All quotes about Terrorism

Bob Corker

I could not have been more pleased with the President's recent trip to Saudi Arabia. Unfortunately, the GCC did not take advantage of the summit and instead chose to devolve into conflict. All countries in the region need to do more to combat terrorism, but recent disputes among the GCC countries only serve to hurt efforts to fight ISIS and counter Iran. Before we provide any further clearances during the informal review period on sales of lethal military equipment to the GCC states, we need a better understanding of the path to resolve the current dispute and reunify the GCC.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

Qatar has begun its careful review and consideration of a series of requests presented by Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and UAE. While some of the elements will be very difficult for Qatar to meet, there are significant areas which provide a basis for on-going dialogue leading to resolution. We believe our allies and partners are stronger when they are working together towards one goal which we all agree is stopping terrorism and countering extremism. Each country involved has something to contribute to that effort. A lowering of rhetoric would also help ease the tension.feedback

Darren Best

We obviously needed to investigate properly given the nature of the incident and what we have seen elsewhere in the country. We needed to be careful that we ourselves didn't jump to conclusions and say things too early. I think it is absolutely and completely understandable that people jumped to the conclusions that they did given the incidents people have seen nationally.feedback

Bob Kipps

Between Europe getting its economic legs under it again, and that's where most of the terrorism has been lately ... there's a sense that global defence budgets are going to be increasing from now. It's less Trump rhetoric than the pace of events.feedback

Asif Anwar

The lady lost control of the car and hit some people. Two of them were kids. It was chaos, everyone was panicking. People just don't know what is going on these days. Terrorism is what everyone was thinking straight away.feedback

Youssef Chahed

We are persuaded there is a link between smuggling, terrorism financing, cross-border activities and also capital flight.feedback

Zaker Choudhry

This is the true face of Islam. We are sending a message to the whole world that we are united against terrorism, united against hate.feedback

Michael Fallon

There are some 10,000 servicemen and women who are working for us around the globe on operations or in our bases. They have been helping to deal with Daesh terrorism, they have been helping to rescue migrants in the Mediterranean, they have been on Nato deployments, they have been peacekeeping in South Sudan.feedback

Michael Fallon

The armed forces are always ready now to deploy in aid of the police, as back-up for the armed police and in aid of local authorities. The operation after Manchester has been well-rehearsed. They were ready to deploy. They have been helping to deal with Daesh terrorism, they have been helping to rescue migrants in the Mediterranean, they have been on Nato deployments, they have been peacekeeping in South Sudan.feedback

Michael Fallon

The armed forces are always ready now to deploy in aid of the police, as back-up for the armed police and in aid of local authorities. The operation after Manchester has been well-rehearsed. They were ready to deploy. We deployed nearly 1,000 armed troops within 12 hours on the streets, which freed up armed police to do more patrolling. They have been helping to deal with Daesh terrorism, they have been helping to rescue migrants in the Mediterranean, they have been on Nato deployments, they have been peacekeeping in South Sudan.feedback

Nawaz Sharif

No Muslim can ever imagine to commit such horrific act. Such acts of terrorism will be dealt with full power of the state.feedback

Niall Murphy

His evidence can be used as evidence against other suspects in the U.V.F., but also his R.U.C. Special Branch handlers. His admissions have led to a process of truth telling, which is important for these families. The wider perspective is the scale to which the state supervised and directed his terrorism.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

The recent terror attacks in London and Manchester –like violence anywhere – are absolutely heartbreaking. No one should have to live in fear of terrorism - and we all have a part to play in stopping violent extremism from spreading. The UK Online Civil Courage Initiative will support NGOs and community groups who work across the UK to challenge the extremist narratives that cause such harm. We know we have more to do - but through our platform, our partners and our community we will continue to learn to keep violence and extremism off Facebook.feedback

Steven H. Schulman

I find it offensive, because no reasonable person would sit down and say Radwan Ziadeh is a terrorist. There are real terrorists out there. We all know that. Somehow, we are unable to distinguish between people who actually engage in terrorist activity and who do not engage in terrorist activity.feedback

Radwan Ziadeh

Right now, I can't even plan for the future. What will happen? I have three American kids. I love, actually, the U.S. I visited all 50 states, even U.S. territories. I visited all the presidential libraries.feedback

Eric Schwartz

You had legislation that broadly expanded the definition of terrorist activity, captured people who could have been coerced into terrorist activity and created this Tier III catchall category.feedback

Robert Ford

The U.S. administration, myself included, regularly spoke with members of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood who were themselves members of Syrian opposition coalitions and delegations.feedback

Radwan Ziadeh

It gives you a sense how much the U.S. government abandoned the Syrians.feedback

David Thompson

The firearms commanders, casualty bureau, custody staff, body recovery teams and uniformed officers patrolling crowded spaces that are so central to preventing and responding to a terror attack are paid for by core police funding. Over two-thirds of the policing effort after the Westminster attack was not counter-terrorism funded. This figure will be much higher following the Manchester attack.feedback

Philippe Couillard

You cannot disconnect this type of event, terrorism, from Islam in general. I think President [Emmanuel] Macron yesterday was very eloquent about this when addressing the Muslim community in France. He told them it's also your responsibility to act on the theological front to explain to your people that this is not part of the religion, that it's contrary to the teachings of the religion.feedback

Philip Hammond

We don't agree on everything, but on the big issues about the Union, about the need to grow our economy and to spread the benefits of that growth across all corners of the United Kingdom, on the need to be strong on defence and counter-terrorism - on all of these areas we agree with the Democratic Unionist Party and I am confident that we will be able to come to an arrangement with them to support the Government in the key areas of its programme.feedback

Neil Basu

Following the attack, specialist counter terrorism officers have spoken to 28 witnesses who were at the scene. We are very grateful to everyone who has provided information so far – their accounts are assisting the investigation hugely – but we need more people to come forward and tell us what they saw and what they know about the driver of this van. If you think you may have spoken to the driver please get in touch.feedback

