author of the
General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine
– on Tuesday, November 18, 2014 at 7 p.m. in Beckman Hall 404.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Miko Peled is a peace activist who dares to say in public what others still choose to deny. He has credibility, so when he debunks myths that Jews around the world hold with blind loyalty, people listen. Miko was born in Jerusalem in 1961 into a well-known Zionist family. His grandfather, Dr. Avraham Katsnelson was a Zionist leader and signer on the Israeli Declaration of Independence.   His father, Matti Peled was a young officer in the war of 1948 and a general in the war of 1967 when Israel conquered the West Bank, Gaza, Golan Heights and the Sinai.

This event is free and open to the public.
