm standing up for women's rights, I'm defending French values, and one of those values is women's rights.feedback

Farid Aït-Ouarab

When Marine Le Pen says that imams should be preaching in French, she's right – that's normal. This is France. Islam is about doing things together – in a circle, by consensus. We see exactly that in the National Assembly, in the Senate, where deputies gather to decide our laws in tandem, together. For a real Muslim, there is no difference between 'French' and 'Muslim.feedback

Andrew Lebovich

There was certainly some opposition to Senghor as himself and Senghor as a Christian, but he was able to leverage and co-opt other groups of Muslims in order to support his rule.feedback

Shadi Hamid

The argument that a non-Muslim cannot be governor of a city, that's not something we should take at face value, even among Islamists, let alone Muslims more broadly.feedback

Jeremy Menchick

This is not a 'Muslim problem'. How many Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists have been President of the U.S. or even in Congress? How did the Jewish and evangelical community react to [Muslim congressman Keith] Ellison being a candidate for [Democratic National Committee] chair? How do Arab parties fare in Israel? Or Muslim politicians in the Philippines?feedback

Andrew Lebovich

Muslims, like Christians, like Jews, choose what role religion plays in their lives and in their politics, and these things evolve over time. Even if there is a religious injunction, people decide how seriously to take it.feedback

Nadia Marzouki

For a majority of Americans and Europeans, Islam remains an opaque object that one is unable to think of in any way other than as a problem, threat, or retrograde legal code.feedback

Syed Abdul Mukit

My family, friends and our community and political leaders are making efforts to build awareness so that no other father or mother loses a child to such violence.feedback

Tony Lynes

We are still keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at that time and might have seen what happened or who has any information about the circumstances. Officers are keeping an open mind about a possible motive.feedback

Syed Abdul Mukit

My son, Syed Jamanoor Islam, was stabbed to death on Tuesday 11th April at the corner of our home in East London. We lost our first son in his mother's arms and no family ever wants to lose a child in that manner. We would like to see full justice and those guilty to be punished to the maximum extent of the law. It is about time we as community members stand up against violence, injustice and hate in the community. I am requesting each and every family in the country to address this important issue of the rise in crime in particular knife crime in our society.feedback

Andrew Neil - BBC

The Claimant had recently promoted and encouraged religious violence by telling Muslims that violence in support of Islam would constitute a man's greatest deed.feedback

Hassan Rouhani

Once again, I am here for Iran, for Islam, for freedom and for more stability in this country. I am urging all Iranians to vote for Iran and for Islam. From today, protecting the nuclear deal is one of my main plans in political and economic fields.feedback

Tareq Oubrou

We have to take Islam out of the context of ancient Arab-Muslim civilizations and adapt it to a modern, globalized, secular society, like France.feedback

Gerard Batten

Normal non Mohammedans should have a perfectly rational fear of Islam. The terrorists are the vanguard of Mohammedanism. They set out to cow the non-Mohammedan population, so that the 'moderate Muslims' can get on establishing Sharia courts, forcing halal food in school and works canteens, and making the authorities look the other way regarding criminal activities for fear of being called racist and Islamophobic.feedback

Hasan Minhaj - The Daily Show

Donald Trump is an extremist leader who came out of nowhere. He's self-financed, recruits through social media, attracts his followers with a radical ideology to take over the world, and is actively trying to promote a war between Islam and the West . . . That's right, Trevor. Donald Trump is white ISIS. WISIS.feedback

Austin Ruse - Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute

The problem is whether largely secular Europe possesses the will to stop the new Muslim invasion. Catholic Europe stopped Islam at Vienna once before, but Europe is hardly Catholic anymore.feedback

Sinta Nuriyah

They have to be confronted. If they aren't, they will take heart and become even bolder.feedback

Sinta Nuriyah

It isn't easy erasing teachings that have already penetrated deeply.feedback

Sinta Nuriyah

I'm someone who if there's something I want, then I've got to have it.feedback

Sinta Nuriyah

We didn't need to act or wear clothes like we were kings. Because the people we are facing down aren't foreigners, but are from our own nation.feedback

Sinta Nuriyah

I wanted to look into the extent to which religion shapes the lives of women, and also the extent to which women influenced religion.feedback

Sinta Nuriyah

Reach out to the regional district head. All people have the right to worship God, not just some people. That's the truth in Islam. Because we're all siblings. We have to always look out for one another. I was too young, and love hadn't blossomed yet. Mankind shouldn't always fail in life. If right now you're failing in your studies, then you shouldn't also fail in love. Just like General Sudirman struggled for an independent Indonesia, I struggled for my own future. My friend had 16 kids, because her husband was a prominent preacher who wanted to have 25 children.feedback

Shinta Ratri

There's nobody else in Indonesia like her, who cares this much about marginalized groups.feedback

Julia Kloeckner

An 'Islam law' can place the rights and duties of Muslims living in Germany on a new legal basis.feedback

Amy Hawthorne

If Trump is really interested in getting the Egyptians to fight radical Islam, giving them more tanks will not help our goals.feedback

Juliet Kleber

Fear has always been Homeland's modus operandi. Its first season told the story of an American soldier who has been converted to Islam and brainwashed into conducting a terrorist attack against his own people. The fear of Islam is mental, spiritual, physical; it is all-encompassing. With Season 6, Homeland's central plot for the first time is not about trying to prevent an attack by Islamic terrorists. But, as in real life, fear of the other cannot so easily transition to a wholehearted embrace.feedback

