"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Arab media is pretty sure everyone (namely America) hates them. Right now the object of their derision is Condoleeza Rice.

Al-Khaleej newspaper in the United Arab Emirates said "Queen Condoleezza is behaving as if she was the brains running the world, as if she can change the world and, more precisely, the Muslim world."

"This old-fashioned queen is behaving as if she was superior to one billion Muslim people and as if she was capable of deciding the fate of the Muslim world: this is a rare case of arrogance and insolence," it said.

I didn't notice any questions of the scholars or newspapers asking 'why do they hate us?'.
