Turkey knows the importance of its ties with Israel; it knows it’s in the same moderate camp with Israel, the moderate Palestinians and other Muslim countries, and the threat to Turkey is not from us.

So we mustn’t lower our guard in any sense because of what has happened in terms of the death of Osama Bin Laden and we are certainly not doing that. The terror threat level here in the U.K. remains at severe and we’re very conscious of the need to continue that.
The target of preventive war must have several characteristics. It must be virtually defenceless; it must be important enough to be worth the trouble; it must be possible to portray it as the ultimate evil and an imminent threat to our survival.
Al Qaeda still remains a threat.
It’s too easy to dismiss Donald Trump as a buffoon – to point and laugh at a man whose worldview is as ridiculous as his hairdo. But to do so is to make light of a very serious threat.

When people think about ‘thinking,’ they often think ‘academia;’ they think ‘threat.’ They think ‘coldness.’ I want to reverse all those images and say, ‘No, the brain God gave you is intended to throw fuel on the fire of your affections for God. It’s really good at it if you let it.’
Pneumococcal disease is a real threat. Pneumococcal disease is a bacterial infection that causes anything from middle ear infection to pneumonia to meningitis. Children are particularly vulnerable to it, but adults can get pneumococcal disease themselves.
I have very fond memories of the ’80s; they were very formative years for me. I certainly remember the Cold War. It was a closer doorstep for the Brits than the Americans, so it was a very real and palpable threat at the time.
Time is a gift and a threat because we are bodily creatures. We only come into existence through the bodies of others, but that very body destines us to death. We must be born and we must die.

Our fumbling government’s response since Beirut – during both Republican and Democratic administrations – has been to cut and run, or to flat ignore this growing threat, apparently hoping it would go away.

If Senator Kerry understands the nature of this threat and the need to take on terror, then he should immediately repudiate these troubling comments, and stop all efforts on behalf of his surrogates to blame America for these attacks.

During the 1990s, world leaders looked at the mounting threat of terrorism, looked up, looked away, and hoped the problem would go away.

When the physical threat of coronavirus subsides, as it surely will, we must address the impact to our mental health.

I think you can applaud President Trump’s efforts on health care if that’s where you lie.

Every time I went on TV I got a threat.
The people of Shishmaref want their community to survive, but they are holding on to their legacy by a very delicate thread indeed. The threat of their land disappearing is only the beginning.

But even after the first week, when Hart got out of the presidential race because of the Washington Post’s threat to reveal a long-term relationship Hart had apparently been having with a prominent Washington woman, the media continued to embellish my past.

There is no doubt ISIS poses a clear, direct threat to the United States, and decisive action is badly needed.
Lots of countries, like Israel, live with terrorism every day, and it doesn’t impact their integrity.

The Islamic terror threat is so fierce, unrelenting and barbaric that we tell ourselves fairy tales about how these ruthless acts are anything but what they are: acts of war.

Benteke is a threat when he’s fit, fully motivated and firing on all cylinders.

So, I guess motherhood and the threat of not being able to pay my rent inspired me to be a novelist. But as far as what inspired me to be a writer, it’s the stories. It sounds very cliched, but the stories rise up and demand to be told. They always have done, long before I became a writer.
While consumers may be more shocked by pink slime or the feeding of Prozac to poultry, the routine feeding of millions of pounds of human antibiotics to chickens presents a much graver threat.
Yes, ISIS is a threat. It’s more than a nuisance. It’s also in many respects criminal violence. But it isn’t, in my view, a central strategic issue facing humanity.

When something is presented as an existential threat, it is very easy to scare the Israelis.
I’m asking myself, ‘What do my girls, what do all our children deserve in their president? What kind of a president do we want for them?’ Well, to start with, I think we want someone who is a unifying force in this country: someone who sees our differences not as a threat, but as a blessing.

In today’s interdependent world, a threat to one becomes a menace to all. And no state can defeat these challenges and threats alone.

There is no greater threat to Washington, D.C., than Bernie Sanders, and they know it.

As a former CIA case officer, I recognize that the rapid rise of firms like Huawei and ZTE presents a significant national security threat to the telecom infrastructure of the United States and our allies.

