    No.

    Might have something to do with the West being mostly Christian.

    Moderate muslims want us to convert by choice & radical extremist muslims want us to convert by force.

    They want the whole world to live under Allah, instil backward sharia law, take away womens rights & drag us all straight back to the Dark Ages.

    israel is nothing.

    First of all, most Muslims do not hate America! There are many, many American citizens who hold the the Muslim religion. It is the extremists who hate America; exactly like the extremists our country who hate any country who's population is mainly Muslim. Israel has little to do with it--except for the extremists.

    If this question was asked in court -- the person who worded it would be thrown out of court.

    It is a leading question -- which pre-supposes something that is not true. Israel, Muslims and America

    are all independent of each other. At times -- like any other event they can be put together. You can

    replace the small state of "Israel" by the name of any other nation and see if it fits the mind and/or

    the response that people want to give. In conclusion, No is the answer and no is the notion that

    people "hate" america...in fact -- most people in the world dream about making it to america...

    Hope it helps.

    They are jealous of our wealth, power, and civil liberties. They can't stand it that they are no longer the center of trade or commerce. They can't stand it that without the oil, they would be less than nothing to every other nation of the world. South American countries would be more influential politically. Seeing women and girls happy, free, and self-possessed scares and outrages them. They want our fertile lands, our prestige, and our military firepower--but they can't have any of it and that drives them crazy. Do you realize how lush and well-off America is compared to any Middle Eastern country or any mostly Islamic country? They hear about the greatness of their past empires and feel cheated to have fallen so far so fast on the world's stage. Our people are well-educated and hopeful: they can't stand this either.

    You can disagree with me if you want, but I know that primary emotions often guide human ideas and actions. Fear and jealousy are very potent motivators for all humans, including Muslims.

    Not at all. And also, it's a good habit to adopt to not use the general term of "Muslims". In fact, most Muslims are very peaceful human beings who abide by the Qur'an, which is in fact a very peaceful book. The radicalists of the Islam religion, who you are referring to, hate all of Western society (as in modern people). The reason they hate Israel is because Israel is a Jewish state, and holds Jerusalem which they believe should be entirely theirs. Their reason for hating Western culture is because they do not act exactly as Radical Islam dictates they should, nor do they support them in hating Israel.

    No. The ones who hate america are the ones who do not like their countries being bombed and their children killed by americans.

    I don''t know why more americans do not connect the events. It is not because they are moslems. It is because their people are being killed by americans.

    Americas support for Israel is certainly a leading factor but not the only one. Continuing military action against Muslim countries certainly doesn't assist a change of attitude either.
