lack of sympathy

""the very policies that Americans constantly justify by spouting the Terrorism slogan are exactly what causes anti-American hatred and anti-American Terrorism in the first place. The most basic understanding of human nature renders that self-evident, but this polling data indisputably confirms it." "Put another way, it is precisely those people who support US aggression by invoking the fear-mongering The Terrorists! cliché who do the most to ensure that this threat is maintained and inexorably worsens. And, as Wright says, it is only a complete lack of empathy for other people's perspectives that can explain this failure to make that connection.""