We have to face the reality of climate change. It is arguably the biggest threat we are facing today.
So what we’re talking about here is human rights. The right to live like a human. The right to live, period. And what we’re facing in Africa is an unprecedented threat to human dignity and equality.

Once someone is no longer a threat, you look at them like anybody else.

I could never understand why they did that to Barry Sanders in Detroit. I know that’s one of the reasons why he retired, because they took him out on third down and let someone else catch the ball. I thought they must be out of their mind because Barry is such a threat.
President Trump’s threat to weaponize federal funding is not only unconstitutional but emblematic of the cruelty he seeks to impose on our most vulnerable communities.

Nevertheless, there is another threat on the horizon. I see this threat in environmentalism which is becoming a new dominant ideology, if not a religion. Its main weapon is raising the alarm and predicting the human life endangering climate change based on man-made global warming.
Music is an expression of who you are, and – at least in that sense – I think I epitomize Black Lives Matter. I’m a big black man, and I’m easily misunderstood. Before I started wearing these African clothes, people would assume that I was a threat and that it was O.K. to be violent toward me.
I have had no concerns in the past and have none moving forward regarding the Navy’s ability to effectively address any potential natural or man-made threat to Naval Station Mayport and any military asset located there, including any future nuclear aircraft carrier.

By stopping Brexit, investing in skills and providing tailored support to key industries, we can get the UK economy back on track and help the communities that have been hit hardest by the threat of Brexit.
Why should Iran have a deterrent strategy? Well, it’s surrounded by hostile enemies. Both of its borders have been under occupation by a hostile superpower, the United States, which is constantly violating the U.N. charter by leaving open what they call the saying, ‘all options are open’ – meaning the threat of war.
What I’m concerned about are two things. I think one that John Miller talked about, and that’s the radicalization over the Internet that ISIS is very adept at doing. The other one is a foreign fighter threat.
The death of compromise has become a threat to our nation as we confront crucial issues such as the debt ceiling and that most basic of legislative responsibilities: a federal budget. At stake is the very meaning of what had once seemed unshakable: ‘the full faith and credit’ of the U.S. government.
Even if you don’t believe in God, exploring fully the idea of a god or gods should pose no threat to you.
I didn’t realize that running as an independent would be perceived as a threat to the Democrats.

I got to go out there and catch the ball, be more of a deep threat.
After the threat of war is gone, we should not turn our backs on the men and women who eliminated that threat. We should embrace them and keep our promises we made to them.
I think in many ways that we autistic are the normal ones and the rest of the people are pretty strange. They keep saying that climate change is an existential threat and the most important issue of all. And yet they just carry on like before.
We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandated of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them.
Sufis were always spreading love with their music, and if some kind of extremism is a threat to it, it is a threat to all humanity.
I know people socially who live in countries where the wealth gap is more extreme than it is in America, and they live with full-time security. They live with the threat of getting kidnapped, or they live with the threat of people invading their homes.
We must challenge this statement and this sentiment that the news media is the enemy of the American people. This sentiment may be the greatest threat to democracy in my lifetime.
In the case of climate change, the threat is long-term and diffuse and requires broad international action for the benefit of people decades in the future. And in politics, the urgent always trumps the important, and that is what makes it a very difficult and challenging issue.
It has been, after all, 11 years, more than a decade now, of defiance of U.N. resolutions by Saddam Hussein. Every obligation that he signed onto after the Gulf War, so that he would not be a threat to peace and security, he has ignored and flaunted.
The assertion that the war in Iraq has had no role in increasing the terrorist threat to Britain is clearly just intellectually unsustainable.

The FBI assesses HVEs are the greatest terrorism threat to the homeland.
There was no imminent threat. This was made up in Texas, announced in January to the Republican leadership that war was going to take place and was going to be good politically. This whole thing was a fraud.
To the contrary, I believe the U.S. military has already done all that has been asked of them. Saddam Hussein is on trial. The threat from alleged weapons of mass destruction programs in Iraq has been neutralized.
Putting aside the growing threat from Islamic jihadist terrorism, most of America’s problems are home grown. So when I say overthrow the establishment to fix the economy, and the brilliant businessman Wilbur Ross says we need radical new approaches to government, we’re talking two sides of the same coin.
It was always the intent, in a larger arc, to split the Avengers up before the greatest threat that they’ve ever seen.
Radical Islamic terrorists and those who fund it remain a credible threat to America and a clear and present danger to democracy.

