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.

Video: Testimony of kids who were stoned while walking to school

On Jan 1, I wrote about schoolchildren being chased by a masked man who threw stones at them with a slingshot. Pretty sick, right? The Israeli army is complicit for arriving late to escort the children and also refusing to prosecute, arrest, or evacuate the settlers/criminals who carry out these violent acts against children.

I conducted interviews with the kids and translated the video. I hope it helps to humanize the situation, to put a face to the names on the press release. The kids are awesome, so brave, and so so vulnerable.
