Actually I think you will find what Robin Cook actually said was this
“Bin Laden was, though, a product of a monumental miscalculation by western security agencies. Throughout the 80s he was armed by the CIA and funded by the Saudis to wage jihad against the Russian occupation of Afghanistan. Al-Qaida, literally "the database", was originally the computer file of the thousands of mujahideen who were recruited and trained with help from the CIA to defeat the Russians. Inexplicably, and with disastrous consequences, it never appears to have occurred to Washington that once Russia was out of the way, Bin Laden's organisation would turn its attention to the west.”

The true reason why so many muslim coutries hate America and other western countries is because America and the West live a better life and are more prosperous and successful.
THAT IS THE ONLY REASON.
The reason why they hate Israel is the same reason. Their dictators have to blame someone for their crappy economies and lower level living, everyone needs someone to blame for the failures, and America, being the #1 country in the world gets that benefit.
Muslims kill each other off in record numbers all the time........ Do you really think they get mad when other countries kills them any more than themselves killing each other?
To think that America is the fault of all bad things going on is ignorant, our leaders merely took advantage of weak muslim leaders......... then they turn around and blame every thing on America.
Who's the real fool? If Muslim people revolted against their crap government and demanded to do what's best for the people, then the people could only blame themselves..... and not other countries who are doing better, more exact... the #1 country, America.