David P. Gelios - FBI

We're trying to develop more as to his timeline and where he went after he entered the United States in Lake Champlain, New York. We have no information to suggest a wider plot, but it's certainly very early in the investigation. At this time, we view him as a lone wolf. Suffice it to say, he has a hatred for the United States. Preliminary indications are that we had no visibility on this individual.feedback

David P. Gelios - FBI

When the subject went up to the officer and stabbed him, he continued to exclaim 'Allah' and made a statement, something to the effect of 'You have killed people in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan and we are all going to die.feedback

Jeff Sessions

I want to assure all our law enforcement across the nation, any attack on someone who serves and protects our citizens will be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I am proud of the swift response from the FBI and our federal prosecutors and their partnership with local police and the Canadian authorities. Our prayers are with the officer and his family for a full recovery. President Trump has prioritized the safety of all law enforcement officers, and this Department of Justice is committed to that goal.feedback

Heather Nauert

The more that time goes by, the more doubt is raised about the actions taken by Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Were the actions really about their concerns about Qatar's alleged support for terrorism, or were they about the long-simmering grievances between and among the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) countries?feedback

Helima Croft - BC Capital

We contend the region could witness more near-term volatility and heightened risk of military confrontation. The political risk premium may therefore be set to stage a comeback. This is a big generational shift in Saudi Arabia. I used to talk about 70 being young for a Crown Prince in Saudi Arabia. To have 31-year old Crown Prince is a decisive break with past practice. To move aside Mohammed bin Nayef, the counter terrorism czar, the figure of the establishment, this is ground breaking for Saudi Arabia. The question is can Mohammed bin Salman deliver on his big reform plans?feedback

Donald J. Trump

We're going to have a lot of great success over the coming years, and we want to get as many to fight terrorism as possible.feedback

Donald Tusk - European Council

It is fair to say that we will meet in a different political context from that of a few months ago, when the anti-EU forces were on the rise. The current developments on the continent seem to indicate that we are slowly turning the corner. In many of our countries, the political parties that have built their strength on anti-EU sentiments are beginning to diminish. We are witnessing the return of the EU rather as a solution, not a problem.feedback

Ralph Goodale

There is complete co-operation between the RCMP and other Canadian authorities and agencies with all of their counterparts in the United States and we will do everything we possibly can to assist in this matter.feedback

Alain Bauer

The question that was asked was not to know whether there would be bombings, but how to endure them, resist against them, stand up against them with the idea that at the end, they would win. We have gone from hyperterrorism or gigaterrorism to lumpenterrorism, low-intensity terrorism of proximity, with few victims but with a strong media amplification.feedback

Damian Green

There's still the possibility, there's every possibility of a DUP deal. The talks have been taking place in a constructive way. Clearly, two political parties, we have some differences. But we have a lot in common. We're both unionist parties at our heart. We're both obviously very concerned with combating terrorism, we both have similar views about delivering a good Brexit for this country and obviously, we're both very, very concerned with the Irish border issue. But all talks of this kind take a long time, and they're still continuing.feedback

Heather Nauert

The more the time goes by, the more doubt is raised about the actions taken by Saudi Arabia and the UAE. At this point, we are left with one simple question: Were the actions really about their concerns regarding Qatar's alleged support for terrorism or were they about the long-simmering grievances between and among the GCC countries? Now that it has been more than two weeks since the embargo was started, we are mystified that the Gulf states have not released to the public nor to the Qataris the details about the claims that they are making toward Qatar.feedback

Carolyn Everson - Global Marketing

Facebook is a safe place for brands, let me start there. The second thing I would say is we have zero tolerance, zero tolerance for hate speech and terrorism. There is no place for any of that on our platforms, and we have already made a commitment.feedback

Diane Abbott

We know that a large proportion of referrals to Prevent involve far-right or fascist terrorism, but it is far less clear whether this is reflected in the charging or conviction rates. Terrorism affects us all.feedback

Theresa May

It is a reminder that terrorism, extremism and hatred take many forms; and our determination to tackle them must be the same whoever is responsible. This was an attack that once again targeted the ordinary and the innocent going about their daily lives ? this time British Muslims as they left a Mosque having broken their fast and prayed together at this sacred time of year. Today we come together - as we have done before ? to condemn this act and to state once again that hatred and evil of this kind will never succeed.feedback

David Anderson

The threat from extreme Right-wing terrorism in the UK is currently fragmented but the massacre perpetrated by Anders Breivik in Norway is a warning against underestimating the threat. Both the Government and the courts treat the threat with the seriousness it deserves. Extreme Right-wing ideology can be just as murderous as its Islamist equivalent. A sophisticated network is not a prerequisite for mass slaughter.feedback

Theresa May

This morning we have seen a sickening attempt to destroy those freedoms, and to break those bonds of citizenship that define our United Kingdom. It is a reminder that terrorism, extremism and hatred take many forms, and our determination to tackle them must be the same whoever is responsible.feedback

Theresa May

It is a reminder that terrorism, extremism and hatred take many forms; and our determination to tackle them must be the same whoever is responsible. As I said here two weeks ago, there has been far too much tolerance of extremism in our country over many years – and that means extremism of any kind, including Islamophobia.feedback

Theresa May

Hatred and evil of this kind will never succeed. There has been far too much tolerance of extremism over many years. This was an attack on Muslims near their place of worship and like all terrorism, in whatever form, it shares the same fundamental goal. It seeks to drive us apart and to break the precious bonds of solidarity and citizenship that we share in this country. There has been far too much tolerance of extremism in our country over many years and that means extremism of any kind including Islamophobia.feedback

Theresa May

It was an attack that targeted the ordinary and the innocent. Today we come together as we have done before to condemn this act and state an act of hatred of this kind will never succeed in dividing us. Like all terrorism, in whatever form, it shares the same goal: to drive us apart. We will not let this happen.feedback

