All quotes about Terrorism

Muhammad Khursheed

It was incredibly emotional ... for us especially as Muslim citizens. We will stand together in spite of oppression, terrorism. A strong, powerful message today.feedback

Fiyaz Mughal

Therefore, who is attacked through terrorism seems to be related to how much of a blowback effect there will be against communities and Muslims, if a member of the community is the perpetrator. So each situation is unique, but Manchester clearly affects us all given that innocent young children and their parents were targeted.feedback

Ian Fenn

We are a Manchester school. We feel the pain that Manchester feels. We stand shoulder to shoulder with our fellow Mancunians against terrorism in all its forms. Our deepest condolences go to all who have been affected by this outrage.feedback

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

NATO joining the coalition will also provide a better platform for coordinating the activities of NATO allies ... in the fight against terrorism. It sends a strong and clear message of unity in the fight against terrorism and especially in light of the terrorist attacks in Manchester.feedback

Tom Hardy

What happened last night at the AG concert in Manchester was a tragedy; families and children attacked and murdered; in a place where they should be safe and enjoying a concert. It is an inconceivable atrocity. There is no bringing back those who have been lost, pointlessly, in such a cowardly and brutal fashion. I am truly saddened by what I have witnessed and there is no doubt that Terrorism is an evil thing.feedback

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

I expect Nato allies to step up and agree to do more in the fight against terrorism, not least because of what we saw in Manchester on Monday. [Nato membership of the Coalition would] send a strong and clear message of unity in fight against terrorism and in light of attacks in Manchester it's important that we send this clear message that we are united in the fight against terrorism.feedback

Mahmoud Abbas

I would like to reiterate to your excellency Mr President our commitment to cooperate with you in order to make peace and forge a historic peace deal with the Israelis. And we would like to reassert our willingness to continue to work with you as partners in fighting terrorism in our region and the world.feedback

Michael McCaul

I wonder if there's some connection between these visits and how he's condemned the radical Islamist terror, and then the response we see in Manchester.feedback

Theresa May

I do not want to unduly alarm the members of the public. This morning, I said that the joint terrorism analysis center – the independent organization responsible for setting the threat level on the basis of the intelligence available – was keeping the threat level under constant review. It has now concluded, on the basis of today's investigations, that the threat level should be increased for the time being from severe to critical. It is a possibility that we cannot ignore that there is a wider group of individuals linked to this attack. The terrorists will never win and we will prevail.feedback

Mary Mcdaid

Proud to be a Manc, nothing and no-one will ever divide us. We stand together against terrorism.feedback

Yoshihide Suga

We have strengthened our position by establishing an information-gathering unit dedicated to international terrorism.feedback

Brandon Ross - BTIG

It is an absolutely terrible tragedy. But we have unfortunately had to learn to be resilient to these type of events. I expect any pressure on both the business and the stock to be short lived.feedback

Jack Tomarchio

He was principal deputy undersecretary of Homeland Security for intelligence during George W. Bush's presidency. It's a chess game.feedback

Sadiq Khan

This was a cowardly act of terrorism. I am in constant contact with the Metropolitan Police, who are reviewing security arrangements in London. Londoners will see more police on our streets today.feedback

Arlene Foster

Terrorism must never win. For something like that to happen while young people are out enjoying themselves is unthinkable.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I was gratified that President Abbas joined the summit and committed to taking firm but necessary steps to fight terrorism and confront its hateful ideology. It's so interesting that our meeting took place on this very horrible morning of death to innocent young people. Peace can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded and even rewarded. President Abbas assures me he is ready to work towards that goal in good faith, and Prime Minister Netanyahu has promised the same. I look forward to working with these leaders toward a lasting peace.feedback

Brian Hopkins - Forrester Research

An emergency number is available for those who are concerned about loved ones or anyone who may have been in the area. It is 0161 856 9400. W are currently treating this as a terrorist incident until we know otherwise. We are working closely with the national counter terrorism policing network and intelligence partners. I want to thank people for thir support and would ask them to remain vigilant and if thy have any concerns report them in confidnce to us through the Anti Terrorist Hotline 0800 789321.feedback

Yoshihide Suga

If this is a terrorist attack, such abhorrent acts of terrorism cannot be justified for any reason, and Japan firmly condemns such an act of terrorism. I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to the victims and families of the deceased and my prayers to a swift recovery for the wounded. Japan stands in solidarity with the people of the U.K.feedback

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

My thoughts are w/ the young people & all affected in barbaric #Manchester attack. #NATO stands with the UK in the fight against terrorism.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The president reassured the Prime Minister that Americans stand with the people of the United Kingdom and that our resolve will never waver in the face of terrorism. He offered American aid in the United Kingdom's investigation and vowed to continue the mutual fight against terrorism.feedback

Austen Ivereigh

He will be looking to develop a relationship of trust which can later be used by both or either of them to help people or help the church. It is not about sitting down and talking about immigration or Islamic terrorism.feedback

Bahram Qasemi

Artificial alliances would not stop the expansion of cancerous terrorism in the world.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We must drive out the terrorists and the extremists from our midsts, obliterate this evil ideology and protect and defend our citizens and people of the world. All civilized nations must be united in this effort. This trip is focused on that goal, bringing nations together around the goal of defeating the terrorism that threatens the world and crushing the hateful ideology that drives it so hard and seems to be driving it so fast. I make this promise to you. My administration will always stand with Israel.feedback

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

It breaks my heart to think that, once again, terrorism has sought to instil fear where there should be joy, to sow division where young people and families should be coming together in celebration. I would like to convey my deepest sympathies to Prime Minister May and to the British people. Today we mourn with you. Tomorrow we will work side by side with you to fight back against those who seek to destroy our way of life. They underestimate ours and your resilience - these cowardly attacks will only strengthen our commitment to work together to defeat the perpetrators of such vile acts.feedback

Michael Adebolajo

The images we hold in our minds should not be those of senseless slaughter but of the ordinary men and women who put concerns about their own safety to one side and rushed to help. Of the men and women of the emergency services who worked tirelessly to bring comfort, to help and to save lives. Of the messages of solidarity and hope of all those who opened their homes to the victims. For they are the images that embody the spirit of Manchester and the spirit of Britain, a spirit that through years of conflict and terrorism has never been broken and will never be broken.feedback

