In the off chance that any of you, or any of the people reading this thread that agree with you, genuinely believed that the Middle East hates us because of free speech, freedom of religion, we're infidels, we're free, we let women drive etc. etc...
The reason the Muslim world hates us is driven by our policies in the Middle East. That's why they hate us. If any of you genuinely knew this already, my apologies -- I just hear a casual dismissal of that hate as "it's just Muslims being Muslims" as if being Muslim came with a built-in disdain of America.
Some of those policies are defensible, such as our support of Israel.
But a lot of it comes from policy that literally rains death from above.
I view the Muslim world for what it is. It is a shit stain on the world. Simple minded idiots who demand the rest of the world follows their beliefs. They hate us and will continue to hate us unless we follow their beliefs~
The person who is certain, and who claims divine warrant for his certainty, belongs now to the infancy of our species. Hitch~