Sadiq Khan

While this appears to be an attack on a particular community … it is also an assault on all our shared values of tolerance, freedom and respect. Terrorism is terrorism, whether it is Islamist-inspired or inspired by others.feedback

Sadiq Khan

We will not allow these terrorists to succeed ... We're going to carry on being a united city. Unfortunately there has been a spike in hate crime after the other attacks.feedback

Jamal Ahmed

I think [the attack] happened here because people think this is an area riddled with extremism and terrorists, which is so far from the truth. If you go around the corner to Finsbury Park Mosque there are flowers laid outside. The community is pulling together. This is not the time for revenge or retaliation. Everyone thinks Muslims are bloodthirsty people, but it's not true. There is a certain prejudice and hypocrisy against ethnic minorities in Britain in general. Not just Muslims but all ethnic minorities.feedback

Ahmed Shakair

I came out ... and started walking away when I heard screaming. I saw a white van hurtling along at 40-50 miles an hour then it swerved onto the [sidewalk] ... and smashed into a group. Remember there were 400-500 people on the street coming out at the end of prayers. So there were lots of people around.feedback

Kent Walker - Google

Terrorism is an attack on open societies, and addressing the threat posed by violence and hate is a critical challenge for us all. Google and YouTube are committed to being part of the solution. We are working with government, law enforcement and civil society groups to tackle the problem of violent extremism online. There should be no place for terrorist content on our services. While we and others have worked for years to identify and remove content that violates our policies, the uncomfortable truth is that we, as an industry, must acknowledge that more needs to be done. Now.feedback

Louise Richardson

Terrorism simply means deliberately and violently targeting civilians for political purposes.feedback

Micah Zenko - Council on Foreign Relations

We treat 'terrorism' in the common vernacular differently because it is ascribed to foreigners who are unlike us, whereas similarly savage behavior conducted by fellow Americans is a reflection of us.feedback

Amber Rudd

The Finsbury Park attack was terrorism. We all have a part to play in standing in solidarity with the Muslim community. Every community in the UK has been stunned and saddened by the unimaginable horrors we have faced in recent weeks. Tragically, the holiest month in the Muslim calendar has this year been shattered by a series of devastating incidents. British Muslims universally condemned the London Bridge attackers for their cowardly actions during Ramadan.feedback

Sajid Javid

I want people to feel as safe as possible. We've got to listen to local leaders about what more it is that we can do.feedback

Abdul Abdullah

The last thing we need in this multicultural, mixed area is something coming between people and driving a wedge.feedback

Ahmed Kaballo

I am angry at the police response. It would have been different had the terrorist looked Muslim.feedback

Neil Basu

No matter what the motivation for this attack proves to be, we are keeping an open mind. This is being treated as a terrorist attack and the counter-terrorism command is investigating. This was an attack on London and all Londoners and we should all stand together against extremists, whatever their cause.feedback

Monika Bickert - Facebook

We're talking about this is because we are seeing this technology really start to become an important part of how we try to find this content.feedback

Mohammed Shafiq

If this attack is confirmed as a deliberate terrorist attack then this should be classed as an act of terrorism. The British Muslim community requires all decent people to stand with us against this evil violence. Rampant Islamophobia has been on the rise for a number of years.feedback

Mohammed Shafiq

I utterly condemn the senseless and evil van attack against Muslim worshippers outside the Finsbury Park Mosque in London. According to eyewitnesses this was a deliberate attack against innocent Muslims going about their life. We should make clear that if this attack is confirmed as a deliberate terrorist attack then this should be classed as an act of terrorism.feedback

Sergei Ryabkov

This strike has to be seen as a continuation of America's line to disregard the norms of international law. What is this if not an act of aggression? It is, if you like, help to those terrorists that the US is fighting against, declaring they are carrying out an anti-terrorism policy.feedback

Anwar Gargash

We have tried the carrot with Qatar, and now we must try the stick. What we have learnt in the past few years is the grey area between extremism and terrorism has become more defined. The extremist narrative has to be countered to defeat terrorism.feedback

Daulat Waziri

The United States knows we are in the fight against terrorism, . We want to finish this war in Afghanistan with the help of the NATO alliance.feedback

Monika Bickert - Facebook

More than half the accounts we remove for terrorism are accounts we find ourselves, that is something that we want to let our community know so they understand we are really committed to making Facebook a hostile environment for terrorists.feedback

Hany Farid - Facebook

We've known that extremist groups have been weaponizing the internet for years. So why, for years, have they been understaffing their moderation? Why, for years, have they been behind on innovation?feedback

Chris Folkman - Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty

The focus of terrorism has shifted to loss of life, rather than money, which can cause devastating loss of revenues to industries like hospitality.feedback

Paulo Pinheiro

The imperative to fight terrorism must not, however, be undertaken at the expense of civilians who unwillingly find themselves living in areas where ISIL is present.feedback

Chuck Fleischmann

It's about the person. We have people in this country, sadly, who have just a horrific value system – somebody like this, today, who would do that, people who engage in terrorism. They will unfortunately find their weapon of choice.feedback

Sarah Isgur Flores

We have asked the Supreme Court to hear this important case and are confident that President Trump's executive order is well within his lawful authority to keep the nation safe and protect our communities from terrorism.feedback

Mohamed Dayri

Help would come through a lifting of the embargo on weapons, so our army can receive material and weapons, so as to deal with this rampant terrorism.feedback

Recep Tayyip Erdogan

We appreciate Qatar's laid back and constructive stance. Trying to isolate Qatar, which certainly carries out an efficient fight against terrorism, will not contribute to resolve any problems.feedback

Paulo Pinheiro

We note in particular that the intensification of airstrikes, which have paved the ground for an SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces) advance in Raqqa, has resulted not only in staggering loss of civilian life, but has also led to 160,000 civilians fleeing their homes and becoming internally displaced. The imperative to fight terrorism must not, however, be undertaken at the expense of civilians who unwillingly find themselves living in areas where ISIL (ISIS) is present.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