Michael Adebolajo

An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. The threat level remains at severe. That means that a terrorist attack remains highly likely but the independent joint terrorism analysis centre which sets the threat level on the basis of the intelligence available to them will continue to assess this throughout today and in the days ahead. Later today I will travel to Manchester to meet the chief constable of Greater manchester Police Ian Hopkins, the Mayor of Greater manchester Andy Burnham and members of the emergency services who have come to Manchester's aid in its moment of need.feedback

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

It breaks my heart to think that, once again, terrorism has sought to instil fear where there should be joy, to sow division where young people and families should be coming together in celebration. Today we mourn with you. Tomorrow we will work side by side with you to fight back against those who seek to destroy our way of life. These cowardly attacks will only strengthen our commitment to work together to defeat the perpetrators of such vile acts. Today we all express our solidarity with the victims of the terrible Manchester terrorist attack.feedback

Donald J. Trump

This groundbreaking new center represents a clear declaration that Muslim-majority countries must take the lead in combatting radicalization, and I want to express our gratitude to King Salman for this strong demonstration of leadership. We must be united in pursuing the one goal that transcends every other consideration. That goal is to meet history's great test – to conquer extremism and vanquish the forces of terrorism.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We have before us a rare opportunity to bring security and stability and peace to this region and its people, defeating terrorism and creating a future of harmony, prosperity and peace, but we can only get there working together. There is no other way. What's happened with Iran has brought many of the other parts of the Middle East toward Israel, and you could say that if there's a benefit, that would be the benefit. I've seen such a different feeling toward Israel from countries that, as you know, were not feeling so well about Israel not so long ago. It's brought a lot of folks together.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Most importantly, the United States and Israel can declare with one voice that Iran must never be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon – never, ever – and must cease its deadly funding, training and equipping of terrorists and militias, and it must cease immediately. Many expressed their resolve to help end terrorism and the spread of radicalisation. Many Muslim nations have already taken steps to begin following through on this commitment. There is a growing realisation among your Arab neighbours that they have common cause with you in the threat posed by Iran.feedback

Monika Bickert - Facebook

We feel responsible to our community to keep them safe and we feel very accountable. It's absolutely our responsibility to keep on top of it. It's a company commitment. We will continue to invest in proactively keeping the site safe, but we also want to empower people to report to us any content that breaches our standards.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

Onto the second stop, Tel Aviv, home of Judaism, obviously, second of the great religions the president is going to also ask to join with all of us in this fight against terrorism, and his fight against these forces of evil, then onto an audience with the pope to discuss religious freedom. The wall is part of Jerusalem. Well, I think that's for a future discussion.feedback

Hassan Rouhani

Who can say regional stability can be restored without Iran? The Americans do not know our region, that's what the catch is. Those who provide consultations or advice to the Americans, unfortunately, they are the rulers who either push America awry or with money, they just buy some people in America. You can't solve terrorism just by giving your people's money to a superpower. The Iranian people voted for moderation as they know a prosperous economy and jobs can only happen through investment, and investment through freedom and interaction with the world.feedback

Alan Barry

He should quite clearly state that he has no links or alliance to the provisional IRA, that his loyalties lie with the men and women of this country who went to Northern Ireland and fought terrorism.feedback

Monika Bickert - Facebook

We have a really diverse global community and people are going to have very different ideas about what is okay to share. No matter where you draw the line, there are always going to be some grey areas. For instance, the line between satire and humour and inappropriate content is sometimes very grey. It is very difficult to decide whether some things belong on the site or not.feedback

Donald J. Trump

When we see the scenes of destruction in the wake of terror, we see no signs that those murdered were Jewish or Christian, Shiite or Sunni. When we look upon the streams of innocent blood soaked into the ancient ground, we cannot see the faith or sect or tribe of the victims. We see only that they were children of God, whose deaths are an insult to all that is holy. Muslim nations must be willing to take on the burden if we are going to defeat terrorism and send its wicked ideology into oblivion.feedback

Hassan AbdulKerim Shehalb

He mentioned before that he is going to deal in a tough way with terrorists and extremists. I hope he is going to succeed in his goal to eliminate terrorism in Iraq and the region. We have no other option now; we have to join Trump's coalition.feedback

Jamil al-Saleh

He is telling Russia that all your partners in the Syrian theater are the very definition of terrorism.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

I think the way you address those human rights issues and women's rights issues is to improve conditions in the region. And today those conditions in the region are under a lot of stress because of the threat of terror. The threat that Iran poses to the instability in the region. And these subjects are being discussed as well. There are efforts underway to, I think, improve the rights of women – the participation of women in society and throughout the region. But you know the primary reason we are here today is to confront this threat of terrorism.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

Rex W. Tillerson

What I would hope is that Rouhani now has a new term and that he uses that term to begin a process of dismantling Iran's network of terrorism, dismantling its financing of the terrorist network, dismantling of the manning and the logistics and everything that they provide to these destabilizing forces that exist in this region. We also hope that he puts an end to [Iran's] ballistic missile testing. We also hope that he restores the rights of Iranians to freedom of speech, to freedom of organization, so that Iranians can live the life that they deserve.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Until the Iranian regime is willing to be a partner for peace, all nations of conscience must work together to isolate Iran, deny it funding for terrorism, and pray for the day when the Iranian people have the just and righteous government they deserve. Our partnerships will advance security through stability, not through radical disruption. We will make decisions based on real-world outcomes – not inflexible ideology. We will be guided by the lessons of experience, not the confines of rigid thinking. And, wherever possible, we will seek gradual reforms – not sudden intervention.feedback

Sarah T Roberts

It's one thing when you're a small online community with a group of people who share principles and values, but when you have a large percentage of the world's population and say 'share yourself', you are going to be in quite a muddle. Then when you monetise that practice you are entering a disaster situation.feedback

Donald J. Trump

This gathering is unique in the history of nations. The nations of the Middle East cannot wait for American power to crush this evil for you. Muslim nations must be willing to take on the burden if we are going to defeat terrorism, to meet history's great test and conquer extremism. Young Muslim boys and girls should be able to grow up safe from fear and free from violence. Will we be indifferent in the presence of evil?feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

