Peled has described his 2012 book, The General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine,as an account of how he, "the son of an Israeli General and a staunch Zionist, came to realize that "the story upon which I was raised ... was a lie." The book, he has said, is based largely on long conversations with his mother, on a thorough reading of "everything my dad had ever written," and on material about his father's career in the Israeli army archives. The book, which has been characterized as "part confessional, part cinematic epic and part emotional appeal for 'different answers' to the Israeli-Palestinian conundrum,"contains a foreword by Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple.
Peled is, with Nader Elbanna, co-founder of the Elbanna-Peled Foundation. Established in 2010 and based in Coronado, California, it describes itself as being "committed to peace, justice and equality by operating exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, including, but not limited to the following:
Humanitarian aid to civilians who were injured as a result of Israeli Palestinian conflict.
Support existing educational efforts that promote Israeli Palestinian reconciliation.
Support local grassroots organizations that work together (Israelis and Palestinians) toward a non-violent resolution of the conflict."
This week on SOTT Talk Radio we'll be interviewing Miko Peled, Israeli peace activist, author, and karate instructor. We’re going to be discussing the latest atrocities being committed in Gaza, the circumstances surrounding ‘Operation Protective Edge’, and Peled’s insights into the horror and tragedy of the decades-long Israel-Palestine conflict - for Palestinians of course, but also, ultimately, for ordinary Israelis too.
Miko Peled was born in Jerusalem into a prominent Israeli Zionist family. His father was a famous General in the IDF, in which Miko also served his time. When Miko’s niece was killed in a terrorist attack in 1997, you may have expected the family to blame the Palestinians, but surprisingly, they blamed the state of Israel.
Imbued with his father’s deep knowledge of Israeli war practices, Peled authored The General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine, a book that lays bare the myths surrounding the situation in the Middle East. Peled now travels extensively, giving talks about his experiences to audiences across the world.
We hope you’ll join us live this Sunday July 13th 2014, from 2-4pm EST (11am-1pm PST, 8-10pm CET).
My interview with Miko Peled author and peace activist. Miko talks about the Israeli, Zionist regime and its brutal apartheid, racist treatment of Palestinians, its control of Palestinian land and its resources, which literally imprisons the Palestinian population. We talk about some of the history in the region, and also how the young people are indoctrinated before they leave school and go into the army. Miko talks of a one state solution with people living together in peace and seeing past the labels and conditionings. We also briefly cover the situation with US, Israel, Iran and Syria.
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.

Robert Cost, an author from Portsmouth, Virginia has been writing poetry, music and short stories since the age of 5. In First Grade at Tanners Creek Elementary he won second place at a book story competition. That's when he was pushed by his family to write more stories, although he failed to take heed to their advice.
It wasn't until Robert was 20 and serving a 10 year sentence in the penitentiary where he decided to pick up the pen again. At the time he was gang banging and had a lot of hatred & resentment in his heart. He thought he would never make it home. With the many trials & tribulations he was going through, he used the pen as a way of expressing himself. Almost like a form of release. His stories might be a work of fiction, but the pain, turmoil, emotions expressed within those pages are too real!