We have decided to go further on a concrete plan to reinforce the obligation of social media companies to remove content that promotes hate and terrorism online. Current measures are not enough. The door of course is still open as long as Brexit negotiations have not been concluded, but a sovereign decision to leave the EU has been taken and I respect that decision.feedback

Thierry Andretta - Mulberry Group

Perhaps it's down to the election or terrorist attacks but we have seen double-digit growth via digital.feedback

Thierry Andretta - Mulberry Group

To have another factory we need to have volumes up by 20% from today. It's a question of timing.feedback

Thierry Andretta - Mulberry Group

During the year we have made good progress. Our sales and profits are growing, enhancing our strong cash position. We have advanced our international growth strategy with a new partnership in Asia and the continued expansion of our omni-channel offer in key markets. We have generated strong creative momentum with new products that are well received by our existing and new customers.feedback

Theresa May

Our discussions today have focused on the greatest security challenge our two countries face: tackling terrorism and rooting out the extremism that fuels it. Both our countries have sadly experienced the horrors of terrorism all too recently.feedback

Lindsey Graham

I'm going to make an argument that soft power is very important in winning the war against terrorism, it's important for our national security. When you look at the hard/soft power mix of this budget, it's way off kilter.feedback

Chris Ward

I must stress that this incident is not being treated as related to terrorism and there is no threat to the wider public.feedback

Ayatollah Khamenei

You [the United States] and your agents are the source of instability in the Middle East... Who created Islamic State? America ... America's claim of fighting against Islamic State is a lie. America is a terrorist country and backs terrorism... therefore, we cannot normalize ties with such a country.feedback

Theresa May

The counter-terrorism co-operation between British and French intelligence agencies is already strong, but President Macron and I agree that more should be done to tackle the terrorist threat online. In the UK we are already working with social media companies to halt the spread of extremist material and poisonous propaganda that is warping young minds. We are united in our total condemnation of terrorism and our commitment to stamp out this evil.feedback

Becky Clark

Some cathedrals and larger churches do also provide specialist training for staff and volunteers to keep visitors safe. That includes counter-terrorism training which is provided through co-operation with police.feedback

Donald J. Trump

One of the big things that we did - and you're seeing it now with Qatar and all of the things that are actually going on in a very positive fashion - we are stopping the funding of terrorism, . They are going to stop the funding of terrorism. It's not an easy fight, but that's a fight we're going to win. You have to starve the beast. And we're going to starve the beast, believe me, . We've had tremendous success against ISIS in our fight in the Middle East, where we're doing very, very well.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We are stopping the funding of terrorism. You have to starve the beast, and we're going to starve the beast.feedback

Ali Shareef Al Emadi

He started his speech by really praising Qatar. So I think the message was very clear from the American administration that we're taking good part in this and we're working with our allies, with our partner, with our fried really to combat.feedback

Ali Shareef Al Emadi

I will not put any names here, but I think I will leave this for the audience.feedback

Ali Shareef Al Emadi

I think everybody that works very closely with us will understand clearly where we stand on these issues. And that's why we're working very closely with our allies to explain where we stand on those things, and we're happy to address if there's any specific issue that we are not aware of.feedback

Ali Shareef Al Emadi

I think what we're seeing today is a little bit of up and down here, but we understand that this is a delicate situation for all the regions in the Gulf and hopefully that we can come out of this in a much stronger way for Qatar.feedback

Boris Johnson

Qatar is a partner of the UK in the fight against terrorism but they urgently need to do more to address support for extremist groups, building on the steps they have already taken to tackle funding to those groups. I am also concerned by some of the strong actions which Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Bahrain have taken against an important partner, and urge them to ease the blockade on Qatar. I call on all states to take immediate steps to de-escalate the situation and to find a rapid resolution through mediation.feedback

Shafiq Qureshi

An anti terrorism court of Bahawalpur has awarded him the death sentence. It is the first ever death sentence in a case that involves social media.feedback

Anwar Gargash

Qatar has been riding (the) tiger of extremism & terrorism. Cost to region & world too high. Diplomacy only way forward. Process can only work following clear indication that Qatar will stop support & finance of extremism & terrorism.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Stop funding (terrorism). Stop teaching hate. Stop the killing. So we had a decision to make: Do we take the easy road or do we finally take a hard but necessary action? We have to stop the funding of terrorism... the time had come to call on Qatar to end its funding they have to end that funding and its extremist ideology in terms of funding. I want to call on all of the nations to stop immediately supporting terrorism, stop teaching people to kill other people, stop filling their minds with hate and intolerance... we will solve that problem. Have no choice.feedback

Russ Jackson

This is very much a live criminal investigation moving at considerable speed. It is a terrorism investigation relating to 22 murders and multiple attempted murders. It will continue at its current pace as we work to understand the full extent of the involvement of anyone else. We will be speaking with more people. Work around CCTV, financial transactions and telephone contacts will continue as we piece together the movements of Abedi in fine-grain detail.feedback

Arlene Foster

I had no need to say it to Jackie McDonald. [He] knows my views. If people want to move away from criminality, from terrorism, we will help them do that, but anyone who is engaged in this sort of activity should stop, should desist, and if they don't they should be open to the full rigour of the law.feedback

Donald J. Trump

To do that, stop funding, stop teaching hate and stop the killing. For Qatar, we want you back among the unity of responsible nations. We ask Qatar and other nations in the region to do more and do it faster. I want to thank Saudi Arabia and my friend King Salman and all of the countries who participated in that very historic summit. It was truly historic. There has never been anything like it before and, perhaps, there never will be again. Hopefully it will be the beginning of the end of funding terrorism. It will, therefore, be the beginning of the end to terrorism. No more funding.feedback

Dean Haydon

It looks as if it is pretty much a contained plot involving the three of them, which is supported by the forensic evidence we've got back so far. There was no evidence uncovered of any attack-planning in relation to him.feedback

