Why there is a hatred for America?


By Nick Bibile


Why is it that there is a general hatred toward United States of America from the other countries? We see American flags are trampled and burned. This hatred toward the United States has escalated today as we are in the brink of a war against Saddam Hussein. Gary Smith, executive director of the American Academy, a nonprofit institute of advanced studies in Berlin said, People impute the worst possible motives for American behavior. The arguments Im hearing sometimes are beyond logic, beyond reason. I believe he is true; there is a general hatred toward the United States without any reasonable logic. 911 was a clear example. We saw some radicals celebrating the 911 and generally most others condoned the act and were sympathy with the United States but that sympathy did not last long.


French author Thierry Meyssan wrote the book called The Big Lie, claimed the Sept. 11 attacks were carried out not by al Qaeda, but by the U.S. government. The book sold 100,000 copies in 10 days, according to its publisher, Patrick Pasin of Carnot books, and has sold more than 500,000 copies in France and in other European Countries and now Barnes and Nobles is advertising this book here in America and many ignorant Americans are buying this story too.


If people hate America why do they come to the United States? People who hate America are standing in line of the U.S Embassies to get a visa to come to here; they are longing to come to the U.S. Isnt that interesting? What is it that United States has and others do not have? Freedom and democracy!


The following is a quotation from declaration of independence, We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government.



It is America that has produced some great minds; students come from all over the world to the United States to get a better education as America has some of the best Universities of the world. The United States hosts more international students than any other country in the world, a number fast approaching 600,000 per year. They leave homes, families and friends in order to pursue their dreams in the United States. Following are some statistics from the Institute of International Education.

Asian students comprise over one-half (54%) of all international enrollment (280,146).
Europe (78,485)
Latin and South America (62,098)
Middle East (34,897)
Africa (30,292)
North America (24,128)

When they graduate and go home they produce great service to their fellow citizens. Let us see some students who came to the U.S.

Egypt, Boutros Boutros-Ghali, UN Secretary General.

Melting Pot of the World.

God has blessed this nation with natural resources of wealth, freedom and democracy. Although people hate this blessed nation amazingly many are longing to come here. One in 10 U.S. residents were born abroad. The United States still admits 800,000 immigrants a year, more than any other nation in the world. Yes, they leave their homeland; friends and relatives to come here, yet how can there be such hatred toward America?


Christianity and United States.

America has built churches and the send missionaries to all over the world; many Christian organizations are helping the poor countries of the world. President Bush has proposed increasing foreign aid by $10 billion between 2004 and 2006. Whenever there is a disaster in the world America is always there to help.


Why is it that people in other parts of the world hate America? Not because what America is doing but because we are Americans. America does good to others, allow students to come and study in the greatest Universities, give the foreigners freedom, help the poor countries. But yet they hate America as they think America is a Christian country. The root cause of hatred is what America believes.


America had it roots in Christianity. When protestant Christians were persecuted in England, puritans landed in America. Puritans built schools like Harvard. Christianity influenced the constitution of the United States.


In the Supreme Court Building, it displays the 10 Commandments.

Presidential Inauguration Swearing in Pledge ends with, so help me God.

When you enter the United Stated Library of Congress, you will see the words, in God we trust.

You will see the scripture, preserve me O God, in thee do I put my trust. (Ps 16:1) in United States Congressional Capital Building.


July 12, 1804, President Alexander Hamilton's dying words were "I have a tender reliance on the mercy of the Almighty; through the merits of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am a sinner. I look to Him for mercy; pray for me."


June 1779, a prayer by General George Washington

And now, Almighty Father, if it is Thy holy will that we shall obtain a place and name among the nations of the earth, grant that we may be enabled to show our gratitude for Thy goodness by our endeavors to fear and obey Thee. Bless us with Thy wisdom in our counsels, success in battle, and let our victories be tempered with humanity. Endow, also, our enemies with enlightened minds, that they become sensible of their injustice, and willing to restore our liberty and peace. Grant the petition of Thy servant, for the sake of Him whom Thou hast called Thy beloved Son; nevertheless, not my will, but Thine be done.

Today we see a different America, America is not a Christian nation anymore; it is a post Christian nation. America has forgotten her roots, forsaken God, and turned to idols. Hollywood stars and celebrities are the idols of America. Forsaken the word of God.

1Sa 8:8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.

As a result America has become a haven for other religious cults. Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and other religions are growing in America and many have forsaken the true living God and turning to these religions.

1Ki 11:33 Because that they have forsaken me, and have worshipped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Milcom the god of the children of Ammon, and have not walked in my ways, to do that which is right in mine eyes, and to keep my statutes and my judgments, as did David his father.

Gods name is blasphemed among unbelievers as many so called ministers but truly false prophets are using the Bible for their own selfish gains.

2Pe 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privately shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingered not, and their damnation slumbered not.

September 11, 1777, [note the date] the Continental Congress approved that 20,000 copies of the Holy Bible be imported from other sources. A shortage of Bibles was caused by the interruption of trade with England during the Revolutionary War. A special congressional committee reported, "The use of the Bible is so universal and its importance so great that ... the Committee recommends that Congress will order the Committee of Commerce to import 20,000 Bibles from Holland, Scotland, or elsewhere, into different parts of the States of the Union."

On September 11, 2001, exactly 224 years later, America was attacked by the providence of God and thousands perished instantly. The great cities, which America built, were brought to ashes in minutes.

America is following the sins of Judah and this is what God said to Judah through the prophet Jeremiah.

Jer 5:15 Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from far, O house of Israel, saith the LORD: it is a mighty nation, it is an ancient nation, a nation whose language thou knowest not, neither understandest what they say.

16 Their quiver is as an open sepulchre, they are all mighty men.

17 And they shall eat up thine harvest, and thy bread, which thy sons and thy daughters should eat: they shall eat up thy flocks and thine herds: they shall eat up thy vines and thy fig trees: they shall impoverish thy fenced cities, wherein thou trustedst, with the sword.

In 1821, Daniel Webster defined the rules of longevity with "If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity."

Jer 11:3 And say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel; Cursed be the man that obeyeth not the words of this covenant,

4 Which I commanded your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, from the iron furnace, saying, Obey my voice, and do them, according to all which I command you: so shall ye be my people, and I will be your God.

America should repent, the ministers of the churches should go back to the purity of the Bible, we need to evangelize this post Christian nation or else the cults and other false Christian religions like the Jehovahs Witness and the Mormons will be doing what Christians ought to do. If America does repent of her sins, still the nations will hate for what she stands but we do not have to fear, as God is our fortress.

Ps 91:2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
