Israel has been the victim of Hezbullah and Hamas for decades.
The world community has labled these organizations as terrorist groups. Israel has a right to defend herself, just as the United States has a right to defend herself. Your assumption that the otherside sees the U.S and Israel as terrorists is just your opinion. I have personal experiences in some of the other places that you may be speaking of, and you assesment is completely wrong. Most peoples from other countries actually like the United States, and millions of people from around the world would love to live here and be American. What you assume is the opinion of others, is propaganda manufactured by the cowardly, murderous leaders of radical terrorist groups. The opinion by some people in the United States, that we are terrorists is really just ignorance of the world in which they live. The world of Ipods, cell phones and American Idol. People that believe fictional characters, such as Homer Simpson actually have an impact on our society. People that believe that living in a gated community will keep them safe from crime. People that live in a fantasy world. There are people that don't believe 9/11 happened, just as there are people that don't believe the holacaust happened. Why is it that we were attacked, and when we decide to go after the perps, we are called terrorists? Don't people know that we are a country that believes in liberty and justice. would Americans rather we invite the terrorist armies to the United States so that we can deliver the justice on our soil? Believing that we ourselves are terrorists is a very low opinion to hold. There is nothing worse than having a low opinion of yourself.
