"Why do they hate us?" is a popular question asked by left-wingers in regards to why Muslim want to kill us; sadly, they never come up with the right answer. In my research into the subject I've found that the answer to the question is really quite simple, and has little to do with ecomonics, and everything to do with religion.
Douglas Farah has also researched the subject, and has a short article on his blog about the influence of Islam on terrorists. Here's an excerpt:
"As the Western world again debates the roots of Islamist attacks on Britain and the United States, the question often posed is "Why do they hate us?" The conventional wisdom is that alienated youth, suffering prejudice and unemployment, migrate to suicide bombings to help redress the grievious injuries suffered by uncaring European societies that offer them no way out. Also mentioned are the broader political issues of Palestine, Iraq and recently, Hezbollah."
