48. They don't like us because of our interference
And our acting like they should live according to our interests.

Arguably if the US just minded it own business from the time of the Eisenhower Administration, the Islamic Revolutions wouldn't have happened. Most of the countries were getting more and more modern and liberal, within Islamic tradition. The Islamic backlash could be due in great part to the attempt to resist the U.S., etc., interfering.

Your last paragraph is right from the Republican playbook. The idea "they hate us" is, too.
