Why Did They Hate Us in 1783?
Most on the Left say that Muslims hate us because of our "imperialistic" behavior in the Middle East. Many on the isolationist paleo-Right say that we provoked Islam's wrath because we left our own borders and meddled in foreign entanglements against the warnings of our founding fathers.
I ask both camps, what did we do to deserve Jihad in 1783?
