Two questions

Egypt’s Mubarak: Arabs Hate U.S. More Than Ever

Question #1 – When did they ever not hate us?

From a News Hour story on tourism in Egypt:

[Tour operator] AMR BADR: And I think Egypt has paid a tremendous price. We've lost billions of dollars as a result of the terrorist activities over the past seven or eight years. We've lost jobs. We've lost people. Trust me, Egyptians want to live. This is a very peaceful nation.

Question #2 – Whose fault is it that terrorism has crippled Egypt’s tourism economy?

I have other questions (esp. in response to that “peaceful nation” line) but I’ll stop right there.
