Do Unto Others focuses on the Middle East, (nonviolent) social movements, and how I make sense of my place in the world. I'm currently based in Cairo, Egypt doing peacebuilding and community development.

Newsflash: Nonviolence in Palestine

Today there was a nonviolent training in the South Hebron hills village of At-Tuwani. There was a workshop for women in the morning and men in the afternoon. People came from Mfaqqara, Rakiis, Juwayya, and of course, At-tuwani.

So this goes out to all the haters. This goes out to Obama, for critiquing Palestinian violence (not a mention of Israeli violence) without acknowledging Palestinian nonviolent resistance. This goes out to all the people who believe Hamas militants are representative of 100% of the Palestinian population. This goes out to people who don't recognize that there is an occupation of Palestine (I mean, why else would people be organizing nonviolent resistance). This goes out to all the people who think the sword is more powerful than the pen. This goes out to all the people who believe than guns are more powerful than the voice. This goes out to all the people who believe that power and oppression are louder than the cries for justice and peace. This goes out to all the people who don't believe there is hope.

Hey samuel,
I found your blog entry via the CPT news mails.
I was very moved by it, translated it into German and published it on my blog. I linked your article and hope to have raised attention like this for the important work you do here in Palestine and others in Colombia, Iraq, Canada and the U.S.
If you meet him greet MJ Sharp from me and ask him if you have any doubts about the correctness of the translation.
