All quotes about Terrorism

Theresa May

An act of terrorism tried to silence our democracy, he took out his rage indiscriminately.

Theresa May

An act of terrorism tried to silence our democracy. He took out his rage indiscriminately against innocent men, women and children.

Danny Danon - United Nations

There can be no moral equivalency between the building of homes and murderous terrorism. The only impediment to peace is Palestinian violence and incitement. This obsessive focus on Israel must end.

Danny Danon - United Nations

There can be no moral equivalency between the building of homes and murderous terrorism. The only impediment to peace is Palestinian violence and incitement.

Maria Katasonova

Putin, Trump and Le Pen all stand up for their countries' interests but they understand very well that cooperation and dialogue with each other's countries can correct the mistakes that the Obama-Merkel-Hollande axis made–really serious mistakes like allowing for terrorism, an economic crisis, and a refugee crisis. They can fix all that.

Antonio Tajani

We can defeat terrorism, solve the problem of immigration and banish the lingering economic crisis, with the scourge of youth unemployment, only if we are able to rediscover and appreciate the reasons that brought us together.

Yuri Fedotov - UNODC

But the destruction and looting are also generating profits for terrorists through trafficking, carried out in collusion with organized crime groups. Those profits fund further acts of terrorism, and enable yet more destruction and looting of cultural sites and archaeological treasures. We have the treaties, tools, guidelines and training materials. But we need to operationalize commitments more effectively, and we need member states to provide more resources in the spirit of shared responsibility.

Roy Greenslade

The point of terrorists is to create terror. That is the definition of terrorism. ISIS do nothing and yet they reap the rewards of being able to bring terror to a capital on the other side of the world.

Tom Cotton

The president has said he's putting Iran on notice, and passing this bill would be an unmistakable sign of resolve. We will not tolerate Iran's pursuit of supremacy in the Middle East or its sponsorship of terrorism, and we will make the regime in Tehran pay a steep price for its dangerous behavior.

Sadiq Khan

This attack on our way of life, this attack on our shared values, shows the world what it means to be a Londoner. Londoners will never by cowed by terrorism.

Danny Danon - United Nations

There is no moral equivalency between the building of homes and murderous terrorism. The only impediment to peace is Palestinian violence and incitement. This obsessive focus on Israel must end.

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

As we mark the 60th anniversary of that fateful date, we are also marking the birth of the European project anew. It's around that but that's not the main story. We have to calculate scientifically what the British commitments were and then the bill has to be paid. Pollution, terrorism and organised crime, to give just three examples, do not stop at national borders. So without collective policymaking there can be no effective policy on those matters.

Mark Rowley

Our working assumption is that he was inspired by international terrorism.

Theresa May

An act of terrorism tried to silence our democracy. He took out his rage indiscriminately.

Sadiq Khan

We have come together to spread a clear message: Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism. This attack was cowardly and depraved. There is no justification for this act whatsoever. The best response to this outrage is to make sure we come together in solidarity and not allow the terrorists to divide us.

Emily Winterbotham

The trend towards the easily accessible, low-cost methods seen in London, Nice and Berlin makes preventing attacks ever more difficult. On Wednesday, the wave of terror attacks witnessed in Europe and elsewhere struck at the heart of London. The attacker has now been identified as Khalid Masood, born in Kent – a 52-year-old known to the security services. Isis has also claimed responsibility, although their inability to name the attacker before the police did raises some doubts as to the veracity of such claims.

Sadiq Khan

We are here to send a clear message that Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism. Those evil and twisted individuals who try to destroy our shared way of life will never succeed. London is a great city full of amazing people from all backgrounds and when Londoners face adversity, we stand up for our values and show everyone that we are the greatest city in the world. Our response to this attack against out city and our way of life shows the world what it means to be a Londoner.

Michael Fallon

We're also dealing with an enemy, a terrorist enemy, that is not making demands or taking people hostage, but simply wants to kill as many people as possible. This is a new element to international terrorism.

Maria V. Zakharova

Regarding the reaction of the Ukrainian authorities and media, who, within an hour after the incident already have put the blame on the Russian Federation…. This puts an end to any unprejudiced and objective investigation of this murder.

Petro Poroshenko

Voronenkov was one of the main witnesses of the Russian aggression against Ukraine and, in particular, the role of Yanukovich regarding the deployment of Russian troops to Ukraine.

Iwona Romek

As I speak, millions will be boarding trains and airplanes to travel to London and to see for themselves the greatest city on Earth. It is in these actions – millions of acts of normality – that we find the best response to terrorism. A response that denies our enemies their victory, that refuses to let them win.

Theresa May

Our working assumption is that the attacker was inspired by Islamist ideology. We know the threat from Islamist terrorism is very real. But while the public should remain utterly vigilant they should not and will not be cowed by this threat. But the greatest response lies not in the words of politicians, but in the everyday actions of ordinary people.For beyond these walls today – in scenes repeated in towns and cities across the country – millions of people are going about their days and getting on with their lives.

Mark Rowley

It is still our belief, which continues to be borne out by our investigation, that this attacker acted alone and was inspired by international terrorism. Clearly the investigation is ongoing and developing all the time and we continue to focus on his motivation, his preparation and his associates.

Theresa May

As I speak, millions will be boarding trains and airplanes to travel to London, and to see for themselves the greatest city on Earth. It is in these actions - millions of acts of normality - that we find the best response to terrorism. A response that denies our enemies their victory, that refuses to let them win, that shows we will never give in.

Sadiq Khan

Londoners will not cower. I know I speak for everyone in expressing my enduring thanks and admiration for the members of the Metropolitan Police Service and all who work so selflessly to help and protect others. London is the greatest city in the world and we stand together in the face of those who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life. Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism.

Phil Covarrubias

I think we need to look at the Americans that are in fear from the terrorism and the things that we've seen over the last few years especially. Everybody's talking about the immigrants being in fear or the other people being in fear. What about our own people? What about Florida? What about San Bernardino? ... We need to take care of our home here and realize that we have plenty of our own citizens – citizens – that are in fear.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

I strongly condemn the terror attack in London. The Turkish people share the pain of the United Kingdom. I extend my sympathies to the victims' families and the British people. I wish a speedy recovery to those who were injured. We stand in solidarity with the UK, our friend and ally, against terrorism, the greatest threat to global peace and security.

Theresa May

It is Islamist terrorism. It is a perversion of a great faith. Let this be the message from this House and this nation today: our values will prevail.

Theresa May

Beyond these walls today – in scenes repeated in towns and cities across the country – millions of people are going about their days and getting on with their lives. The streets are as busy as ever, the offices full, the coffee shops and cafés bustling. As I speak, millions will be boarding trains and aeroplanes to travel to London and to see from themselves the greatest city on earth. It is in these actions, millions of acts of normality, that we find the best response to terrorism.

Theresa May

The greatest response lies not in the words of politicians, but in the every day actions of ordinary people. For beyond these walls today, in scenes repeated in towns and cities across the country, millions of people are going about their days and getting on with their lives. The streets are as busy as ever, the offices full, the coffee shops and cafes bustling. As I speak, millions will be boarding planes and aeroplanes to travel to London and to see for themselves the greatest city on Earth. It is in these actions - millions of acts of normality - that we find the best response to terrorism.

Theresa May

We are not afraid. Yesterday an act of terrorism tried to silence our democracy, but today we meet as normal.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

We stand in solidarity with the U.K., our friend and ally, against terrorism, the greatest threat to global peace and security.

Li Keqiang

Together, we send our condolences to the prime minister of the U.K. and together we condemn terrorism and we stand against all forms of terrorism.

Angela Merkel

Although the background to these incidents still needs to be exactly clarified, I confirm on behalf of Germany and its citizens that we stand firmly and resolutely by Britain's side when it comes to fighting any kind of terrorism.

Theresa May

We are not afraid, our resolve will not waiver. We are not afraid and our resolve will never waver in the face of terrorism.

Michael Fallon

This kind of attack, this lone wolf attack, using things from daily life – a vehicle, a knife – is much more difficult to forestall. We are also dealing with a terrorist enemy that is not making demands or holding people hostage, but simply wants to kill as many people as possible – so this is a new element to international terrorism. This is a new type of attack where somebody gets hold of a vehicle and drives it into innocent people – that also shows the moral vacuity of these terrorists.

Andres Hermida

Betanzos has suffered a terrible blow because of the scourge of terrorism. . Our most sincere condolences to the family of Aysha, a woman originally form Betanzos murdered in London.

Richard Branson - Virgin Group

Airlines just have to do what they are told and we just have to hope that people who make up these rules have good reasons to do so because the rules that were laid down by the American government on a number of airlines yesterday were slightly strange in that they only affected foreign airlines they didn't affect American airlines … I just wondered whether there might be more to it than met the eye.

Richard Branson - Virgin Group

One has to be realistic and I think the important thing that we've got to do is to beat ISIS, make sure they don't control any territory in the world and I think that's the most important thing we can do. Then we've got to start winning over the minds and souls of people around the world. By being much more open and by treating people with decency, people from all walks of life, looking after people having to flee countries, that's the kind of example I think Britain should give and other countries should give and that I suspect is the best security weapon that we can put out.

Sadiq Khan

The Mayor invites all Londoners – and everyone visiting our city – to come together in solidarity to remember those who have lost their lives, to express sympathy with their families and loved ones and to show the world that we are more committed than ever to the values that we hold dear – that we remain united and open. London is the greatest city in the world. We will never be cowed by terrorism. We stand together, in the face of those who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life.

Theresa May

As I speak millions will be boarding trains and airplanes to travel to London, and to see for themselves the greatest city on Earth. It is in these actions - millions of acts of normality - that we find the best response to terrorism –a response that denies our enemies their victory, that refuses to let them win, that shows we will never give in.

Michael Fallon

Their working assumption is that this was linked to Islamic terrorism. London is getting back to work. London has seen this before and is taking it on the chin.

Mark Rowley

It is still our belief, which continues to be born out by our investigation, that this attacker acted alone and was inspired by international terrorism.

Amber Rudd

It reminded us how we are all so connected. The terrorists will not defeat us, we will defeat them. We are strong in our values and proud of our country.

Sharon Lando

It's not about what religion or country people are from. We are all people – the people who were killed and injured were people.

Craig Mackey

This cannot be undone, much as we would wish it. However, we do get to choose our reaction, and gathering here tonight shows us exactly how we must move forwards. We must stand together.

James Armian

The attack was intended to divide us, but instead it will bring us together. It's meant to create hate, but as you saw from the way people responded to the attack with bravery and kindness, it has created love.

Christoph Schult - Spiegel Gruppe

Life was largely back to normal in a day. So an incident like London is even less likely to create any extra sense of insecurity. While some people do feel insecure about terrorism and might link it to the refugee crisis, they think the government is now doing O.K., that there are some fanatics in the world and what can you do?

Mark Rowley

It is still our belief, which continues to be borne out by our investigation, that this attacker acted alone and was inspired by international terrorism.

Theresa May

It is wrong to describe this as Islamic terrorism. It is Islamist terrorism. It is a perversion of a great faith.

Theresa May

Our values will prevail. We know the threat from Islamist terrorism is very real. The greatest response lies not in the words of politicians, but in the everyday actions of ordinary citizens. Yesterday we saw the worst of humanity, but we will remember the best...Let this be the message from this House and this nation today: our values will prevail.

Francois Hollande

We express our full support to the British people. Terrorism concerns us all and France know how the British people are suffering today.

Li Keqiang

Together, we send our condolences to the prime minister of the UK and together we condemn terrorism and we stand against all forms of terrorism. There cannot be continued instability in the world. We must cherish peace and stability.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

I want to emphasize that Turkey deeply feels and shares the United Kingdom's sorrow. Turkey always stands in solidarity with the friendly and allied United Kingdom in the fight against terrorism, one of the greatest threats to international peace and security. I extend my sympathies to the victims' families and the British people. I wish a speedy recovery to those who were injured.

Sadiq Khan

I want to reassure all Londoners and all our visitors not to be alarmed – our city remains one of the safest in the world. Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism.

Digby Jones

You're safer in London than you've ever been. If this turns out to be an act of Islamic terrorism, I think the fact that the man is a Muslim is utterly and completely irrelevant.

Saj Ahmad - StrategicAero Research

It does nothing to prevent security [threats] from places like France that have suffered a lot of terrorism in recent years. How would Homeland Security mitigate against a passenger from France with a device in the cabin in that situation?

Mansour al-Turki

When they are defeated in Syria and Iraq we are all going to face difficulties and nobody knows where the ISIS (Islamic State) fighters will go to. I think we will be entering the next phase of terrorism which is through social media and lone wolves.

Sadiq Khan

Londoners should be aware that there will be additional armed and unarmed police officers on our streets from tonight in order to keep Londoners, and all those visiting out city safe. I want to reassure all Londoners, and all our visitors, not to be alarmed. Our city remains one of the safest in the world. London is the greatest city in the world and we stand together in the face of those who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life. We always have and we always will. Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism.

