“The General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine”

Tuesday, 23 October 2012 | A Public Affair

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. The path of exploration and reconciliation he and family members took was a surprising one, filled with fascinating insights.

He will be speaking at the UW-Madison on Thursday, Oct. 25 at 7:30 pm, AT&T Lounge, Pyle Center, 702 Langdon Street.