The Obama administration is an affront to every freedom-loving American, and a threat to every private sector job in this country.
Leading up to Election Day 2008, candidate Barack Obama declared, ‘We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.’ Conservatives heard a menacing threat. For liberals, it was a rallying cry. The battle was on.
Seven hundred and sixteen billion dollars, funneled out of Medicare by President Obama. An obligation we have to our parents and grandparents is being sacrificed, all to pay for a new entitlement we didn’t even ask for. The greatest threat to Medicare is Obamacare, and we’re going to stop it.
The greatest threat we’ve had to economic growth has been that those in industry don’t know what is expected of them. Rules come that are outside of statutes. Rules get changed midway. It creates vast uncertainty and paralysis, and re-establishing a vigorous commitment to rule of law is going to help a lot.
I think to leave Europe would be a threat on the one hand to our economic security and on the other our national security.
Clearly, climate change is an extremely important threat to us.

The biggest threat to a better life is the desire to keep the future under control – to make the world predictable by reining in creativity and enterprise. Progress as a neat blueprint, with no deviations and no surprise, may work in children’s cartoons or utopian novels. But it’s just a fantasy.
The fight against terrorism will not be over tomorrow or next month, or even next year. The fight will endure for years to come, and as the threat changes, so too must we adapt to these transformations.
While one should never underestimate the ability of risk-besotted financiers to wreak havoc, the real threat to capitalism isn’t unfettered financial cunning. It is, instead, the unwillingness of executives to confront the changing expectations of their stakeholders.
Having witnessed first-hand the prowess of the Western Fleet, I am confident that the Indian Navy is fully capable of defending the nation against any form of threat.
In terms of the breadth of the threat of Al Qaeda itself – it’s not the only terrorist organization, and it works with others as cells around the world in at least 60 countries. You potentially are talking about tens of thousands of followers who can be conscripted into service to carry out a terrorist plot.
We clearly need to break our addiction on Saudi Arabian oil that is a security threat to the United States.
It is true that authoritarian governments increasingly see the Internet as a threat in part because they see the U.S. government behind the Internet.
As I’ve seen over and over again during my career, the best way to deter individual conduct is the threat of going to jail. That’s what truly changes behavior. That’s what changes the calculus as employees and executives decide whether to participate in an illegal scheme.
Environmental disaster is the gravest threat to China’s continued development. That’s according to me, but it is not some wacko view.
No one in a novel by Virginia Woolf ever filled up the petrol tank of her car. No one in Hemingway’s postwar novels ever worried about the effects of prolonged exposure to the threat of nuclear war.

I really believe zombies are a threat to our national security.
In the government’s eyes, the Branch Davidians were a threat.
My interest is that there is a disconnect between the science and the size of the threat that people mention about nature, the planet and the climate, and the emotion that this triggers. So we are supposed to be extremely frightened people, but despite that we appear to sleep pretty well.
There’s a lot of thought that bitcoin will be a huge threat to existing tax systems or existing ways governments have of controlling currency flows across their border. I personally think governments will do what governments have always done: they will adapt.
Al Qaeda is still a threat. We cannot pretend somehow that because Barack Hussein Obama got elected as president, suddenly everything is going to be OK.
In North America, the greatest threat to the Jewish people is not the external force of antisemitism, but the internal forces of apathy, inertia and ignorance of our own heritage.
There isn’t a more important issue in the world than global warming. Even the Cold War and the Bay of Pigs crisis were a notional threat.
There’s always new work to do. Adjusting to the rapid pace of technological change creates real challenges, seen most clearly in our polarized labor market and the threat that it poses to economic mobility. Rising to this challenge is not automatic. It’s not costless. It’s not easy. But it is feasible.
Mitt Romney said many years ago that he thought Russia was the single biggest geopolitical threat to the United States and their presence in a variety of conflicts of one type or another have borne out much of what Mitt Romney said.
The arrival of thousands of Muslim infiltrators to Israeli territory is a clear threat to the state’s Jewish identity. The refugees’ place is not among us, and the initiative to transfer them to Australia is the right and just solution.

