Show 497 Debate- Dinesh D"Souza ENEMIES OF THE STATE: Why the U.S. Is Hated April 18, 2002.
Gore Vidal, Robert Higgs and Dinesh D’Souza debate.
In a 2002 Gallup poll conducted in ten Muslim nations, only 22 percent of the people questioned viewed the United States favorably. Why does the United States foster such hatred in the Islamic world in particular? Is it our foreign policy—our support of Israel and of repressive Arab regimes in the Middle East? Or is it our culture? Does globalization spread American values that are simply antithetical, thus disruptive, to the traditional Islamic view of society? Just what should we do to win this struggle for the hearts and minds of those who despise us around the world?
