“help me to help you to help everyone.”

The increasingly anti-American tone heard through out the Arab world is not a reaction to U.S. or Israeli military mistakes. It is not a reaction to their inability to grant an immediate solution to the crisis. Rather, military mistakes and civilian casualties have been exploited by the media thereby enabling the Arab world to reveal their anti-American tones. Their minds are not being changed by the current events, rather they feel that the increasing civilian bloodshed grants them the right to reveal their inner hatreds for the U.S. The world is being suckered to think that current U.S. and Israeli policy is losing Arab support and gaining Arab resentment. This is not the case, they are simply more loudly vocal with these stagnant viewpoints. It does not matter that Hezbollah shields themselves with innocent Lebanese, for Hezbollah couldn’t possibly be the aggressor. In their hate filled and ignorant minds the only possible cause for the bloodshed is the U.S. and Israel. This is all the more reason that we must ignore their criticism, for it is not rational. When dealing with irrational, hateful zealots you can not take their opinions seriously. They are incapable of recognizing that it is better for them to have the Lebanese army in control rather than a terrorist militia. They should be thankful that Israel is cleaning up their mess, a mess which they allowed to grow and a mess which does no good for the Lebanese people. The Arab world is twisting this conflict to pretend that Hezbollah provides Lebanon with a force to resist the (non-existent) U.S. / Israeli imperialism. They say that Hezbollah are the defenders from the countries that the Arab street already hates to the maximum degree. It is not proper to pretend that the Arab street has any capacity to change their mind. They are simply incapable of recognizing that America’s intentions are two fold: one to protect the American people at home and abroad, and two to democratize the Arab world in hopes that it will bring economic growth and peaceful prosperity.

There are several problems with this thinking.
One, the Arab world will not change their minds about American unless they have a reason to do so, that being a better quality of life on an individual basis and an understanding that there actually is a better quality of life with help from American help. This is a catch 22 since America is incapable of helping them with out facing combatance from a people who won’t be able to recognize that they are helping them until after the battle. An analogy to this would be a crying baby being immunized after birth. This baby has no capacity to appreciate the painful medicine which the doctor is giving him. Only later, once the baby grows up into a person can it appreciate that it has survived in a world with immunity from terrible diseases.
Two, the Arab world in its present state has very little if not any capacity for a democracy with out hate. When you give the Palestinians a democracy they democratically elect Hamas, a terrorist organization, to the throne. This substantiates their unwavering hate. Additionally, when you Iraq a democratic leadership, they are quick to incite all Arabs against the “embassies which have supported the current assault on Lebanon”. This shows that they are trying to bite the hand which feeds them. They are incapable of thankfully accepting our dire sacrifices in our efforts to improve their way of life.
Overall, there is a saying that goes. “help me to help you to help us.” The Arab world that we live with today is virtually incapable to negotiating on their own free will for the betterment of all sides. They are a hateful and violent breed who has no desire nor capacity to accept help from the west. Some say that we should not offer help to those who are unwilling to accept it. These people are ignorant to the fact that the number one threat to world stability stems from their un-cooperation. The hatred that brews among the Arab populations does not have limitations within their borders. They have taken it upon themselves to not only grow and harbor international terrorists but also to popularly support their violent actions throughout the world.
