Alain Rodier. DR.

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: You are the author, among others, of “Grand angle sur le terrorisme” (Wide Angle on Terrorism) and “Grand angle sur la mafia” (Wide Angle on Mafia). In these two very relevant books, you analyze terrorism and mafias, which brings us back to the links between these two phenomena. One is talking more and more about hybrid terrorism related to serious criminality, what is your opinion on that?

Alain Rodier: The term « hybrid terrorism » emerged to highlight the links between terrorist movements and crime in general and organized in particular. A first phenomenon is well known: that of the petty criminals who enter into terrorism. Interest is then reciprocal. Different « losers » see it as a way of « fulfill oneself » by getting out of their criminal anonymity by espousing a cause that, in their vast majority, they do not know. What is amazing is that they are not only able to give their lives for this cause (like almost all active soldiers), but that their essential aim is martyrdom. Apart from Japanese suicide bombers, modern history knows no similar cases. The great question that is posed and which has not yet been answered satisfactorily is: why? Lire la suite »

Colonel Régis Chamagne: « NATO has become a tool at the service of US imperialism, itself at the service of the financial oligarchy’s project »

Colonel Régis Chamagne. DR.

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: You are talking about a plan for the destruction of nation-States, especially by breaking their armies. It is a terrible fact. Can you tell us about this project?

Col. Régis Chamagne: The objective of the financial oligarchy is to seize the riches of the world, and to achieve this, humanity must be enslaved. Thirty years ago, some 60 people owned 50 percent of the world’s wealth. At the time, the image used was that of a bus: we could fill a bus with those who owned 50 percent of the world’s wealth. Today, they are only eight people who own half the wealth of the world. Lire la suite »

Professor Abderrahmane Mebtoul. DR.

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: We are following your work for a long time. For the economist you are, does Algeria respect international commitments?

Prof. Abderrahmane Mebtoul: You are referring to the Association Agreement signed in full sovereignty on September 1, 2015. For Algeria, speaking through the Director-general of economic relations and international cooperation at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, it is not question of calling into question the general architecture, Europe having acceded to the Algerian demand and agreed to a partial revision of some articles allowing a win/win partnership while underlining for the European part, that the structural reforms for a diversified economy depend first of the Algerian government, in order to benefit from this agreement.

Saïd Bouteflika and Ali Haddad. DR.

It was not enough for them to destroy the country, to make of Algeria the laughing stock of the planet at every level, now the Mafiosi, Said Bouteflika, the brother of the Algerian president who leads Algeria by proxy and has taken the country hostage, his accomplice Ali Haddad and their clan of eunuchs, allow to send me threats for my writings via their minions. I announce that I am going to attack you in court but, before, I will denounce you in front of the whole planet, that is to say to all my contacts and all governmental and non-governmental organizations.

Dr. Éric Denécé: « Following his disappointments in Syria and Iraq, Daesh will boost his terrorist action in the world »

Dr. Eric Denécé. DR.

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: Several months after the attacks that hit Paris and Brussels, do you think that Western Governments have drawn the conclusions it takes?

Dr. Éric Denécé: All the Western states believe that jihadist terrorism is the primary threat against national security and give increasing resources to the fight. But it is difficult to generalize further because the situations are different from one country to another. France, for example, is more targeted – because of its external operations – and concerned – because of the presence on its soil of an important population coming from the immigration. Except for Bulgaria, France is the country of the European Union, which has the largest number of Muslims on its soil. Now, if 95% of our compatriots are respectable and law-abiding, there is, however, a significant minority of radicalized in which recruit Daesh and Al-Qaeda. The problem takes therefore at our place a particular largeness, which is not similar, for example, in Germany or in Italy. Lire la suite »

Michel Rogalski: « Today, it can be argued that the forms taken by globalization have become criminogenic »

Michel Rogalski. DR.

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: In your opinion, what are the real issues of rapprochement between Turkey and Russia?

Michel Rogalski: It is a temporary alliance that perhaps will not stand the test of time, even if a dimension of the alliance focuses on sustainable aspects, as the energy chapter that assumes a long industrial cooperation to succeed. The two countries need to get out of their relative isolation, so all pushes them for now to get closer. Determined from longtime, the Erdogan’s visit to Moscow was « boosted » by the coup attempt in Turkey and not much solidarity reaction of Western countries or of European Union and NATO.

Dr. William B. Quandt: « Algeria has to get through its next transition of power »

Dr. W. Quandt

Dr. William B. Quandt. Dr.

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: Why Dr. Quandt is he interested in Algeria, notably through his two books: Between Ballots and Bullets: Algeria’s Transition from Authoritarianism, and Revolution and Political Leadership: Algeria, 1954-1968?

Dr. William B. Quandt: I was a student in France in 1961, just as the war in Algeria was coming to an end. A few years later I was graduate student at MIT and I was interested in how the newly independent countries would develop. I decided to study Algeria, partly because I was more or less fluent in French, and I was interested in the question of how a revolution can become a state. That led to my first book. Lire la suite »
