My question is...Would those Muslims stop hating America if America were to completely reverse its current policies in the Middle East? Since you state that this is the cause of their hatred, then reversing those policies should lead to less, or no, Muslim hatred for America, correct?
The Middle East would likely still despise us for a generation or so, even if we took radical steps to reverse our policies there. Deep wounds heal, but they take time.
I think you'd eventually see a sharp drop in the Middle East's disapproval of the United States if that were the case. We simply offer the world too much, and our messages of democracy and self-determination are too attractive.
