America is hated and attacked because Muslims believe they know precisely what the United States is doing in the Islamic world. They know partly because of Osama bin Laden's words, partly because of satellite television, but mostly because of the tangible reality of U.S. policies. We are at war with an al Qaeda-led, worldwide Islamic insurgency to defend those policies -- and not, as President Bush mistakenly has said, "to defend freedom and all that is good and just in the world."
Keep in mind how easy it is for Muslims to hate the six U.S. policies bin Laden repeatedly refers to as anti-Muslim:
U.S. support for Israel that keeps Palestinians in the Israelis' thrall.U.S. and other Western troops on the Arabian Peninsula.U.S. occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan.U.S. support for Russia, India and China against their Muslim militants.U.S. pressure on Arab energy producers to keep oil prices low.U.S. support for apostate, corrupt and tyrannical Muslim governments.
Three step plan:
1. Steal underpants.
3. World domination.
