The 9/11 attacks of Al Qaeda made George Soros emphasize that the U.S. government has to treat an event like this as a crime that has been committed against humanity. He says that this is not an act of war. Thus the response to the event has to be police action as military work is not the solution here.
Several organizations which are funded by George Soros also share the same viewpoint. All these are trying to ensure that all those who are being suspected as terrorists should be tried in civilian courts. They should not be taken to a military tribunal. It is important as all those military officers who serve as a judge or juror there are specifically trained in dealing with offenses committed during the war. These groups strongly disfavoring military tribunals are the American Constitution Society, besides the Center for Constitutional Rights, as well as American Civil Liberties Union along with Human Rights Watch. All these are funded by George Soros.
Another reason for this stance is that in a civilian court, there are enhanced rights as well as protections that are available to all defendants from these courts.
George Soros funds The Center for American Progress which is a left-wing Group that is formulating several policies for the Government. It provides various talking points that make it easy for the general public to understand the policies. These points would include the call of the Center as it asks for a gradual withdraw of the entire U.S. troops from Iraq. Next, it will be coupled with building up of forces that will be based inside Afghanistan. Another point was a plan to implement universal health coverage. Next was the creating of green jobs that can combat global warming which is threatening our planet in a big way.
Another organization funded by George Soros is The International Crisis Group. It is a nonprofit organization that makes several policy recommendations which can promote goodwill among nations. The Open Society Institute which is backed by George Soros has given $5 million to this entity. This was in 2008.
Another organization that is backed by him is J Street. It was founded in 2008. It is promoting meaningful American leadership so that the long-standing Arab-Israeli conflict can be settled in a peaceful as well as diplomatic manner. This would require setting a new direction for the American policy keeping the Middle East situation in mind. It has to realize that the Palestinians are rightfully entitled to their own sovereign state. This means that Palestine along with Israel has to exist alongside with each other to learn more about us: http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=977 click here.
In this way, George Soros has made his views on terrorism quite clear to all. He even says that the US is responsible for this rise in terrorism as it does not support human rights.