And today, conditions in the region are under a lot of stress because of the threat of terrorism (and) the threat that Iran poses. ... But the primary reason we're here today is to confront this threat of terrorism. If we do not defeat Daesh, if we do not defeat these forces of evil, there will be no conditions under which we could even hope to improve the human rights for all the people of the region.feedback

Mitch Landrieu

These statues are not just stone and metal. They are not just innocent remembrances of a benign history. These monuments celebrate a fictional, sanitized Confederacy; ignoring the death, ignoring the enslavement, ignoring the terror that it actually stood for. After the Civil War, these statues were a part of that terrorism, as much as burning a cross on someone's lawn. They were erected purposefully to send a strong message to all who walked in their shadows about who was still in charge in this city.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

He strongly believes that it is the strength of the faith of people in these religions that will stand up and ultimately be victorious over these forces of terrorism. The people in the rest of the world do not have the time to pay attention to what's happening domestically here.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

I think there is a great anticipation of the president's trip as to what could be accomplished. The purpose of this trip is really one of conveying a message that America is back in terms of our role as a convener, our role as a facilitator to address the daunting challenges that exist in that part of the world, most particularly the challenge of global terrorism.feedback

Philip Luther - Amnesty International

When he is meeting with his counterparts from Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries there, he should be equally as clear that any counter-terrorism efforts must include safeguards to protect the rights of individuals to express their opinions and assemble peacefully.feedback

Bill de Blasio

Based on the information that we have at this moment, there is no indication that this was an act of terrorism. He's a United States citizen and a former member of the armed forces with the United States Navy.feedback

Bill de Blasio

Based on the information we have at this moment, there is no indication that this was an act of terrorism. This is a tough day for New York City, but I want to thank our first responders who got here so quickly. We feel deeply for those injured and particularly for the family of the young woman who was lost. Our prayers are with all of them.feedback

Donald J. Trump

In a few days, I will make my first trip abroad as president. With the safety, security and interest of the American people as my priority, I will strengthen old friendships and will seek new partners, but partners who also help us, not partners who take and take and take. I'll ask them to unite for a future of peace and opposition for our peoples and the peoples of the world, first in Saudi Arabia, where I'll speak with Muslim leaders and challenge them to fight hatred and extremism and embrace a peaceful future for their faith. We have to stop radical Islamic terrorism.feedback

Muhammad Rabbani

I am innocent of these charges that have serious implications for journalists, lawyers and human rights defenders.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

It is absolutely unacceptable to take the YPG-PYD into consideration as partners in the region and it's going against a global agreement we reached. In the same way, we should never allow those groups who want to change the ethnic or religious structures in the region to use terrorism as a pretext. Of course, Mr Trump's victory has led to an awakening of new expectations for Turkey and the region it is in. We know the new US administration will not let these hopes be in vain. I believe today's meeting will strengthen our longstanding alliance and strategic partnership.feedback

Michael Hastings

To Obama – a man famous for valuing both precision and restraint – drones represented a more targeted way of waging war, one with the potential to take out those guilty of conducting terrorism while limiting U.S. casualties.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Today we face a new enemy in the fight against terrorism, and again we seek to face this threat together. The Turkish people have faced horrible terrorist attacks in recent years and even recently.feedback

Zachary Abuza

It was a shock that they targeted what was otherwise a very safe tourist destination.feedback

Eufracia Taylor

If the group is primarily focused on building funds, they have better options than risking operations outside Mindanao. The effort involved in conducting an attack outside of their main territories would likely indicate an act of terror, rather than a straight case of kidnap-for-ransom.feedback

Benjamin Moeling

Tunisia's democratic evolution has been a model for the entire Arab world. Tunisia has been a partner in the war on terrorism, particularly against al-Qaida and Isis in the region, and it is very difficult for any country to cooperate with international partners if it's fighting economic disaster and unrest at home.feedback

Ivan Kurilla

The problem is that both Russia and the U.S. mean different things when they talk about the fight against terrorism in Syria. The question is whether they will try to bridge the gap in their understanding.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We had a very, very successful meeting with the foreign minister of Russia. We want to get as many to help fight terrorism as possible. And that's one of the beautiful things that's happening with Turkey.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

This is going to be the kind of initiative that will put an end to terrorism.feedback

Donald J. Trump

As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against Isis & terrorism. The president and the foreign minister reviewed common threats from terrorist organisations to include threats to aviation. At no time were any intelligence sources or methods discussed and no military operations were disclosed that were not already known publicly.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Not fit! As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism. Snowden has given serious information to China and Russia-anyone who thinks otherwise is a dope! He is a traitor who fled-he knew the crime!feedback

Vladimir Putin

This tragedy is additional proof of the barbaric nature of terrorism that is posing a challenge to human civilization. It is obvious that to counter this evil effectively the entire international community needs to truly join efforts. I would like to confirm the readiness of the Russian side to closely cooperate with our French partners in investigating the crime committed in Paris.feedback

Vladimir Putin

Russia knows terrorism and the threat it creates for us all. Our people have had to deal with similar tragedies many times, and we are deeply distressed at the news. We would like to express our sympathy and solidarity with the French nation. … I would like to stress again that only through a united effort can we defeat terrorism.feedback

Donald J. Trump

As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting)16 which I have the absolute right to do17, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety18. Humanitarian reasons19, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism20.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

During President Trump's meeting with Foreign Minister [Sergey] Lavrov a broad range of subjects were discussed among which were common efforts and threats regarding counter-terrorism. During that exchange the nature of specific threats were discussed, but they did not discuss sources, methods or military operations.feedback

Michael Daly - Raytheon Cybersecurity

It could very well be considered an act of terrorism depending on who is behind the attack.feedback

Donald J. Trump

As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining ... to terrorism and airline flight safety. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism. I have been asking Director Comey & others, from the beginning of my administration, to find the LEAKERS in the intelligence community.feedback

H.R. McMaster

The story that came out tonight, as reported, is false. As President I wanted to share with Russia…which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining…to terrorism and airline safety.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

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

The fight against terrorism should not be lead with another terror organization.feedback