Angela Merkel

Even if the background to these attacks has yet to be cleared up, I would like to emphasise on behalf of Germany and its citizens: we stand resolutely on Britain's side in the fight against any form of terrorism.

Francois Hollande

Terrorism affects us all. France, which has been so badly hit in recent times, knows what the British people are suffering today.

Sean Spicer

The President has been briefed on the situation in London. He just spoke to Prime Minister May. We obviously condemn the attack, which the United Kingdom is treating as terrorism. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.

Elena Cavallone - Euronews

But facing these new challenges of the fight against terrorism seems hard for Belgium, where in addition to the difficult exchanges of information with the intelligence of other countries, there is also a lack of coordination between internal security services, as denounced by the unions of the Federal Police.

Haider al-Abadi

Support will not only continue but will accelerate. But of course we have to be careful here. We are not talking about military confrontation as such. Committing troops is one thing, while fighting terrorism is another thing.

Shannon Wheeler

He applies the same homespun wisdom to everything: health care, the Middle East, taxes, terrorism. I like the global-warming tweets because it's fun to draw him in snow.

Haider al-Abadi

I think they're prepared to do more to fight terrorism and be more engaged. I haven't seen a full plan. I know there is a plan. I haven't seen it.

Barack Obama

I think this administration wants to be more engaged in fighting terrorism. I sense a difference in terms of being head-to-head with terrorism. There are better ways for defeating terrorism.

Haider al-Abadi

I think they're prepared to do more to fight terrorism and be more engaged. But of course we have to be careful here. We are not talking about military confrontation as such. Committing troops is one thing, while fighting terrorism is another thing.

Haider al-Abadi

I think they're prepared to do more to fight terrorism and be more engaged. But of course we have to be careful here. We are not talking about military confrontation as such. Committing troops is one thing, while fighting terrorism is another thing. We (would) love to see more funds so that we can quickly (regain) prosperity and stabilization in these areas. I thank you for removing Iraq from the presidential order ... this was a positive response to the Iraqi request that betters the relationship with Iraq and the value of Iraq as far as Iraqi-American relations.

Chris Grayling

The UK has one of the most robust aviation security measures in the world and at all times the safety and security of the public is our primary concern. We understand the frustration that these measures may cause and we are working with the aviation industry to minimise any impact. Our top priority will always be to maintain the safety of British nationals. I know the House will recognise that we face a constantly evolving threat from terrorism and must respond accordingly to ensure the protection of the public against those who would do us harm.

Redur Xelil

It is the first (agreement) of its kind. The agreement came into force today. This is what pushed many forces to cooperate and make alliances with the YPG. The Russian presence ... comes in agreement between (the YPG) and the Russian forces operating in Syria in the framework of cooperation against terrorism and to help train our forces on modern warfare and to build a direct point of contact with Russian forces.

Redur Xelil

It is the first (agreement) of its kind. The agreement came into force today.

Srivara Ransibrahmanakul

It doesn't really matter whether they confess or not because there is physical evidence in the firearms meant for terrorism.

Roy Beck

At first [Trump's message] was all about crime and terrorism. But he just kept improving, focusing his message more and more on what was good for the worker.

Chuck Schumer

Given the chance, I have no doubt he'll do it again on the Supreme Court. I have some real doubts about He has been a judge who has favored the wealthy interests over the middle class. Judge Gorsuch has repeatedly sided with corporations over working people, demonstrated a hostility toward women's rights, and most troubling, hewed to an ideological approach to jurisprudence that makes me skeptical that he can be a strong, independent Justice on the Court.

Christopher Soghoian - American Civil Liberties Union

Journalists play a very similar role to doctors in our society in that we trust them. And without trust they cannot operate. If they're using this to find a teenager who doesn't want to take an exam, it's not a tool that's reserved for high-profile terrorism cases or child abuse cases. The concern is it's becoming the tool of first resort.

Nanette Barragan - Homeland Security

Every member of Congress who's read classified briefings knows that the number-one terror threat is not coming through that south border wall. I said, look, what is the justification from taking away money from TSA and the Coast Guard, where there is a much bigger threat of terrorism, to plan out that south border wall? And I didn't really get an answer.

Steffen Seibert

She is convinced that the necessary, decisive battle against terrorism does not justify a general suspicion against people of a certain origin or a certain religion.

Faiza Patel

All empirical research shows that ideology is not the driver of terrorism–it has lots of different drivers and is hard to predict. Yes, there are these terrible ideas out there. But our function as a government is not to suppress ideas, but actually to deal with violence.

Patrick Leahy

On areas of surveillance and torture, what I've seen so far, his views are a lot different than mine. When Judge Gorsuch was working for the administration, at least based on the initial things I've looked at, he appears to be a cheerleader for President Bush's views on executive powers.

Nicholas Searle

We must steer away from ill-informed rhetoric. Knowing terrorists’ life stories can be key to countering their warped justification for taking up arms. Our collective consciousness, impelled by populist media, sees terrorists as demons driven by inhuman urges and hellish objectives, and ignores the fact that terrorists are just people. We’re urged to respond as crusaders, making plans to wage wars that will eradicate terrorism. Donald Trump has revived and reinvigorated this language, possibly largely owing to the dulcet tones in his ear of White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who may actually desire a global conflagration.

Matt Jacobs

The defendant embraced terrorism at a young age and made it his life's work.

Melody Wells

The defendant is a man who made terrorism his life story. He made a career out of violent jihad.

Stephane Dujarric - United Nations

There is also a need to address the underlying drivers of terrorism through continuing investments in conflict prevention, conflict resolution, countering violent extremism, peacekeeping, peacebuilding, sustainable and inclusive development, the enhancement and respect of human rights, and timely responses to humanitarian crises.

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.

Jennifer Rubin

What’s so bad about Trumpism? This: “This is how the [Stephen K.] Bannons and [Rep. Steve] Kings view the modern world: The West is threatened by hordes of swarthy outsiders, especially Mexicans and Muslims, and they are lonely defenders of the white Christian race against this insidious threat. There is no evidence that Trump has given this matter as much thought as they have, but, based on his public pronouncements, he has reached similar conclusions. That helps to explain why the administration is building a border wall, expanding deportations, and trying to keep out citizens of as many Muslim countries as possible. This isn’t about fighting terrorism or crime; it’s about fighting changing demographics. And it’s premised on an unspoken assumption that only white Christians are true Americans; all others are ‘somebody else.’ ”.

Gabe Roth

The picture these documents paint is that from the outset of his agency tenure, Judge Gorsuch was intimately involved in a range of administration initiatives, from detainee treatment to surveillance to judicial nominations. I'm looking forward to the release of additional documents, whether in response to the senator or to our FOIA lawsuit.

Dianne Feinstein

Please provide to the committee any materials related to any involvement you had in the issue of torture (including so-called 'enhanced interrogation techniques'), including this proposal.

Neil Gorsuch

Helped coordinate litigation efforts involving a number of national security matters – including the Darby photos litigation and FOIA case seeking a poll of Guantanamo Bay detainees.

Matthew Levitt

Empowering and incentivizing communities to be active in these cases is in the local and national interest, and the FBI would be the first to say this. In the next few years, you're doing to see people released from prison after being convicted on terrorism charges. There are no reentry programs within the U.S. prison system other than the typical parole officer, who doesn't do CVE stuff.

Omer Celik

If you look carefully, the European Union always talks about co-operating in the fight against terrorism and managing the migrant crisis. They cover up the other issues. When we look at the obligations EU should have fulfilled I don't see any reason why Turkey should maintain the migrant deal.

Jeff Sessions
John Kelly

Preventing and responding to terrorism at home encompasses thousands of national security personnel across the federal government – in effect, we admit individuals at risk for terrorism and then try to identify and stop them from carrying out their terrorist activities. This places unacceptable stress on our law enforcement resources, which could be better spent on other efforts to weaken those terrorist organizations, protect the homeland, and safeguard our national security.

Jeff Sessions
John Kelly

At present, more than 300 persons who came to the United States as refugees are under FBI investigation for potential terrorism-related activities.

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.

Douglas Chin

Sections 2 and 6 of the March 6, 2017 Executive Order violate the Immigration and Nationality Act by discriminating on the basis of nationality, ignoring and modifying the statutory criteria for determining terrorism-related inadmissibility, and exceeding the President's authority under the Immigration and Nationality Act. The entire history and culture of Hawaii is based upon nondiscrimination either in its constitution as well as its laws. Hawaii has 20 per cent foreign-born residents and 100,000 people who are not citizens as well as 20 per cent of our workforce that are not foreign born.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

We know the Netherlands and the Dutch from the Srebrenica massacre. We know how rotten their character is from their massacre of 8,000 Bosnians there. Nobody should try to give us lessons on morality, especially not those who have blood on their hands. The Netherlands, with its display of state terrorism, has caused huge damage to Europe and the EU. Now, for those who want to cooperate with the EU, it has ceased to be a symbol of human rights and freedom. Europe is too important to be left at the mercy of rogue states.

John Vaudreuil

We talk about the rule of law and how we do things in a free country. To me, that's a good way to fight terrorism.

Remi Crosson du Cormier

Democracy has two principal enemies – totalitarianism, and terrorism.

Andre Krouwel

The dominant issues in this campaign are immigration, integration, security, terrorism, identity. What you see is that this situation makes these themes so dominant that leftist themes ... are totally absent.

Theo Francken

Let me be very clear. This is about 20 cases of terrorism and 50 cases of heavy criminality. It's about simplifying the procedures of orders for leaving the territory.

Vladimir Putin

Russia has always been very firm against all forms of terrorism, whatever the guiding principle of that terrorism, whatever ideas are being championed by the people behind that terrorism. That is our fundamental position and it won't change, under any circumstances.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

We must accept the fact that one terrorist group can't be eliminated by another. As a country that has been fighting a war against terrorism for 35 years, our current enemies are terrorist groups like the Kurdish YPG, ISIL and al-Nusra.

Brittney Rezaei

But our goal was to make sure that if they are participating, they're following our laws in the Bay Area.

Bill Hing

Public safety is our highest priority. It takes good police work. I know it can sometimes be a very fine line.

Michael Andraychak

We want all persons to feel comfortable in contacting SFPD . . . to report crimes and emergencies without concern as to their immigrations status. The city has a history and tradition of demonstrations and other First Amendment activity, and the SFPD works with the community to help facilitate First Amendment activity. We are confident that [local, state and federal law enforcement partners] would alert the SFPD to any known credible threat against the city.

John Crew

This is a problem not just for San Francisco. It's a problem around the country of local police assigning officers to the FBI under arrangements that have not been scrutinized in the past, where local civil rights and racial profiling policies are going to be reevaluated in the era of the Trump administration.

Dave Tevelin

If it happened today, I'm not sure I'd be talking to you. Really. Now there's not much negotiating in terrorism incidents. It's not like they're going in to take hostages to make a statement and make a point. In today's world, they're going in to kill people, and that's the point they make.

Hassan Al-Wareeth

The decision is racist, first of all and secondly, if they really wanted to fight terrorism, there are nationals of other countries who are fully involved in the issue of terrorism and among those countries are the Gulf States. We have to communicate with the US government because there is a large Somali community in the United States.

Yesenia Villasenor

My biggest concern about this order is that we are specifically targeting people, innocent individuals that otherwise have no connection to terrorism or that do not present a risk, and this is harming everyday people, people who are travelling to this country for legitimate reasons.

Viktor Orban

Migration is the Trojan wooden horse of terrorism. The people that come to us don't want to live according to our culture and customs but according to their own – at European standards of living. We are still, at this moment, under siege. The migration flow has only slowed but it is not over. We have gained time to strengthen our lines of defense.

Maleeha Rizvi

For the last several weeks, we were not going to restaurants because of threats of terrorism, But celebration of the PSL final has brought us out. I guess this event has defeated terrorism.

Kim Pozniak - Catholic Relief Services

Many of the people targeted in the new executive order have fled the same terrorists Americans are afraid of. They are our allies in the fight against terrorism. It is a mistake to treat them as the enemy.

Olena Zerkal

Today I stand before the World Court to request protection of the basic human rights of Ukrainian people.

Lada Litvak

I want the world to understand that there wasn't any annexation. It was the legitimate will of the Crimean people. We really wanted to return to Russia and we managed to achieve it.

Jeff Sessions

We also know that people seeking to support or commit terrorist attacks here will try to enter through our refugee program. In fact, today more than 300 people who came here as refugees are under FBI investigation for potential terrorism-related activities.

Ahmed Jamal

It "reinforces the strategic alliance between Baghdad and Washington in many areas in the forefront in the fight against terrorism.

Donald J. Trump

You know, people cannot believe that President Obama is acting the way he acts and can't even mention the words radical Islamic terrorism. There's something going on. It's inconceivable. There's something going on. Mr. President, it was a great honor being with you and I look forward to being with you many, many more times. I'm getting along very well with him, other than a couple of statements that I responded to and we talked about it and smiled about it. And nobody is ever going to know because we're never going to be going against each other in that way.

