Miko Peled, Israeli Peace Activist: Prospects for Peace: What is Next for Palestine/Israel?
October 6, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm| $10 – $15
The indecisiveness and ignorance of the Trump administration and the bluntness of the Netanyahu government have changed the discussion on Palestine/Israel. No more Two State Solution, but rather a Single state between the River Jordan and the Mediterranean Sea. The question now is this: Will it be a democracy with equal rights or an Apartheid State?
Miko Peled is an Israeli-born writer an activist. Born to a prominent Zionist family which includes a grandfather who was a signer of the Israeli declaration of independence and a father who was a general in the Israeli army. After a 30-year-career in teaching martial arts in California, Miko found himself confronted with the Israeli Palestinian issue in all of its horror: His 13-year-old niece was killed by Palestinians in a suicide attack in Jerusalem. This brought about a major shift that Miko describes in his 2012 memoir, “The Generals Son, Journey of an Israeli in Palestine.”
Having sold his martial arts business Miko has gone on the road and is currently a sought out International speaker, writer and activist
working to promote justice and equality in Palestine.
