[George] Soros blames America for "this clash of civilizations" between the West and radical Islam because "we were basically the dominant power in the world" and so "no terrorist attack could . . . really endanger us."
Instead of waging a war on terror, Soros says, we should read G.K. Chesterton's 1907 fantasy thriller "The Man Who Was Thursday" and learn to infiltrate terrorist groups. According to Soros, that's how the British defeated the IRA.
"We have to renounce, repudiate the war on terror," he said, but quickly added: "We have to defend ourselves against terrorists. We have to protect ourselves. But we mustn't make it the be-all and end-all of our policy."
