Soros Believes Donald Trump Is Spreading Fear And Helping ISIS

George Soros made some comments on Bloomberg TV about Donald Trump during his visit to Davos. He believes that Trump is doing the work of ISIS by spreading the message of fear.

Soros explained that ISIS and Al-Qaeda have discovered the Achilles heel of the Western civilization and that is the fear of death. It interferes with reason and it is harmful when people are doing things because of fear. By fear mongering Trump and others are doing the work of ISIS.

The message is very simple, said Soros, and admitted that he found it difficult to resist it. The only thing that stopped him is the knowledge that it must be wrong to do what your enemy wants you to do. ISIS wants people to turn against the Muslim community, treat them with suspicion and convince the Muslim community that there is no alternative except terrorism.

At the same time, Soros thinks that the threat of ISIS should not be overestimated, because they are losing ground in the Caliphate.
