THE AMERICAN BEHIND THE EGYPTIAN COUP

Gene Sharp

The Father of the Egytian Revolution is a friend of the CIA called Gene Sharp.

According to Thierry Meyssan (The Albert Einstein Institution: the CIA.):

Gene Sharp "helped NATO and then the CIA train the leaders of the soft coups of the last 15 years".

Sharp's Albert Einstein Institution plans coups.

Sharp has links to the 'stay-behind groups' associated with Operation Gladio.

Sharp trained dissident groups within the PLO.

Sharp helped break up Yugoslavia. (The Albert Einstein Institution.)


In The Scotsman, on 18 February 2011, Sheryl Gay Stolberg (a good Scottish name) wrote about "Gene Sharp, the American whose ideas defeat dictators".

From this we learn:

1. Gene Sharp, aged 83, has written "From Dictatorship to Democracy", a guide to toppling autocrats.

This guide is said to have inspired dissidents in Bosnia, Tunisia and Egypt.

2. The International Centre on Non-violent Conflict, which trains activists, slipped into Cairo several years ago to conduct a workshop.

It uses Sharp's list of tactics that range from hunger strikes to "protest disrobing" to "disclosing identities of secret agents".

3. Dalia Ziada, an Egyptian blogger and activist attended the workshop and later organised similar sessions on her own.

She said trainees were active in both the Tunisia and Egypt revolts.

4. Peter Ackerman, a former student of Mr Sharp founded the non-violence centre and ran the Cairo workshop.

5. The Muslim Brotherhood had Sharp's From Dictatorship to Democracy posted on its website.

6. In 2007, Chávez of Venezuela denounced Gene Sharp.

Officials in Burma, according to Wikileaks, accused Sharp of being part of a conspiracy to set off demonstrations intended "to bring down the government".

7. In 1989, Sharp flew to China to witness the uprising in Tiananmen Square.

In the early 1990s, he was in a rebel camp in Burma at the invitation of Robert Helvey, a retired US Army colonel who advised the opposition there.

8. Sharp has been seen as a sort of Lawrence of Arabia, stirring up Arab revolts.

This displeases As'ad AbuKhalil, the Lebanese political scientist and founder of the Angry Arab News Service blog.