We can best honor the memories of those who were killed on September 11 and those who have been killed fighting the war on terrorism, by dedicating ourselves to building a free and peaceful world safe from the threat of terrorism.
This is really honest: I have to remind myself not to look another black man as a threat.
Will Smith is one of my favorite actors, and he’s also a triple threat. He successfully crossed over from music into acting. Also, I liked ‘I Am Legend’ because it was so unexpected. The movie wasn’t what I thought it’d turn out to be.
Far and away, the greatest threat to the ocean, and thus to ourselves, is ignorance. But we can do something about that.
What we achieved under General Petraeus up through 2011, and defeating this threat that we faced out there, I mean, once we decided to come out of there, we squandered an enormous opportunity that, frankly, the military did actually provide our nation and provided the Middle East.
All the criticism and all of the praise, it doesn’t – it’s not worth the salt that goes on my bread, because TV is fickle. You can be loved one day and hated the next day. One day, you’re getting an award. And the next day, you’re getting a death threat.
Voters are hungry for principled, conservative fighters – because the threat to our liberties from Washington never has been greater.

I think of myself as a bit of a mother bear, and if anybody poses a threat to my kids they’ll see both my mother’s heart and my warrior spirit. I think that they’re compatible.
I think a lot of programs, policies have been put in place since 9/11, have prevented a 9/11-style attack. On the other hand, I think the threat has become greater, not lesser.
Confiscatory taxation enforced by threat of imprisonment is ‘stealing,’ a practice strongly frowned upon by our Creator.

Climate change is a threat to the conditions in which our economy can function at all.
I grew up in a time when women didn’t really do comedy. You had to be homely, overweight, an old maid, all that. You had to play a stereotype, because very attractive women were not supposed to be funny – because it’s powerful; it’s a threat.
It’s a big and growing problem, the amount of power possessed by Google and Facebook. President Eisenhower said it about the military-industrial complex. They pose a grave threat to our democracy.
President Obama was never going repeal Obamacare – he was not going to be brought to his knees with the threat of a government shutdown.

A threat to our freedom is a threat to our freedom, whether from a terrorist or from a trade deal.
It is standard practice for corrupt leaders who are seeking a certain political outcome to hype or manipulate a terror threat or a threat of violent domestic subversion. While sometimes the threat is manufactured, frequently the hyped threat is based on a real danger.

The politicization of the presidency would pose a real threat to the institution and its function.
I think the International Criminal Court could be a threat to American security interests, because the prosecutor of the court has enormous discretion in going after war crimes.

Trust me: our critical infrastructure is vulnerable to cyber-attack, to potential terrorist attack, and we are not taking this threat seriously enough.
But the threat posed by the radical Islamists represents an unusual conflict, unlike any experienced by our nation before: we face an enemy that is not a state.

Hopefully my time in Nashville has helped me.

I think any coach that’s gone through those things, you become a better coach.

The only sure way to eliminate the threat posed by nuclear weapons is to eliminate the weapons themselves.

Just riding horses every day keeps me going. And that threat of losing the mortgage.
Threat is in the eye of the beholder.
Now I’m just a threat. I’m a threat out there. Guys are running out at me, and I’m able to either give them a pump fake or let it fly. Guys are going over the screens, and I’m able to get into the lane and find my teammates a lot better. It just makes things a lot easier for me.
One of the sharp parallels is that neither Vietnam nor Iraq was the slightest threat to America’s national security.
The threat of terrorism is great and with today’s porous borders, someone could bring a biological weapon into our country or sneak a dirty bomb across unmanned portions of our borders.

