Emmanuel Macron

[Standing] alongside all those who are fighting against racism and xenophobia. [It is] our joint fight, both yesterday and today. #Charlottesville.feedback

Owen Jones

So-called Labour moderates refuse to diagnose their failures. No wonder they’re out in the cold. If a new so-called centrist party is to be set up, why not call it Denial, or perhaps Hubris? Self-described centrists believe that they are the besieged remnants of political sanity in a world gone mad. To be a centrist, so this story goes, is to be above ideology: pragmatic, focused on “what works”, being grown up. They are the moderate stabilisers, or according to this narrative it is their marginalisation that has opened the way to the extremes. In this centrist worldview, the xenophobic, racist or indeed fascist right are deemed to be politically and morally equivalent to the radical left.feedback

Natalie Nougayrède

From Turkey to China, strongmen rewrite the past to suit their ends. But democracies are not immune to this revisionism. On 22 July, the Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán stood before university students and delivered a speech titled “Will Europe belong to Europeans?” It contained rambling passages about how a “Soros plan” was in place to bring in “hundreds of thousands of migrants every year – if possible, a million – to the territory of the European Union from the Muslim world”. The aim was to transform the continent into “a new, Islamised Europe”. This, Orbán argued, was what lay behind “Brussels’ continuous and stealthy withdrawal of powers from the nation states”. Orbán has form when it comes to this kind of paranoid vision. He’s an authoritarian populist who has made a habit of stoking xenophobia and anti-Muslim sentiment. He eagerly amplifies far-right conspiracy theories about the Christian majority being threatened by demographic “replacement”. His message isn’t just fake news about the present, however. It comes laced with historical distortion.feedback

Peter Lantos

We are the last generation to bear witness. When we die, no one can say 'I was there' ... It's important for the centre to be more than a record and testimony of the past. It is also a stark and powerful reminder, and warning to a future generation [of] what can happen when xenophobia and intolerance can lead to genocide. The basic question is whether we should forget about these events altogether, draw a line under it and start a new life, or whether we should remember. As a survivor, I don't have any doubt that we should never forget what happened in Europe in the middle of the 20th century.feedback

Nomzamo Zondo

The only reason are vulnerable is because Mashaba thinks people will support him. He's counting on Jo'burgers being xenophobic.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

Both Democrats sincerely concerned about the viability of a sane, two-party system and #NeverTrump Republicans horrified at what’s become of their once-admirable party have been pondering since Election Day how - or if - the GOP can free itself from President Trump’s grip. How to break the Trump fever - a brew of xenophobia, ignorance, nativism and contempt for facts (for the very notion that there are such things as facts)? Perhaps the answer is simple, hiding in plain sight.feedback

Betsy Hodges

We cannot compound that tragedy by turning to racism, xenophobia and Islamophobia. It is unjust and ridiculous to assert that an entire community be held responsible for the actions of one person. That will not be tolerated in Minneapolis.feedback

Johanna Konta

I was actually born in Australia to Hungarian parents but I've lived here for half my life now almost and I'm a British citizen and I'm incredibly proud to represent Great Britain...I've represented Britain in the Olympics so I'm definitely a British athlete.feedback

John Denham

We know, for example, that some Labour activists worry that engaging with Englishness means making concessions to racism and xenophobia. It doesn't, and we'll help show how.feedback

Michael Vachon

Last week the Fidesz-led government launched a nationwide billboard and television advertising campaign reminiscent of Europe's darkest hours. The Hungarian regime's xenophobia and demonization of refugees are anti-European. Soros's actual position on migration is that the international community should provide more support to the developing countries that today host 89 percent of refugees and that Europe should accept several hundred thousand fully screened refugees through an orderly process of vetting and resettlement.feedback

Alexander Zotov

We are gathering the organisations who are interested in trying to change this perception of Russia as a very closed, discriminatory, aggressive society and at the same time educate young people that racism and discrimination and xenophobia are bad. It happens because of a lack of education. Not a lot of people would go to the stadiums. They were mostly occupied by people whose families were thrown out of normal livelihoods because of the shift from the Soviet Union when the country was dissolved. People didn't have any money.feedback

John Hardman

The grim reality is that the perception from overseas is we are xenophobic, we're racist, and the pound has plummeted too. We've gone with Brexit and that makes us look unfriendly. The immediate impact is that there will be crops left in the fields. [The warning] couldn't be more timely with Wimbledon around the corner as 99.9% of Wimbledon strawberries are picked by eastern Europeans.feedback

