I blame these increasing terror attacks on the current Islamophobia post-9/11 where Islam & 1.3 bn Muslims have collectively been blamed for any act of terror by a Muslim. This has been done deliberately to also demonize legitimate Muslim political struggles. https://t.co/5bBREoayLz

When Lucy & I went with John & Bronagh Key to the Bataclan in 2015 we could not imagine a terrorist attack in Christchurch. Today our love, prayers and solidarity are with the people of New Zealand whose compassion, humanity & diversity will triumph over this hateful crime. https://t.co/NKjuLVmtKs

Some people just want to do damage and cause as much carnage as they can in the world. Horrified to hear what happened in New Zealand. My thoughts and love are with those affected today

We stand united with our friends in New Zealand.
Tonight there are children going to bed missing a parent. Parents who have lost a child.
Their tragic losses follow acts of cowardly hatred.
Let’s honour their memories by strengthening our commitment to compassion and love.

Muslims believe that prayer works, and the ones in New Zealand were killed during jumu’a (Friday prayer) by terrorists deliberately targeting their religion. It is neither appropriate nor “woke” to respond to this attack by mocking the idea of prayer.
— Jeremy McLellan (@JeremyMcLellan) March 15, 2019
Later today, I will visit @GlasgowMosque. New Zealand may be on the other side of the world but I know that for Muslims here, what has happened will feel very personal and close to home. As we send our love to #christchurch, we must stand united here.

My heart goes out to the victims of the despicable terror attacks in Christchurch, and their loved ones, and my solidarity is with the people of New Zealand as they stand together against this loathsome act of racial and religious hatred.

Condemn in the strongest possible terms, the barbaric, violent act of terrorism at a mosque in Christchurch New Zealand. Unfortunate rise in white supremacist
& Islamaphobic attacks. Thoughts and prayers with the victims & people of New Zealand.

في يوم سلام كيوم الجمعة وفِي مكان عبادة كالمسجد شهدنا أبشع جريمة كراهية دينية راح ضحيتها ٤٩ من المصلين. تعازينا لنيوزيلندا ولأهالي الضحايا ولكافة المسلمين وباسمي وباسم بلدي التي خصصت عاما كاملا للتسامح ندين ونعرب عن عميق حزننا وندعوا العالم لوقفة مراجعة لترسيخ التسامح بين الأديان
