What is it about the West that extremists hate so much?
Why do extremists hate western culture? Is it the ugly Mcdonalds visual blandness, the cheap porn like media styles and the God is money ethic?
Those things you mention particularly the worship of money and what they see as low morality, but they also hate our interference in their lands and see us as terrorists who are out to take control of their countries and their resources. Wherever terrorism occurs there is always some reason given to justify it, and of course nothing could ever justify it.
As long as you have religious extremists, greed, those blinded by patriotism, and extreme levels of ignorance so pervasive in the world, terrorism and war is always going to happen and those who engage in it will always have a "reason" for this insanity. There will always be fear, hate and a lack of understanding to fuel it and sadly, I don't see the powers that be wanting an educated and peaceful populace in any nation, particularly the ones that profit the most off of war.
It's easier to control people mired in fear and hatred and at the end of the day, the leaders of countries, terrorists groups etc. all want to have control.
Well said, Christin. I think it all boils down to self-concern (Ego; the Buddhist, Christian, Kabbalist definition). All evil comes from this. Me vs you separation.
Altruistic love is the only answer.
Without Love a philosophy will fail. JC and others knew this and built it into their laws. Sociopaths try to ignore this principle to their peril.
It can be argued that even primitive man knew about Love.
I think it's the American and British corruption, the murder, the wholesale war for greed and the installation of docile puppets who abuse their citizens.
Some psychopathic elite in America were behind 9/11. This is no longer controversial for those who have the facts. 9/11 was an inside job. Layer upon layer of cover-up only shows that something was being covered up. Too many on Wall Street and in Washington benefited from 9/11. And the government's "conspiracy theory" is full of holes. Take WTC7, for instance. It was the 3rd building to collapse in seconds on 9/11. It fell at perfect free fall for the first 8 floors. Solid steel never offers zero resistance allowing perfect free fall. This means controlled demolition. This means inside job. This means the CIA knew about it, because their 2nd largest office outside of Langley was in WTC7.
What's not to hate. Now, the American government has given Americans plenty to hate -- NDAA 2012 with its indefinite detention clauses for Americans (without phone call, lawyer, trial), HR347 with its criminalization of free speech, and many more marks of tyranny against the new Evil Empire.
And Great Britain is no better.
There are good people in every country and they're all suffering. The psychopathic elite -- the owners of the central banks -- are making it worse for everyone.

People all over the world think that we Pakistanis are all terrorists. I beg to differ! I know that recently there have been quite a few terrorist activities around the world which were supposedly associated with Pakistan. Even if a few Pakistanis were associated with these activities, why is the...

The executive order Trump has issued effectively (and intentionally) bans Muslims, and prioritizes non Muslim refugees above Muslim refugees. I believe this is the best recruiting aid that extremists could have hoped for. It's more than anything they could ever have achieved themselves, and...
