The first step of the French campaign against Algeria was to burn the library of Algeria, which contains hundreds of thousands of books. During the confrontations with Prince Abdelkader, they burned his library twice, in which hundreds of precious manuscripts went. In an attempt to understand this colonial determination, the issue of the Algerian archives in France immediately comes to mind. And many elements combine to form the intellectual psychological background that controls the French colonial mind.

In an urgent reading of a book of facts and documents about PrinceAbdul Qadir al-Jazairi, which was compiled and discussed by the granddaughter of Prince Badia al-Hassani, a resident of Damascus, she discovered the size of the forgery, which was overseen by the French establishment and its agents to distort the prince's image with many fabricated accounts of the Prince's reputation. To drop its icon. In the same misleading context, dozens of false accounts of the Algerian revolution and the Algerian resistance are being held hostage by the French archives to be the reference of each analyst or historian.

The same happened to the people of Indochina, where the libraries and history of indigenous people were burned and books written in history and culture on peoples and personalities to create distorted cultural references to peoples.

It does not stop with the French, but extends them to all the European colonialism, which has made it important to re-formulate the historical and present facts in order to characterize the emerging generations of identity and the nature of the conflict that ended with these disastrous results.

European Orientalists and then the Hollywood and American media were the most dangerous corps in the colonial campaigns of our nation. They are not excluded from Henry Churchill to T. E. Lawrence and his book The Seven Pillars of Wisdom, British Richard Burton, Dutty, Lynn, James Alroy, Flickr and many others, as the Arab thinker Edward Said said that the orientalists had a dangerous mission: trying to manufacture an East, not the real East. Intellectuals of these countries that this is the East .. It was agreed with them was educated and enlightened, but those who disagree with them and counter their cheap propaganda, it is a radical terrorist reactionary.

France were burned twice The Library of Algiers and the Library of Prince Abdelkader to cancel the Algerian novel and remain on stage only the French version of the conflict. Here lies the great danger, where the chances of camouflage and deceit remain available to the waves of colonialism that come across more than an economic, political or cultural channel.