It takes someone with a unique background to stand up to the threat of a strike and win.
I grew up with Scientology – my parents at one point were clerical. It’s a pragmatic philosophy, not merely a belief system. Yeah, it’s had media exposure because certain luminaries do Scientology, but millions of people do it who are not celebrities. It’s not a threat or some cult.
I want to differentiate between stability and security: Stability comes from the hearts of people and acceptance of the judicial system. Security comes from the barrel of a gun and the threat of the use of force.
Even though we know the origin of diseases, panic sweeps. It’s one thing that frightens us, because it’s your health and your body – it’s more like a tangible threat; it’s not like a foreign enemy you can fight. That was really what was uppermost to many of us whilst making ‘Black Death.’
Well, one thing’s very clear, that terrorism isn’t just a threat which is external to Western countries. It’s not simply a foreign menace that comes from overseas to strike our cities. It can and it does, as we now know, come from within our own countries and from inside our own populations.
Some have argued that confronting the threat from Iraq could detract from the war against terror. To the contrary, confronting the threat posed by Iraq is crucial to winning the war on terror.

When you look at Syria, and you look at all the militant groups on the ground, there are many groups in Syria that could pose a threat to the United States, not just Khorasan.
Our economic future and our energy future are one in the same, and it’s a future America can’t shrink from. We must shape it, just as we’ve always done. We have to protect our planet from the threat of climate change and ensure that workers have the skills to compete for good middle-class jobs.
Around the world, human traffickers trick many people into slavery by false promises of good jobs or good education, only to find themselves forced to work without pay, under the threat of violence.
The judgements about the severity of the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of a mass destruction – WMD – were presented with a certainty that was not justified.

Governments go to war directly or by proxy without declaring war. Force, or threat of force, are constantly used to dominate other countries.
The more original something is, the more of a threat it seems until the people catch up with it. That happened with Thelonious Monk. It happened with anybody who is really original.

Seventy years after China emerged from the Second World War, the greatest threat facing the nation’s leadership is not imperialism but skepticism.
Calling representatives every single day, arranging local community meetings, and marching in the streets every Sunday. It’s not the path to glory, but it’s absolutely essential to maintaining a democracy under threat.

I now sit at the table in a variety of ways with the House leadership… as we go through taking a look at threat assessments and hot spots around the world. It’s a national position, but certainly I don’t forget that New Jersey has a critical part of national defense.
For newspapers to continue to play an important role in civic engagement, they need more access to capital. Their decline has created a real threat to independent reporting at the state and local level.

The world is ruled by violence, or at least the imminent threat of violence. It always has been.

I don’t know how old I was when I first started going to shows, maybe 14 or 15, but very quickly, I discovered Dischord Records in D.C. and loved all the music on that catalog. I was a big Rites of Spring fan, Minor Threat, of course.
I don’t know how to exist before 9 A.M. And without coffee, I’m not classified as a human. Actually, I could be regarded as a threat.
I don’t feel we need to be independent for me to feel confident in my Scottish identity. I think Scotland is pretty comfortable in its identity. We won’t need independence to preserve it… if we don’t become independent, it won’t disappear; it isn’t under existential threat.
For too long Hezbollah has been able to conduct its illegal operations unhindered by the threat of a direct response from the United States.
We see China becoming an unstoppable force. It’s a huge threat and a huge opportunity.
The threat of extinction is more real than many realise. And the damage done to elephants directly leads to destruction of the ecosystem.
We all must recognize that homeland security funds should be allocated by threat and no other reason.
‘The Infinity War’ is meant to be a culmination film. It’s meant to join together all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe against an incredible universal threat – Thanos.
There are bands that I got into when I was 15, when I was mad at my dad and just wanted to be different. I don’t think I’d give those bands half a chance now. But I hold some kind of nostalgia for them that I won’t let go. Bands like Minor Threat and Black Flag.
Growing up during the Cold War, I remember the seemingly imminent threat of nuclear war. In primary school we were taught to ‘duck-and-cover’ for protection. But even as children hiding under wooden desks, we recognized the inadequacies of this strategy.
Anytime you go back and listen to old material, there’s always the threat of being surprised.
Few would deny the importance of tackling online hatred or child abuse content. The internet, after all, has become a key weapon for those who disseminate and incite hatred and violence against minorities, and for those who pose a horrifying threat to children.