Mark Rowley

The military progress squeezing the territory of Isis... I see that as good news but we mustn't assume that the terrorist threat is simply about Isis or simply about what's happening in Syria. Al-Qaida remain a threat and there are offshoots of both organisations. The military success is welcome but in and of itself it's not going to eradicate the terrorist problem.

Mark Rowley

It would be wrong to suggest it was of the same gravity as the threat from Daesh and Al-Qaida, but there are extreme right-wing groups who are trying to provoke violence in communities, trying to sow discord and divide communities and on occasion using violence.

Ben Wallace

It is not about spying and it is not about closing down debate and discussion on religion or politics. The Prevent duty brings countering violent radicalisation into the wider safeguarding fold. Isil use children to not only spread fear but to carry out murders. Da'esh see no difference between the UK and the middle east to unleash their terror. The horror of recent terrorist attacks in Europe and beyond is a shocking reminder of the threat we all face.

Jeff Sessions

Three of these nations are state sponsors of terrorism. The other three have served as safe havens for terrorists – countries where the government has lost control of territory to terrorist groups like Isil or al-Qaeda and its affiliates.

Li Keqiang

We will strengthen maritime and air defence as well as border controls and ensure the important operations related to countering terrorism, safeguarding stability, international peacekeeping and providing escorts on the high seas are well organised. We will boost military training and preparedness, so as to ensure that the sovereignty, security, and development interests are resolutely and effectively safeguarded.

Hannah Stuart

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

Hannah Stuart

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

Ed Royce

I am very concerned by reports of deep cuts that could damage efforts to combat terrorism, save lives and create opportunities for American workers.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

They need to be put on trial for aiding and abetting terrorism, the situation is so obvious and clear. Now they are asking us: 'why are you whipping up the issue?' Just you wait, we have only just started. We are going to expose all that you have done one by one in several international meetings.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

They need to be put on trial for aiding and abetting terrorism. They are telling us, 'Why are you whipping up the issue?'. Just you wait, we have only just started. We are going to expose all that you have done in several international meetings.

Donald J. Trump

This great aircraft carrier provides essential capabilities to keep us safe from terrorism and take the fight to the enemy for many years in the future.

Dmitry Peskov

Similarly, there has been no movement forward regarding cooperation in the fight against terrorism, which causes regret. Without waiting for these contacts to start, Russia has been consistently contributing to the fight against terrorism and scoring results. We have nothing to add to the expansive definition given by President Trump.

Sayed Zaffer Shah

Hundreds of Pashtuns are being arrested and harassed in the name of terrorism. We never said all Punjabis are terrorists, though Punjabi Taliban were involved in bombings. This discrimination will only spread hatred.

Jamal Khan

They were really angry after these blasts. They took away my grandfather and said he didn't have his identification, but we have been here for many years. The elders had to rush over and get him out of the police station.

Anwar Khan

The authorities think every Pashto speaker is a refugee or a terrorist. We are being targeted, but we, too, suffer from these blasts. May God destroy those who do this.

Dmitry Peskov

We have nothing to add to the expansive definition given by President Trump. Similarly, there has been no movement forward regarding cooperation in the fight against terrorism, which causes regret. Without waiting for these contacts to start, Russia has been consistently contributing to the fight against terrorism and scoring results.

Binali Yildirim

To be afraid of terrorism to spread fear through terror only benefits terrorism. That is why I say with pride, Turkey is as safe as the United States. Istanbul is as safe as Europe or Paris.

Donald J. Trump

"This great aircraft carrier provides essential capabilities to keep us safe from terrorism and take the fight to the enemy for many years in the future."

Mohammed Shaikhibrahim - Euronews

Egyptians here read this visit as an European and German recognition of Egypt's role in supporting regional stability and as also as support by Germany for recent economic procedures, plus Egyptian efforts in fighting terrorism inside and outside the country, which is in both sides' common interest.

Ryan Counsell

Are you the counter-terrorism police? I heard in Holland's cafes they're always on high alert. We tended to joke about terrorism a lot. If someone asks me about terrorism I'm going to tell them I like a bang in the morning too.

Hans-Georg Maassen

We receive between two and four credible tips on planned terrorist activity in Germany each day. We have to recognize that we are living in a different situation now.

István Ujhelyi

The effect of terrorism in Europe in recent years emphasised how fragile our appeal is as a destination in long-haul markets. This is not a time to put unnecessary obstacles in the way of one of the sectors most capable of generating employment.

Donald J. Trump

We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens, the widow of U.S. Navy Special Operator, Senior Chief William 'Ryan' Owens. Ryan died as he lived, a warrior and a hero, battling against terrorism and securing our nation. Ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemy. Ryan's legacy is etched into eternity. And Ryan is looking down right now. You know that. And he's very happy, because I think he just broke a record.

Geng Shuang

But one point is very clear. We oppose any form of terrorism and proactively participate in international cooperation to crack down on terrorism. We have long said that East Turkestan forces are a serious threat to China's security and we are willing to work with the international community to jointly crack down on East Turkestan separatist and terrorist forces.

Sebastian Gorka

After 8 years of obfuscation and disastrous Counterterrorism policies those 3 words are key to Victory against Global Jihadism.

Donald J. Trump

We will work with our allies, including our friends and allies in the Muslim world, to extinguish this vile enemy from our planet. We cannot allow a beachhead of terrorism to form inside America -- we cannot allow our nation to become a sanctuary for extremists. We are also taking strong measures to protect our nation from radical Islamic terrorism. It is not compassionate, but reckless, to allow uncontrolled entry from places where proper vetting cannot occur. Those given the high honour of admission to the United States should support this country and love its people and its values.

Donald J. Trump

According to data provided by the Department of Justice, the vast majority of individuals convicted for terrorism-related offenses since 9/11 came here from outside of our country. We have seen the attacks at home – from Boston to San Bernardino to the Pentagon and yes, even the World Trade Center.

Donald J. Trump

We cannot allow a beachhead of terrorism to form inside America. If we are guided by the well-being of American citizens then I believe Republicans and Democrats can work together to achieve an outcome that has eluded our country for decades. Save countless dollars, raise workers' wages, and help struggling families -- including immigrant families -- enter the middle class. Yet, in America, we do not enforce this rule, straining the very public resources that our poorest citizens rely upon. We are providing a voice to those who have been ignored by our media, and silenced by special interests.

Donald J. Trump

We cannot allow a beachhead of terrorism to form inside America - we cannot allow our Nation to become a sanctuary for extremists. We are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all its forms. The chorus became an earthquake - and the people turned out by the tens of millions, and they were all united by one very simple, but crucial demand, that America must put its own citizens first.

Donald J. Trump

Ryan died as he lived, a warrior and a hero, battling against terrorism and securing our nation. This was a mission that was started before I got here. And they lost Ryan. I just spoke to General Mattis, who reconfirmed that, and I quote, Ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemies. Ryan's legacy, is etched into eternity. And Ryan is looking down right now. You know that.

Donald J. Trump

It is not compassionate, but reckless, to allow uncontrolled entry from places where proper vetting cannot occur. We cannot allow a beachhead of terrorism to form inside America. We cannot allow our nation to become a sanctuary for extremists. That is why my Administration has been working on improved vetting procedures, and we will shortly take new steps to keep our Nation safe – and to keep out those who would do us harm.

Donald J. Trump

Our obligation is to serve, protect, and defend the citizens of the United States. We are also taking strong measures to protect our nation from radical Islamic terrorism. According to data provided by the Department of Justice, the vast majority of individuals convicted for terrorism-related offenses since 9/11 came here from outside of our country. We have seen the attacks at home – from Boston to San Bernardino to the Pentagon and yes, even the World Trade Center. We have seen the attacks in France, in Belgium, in Germany and all over the world.

Donald J. Trump

Ryan died as he lived: a warrior, and a hero – battling against terrorism and securing our nation. I just spoke to General Mattis, who reconfirmed that, and I quote, Ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemies. Ryan's legacy is etched into eternity. For as the Bible teaches us, there is no greater act of love than to lay down one's life for one's friends. Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country, and for our freedom – we will never forget him.

Donald J. Trump

I just spoke to General Mattis, who reconfirmed that, and I quote, Ryan was a part of a highly successful raid that generated large amounts of vital intelligence that will lead to many more victories in the future against our enemies. I believe that real and positive immigration reform is possible, as long as we focus on the following goals: to improve jobs and wages for Americans, to strengthen our nation's security, and to restore respect for our laws.

Donald J. Trump

For that reason, we will soon begin the construction of a great wall along our southern border. It will be started ahead of schedule and, when finished, it will be a very effective weapon against drugs and crime. It is not compassionate, but reckless, to allow uncontrolled entry from places where proper vetting cannot occur. Those given the high honor of admission to the United States should support this country and love its people and its values. We cannot allow a beachhead of terrorism to form inside America – we cannot allow our Nation to become a sanctuary for extremists.

Jesus Dureza

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

Lee Cheol Woo

Our National Intelligence Service told me that North Korea's General Bureau of Espionage was responsible for the terrorism and the assassination of Kim Jong Nam but what Malaysian authorities discovered is that it was North Korea's National Security Agency that took the lead. Since it was the North Korean National Security Agency as well as its Foreign Ministry, who were behind the terrorism, we can say that it was North Korea's state-led terrorism.

George W. Bush

I think it's very hard to fight the war on terrorism if we're in retreat.

Bashar al-Assad

It is not our purpose to share authority or to take authority but to shift authority from a dictator to the Syrian people, who have the right to choose the shape of the state.

Nasr al-Hariri

We have a lot of points that we share with this new administration of America. On the top of these priorities is fighting terrorism and reaching stability in Syria across or through a political transition and to face the state of Iran, which interferes not only in Syria but in Iraq and Yemen and in other countries.

Nasr El Hariri

We have a lot of points that we share with this new administration of America. On the top of these priorities is fighting terrorism.

Francois Hollande

There is terrorism and we must fight it together. I think that it is never good to show the smallest defiance toward an allied country. I wouldn't do it with the United States and I'm urging the U.S. president not to do it with France. I won't make comparisons but here, people don't have access to guns. Here, you don't have people with guns opening fire on the crowd simply for the satisfaction of causing drama and tragedy.

Gillian Christensen - Homeland Security

While DHS was asked to draft a comprehensive report on the seven countries, the document you're referencing was commentary from open source reporting versus an official, robust document with thorough interagency sourcing. It is clear on its face that it is an incomplete product that fails to find evidence of terrorism by simply refusing to look at all the available evidence.

Vladimir Putin

Our task is only to stabilize the legitimate authorities and deliver a final blow against international terrorism.

Haider al-Abadi

We are determined to chase terrorism that tries to kill our sons and citizens wherever it is found, so we gave orders to the air force command to strike Islamic State positions in (Iraqi town) Hosaiba and Albu Kamal inside Syrian territory as they were responsible for recent bombings in Baghdad. The heroes of the sky executed the operation and responded to the terrorists with amazing success.

Staffan de Mistura - United Nations

We face an uphill task. It will not be easy. There is a lot of tension and there is a lot suffering that everyone has been bearing, but we must apply ourselves to this task. We do know what will happen if we fail once again: More deaths, more suffering, more atrocities, more terrorism, more refugees.

Yahya Rasool

The counter-terrorism forces will be an additional force which will expedite the liberation of Mosul's western side.

Donald J. Trump

I do respect him. Well, I respect a lot of people, but that doesn't mean I'm going to get along with them. He's a leader of his country. I say it's better to get along with Russia than not. And if Russia helps us in the fight against ISIS - which is a major fight - and Islamic terrorism all over the world, major fight,- that's a good thing. Will I get along with him? I have no idea. It's very possible that I won't. There are a lot of killers. We've got a lot of killers. What do you think? Our country's so innocent?

Sean Spicer

Trump "in terms of his desire to combat radical Islamic terrorism... understands that people who want to express a peaceful position have every right under our Constitution.

Ewa Stenberg

Sure there's problems, but not at all on the scale that Donald Trump spoke about. It's not that dramatic and it's not terrorism.

Hwang Kyo-Ahn

The murder carried out in public at an international airport of a third country is an unforgivable and inhumane criminal act and clearly demonstrates the recklessness and brutality of the North Korean regime that will spare no avenues when it comes to perpetuating itself. As was seen in this case, the North Korean regime's terrorism tactics are getting bolder so we must be more vigilant about the possibility of terror by the North Korean regime against our government and people.

Haider al-Abadi

We call on our brave troops to start the push to liberate the rest of the city, to liberate people from the oppression and terrorism of Daesh. Our main mission is to liberate the people before liberating the land.

Geert Wilders

Look at the Islamization, how we let terrorism into the country. How we let the Moroccan scum go ahead without us doing anything against them.

Thomas De Maiziere

In a way we are dependent on each other because we are, in a way, in the same focus of international terrorism: we are together the West.

Angela Merkel

The joint fight against Islamic terrorism is one area where we have the same interests and we can work together.

Alexei Chesnakov

In that sense, it becomes part of the agenda for jointly countering international terrorism for the US and Russia.