Xi Jinping

Economic growth is not on solid ground ... Economic globalisation is encountering some headwinds. Development has become more uneven – not to mention the other challenges that overshadow the world economy such as wars, conflicts, terrorism and a massive flow of refugees and migrants. Confronted by these challenges many countries are pondering the way forwards ... [but] in a world of growing interdependence and challenges ... no country can tackle all the challenges or solve the world's problems on its own.feedback

Wang Yiwei

Regardless of the U.S. government attitude, U.S. companies will join the Belt and Road if there is money to be made. There is a huge market for U.S. technology, and by bringing development and stability to Afghanistan and other parts of Central Asia, which are hotbeds of terrorism, the Belt and Road will also benefit U.S. security.feedback

Malcolm Turnbull

We are certainly open to increasing our work there, but we've obviously got to look at the commitments of the ADF in other parts of the region and indeed in other parts of the world. But it is very important that we and our other allies in the effort in Afghanistan continue to work together to build up the capacity of Afghanistan's own security forces so that they can keep that country secure from the threat of terrorism, both ISIL (Isis) and of course the Taliban.feedback

Mahmoud Abbas

We believe that the fight against terrorism and extremism is an international responsibility. We are committed to that and we believe that giving our people freedom and independence will remove the nucleus from extremism, and will help to provide a foundation for peace and security in our region.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

The fight against the terrorist organisation Islamic State should not be carried out with another terrorist organisation. This kind of step would endanger the future of Syria and the region. It's obvious where the wrong steps taken in the past brought Syria.feedback

Aleksandr Plyushchev

It is time to call things by their true names.feedback

Vladimir Putin

But for an effective battle with terrorism, extremism, neo-Nazism and other threats the whole international community needs to be consolidated. ... We are open for such cooperation.feedback

Omar Jadwat - American Civil Liberties Union

Even the intelligence agency in the Department of Homeland Security said the order would not reduce terrorism.feedback

Donald J. Trump

She's the strongest on borders, and she's the strongest on what's been going on in France. Whoever is the toughest on radical Islamic terrorism, and whoever is the toughest at the borders will do well in the election. Another terrorist attack in Paris. The people of France will not take much more of this. Will have a big effect on presidential election.feedback

Vladimir Putin

The triumphant victory over this terrible totalitarian force will remain in human history forever as the highest point of the triumph of life and mind over death and barbarity. We must remember that the victory was won at the cost of huge, irreplaceable fatalities, that the war took millions of lives. The lessons of the past war urge us to be vigilant, and the Russian Armed Forces are capable of repelling any potential aggression. But to effectively combat terrorism, extremism, neo-Nazism, and other threats, consolidation of the entire international community is necessary.feedback

Sean Spicer

Obviously this is concerning. We are well-aware of it, and we are going to work through the embassy of Sweden ... through our State Department to seek the release of the individuals there.feedback

Vladimir Putin

The people of France have elected you to the highest office in your country in challenging times for Europe and the international community in general. The growing threat of terrorism and violent extremism goes hand in hand with the escalation of local conflicts and the destabilization of entire regions. Against this backdrop, overcoming mutual distrust and joining efforts to ensure international stability and security is especially important.feedback

Bruce Bennett - Rand Corporation

I wonder if Kim Jong Un has become paranoid about the influence Americans are having on North Koreans, and about the possibility of U.S. action against him. Will Kim increase his internal purges of North Korean elites? Will he focus on North Korean defectors, people who the regime would like to silence? Or will he do both?feedback

Donald J. Trump

Congratulations to Emmanuel Macron on his big win today as the next President of France. I look very much forward to working with him! I believe whoever is the toughest on radical Islamic terrorism and whoever is the toughest at the borders will do well at the election. I am not saying that person is going to win, she is not even favored to win, you know. Right now, she is in second place.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Congratulations to Emmanuel Macron on his big win today as the next President of France. I look very much forward to working with him! Whoever is the toughest on radical Islamic terrorism, and whoever is the toughest at the borders, will do well in the election.feedback

Benjamin Barber

It can’t be left to dysfunctional nation states to tackle – but as Oslo and Seoul have shown, metropolitan centres can rise to the challenge of global warming. Climate change is the most urgent challenge facing humankind. Other issues make headlines: terrorism kills; inequality affects everyday life for billions around the globe. But climate is paramount, because in sustainability human survival itself is at stake. Why then have the nations governing the planet been so hopelessly ineffective in addressing the grave environmental crisis?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

Adel Al-Jubeir

The President's first foreign trip will be to a Muslim country. Thank you Mohammed bin Salman and welcome President Trump. The administration has released them and they're in the process now of working on the notification to the US Congress. It's a very clear message to the world that the US and the Arab Muslim countries can form a partnership. It will lead to, we believe, enhanced cooperation between the US and Arab and Islamic countries in combating terrorism and extremism and it will change the conversation with regards to America's relationship with the Arab and Islamic world.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

Emmanuel Macron

Who has been manipulating deep fear from the start? It is you. Who is playing with the fears of our fellow citizens on terrorism etc? It is you! Deep fear, the high priestess of fear, she is opposite me!feedback

Damon Smith

How to make a bomb - that shouldn't be on YouTube because people copy, especially vulnerable people. Whatever people put on YouTube, broadcast on YouTube - how to make a bomb, how to blow up a car, hacking etc - it's illegal really. They talk about terrorism, beheadings. That shouldn't be on YouTube so young kids could see it. It's wrong.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

What you are proposing is snake oil. I will lead a fight against Islamist terrorism at every level. But what they are wanting, the trap they are holding out for us, is the one that you offer - civil war. Your strategy is simply to tell a lot of lies and just to say what isn't going right in the country.feedback

Bryce Reeves

This is the America Obama left behind. Terrorists living here. FBI investigating ISIS nationwide. Frightening families.feedback

Dean Haydon

He's created a one-stop shop for terrorists. He was very technically competent… he was a very dangerous individual. We found him quite a solitary character. His character in the virtual world was very different from the one in the real world.feedback

