WHY DO THEY HATE US?
Islamics hate us because we have not submitted to Islam.

Islamic scholarship divides the world in two:
1) The House of Islam (dar al-Islam): nations submitted to Islamic rule.
2) The House of War (dar al-harb): nations that have not submitted to Islam,
so it is incumbent on dar al-Islam to make war upon dar al-harb
until all nations submit to the will of Allah and accept Sharia law!