Dean Haydon

From what I'm seeing, there is nothing that suggests at the moment that we got that wrong.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Stop funding (terrorism). Stop teaching hate. Stop the killing, . So we had a decision to make: Do we take the easy road or do we finally take a hard but necessary action? We have to stop the funding of terrorism. I decided, along with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, our great generals and military people, the time had come to call on Qatar to end its funding -- they have to end that funding -- and its extremist ideology in terms of funding.feedback

Dean Haydon

Because of the fact his payment method failed he couldn't get hold of that lorry. My view at the moment is that he then went to plan B and ended up hiring the van instead. When I come back to Butt trying to get hold of a 7.5 tonne lorry – the effect could have been even worse. Was there a plan B that, after they had stabbed individuals, were they then planning to come back to the van and ignite the Molotov cocktails and that was a secondary attack? We don't know – I can only surmise.feedback

Sadiq Khan

London is open. Our resilience, unity and defiance of those evil individuals who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life will never change. As we mark one week on from the appalling attack, we are coming together to raise money for the victims and their families. I urge all Londoners to do what they can to support this appeal and show the world that we are a city that will never be divided or cowed by terrorism.feedback

Dean Haydon

We don't know – I can only surmise.feedback

Dean Haydon

It's feasible when you look at their actions, they were still fairly close to the van, there is a possibility they could have come back to the van. Was there a plan B that, after they had stabbed individuals, were they then planning to come back to the van and ignite the Molotov cocktails and that was a secondary attack? We don't know - I can only surmise. My view at the moment is that he then went to plan B and ended up hiring the van instead.

Donald J. Trump

No civilized nation can tolerate this violence or allow this wicked ideology to spread on its shores.feedback

Donald J. Trump

In Mosul, American troops are supporting Kurds, Sunnis and Shias fighting together for their homeland. Qatar, which hosts the U.S. Central Command, is a crucial strategic partner. Our longstanding partnership with Kuwait and Bahrain continue to enhance security in the region.feedback

Věra Jourová

My preference is to go for this as an extraordinary measure for extraordinary threats, for high gravity criminal offences such as terrorism and there I am in favor of enabling the use of personal data.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The nation of Qatar, unfortunately, has historically been a funder of terrorism at a very high level. Nations came together and spoke to me about confronting Qatar over its behavior. So we had a decision to make. Do we take the easy road, or do we finally take a hard but necessary action? We have to stop the funding of terrorism.feedback

Vladimir Putin

I like Senator McCain to a certain extent. And I'm not joking. I like him because of his patriotism, and I can relate to his consistency in fighting for the interests of his own country. People with such convictions like the Senator you mentioned, they still live in the Old World. And they're reluctant to look into the future, they are unwilling to recognise how fast the world is changing. Right now there are common threats we are both facing, like international terrorism. We've got to fight poverty across the world.feedback

Miranda John

I was a Remainer. But I accept that the will is to leave, so we need to get the right deal.feedback

Mohammed bin Abdulrahman al-Thani

We have been isolated because we are successful and progressive. We are a platform for peace, not terrorism. This dispute is threatening the stability of the entire region. We are not ready to surrender, and will never be ready to surrender, the independence of our foreign policy. There cannot ever be a military solution to this problem.feedback

Sadiq Khan

I'm calling on all Londoners to pull together, and send a clear message around the world that our city will never be divided by these hideous individuals who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life. London will never be cowed or divided by terrorism.feedback

Stephane Dujarric - United Nations

The Secretary-General hopes those responsible for this unjustifiable violence will be swiftly brought to justice. All countries must work together in fighting terrorism while upholding the universal rights and values that bind the global community.feedback

Henry Wynn

I'll confess, we're in a mildly depressive mood. We face a bleak future with the Tories and I don't know if we're going to do it.feedback

Steven Fielding

He's genuinely enjoyed campaigning because there's no pressure on him. There's a very obvious contrast with May only engaging a small number of Conservative activists at an empty storage facility on the edge of town.feedback

Steven Fielding

She'll still win the election, but she'll be weaker for it. Jeremy Corbyn will lose the election, but he'll be stronger for it.feedback

Rosa Prince

Up until the campaign, events had played to her strengths. But she does have her frailties. And campaigning seems to have brought a lot of those out.feedback

One attack is unfortunate. Two attacks is: 'Should we have been doing more? Is the government failing us?' . Questions are being asked about her that weren't being asked before. Her image has taken a hit.feedback

As a result, the thematic drivers of performance for H2 17 have shifted to include not only the Trump and Yellen trades, but also the Volatility reversal trade and the increased risk associated with Terrorism and Cybersecurity. Managers positioned tactically long and short which are able to navigate both rising and falling volatility market cycles are likely to lead industry performance in H2 17.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I am proud to announce Christopher as my choice as the Director of the FBI. During his previous service at the Department of Justice, Christopher was the leader of major fraud investigations, and was a key part of the team overseeing the Justice Department's actions in the war on terrorism following the 9/11 attacks. He is an impeccably qualified individual, and I know that he will again serve his country as a fierce guardian of the law and model of integrity once the Senate confirms him to lead the FBI.feedback

The girl upstairs was like a tap-dancing elephant. I feel it was domestic terrorism. I don't know how I lived there. I was not seeing the charm in any of them. They were old and stinky, and the windows were in weird places.feedback

We grieve and pray for the innocent victims of the terrorist attacks in Iran, and for the Iranian people, who are going through such challenging times. We underscore that states that sponsor terrorism risk falling victim to the evil they promote. No discussion of stamping out this threat would be complete without mentioning the government that gives terrorists all three– safe harbor, financial backing, and the social standing needed for recruitment. It is a regime that is responsible for so much instability in the region. I am speaking of course of Iran.feedback

CNN and some other media sit and wait for any kind of scandal ... to automatically and without any evidence blame it on Russia or Russian hackers.

