Wake Up ‘Merica Show 03/29/2016

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.”

Although the show is prerecorded and no calls will be taken, Isa, Robert and Loki will be active in the chat rooms making comments and answering your questions.

Growing up in a small little town was a unique experience. Being out as a gay male was not a wise decision being amongst loggers and farmers. Things in my personal life made it necessary for me to move to a bigger and more accepting community, Thanks in part to a very good friend and his wife, this was made possible. The move as been very exciting; but scary and overwhelming at times. Although, my family knew I was gay the acceptance of my lifestyle felt more like "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" as they still made snide comments and jokes about gays in general. Being in my new surrounding and learning to be comfortable in my own skin while being introduced to others that embrace who they are has made me feel like a kid in a candy store but also like I need to hide behind someone out of the sense of needing security. As part of my exploration process, while using my experience as a radio announcer, my friend and I do a podcast every Thursday night addressing a variety of topics. I am the voice opposite Dru on The Druth. Taking yet another step in discovering and accepting who I am I launched “Loki’s Closet,” a weekly radio show on the “We Resisters Radio Network” covering topics that the LGTBQ community face on a daily basis. I am always seeking topics and ask for your help in this endeavor, what topics do you think I should talk about? Is there a topic that you think should be brought more to the forefront? I am also the moderator for “The Only Thing ‘Straight’ Here Is the Truth” a FaceBook group and also write a blog under the same title. It is my hope to educate and inspire people. I will accomplish this by sharing my personal experiences and hopefully having each of you share yours. As with anything in life not all topics discussed will be positive, however they will make you think. You cannot have the good without also acknowledging the uncomfortable issues. One person cannot make a very impactful change by themselves, however together as a team or family people will take notice.
