The General's Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine with Miko Peled
Location: The Palestine Center, 2425 Virginia Ave, NW
Event Details: In 1997, tragedy struck the family of Israeli-American Miko Peled. His beloved niece was killed by a suicide bomber in Jerusalem. That tragedy propelled Peled onto a journey of discovery. It pushed him to re-examine many of the beliefs he had grown up with as the son and grandson of leading figures in Israel's political-military elite, and transformed him into a courageous and visionary peace activist. The General's Son is his account of that journey.
Miko Peled is a writer and Israeli peace activist living in San Diego. His father was the late General Matti Peled, his grandfather Avraham Katsnelson signed the Israeli declaration of independence, and his niece Smadar was killed in a suicide attack in Jerusalem. He is the co founder of the Elbanna- Peled Foundtion in memory of Smadar Elhanan and Abir Aramin. He is a regular contributor to online publications including The Electronic Intifada, The Palestine Chronicle, and his website mikopeled.com.
