6. I did not blame 9/11 on Bush at all
I said the Arab world did not love us before he got into office, and yes planning for that attack was going on for years before probably. Our foreign aid to Israel has gone on since the 1940s, and since 1985 has grown incredibly, directly fueling the repression and occupation of Muslims in Gaza and the West Bank. Any who fight Israel forces equipped with US-bought weapons are not all that happy with the United States' role in the middle-east, and rightfully so.

Bush did extend more aid to Israel than any past president, and I don't think there are any in his administration who would disagree with the fact that he was the most Pro-Israel president to this point. He also lessened restrictions on that aid, significantly increasing the aid designed for military expenditures up to the point in 2008 that all of the US Foreign Assistance given to Israel was for military purposes. I would count that as exacerbating.
