Lecture by Miko Peled

Miko Peled, is an Israeli writer and activist living in the US.  He is about to publish his book "The General's Son," a personal narrative of an Israeli discovering Palestine. Miko is the son of Israeli General Matti Peled, who was among Israel's top decision makers in the 1967 Six Day War. In 1997 Miko's 13 year old niece was killed in a suicide attack in Jerusalem, prompting Miko to learn more about the conflict and engage with his  Palestinian neighbors to learn what can be done to stop the killing of innocent people. Miko, along with Palestinian Nader Elbanna, is co founder of the Elbanna-Peled Foundation, dedicated to empowering groups who work for reconciliation efforts in Israel/Palestine.
