In 2001, shortly after the unfortunate events of September the 11th , Harris Interactive conducted a poll on the reasons why people hate the US:
When asked to pick one "main reason why those who attacked us and their supporters hate the United States," the reasons given most often were "our democracy and freedom" (26%) and "our support for Israel" (22%). However, almost as many believe the main reason is "our values and way of life" (20%), and "our influence on the economy and lives of Middle Eastern countries" (17%). Only 11% believe our economic and military power is the main reason.
So over 50% of them live in lala land apparently.

So they decided to 1)block condemning Israel and 2) stopped an independent investigation by the UN. [Aljazeera]
Wonder how extreme would they be if we are still under the Bush era. So my final remark, congratulations for their stupidity, they did it again .... hurray ...
