They Hate Us From The Bottom of Their Souls - Capitalists Couldn't Care Less

Capitalists, through their conglomerate owned commercial media cartel of TV networks, radio stations and newspapers, shrug off such intense statements as that from Ansar Abbasi, a well known and widely influential Pakistani journalist who, having politely introduced himself at the interview requested by US Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs, Judith McHale, spoke, "You should know that we hate all Americans. From the bottom of our souls, we hate you." McHale recounting her conversation with Abbasi: "He told me that we were no longer human beings because our goal was to eliminate other humans, that thousands of innocent people have been killed because we are trying to find Osama bin Laden."

Even less worthy of attention for America's wealthy rulers and their cadres was the pronouncement of Iran's Leader of Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, a day ahead of Obama's Cairo speech to Muslims, "Nations in the region hate the United States from the bottom of their hearts because they have seen violence, military intervention and discrimination (from that country)."

America's high-rolling bankers, military officials and their obedient government-office-holding politicians are likewise unruffled by the latest in an unending stream of suiciders, who, before making their supreme sacrifice, arrange to leave behind videos, letters, testimonials of feelings of dedicated rage toward Americans.

"Wife says CIA bomber hated the United States"
1/07 2010, Associated Press by Selcan Hacaoglu
ISTANBUL A Jordanian doctor-turned-suicide bomber who killed seven CIA employees at a base in Afghanistan is regarded by his family as a martyr in Islam's holy war against the United States, his wife said Thursday.

Covered in a black Islamic chador, Defne Bayrak, the Turkish wife of bomber Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi, lauded her husband's Dec. 30 attack to Turkish journalists in Istanbul.

"My husband did this against the U.S. invasion. He had so much hatred for the United States"

Al-Balawi came from a nomadic Bedouin clan from Tabuk, in western Saudi Arabia, which has branches in Jordan and the West Bank. He was born in Kuwait in 1977 to a middle-class family of nine other children, including an identical twin. He graduated with honors from a high school in Amman and studied medicine in Turkey.

Those governing for the American capitalist elite, though irritated by recent CIA losses, seem unfazed by the multiple nations involved in the life of this latest suicide attack. Corporate media continues to explain away Muslims fighting the United States and its NATO and other allies as just small groups of fanatics who want the world to convert to Islam.

But the other day, Ed Koch, former mayor of New York, and New York Congressman, a man widely considered to be intelligent, sought to up the ante for the antagonists. On video broadcast of Fox News' Your World interview with Neil Cavuto, "the vast majority of Muslims -- there are a billion, four hundred million -- are not terrorists, but there are hundreds of millions who are. They want to kill every Christian, every Jew, every Hindu who won't convert. And we ought to put it on the table."

(Whew! But apropos, this elderly writer has had the pleasure of passing quite a good amount of time in the company of Muslims in and from a dozen different nations and has never once been proselytized - something that cannot be said for more than a few pushy Christian passing acquaintances criticizing the beliefs of others, repeating invitations come to worship in their church, looking to gain personal benefit for having a hand in saving my soul from eternal damnation.)

In America, still the land of free speech, the mayor has a right to shout "fire', if not in a theater, then on an open mike with the TV camera rolling. And though exaggerating, Koch is still within the media and politician promoted explanation that those attacking have started the whole thing in the first place and are not reacting to anything the U.S. has been doing for years. However:

In CNN News 8/13/ 09, Christian Amanpour Reports: Generation Islam, during the Palestine segment after an Israeli bombing, Amanpour asked, "And when we're standing here, where your children were killed, how do you teach your surviving children, your friends, your family not to hate?" (For weeks viewers had heard the coming program advertised with Amanpour concerned looking and earnest voice, "How do you teach them not to hate."

It has become debatable whether or not al-Qaeda's austere and violent interpretation of Islam receives little public support in Islamic nations. What is clear is that U.S. extremely murderous foreign policies have always received great public support in the largely Christian U.S.

Immediately after 9/11, big media could not stifle the broad based question, "Why do they hate us?'

Though U.S. media made sure neither the answer given by al Qaeda nor Rev. Jeremiah Wright's "The chickens have come home to roost" sermon ever reached the men and women in the street, the preposterous "Because they are evil and hate freedom!" was heard loud and clear from President Bush II, installed the year before by the Supreme Court.

To this day, what viewers, listeners and readers never get is the text of messages from bin Laden and others detailing the conditions given under which the attacks would cease, i.e. why they are attacking and what would make them stop - namely withdrawing military presence from Muslim lands.

From the view point of an archival research historian, a major impediment to understanding anything at all is jumping in at some particular point in the flow of current events without much previous history in min: for example, seeing on TV the grieving families of the seven CIA agents killed by that Jordanian doctor suiciding himself as separate from the grieving widow and daughters of the Jordanian. With historical circumstances in consideration, we should have no difficulty in feeling compassion for all those grieving. There is the supposed universality of the Fifth Commandment, the misfortune of agents stationed in an Afghan population that never attacked America or anywhere else, and the declassified history of CIA assassinations, torture, and overthrowing elected governments that the Jordanian probably was riveted on.
