No wonder Americans keep asking, “Why do they hate us?”

Good stuff: The Oft-Asked Question: Why Do They Hate Us?
Arabs and Muslims admire America, like Americans and respect the Western culture. They enjoy American cuisine, American films, American music and American songs. They understand and appreciate American humor. They dislike the attitude of America toward Arabs and Muslims. They hate American policy in the Middle East. They are angry at what they consider an unjust attack on Islam, a lack of respect for the Qur’an and an assault on their deeply cherished values.

Arabs and Muslims want a Middle East free of weapons of mass destruction. They are angry that America threatens and punishes Arab and Muslim countries, which it suspects of developing nuclear weapons, while it turns a blind eye on the weapons of mass destruction and the large nuclear arsenal in non-Arab and non-Muslims countries in the region.

Sheesh. And to think that all this time I thought that they hated us because - "...They despise freedom."
