The MidEast is especially prone to conspiracy theories ; gives them an excuse to not be introspective and admit to their faults.

There is also plenty of people who will chastise the US for its foreign policy. Even conservatives (in general) wouldn't support blatant racism and sectarianism , which is why Trump came in for a lot of heat from even conservatives for his soft criticism of the recent march.
