One more reason

12/03/2010

Since the tragedies of September 11th 2001, the question “Why do they hate us?” kept coming in the minds of Americans like never before. It is a very legitimate question. I cannot see how a person can hate a whole nation just because of the mistakes of a minority, though such minority consists of the leaders and the ones who are in control. On the other hand, it is somewhat difficult not to hate America. I won’t start talking about the unlimited support to Israel, Afghanistan or Iraq. Yet, when I look to the history of American policy in South America and Vietnam, it was never clean or ethical. It was always dirty business.

But even today, the US policy makers insist in touching the wrong buttons in the hearts of millions around the world, not only the Arabs or Muslims but many others who see the clear double standard and the injudicious support to Israel. When I read the speech of Vice President Joe Biden in Tel Aviv University, I wondered should not he feel ashamed and make his citizens feel so as well. Vice President Biden clearly repeated that he is a Zionist which was considered till 1991 by the UN General Assembly Resolution as a form of racism. He said that though the Israeli Government announced a day ahead of that speech that it will go ahead with a plan to build 1600 new settlements in the East Jerusalem. Is not that a spit on the face of the so called negotiations Mr. Biden was visiting the region to re-initiate? I think it was, yet Mr. Biden had the guts to go in public and reiterate what many other US politicians before him said which comes down to one thing; Israel can do whatever and American policy will be there to support it.

Such thing happens while the invasion of Iraq was based on absolute lies but so far neither Bush nor Blair admitted their mistake or paying any consequences for their actions and the human death toll resulted from the war on Iraq.

Then you wonder why?
