Miko Peled speaks on The General's Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine
Miko Peled, an Israeli writer and activist speaks on his book, The General's Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine, a look at the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from a national and personal perspective.
This is a talk he gave at Portland State University earlier this year.
On his blog, Peled writes:
In my book, “The General’s Son, Journey of an Israeli in Palestine” I show how it is that the son of an Israeli General and a staunch Zionist came to these realizations. Realizing that your side of the story is not the only side to the story, and then accepting rather than fighting this realization and in the end finding that the story upon which I was raised, was a lie – now that is an interesting journey.
