    I am trying to translate the following sentence :

    "Il ne sera pas dupe de la confusion volontairement crée et de l’amalgame continuellement entretenu"

    I am really not sure of :

    "He will not be fooled of the confusion willingly created and amalgam continuously maintained"

    thank you for your help

    However, I think that amalgame is more common in French than amalgam in English. We talk about fusion, combination, medley, mixing, even mix-up...

    A bit late in the day, but it should be 'purposely' and not 'willingly'.