Donald J. Trump

This includes upgrading NATO to focus on today's most pressing security and all of its challenges, including migration and terrorism. I complained about that a long time ago and they made a change, and now they do fight terrorism. I said it was obsolete; it's no longer obsolete. I think the distribution of costs has to be changed. I think NATO as a concept is good, but it is not as good as it was when it first evolved.feedback

Jibril Rajoub

I think the worst kind of terrorism is the occupation. We will discuss everything with an open mind.feedback

Neil Basu

Due to the arrests made, I believe we have contained the threats that they posed. With the attack in Westminster on 22 March so fresh in people's minds, I would like to reassure everyone that across the country officers are working around the clock to identify those people who intend to commit acts of terror. I would also like to thank the public for their continued help and support. No matter how hard we try, it is communities that will defeat terrorism and we rely on your vigilance. Please continue to let us know of any suspicions or concerns you may have.feedback

Neil Basu

Due to these arrests that have been made yesterday, in both cases I believe that we have contained the threats that they posed.feedback

Julian King

You are not going to get me to comment on aspects of the UK government's position. From the commission's point of view on terrorism, cyber and serious organised crime, we have a shared assessment of the threat and we are stronger countering them if we are working together. At the moment there are no precedents for non-EU member states having a link to the Schengen information system. So if the UK wanted that it would have to be something to be discussed, it would have to be a particular bespoke arrangement.feedback

Robert Hannigan - Government Communications Headquarters

The extremists of Isis use messaging and social media services such as Twitter, Facebook and WhatsApp, and a language their peers understand. GCHQ and its sister agencies, MI5 and the Secret Intelligence Service, cannot tackle these challenges at scale without greater support from the private sector. Increasingly services not only host the material of violent extremism or child exploitation, but are the routes for the facilitation of crime and terrorism.feedback

Pope Francis

As religious leaders, we are called to unmask violence that masquerades as purported sanctity. Egypt, in the days of Joseph, saved other peoples from famine; today it is called to save this beloved region from a famine of love and fraternity, . It is called to condemn and vanquish all violence and terrorism. ... Egypt, in building peace and at the same time combating terrorism, is called to give proof that religion belongs to God and the nation to all. Their innocent blood unites us.feedback

Dara Khosrowshahi - Expedia

The biggest issue there was Easter. ... Last year, Easter was in the first quarter. This year Easter is in the second quarter. We saw London growth get a little bit weaker after the Westminster tragedy over there, but it seems to be coming back.feedback

Louis Caprioli

Unfortunately, radicalisation is a historical phenomenon which goes back to the arrests of Islamic terrorists in the ninties. This phenomenon was not taken into account at the time because we were mixing people arrested for acts of terrorism with the rest of the prison population.feedback

Neil Basu

Given the horrors in London of a few short weeks ago – and our thoughts are still with the victims and survivors of that dreadful day - I wanted to reassure the public that our increased activity to combat terrorism over the last two years continues, both by police and security services. Activity continues around the clock to identify and stop these threats and we are making arrests on a near daily basis. I would like to reassure everyone that across the country officers are working round the clock to identify those people who intend to commit acts of terror.feedback

Neil Basu

He remains in our custody having been arrested for Terrorism Act Offences and possession of offensive weapons and there are two ongoing searches at addresses in London as part of that investigation. During the course of that operation one of the subjects of that operation - a woman - was shot by police - she remains in hospital. Her condition is serious but stable. Because of her condition she has not yet been arrested. We are monitoring her condition closely. In total six people have now been arrested in connection with that investigation - five at or near the address and one in Kent.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Not many 27-year-old men could go in and take over a regime. He was a bad guy - really bad guy. But you know what he did well? He killed terrorists. He did that so good. They didn't read them the rights. They didn't talk. They were terrorists - over. Today, Iraq is Harvard for terrorism.feedback

Richard Hammond

We found in the course of our research that 88% of the tweets have negative connotations, which means that the subject is perceived by the individual as a problem that needs to be addressed or that cannot be resolved.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

Catherine Ghazal

We are very happy that the Pope is coming to visit Egypt. It's a message of love and peace from him and he is trying to prove to the world that Egypt is still safe no matter what terrorism is trying to do in our country.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I made a speech. I looked out, the field was – it looked like a million, million and a half people. Yeah, I guess so. It's gotten to a point where it (terrorism) is not even being reported. And in many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn't want to report it.feedback

Malia Bouattia

With mainstream Zionist-led media outlets... resistance is resented as an act of terrorism.feedback

Brooke Buddemeier

There was so much information that came out altogether, but then it's kind of hard to fit information about nuclear terrorism in with warnings about earthquakes and hurricanes and wildfires and all other emergencies that happen on a regular basis.feedback

Marine Le Pen

I'm on the ground to meet the French people to draw their attention to important subjects, including Islamist terrorism, on which the least we can say is that Mr Macron is weak. I am not limited to this or that category of French. I think that many will discover the background of Mr. Macron's project.feedback

Gilad Erdan

Barghouti's strike is motivated by internal Palestinian political motives and therefore includes unreasonable demands regarding prisoner conditions.feedback

Jamal Barakat

He belongs in prison for the rest of his life. Anyone who kills an innocent - whether he is Jewish, Muslim, Christian, Druze, Arab - does not deserve to be a human being.feedback

Grant Rumley

Barghouti's clout in Palestinian politics derives from his role in organising and leading the intifadas, but it's his time in prison that has solidified him as a national symbol.feedback

Michael Herzog

The chances of releasing him are not high. I've followed him for many years and he's like Arafat - he believes that in order to get what you want from Israel you have to deploy a mixture of diplomacy and violence.feedback

Harun Khan

Bigots must not be allowed to set the terms of the debate. Due to the scourge of terrorism that we all oppose, bigots are obsessed with sharia law, keen to question our loyalty to our country and refuse to accept us Muslims as equal citizens of this nation.feedback

Carwyn Jones

One of the things you have to do in leadership is give a straight answer. Otherwise people will interpret your answer in many different ways. My answer is quite simply, yes, we do replace Trident. It's hugely important as a party that you are able to convince people you are going to keep them secure. Trident is a deterrent. It doesn't keep us secure against terrorism. That's why it's so important that we need to bolster our armed forces to meet the immediate threat that exists in Europe at the moment.feedback

