Al Jazeera and Bush's "Joke"

Yousri Fouda, in a transcript from Democracy Now, re: Bush having to be talked out of bombing Al Jazerrra:
..I just wonder, in light of what happened recently... how many people would have been recruited into the mindset of al-Qaeda because of something like this? I'm talking about mainstream Arabs and Muslims, and even decent human beings, wherever they come from, when they hear about something like this. So we have been hearing a lot about people in our part of the world, ‘They hate America and Americans.’ Well, they might do this, but they used to hate Americans for what they do, not for what they are. Now, with something like this, I wouldn't be surprised that Americans will be hated for what they are.
