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

All quotes about Terrorism

Donald J. Trump

She's the strongest on borders, and she's the strongest on what's been going on in France. Whoever is the toughest on radical Islamic terrorism, and whoever is the toughest at the borders, will do well in the election. Everybody is making predictions on who is going to win. I'm no different than you.feedback

Natalie Nougayrède

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

Philip Hammond

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

Marine Le Pen

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

Rex W. Tillerson

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

Meredith Sumpter

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

Randa Loutfi

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

Randa Loutfi

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

Mais Balkhi

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

Jayne Huckerby

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

Rob Rowe

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

Lukas Rüttinger

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

James Matthis

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

Sherri Goodman

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

Tanya Gersh

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

Marine Le Pen

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

Jon Alterman

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

Peter Baker - The New York Times

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

Linda Glover

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

Donald J. Trump

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

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

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

Alexander Vershbow - NATO

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

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

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

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

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

Donald J. Trump

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

John Beattie

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

John Beattie

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

Ma Haiyun

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

Carsten Maple

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

Sarah Margon - Human Rights Watch

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

Emmanuel Macron

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

Hamidreza Taraghi

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

Stefan Lofven

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

Stefan Lofven

We will never surrender to terrorism. We will get through this together.feedback

Abdel Fattah el-Sisi

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

Jean-Marc Ayrault

The fight against terrorism cannot be effective if we do not link it to resolving the Syrian situation.feedback

Sergey Lavrov

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

Maria del Mar Blanco

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

Stefan Lofven

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

Stefan Lofven

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

Vladimir Safronkov - UN

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

Vladimir Putin

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

Vladimir Safronkov - UN

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

Talal al-Barazi

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

Vladimir Chizhov

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

Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero

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

Paolo Gentiloni

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

Donald J. Trump

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

Talal Barazi

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

Bob Goodlatte
John Conyers

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

Dmitry Peskov

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

Donald J. Trump

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

Walid Al-Moualem

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

Bashar al-Assad

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

Omara Khan Masoudi

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

Vladimir Putin

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

António Guterres - United Nations

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

Ingo Mannteufel

(The West) has a moral and political duty to show solidarity with the victims of terrorism in Russia. That the Brandenburg Gate was not illuminated in the Russian colours was therefore wrong, yes, it is even a scandal.feedback

Alfred Kokh

Someone really wants to get elected, just like in 1999.feedback

Alfred Kokh

Someone really wanted to get elected then, too.feedback

Donald J. Trump

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

Nikki Haley

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

Abdel Fattah el-Sisi

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

Donald J. Trump

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

Vladimir Putin

All possible causes of the blast in the St Petersburg metro are being considered, including terrorism.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The first task for our new administration will be to liberate our citizens from the crime and terrorism and lawlessness that threatens their communities.feedback

Diana Cesar - HSBC

Criminals involved in drug trafficking and terrorism use the banking system to transfer about US$800 million to US$2 trillion every year globally. We need to have up-to-date client information to crack down on these money-laundering activities. HSBC has a history of 150 years and many clients had their accounts opened some decades ago when the information requirements were much lower than today's standard.feedback

Vladimir Putin

I have already spoken to the heads of special services, the director of the Federal Security Service. The law enforcement and security agencies are working and doing all they can to ascertain what has happened and to make a complete assessment of the incident. The investigation is underway. Officials are considering all possible causes for the blasts in the city's metro system, including terrorism.feedback

Cressida Dick

Terrorism is just one of the challenges we face. Alongside the mayor and every single one of our officers and staff, I will work tirelessly to keep our city safe.feedback

Narendra Modi

While on the one hand youth in Kashmir were busy pelting stones, on the other some youth were breaking stones to carve out this tunnel. We have a plan to make nine such tunnels in the state.feedback

Nabil Fahmy

If the U.S. aims to counter terrorism, it is natural they cooperate with us.feedback

