some of the reasons they hate us that come to mind are...
1. u.s. foreign policy in general
2. israels treatment of palestinians and u.s. foreign policy of backing israel
3. u.s. bases in muslim countries

i'm sure there are more reasons including the fact that they might view some of our culture as hedonistic, drinking, drugs, scantily clad women, etc etc...

some people say we can't negotiate with terrorists but i think in a way we have to at least open up a dialogue with them, we can't just round them all up deport them, imprison or kill them, that would just create more terrorists.

in my opinion some of the root causes can be addressed and worked on but the fanatics that want to create sharia law and take over non muslim countries are going to be extremely difficult to deal with. it will take a lot of help from within the muslim communities to denounce that idealogy if we can ever live in peace. i realize the islamic terrorists or radicals however you want to call them are the minority but how can we trust muslims living in the western world knowing full well they could possibly be sleeper cells. unfortunately 1 bad apple can spoil the bunch.

so what are some fellow ats'ers ideas and opinions about why they hate us and what can be done to ease relations with the muslim world and stop terrorism?

They hate us because we do not live according to the rules and stricture of their religion. Our Western ideals and freedoms are antithetical in nature to their religious beliefs, and their religion is a theocratic system when practiced in certain sects which means that church and state are not separate entities and cannot be separated.

So while you can try to point the finger at those things you listed, they are merely symptoms of where the cultural faultiness lie between Shari'a Islam and Western Civilization. Even absent those things, there is friction. See the incident of the Barbary Pirates and study why it occurred to understand this. America hadn't even formed a foreign policy before there was friction between our nation and the Islamic world.

If we stopped creating the terrorists and funding them when it suits our needs, maybe then we would start to get along?

Everywhere you go, some people will be evil. They twist everything in their religion around to justify terrorism. There are evil people on both sides of the spectrum. You can't invade so many countries and cause so many problems and not expect a group like Isis to form. Would any american or Canadian stand idly by while their ways of life are destroyed? Dont think so..

This might have something to do with it. Invasion of Muslim countries.

How can anyone be trusted? It's not just moderate Muslims turning to extremism, there's all sorts of people converting to extremist Muslim beliefs...

Maybe regular peaceful Muslims are the least of our worries, maybe it's the white kid down the road that has decided to turn into an ISIL/ISIS sympathizer.

The use of drones in some countries isn't helping either.
Kids shouldn't have to grow up being afraid of clear skies.

These religious volunteers dont do much unless they are instructed to by their so called religious leader. That means these realious fanatic volunteers are not the cause of terrorism. They are just uneducated fools who volunteer to sacrifice their life on a lie. Just liek Our soldier are. Our soldier are made to sacrifice their life for lies as well.
Some of Our soldiers are even deeply religious. But we dont Call them terroris. No, we Call them herros for sacrificing their slives so that others dont have to.

Man this will stir up som dirt

Best and most correct answer right here.


The first countries to declare war on the newly formed United States were the Muslim Barbary States of North Africa....From 1783, until the Presidency of George Washington in 1789, the newborn Republic had no strong central authority, and that is when the Barbary pirates struck.

www.reformation.org...





In May 1786, Thomas Jefferson, then the U.S. ambassador to France, and John Adams, then the U.S. ambassador to Britain, met in London with Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the resident Tripolitan ambassador, to try to negotiate a peace treaty to protect the United States from the threat of Barbary piracy. These future U.S. presidents questioned the ambassador as to why his government was so hostile to the new American Republic even though America had done nothing to provoke any animosity of any sort. Ambassador Adja answered them, as they reported to the Continental Congress, "that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, whom it was the right and duty of the faithful to plunder and enslave; and that every muslim who was slain in this warfare was sure to go to paradise. He said, also, that the man who was the first to board a vessel had one slave over and above his share, and that when they sprang to the deck of an enemy's ship, every sailor held a dagger in each hand and a third in his mouth; which usually struck such terror into the foe that they cried out for quarter at once." (London, Victory in Tripoli, pp. 23-24).

You just compared religious converts to a nation's soldiers. Did I not just tell you that Shari'a Islam is a theocratic governmental system? That means they ARE soldiers. You just proved my point with your OWN comparison.

Because 'they' are told over and over to hate 'us'.

And 'we' are told over and over to hate 'them'.

I fail to see why refusing to pay an escalating tribute to the Barbary pirates, fueling a war (twice) has to do with this? Can you please shed some light on it for me?


Thanks!

Edit: It seems like good ol' fashioned greed to me.

Islamic terrorists spend most of their time and energy killing and terrorising their fellow Muslims, or in the case of Nigeria ,the local Christians. The hatred of the West is that we occasionally get in the way.

Both Sweden and Norway are members of NATOs Stayhbehind Groups Gladio. That means they are involved covertly.
