Why Anti-Americanism In The World?

Many Americans have been asking, "why do they hate us?" in referring to seemingly so much "anti-Americanism" around the world at the present time. The good news is that "anti-Americanism" isn't actually about the American people as people; it's a resentment of American imperialism, US economic and military power, and cultural influence, projected into other people's countries. But that natural emotional response that some people in other nations have is not something that began with, or is exclusive to, Americans (more good news).

The present-day label for it may be "anti-Americanism," but it has actually existed right through much of human history whenever a single nation reached an unmatched (for a time) peak of power and influence beyond its own borders. In ancient times it could have been known as "anti-Egyptianism" (see The Ancient Egyptians), or "anti-Assyrianism" (see Ancient Empires - Assyria), or "anti-Babylonianism" (see Ancient Empires - Babylon), or "anti-Persianism" (see Ancient Empires - Persia), or "anti-Greekism" (see Ancient Empires - Greece), or "anti-Romanism" (see Ancient Empires - Rome - and "Rome" isn't finished yet - see Daniel's Statue, and below). In more relatively-recent history, it could have been known as "anti-Britishism" - ironically, the United States was born as a result of the very same ancient human emotion that is today known as "anti-Americanism," that Americans themselves are now being subjected to by their "subjects" around the world.

The Coming Cure For "Anti-Americanism"

The World American power outside of its own borders, while at the present being the cause of anti-Americanism, will ironically, before long, be the cure for anti-Americanism in many places (including in Europe itself after their political creation turns on them, while across the Channel, Britain will be the first, or one of the first, to attempt to bail out of the EU). Nations that are today protesting "Americans get out!" will be pleading "Americans come help!" because there is rising up on the world stage a plainly-prophesied "beast," in Europe (the USA is not the prophesied "beast") that will not have the moral restraint with its military power that the United States has consistently shown, even after the horrendously evil September 11 terrorist attacks upon New York and Washington - the United States did not somehow "deserve it" as some people, in some places in the world, have been wickedly suggesting. Most Americans are good, decent, peace-loving people who do not deserve to be hurt or hated by anyone, and I say that without bias or favoritism because I am not an American.

The final leader of the European beast power will have not only a nation that is at least evenly matched with the United States in terms of population, economic output and military power (it's all already there, it's only awaiting the final political union that is now obviously inevitable - see Ein Volk! Ein Reich! Ein Euro!), but will, as the Scriptures plainly state, actually have the evil-miraculous power of Satan added to it, thereby making it, for about 3½ years, very-nearly undefeatable. And, because so much of the beast's power will be based on spectacular religious deception (including many false "miracles" from Rome), a great many Americans themselves, thinking that their salvation is at stake, will follow the beast and persecute those who don't:

"the whole earth followed the beast with wonder. Men worshiped the dragon [i.e. Satan], for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?"

"And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months; it opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming His Name and His dwelling, that is, those who dwell in heaven. Also it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. And authority was given it over every tribe and people and tongue and nation, and all who dwell on earth will worship it, every one whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb that was slain. If any one has an ear, let him hear: If any one is to be taken captive, to captivity he goes; if any one slays with the sword, with the sword must he be slain. Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints." (Revelation 13:3-10 RSV)

"And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom [see The Return Of Jesus Christ] which shall never be destroyed, nor shall its sovereignty be left to another people. It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand for ever" (Daniel 2:44 RSV)