Marine Le Pen

I'm on the ground to meet the French people to draw their attention to important subjects, including Islamist terrorism, to which the least we can say Mr Macron is weak on. Mr Macron has no project to protect the French people in the face of Islamist dangers.feedback

Alain Richaud

We really need a change in this country, with all the difficulties we are facing and terrorism.feedback

Kathryn Bigelow

I realized that there was an intersection between poaching and terrorism, which led me to this project.feedback

Marise Moron

These 48 hours are not going to change everything. ... Terrorism is now an everyday occurrence. It's permanent, 24 hours a day. So we're not afraid. If we're believers, believers in freedom, we must live with it.feedback

John Nicholson

The attack on the 209th Corps today shows the barbaric nature of the Taliban. The Afghan National Defense and Security forces and the people of Afghanistan have my personal assurance that we will continue to stand with them. We support our valuable friends and partners in the fight against terrorism.feedback

Natalie Nougayrède

France goes to the polls on Sunday in a presidential election shaped by economic insecurity, cultural paranoia and terrorism. Natalie Nougayrède travels to the south-west and tries to make sense of the most important vote of her lifetime.feedback

Philip Hammond

I think there is an appetite among G20, G7 partners to look for areas where we can demonstrate by our actions, rather than words, to the new U.S. administration how these multilateral organizations can help the U.S. administration to achieve its objectives. The new administration comes into office with, shall we say, a degree of skepticism about the value of the multilateral organizations. It's for the multilateral organizations to demonstrate their value.feedback

François Heisbourg - The International Institute for Strategic Studies

Now there is a structuring thematic, and that thematic is terrorism. But if terrorism will now be at the front of everyone's mind, we have no idea how that plays.feedback

Marine Le Pen

It is time to stop being naive. I only ask one last-ditch effort from him before leaving power: I solemnly ask him to effectively reinstate our borders.feedback

Lukas Rüttinger

The scarcer resources become, the more power is given to those who control them, especially in regions where people are particularly reliant on natural resources for their livelihoods. As climate change affects food security and the availability of water and land, affected people will become more vulnerable not only to negative climate impacts but also to recruitment by terrorist groups offering alternative livelihoods and economic incentives.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

We're reviewing all the status of North Korea, both in terms of state sponsorship of terrorism as well as the other ways in which we can bring pressure on the regime in Pyongyang to re-engage with us, but re-engage with us on a different footing than past talks have been held.feedback

Meredith Sumpter

So the rising Muslim populism aside, I would expect that during this trip, the vice president will focus on the bilateral relationship, on ASEAN, on counter-terrorism, and also doubling down on what could be done to strengthen commercial ties between the two countries.feedback

Randa Loutfi

It's silly to add the money issue to all the other challenges. We already have enough challenges.feedback

Randa Loutfi

During that period of freezing, we weren't able to wire money; we weren't able to pay our staff in the U.S. We show them the license that we work under from the government. Still, many banks were scared. They start the process and then, Sorry, we cannot continue.feedback

Mais Balkhi

We're having more attacks, people are dying, but we are sometimes unable to help because banks are closing accounts and delaying transactions.feedback

Jayne Huckerby

Women's rights and their defenders are really often caught in the crosshairs of these very risk-averse banks and overzealous regulatory authorities.feedback

Rob Rowe

Unfortunately, banks just can't send funds. They look at it and say, We can't make the distinction between a charity that's trying to get money to a starving family versus one that is ready to go out and buy a stockpile of Uzis to fire on civilians. We don't have enough information, we can't make that call, and if we make the wrong guess, we're the ones that are in trouble.feedback

Lukas Rüttinger

Terrorist groups are increasingly using natural resources – such as water – as a weapon of war, controlling access to it, and further compounding, and exacerbating resource scarcities. The scarcer resources become, the more power is given to those who control them, especially in regions where people are particularly reliant on natural resources for their livelihoods.feedback

James Matthis

Climate change is impacting stability in areas of the world where our troops are operating today. It is appropriate for the combatant commands to incorporate drivers of instability that impact the security environment in their areas into their planning.feedback

Sherri Goodman

Climate is a threat multiplier because it aggravates others tensions and conflicts that already exist.feedback

Tanya Gersh

Overnight, my life was stolen from me. Hating people is one thing. This is a form of terrorism.feedback

Marine Le Pen

We cannot fight the terrorism that weighs on our country without controlling our borders. Because they were delinquents, they would have been expelled from France.feedback

Jon Alterman

The Saudi concern is strategically Iran... The near-term Saudi concern is how they send a message to the Iranians in Yemen, and they would like full-throated American support. They would also like more American support in fighting terrorism in the Sinai peninsula and they like more American confidence that they are doing it the right way.feedback

Peter Baker - The New York Times

But as seasoned hands got access to him, he retreated from some of his provocative promises. He delayed his vow to move the American Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem after King Abdullah II of Jordan rushed to Washington to warn him of a violent backlash among Arabs. He abandoned his intention to bring back torture in terrorism interrogations after Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told him it was ineffective.feedback

Linda Glover

I don't think it's an insecure city at all. Of course you think about terrorism, it's everywhere now, but it didn't make me not go to Paris.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The secretary-general and I had a productive discussion about what more NATO can do in the fight against terrorism. I complained about that a long time ago and they made a change, and now they do fight terrorism. I said it was obsolete. It's no longer obsolete. The car industry is not going to leave us anymore, believe me. The car industry is staying in our country. They were leaving – if I didn't win this election, you would have lost your car industry to Mexico and to other countries. They're not leaving anymore, believe me. There's retribution if they leave. There was no retribution.feedback

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

Allies sent Awacs surveillance planes to help patrol American skies and we launched NATO's biggest military operation ever in Afghanistan. Hundreds of thousands of Europeans and Canadian soldiers have served shoulder to shoulder with American troops. More than 1,000 have paid the ultimate price. Our mission in Afghanistan is a major contribution to the fight against international terrorism.feedback

Alexander Vershbow - NATO

It's to better deal with hybrid warfare and crisis management, not just terrorism, but it will help in C.T. as well.feedback

