Les attentats de 1986 en France : un cas de violence transnationale et ses implications (Partie 1)

Abstract : The terrorist bombings that rocked France during 1985-1986 are not well known. The media and the politicians spoke of them at the time, but preferred not to refer to them later so as not to draw attention to their mistakes at the time. The author provides a detailed description of the events and the legal evidence implicating members of secret organisations on the basis of the court proceedings of the prosecution of Ali Fouad Saleh and his group, and numerous interviews with the officials concerned. In a second part, he evokes the different hypotheses concerning the participation of Hezbollah and the Iranians. Moreover, he presents an analysis that questions such views of terrorism as those based on " terror networks " or " indirect governmental strategies ". Rather he sees the causes in a transnational transfer of violence. This leads to a new transnational theory which should abandon the overtly simple concept of international terrorism.
