As the author of “The General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine”, guest speaker Miko Peled has traveled extensively, giving talks about his experiences to audiences across the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, and Switzerland. His grandfather signed Israel’s Declaration of Independence and his father fought in the 1948 and 1967 wars, later becoming a peace activist and proponent of dialogue with the PLO.
Miko has described his 2012 book as an account of how he, “the son of an Israeli General and a staunch Zionist”, came to realize that “the story upon which I was raised … was a lie.”

There are few books on the Israel / Palestine issue that seem as hopeful to me as this one. — Alice Walker
