George Soros says US approach to terrorism creates hate
Turkish Press ^ | Published: 3/8/2005

MADRID - US billionaire financier George Soros on Tuesday slammed as dangerous Washington's strategy to fight terrorism, saying it was creating anger and resentment around the world.

Speaking on Spanish radio station Cadena Ser the day an international conference on terrorism opened in Madrid, Soros said Spain had "a very different response to terrorism -- a healthier response."

The Hungarian-born businessman, who spent millions last year opposing US President George W. Bush's reelection, said US policies had had negative consequences.

"Producing innocent victims creates anger and resentment. And this anger and resentment feeds terrorism," he said, according to the station's Spanish translation of his English comments.

In Iraq, he said, "there are more people wanting to kill Americans than there were before.

"These people didn't think like that before the Americans arrived and did what they did. The attitude of creating innocent victims creates terrorists. It's as simple as that."

Soros was among more than 200 personalities, leaders and experts attending the conference on terrorism underway in Madrid.

The three-day symposium is to be followed Friday with solemn commemorations marking the one year anniversary of the March 11, 2004 train bombings in the city which killed 191 people and wounded 1,900.

An Islamic extremist cell with links to Al-Qaeda has been blamed for the attacks, which gave a new context and challenges to Spain's anti-terrorism strategy, focused up to then on the four-decade-old conflict with the Basque separatist group ETA.

So, George Soros is at it again ~ during a time of war he goes to foreign countries and smears us.

It's time to take this ex-Nazi informant and send him packing back where he came from.

American anti-terrorism..." creating anger and resentment around the world."

Really?? What precipitated THEIR 9/11 attacks? Does he live under a stone or is he just a half-wit? What the Terrorists are getting from the US right now, they invited on themselves.

Any approach to fighting terrorism will generate hate. Appeasement only makes them hate the fact that you have enough money to pay them off, and want more. Negotiating with them makes them hate you for being weak, and they'll attack you again. Doing nothing makes them hate you for what you have and what you are (which they were doing before anyway). Killing them makes them hate you for obvious reasons.

Only one of these approaches is guaranteed to lead to fewer terrorists.

It's that voting thing. Like the royalty of 100 years ago there are people that just hate the "little people" votingf to be free.

Is there a way to have a do over with Soros and take his money and let him try it again or is he too rich and connected in DC to have to live like the rest of us?

Yes, anger and resentment among terrorist financial backers, because their terrorist partners can not deliver.

Dear DUmb George, the hate is already there, otherwise there would be no terrorism. All we are doing is reacting to it. (and in some cases being pro-active towards it)

Note to Georgie Boy: Terrorism creates a lot of anger and resentment in the United States. So why do you not just shut up? You are contributing to global warming!

George Soros is a creep. If he wasn't so rich, no one would have anything to do with him. He buys attention. And his money allows him to act like his vote counts for more than ours. Is that charming or what? Creepy jerk.

Soros is full of it. We're doing exactly the correct things: extending the olive branch of liberation and freedom for those who want it, and the arrows of war to the terrorists.

They guy does nothing but stir up anti American hate (both within and without the US) and has the audacity to critique the USA's approach to dealing with anti Western fiends? What is wrong with this picture? Here is one area where you and I probably agree - any Eastern European political groups who accept and receive support from this bozo are making deals with the devil.
