Synopsis
In 1997, tragedy struck the family of Israeli-American Miko Peled: His beloved niece Smadar was killed by a suicide bomber in Jerusalem. That killing propelled Peled onto a journey of discovery. It pushed him to re-examine many of the beliefs he had grown up with, as the son and grandson of leading figures in Israel's political-military elite. Over the years that followed he was transformed into a courageous and visionary activist in the struggle for equal rights and a hopeful, lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Esteemed African-American author Alice Walker has contributed a moving and thoughtful Foreword to The General's Son. The personal journey that Peled traces here echoed the trajectory taken 40 years earlier by his father, renowned Israeli general (and later peace activist) Matti Peled. Miko Peled tells us about growing up in Jerusalem in the heart of the group that ruled the then-young country, Israel, and about his service in Israel's army... Then, after his niece's killing, he takes us with him through his first attempts to reach out to Palestinians, and into the heart of his later solidarity activism. The General's Son provides an intimate window into the fears that haunt both peoples-but also into the courage and creativity of those who, like Miko Peled, have been pursuing a steadfast grassroots struggle for equality in the Holy Land.
