PacNet #1 – The Clash of Civilizations vs. the War on Terror: Some Hard Facts

Editor’s note: It is with deep sadness that we report the passing of a dear friend and leading Asia intellectual, Tan Sri Dr. Noordin Sopiee, Chairman and CEO of ISIS-Malaysia and one of the founding fathers of the Council for Security Cooperation in the Asia Pacific (CSCAP). This article was written by him 18 months ago but is still timely and relevant and is printed today to remind us of his wisdom and insights.