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

For me, the important thing is that [Trump] has been very consistent when it comes to NATO in all my interactions and conversations with him. I said it was obsolete. It's no longer obsolete. At the same time [Trump's security team has] underlined the importance of NATO increasing its efforts to fight international terrorism. I am working on that. And there is also an importance, a burden sharing. We have turned the corner and European defense spending has now started to increase.feedback

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

We have established a new division for intelligence, which enhances our ability to fight terrorism, and working together in the alliance to fight terrorism even an even more effective way. But we agreed today, you and I, that NATO can and must do more in the global fight against terrorism.feedback

Asim Bajwa

His (Jadhav) goal was to disrupt development of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), with Gwadar port as a special target. This is nothing short of state-sponsored terrorism... There can be no clearer evidence of Indian interference in Pakistan. If an intelligence or an armed forces officer of this rank is arrested in another country, it is a big achievement.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I complained about that a long time ago and they made a change, and now they do fight terrorism. I said it was obsolete. It's no longer obsolete. It's my hope that NATO will take on an increased role in supporting our Iraqi partners in their battle against the ISIS. Right now we are not getting along with Russia at all. It would be wonderful... if NATO and our country could get along with Russia.feedback

John Beattie

We cannot control what goes on in public places; we all rely on the security services and police, and there is a limit to what can be done: how can you protect a public road to and from a stadium?feedback

John Beattie

Football matches and crowded events are recognised as targets for terrorism, with tens of thousands of people in the same location and the high profile of television coverage. Heightened security measures have been in place at major venues in the UK and Europe particularly since the Paris attacks, and counter-terrorism is a key part of planning for events. People should be reassured that a great amount of work is done to assess and protect against risks at sports stadiums across Europe. But the nature of those risks is changing all the time.feedback

Ma Haiyun

Interest groups have actively promoted Islamophobia in interior regions in order to create a nationwide environment that justifies Xinjiang's anti-terrorism campaign. There's an Islamophobic movement that aims at creating chaos and even conflicts at the local level. I don't blame the locals, because I believe they were influenced. I want them to know Muslims are virtuous people. We are peaceful. We are reasonable. We are tolerant. And we are good Chinese.feedback

Carsten Maple

Make no mistake, cyber security is a Tier One threat for the government, up there with terrorism and pandemics. Imagine if you had a major incident where all these autonomous vehicles stopped or crashed into each other. It's possible. Let's say I was a criminal. Would I say, Give me £100 and I'll unlock your car' or, if there's lots of data in your car, connected to your phone, with details of where you went and who you spoke to, would I blackmail you instead? Even though it has not happened yet, there is a concern it might.feedback

Jenny Durkan

Which prosecutors and agents does he want to divert from the growing threats like terrorism, cyber crime, the opioid and heroin trade, organized crime and cartel activity? The 'surge' philosophy always requires taking agents, money and prosecutors from other priorities. In fact, the cost of satisfying Washington will reduce the ability of every U.S. attorney to address the greatest threats in their communities.feedback

Sarah Margon - Human Rights Watch

President Trump has made really clear that fighting terrorism, as they define this, is going to be the top foreign policy priority. And that means that the consideration of mitigating circumstances and other issues that could create a problem in the long term will not be at the forefront.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

If I get elected, France will as of this summer undertake a major initiative aimed at the big Internet companies so that they accept a legal framework for requisitions of encrypted services in the context of counter-terrorism efforts.feedback

Hamidreza Taraghi

Whenever we deem it necessary, we will give them the use of our air bases. We are growing closer and closer to the Russians in our cooperation in fighting terrorism. That's all I can say.feedback

Stefan Lofven

Friends, Sweden, Belgium and the United Kingdom stand together in mourning the citizens we have lost. Our three countries have suffered horrendous acts of terrorism, but we have also seen the strength, determination and power of our democratic societies.feedback

Seamus Hughes

The fact that there was a physical location and a caliphate announced, it helped kind of drive folks back in when they might have drifted away.feedback

Sergey Lavrov

An attack on a country whose government fights terrorism only plays into the hands of extremists, creates additional threats to regional and global security.feedback

Maria del Mar Blanco

The bad guys are still the bad guys. The good guys – we, the victims of terrorism – are still the good ones.feedback

Stefan Lofven

The country is in a state of shock. The aim of terrorism is to undermine democracy. But such a goal will never be achieved in Sweden.feedback

Stefan Lofven

If it is a terrorist attack, and regardless of whether it was carried out by an organisation or a lone perpetrator, the aim of terrorism is to undermine democracy, to sow discord between people so that more people will begin to hate and distrust one another. But those kinds of acts will never succeed in Sweden. We know that our enemy is this kind of vile murderer – not one another. We will use all of Sweden's strength to track you down. Our message will always be clear: you cannot suppress us, you cannot control our lives, you will never win.feedback

Buthaina Shaaban

This very airport that was attacked by the United States has been fighting against terrorists for the last six years. If the United States is serious about fighting terrorism, why not direct its missiles on Daesh and al-Nusra.feedback

Vladimir Safronkov - UN

The consequences... for regional and international stability could be extremely serious. The US has often talked about the need to combat international terrorism. It's not difficult to imagine how much the spirits of terrorists have been raised by this action from the United States.feedback

Jan Evensson

We have arrested one in whom we are particularly interested. We continue to investigate at full force.feedback

Vladimir Putin

In our country, people know, and not by hearsay, about the atrocities of international terrorism. At this difficult time, Russians mourn together with the people of Sweden.feedback

Vladimir Safronkov - UN

We strongly condemn the illegitimate actions by the United States. The consequences of this for regional and international stability could be extremely serious. We call upon the United States to immediately cease aggression and to join those efforts being made for a political settlement in Syria. The Russian Federation from the United Nations organization has stated the need to establish an international coalition to counter terrorism, which would be on the basis of international law. You have chosen a different path.feedback

Talal al-Barazi

The war on terrorism is sustained, and the protection of the people is our priority.feedback

Vladimir Chizhov

Well I think first of all we all have the same aim in Syria, which is to bring peace to that war-torn country and we have an overarching aim of combating… that overarching which goes beyond Syria, of combating international terrorism.feedback