Christopher Massimine

How can arts companies, representing different backgrounds and races and creeds, be more impactful than ever? Xenophobia is a dangerous byproduct of these times. We want to contradict and discredit it.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

There is no topic about which both parties have spewed more economic nonsense than trade. Preying on populist ignorance and xenophobic fears, politicians have taken something that is unarguably of tremendous value to the United States and turned it into an evil. You’d think that trade was making us poorer.feedback

Dani Ledezma

Oregon hasn't resolved its history. The xenophobia, the racism, the caustic narrative that has been fomented at the national level are also having an impact here and adding to that legacy here in Oregon. It's economic, it's criminal justice, it's segregation. If you look at the housing patterns, there is this lasting legacy of disparity that's been essentially baked in.feedback

George Soros

I am full of admiration for the courageous way the Hungarian people have resisted the deception and corruption of the mafia state the Orban regime has established. Most Europeans of my generation were supporters of further integration. Subsequent generations came to regard the EU as an enemy that deprives them of a secure and promising future. This feeling was reinforced by the rise of anti-European, xenophobic parties that are motivated by values that are diametrically opposed to the values on which the European Union was founded.feedback

Jacopo Tondelli

Practicing Catholics can hardly embrace xenophobia, and Catholics in name only don't care about religious issues at all. In between, there's a large group of people who feel strongly about their Catholic identity but don't feel obliged to listen to everything that the pope says, especially if it doesn't suit them. You know, people who fight to keep the crucifix in every classroom, but don't attend Mass.feedback

Danny DeVito

What is it? Why doesn't anybody want to pay taxes and just fix the country and make everybody have a good life? It's really crazy. [We] can't let that happen. Can't have that xenophobia and building walls and kicking everybody out. Do everything you can to make sure that Donald Trump doesn't become president.feedback

Dale E. Ho - American Civil Liberties Union

He's a person who has built a political career on xenophobia. It's worked great for him, but not for the people he has disenfranchised.feedback

Joseph Downing

They're stuck in a place where nobody is representing them. They don't want a continuation of Macron's neo-liberal policies but at the same time they're not the people who would vote for the far right, they're not xenophobic, protectionist or nationalist.feedback

Mireille Escarrat

The FN is xenophobic, racist and anti-feminist. For me it feels like the 1930s. We're going backwards.feedback

Robert Russell

The case of our friend and colleague incarcerated at the Papua New Guinea, Manus Island Detention Center – Eaten Fish – is the perfect example of these forces. We, along with many other institutions and individuals – from the absolute grass roots right up to UNHCR and the British, Australian and Canadian parliaments – have not been able to find him safe passage to a welcoming country. Over the last year or two progress has definitely been made, but the forces of xenophobia seem to be powered by some ancient pool of dark energy worthy of any of Stan Lee's dark comic books.feedback

Rainbow Murray

It's about [giving] more money to French people by getting rid of everybody else, so there's still that xenophobic element to it.feedback

Cas Mudde

In the United States, nativist actors have had indirect effects on policy at best, as the nativist voices within the Republican Party, for example, have not made it into prominent positions in government. The elite is considered to be corrupt because it works in the interest of the non-natives or it undermines the native group. Increasingly the immigrant is seen as a Muslim, not a Turk or Moroccan. This doesn't mean that Trump [made] people xenophobic or nativist. A large portion of the population everywhere in the world is nativist.feedback

Bernie Sanders

The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it. And unfortunately, there are people like that.feedback

William Easterly

William Easterly is a professor of economics at New York University and author of “The Tyranny of Experts: Economists, Dictators and the Forgotten Rights of the Poor.”.feedback

Belén Sisa

They're starting to see what immigrants are up against. Even when an immigrant does the right thing, it's not good enough. It's not about us doing the right thing. It's about the fact that racism and xenophobia are alive and well in this country.feedback

Leo Rayman

The second thing (is), the more different people you have, the more different start points for ideas and in creative industries particularly, in creative roles, require lots of different minds coming together in collision to get to new versions of ideas and ways into problems.feedback

Larry Valenstein

So to honor our founders, we're making a statement against intolerance and prejudice, by doing what Lawrence and Arthur couldn't back in 1917. We're putting their names on our door. A symbol of where we're from, how far we've come and how much there is still left to be done.feedback