Many people will see it for what it is, which is a rather crass last minute attempt to divert attention from the much more difficult questions around our anti-terrorism policy.feedback

James Lankford

The work of the FBI and the Intelligence Community is extremely important for our fight against terrorism, and the FBI continues to be at the forefront of fighting crime. With the many threats that the US faces domestically and internationally, we need a strong FBI Director. In the coming weeks, we will evaluate Christopher Wray's qualifications to lead the FBI and his plans for our security and law enforcement.feedback

A more long-term effect will be that passengers will shy away from booking with Qatar Airways. This is the strongest accusation to date of Qatar being connected with terrorism. Many travellers and corporate accounts could blacklist Qatar Airways.feedback

Theresa May

If I am elected as Prime Minister on Thursday, that work begins on Friday. MI5 and the police have already said they would be reviewing how they dealt with Manchester and I would expect them to do exactly the same in relation to London Bridge. What Government needs to do is, and what the Government that comes in after Thursday's election needs to be willing to do, is to give more powers to the police and security service when they need them, needs to deal with this issue of terrorism and extremism online and also needs to be able to call out extremism here in the United Kingdom.feedback

America's cities are critical partners in the fight against terrorism -- and taking away this funding would undermine the national priority to secure the homeland.feedback

Donald J. Trump

During my recent trip to the Middle East I stated that there can no longer be funding of Radical Ideology. Leaders pointed to Qatar - look! So good to see the Saudi Arabia visit with the King and 50 countries already paying off. They said they would take a hard line on funding …. extremism, and all reference was pointing to Qatar. Perhaps this will be the beginning of the end to the horror of terrorism! Qatar, which hosts the U.S. Central Command, is a crucial strategic partner.feedback

Robert Malley

This is an illustration of the competing priorities and contradictions facing this administration, which will prove hard to reconcile. You can't be all-out against Iran, all-out against ISIS and terrorism, and maintain 'America First' – another way of saying keeping a light footprint in the region.feedback

Keir Starmer

The prime minister’s kneejerk proposal to rip up laws to fight the growing terrorist threat is a dangerous distraction. There is nothing quite like working on a counter-terrorism case in real time. When I was director of public prosecutions, from 2008 to 2013, I had a first-rate counter-terrorism team, who worked closely with the police and the security and intelligence services to defeat and disrupt terrorism.feedback

Keir Starmer

There is nothing in the Human Rights Act that gets in the way of effectively tackling terrorism. I can say that with this authority. I was director of public prosecutions for five years. I've worked very closely with the security and intelligence services and we've prosecuted very, very serious criminals and the Human Rights Act did not get in the way of what we were doing.feedback

Claire Soltzed

I am voting Conservative because I would never vote for Jeremy Corbyn, but May is also very weak on terrorism and is an indecisive leader without principles. In no way am I a May supporter, but she is the lesser of two evils.feedback

I do not like Theresa May. The last few weeks have shown how weak she is on terrorism. I did not think that it was a main issue until the last few weeks and now I am worried about my kids and about safety. May has cut police officers and made our country less secure.feedback

William Wagner

I hate Theresa May. My main issue is terrorism. We need to stop it right away.feedback

Keir Starmer

I absolutely empathise with victims of terrorism. What we need to do is take action that is effective. We need to ask searching questions about the prime minister's record over the past seven years and why we have got to a stage where three attacks in three months have taken place and what's the relationship between that and some of the cutbacks that have been taken.feedback

Malcolm Turnbull

This battle against terrorism is fought at home and around the world and everywhere it depends on brave men and women - unconquered, unconquerable, committed to the values of freedom for which we stand and which our fathers and mothers and grandfathers and grandmothers have stood for generations.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

We must be brave enough to admit the 'war on terror' is simply not working. We need a smarter way to reduce the threat from countries that nurture terrorists and generate terrorism. Many experts, including professionals in our intelligence and security services, have pointed to the connections between wars our government has supported or fought in other countries and terrorism here at home.feedback

Theresa May

What we need to do now is see how the threat is evolving, and it is evolving, we're seeing terrorism breeding terrorism.feedback

Irene Navis

Fortunately, not one agency is going to get the whole amount; it's split up. So, for one agency, it might be that they get $25,000 for equipment and the match is really small. Agencies that get a large amount of money, that's something that they would have to consider. But, in general, in our urban area, it would not be a problem.feedback

Mak Chishty

This terrorist attack is an attack on all communities, including Muslim communities. Every time a terrorist attack takes place Muslim communities either face or fear a backlash against them. The Muslim community appeals to all sections within their own communities to root out the scourge of terrorism which hides amongst their own people and masquerades as Islam.feedback

Donald J. Trump

During my recent trip to the Middle East I stated that there can no longer be funding of Radical Ideology. Leaders pointed to Qatar - look! Perhaps this will be the beginning of the end to the horror of terrorism! We are friends. We've been friends now for a long time indirectly, haven't we? Our relationship is extremely good. We have some serious discussions right now going on. One of the things that we will discuss is the purchase of lots of beautiful military equipment because nobody makes it like the United States.feedback

They hate that I can get the honest and unfiltered message out.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

And I think every country in the region has their own obligations they need to live up to, and they have their own challenges to live up to that commitment to terminate support for terrorism, extremism, however it manifests itself anywhere in the world.

