Projection of the terrorist narrative onto the bodies of Arabs, Muslims, Middle Easterns, and South Asians is a global phenomenon. Alarmingly, however, is terrorism and extremism not only interact; but they mimic one another. An examination of Countering Violence Extremism (CVE) programs illustrates how counter-terrorism measures reinforce the terrorist narrative of Muslims and Arabs as a terrorist. Therefore, I argue that the United States' targeting of Muslims and Arabs illustrates the prevailing notion of Muslims and Arabs as racialized others and security threats that escalated post-9/11.
