My Enemy My Brother (2008)

November 5, 2008

Exhibit Catalog: As long as we see each other as different, the wars will never stop.


We are fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, bosses, employees, emigrants, lovers and, most of all, children.

If we begin to see each other as we are…brothers, all striving for the same things and with the same problems…then maybe we can begin to put an end to this madness.

We live in the Middle East as well as the East End…or Atlantic Avenue…Edgeware Road…the Left Bank. We are Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jews, Druse, Persians and much more.

When we begin to see our enemy’s face as that of our brother’s, then there can be hope.

In the aftermath of September 11th, US immigration, countless embassies and the general population made me feel arab for the first time in my life…merely because of my last name. So I travelled throughout the Middle East and North Africa to understand what it means to be Arab.

The exhibit was awarded a Prize for Peace by the Region of Puglia in Andria, Italy.
