ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the terrorism activities of dictator Muammar El-Qaddafi in Libya. The author discusses attempts and murders carried out by terrorists sponsored by Qaddafi. In November, the Charge d'Affaires at the U.S. Embassy in Paris, Christian A. Chapman, was leaving his apartment when a man fired six shots at him. Chapman, who was unharmed, identified his would-be assassin as "Middle Eastern in appearance." A CIA report issued June 16 of last year said that Libya was chiefly responsible for the large increase in international terrorism in 1980. While there is little doubt about Qaddafi's involvement in international terrorism, there is some question about the extent of his relationship with the USSR. Qaddafi sees himself, and is determined to become, the ruler of North Africa and, eventually, of 160 million Arabs.
