Yes I remember, Kuwaiti's cheering on the street and we were fighting alongside many arab countries. So we made an enemy with Iraq, but even Iran is an enemy of Iraq.
2. Remember Lebanan?
Reply: Yes that is directly related to Israel as was pointed out earlier.
3. Have you read any part of the Koran? there is a little tiny part that says DEATH TO THE INFIDELS. That includes Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Baptists, etc.
Thats completely boulderdash -- Christians and Jews are considered "People of the Book", people of Abraham in Islam, they are highly regarded not infidels like the media has told u. Even in the Crusdaes, when the muslims took back Jerusalem from the Christians they let the Christians and Jews continue to live in the country without any attacks on them. Anyone with even a little bit of Islamic knowledge can tell you Islam doesn't advocate the killing of civilians, only these crazy terrorists will tell you otherwise.
4. The US has been raping the middle east of resources, dictating policies and putting restrictions on such things as trade and military.
Do you know what the sentiment towards Americans is in many countries around the world and especial in those found in the middle east; they do not like us.
Reply: Most of the sentiment stems from American support of Israel with tons of Aid and advanced weaponry. I can assure you that by stopping to aid Israel 99% of America's enemy's in the middle east will end their hostility towards the USA. Before the creation of Israel in 1948, America had very close ties with the middle eastern arab countries.. just look in the history books.