Mohamed el-Menshawy

The weakness of the Egyptian economy and the continuing predicament over terrorism in Sinai don't leave in Egypt's hands many important cards.feedback

Daniel Benaim

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

Robert Springborg

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

Bahram Ghassemi

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

Jean-Marc Ayrault

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

Dorit Geva

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

Dorit Geva

It's true economic issues matter a lot. But with the issues of security, including international security and the threat of terrorism, there is a very profound sense of discomfort about France's internal security, that has to do with the sense of the decline of public order and declining police power. And that's very much on people's minds too.feedback

Nawaz Sharif

It is our responsibility to continue the war against terrorists. The network of terrorists has already been broken and it is our national duty to continue this war until the complete annihilation of the scourge of terrorism from our soil.feedback

Donald Tusk - European Council

Especially after the terrorist attack in London - the latest events - it must be clear that terrorism is our common problem and security is our common problem.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

We want to discuss how we can build on NATO's already important involvement in the fight to defeat ISIS and other counter-terrorism actions that NATO can provide, and ultimately bring stability to the Middle East.feedback

Kasim Reed

We've spoken to the special agent in charge of FBI, there is no evidence this is related to terrorism. I think it's as serious a transportation crisis as we could have.feedback

Michael Fallon

Together, we will also agree further steps to modernise Nato and ensure greater burden sharing. That means more European members committing to annual increases in their defence spending in order to counter an aggressive Russia and tackle terrorism and cyber threats.feedback

Vladimir Putin

Only by pooling efforts can we efficiently combat terrorism. I hope that we will eventually come to constructive cooperation. There are many issues which long have come to a head in the economic and security fields and regarding regional conflicts. We are ready for that discussion. It's necessary for the other side to also show goodwill and readiness for constructive work.feedback

Vladimir Putin

I don't think it's in the interests of the majority of the American people to bring the U.S.-Russian relations to absurdity for the sake of domestic politics. Do we want to completely cut diplomatic relations? Do we want to bring the situation to what it was in the 1960s during the Cuban (missile) crisis? Where do people behaving in such an irresponsible way want to take us all, including the American people. We aren't obstructing it, just opposite, we are helping it. Only by pooling efforts can we efficiently combat terrorism. I hope that we will eventually come to constructive cooperation.feedback

John Follain

I think he represents a past era in international terrorism when the principal cause, the so called popular cause, was Palestine, a free Palestine, and of course Marxism. I think terrorism has evolved so much that today he represents a solitary voice in the desert, a pretty old fashioned voice.feedback

Olga Perez Stable Cox

It doesn't feel good at all to be looking over my shoulder and wondering when an unfamiliar car pulls up across the street whether they're going to take a picture of me or something worse – but that's my life now. I feel like I've been attacked by a mob of people all across the country. If they're telling me over and over again that they want to shoot me in the face, how am I supposed to know if they're going to do it or not?feedback

Rob Schneiderman

The faculty and staff and management have always known she was a dynamic and inspirational professor. In the current climate of bullying and intolerance and scapegoating, the OCC community felt compelled to honor her. We've known her for 40 years. The narrative that she's not inclusive because of a 1-minute-and-50-second video clip is a false narrative, and we know that, and we want the world to know that. Students love her class and the discussions that take place there and the information actually helps them. These are really important discussions.feedback

Rob Schneiderman

I think the OCC faculty thought they couldn't idly stand by while these militant students cyberbullied one of our senior faculty members.feedback

Olga Perez Stable Cox

First of all, we are the majority; more of us voted to not have that kind of leadership, and we didn't win because of the way our electoral college is set up, but we are the majority, and that's helping me to feel better. I'm relieved that we live in California. It is one of the best states, and I love that, and I love living here, but I'm especially proud of our legislature, which did put out a message.feedback

Olga Perez Stable Cox

I read a message from the school president and put together a handout for coping with pain. As a therapist, these are things I share with people who are depressed. I basically said, Deal with your feelings and do something positive,' and I was helping them cope with their fears – that was the intent.feedback