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.feedback

Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani

He received a call from the emir of Kuwait asking him to postpone it in order to give time to solve the crisis.feedback

Malcolm Turnbull

There have been too many cases of people on parole committing violent offences of this kind. It is clear that this is a real issue where people with known records of violence, including people with known terrorist connections, or at least connections with extremists, have been released on parole. This terrorist attack by a known criminal, a man who was only recently released on parole, is a shocking, cowardly crime. It is a terrorist attack and it underlines the need for us to be constantly vigilant, never to be deterred, always defiant, in the face of Islamist terrorism.feedback

Tehran views the heightening tension between Qatar and other regional Arab powers as an opportunity to weaken the Gulf Cooperation Council and the U.S.-Arab alliance created during Trump's last trip to Riyadh to fight terrorism and counter Iran and its proxies in the region.feedback

Theresa May

I have been responsible for giving the police extra powers to deal with terrorism. Jeremy Corbyn has boasted that he has opposed those powers and opposed the powers for anti-terror actions throughout his time in parliament. And I also support, absolutely, shoot-to-kill and I think what we saw on our streets on Saturday was how important that was.feedback

Rafael Behr

Theresa May once understood that the EU made Britain more secure. Now she pretends we can safely break free. It is hard to keep a sense of perspective in the final days of a campaign, amid the cacophony of closing arguments. The background scene is blurred in the sprint to the finish line. Tension and uncertainty have been amplified by a savage terrorist attack. It is impossible to know exactly how the monstrosity perpetrated around London Bridge on Saturday will weigh upon the decisions voters make in the polling booth. But it is fair to suppose that the timing was not coincidental. Whoever plotted that attack, and the one in Manchester two weeks earlier, surely intended to disrupt the democratic process.feedback

Tom Cotton

The general counsel of the CIA will help Director (Mike) Pompeo navigate the many twists and turns of the thorny legal terrain as our intelligence community defends our country against a wide range of threats: terrorism; cyberwarfare; and good, old-fashioned espionage. We need people of the highest caliber serving at our national-security agencies. And there is broad agreement that Courtney Elwood fits the bill.feedback

Boris Johnson

I can't answer that question now. What I can say is that we are not only going to invest in our counter-terrorism but we are also looking at, as the Prime Minister said, as Theresa said on Sunday, we're looking at a range of intensified measures to tackle this hydra-headed problem.feedback

Donald J. Trump

While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau. Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS and terrorism. I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.feedback

Z Fareen Parvez

I’ve spent years conducting research in devout Salafi communities. Theresa May’s focus on ideology as a means of tackling terror could backfire. In her comments in the aftermath of last weekend’s attacks in London, Theresa May suggested a new direction in the struggle against terrorism. Insisting that “things need to change”, she pointed to the problems of “segregated, separated communities” and “too much tolerance of Islamist extremism”.feedback

Boris Johnson

The invitation has been issued and accepted and I see no reason to change that. I don't wish to enter into a row between those two individuals who are able to stick up for themselves. The mayor of London will know over the eight preceding years when I was mayor, before he became mayor, we kept police numbers high at about 32,000 and crime came down very considerably in that period. And when you look at counter-terrorism we are putting more money into that.feedback

Duncan Lewis

I have absolutely no evidence to suggest there is a connection between refugees and terrorism. Really needs to think again on this issue.feedback

Kristian Ulrichsen

One of its pitches (to secure the World Cup) was that Qatar is one of the most stable countries in the Middle East. Qatar will know that there are alternatives, so they will be looking over their shoulder.feedback

Clay Higgins

Terrorists certainly take advantage of the politically correct madness that consumes the West. This is about prioritizing national security and protecting American lives. Every measure must be taken to eliminate radical Islamic terrorism and the threat it poses to the free world. Not a single radicalized Islamic suspect should be granted any measure of quarter. Their intended entry to the American homeland should be summarily denied. Every conceivable measure should be engaged to hunt them down. Hunt them, identify them, and kill them. Kill them all.feedback

Theresa May

We have protected counter-terrorism policing budgets, we have also provided funding for an increase in the number of armed police officers. This was an attack on London and the United Kingdom, but it was also an attack on the free world.feedback

Steve Hilton

Theresa May responsible for security failures of London Bridge, Manchester, Westminster Bridge. Should be resigning not seeking re-election. I am so sick of Theresa May blaming others for terror when the system she presided over has obviously failed so lamentably.feedback

Simon Milner

That means we do not allow groups or people that engage in terrorist activity, or posts that express support for terrorism. We want Facebook to be a hostile environment for terrorists. Using a combination of technology and human review, we work aggressively to remove terrorist content from our platform as soon as we become aware of it. We have long collaborated with policymakers, civil society, and others in the tech industry, and we are committed to continuing this important work.feedback

Theresa May

JTAC, the independent joint terrorism analysis centre, have confirmed that the national threat level remains at severe, that means that a terrorist attack is highly likely. It is now clear that, sadly, victims came from a number of nationalities. This was an attack on London and the United Kingdom, but it was also an attack on the free world. The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police has said that the Met is well resourced, and they are, and that they have very powerful counter-terrorism capabilities and they do.feedback

Karen Bradley

What I'm interested in is making sure that we have the right resources, the right powers, and the right training and capabilities. I am assured by the police that they have that to deal with the counter-terrorism threat, but we need to look, learn lessons and make sure that we act where appropriate and we need a leader who is prepared to take those decisions, and that is Theresa May. Piers, we are here to talk about how the attack on Saturday, how we react to that attack, and how we make sure on Thursday that we have the right person elected to Downing Street so that we can deal with it.feedback

Theresa May

We believe we are experiencing a new trend in the threat we face, as terrorism breeds terrorism. It's time to say enough is enough.feedback

Louis Caprioli

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

Rex W. Tillerson

We certainly would encourage the parties to sit down together and address these differences, . If there's any role that we can play in terms of helping them address those, we think it is important that the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) remain united. All of those parties you mentioned have been quite unified in the fight against terrorism and the fight against Daesh, ISIS, and have expressed that most recently in the summit in Riyadh.feedback

Karen Bradley

I think that's a very simplistic argument. The Met Police Commissioner has been clear, they have the resources they need to deal with counter-terrorism. You're being too simplistic in suggesting it's just about the number of police officers. It's about capability, it's about resourcing, it's about training, it's about powers. The number of specialist officers and the counter-terrorism budget has been protected and has increased in real terms. We've seen reductions in police numbers across the board and that's because we had to take difficult decisions in 2010.feedback

