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.

Commentary on East Jerusalem Evictions

Click here to read an important Haaretz piece on the East Jerusalem, Shiekh Jarrah, evictions. Gideon Levy says that the court's ruling which allowed the evictions displays "the rule of law's true state in Israel: racist and applying a double-standard, with separate legal systems for Jews and Arabs."

An important read for all people who are settlers on other people's land.

May the international community listen to the Israeli/Palestinian calls for recognition of the apartheid measures of the Israeli courts and government.
