Here is a good Why Do They Hate Us? piece by Jacob G. Hornberger. “What would be wrong with ending the U.S. government’s role as world policeman, intervenor, meddler, and interloper, not only in the Middle East but also in the rest of the world?”

  1. Osama Bin Laden did not attack America because of Israel, but rather because infidel troops, ie Americans, were stationed on Saudi soil to defend Saudi ingrates against Saddam Hussein. So, in short, you Saudis repaid our defense of your lives and state with mass murder in our own home.

    Here is an alternate view of “The Roots of Muslim Rage” by Bernard Lewis, historian, in which he identifies the reason for Muslim hate as religious bigotry:

    “What is truly evil and unacceptable is the domination of infidels over true believers. For true believers to rule misbelievers is proper and natural, since this provides for the maintenance of the holy law, and gives the misbelievers both the opportunity and the incentive to embrace the true faith. But for misbelievers to rule over true believers is blasphemous and unnatural, since it leads to the corruption of religion and morality in society, and to the flouting or even the abrogation of God’s law. This may help us to understand the current troubles in such diverse places as Ethiopian Eritrea, Indian Kashmir, Chinese Sinkiang, and Yugoslav Kossovo, in all of which Muslim populations are ruled by non-Muslim governments. It may also explain why spokesmen for the new Muslim minorities in Western Europe demand for Islam a degree of legal protection which those countries no longer give to Christianity and have never given to Judaism. Nor, of course, did the governments of the countries of origin of these Muslim spokesmen ever accord such protection to religions other than their own. In their perception, there is no contradiction in these attitudes. The true faith, based on God’s final revelation, must be protected from insult and abuse; other faiths, being either false or incomplete, have no right to any such protection.”

  2. Tantor,

    American troops were stationed on Saudi soil to defend OIL and only OIL, it wasn’t to for the Saudi lives, it was for US benefits.

  3. Bernard Lewis, the vetern Orientalist. By the way, this is the same Bernard Lewis that is going along with far right neo con conspiracy theorists who claim that Shi’a, world wide, are going to do some massive active of violence or something similar to usher in the “Hidden Mehdi” on August 28th.

    I am going to sit and laugh when nothing happens. For all of the stick they give to Muslims about conspiracy theories I find it funny when they bang on “the sky is falling.”

    I can’t wait for them to write the “Protocols of the Learned Elders of Islam.”

    The things the anti-Semites said about Jews pre-1940s are the EXACT same things they are saying about Muslims now.

    We are out to rule the world, we control everything, we spread disease, we destroy every society we become part of, there are secret conspiracies all over the place involving Luslims. Heck, even when we dont get accused of that we get accused of corrupting innocent young Western women.

    Sad that these folks cannot see they are peddling the same hatred that brought the Holocaust to the Jews.

  4. Sorry, the conspiracy theorists are saying it is August 22nd that the Shi’ites will usher in the “Hidden Mehdi.”

    Dont want to disappoint all of the right wing anti-semite/anti-Muslim conspiracy theorists.
