Here's an article from USA Today interviewing a terrorism expert in the CIA:
Basically, he says that Al Qaeda is attacking the US because of specific policies in the Middle East, not because of our culture. It is rather egocentric to assume a group of people want to kill us because of who we are. It does make more sense that they hate what we are doing to them.
The specific policies mentioned are:
"Support for Israel that allows the Israelis to dominate the Palestinians.
U.S., Western troops on the Arabian Peninsula.
Occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Support for Russia, India and China against the Muslim militants there.
Pressure on Arab energy producers to keep oil prices low.
U.S. support for corrupt Muslim governments.