Vladimir Putin

"It's in everyone's interest to resume dialogue between the intelligence agencies of the United States and other members of NATO,". "It's absolutely clear that in the area of counter-terrorism all relevant governments and international groups should work together".

Vladimir Putin

It's in everyone's interest to resume dialogue between the intelligence agencies of the United States and other members of NATO. It's absolutely clear that in the area of counter-terrorism all relevant governments and international groups should work together.

James Stavridis

One minute NATO is obsolete - the next minute he loves NATO. One minute NATO is an impediment and doesn't do anything for terrorism - the next minute NATO is the centerpiece of the global fight. Because of his personality: he's calm, he's centered, he's thoughtful, he's widely regarded with respect on both sides of the aisle in the United States.

Jakob Christensen - Danske Bank

This (inflation data) is important in that it continues a trend we have seen and fits in with this global reflation theme. 2.5 percent is still short of the 3 percent target that the central bank has but if this trend continues, the central bank will have to consider tightening monetary policy. There are some structural factors we should keep in mind - one is the impact of the fear of terrorism on tourism, and trade with Russia is also slow to pick up.

Mehdi Ben Gharbia

All violations mentioned in the report Amnesty ... are individual violations (and) are being investigated. We cannot accept these kind of violations in the new Tunisia. In Tunisia we will win our battle against terrorism, but also will win battle of human right values and we will continue to reform and change in mentalities.

Bashar al-Assad

All these factors would lead to trust, where you can send your troops. That's what happened with the Russians; they didn't only send their troops. Safe zones for Syrians could only happen when you have stability and security. It's much more practical and less costly to have stability than to create safe zones. It's not a realistic idea at all.

Ali Shamkhami

Cooperation between Iran and Russia to fight against terrorism in Syria has wide and comprehensive dimensions.

Vladimir Putin

"By joining our efforts, we could make a considerable contribution to settling these issues, including fighting international terrorism,"

Vladimir Putin

Ljubljana – and Slovenia in general – is of course a great place to hold such dialogue. If this meeting takes place someday, we have nothing against Ljubljana (as the venue). We always welcomed that and we hope that relations will be restored in full in all areas. It relates to trade and economic ties, security issues and various regions of the world, which are suffering from numerous conflicts. By pooling our efforts, we naturally would be able to significantly contribute to solving those issues, including the fight against international terrorism.

Bashar al-Assad

"We agree about this priority,". "That's our position in Syria, the priority is to fight terrorism.". "If you want to start genuinely, as United States ... it must be through the Syrian government,". "We are here, we are the Syrians, we own this country as Syrians, nobody else, nobody would understand it like us.". "We invited the Russians, and the Russians were genuine regarding this issue. If the Americans are genuine, of course they are welcome, like any other country that wants to defeat and to fight with the terrorists. Of course, with no hesitation we can say that,".

Bashar al-Assad

"All these factors would lead to trust, where you can send your troops. That's what happened with the Russians; they didn't only send their troops,"

Bashar al-Assad

We agree about this priority. That's our position in Syria, the priority is to fight terrorism. If you want to start genuinely, as United States ... it must be through the Syrian government.

Dawlat Waziri

The Afghan defence ministry supports any decision taken between the Afghan and American governments. This is a joint battle against terrorism and we support any possible way to tackle terrorism in the country.

Boris Schlossberg

None of those policy initiatives have been enacted; it's been much more toward protectionism and toward anti-terrorism. And the market, I think, is losing patience, and that is why you're seeing the whole Trump portfolio basket trade move off. Now, if he reasserts his economic policy and if he comes back to those ideas quickly, those trades are going to come right back. But if he again wallows in much more political issues as we go forward, I think you're going to see much more of a correction than you currently have seen.

Jean-Francois Martins

We have three aims, improve the look, make access easier and strengthen the protection of visitors and staff. Securing places tends to reassure tourists. What makes them flee is when the attacks come.

John McCain

When you lose a $75 million airplane and, more importantly, an American life is lost … I don't believe you can call it a success.

John McCain

When you lose a $75 million airplane and, more importantly, [an] American life is lost … I don't believe that you can call it a success. Unfortunately, the prison had been evacuated. But the brave men who [went] on that mission and risked their lives in an effort to rescue us prisoners of war were genuine American heroes. Because the mission failed did not in any way diminish their bravery and courage and willingness to sacrifice for their fellow Americans who were being held captive. Mr. Spicer should know that story.

Donald J. Trump

The threat from radical Islamic terrorism is very real, just look at what is happening in Europe and the Middle-East. Courts must act fast!

Barack Obama

When the administrations have common goals it makes cooperation easier. The military is the backbone of the relationship. We have a common enemy, which is terrorism.

John McCain

I would not describe any operation that results in the loss of American life as a success. When you lose a $75 million airplane and, more importantly, an American life is lost … I don't believe you can call it a success. Many years ago, when I was imprisoned in North Vietnam, there was an attempt to rescue the POWs. Unfortunately, the prison had been evacuated, but the brave men who took – risked their lives in an effort to rescue us prisoners of war were genuine American heroes.

Sean Spicer

He felt members of the media don't always cover some of those [terrorist] events to the extent that other events might get covered. Protests will get blown out of the water, and yet an attack or a foiled attack doesn't necessarily get the same coverage.

Richard Clifton

I have trouble understanding why we're supposed to infer religious animus when, in fact, the vast majority of Muslims would not be affected as residents of those nations – and where the concern for terrorism with those connected with radical Islamic sects is kind of hard to deny. We treat people from North Korea differently than we treat people from France.

Donald J. Trump

You've seen what happened in Paris and Nice. All over Europe it's happening. It's gotten to a point where it's not even being reported. And in many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn't want to report it. They have their reasons and you understand that. Why doesn't he show his birth certificate? We must do better!

Donald J. Trump

You've seen what happened in Paris, in Nice, all over Europe it's happening. It's gotten to a point where it's not even being reported. And in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn't want to report it. They have their reasons and you understand them.

Donald J. Trump

I don't know Putin, have no deals in Russia, and the haters are going crazy - yet Obama can make a deal with Iran, #1 in terror, no problem! Freedom, security and justice will prevail. We will defeat radical Islamic terrorism and we will not allow it to take root in our country. We're not going to allow it.

Donald J. Trump

Just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. If something happens blame him and court system. People pouring in. Bad! Freedom, security and justice will prevail. We will defeat radical Islamic terrorism and we will not allow it to take root in our country. We're not going to allow it.

David H. Schanzer

The notion that terrorism is an under-covered subject is preposterous. It's highly over-covered compared to the amount of violence that we face in society. One out of every 2,000 homicides since 9/11 have been linked to al-Qaida or ISIS-inspiration or control.

Donald J. Trump

Well I respect a lot of people but that doesn't mean I'm going to get along with them. He's a leader of his country. I say it's better to get along with Russia than not and if Russia helps us in the fight against ISIS which is a major fight and Islamic terrorism all over the world, major fight, that's a good thing. Will I get along with him? I have no idea. It's very possible I won't. A lot of killers. We got a lot of killers. You think our country is so innocent? You think our country is so innocent?

Donald J. Trump

Well, take a look at what we've done too. We've made a lot of mistakes. I've been against the war in Iraq from the beginning. There are a lot of killers. We've got a lot of killers. What, you think our country's so innocent? You think our country's so innocent? Well, I respect a lot of people but that doesn't mean I'm going to get along with them. He's a leader of his country. I say it's better to get along with Russia than not. And if Russia helps us in the fight against ISIS, which is a major fight, and Islamic terrorism all over the world.

Donald J. Trump

I respect a lot of people, but that doesn't mean I'm going to get along with them. He's a leader of his country. I say it's better to get along with Russian than not. And if Russia helps us in the fight against ISIS…and Islamic terrorism all over the world…major fight. That's a good thing. Will I get along with him? I have no idea. We got a lot of killers. What, you think our country's so innocent?

Mike Pence

If we were able to work with Russia to hunt down and destroy ISIS and confront radical Islamic terrorism, that would be a good thing. ''What you have in President Trump is someone who is not going to look in the rearview mirror so much as looking out the windshield.

Donald J. Trump

We will work with Ukraine, Russia and all other parties involved to help them restore peace along the border. I do respect [Putin], but I respect a lot of people. I say it's better to get along with Russia than not and if Russia helps us in the fight against ISIS, which is a major fight, and Islamic terrorism all over the world...that's a good thing.

Donald J. Trump

"What do you think? Our country's so innocent?". "I respect a lot of people, but that doesn't mean I'm going to get along with him. He's a leader of his country. I say it's better to get along with Russia than not. And if Russia helps us in the fight against ISIS, which is a major fight, and Islamic terrorism all over the world – that's a good thing,". "Will I get along with him? I have no idea.".

Claire Richert

He's taking measures to protect his country against terrorism and that's a good thing.

Angelina Jolie - United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees

Every time we depart from our values we worsen the very problem we are trying to contain. We must never allow our values to become the collateral damage of a search for greater security. Shutting our door to refugees or discriminating among them is not our way, and does not make us safer. The global refugee crisis and the threat from terrorism make it entirely justifiable that we consider how best to secure our borders.

Angelina Jolie - United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees

Refugees are men, women and children caught in the fury of war, or the cross hairs of persecution. Far from being terrorists, they are often the victims of terrorism themselves. Every government must balance the needs of its citizens with its international responsibilities. But our response must be measured and should be based on facts, not fear. We are lighting a fuse that will burn across continents, inviting the very instability we seek to protect ourselves against. Shutting our door to refugees or discriminating among them is not our way, and does not make us safer.

Sasha Riser-Kositsky - Eurasia Group

Pakistan's continuing loss of influence with the [U.S.] executive branch and Congress could result in some form of economic and travel sanctions. A senior White House official already suggested that Pakistan could be included on a list of terrorism-wracked countries whose citizens are now temporarily banned from entering the U.S.

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

As far as Iran goes, this is the single biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the world and I think it is wise to make certain that Iran recognizes that what it is doing is getting the attention of a lot of people. I don't see any need to increase the number of forces we have in the Middle East at this time. That's not in the cards right now. We always have the capability to do so. But right now I don't think it's necessary. It does no good to ignore it, it does no good to dismiss it.

Mark Dubowitz

This is part of a much broader strategy and merely a sign of coming attractions. The focus is clearly on missile procurement networks and represents a first step in the administration's escalation against Iran's missile program support for terrorism and other malign activities.

John McCain

Failing to do so now not only risks Ukraine's sovereignty, but the further erosion of American credibility. This deepening cooperation is a reminder that from maintaining security and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region to combatting radical Islamist terrorism, the U.S-Australia relationship is more important than ever.

Bahram Ghassemi

Instead of thanking Iran for its continued fight against terrorism, the American government is practically helping the terrorists by claims about Iran that are baseless, repetitive and provocative.

Peter Vincent

The trick for all of us is to have the proper safeguards in place to detect and capture that very small minority of committed terrorists, while the same time providing asylum and refugee status ... to those that are truly fleeing terrorism, not committing acts of terrorism.

Michael Flynn

The Obama administration failed to respond adequately to Tehran's maligned actions, including weapons transfers, support for terrorism, and other violations of international norms. President Trump has severely criticized the various agreements reached between Iran and the Obama administration, as well as the United Nations, as being weak and ineffective. Instead of being thankful to the United States in these agreements, Iran is now feeling emboldened. As of today, we are officially putting Iran on notice.

Michael Flynn

Iran is now feeling emboldened. The Obama administration failed to respond adequately to Tehran's malign actions – including weapons transfers, support for terrorism and other violations of international norms. President Trump has severely criticized the various agreements reached between Iran and the Obama administration, as well as the United Nations – as being weak and ineffective.

Mark Cuban

It's horrible! Look, let's just be real clear. The ban was half-assed and half-baked. If the goal was security, why do you leave off any other countries that hosted terrorism? That's like locking your front door and leaving all your windows open. It was half-baked, it wasn't thought out, it was rushed and it was ridiculous. And when something like that happens it calls into question the management skills of the guy in charge.

Michael Flynn

As of today, we are officially putting Iran on notice. The Obama Administration failed to respond adequately to Tehran's malign actions – including weapons transfers, support for terrorism, and other violations of international norms.

Michael Flynn

As of today we are officially putting Iran on notice. The Obama Administration failed to respond adequately to Tehran's malign actions–including weapons transfers, support for terrorism, and other violations of international norms. The Trump Administration condemns such actions by Iran that undermine security, prosperity, and stability throughout and beyond the Middle East and place American lives at risk. President Trump has severely criticized the various agreements reached between Iran and the Obama Administration, as well as the United Nations – as being weak and ineffective.

Mark Cuban

You don't condemn an entire country based on the mistakes of a few. We're a country of hopes and dreams and the American Way. The wider we take that, the safer I believe we'll be. It's not that I don't understand. We're all terrified of terrorism. We're all terrified the next event could be near us or someone close to us. But it's the old sports analogy: Character isn't revealed when things are going well. Character is revealed when you're under stress and being challenged. We'll see what the character of this country is.