Leo Rayman

The things that cause that are so much deeper, but to be a bastion for openness at difficult times would seem to me to be a good thing. It's like the tip of an iceberg in a sense, this renaming exercise, because it draws attention and shows the staff in the company how seriously we're taking diversity in the workplace.feedback

Leo Rayman

And also using it as a moment to throw a bit of a gauntlet down to the wider creative industry, but particularly the advertising industry, and say: What can we collectively do to genuinely make a difference in how open we are to different types of people working for our companies? If you want to market to people in this country and other countries, you'd like to think that you had an ability to understand them and empathize, and the more different people you have the easier it will be to do that.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

Bill de Blasio

President Trump's latest threat changes nothing. We will remain a city welcoming of immigrants, who have helped make our city the safest big city in the nation. Any attempt to cut NYPD funding for the nation's top terror target will be aggressively fought in court. We won't back down from protecting New Yorkers from terror – or from an overzealous administration fixated on xenophobia and needless division.feedback

Emma McNally

The image of women coming together from different communities and holding hands has significant symbolic power, particularly in the online world where so much xenophobic and racist language is shared.feedback

António Costa

Mr. Dijsselbloem has insulted us. Mr. Dijsselbloem has shown himself to be sexist, racist, xenophobic and an embarrassment for Europe, and because of that he cannot hold any EU post.feedback

Ali Partovi

I feel like there's a very fertile ground for a campaign like this to take root, a way to affirm that we do stand for equality and freedom and they're not okay with xenophobia or targeting people based on national heritage. They haven't been sure how to express that in a positive way, a fun way, in a way that's not political.feedback

David Lammy

This week Nigel Farage met Marie Le Pen and we are sending a message that we don't want that kind of fascism and xenophobia across our planet and in our country. My parents arrived in this county in the 1950s to signs that said 'no blacks, no Irish, no dogs' and we thought because of so much strife that by the time we got to the 21st century we had turned our backs on racism. And then, we get June the 21st. We get a rise in hate crime across the country almost by 50%.feedback

Bassel Almadani

I understand the travel ban was done with the impression for securing a place of safety for Americans. I feel it is short-sighted and perpetuates the xenophobia that exists in this country. It wasn't until the immigration ban went into place that people became more intent on the issue and more supportive of the cause.feedback

Michael Sapin

Voters from the left, right and center will know to react with one concern – put Mrs. Le Pen on the side, reassure what France is, its principles but also reassure from an economic, financial, budgetary, European point of view. Reassure on the future of the euro, reassure on all these points and we will have the opportunity to do so. We need to show to the rest of the world that the extreme right, extreme right-wing nationalism, extremism, including xenophobic extremism is not France and we should all unite to put them aside.feedback

Neera Tanden

Throughout the world, there isn't a model of success for the marriage of xenophobia with libertarianism.feedback

Julie Roginsky

If the RGA would like to spend 2017 litigating Donald Trump's xenophobia, we would welcome that debate. When they are finished defending Donald Trump's message of exclusion, perhaps we could next ask them to devote some time to defending Governor Christie's economic record in N.J.feedback

Gijs De Vries

That is a feeling many people have and it's genuine and it should be taken very seriously. At the same time it's also clear you have a number of politicians who actively fan the flames of xenophobia. And it's obvious Mr Wilders is one of them. If you go into the elections saying you will close all Islamic schools, even though you want Christians to be free to form their schools, you are clearly trying to exploit a divide. He's got support but many people find he's going much too far.feedback

Mevlut Cavusoglu

Unfortunately Europe and several countries in Europe, the Netherlands being in the first place, they are reminiscent of the Europe of World War II. The same racism, Islamophobia, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, we see all the crimes against humanity in today's politics. What are you going to do? Are you going to kill them, burn them or what?feedback

Amelie Kirchgaessner - British Antarctic Survey

Due to the increased xenophobia in the general population, I personally don't feel welcome in the UK any longer. This is emphasised by the government's position. Instead of strongly condemning these tendencies, it seems to be silently endorsing them.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

While the media kvelled over President Trump’s “tone” in his address to Congress, the centerpiece as it was in the campaign remains a xenophobic, false narrative about immigrants. No subject took up as much time in so many different variations - illegal immigrants, the wall to keep out immigrants, sanctuary cities that conceal immigrants, drugs brought in by immigrants, crime caused immigrants, a special office to help victims of crimes by immigrants. It is fair to say Trump, his base and both Stephen K. Bannon and Stephen Miller are obsessed with the topic.feedback

