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.

The video that should change the world

Watch this video. Watch it from beginning to end.

Abeeb Abu Rahma, seen in this video, was imprisoned weeks after this video was shot. He has been in prison ever since, on fabricated charges.

But you understand why he was arrested, right? This kind of nonviolent resistance, this passion, this determination to take back the land that is his, will bring the Israeli occupation regime to its knees. That's why Israel had to arrest him.

Hear the passion in his voice, even if you can't understand his words, and know the courage it takes for him to embrace nonviolent resistance in the face of these occupying forces. Several people from Abu Rahma's village have been killed, many more are in prison, for their impassioned resistance.
