Why do Arab terrorists hate us? One reason I've heard is that the United States sponsors various unsavory regimes, thus motivating its inhabitants to lash out at us.

Well ... suppose you had heard that someone committed a murder because they hated the victim. Or were jealous of him. Or had a marital dispute with the victim. All those reasons would be believable.

But what if someone told you that he killed a man because he hated his neighbor -- and the man he killed was his employer?

Would that be believable?