Redi Tlhabi

Redi Tlhabi is a radio and television journalist from Johannesburg.feedback

Gary Jacobson

They are less xenophobic, less anti-immigrant, and less white and better educated than their Republican elders.feedback

Jerry Moran

I strongly condemn violence of any kind, especially if it is motivated by prejudice and xenophobia.feedback

Salil Shetty - Amnesty International

It was a year when a poisonous political rhetoric of 'us versus them' surged across the world. Whether it was the xenophobic and sexist rhetoric of President Trump's election campaign, European leaders' assault on the rights of refugees, President Erdogan of Turkey's massive crackdown after the attempted coup there or the so-called war on drugs in the Philippines.feedback

Mokhtar Awad

They will simply double down on the strategy (of attacks) and instead of investing totally in the battlefields they use, they will try even harder than they have already to activate cells in different Middle Eastern and Western countries. An attack in the U.S., as horrific as it may be, is the perfect thing that will work in their favour to show Trump is weak, and embolden the most exclusionary and xenophobic attitudes that some in this (U.S.) administration may have.feedback

Ned Price

Nearly every racist & xenophobic movement in history could be said 2 target a 'minor portion' of a population.feedback

Philippe Couillard

I think it's a turning point for Quebec, to see people rallying around values like that. Our society is not perfect. No society is perfect... racism, xenophobia and exclusion exist here. We have to recognize that and act together to highlight the path we want society to take.feedback

Adnan Durrani

I'm very proud to be an American Muslim and I'm very proud of the contributions we make to America. Obviously it's troubling that [Trump] would make comments to stoke xenophobia, hate and fear to take advantage of that during his campaign. But politics can be dirty and this is America – politics is very much alive and vibrant in this country.feedback

Gregg Popovich

But there's a difference between respecting the office of the president and the person who occupies it. That respect has to be earned. It's hard to be respectful of someone when we all have kids, and we're watching him be misogynistic and xenophobic and racist and make fun of handicapped people.feedback

Sophie Walker

We are here to reject the hatred and the division that Donald Trump put forward so clearly yesterday in his inauguration speech and his approach to politics. We are marching today to reject the rise of xenophobia in our own country and to demand that the process of Brexit thinks about equality and prioritises equality above division and hatred here too.feedback

Mindy Freiband

We're not marching as an anti-Trump movement per se, we're marching to protest the hate speech, the hateful rhetoric, the misogyny, the bigotry, the xenophobia and we want to present a united voice with women around the globe.feedback

Barbara Lee

I will not be celebrating or honoring an incoming president who rode racism, sexism, xenophobia and bigotry to the White House.feedback

Oskar Deutsch

A couple of nice comments about Israel do not make this party kosher. The FPO's whole past – and in fact, its present – is still xenophobic, and its leaders are trying to set parts of the Austrian population against each other.feedback

Anne-Laure Donskoy

I was on the Tube last week and I'm re-reading some French classics and I thought 'Do I pull my book out of my bag or do I not? What's going to happen if I do?' I never used to feel so self-conscious. We know there's stuff happening in the playground too where children are passing on their own parents' hostility and xenophobia.feedback

Ashley Lynne Nagel

I have a leader I fear for the first time in my life. It's not that we're sore losers. It's that we are genuinely upset, angry, terrified that a platform based off of racism, xenophobia and homophobia has become so powerful and now has complete control of our representation.'.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

We care deeply about diversity. That's easy to say when it means standing up for ideas you agree with. It's a lot harder when it means standing up for the rights of people with different viewpoints to say what they care about. That's even more important. Do not involve racism, sexism, xenophobia or accepting sexual assault.feedback

Priyanka Chopra

They (Condé Nast) specially got this (t-shirt) made and implored me to wear it. They said they were addressing xenophobia which is a big issue that is happening.feedback

António Guterres - United Nations

Diversity can bring us together, not drive us apart. We must make sure that we are able to break this alliance between all those terrorist groups or violent extremists on one side and the expressions of populism and xenophobia on the other side. These two reinforce each other, and we must be able to fight both of them with determination.feedback

