Avoiding A Clash of Civilizations

July 28, 2006 § 1 Comment

Maybe there is something to Samuel P. Huntington’s theory?

“People in the West, too, have a similar view of the Arab and Muslim Middle East. Westerners are asking, ‘Why do they hate us?’ But Arabs in the Middle East do not hate us for our freedoms, as many US officials have repeatedly claimed. They hate our foreign policy, which too often involves using military force against them or supporting authoritarian Arab regimes that use force against their own populations. According to a 2004 University of Maryland/Zogby International poll, a majority of Arabs look to foreign policy when shaping their views of the US.” (S. Al-Jadda, alt.muslim)