Leo Rayman

Recent events, from rising instances of hate crime and terror attacks in London to the triggering of Article 50, have sent shivers through our society and businesses, but it should also inspire a collective and determined attitude that our country and our companies will not change for the worse. Making a statement against intolerance and prejudice and improving your own working conditions is not quite the same as solving global terrorism … I wouldn't want to make too grandiose a claim about what we can do.feedback

Mohammad Javad Zarif

Russia doesn't have a military base [in Iran], we have good cooperation, and on a case by case basis, when it is necessary for Russians fighting terrorism to use Iranian facilities, we will make a decision.feedback

Cy Vance

James Jackson prowled the streets of New York for three days in search of a black person to assassinate in order to launch a campaign of terrorism against our Manhattan community and the values we celebrate. Last week, with total presence of mind, he acted on his plan, randomly selecting a beloved New Yorker solely on the basis of his skin colour, and stabbing him repeatedly and publicly on a Midtown street corner. James Jackson wanted to kill black men, planned to kill black men, and then did kill a black man.feedback

Enzo Traverso

Fascist ideas are also less widespread in America today than they were 70 or 100 years ago, during McCarthyism or the Red Scare. The Bolshevik threat no longer exists, and the specter of terrorism isn't sufficiently frightening for Americans to readily give up their freedoms in exchange for promises of security.feedback

Cy Vance

We must never take for granted New York's remarkable diversity. We must celebrate it, protect it, and refuse to let violence and hate undermine the progress we have made as a city, a state, and a nation.feedback

Amber Rudd

I would ask Tim Cook to think again about other ways of helping us work out how we can get into the situations like WhatsApp on the Apple phone.feedback

David Shariatmadari

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

Michel Barnier

The attacks in London last week tragically remind us of our common interest in the fight against terrorism.feedback

Tobias Ellwood

I am heartbroken that I could not do more for PC Keith Palmer who gave his life in holding the line against terrorism and defending democracy. I played only a small part that day, doing what I was taught to do, and am honoured to have been invited to join the Privy Council afterwards. It is right that we concentrate our thoughts on the victims as we stand side by side to protect all that we hold dear, including our precious values and way of life which will always prevail.feedback

Mohammed Momani

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

Jean-Marie Le Pen

To combat terrorism, we must control our borders and deport all radicalised foreigners!feedback

Nick Varney - Merlin Entertainments

It was a very shattering event in a company that had come from small beginnings to become a confident, proud business. We prided ourselves on fun, safe, memorable experiences.feedback

Nick Varney - Merlin Entertainments

The model whereby they keep a specialist equity investment in a company that is…well they've seen the benefits from it. They've had record royalties ever since, and we've launched Legoland discovery centres [smaller, indoor versions of the parks] which we've opened 17 of around the world. It rocks the very core of your existence. I don't think we'll ever forget it within Merlin, and nor should we.feedback

Nick Varney - Merlin Entertainments

It definitely does have an effect. As I look at the bookings for this year, we're in the second year of a massive German staycation boom. All our parks are full – in Denmark, Germany and Italy – because the Germans decided to stay home because they weren't going to Tunisia, Egypt or any of their traditional locations. If you get a big hit in a market like London, then it's difficult. I don't think they want to. I think what they would say is that the current arrangement is one that they like as they found to their own cost that they're not theme park operators.feedback

Nick Varney - Merlin Entertainments

For Lego, it's the second- biggest toy market in the world after the US. From Kirkbi's perspective, a Legoland is the single-biggest thing that will grow brand awareness. It's what happened in Malaysia after we opened there.feedback

Nasr al-Hariri

This is the fault of warplanes. These are the ones who claim to fight terrorism who are responsible for this horrible massacre in Hamouna.feedback

Mark Rowley

I can also now confirm that there are three members of the public who have lost their lives in the attack. Specially-trained family liaison officers have been deployed to support them. And, as I confirmed earlier, the suspected attacker was shot dead by an armed officer. Therefore, meaning that now in total we have five people who died today. Our working assumption is that he was inspired by international terrorism.feedback