Horst Kretzschmar

Both attacks are related in timing. Although there is no claim of responsibility so far, we must go on the basis that the motive was xenophobic.feedback

Tim Kaine

If you cannot call out bigotry. If you cannot call out racism, xenophobia... If you cannot call out and you stand back and be silent about it then you are enabling it to grow. You are enabling it to become more powerful. We want to be a nation of the positive virtues not the dark emotions and not the negative virtues.feedback

Hillary Clinton

To just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic – you name it.feedback

Hillary Clinton

To be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic – you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.feedback

Hillary Clinton

To just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic–you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.feedback

Hillary Clinton

You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic - you name it.feedback

Hillary Clinton

To just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic - you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.feedback

Hillary Clinton

To just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic -- you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.feedback

Hillary Clinton

To just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic -- you name it.feedback

Hillary Clinton

You know, just to be grossly generalist, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic – you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.feedback

Hillary Clinton

You know, to just be grossly generalist, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables … the racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.feedback

Hanspeter Kruesi

At the moment we are not treating this as a terrorist attack, or as a politically-motivated or xenophobic crime. We have no indications of that. Neither do we have any indications that it was a crime of passion. We have absolutely no information on what the motive might have been. As far as we currently know, he acted alone.feedback

Bob Carr

The treasurer's decision ... is a huge concession – the first major policy sacrifice – to the Witches' Sabbath of xenophobia and economic nationalism stirred up in the recent federal election. The treasurer is conceding to economic populism in the Senate.feedback

Meg Whitman - Hewlett-Packard

Donald Trump's demagoguery has undermined the fabric of our national character. As a proud Republican, casting my vote for president has usually been a simple matter. This year is different. To vote Republican out of party loyalty alone would be to endorse a candidacy that I believe has exploited anger, grievance, xenophobia and racial division.feedback

Judy Chu

We see a trend with Republicans where they've become more and more extreme and where there's increasingly xenophobic kind of rhetoric, and certainly that's exemplified in Trump.feedback

Andrew Weiss - Carnegie Endowment for International Peace

It's a gross oversimplification to suggest that the Russian government is all-in for Donald Trump. It's in Russia's interest ... to portray the United States as riven with popular discontent, xenophobia and high-level political corruption. It fits nicely with the Kremlin's standard narrative ... that the White House rushes to criticize others without getting its own house in order.feedback

Endre Sik

We've been monitoring xenophobia since 1992: first it was rising very slowly and then in 2010 it started to rise faster. It had a boom in 2015 and it hit a record high by the beginning of 2016.feedback

Attila Juhász

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

Áron Varga

The more people who see xenophobia can be a key to a political success, the more people will use that strategy.feedback

Ashton P. Woods

That does something to the human psyche. I don't care what color or ethnicity you are. We could say the same things about white hate groups that inspire xenophobia or hatred against Muslims. We can't really focus on whether people are going to cast us as a hate group when we are working to dismantle hate.feedback

Harriet Harman

The leaders of the Brexit campaign have engendered an atmosphere where some people believe it is open season now for racism and xenophobia.feedback

David Cameron

Let's remember these people have come here and made a wonderful contribution to our country. And we will not stand for hate crime or these kinds of attacks. They must be stamped out.feedback

Guenther Oettinger - European Union

With every day of uncertainty, investors in the whole world will be discouraged from investing in Great Britain or from believing in Europe.feedback

Robert Hormats - Kissinger Associates

We can't totally assume Brexit is not going to win. This demonstrates the intensity of the nationalistic, xenophobic, anti-immigration feeling that exists in the U.K. [and] other parts of Europe.feedback

Martin Schulz - European Parliament

But it's not Europe's habit to be xenophobic, racist and anti-European.feedback

Sebastien Moreno

We estimate that the chanting for which we are accused of as a team are isolated acts. Fortunately there's been a tendency to decrease the extent of this kind of activity. But these songs persist among a very isolated sector of fans. They are very few in number, but this is a reality that's come to be installed by the FIFA (punishing xenophobic acts) and we have to take care of it, not hide these problems of discrimination. And beyond taking repressive steps, we have to educate our fans.feedback

Ban Ki-moon - United Nations

Such policies and measures negatively affect the obligations of member states on the international humanitarian law and European law. I welcome the open discussions in Europe including in Austria on integration. But I am alarmed again about growing xenophobia here and beyond.feedback