James Jay Carafano

They knew what they were getting into when they wrote this policy. They knew everybody was going to hate them. And they did it anyway, because they thought it was the right thing to do for national security. This was the administration trying to get ahead of what is an emergent threat that every terrorism expert in the world recognizes. And to make sure we can cut off the pipelines, so foreign fighters don't come from those seven countries to the United States.

Oussama Jammal

USCMO calls on elected officials to reject the anti-Muslim rhetoric touted by the Trump administration in the name of national security.

Aaron David Miller

The executive order restricting immigration that President Donald Trump signed Friday is unlikely to accomplish the goal its title suggests of protecting the nation from foreign terrorist entry into the U.S., principally because the more serious threat the U.S. faces is from potential homegrown terrorists. The order makes counterterrorism harder. It has already drawn severe criticism from the Iraqi government, whose forces are working closely with U.S. forces against ISIS, and from Iraqi politicians now threatening to impose travel restrictions on Americans entering Iraq.

Angela Merkel

The fight against terrorism does not justify such general action against particular countries and people of a particular faith.

Angela Merkel

The necessary and decisive battle against terrorism does not in any way justify putting groups of certain belief under general suspicion – in this case people of Muslim belief or of a certain origin. In my opinion, this act runs contrary to the basic principles of international refugee assistance and international cooperation.

Chuck Schumer

This is a blanket ban. It hurts innocent people and doesn't stop terrorism. It's just appalling. It was done in such a sloppy and careless way. Major agencies – the Border Patrol, Customs didn't even know about it. There were major holes in how it was done. It almost seems like back-of-the envelope. I think we're going to ask about it for just about every one. This is so important to America. Aren't the American people entitled to know the positions of these Cabinet people before they come in?

Ben Sasse

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

Matthew Ball

The ban is terrible. It's terrible for what it says about our country. It's terrible for what it says to our allies who we fight with overseas. It's terrible for what it does to real people, struggling to flee terrorism in their home countries, who now have nowhere to go.

John McCain
Lindsey Graham

It is clear from the confusion at our airports across the nation that President Trump's executive order was not properly vetted. We are particularly concerned by reports that this order went into effect with little to no consultation with the Departments of State, Defense, Justice, and Homeland Security. This executive order sends a signal, intended or not, that America does not want Muslims coming into our country. That is why we fear this executive order may do more to help terrorist recruitment than improve our security.

Donald J. Trump

Americans are saddened this morning with the news that a life of a heroic service member has been taken in our fight against the evil of radical Islamic terrorism. The sacrifices made by the men and women of our armed forces, and the families they leave behind, are the backbone of the liberty we hold so dear as Americans, united in our pursuit of a safe nation and freer world. My deepest thoughts and humblest prayers are with the family of this fallen service member. I also pray for a quick and complete recovery for the brave service members who sustained injuries.

Mitch McConnell

I think it's a good idea to tighten the vetting process But I also think it's important to remember that some of our best sources in the war against radical Islamic terrorism are Muslims, both in this country and overseas.

Dieter Janecek

Donald Trump is no longer a reliable partner. If this insanity is not rescinded, that one should look into whether it is possible to impose a travel ban on him and (White House adviser) Stephen Bannon, the author of this unconstitutional rule.

Sigmar Gabriel

We are determined to protect the rights of our citizens and will take rapid action within the European Union about the steps that are now needed.

Steve Kerr

As someone whose family member was a victim of terrorism, having lost my father, if we're trying to combat terrorism by banishing people from coming to this country, by really going against the principals of what our country's about and creating fear, it's the wrong way to go about it. If anything, we could be breeding anger and terror. I think it's shocking. I think it's a horrible idea. I feel for all the people who are affected. Families are being torn apart and I worry in the big picture what this means to the security of the world.

Steffen Seibert

The German Chancellor deeply regrets the US President's decision to ban refugees and immigration of certain countries from entering the United States. She is convinced that the necessary fight against terrorism does not justify to place people of certain nationalities or beliefs under general suspicion.

Steffen Seibert

She is convinced that even the necessary, resolute fight against terrorism doesn't justify putting people of a particular origin or particular faith under general suspicion. The German government will now examine what consequences the U.S. government's measures have for German citizens with dual citizenship and, if necessary, represent their interests toward our American partners.

Steffen Seibert

She is convinced that even the necessary, decisive battle against terrorism does not justify putting people of a specific background or faith under general suspicion.

Ammar Sawan

My dream, even before the war in Syria, was to live in America. We are not terrorists and we don't support terrorism.

Donald J. Trump

I'm signing an executive action to begin a great rebuilding of the armed services of the United States, developing a plan for new planes, new ships new resources, and new tools for our men and women in uniform, and I'm very proud to be doing that. Our military strength will be questioned by no one. But neither will our dedication to peace. I'm establishing new vetting measures to keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States of America. We don't want them here. ... We only want to admit those into our country who support our country and love deeply our people.

Armando Rios Piter

We should stop collaborating with the United States, with this hostile administration specifically, regarding security issues, regarding anti-terrorism that we've been working together (on) for the last years. I think we will retaliate in the states of the Corn Belt. I think we should start thinking of not buying any more corn to those states.

Thomas De Maiziere

Rising right-wing terrorism is being thwarted by the security authorities. This is demonstrated by the measures taken today and this is shown by bans on these organisations last year. The rule of law also remains determined and vigilant.

Tareck El Aissami

There is one organization in particular that doesn't deserve the name 'political party,' an organization forged in the shadow of terrorism and violent actions: Popular Will.

Ted Cruz

I am encouraged that, unlike the previous administration, one of President Trump's top priorities is to defeat radical Islamic terrorism. To augment the efforts of the new administration, this legislation I have introduced will reinforce the authority of the states and governors to keep their citizens safe.

Mark Toner

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

Donald J. Trump

We have to get rid of ISIS we have no choice. Radical Islamic terrorism. And I said it yesterday, it has to be erradicated just off the face of the earth. This is evil, this is evil.

Donald J. Trump

For many decades we've enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry, subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military. We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones and unite the civilised world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.

Donald J. Trump

We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the earth. At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.

Barack Obama

History will cast a harsh judgment on this aspect of our fight against terrorism and those of us who fail to bring it to a responsible end. Guantanamo is contrary to our values and undermines our standing in the world, and it is long past time to end this chapter in our history.

Christopher J. Nassetta - Hilton Worldwide Holdings

What we saw last year in our business, real time, was corporate America was very nervous for a whole bunch of reasons. What was going on in the election, what was going on with terrorism around the world and they stopped traveling.

Haider al-Abadi

Terrorism uses the weapon of sectarianism in Iraq and Syria ... in order to drive people and communities apart and take control of them. (We must) not allow the conditions that existed before Daesh (Islamic State).

Sergey Lavrov

If the NATO forces do not see any other place for themselves aside from the Russian-Estonian border, it means their Intelligence services are not doing a good job as they don't see what is happening in other areas.

Sergey Lavrov

I hope our cooperation in regards to the Syrian crisis and fighting terrorism will be more successful than the one we had with President Obama's administration.

Sergey Lavrov

Donald Trump has unique views that differ from the views of his predecessors, both Democrats and Republicans. And at the core of it is the interest of United States as Donald Trump sees it. When we hear that his main focus is fighting terrorism, of course we will support it because this is actually what our American partners have been missing up until now.

Sergey Lavrov

We've seen some poor accusations that don't hold water, that since have been shrugged off by the British and their American counterparts who tried to jeopardize the new administration.

Alexey Malashenko

One single Syria is not enough. That's why we need one more state for the Russian presence not only in Syria but generally in the Middle East. Libya is a convenient territory for it. It's complete chaos and you can always say that Russia helps to fight terrorism.

Abdallah Bilhaq

We hope for a return of the Russian state to its role as a support of Libya's armed forces, which have been abandoned by most countries in their war against terrorism.

Donald J. Trump

Let's wait and see what happens. Don't let's jump ahead of ourselves. I want to be prudent. He won't be worse than Obama, that's all I dare say. Obama has left the world plagued by terrorism. In Latin America, he will be remembered for three coups.

Talib Shaghati

The forces who have the skills to fight guerrilla warfare is only the Iraq's Counter-Terrorism Service (CTS). They have flexibility and can act quickly.

Alexandre de Juniac - Air France-KLM

The threat of terrorism, questions over the durability of the economic upswing, rising oil prices and increasing protectionist rhetoric are among the concerns.

Binali Yildirim

They ask, why are you keeping yourselves occupied with constitutional amendments (when) there is terrorism? Look, it's today that we have the greatest need for a constitutional reform.

Ned Price

Such cowardly acts can never be justified, and we call on all to send a clear and unequivocal message that terrorism must never be tolerated. We extend our deepest condolences to the families of the victims and our hopes for quick and full recovery for those who were wounded.

Marlin Ritzman

During our initial investigation we found no ties to terrorism. He broke no laws when he came into our office making comments about mind control. He was a walk-in complaint. This is something that happens at FBI offices around the country every day.

Rick Scott

This was a tough day for our state. Clearly a senseless, evil act happened, where according to law enforcement five individuals have lost their lives and we know there are still people fighting for their life. The… What's important to me is that we will never tolerate things like this in our state. Whoever's responsible, we'll do everything we can to hold them accountable.

George Piro - FBI

We will be pursuing every angle to try to determine the motive behind this attack.

Bill Nelson

We don't know a motive at this point. This could well be someone who is mentally deranged, or in fact it could be someone who had a much more sinister motive that we have to worry about every day, and that is terrorism. We can't conclude that.

Haidar al-Abadi

The Iraqi army today has combat experience it has won in the war against terrorism ... and is achieving victories and is clearing cities and villages. The fight against terrorism is in its final round. Our forces ... will cut off the head of the snake and clear all of Mosul soon, with God's help.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

To present the country which is leading the greatest struggle against DAESH as one supporting terrorism is what the terror organization wants,'' referring to the Islamic State group by its other name. In Turkey, no one's way of life is under any threat. Those who claim this have to prove it. It is my duty to protect everyone's rights. To say Turkey has surrendered to terrorism is to take sides with the terrorists and terror organizations.

Eduard Mikhailov

Maybe just use some combat systems and so on. We will show you what we can do, and we will see what you can do, and show us. The biggest problem now in the world is terrorism and piracy, and all our exercises we have, for example, with you we will have to fight these problems and we will show you what we can do and we will see what you can do and show us.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Despite the sad start in the early hours of 2017, we strongly maintain our expectations for the new year. To present the country which is leading the greatest struggle against Daesh as one supporting terrorism is what terror organization wants. In Turkey, no one's way of life is under any threat. Those who claim this have to prove it. It is my duty to protect everyone's rights.

Haider al-Abadi

The terrorists will attempt to attack civilians in order to make up for their losses, but we assure the Iraqi people and the world that we are able to end terrorism and shorten its life.

Francois Hollande

We have a common enemy: it's terrorism, it's Daesh, it's fundamentalism. This enemy, we need to hunt it down in places where it exists – in Iraq, in Syria. But also we need to understand the links which exist between these terrorist groups and a certain number of individuals who are manipulated and who organise attacks in several countries.

Paula Daian

I think the most important thing is that we keep living our lives the way we have been and the way we planned, that is the only logical response we can have to terrorism so that we can actually fight it in our day-to-day lives.

Francois Hollande

But we have not finished with the scourge of terrorism. We will have to continue fighting it, abroad, that's the aim of our missions in Mali, Syria and Iraq.

Haider al-Abadi

We are determined to annihilate terrorism and we are able to shorten its age.

Francois Hollande

We will fight them like (we fight) all jihadists ... since they are attacking us, since they prepare attacks on our own territory. We are preparing for these returns and the very particular processing of these children. Everything that contributes to reconstructing Iraq is an additional step to avoiding Daesh strikes on our own territory. Daesh is stepping back and Daesh will be defeated.

Pope Francis

The loss of the ties that bind us, so typical of our fragmented and divided culture, increases this sense of orphanhood and, as a result, of great emptiness and loneliness. The lack of physical (and not virtual) contact is cauterizing our hearts and making us lose the capacity for tenderness and wonder, for pity and compassion.

Pope Francis

Unfortunately, violence has stricken even in this night of good wishes and hope. Pained, I express my closeness to the Turkish people. I pray for the many victims and for the wounded and for the entire nation in mourning. I ask the Lord to sustain all men of good will to courageously roll up their sleeves to confront the plague of terrorism and this stain of blood that is covering the world with a shadow of fear and a sense of loss.

Francois Hollande

In history, there are moments when everything can change dramatically. We are living through one. So, in less than five months, you will have to make a choice. It will be decisive for France.

Francois Hollande

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

Francois Hollande

You've continued to live, to work, to go out, to move around, to cherish freedom. You can be proud of yourselves. But we're not done with the plight of terrorism. We have to keep on fighting it. This is the reason for our military operations abroad, in Mali, in Syria, in Iraq – Iraq where I'll be going the day after tomorrow (January 2) to salute our troops. Vive la République! Vive la France.

