World peace depends critically on two things: Justice in Palestine and democracy in America. Both depend on governments of, by and for all of the People, not for a chosen few. There is a misperception that to be Jewish is to be Zionist, supporting a Jewish state in Palestine. That is not true. Many American Jews understand that a Zionist state cannot be democratic and stand with Palestinians, calling for justice for all. Americans must understand that Zionism and American imperialism are the two excuses for terrorism and the "War on Terror" justifying war for corporate Empire. When they do, they must act to compel Israel to decide whether to negotiate for a just peace or continue to follow a course that is the real existential threat to Israel. We must listen to Israelis who at great personal risk are calling for for an end to the apartheid state. They risk approbation, prison and personal threats for speaking out against the right wing policies of the US government. They must compel Israelis to choose justice for Palestinians instead of a course of action that is the real existential threat to their nation. Our guest on April 2 was Miko Peled, son of a former IDF general turned peace activist, grandson of a signer of the Israeli Declaration of Independence and the author of The General's Son. This show was broadcast on April 6 at 10 AM PST/ 12 PM EST on the Star Com Radio network.
