Do you think children in the Middle East are being taught to hate America?

  • They are not being taught. They are being influenced.

    They aren't and will not directly need to be taught to hate American culture in public forms of education, like public schools. However, there is a strong and general dislike built into their society because of the American influence in their region due to of all the negative effects we have had on their public. Aside from the global and economic affects, there are the personal and human affects to the surrounding areas because our fighters and weaponry are destroying their towns and killing their people.

    They dont HAVE to be taught that Americans are evil. America presents itself as so and their society just responds to it.

    While yes there were governmental tensions between the nations after WWII, but its been our actions in response to those tensions (about being more readily involved in their problems then, lets say, more coastal African countries) and the humanitarian affect its had on their people that have caused their general hatred to America.

  • yes, it is culturally embedded.

    If you look at the indoctrination of American children against Russia in the midst of the cold war, a generation grew up that was very weary of them. For middle eastern children, America is very active int he wars that are going on. America is also the target of many religious teachings and sermons. so not only are these children growing up hearing how evil America is, they are seeing and dealing with the repercussions of horrible foreign policy.

  • They are raised in jihad.

    Yes, I think that children in the Middle East are being raised to hate America, because it is what they are taught from the very beginning. Even children who are very young are given guns and taught to be soldiers. This is the only way they could be so extreme by their 20s.

  • Children Learn Hate

    Children will learn from their teachers, whether they are their parents, religious leaders, political leaders or actual teachers, and one thing that they will learn to do is either love or hate people or things. There is no doubt that children in the Middle East are being taught to hate Americans, but it must also go that some are not being taught to hate, just as it is understood that there are children in the United States that are being taught to hate people in the Middle East, and some are not being taught to hate.

  • No children in the Middle Eastern countries are not being taught to hate America.

    Children in the Middle Eastern Region (MER) are not being taught to hate America. The reality being that in the MER educational systems do not encourage independent thinking or the development cognitive problem-solving reasoning skills. Rather children are encouraged to memorize the answers to a limited number of problems in order to pass one assessment exam after another. Teaching their children to hate American would be a step up in their education process.