Barack Obama

The forces that lead to the most violence and the most injustice typically spring out of people saying: 'I want to feel important by dividing the world into us and them.feedback

Barack Obama

When I speak to young people, I implore them, and I implore you, to reject those calls to pull back.feedback

Nicola Sturgeon

I am a European. I lived many years in Brussels. I rather love the old place. And so I resent the way we continually confuse Europe – the home of the greatest and richest culture in the world, to which Britain is and will be an eternal contributor – with the political project of the European Union. It is therefore vital to stress that there is nothing necessarily anti-European or xenophobic in wanting to vote Leave on 23 June.feedback

Colleen Bell

Words of intolerance and xenophobic characterisations of refugees – as invaders and antagonists have no role in our efforts to find a solution.feedback

Matthew Moran

This is an insidious and xenophobic rhetoric that often draws a blanket equation between terrorism and Islam. This discourse is not new but the shocking nature of the attacks meant that it perhaps resonated with a wider audience than in the past.feedback

Boris Vishnevsky

Xenophobia and hatred of everything 'other' is practically in the government's ideology. Moreover, recently, xenophobia and other ideas have become popular even in liberal circles. And it's really important that today people with liberal and democratic views go to the streets and protest against this infection in our country.feedback

Masha Gessen

Twenty months ago he looked out his window and saw the first set of huge protests. What he saw were enemies protesting not his regime, but Russia itself. That meant they were foreigners. The 'others'. And LGBT people are the quintessential foreign agents. The quintessential 'other'. It has nothing to do with homophobia, per say. It's xenophobia in general. But who better personifies foreign or western influence than LGBTs. So we're the first target but we're not going to be the only target. It's going to broaden out.feedback

Giorgi Baramidze

Russia shows absolutely unacceptable behaviour, pursuing a kind of ethnic cleansing policy, exercising xenophobic rhetoric and their deeds very much look like the Nazi Germany time in 1930.feedback

Elena Valenciano

We think that the Popular Party's is trying a xenophobic, racist campaign and if it works, they will use if for their campaign in 2012 election.feedback

Attila Mesterhazy

We find what Jobbik says unacceptable. I hope they don't want to shut Hungarian citizens up in concentration camps. The worst thing is that the Fidesz government has not distanced itself from Jobbik's xenophobic platform. It should.feedback

Giorgos Tsarbopoulos - United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees

The economic situation's created a climate where slogans and xenophobic rhetoric and easy solutions that are not solutions of course of 'kick them out, let's take the law into our own hands' can more easily be propagated in a population which faces problems regarding security and public order.feedback

Ueli Maurer - Swiss Finance

Black sheep means people or incidents which trouble us. Everyone would like to get rid of them but it has nothing to do with black or white in the context of racism.feedback

Ronnie Bernheim

It is a bad way of politics but unfortunately, very often, including in this country, a successful one.feedback

Eric Besson

It (the biometric test) will help to ensure that those who have already received aid will not get it a second time.feedback

Klaus Vogel

This building was a top propaganda site for racial purity during the Nazi era. The exhibition offers a good opportunity to work with young people to familiarise them with xenophobia and racial hatred.feedback

Angela Merkel

Xenophobia, racism and anti-Semitism must not be given a chance in Europe and outside of Europe's borders, not only in the Arab sphere, but also in other parts of the world. Ladies and gentlemen, let's make note of the lessons learned from history and say: we must not remain silent.feedback

Paulo Rangel

I think it's important to have voices in the parliament that are against European federalism. This is a good debate. The problem is not the debate for or against European integration, it is the policies against immigration, it is xenophobia and racism that are the problem.feedback

Jose Manuel Barroso - European Commission

We should not forget that in Europe, not so many decades ago, we had very, very worrying developments of xenophobia and racism and intolerance. So I think everybody that has European principles should be worried about some of these movements.feedback

Jose Manuel Barroso - European Commission

What we don't like is the discourse that is sometimes behind anti-European slogans, a discourse that is promoting what I call negative values, things like narrow nationalism, protectionism and xenophobia. That is a concern.feedback

Mohammed Ansar

What we have seen is a ratcheting up of tensions. We have seen hysteria about Muslims and Islam, fear and hatred and xenophobia against foreigners and immigrants and, in that political cauldron, these kind of sparks can cause real, real damage and that is the danger, that communities do not turn on themselves.feedback
