Why terrorists are attacking us.

It is outrageous to push the idea that terrorists attack us because we don't "see it their way" They attack us because they don't like to be on the receiving end of what are objectively unjust policies. All the evidence shows that it is specific foreign polices that they are reacting to.

On page 147 of the 9/11 Commission Report, it says "By his own account, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's animus toward the United States stemmed not from his experiences there as a student , but rather from his violent disagreement with U.S. foreign policy favoring Israel. " The Gorilla in the Room is US Support for Israel.

Ramzi Yousef was motivated to attack the US because of US support of Israel : He had no other motivation, no other issue. The FBI questioned Ramzi Yousef about his motivations for bombing the World Trade Center in 1993.

"Yousef said he took no thrill from killing American citizens and felt guilty about the civilian deaths he had caused. But his conscience was overridden by *his desire to stop the killing of Arabs by Israeli troops.*" "Yousef said he "would like it to be different," but only terrible violence could force this kind of abrupt political change. He said that he truly believed his actions had been rational and logical in pursuit of a change in U.S. policy toward Israel.He mentioned no other motivation during the flight and no other issue in American foreign policy that concerned him." Steve Coll, Ghost Wars p273

And U.S. policy makers were backing the most extreme elements in the Middle East the same time helping to kill off Middle Easterners striving for progress. Supporting fundamentalists, the CIA was shipping Korans and weapons, it was supporting people like Gulbuddin Hekmatyar who was known for throwing acid in the faces of women who refused to wear the veil, etc. The CIA supported the two coups that put the Ba'ath party into power in the first place. The CIA handed over lists of people to the Ba'ath party to be killed. Other details here: A Rogue State is Killing Hope In the Middle East Policy-makers working for the U.S. have installed brutal regimes and they have killed off people who opposed such oppressive regimes

The U.S. and Saddam Hussien were partners in war crimes using WMD which U.S. policy makers now hypocritically denounce.

As far as details about the wrongs of supporting Israel, check out these facts: Deceptions Sell Israel to the American Public: "It is still difficult for many to believe that a deception of such magnitude is possible."

And here are some details about the reality of Israeli crimes.
