Special Edition of A Muslim & A Catholic Wake Up In ‘Merica
Tonight’s episode is very unique. Isa, Guest Co-host Robert Fantina [An activist and journalist, working for peace and social justice. He is also the author of several books among them are: ‘Look Not Unto the Morrow,’ a Vietnam-era, anti-war love story and ‘Empire, Racism and Genocide: A History of U.S. Foreign Policy’. He is currently active in supporting the human rights struggles of the Palestinian people.], interviewed Miko Peled, while he was in Jerusalem.
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.
Miko say, “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.”
