Hundreds of attacks were perpetrated by Armenian terrorists during the 1970s and 1980s, and someothers during the 1990s, the last one in Brussels, on 23 June 1997.
The majority of these attackstook place in democratic, Western countries, and the Orly bombing was the most murderousterrorist attack of French history in times of peace. The support coming from the Armenian Diaspora,or more precisely, from the nationalist elements of this Diaspora, is commonly denied or forgotten.The close links between the political campaigns against Turkey, regarding the all eged “Armeniangenocide,” and the terrorist attacks are similarly denied or forgotten. The memories of the Armenian
terrorist himself are largely erased. Very few plaques or monuments have been erected, outside ofTurkey; none for the Orly attack, for example.The goal of this presentation is to explain how this terrorism emerged, how it was justified bydistortions of history, especially the use of fakes, and how this misuse of the past is continuing untiltoday.
