The Six Primary Reasons for Why They Hate Us

In response to 9/11, on September 20, 2001, then President George W. Bush delivered a speech in which he deflected and trivialized the reasons for the grievances that many around the globe have regarding U.S. foreign policy. In his address to a joint session of Congress and the nation, in his attempt to answer America’s questions as to “Why do they hate us?”, he stated:
“They hate what they see right here in this chamber: a democratically elected government. Their leaders are self-appointed. They hate our freedoms: our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other.”


Now that most of us are well aware that the situation is a lot more complicated than they hate us because of “our freedoms”, let’s hear what some of those reasons are.

In the following House Homeland Security Committee meeting held on October 9, 2013, former CIA intelligence officer, Michael F. Scheuer, gives his top six reasons as to why they hate us (the answer begins at approximately the 7 minute mark):
  1. “Our support for tyranny for over 50 years in the Muslim world”…
  2. “As a trigger, our presence on the Arab peninsula”…
  3. “Third, I would put the Israelis, rising”…
  4. “Our ability for a long time to get oil at prices that were very much below the market level”…
  5. “Our military presence in other countries in the Muslim world”…
  6. “Our abiding willingness to identify as terrorist any Muslim population that one of our allies dislikes”…