Charbel Wardini

I lost my brother because of terrorism. If you tell me terrorism, I will go fight against them.

Francois Hollande

We're not done with the plight of terrorism. We have to keep on fighting it. This is the reason for our military operations abroad, in Mali, in Syria, in Iraq – Iraq where I'll be going the day after tomorrow to salute our troops.

Angela Merkel

Many attach to 2016 the feeling that the world had turned upside down or that what for long had been held as an achievement is now being questioned. The European Union for example.

Angela Merkel

And, yes, Europe should focus on what can really be better than the national state. But we Germans should never be led to believe that each could have a better future by going it alone.

Angela Merkel

And yes, it is especially bitter and despicable if terror attacks are carried out by people who are allegedly looking for protection in our country, people who have been enjoying our country's willingness to help and who now ridicule it with their acts. And, yes, Europe should focus on what can really be better than the national state. But we Germans should never be led to believe that each could have a better future by going it alone.

Binali Yildirim

It is open to everyone because this process aims to stop the fighting and killings. We don't think anyone would give their consent to see people dying for a meaningless war. Therefore any groups who are not involved in terrorism and who are in favour of peace and brotherhood can be part of this process, especially the United Nations, United States and coalition forces.

Vikas Swarup

As a consequence of this decision, the UN Security Council (UNSC) has again been prevented from acting against the leader of a listed terrorist organisation. We had expected China would have been more understanding of the danger posed to all by terrorism and would join India and others in fighting the common challenge of terrorism.

Jan Zalewski - Verisk Maplecroft

The countless unpredictable consequences that will continue to show in the coming weeks and months mean that it is, in effect, a huge gamble. Inflicting such huge costs for what is an uncertain outcome is problematic. One of the major problems with the demonetization move is that success is so difficult to measure. In and of itself, it can't end black money, stop terrorism funding and the counterfeiting of notes.

Maksim Sokolov

Today, the main theories do not include terrorism, so we assume that either technical problems or a piloting error may have been the cause.

Pope Francis

Fundamentalist terrorism exploits even children. Peace to those who have lost a person dear to them as a result of brutal acts of terrorism, and to those who have sown fear and death into the hearts of so many countries and cities. Uncertainty in the midst of much, but far from universal, prosperity is a sign of our trust being in the wrong things. Welby said the world's economic gains have still left too many people behind.

Angela Merkel

We have also made progress this year on the very important issue of deporting Tunisian citizens who have no right to stay in Germany. I told the Tunisian president that we have to significantly speed up the deportation process and increase the number of people sent back. We can be relieved at the end of this week that the acute danger is over. However the danger of terrorism in general endures, as it has for several years. We all know that.

Thomas De Maiziere

I'm very relieved that this attacker poses no risk anymore. Although this manhunt was successful, the threat of terrorism is unchanged for Germany. It remains high, the security authorities remain vigilant.

Greg Barton

Densus 88 has become better than pretty well any other counter-terrorism group in the world. They have had an incredible workload and they have become remarkably good at what they do.

Tito Karnavian

The focus is (protecting) against terrorism, especially in Jakarta and Bali, because these are the traditional targets.

Abdelkader Amri

I ask him to turn himself into the police. If it is proved that he is involved, we dissociate ourselves from it. We reject terrorism and terrorists – we have no dealings with terrorists.

Miles Pomper

Expanding our nuclear arsenal will do nothing to prevent nuclear proliferation or prevent nuclear terrorism. We have more than enough nuclear weapons as it is.

Kellyanne Conway

He said during the campaign long after he originally proposed that that this would be more strictly tied to countries where we know they have a history of terrorism and that this is not a complete ban.

Stephan Mayer - Csu

In my view we experienced a major shift on Monday. Terrorism has reached a new level in Germany. It's shaken the nation and citizens are worried. I think citizens wouldn't accept it if we simply returned to the political order of the day.

Peter Mallouk - Lehman Brother Holdings

An all-time high by itself is nothing to be scared about. Anything can happen in the stock market, a terrorism event, a war, a trade war. That's why an investor should have money in bonds, so that your short-term needs, your intermediate-term needs can be met from bonds.

Ralf Jaeger

Security agencies exchanged information about this person in the joint counter-terrorism centre, the last time was in November.

Charles Hecker

Russia wants a southern oil and gas pipeline and it's going to have to go through Turkey. So they are going to have to learn to like each other no matter what happens in either of those two countries.

Frans Timmermans - European Commission

With today's proposals, we strengthen our legal means to disrupt and cut off the financial sources of terrorists and criminals.

Sergey Lavrov

As our presidents have agreed yesterday this tragedy forces all of us to fight terrorism even more decisively and makes our meeting today even more relevant.

Roland Ries

We're not going to give in to blackmail and terrorism. That would be tantamount to handing victory to them and their propaganda battle against the West.

Vladimir Putin

A crime has been committed and it is without a doubt a provocation aimed at spoiling the normalization of Russo-Turkish relations and spoiling the Syrian peace process which is being actively pushed by Russia, Turkey, Iran and others. We must know who directed the killer's hand. There can be only one response – stepping up the fight against terrorism. The bandits will feel this happening.

Maria V. Zakharova

We regard this as a terrorist act. Terrorism will not win and we will fight against it decisively. Don't forget Aleppo, don't forget Syria!

Maria V. Zakharova

Terrorism will not win and we will fight against it decisively. The memory of an outstanding Russian diplomat, Andrei Gennadyevich Karlov, a person who did a great deal to fight terrorism in his diplomatic post, will always be in our hearts.

Vladimir Putin

Everything that is happening in Palmyra is the result of uncoordinated action. I've already said many times that to be effective in the battle against terrorism we need to unite our efforts. The question of Palmyra is purely symbolic. Aleppo is much more important from a military-political point of view.

Sasha Riser-Kositsky - Eurasia Group

Despite effusive praise for Pakistan and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif during their initial call, Trump's suspicion of immigration from terrorism-prone Muslim countries, public admiration for India, harsh rhetoric toward China (Pakistan's 'all-weather' friend), and hawkish political appointments suggest that U.S. relations with Pakistan will suffer over the next four years.

Ban Ki-moon - United Nations

Aleppo has been liberated from terrorists and those who toyed with terrorism. Aleppo has returned to the nation.

Edward Snowden

So [people say], Well, we still want something to happen. Let's make the companies do this.' And they always start with the most offensive types of ideas ... things like terrorism.....We're going to get all these companies, Google, Facebook, whoever, to come together to make a database of what we think is terrorist content.

Mustafa Tolba

We are all brothers whether Muslim or Christian and we reject such acts. The government should set up military courts to speed up trials and verdicts when it comes to terrorism cases.

Jean-Marc Ayrault

The battle for Aleppo is not aiming to defeat terrorism but to try to eradicate all political opposition, and they aim above all to use violence to shore up a dictator who is scorned.

Benjamin Netanyahu

Israel condemns all terrorism in Turkey and expects that Turkey will condemn all terrorist attacks in Israel. The fight against terrorism must be mutual. It must be mutual in condemnation and in countermeasures, and this is what the state of Israel expects from all countries it is in contact with, including Turkey.

Bashar al-Assad

Aleppo will completely change the course of the battle in all of Syria. The battle of Aleppo will be a gain, but ... it doesn't mean the end of the war in Syria. It is a significant landmark towards the end of the battle, but the war in Syria will not end until terrorism is eliminated. Terrorists are there in other areas, so even if we finish in Aleppo, we will carry on with the war against them.

Donald J. Trump

We will stop racing to topple foreign regimes that we know nothing about, that we shouldn't be involved with. Instead, our focus must be on defeating terrorism and destroying ISIS [Islamic State of Iraq and Syria], and we will.

Barack Obama

So rather then offer false promises, that we can eliminate terrorism by dropping more bombs, or deploying more and more troops, or fencing ourselves off from the rest of the world, we have to take a long view of the terrorist threat. And we have to pursue a smart strategy that can be sustained.

Josh Earnest

The strategy that President Obama has put in place is more effective, it keeps us safe, it has fewer American men and women in harm's way, and it costs American taxpayers a lot less.

Barack Obama

I have been consistently in awe of your performance and the way you carried out your missions.

Deirdre Fike - FBI

Information was relayed this morning to the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force from our international partners that there was a potential threat from an anonymous phone call that was made on a public safety line. We continue to work this investigation and coordinating with our local partners and international partners.

Sinead McSweeney - Twitter

Since the middle of 2015, we have suspended more than 360,000 accounts for violating Twitter's policy on violent threats and the promotion of terrorism. A large proportion of these accounts have been removed by technical means, including our proprietary spam-fighting tools.

Shaida Abdali

Unless we take a collective measure to fight terrorism, to fight the breeding ground for terrorism, the safe sanctuary, we will not be able to bring peace and stability either to Afghanistan or to anywhere else in the region, including India.

Bahram Ghassemi

The two Iranians are lawyers who had gone to Kenya to provide their jailed Iranian clients in Kenya with legal counseling. Police arrested them as they returned from a meeting with their clients in prison.

Vladimir Putin

I certainly hope we can join forces with the US in fighting the real not imaginary threats which is international terrorism. This is exactly the task that our military is trying to solve in Syria. The terrorists have suffered great losses. The army and the navy of Russia has proved convincingly that they can work effectively far from home.

Vladimir Putin

It's important to normalize and develop our bilateral ties on an equal and mutually beneficial basis. We share responsibility for ensuring global security and stability and strengthening the non-proliferation regime. We hope to join efforts with the United States in the fight against a real rather than dreamt-up threat – global terrorism. Our servicemen in Syria are fulfilling that task.

Cohen Amanya

My clients pleaded not guilty and have been detained by the ATPU (Kenya's Anti Terrorism Police Unit) for further interrogation.

Maqbul Ahmad

The government is consistently denying the actual presence of terrorism in Bangladesh. Rather they are using it as an effective instrument of repression of Islamists.

Adam Schiff

I was kind of scared with everything going on in the media. I'm a Muslim, it's not what media portrays me to be,' he told the newspaper. If people look at me, a Muslim praying, I don't know what they're going to think, what's going to happen. But I don't blame them. It's the media that put that picture in their heads.

Mohamed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani

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

Craig Stone

It just hit everybody who was in front. After that everybody was shouting, 'Run! Run! Run!'.

Adam Schiff

Here in the United States, our most immediate threat still comes from lone attackers that are not only capable of unleashing great harm, but are also extremely difficult, and in some cases, virtually impossible to identify or interdict.

John McKay

Who is going to stop people from smoking pot in a residence in Denver? Federal agents? They are going to stop doing terrorism investigations and start arresting people for pot? That, to me, is crazy.

Ed Royce

No one should rule anywhere near as long as Fidel Castro did. His legacy is one of repression at home, and support for terrorism abroad. Sadly, Raul Castro is no better for Cubans who yearn for freedom.

Benjamin Netanyahu

Any fire that's caused by arson, and by incitement to arson – is terrorism for all intent and purposes, and we will deal with it accordingly. This is my directive to the security forces, police, the GSS, and the IDF: we will repay every act of lawlessness. Anyone who will try or has tried to burn down parts of the State of Israel will be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

Benjamin Netanyahu

Every fire that was caused by arson, or incitement to arson, is terrorism by all accounts – and we will treat it as such. Whoever tries to burn parts of Israel will be punished for it severely.

Axel Voss

EU citizens will have the same rights as U.S. citizens when they seek judicial redress before U.S. courts. This is a major step for the enforcement of fundamental rights for EU citizens.

Omer Celik

This damnable terror is continuing to target our people. We shall continue our struggle against terrorism until the end in the name of humanity.

Milo Yiannopoulos

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

Christiane Paul

We have to remember what we are – that we're human beings and please don't have fear and don't be afraid from terrorism attacks. You must remember that we all belong together and have to fight against the real problems of the world.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

As a country that suffers from terrorism, we cannot tolerate the fact that PKK members freely travel in European countries and walk through the corridors of the European Parliament carrying posters of the terrorist PKK leader (Abdullah Ocalan).

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

I hope that in the upcoming process, this will be reassessed, especially by the United States, and positive steps will be taken so that terrorism's back is broken and Turkey is rid of the threat of terrorism.

Jared Ragland

The value of the internet comes from its flexibility. We don't think it would be helpful to start treating it like a public utility that can be walled off behind borders.

Donald J. Trump

After seven years the Arab-Israeli peace process is at a standstill, al Qaeda terrorism has been replaced by ISIS terrorism. The situation in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Yemen are in shambles. Iranian regional bullying is shamelessly escalating.

Yu Weimin

Big internet companies are the ones with the means to fight cyber terrorism, which is why we need more cooperation between the private and public sector.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Germany, we are concerned by your stance. You are encouraging terrorism.

Manuel Valls

Yes, terrorism will strike us again. We have all the resources to resist and all the strength to win.

