It really is funny that countries like France whose wartime flag is a white cross on a white background disparage us.

America isn't hated because it's powerful, it's hated because of how it uses it's power. Israel a country that likes America?? Try "Israel owes it's existance to America", and U.S. biased unconditial support to it.
