US DOCUMENTS SHOW WASHINGTON FUNDED MILITARY COUP IN EGYPT

Muslim World

Despite the fact that American president Barack Obama has said the US did not take sides during the recent coup against the elected president in Egypt, US federal government documents proves that the White House funded many prominent Egyptian activists who have worked outspokenly to undermine the democratic experience. According to an in-depth investigation published by Aljazeer.net/English, those activists and their institutions which are apparently working to ‘reinforce democratic values’ in Egypt, have contributed significantly to the toppling of the first freely elected Egyptian president, Mohamed Morsi.

The documents, Aljazeera said, were obtained by the Investigative Reporting Program at UC Berkeley. They show that the US channelled funding through a State Department programme to Egyptian activists and the institutions they run. However, the US knows that its funds go to anti-democracy activities. The programme is known by US officials as a “democracy assistance” initiative. They work to win back influence in Arab Spring countries after the rise of Islamists. Of course, the documents show that funding these parties form a clear opposition of Egyptian law, which prohibits foreign political funds. At the same time, it breaks US government regulations that ban the use of taxpayers’ money to fund foreign politicians, or finance subversive activities that target democratically elected governments, said Aljazeera.
