Why are the US and the Middle east enemies

Report as

To Muslims, the lifestyle that America lives is against God, and is an abomination. We allow blasphemy, adultery, p0rn, and "immodest" women, which is aberrant to them.

So America is an enemy of righteousness and God, to the jihad, so they commit acts of terror on the U.S. Obviously, we don't like them back....

Dont say Muslims next time please, it is wrong. Example: I am a Muslim, but I dont think about these things that you said about America, that doesnt bother me. This doesnt bother lots of people. There is a saying in my country; "Every sheep will be hang up from it's own feet in butcher".

About that Cihad, people understand that wrong in the Kur'an so... So because of that they have terrorist ideology... I am in a shame because of them.

And lastly, yes, because of that your country go to Iraq but mostly, because of Oil.

Of course these are my thoughts and I respect to yours too.

Of course, you are right, I should have specified extreme Islamic and terrorist groups (not all Muslims). Sorry about that, and doesn't Iraq receive money for the oil we get from there?
Report as
Yeah, but a small percentance of the money. The system is a little bit complicated as I know but in conclusion, it is like %10 of the money goes to Iraq. The other %90 goes to Oil Companies like Shell, Exxon e.t.c.

The easy answer is it's a Muslim / Christian thing but I don't think that's the case. You listen to the average, man-on-the-street type person and they have admiration and respect for Americans and Western life styles. I think it's a political control issue where the middle east religious fanatics who are using religion to control the population and politics to their advantage and see the West as potential influencers who will disrupt their power and position with the talk of democracy.

The simple answer is religion or rather the belief that one religion is a better religion over another. But keeping it simple it is all about religion; that and OIL.
I challenge you to read both the Koran and the Bible and come to a different observation.