Manuel Valls

Yes, terrorism will strike us again. But, yes, we have within ourselves the resources to resist and the strength to win. We Europeans will defeat Islamist terrorism.

Numan Kurtulmus

Turkey has to fight terrorism on so many different fronts. We are trying to clear the state institutions from Gulenists. At the same time we are fighting against Kurdish militants and Islamic State.

Donald J. Trump

He refuses to use the term 'radical', Islamic', terrorism'. He refuses to use the term. I don't even know if he knows what the hell is going on. I really don't.

Narendra Modi

Terrorism is a frightening threat. So many have lost their lives because of it. But have you ever thought about how these terrorists get their money? Enemies from across the border run their operations using fake currency notes. This has been going on for years. Many times, those using fake five hundred and thousand rupee notes have been caught and many such notes have been seized.

Francois Hollande

This American election opens a period of uncertainty. I would like to approach it with lucidity and clarity. The United States are a leading partner of France and what is at stake is peace, the fight against terrorism, the situation in the Middle East, economic relations and the preservation of the planet. These are the main issues. I will engage without delay in a discussion with the new American administration.

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

We face a challenging new security environment, including hybrid warfare, cyberattacks, the threat of terrorism. U.S. leadership is as important as ever. ... A strong NATO is good for the United States, and good for Europe.

Thomas De Maiziere

We don't want terrorism to take place in Germany,'' he said. We don't want terrorism to be exported from Germany.

Hillary Clinton

I will be taking the earliest opportunity to speak to whoever the winner of that contest is and talking to them about the special relationship that the UK has with the US. That relationship spans a whole range of issues, not just trade but also dealing with terrorism, security matters and defense matters as well.

Gerry Northwood

Recent incidents off Somalia, the Bab al-Mandab and wider Indian Ocean indicate an increased threat level to shipping from piracy and maritime terrorism.

Bill Clinton

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

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

They (Western critics) should not concern themselves with trifles. We know well who they are, we have studied their history closely. I got to know them very well during my 14-year-old tenure as a prime minister and a president.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Europe, as a whole, is abetting terrorism. Even though they declared the PKK a terrorist organisation, this is clear ... We see how the PKK can act so freely and comfortably in Europe.

Donald J. Trump

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

Frank-Walter Steinmeier

The fight against terrorism cannot be used as a justification for silencing the political opposition or even putting them behind bars.

Vishnu Gupta

Trump's victory is confirmed early, due to his thoughts against Islamic terrorism and love for India and Hindus.

Binali Yildirim

If they are elected but go hand in hand with terrorism, they of course need to be made to account. Occasionally one might have to resort to such precautions for the sake of security. as a precaution. Once the danger is gone, everything will return to normal.

Binali Yildirim

We have no problem with press freedom. This is what we can't agree with our European friends. They always bring up press freedom when we take steps in our fight against terrorism.

Ronald T. Hosko - FBI

Could Jim Comey go over to the White House and brief on terrorism intelligence or a terrorism strike, and what the bureau is doing about it or has done about it, and keep that in a separate box? Yes.

Lynne Owens

We want to lessen the harm to our communities and to prevent the possibility of a marauding terrorist attack in the UK. The UK's illegal firearms market is still geared mainly to criminals using weapons to protect against one another or to target one another, but we must be clear that one gun in the wrong hands in a public space is all it takes to cause devastation.

Mark Rowley

You do get gang members, criminals, people who are already angry, violent, difficult people causing problems in communities, who perhaps get given a clearer purpose for their violence by a terrorist ideology, whether they pick that up on the streets or in prison. Those gang criminality links are an issue that concerns us. We have seen evidence of it potentially linking firearms into terrorism.

Faisal al-Salmi

We have become an independent state thanks to God and the leadership of the Arab coalition ... southern lands have been liberated by the blood of her sons and have loosed the bonds of unity which brought only terrorism, cronyism, and the looting of the people's wealth.

Dylan Hayden

Everybody kind of slowly walked out. As we were exiting the building, I noticed the counter-terrorism unit going into the building. The idea that they said that it was a technical error, when I was maybe 15 feet away from a potential dangerous substance, that kind of irks me a little bit. But at no point did I feel an actual threat.

Sophie Claudet - Euronews

Donald Trump says that NATO is obsolete, that it is not equipped to fight terrorism. Any thoughts on that?

Hillary Clinton

We've got to do everything that we can to vacuum up intelligence from Europe, from the Middle East. That means we have to work more closely with our allies and that is something that Donald has been very dismissive of. We're working with NATO, the longest military alliance in the history of the world to really turn our attention to terrorism.

Vladimir Putin

A united front to defeat terrorism has in fact not been created. In Washington there were forces that did their best to ensure our agreements did not take off.

Mark R. Cheadle - US Army

There are US service members working with the Tunisian security forces for counter terrorism and they are sharing intelligence from various sources, to include unarmed aerial platforms.

George Stratts - American International Group

This coverage provides our clients with market leading capacity that will respond to terrorist attacks worldwide. Demand from our clients for better protection against this risk has been strong. With our reinsurance partners and the investments we have made in analytics and risk engineering, we are confident in our ability to meet this demand and help our clients better prepare for, mitigate, and manage a terrorism event.

Haider al-Abadi

The fighting forces are currently pushing forward toward the town more quickly than we thought and more quickly, certainly, than we had established in our planned campaign. Our road forward is a long one, and we need to continue to work to destroy terrorism and out and end to this kind of destruction.

Narendra Modi

In our own region, terrorism poses a grave threat to peace, security and development. Tragically, the mother-ship of terrorism is a country in India's neighbourhood. Terror modules around the world are linked to this mother-ship.

Narendra Modi

Tragically the mothership of terrorism is a country in India's neighbourhood. Terror modules around the world are linked to this mothership. This country shelters not just terrorists. It nurtures a mindset. A mindset that loudly proclaims that terrorism is justified for political gains.

Donald J. Trump

We will defeat radical Islamic terrorism when I'm president. We will stand shoulder to shoulder with India in sharing intelligence and keeping our people safe mutually. The US and India will be best friends.

Nicolas Sarkozy

I believe France has many other important issues to deal with such as security, terrorism and unemployment, rather than recreate conditions for another hysterical debate.

Narendra Modi

We deeply appreciate Russia's understanding and support of our actions to fight cross-border terrorism that threatens our entire region. President Putin and I noted the similarity of our views on the situation in Afghanistan and turmoil in West Asia. We both affirm the need for zero tolerance in dealing with terrorists and their supporters.

Zhao Gancheng

If Pakistan's security situation does not improve, it will obstruct some of these projects - especially infrastructure ones. In this sense, cooperation on counter-terrorism is very close.

Mallam Garba Shehu

The president welcomes the release of the girls but cautioned Nigerians to be mindful of the fact that more than 30,000 fellow citizens were killed via terrorism.

Anatoly Antonov

The sooner Washington understands that without Russia it is impossible to defeat international terrorism, the sooner the international community will win. We are ready for this work with American colleagues and other Western countries.

Hillary Clinton

We need American Muslims to be part of our eyes and ears on our front lines. I've worked with a lot of different Muslim groups around America. I've met with a lot of them, and I've heard how important it is for them to feel that they are wanted and included and part of our country, part of our homeland security, and that's what I want to see.

Hillary Clinton

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

Donald J. Trump

When they see hatred going on, they have to report it. As an example, in San Bernardino, many people saw the bombs all over the apartment of the two people that killed 14 and wounded many, many people. Horribly wounded. They'll never be the same. Muslims have to report the problems when they see them.

Ned Price

We remain steadfast in our support for our NATO ally, Turkey, and reaffirm our commitment to continue working together to defeat all forms of terrorism.

Matthew Rycroft

This is not about stamping terrorism, this is about killing civilians. We are all in favor of fighting terrorism in Syria but the biggest single killer of innocent civilians in Syria is the Syrian regime. The second-biggest killer of innocent civilians in Syria is Russia, and it's only the third-biggest killer of innocent civilians in Syria that is al-Qaida, [Fatah al-Sham] and all the other terrorists.

Ram Madhav

For Pakistan, terrorism has come as a cheaper option all these years. Time to make it costly for it.

Jens Spahn

What we really do need now is that we can regain trust by showing that we can solve problems at a European level. The problems of securing our EU border when it comes to migration and refugees, that we work together on fighting terrorism or that we have a common neighbourhood policy towards northern Africa and the Middle East.

Garland Major

There are no racial undertones there. There's no terrorism involved. We're confident we have the sole shooter and no one else is involved.

Barack Obama

The United States relies on principles of immunity to prevent foreign litigants and foreign courts from second-guessing our counter-terrorism operations and other actions that we take every day.

Michael Steinbach - FBI

There is no expectation that we will stop every homicide here in Boston or Chicago. For some reason, with terrorism, there is an expectation, a bar that is set at zero and every single attack that goes through is considered a failure.

John Kerry

The announcement is an idea. The implementation are facts, so let's see how it proceeds, but we clearly are prepared to review and make judgments about that as the facts come in.

Nicholas J. Rasmussen

We don't think battlefield or territorial losses alone will be sufficient to completely degrade the group's terrorism capabilities.

Martin Kobler

This is of course Europeans, but this is also Egypt, Algeria, in particular the south. There is a link between the terrorism in Libya and with Boko Haram in the south.

Michael Fallon

We agree Europe needs to step up to the challenges of terrorism and of migration. But we are going to continue to oppose any idea of an EU army or an EU army headquarters which would simply undermine NATO. NATO must remain a cornerstone of our defense and the defense of Europe.

György Bakond

The Hungarian parliament has increased the number of police officers, set up a counter-terrorism information and analysis centre, the Hungarian army can also be deployed to fight against terrorists. So we have done everything we can to make Hungary a safe country.

Guy Parmelin

The new law gives Switzerland modern tools to respond to current threats. For example dealing with the fight against terrorism, against espionage, attacks on sensitive infrastructure or to fight against trafficking with chemical or biological weapons.

Urmas Paet - European Parliament

NATO wants adequate support and Britain sees some aspects of the EU's ambitions that are useful, say on terrorism and cyber security. We just need to avoid duplication.

John Kerry

I think we'll know very quickly. ... We're deeply invested in success. We don't want to leave people on a list, if they don't belong on a list.

Michael Knutson - FBI

We have no indication that we have a terrorism act. I can't discount that, but I can't conclude it either.

Mansour Hadi

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

Hassan Rouhani

When we ground flights, then we're taking a step against righteousness and for and in support of terrorism. So this course has no foundation, no logic.

Stephen Vladeck

There are lots of different ways for the government to throw the book at Rahami in civilian court. Our post 9/11-criminal counter-terrorism regime is not soft.

Jimmy Keyrouz

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

Vikas Swarup

Pak PM Sharif at #UNGA glorifies Hizbul terrorist Burhan Wani in U.N.'s highest forum. Shows continued Pak attachment to terrorism.

Josh Earnest

We're going to continue that engagement up to and through the president vetoing this legislation in the hopes that we can find an alternative that preserves the effective response that we've already designed to counter state sponsors of terrorism rather than leaving that designation subject to individual decisions by individual judges.

Bill de Blasio

Yesterday there was no hint of any connection to foreigner terrorism. No group had taken accountability. No group had put out a statement. It was very early in the investigation. It still is early. But there may very well turn out to be a link to foreign terrorist organizations.

Donald J. Trump

There have been Islamic terrorist attacks in Minnesota and in New York City and in New Jersey. These attacks and many others were made possible because of our extremely open immigration system, which fails to properly vet and screen the individuals or families coming into our country. We have seen how failures to screen who is entering the United States puts all of our citizens, everyone in this room, at danger.

Hillary Clinton

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

Mike Pence

Well that would be news to the men and women in Iraq who are taking it to the enemy everyday. We are not in a narrative fight -- we are at war with radical Islamic terrorism, and we need a president who knows it.

Hillary Clinton

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

Hillary Clinton

I'm the only candidate in this race who has been part of the hard decisions to take terrorists off the battlefield. I won't get into classified information, but I have sat at that table in the Situation Room, I have analyzed the threats, I have contributed to actions that have neutralized our enemies. I know how to do this and I understand how we don't want this to get even bigger than it already is.

Hillary Clinton

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

James O Neill

I am concerned. We did have a bomb that was detonated on 23rd Street and we have no one apprehended, so of course I'm concerned.

Andrew M. Cuomo

At this time there is no evidence of an international terrorism connection with this incident- but it is very, very early in the investigation. Whoever placed these bombs – we will find them and they will be brought to justice.

Francois Hollande

We must ensure that the action taken is sustained and I am of course talking about all the measures taken to foresee attacks, deter them and stop them. It's a constant battle that will require yet more resources than those I have already called for.

Hillary Clinton

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

Francois Hollande

We must ensure that the action taken is sustained, and here I am talking about all the measures taken to foresee attacks, deter them and stop them. It's a constant battle and will need still more resources than those I have called for.

Francois Hollande

We must ensure that the action taken is sustained and here I am talking about all the measures taken to foresee attacks, deter them and stop them. It's a constant battle and will need still more resources than those I have called for.

