CEP Condemns Today’s Violent Attacks in London

(New York, NY) – The Counter Extremism Project issued the following statement from CEO Ambassador Mark D. Wallace and President Frances F. Townsend in response to the terror attack on Westminster Bridge and subsequent stabbing outside of the Houses of Parliament: 

“The Counter Extremism Project strongly condemns today’s terrorist attacks in London, the latest in a series of ISIS-encouraged attacks utilizing motor vehicles that began in July 2016 in Nice, France, and was followed by the December Christmas market attack in Berlin. Coming on the one-year anniversary of the horrific, coordinated bombings in Brussels, today’s attacks sadly remind us that violent extremism remains a daily, deadly threat and that much more must be done to combat extremism in all its forms. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families and friends.”