Alfonso Alonso

I would have loved to see this parliament requiring ETA to dissolve and vanish once and for all from our lives. They should recognise the pain imparted, of course they should beg for pardon and collaborate with authorities to investigate the unresolved crimes.feedback

Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero

I've ordered the suspension of all initiatives to develop the dialogue. I said from the beginning that the government knew it would be a long, hard and difficult process. Today has been a hard day.feedback

Paolo Gentiloni

Last night's military action should not block, but accelerate the political negotiations in order to achieve a long term solution, which is the only serious antidote against the threat of terrorism.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Tonight I call on all civilised nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syrian and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types. We asked for God's wisdom as we face the challenge of our very troubled world. We pray for the lives of the wounded and for the souls of those who passed. And we hope as long as America stands for justice and peace and harmony will in the end prevail. Good night and God bless America and the entire world.feedback

Hanif Atmar

We are fighting on three fronts at once – terrorism, poverty and corruption – and they are all interconnected. It is not easy, but we are making progress on all three, and those who paint a grim and hopeless picture are not right. We are struggling, but we are determined. It is no longer a matter of political will. It is a matter of capacity, and that will be increased.feedback

Talal Barazi

Syrian leadership and Syrian policy will not change. This targeting was not the first and I don't believe it will be the last. We will not be surprised to see the Americans playing a direct role on the ground to support its goals everywhere.feedback

John Conyers

It is clear that Section 702 surveillance programs can and do collect information about U.S. persons, on subjects unrelated to counter-terrorism. It is imperative that we understand the size of this impact on U.S. persons as our committee proceeds with the debate on reauthorization.feedback

Dmitry Peskov

With this step Washington has struck a significant blow to Russian-American relations, which were already in a sorry state. The participants expressed deep concern at the inevitable negative consequences of these aggressive actions for the joint efforts to fight terrorism.feedback

Donald J. Trump

It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons. There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and ignored the urging of the UN Security Council. Years of previous attempts at changing Assad's behaviour have all failed and failed very dramatically. Tonight I call on all civilised nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria, and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types.feedback

Walid Al-Moualem

I confirm to you once again that the Syrian Arab Army has not and will not use this type of weapon against our people and our children, and not even against the terrorists who kill our people. I am confident we will reach an understanding with them after accomplishing the struggle against terrorism.feedback

Bashar al-Assad

If we do not win this war, it means that Syria will be deleted from the map. We have no choice in facing this war, and that's why we are confident, we are persistent and we are determined. That is why we cannot, practically, reach any actual result with this part of the opposition (in talks). The evidence is that during the Astana negotiations they started their attack on the cities of Damascus and Hama and other parts of Syria, repeating the cycle of terrorism and the killing of innocents.feedback

Omara Khan Masoudi

I'm very happy to see the president pay attention to the reconstruction of this palace. It's really important. The media now is celebrating this as the land of terrorism, Al Qaeda and Taliban. This is something different.feedback

Vladimir Putin

We see that unfortunately, the situation is not improving. The recent tragic events in St. Petersburg are the best confirmation of this. People died in the terrorist attack and many were injured. We know that each our country, practically each, is a possible and potential target of terrorist attacks. There are also many other threats for our countries.feedback

António Guterres - United Nations

Nobody is winning this war, everybody is losing. It is having a detrimental and destabilizing effect on the entire region and it is providing a focus that is feeding the new threat of global terrorism.feedback

I just want to let everybody know, in case there was any doubt, that we are very much behind President el-Sissi. He's done a fantastic job in a very difficult situation. We are very much behind Egypt and the people of Egypt. We have strong backing. Hopefully, you liked me a lot more. Together, we will fight terrorism and other things and we're going to be friends for a very, very long time.feedback

Nikki Haley

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

Abdel Fattah el-Sisi

Since we met last September I have had a deep appreciation and admiration of your unique personality, especially since you are standing so strong against terrorism. Very strongly and openly you will find Egypt and myself beside you.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We agree on so many things. I just want to let everybody know in case there was any doubt that we are very much behind President al-Sisi. We will fight terrorism and other things. We're going to be friends for a long, long period of time. We have a great bond with the people of Egypt ... I look forward to a very long and strong relationship.feedback

Cressida Dick

It is a great honour and privilege for me to be taking up this role. I am looking forward to leading what I believe to be the world's best police service. The Met's response to the terrible events in Westminster demonstrated it is highly professional and effective.

Criminals involved in drug trafficking and terrorism use the banking system to transfer about US$800 million to US$2 trillion every year globally.

Trump would rather stand with a strongman against terrorism and Islamism than concern himself with Egypt's domestic challenges – or US values at stake. He praised Sisi for forcefully taking control of Egypt, essentially blessing the crackdown that President Obama had condemned.feedback

Robert Springborg

The US military has long been pushing Egypt to 'go light and mobile'. The counter-terrorism campaign in the Sinai and in Egypt proper has not achieved its objectives, due largely to harsh methods, poor intelligence and the drivers of discontent intensifying. New military equipment will not impact these shortcomings.feedback

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

At the time when I spoke about Iran I was a commander of US Central Command and that (Iran) was the primary exporter of terrorism, frankly, it was the primary state sponsor of terrorism and it continues that kind of behaviour today.feedback

Bahram Ghassemi

Giving a wrong address when referring to the roots and the financial and intellectual resources of terrorism is a main reason for a lack of success by international anti-terror efforts.feedback

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

In the long run, it is much better to fight terrorism and project stability by training local forces and building local security institutions, instead of NATO deploying a large number of combat troops. In Iraq, we are already building the capacity of local forces, including life-saving training to counter improvised explosive devices, and I hope we will be able to expand our support to new areas. As part of our broad international effort, NATO can and must make a real difference.feedback

If we want to defeat terrorism in Syria we don't just need to defeat Daesh, we also must fight its causes.feedback

Dorit Geva

There's the issue of terrorism but there is also the issue of the extremely violent acts that have occurred within France against police within the last few months, including the firebombing of a police car, which a lot of French citizens found extremely disturbing. It's true the acts of terrorism are extremely important but there are also internal events that are not as well known to an international audience but are still just as important, if not more so. If there was an act of terrorism between now and the election that could be enough of a tipping point to get Le Pen into the Elysee.feedback
