“The General’s Son” Journey of an Israeli in Palestine, with Miko Peled

With

Miko Peled

Miko Peled was born in a Zionist family, at first very influential in the creation of Israel (grandfather was Dr Avraham Katsnelson, signer of the Israeli Declaration of Independence ), his father, General Matti Peled an officer in the 1967 war when Israel conquered West Bank, Gaza, Golan Heights and the Sinai. But then, understanding in depth what was really happening he turned from Zionism and uncovered “myths that Jews around the world hold with blind loyalty as their founding history”, he says.

His book provides a compelling and intimate window into the fears that haunt both peoples– but also into the real courage of all those who, like Miko Peled, have been pursuing a steadfast grassroots struggle for equality for all. A tireless peace activist, he says in public what others deny and explains why the Palestinians cannot continue to be treated and persecuted as they are.
