All of these issues contribute in some way to the proliferation of anti-Arab racism because they construe the Arab World as crucial to the wellbeing of the United States and usually conclude that the Arab World is a detriment to American progress.

Is not the torture of civilians across Latin America a form of terrorism? Or the unnecessary invasion of Panama in 1989 in which 3,000 civilians were murdered and thousands more dispossessed? Or the sanctions on Iraq throughout the 1990s that, according to many observers, resulted in the deaths of half a million Iraqi children? These actions aren’t terrorism if they are voraciously rationalized as the good work of a nation interested only in liberating others from their barbarity. In contrast, the culture of the barbarians needing liberation is necessarily terroristic if the rationalization for torture and intervention is to succeed.
