Ryan on Manchester Terror Attack: ‘We Will Never Bow or Bend to Radical Islamic Terror’

‘To deliberately target innocent children is cowardice in its most heinous form’


RYAN: "To deliberately target innocent children is cowardice in its most heinous form. So we should not be surprised that ISIS has claimed responsibility for this attack. But we will never bow or bend to radical Islamic terror. In Manchester, we have seen hotels taking in survivors. We’ve seen local residents offering beds to those who are stranded. We’ve seen taxi cabs driving back and forth through the night offering free rides to bring people to safety. As we speak, people on social media are reaching out to connect families with their loved ones. Terror is a threat that we all face together, and with our might and with our humanity, too. In that spirit I want to express solidarity of the whole House of Representatives to Prime Minister May and her government. We stand ready to help in any way we can. Because freedom, compassion and peace will always prevail over violence and hate.”
