SJP and JVP-LA are excited to present Miko Peled and Max Blumenthal on day 3 of our Palestine Awareness Week! The speaker presentations will be followed by a Q&A discussion.
Two Jewish Voices for Palestine:
Miko Peled is a peace activist and author who 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. He uses personal narrative in his book, The General's Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine, to tell the story of his unlearning and relearning of the realities in Israel/Palestine.
