Reader comment on item: "Death to America"
in response to reader comment: Arabs, Muslims all hate America even if they don't say it

After reading Sheik Ahmad Yaseim's post about America, I feel nothing more than sorry for him. I'm sorry that your country is a battleground of hate and politics, while in my country (USA, USA, USA), we do not always have to worry about explosions, suicide bombers, and so on and instead we can read about hollywood ongoings such as Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt breaking up, which not all of us do.

People with a mindset such as yours, deeply rooted in hate, only leads to horrific acts and breeds hate further. As for your hatred toward Israel and the American support they have, how unfortunate you feel that way. Here's an American quote for you, "sh** happens." Israel is not only important to you or to the Jews. It is important to millions of other people. You have no more right to it than anyone else. God/Allah/Yahweh created the earth.....not you. Are you comparing yourself to the KKK community you mentioned when you said "it's like putting a black family in a KKK community," when you talked about Israel's establishment? That's very brave of you to admit. I suppose I should not even begin to discuss the Iraq war with you. You'll see in time.

America has not always made the best choices. But you and your country can relate to that, right? You will not see a group of Americans hijacking a plane in another country out of hate. You will not see a group of American people plot the deaths of thousands in the name of God. That has been taken care of by Osama Bin Laden and Hitler.
