On Monday October 22nd, John Quinlan shared a compelling and thought-provoking conversation with Miko Peled, an Israeli peace activist and author of “The General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine.”   Son of an Israeli war hero general who was an outspoken proponent on behalf of peace and a Palestinian state following the 1967 war, Miko was challenged in his beliefs in 1997 when his 12-year-old niece was killed by a Palestinian suicide bomber.
