Do you agree or disagree with Huntington’s belief that an ongoing “clash of civilizations” is occurring and will inevitably lead to an endless war between a Christianized West and an Islamic East? If you do agree, does it widely expand our definition of terrorist threats? If not, how does Huntington err in his assessment of global terrorism? Your response should be at least 4 paragraphs.
