Location: Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, 1779 Massachusetts Ave. NW
Event Details: The Foundation for Middle East Peace and Churches for Middle East Peace present a talk by Miko Peled on his book The General’s Son. Miko Peled is the son of the late Matti Peled, a famous Israeli general and hero of the Six Day War, and grandson of a signer of Israel’s Declaration of Independence. After retirement, General Peled became an expert in Arab Affairs, a pioneer in the Israeli peace movement, and an outspoken peace activist. In Miko Peled’s book about his father’s career and his personal political evolution, the author, who also served as an officer in the IDF, describes his journey from loyal supporter to critic of Israel, spurred by the tragic death of his 13 year old niece Smadar in a terrorist attack in Jerusalem. He tells his story with unsparing honesty, passion, and humanity.
