Do Muslims-outside the US-hate American people? the answer is no. do the muslims hate the US government? Yes.
Are confused with this statement? if you do, let me explain:
The west and particularly the Americans are nice people; they are educated and therefore civilized, well-behaved, and broad-minded (well, majority of them).
many muslims who went abroad to several western countries were so impressive with the way of life of the westerners. many muslims intellectuals who went there also admire the westerners. syed muhammad abduh, for example, the twentieth century islamic reformer and thinker, famously said that “the west is much more “islamic” than the Muslim”. it means, the west way of life and thinking are more closer than what the muslims are.
abduh elaborate: the west is more helping people, the city and towns are cleaner, the education is higher, the discipline is more followed, the hard-work is more known. all compared to the muslims people in muslims countries.
so, guys who read my brief comments on anti-americanism should not misunderstand what i mean; and should be able to separate between anti-americanism (which means anti-america’s foreign policy) and anti-american people.
and please remember, when im saying the muslims, it stand for the majority of muslims. not the fanatics. the fanatics either in muslim or in the west (christian) are certainly not the creatures to be counted for.
