Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
From Angry Arab:

It seems that Sharp now wants to claim credit for the uprisings simply because his book was translated by an AMERICAN foundation into Arabic.


This is rubbish, from the NYT story he's apparently referring to:

Mr. Sharp, hard-nosed yet exceedingly shy, has been careful not to take credit. He is more thinker than revolutionary, though as a young man he participated in lunch-counter sit-ins and spent nine months in a federal prison in Danbury, Conn., as a conscientious objector during the Korean War. He has had no contact with the Egyptian protesters, he said, although he recently learned that the Muslim Brotherhood had "From Dictatorship to Democracy" posted on its Web site.


Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner - that I moved to Nice.
