Posting Abby Martin's latest interview with Miko Peled yesterday reminded me that I'd meant to post her first one. I read Mr. Peled's book, The General's Son – Journey of an Israeli in Palestine, after seeing this, and would recommend it for anyone wanting a concise overview of the Palestinian Israeli conflict. More than just being a history book it's the story of a man born into the heart of the Zionist Israeli establishment. His Grandfather was a signatory on Israeli's declaration of independence and his farther was a prominent General who fought in the 1948 and 1967 war. Miko Peled began a journey into Palestine after his niece was killed by a suicide bomber in Jerusalem, a journey that led him to become a prominent peace activist calling for an end to the occupation and a one state solution to the conflict.