Melisa Domínguez Ruiz

I agree with her in her position on immigration and radical Islam.feedback

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

The death of Qari Yasin is evidence that terrorists who defame Islam and deliberately target innocent people will not escape justice.feedback

David Shariatmadari

It’s a question even liberals can find themselves asking after attacks such as the one in Westminster. But the answer can’t be yes – and here’s why. Since the Westminster attacks, many people seem to have been getting stuck on the following question, as they do after most acts of jihadi violence: “Is there something special about Islam? Something that lends itself to terrorism?”.feedback

Lindsey Graham

To everybody that boos Judge Gorsuch, you're not persuading me at all. As a matter of fact, if you can't understand this is a qualified nominee, then you're not listening. In fact, most Muslims hate radical Islam more than you do because they're the ones getting killed the most. Let's realize that the election didn't go the way some of you wanted, and there's another one coming. I realize that I haven't voted for a winning president in 12 years, but my obligations are the same to those who win the job, (and that's) to try to help them when I can.feedback

Sarah Waseem

When an attack happens in London, it is an attack on me. It is an attack on all of us. Islam totally condemns violence of any sort. This is abhorrent to us.feedback

Ali Kahn

He was a convert. And his crimes are not connected to our religion. If he did this in the name of Islam, he didn't understand our religion.feedback

David Videcette

His age is surprising as most terrorists are radicalised at a much younger age. It would be my assessment that he has probably had quite a troubled past, with involvement in drink or drugs leading him into criminality. Then at some point, possibly in the last decade, he has converted to Islam and changed his name. Then it appears that he has fallen under the malign influence of others who have encouraged or persuaded him to carry out this attack, possibly for money for his family.feedback

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.feedback

Tommy Robinson

This is the reality. The reality is these people are waging war on us. This has been going on for 1,400 years, this is nothing new, and while it's going on the police leaders and the political leaders want to invite more. They want to invite more. The truth is Islam is at war. The truth is Islam is a fascist violent ideology.feedback

Khalid Mahmood

We have to condemn this outright. There are no ifs or buts. This is a hugely tragic incident. These people do not belong to any faith. They certainly don't belong to my faith of Islam.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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!feedback

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.feedback

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!feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Koen Vossen

This is not the behavior of a man who is trying to become a coalition partner.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Ben Sasse

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

Angela Merkel

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

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.feedback

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.feedback

Pepijn Bergsen

He does not want to be in power – what does he have to gain?feedback

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.feedback

Geert Wilders

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

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.feedback

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.feedback

Donald J. Trump

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

Derrick Watson

Mr. Trump was asked, 'Is there a war between the West and radical Islam, or between the West and Islam itself?' He replied: 'It's very hard to separate. Because you don't know who's who,'.feedback

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.feedback

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.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

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.feedback

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.feedback

Simon Milner

These pages in and of themselves do not violate because we make it clear that you can criticise religions. You cannot express hate against people because of their religion. So Ban Islam is a page which is designed to criticise Islam as a religion. It is not expressly, in and of itself, designed to attack Muslims. To suggest we are in some way negligent or not caring about this issue is simply not true.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Andrej Zaslove

It really begins with the death of Pim Fortuyn. He [Fortuyn] said we have to talk about Islam, we have to talk about migration, and we have to talk about it in the context that this is threatening Dutch liberalism–and this caught on like wildfire because it was a way of talking about it that wasn't seen as extreme.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

The West has thrown off its mask in the past days. What we have seen is a clear manifestation of Islamophobia. I have said that I had thought Nazism was over, but that I was wrong. Nazism is alive in the West.feedback

Mark Rutte

We've ended up in a bad movie. The Turks have ramped this up themselves.feedback

Geert Wilders

The Netherlands can see that these people are Turks, not Dutch. They have Dutch passports, but they don't belong here.feedback

Cas Mudde

The explanation for the Dutch-Turkish 'crisis' this weekend is pretty straightforward. Both countries are currently engulfed in electoral campaigns that are dominated by authoritarian nativism.feedback

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”.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Faiza Mushtaq

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

Humaira Iqbal

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

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Jan de Boer

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

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.feedback

Jesse Klaver

This year is not only about the election in the Netherlands, but elections in the whole of Europe. In the Netherlands, we have to show that populism can be stopped and there is an alternative. That alternative is us. The values the Netherlands stands for, for many, many decades, centuries actually, its freedom, its tolerance, its empathy. ..they are destroying it. It's terrible when people are born in the Netherlands have the feeling they are not part of this society and it is not something to be proud of, but something to be ashamed of. And I want to change that.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

The threat of radical Shiite Islam threatens us no less than it does the region and the peace of the world, and I know that we are partners in the desire to prevent any kind of victory by radical Islam of any sort.feedback

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 [].feedback

Cas Mudde

I think it is impossible to maintain, as Wilders does, that living under 24/7 protection and safe houses for 13 years has not affected him. He has hardened on Islam and on those 'defending' Islam. His struggle with 'Global Islam' has a clear personal aspect, which further polarizes him.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

We need King Salman to make a clear and bold statement denouncing radicalism.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback
