Miko Peled is a leading inspiration and beacon of light in the liberation of a nation from an oppressive Regime, in the heart of the Middle East. We are observing a chapter in world history that surpasses the violence of Apartheid … The Israeli military occupation of Palestine.
Please listen to this great discussion (click on the radio graphic above) with one of the most recognized and outspoken activists for Palestinian freedom & rights alive today.
Palestine … Without Zionism
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 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.