Mohammed Shafiq

Butt called me a 'Murtad,' which means traitor in Arabic, and accused me of being a government stooge when I confronted Anjem (Choudary) about him supporting terrorism and my public campaign against Lee Rigby's murder. It is clear that Anjem (Choudary) and his band of terrorist sympathizers were known to the police for many years. I am not surprised that Khuram Butt carried out the terrorist attack and there are serious questions for the authorities.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

Chris Hunter

If we have our freedoms curtailed because of terrorism, the terrorists have won anyways. But if terrorism is actually impacting our freedoms, we need to do something about it. It's the first time in the 25 years I've worked in counter-terrorism that I've heard one of our leaders be succinct about how we approach this.feedback

Donald J. Trump

At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!'. Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don't want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart!feedback

Julie Bishop

The issue of defence support in national counter-terrorism arrangements is already being considered.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

You cannot protect the public on the cheap. The police and security services must get the resources they need, not 20,000 police cuts. Theresa May was warned by the Police Federation but she accused them of 'crying wolf'. We do need to have some difficult conversations, starting with Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states that have funded and fuelled extremist ideology. It is no good Theresa May suppressing a report into the foreign funding of extremist groups. We have to get serious about cutting off the funding to these terror networks, including Isis, here and in the Middle East.feedback

Mark Serwotka

Nobody here will say: 'If it wasn't for this cut, that wouldn't have happened.' It would be folly to say so. But what we can say is that the figures speak for themselves and questions need to be asked – you need to put resources into continually keep people safe. We believed from the information we have that there has been a significant cut in the counter-terrorism budget in London in the period when Theresa May was home secretary.feedback

Sadiq Khan

Terrorists "hate democracy, they hate elections. They want to stop us voting on Thursday … we can't allow them to do that, we can't be cowed by terrorism. There aren't words to describe the grief and anger our city is feeling. I'm appalled and furious that these cowardly terrorists deliberately targeted innocent Londoners and visitors enjoying their Saturday night. I condemn unequivocally these terrorists in the strongest possible terms. They are evil cowards and London will never be cowed. We will never let them win.feedback

Sajid Javid

There's no avoiding the fact that these people [the attackers] think they are Muslims. They identify as Muslims. And they carry out their attacks – ignorantly, offensively – in the name of Islam. That's why, although we all share the responsibility for tackling terrorism, there's a special, unique burden on the Muslim community. We need them to set off on the path to peace rather than the road to war.feedback

Terrorist groups have wanted to strike the United Kingdom for a long time and they've been very persistent in their effort.feedback

Theresa May

On Thursday the people of the UK have a very simple choice. The Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police has said that the Met is well resourced, and they are, and that they have very powerful counter-terrorism capabilities and they do. We have protected counter terrorism policing budgets, we have also provided funding for an increase in the number of armed police officers and since 2015 we have protected overall police budgets - and that's despite the fact that Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party in the House of Commons suggested that police budgets could be cut.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

I think what we're witnessing is a growing list of irritants in the region that have been there for some time, and they've bubbled up so that countries have taken action in order to have those differences addressed. I do not expect that this will have any significant impact, if any impact at all, on the unified – the united – fight against terrorism in the region or globally. All of those parties you mentioned have been quite unified in the fight against terrorism and the fight against Daesh, Isis, and have expressed that most recently in the summit in Riyadh.feedback

Karen Bradley

We have seen a protection or an increase in the budget for counter-terrorism policing.feedback

Cressida Dick

We do have a very, very powerful counter-terrorism effort, but as I have indicated, the threat does seem to be changing, so we need to look at our strategy, we need to look at our resourcing, we need to look at the techniques we're using.feedback

Richard Barrett

I’ve worked on counter-terrorism since before 9/11. We have to do more than escalating the same old policies. Addressing the nation outside No 10 Downing Street on Sunday morning, the prime minister spoke forcefully about the need for change, both in society’s tolerance of extremism and in the government’s counter-terrorism strategy.feedback

Karen Bradley

We have been protecting counter-terrorism police budgets. We have more specialist officers, we are now in the process of recruiting an additional 1500 armed police officers.feedback

Karen Bradley

This is not a pub quiz. We've seen reductions in police numbers across the board. It's not just about numbers, it's about powers, Jeremy Corbyn for 30 years has voted every single times about those powers. That's the choice we face. We have protecting counter-terrorism police budgets. We have more specialist officers, we are now in the process of recruiting an additional 1500 armed police officers.feedback

Tim Farron

We have a government anti-terrorism engagement strategy that isn't trusted and doesn't listen to communities, even when they do try to speak out about those – like Salman Abedi – who are considered a danger. In the choice between ineffective mass surveillance, and investment in the sort of intelligence we are told is best – on the ground and closest to our communities, trusted and appreciated – Theresa May chose the former through the Investigatory Powers Act.feedback

Theresa May

We need to work with allied democratic governments to reach international agreements that regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning. And we need to do everything we can at home to reduce the risks of extremism online. As the nature of the threat we face becomes more complex, more fragmented, more hidden, especially online, the strategy needs to keep up. The whole of our country needs to come together to take on this extremism, and we need to live our lives not in a series of separated, segregated communities, but as one truly United Kingdom.feedback

Gerry Northwood

Theresa May

We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue as they are, . We believe we are experiencing a new trend in the threat we face as terrorism breeds terrorism, and perpetrators are inspired to attack not only on the basis of carefully constructed plots after years of planning and training, and not even as lone attackers radicalised online, but by copying one another and often using the crudest of means of attack. Violence can never be allowed to disrupt the democratic process, so those campaigns will resume in full tomorrow and the general election will go ahead as planned on Thursday.feedback

Theresa May

We need to work with allied democratic governments to reach international agreements that regulate cyberspace to prevent the spread of extremist and terrorism planning. We must not forget about the safe spaces that continue to exist in the real world. Yes, that means taking military action to destroy Isis in Iraq and Syria. [T]here is - to be frank - far too much tolerance of extremism in our country. So we need to become far more robust in identifying it and stamping it out across the public sector and across society. That will require some difficult, and often embarrassing, conversations.feedback
