HUNTINGTON’S POLITICAL–SCIENTIFIC ANALYSIS OF THE CLASH OF CIVILIZATIONS 27 The economic dimension of international conflict is strongly represented in current events. A relatively neutral example is the American refusal to sign the Kyoto Protocol, a treaty on global warming, on the grounds that to do so would be harmful to the US economy. A more controversial example is the US attitude toward Iran after 9/11, a country that is apparently making progress toward developing nuclear weapons, but which also possesses oil as well as very large reserves of natural gas.

CHAPTER THREE Lewis’s Historical Account of Religious Difference It is but a short step from Huntington’s “official” view that 9/11 is explicable through a clash of civilizations to the further view that it is explicable through a clash of religions. This claim is an ad hoc thesis, invented specifically for the purpose of explaining 9/11 after it occurred. According to this thesis, 9/11 can be understood as a clash between two religions: Islam, which is ill-suited to the modern world, and Christianity, which is very much up to date.