Andrew M. Cuomo

Yesterday there was no hint of any connection foreign terrorism.... But there may very well turn out to be a link to foreign terrorist organizations, and that we'll find out today or in the coming days.

Richard T. Thornton - FBI

We're currently investigating this as a potential act of terrorism, and I do say 'potential'. We don't know whether the subject was in contact with, had connections with or was inspired by a foreign terrorist organization.

Andrew M. Cuomo

A bomb exploding in New York is obviously an act of terrorism but it is not linked to international terrorism. We have no reason to believe at this time there is any further immediate threat.

Andrew M. Cuomo

A bomb exploding in New York is obviously an act of terrorism, but it's not linked to international terrorism. We know there's been no international terrorism organisation that has taken credit. We will find who planted these explosives and they will be punished. We will not allow these type of people and these type of threats to disurpt our life in New York.

Mark Rutte

All these countries have an interest in fighting terrorism, in a more secure Europe, in preventing uncontrolled migration, all have an interest in economic co-operation to create more jobs.

Angela Merkel

You can't solve all Europe's problems in one summit. What we have to do is show in our deeds we can do things better in the realms of security and fighting terrorism, and in the field of defence.

Angela Merkel

Terrorism is not a new problem that just arrived with the refugees. But because not each individual refugee arrives here with good intentions we will continue to strengthen security at home. People here are entitled to expect that we do all that is humanly possible to protect their security.

Abdullatif al-Zayani

Such laws will negatively affect the international efforts and international cooperation to combat terrorism.

Bob Goodlatte

We can no longer allow those who injure and kill Americans to hide behind legal loopholes, denying justice to the victims of terrorism.

Reince Priebus - Republican National Committee

Hillary Clinton is the wrong choice to lead America as commander-in-chief, repeatedly showing poor judgment and failed leadership on critical issues like foreign affairs and the growth of radical Islamic terrorism, and an utter tone deafness on the catastrophe at the VA.

Bounnhang Vorachith - Association of Southeast Asian Nations

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

Marine Le Pen

The best weapon against terrorism is the ballot.

Vladimir Putin

You and me have several time expressed our position on the fight against terrorism. I am sure that you have already succeeded in fully normalizing the situation.

Renee Triplett - Secret Service

The academy is very physical and rigorous. There's a tremendous amount of running involved, a tremendous amount of physical altercations that you're going to have during exercises. [Trainees] should not be afraid of technology – as an agency we are trying to keep up with the trends of terrorism and the cyberworld. We need people who are comfortable navigating that language.

Nawaz Sharif

These cowardly attacks can not shatter our unflinching resolve in our war against terrorism. These receding elements are showing frustration by attacking our soft targets. They shall not get space to hide in Pakistan.

Nawaz Sharif

These cowardly attacks cannot shatter our unflinching resolve in our war against terrorism. These receding elements are showing frustration by attacking our soft targets. They shall not get space to hide in Pakistan.

C.J. Chivers - The New York Times

Today the Kalashnikov and AR-15 variants remain the most commonly seen weapons on modern battlefields; their use is central to almost every war. They are a staple of insurgency and terrorism and all but fundamental to the grim routine of mass shootings.

Brian Michael Jenkins - RAND Corporation

The ultimate protection against terrorism depends not on the thickness of concrete barriers or the severity of the penal code. It depends on the individual and collective courage of the entire population. We may have to live with terrorism, but we do not have to live in terror.

Brian Michael Jenkins - RAND Corporation

Perhaps the most striking development is that terrorism has become bloodier, in terms of what acts are committed and how many victims are involved.

Bernard Norlain

There is, undoubtedly a risk but it will not lead to a veritable nuclear explosion. Rather it could lead to nuclear incidents, to accidents and therefore there is a great danger. That is why this conference was held in Astana, which has the specific aim not only of promoting global nuclear disarmament, but also as a first step, of taking measures that would help eradicate accidental risks and the risks associated with terrorism.

Francois Hollande

There won't be any victorious struggle against terror, if the crises that are the causes of terrorism are not resolved. It is more than time to stop this massacre and France is calling for an immediate truce.

Idriss Deby

I urge all our partners, and in particular Japan, to contribute to the African Fund Against Terrorism that was set up and established by the Kigali summit.

Francois Hollande

To have security we need frontiers that are controlled so that is why we are working to reinforce coastguards and border guards. We want more coordination in the fight against terrorism.

Bernard Cazeneuve

The fight against terrorism is the first priority for Europeans. It's imperative that police have a single interface.

Francois Hollande

Europe should have a framework of protection. For security we need to have borders that can be guarded. We also want there to be more coordination in the fight against terrorism.

Angela Merkel

The phenomenon of Islamist terrorism, of IS, is not a phenomenon that came to us with the refugees – rather, we have it, and had it, here.

Dean Haydon

Over and over again we have seen people on trial who have attended lectures or speeches given by these men. This has been a significant prosecution in our fight against terrorism.

Donald J. Trump

We will defeat radical Islamic terrorism just as we have defeated every threat we've faced at every age and before. He would "work closely with NATO" to defeat the Islamic State group.

Dean Haydon

These men have stayed just within the law for many years, but there is no one within the counter-terrorism world that has any doubts of the influence that they have had, the hate they have spread and the people that they have encouraged to join terrorist organisations.

Donald J. Trump

Beyond terrorism, as we have seen in France, foreign populations have brought their anti-Semitic attitudes with them. In short, Hillary Clinton wants to be America's Angela Merkel. And you know what a disaster this massive immigration has been to Germany and the people of Germany. Crime has risen to levels that no one thought they would ever, ever see. It is a catastrophe. We have enough problems in our country. We don't need more.

Dean Haydon

These men have stayed just within the law for many years, but there is no one within the counter terrorism world that has any doubts of the influence that they have had, the hate they have spread and the people that they have encouraged to join terrorist organisations. Over and over again we have seen people on trial for the most serious offences who have attended lectures or speeches given by these men.

Narendra Modi

What kind of life is this, inspired by terrorism? What kind of government set-up is it that is inspired by terrorism? The world will know about it and that's sufficient for me.

Rajiv Biswas - IHS Economics & Country Risk

Following the Erawan shrine bombing, Thai authorities required SIM card registration with location tracking capability, to combat terrorism and other crimes, such as organized crime and drug dealing.

Jake Sullivan

This is another example of Donald Trump trash-talking the United States. What's remarkable about Trump's comments is that once again, he's echoing the talking points of Putin and our adversaries to attack American leaders and American interests, while failing to offer any serious plans to confront terrorism or make this country more secure.

Bernard Cazeneuve

Many messages relating to the execution of terror attacks are sent using encryption; it is a central issue in the fight against terrorism. France will make proposals. I have sent a number of them to my Germany colleague.

Elizabeth Trudeau

Today, terrorists targeted a hospital, as well as the judiciary and the media, two of the most important pillars of every democracy. These brutal and senseless attacks only deepen our shared resolve to defeat terrorism around the world.

Ned Price

The president has emphasized that the U.S. Government should be as transparent as possible with the American people about our counter-terrorism operations, the manner in which they are conducted, and their results. Our counter-terrorism actions are effective and legal, and their legitimacy is best demonstrated by making public more information about these actions as well as setting clear standards for other nations to follow.

Reince Priebus - Republican National Committee

The Obama-Clinton foreign policy not only means cutting a dangerous nuclear deal with the world's number one state sponsor of terrorism, it also means paying them a secret ransom with cargo planes full of cash.

Mark Rowley

"Early indications suggest that mental health is a significant factor in this case and that is one major line of inquiry". "But of course at this stage we should keep an open mind regarding motive and consequently terrorism as a motivation remains but one line of inquiry for us to explore".

Mark Rowley

But of course at this stage we should keep an open mind regarding motive and, consequently, terrorism as a motivation remains but one line of inquiry for us to explore. Armed officers arrived at the scene within five minutes, they discharged the Taser whilst confronting and arresting the suspect.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

The West is supporting terrorism and taking sides with coups. Forces unhappy with Turkey's rise as a regional power were behind the coup attempt. They have actors inside [Turkey], but the scenario of this coup was written abroad.

Gary Chaison

People feel more insecure about trade than terrorism. Everyone knows someone who has lost their job.

Donald J. Trump

This story is not about Mr. Khan, who is all over the place doing interviews, but rather RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM and the U.S. Get smart! Mr. Khan, who does not know me, viciously attacked me from the stage of the DNC and is now all over T.V. doing the same – Nice!

Blanka Kolenikova - IHS

People connect terrorist attacks to the refugee influx, but it is wrong to do so. Take Greece for example, which has one of the highest numbers of refugees but is at a low risk of international terrorism.

Harrison Cheng - Control Risks

While counter-terrorism laws and capabilities remain fairly robust, authorities are also concerned about the possibility of lone-wolf attacks,which are far harder to foil. This plausibly has also given impetus for stronger enforcement powers to mitigate the windows of opportunity for such attacks to occur.

Mark Gardner

Churches take great pride in being open. But there comes a time when the reality of crime and the reality of terrorism may mean that some of that balance needs to be readjusted.

Donald J. Trump

We must immediately suspend immigration from any nation that has been compromised by terrorism until such time as proven vetting mechanisms have been put in place.

Hasni Abidi

We must not fall into the trap of a 'religious war' – this is not a war between religions. ISIL does not represent religion, terrorism has no religion. But there is a real risk of social friction, tensions within the population, because attacking a church or a priest equates to attacking a fundamental element of identity. And society must really start reflecting on ways to rein in this terror, on the right approach to resist the panic and chaos that ISIL wants to implant into our societies.

Horst Seehofer

Each act of terrorism is one too many. Islamist terrorism has arrived in Germany and people are, justifiably, expecting us to stand up to this courageously.

Thomas De Maiziere

Concerning the motive of this deed, there are no conclusive findings yet.However, we do know that at his apartment, material was seized indicating that he was interested in rampages. So far, there are no clues linking this crime with international terrorism.

Donald J. Trump

In this race for the White House, I am the law and order candidate. Our convention occurs at a moment of crisis for our nation. The attacks on our police, and the terrorism in our cities, threaten our very way of life. Any politician who does not grasp this danger is not fit to lead our country.

Donald J. Trump

Iraq is in chaos, Iran is on the path to nuclear weapons, Syria is engulfed in a civil war, and a refugee crisis now threatens the West. After 15 years of wars in the Middle East, after trillions of dollars spent and thousands of lives lost, the situation is worse than it has ever been before. This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton: death, destruction, terrorism and weakness.

Donald J. Trump

The most important difference between our plan and that of our opponents, is that our plan will put America First. I have a message for all of you: the crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon come to an end. The attacks on our police, and the terrorism in our cities, threaten our very way of life. Any politician who does not grasp this danger is not fit to lead our country.

Donald J. Trump

Our Convention occurs at a moment of crisis for our nation. The attacks on our police, and the terrorism in our cities, threaten our very way of life. Any politician who does not grasp this danger is not fit to lead our country. I have a message for all of you: the crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon – and I mean very soon – come to an end. Beginning on Jan. 20th, 2017, safety will be restored.

Lance Fritz - Union Pacific

There's plenty for consumers to be concerned about, whether it's the global economy, terrorism, some of the acts of violence that they see randomly occurring. Even the Great Recession is not too distant in a lot of people's memories. So I think all of that could be creating cautious behavior.

Attila Juhász

While the first campaign wanted to affect the minds of people with messages like the immigrants will take the jobs of Hungarians, the new campaign is more emotive, emphasising a visceral fear, of crime and the fear of terrorism, and this will make xenophobia rise more.

Manuel Valls

Was everything done? Can we respond, looking at those victims – those men, those women, who have lost their children? But we must raise the debate… because populism is lurking. Those who promise that we can fix everything by waving a magic wand are lying to the French people. Fighting terrorism is a long-term battle.

Donald J. Trump

To defeat Islamic extremist terrorism we must put them on defense. If they are at war against us – which they have declared – we must commit ourselves to unconditional victory against them.

Marc Pierini

Several voices have expressed concern that the March 2016 EU-Turkey deal on refugees might be in jeopardy in the wake of the coup attempt, especially as a mellowing of the country's anti-terrorism law (something the EU wants) is now out of the question in the post-coup context. What is more likely is that the EU and Turkey, which both have more vital concerns than visa liberalisation, will continue to implement core elements of the deal.

Brian Klaas

The cracks between Turkey and the west is not good for the fight against terrorism because you need a close relation as possible from the strategic allies, rather than bickering. So there's no real good that's going to come out of this.

Brian Klaas

You very often have to make very unsavoury alliances [in geopolitics], whether that's a good thing or not is extremely debatable. But Turkey is in a geostrategically-important location at a time when that location is exceptionally important for international security between terrorism, the collapse of Syria and the refugee crisis.

Brian Klaas

Leaders try to decapitate their military and weaken it to make sure no individual general or force within the armed forces has an independent power base and that's not good for NATO's goals because it ultimately undermines their strategic ability to project power in Syr
