Palestine … Without Zionism
By TLB Staff Writer: Ariyana Love
Born in Jerusalem in 1961, to a staunch Zionist family who was intricately involved in the founding of the Israeli state, Miko’s grandfather was a prominent leader who co-signed Israel’s “Declaration of Independence.” Miko’s father, General Matti Peled, fought as a young officer in the 1948 war and was a General in the war of 1967 when Israel conquered the West Bank, Gaza, Golan Heights and the Sinai, creating a single, bi-national state, with exclusive rights for Jewish people.
In his book titled, “The General’s Son, Journey of an Israeli in Palestine” Miko shares how he came to the realization that the story he was raised on was a lie.
In 1997, a man desperate to end his own suffering and the suffering of his people, tragically killed Miko’s niece in a suicide bombing in Jerusalem. The gut wrenching reality was embraced by the Peled’s with enlightened courage and propelled him on a journey of self-discovery. A painful transformation was activated. Urged to re-examine the belief’s he was raised on, Miko morphed into a human rights activist for justice and truth, dedicated to exposing the false Israeli narrative, tearing down the separation barrier and transforming the apartheid system into a secular democracy, with equal right for all.
