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.

You won't get impunity at ASU



This is happening more and more often.  There is a renewed hasbara (the Hebrew word for public relations) campaign sweeping across the United States, that includes sending IDF soldiers to U.S. university campuses.  These ASU students won't stand for it.  Looks like these ASU students modeled their protest on a U of Michigan protest a few weeks ago.   


Hearing the speaker at a total loss for whether or not to address what is happening in the room is just priceless.

Really? I wonder why this video specifically. Does this happen a lot? YouTube has well-earned reputation for taking down 'controversial' videos, especially as they are asked to by people in powerful positions and institutions.
