A lot of it stems back to WWII for two main reasons- 1-The US backing the Balfour Declaration and supporting Israel after the atrocities of the holocaust. The problem here is that while the "special relationship" between the US and Israel began innocently enough as a form of reparations to a people who had just suffered unspeakable tragedies, it resulted in tragedy for another people entirely. Although the Palestinian Mandate was technically a British territory post WWI (taken from the former Ottoman Empire) there WAS already an existing Arab population in that region. Much of the world and the North Africa/Southwest Asia region in particular resent our military and economic support for the Israelis. If the United States withdrew its support for Israel today you could safely assume that there would be a joint attack from many Arab nations in Israel by tomorrow and the Palestinians would probably take back their post WWII territory within a week.
Their government is destroying us and itself bit by bit. Look at their stocks! They owe trillions and their losing hundreds of billions of dollars based on their mistakes and whatever they've got put up their sleeve. In my opinion all government agents are worse than cons.

Not all of the world hate Americans, and if there are people hating America then not for it's people but for it's government or policy. I was in many discussions with different Arabic people and I may transfer to you why they don't like the USA policy; 1) It interferes in anything ! 2) It loves controlling over other countries, specially poor countries from the 3rd world as they call. 3) Helping Israel in killing people/children in Palestine. 4) What is happening in Iraq
And a certain reason for me (I am not hating - I am just saying); They helped the Muslims Brotherhood in taking control and taking presidency in Egypt after the last revolution..It is a disaster that we are going to suffer from !!
Because we have so many rights that they don't. The US is one of the few country's that has freedom of religion. We can have as many children as we want and no one is forcing us to work for $5 a day. Its just one of the better country's(: I am Proud to be an American!
You mean besides the fact that we blew up our own building to stage a military coup for oil? We now have scientifically verified evidence and published scholarly articles that express how the planes could not have dropped the towers and that excess amounts of nanothermite were found and indefinitely used to blow the twin towers and drop them to the ground.
Listen to the answers of the foreigners. Gilman in a sense you're right. They don't like us because our government sticks its nose in their business; which it does because the elite monopolizes politics; which it can because of the undemocratic structure established by the constitution.
