    comment dit-on ''arriere fond'' en anglais?

    l'exacerbation du terrorisme ''religieux'' en les developpements de la guerre en Irak constituent une arriere fond pertubater complexe qui modifie a la fois les comportements et les idees des jeunes.

    The aggravation of religious terrorism and the developments of the war in Iraq, amount to in disruptive complex which at times modifies the behaviours and ideas of young people.

    merci!

    would this be a correct translation? although to me it still doesn't sound very English..
    The aggravation of religious terrorism and the developments of the war in Iraq amount to (provides?) a disruptive back drop in the behaviours and ideas of young people .

    or possibly better style (not that your sentence is incorrect)

    The aggravation... in Iraq add up to a disruptive backdrop (one word)...

    I'd say,

    The aggravation of religious terrorism and developments in the war in Iraq amount to a disruptive backdrop in the behaviour and ideas of young people .

    Thats right english, don't know about what it's saying though.
