Transformation from Zionist to Peace Activist
Cindy Sheehan interviews Miko Peled who has a wonderful tale of transformation from being a Zionist to a peace activist.
Miko Peled’s father was the Israeli major general Matti Peled. He was part of the General Staff during the Six Day War in 1967. Israel then conquered the West Bank, Gaza, the Golan Heights and Sinai, setting the stage for the untenable situation the Palestinians face today. His son Miko visited the very territories his father had helped to conquer. He formed friendships in the West Bank, re-considered his own upbringing and did much original research to re-write with authority the history he was taught growing up in Israel.
