Annotation: This article written by Professor Pervez Hoodbhoy asks the question why do so many Arabic people hate the United States and how can there possibly be a reconciliation? To find his answers Hoodbhoy discusses the history of the Muslim world and the need for change in both the Arab states and the U.S.
Excerpt: America has exacted blood revenge for the twin towers. A million Afghans have fled U.S. bombs into the cold wastelands and face starvation. B-52s have blown the Taliban to bits and changed Mullah Omar's roar of defiance into a pitiful squeak for surrender. Usama bin Laden is on the run (he may be dead by the time this article reaches the reader). But even as the champagne pops in the White House, America remains fearful for good reason
