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.

Introducing: Mona Eltahawy

Writer and blogger, Mona Eltahawy, has been making a lot of appearances on US Television. She is a brave sole for squaring off against many antagonistic voices (i.e. US and Israeli pundits) in the mainstream media.

It's telling how many nongermane claims are made to discount Eltahawy and her point about the democratic and classless nature of the revolution in Egypt. The doubters are forced to refer to PEW poles regarding stoning and sharia law and to make erroneous connections to burqas and Hamas.
