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.

Quote of the Week: Vol 6

John Bolton, former U.S. rep to the United Nations, on Barack Obama
"I think his naivete is overwhelming, it's not American strength that's provocative, it's American weakness."
