Why Arabs don't like the U.S.
CNN ^ | Thu July 11, 2013 | Aaron David Miller

(CNN) -- The battering that the U.S. image is taking in Egypt these days reflects that the sources of anger against America in the Middle East run deep. We're not the primary reason the Middle East is so screwed up. The Arabs themselves need to own up to that. Just take a look at Syria and Egypt.

But we are still a big part of the story. Some extremist Muslims hammer us because they don't like Western values; others see the conspiratorial hand of America everywhere -- sucking the life out of Arab and Muslim independence, pride and dignity.

But once you get away from the fringes, what you find is equally disturbing: Millions of Arabs and Muslims don't like us not because of who we are but because of what we do. It's our policies.

They are on to something here. There is not a half-baked, wingnut, totally implausible conspiracy theory that Arabs won’t swallow hook, line and sinker.

WHAT? I always thought is was George Bush’s fault. I was also told that Obama would makes things a lot better. He understood the Muslims.

No need to read another book. The Bible already tells us what is up...

The tribe of Ishmael will always hate the tribe of Isaac

The author should consider why the Arabs don’t like CNN.

Did he not see the anti-CNN signs in Tahrir Square?

Marrying 12 year old girls and beating them at will is not something they want to negotiate.

PERIOD

Correct answer:

Western Civilization refutes Islam.

Without us, they couldn't build a transistor radio.

Why Arabs don't like the U.S.

Arabs hate themselves and pretty much everything. The only way to win the game is not to play.

Like I care.

There's something wrong when Arabs aren't more worried about why we don't like Arab countries.

No, this report can't possibly be right.

The great 0bama apologized for our sins and repented.

The Arabs now love us. To death.

Just like the great 0bama said they would.
