How can you take the Guardian seriously? This is not the New York Times. They say Gene Sharp inspired Arabs

"Gene Sharp, US scholar whose writing helped inspire Arab Spring, dies at 90".  This would be a good parody of Western media coverage of Arab affairs.  And they say: "It has been translated, often by activists themselves".  Activists themselves? Translation of Gene Sharp was done by the institute of...Gene Sharp.  I am a witness of that because they contacted me regarding Arabic translation of his work and asked for suggestions for translation and editing and I thought they were so lame and uninteresting that I referred them to a friend.
