Why do they hate us?

I am referring to the Muslim extremists who we are currently fighting with all over the world. I have heard a number of different reasons for why they want to attack us but don't know what to think. Here are the ones I have heard, feel free to add any that I may have missed.

1. They hate us for our freedoms
2. They hate our secular and excessive lifestyle
3. They believe they must kill or convert all non Muslims
4. They hate Jews and are upset at our support of Israel
5. They hate our selfish and short-sighted foreign policy

What do you think is the reason and what brought you to that conclusion?

  • Perhaps it's because they're aware of how much American's hate them.

  • I know # 3 is true b/c a guy got up in my public speaking class and quoted it straight from the Koran....and then tried to defend it by saying "it will ALLL be ok if we would just convert to their religion."


    As for the rest everything we do, all of our freedoms go against what THEY read when they read the Koran. I don't think all Muslims believe that way.


    ( I think I spelled their holy book wrong, I am sorry if I offended.)

  • You never got the email with the naked muslim woman with crotch hair that went from her knee caps to her chin and then the comparison with the American woman playboy centerfold.
    That's why they hate us. It's all in the pubic hair grooming.

  • You should really stress that number 3 is ONLY RADICAL MUSLIMS. Not all Muslims feel even remotely close to this.

  • I 'll try and find those photos, her crotch hair looked like a rug and she still had her face all covered up with that thing they wear. Excellent beading I must say.

    Isn't it possible he was misinterpreting the book? Many have used the Bible to justify violence as well.
