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.

Peace, the most misused word

Robert Fisk on 'Peace' and 'Democracy' and the role of media in the Middle East.  

Fisk says the peace is the most abused and twisted word in the world today.  In bringing peace and democracy to the Middle East, to someone else's land, we bring tanks and apache helicopters.  The Arabs are used to this idea of 'peace' that we bring, cause we do it all the time.  

Watch the first 1:10 of this video.