Theresa May

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

Tobias Ellwood

I am heartbroken that I could not do more for Pc Keith Palmer who gave his life in holding the line against terrorism and defending democracy. I shall be writing to the family of Pc Palmer to offer my sincere condolences. It is right that despite the terrible events on Wednesday, Parliamentary business continued the next day as usual, the democratic machine was not interrupted and our way of life did not stop. I'm deeply humbled and overwhelmed by the messages of support, especially from the policing fraternity, which I now realise is as close knit as the military's in supporting its own.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Marine Le Pen

As you know, [killings] took place in Great Britain a few days ago.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Mark Rowley

It is still our belief – which continues to be borne out by our investigation – that this attacker acted alone yesterday and was inspired by international terrorism. To be explicit, at this stage, we have no specific information about further threats to the public. Spoke to U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May today to offer condolences on the terrorist attack in London. She is strong and doing very well.feedback

Mark Rowley

The fourth man of course was the terrorist who was shot dead by armed police at the scene. Hundreds of detectives have been working through the night and during that time I can confirm we have searched six addresses and made seven arrests. The inquiries in Birmingham, London and other parts of the country continue. 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. To be explicit at this stage, we have no specific information about further threats to the public.feedback

Sadiq Khan

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.feedback

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.

Mark Rowley

It is still our belief - which continues to be born out by our investigation - that this attacker acted alone yesterday and was inspired by international terrorism. To be explicit - at this stage, we have no specific information about further threats to the public.

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Mark Rowley

To be explicit – at this stage, we have no specific information about further threats to the public. It is still our belief - which continues to be born out by our investigation - that this attacker acted alone yesterday and was inspired by international terrorism. As people are out and about on the streets of the capital this morning they will see more police officers on duty – armed and unarmed – and a mix of British Transport Police and the City of London. We have cancelled some leave and increased some duty hours and are working to make sure that we can out in force to reassure the public.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Mark Rowley

It is still our belief - which continues to be born out by our investigation - that this attacker acted alone yesterday and was inspired by international terrorism. Clearly our investigation is ongoing - developing all the time - and is focused on his motivation, his preparation and associates. We must not allow terrorists to create discord, distrust and fear. The police stand with all communities - later today a meeting of faith leaders will be held here at New Scotland Yard. Whilst our work to investigate and understand what happened yesterday continues with vigour - we must also reflect.feedback

I will not comment on this stage of the identity of the attacker, but our working assumption is he was inspired by international terrorism. Greater clarity is now developing regarding the casualty figures as we have now collated information from the public and five hospitals.feedback

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?feedback

Theresa May

Journalists play a very similar role to doctors in our society in that we trust them. And without trust they cannot operate.

The concern is it's becoming the tool of first resort.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Matt Jacobs

Karen Attiah

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

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.’ ”.feedback

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.

There are no reentry programs within the U.S. prison system other than the typical parole officer, who doesn't do CVE stuff.feedback

Jeff Sessions

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.feedback

Jeff Sessions

Christopher S. Murphy

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

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.

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.feedback

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.

In its oral argument before the 9th Circuit, the government was unable to provide any evidence to the 9th Circuit that acts of terrorism had been committed by the nationals of seven countries initially designated. That was an embarrassment, but now weeks later, in these preliminary fact sheets, they still have not explained why people from these countries pose risk to America's national security.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Mark Rowley

Some of them have been more sophisticated planning looking to attack public spaces, or police offices or the military, not that dissimilar to some of the attacks we have seen in Belgium and France and elsewhere. There is a whole range from the simple to the complicated. Sometimes reporting oversimplifies things and says terrorism is about IS [Islamic State] or Daesh and it's about Syria. Actually there are many Isis offshoots in other parts of world, al-Qaida is still very, very significant.feedback

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

Hannah Stuart

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