It isn't because "they hate freedom", as our President has often said.

Hesperophobia

Probably the most illustrative and convincing argument as to why apparently so many people around the world have such a loathing for western civilization, America in particular... Hurt ethnic pride.

I never really accepted that they were jealous of our freedom, it never made sense.

Good find. This idea does make sense.

I have always thought that it was jealousy. They hate it that we live a modern, civilized life, while they live in mudhuts and fight amongst themselves.

I have always thought that it was irrelevant why they hated us, or maybe it's because THEY are irrelevant.

They hate us because economically and militarily, we sport the donkey schlongs.

I read that South Pacific islanders (which ones specifically, I forget) enthusiastically took to Christianity because any god that would hook his believers up with the stuff white people had had to be a good one. Pretty rational thinking there.

The question is- "what can I do today to make them hate me more?"

Interesting article. It's sad that many of THESE poeple are currently living in the U.S. today. For as much as they hate us they are sure willing to come here and attend our universities or just sponge off of our system. An even bigger same is that many of our own seem to hate the U.S. almost as much as THEY and are just as willing to drain on our nations resources.

Wonderful article! They aren`t listening, but sadly too little of us are either. "Celebrities and gadgets" as he says, fill our thoughts, while they toil and plot our demise. We know what they want, and what they are about, we keep throwing caution and common sense to the wind making it easier for them. I think it`s going to get really bad someday.
