Event

An Evening with Miko Peled: "Apartheid and The Struggle for Justice in Palestine,"
We are VERY honored to have the opportunity to host Miko Peled at our humble Community Church of Boston forum. This is one of our generation's most eloquent voices against the Apartheid Israeli Colonial Enterprise. Miko has become a much sought after speaker and lecturer on the subject of Palestine/Israel. His youtube video lectures garner gazillions of views. His activist work on behalf of the Palestinian people is extraordinary.

Miko Peled is the author of "The General's Son", an autobiographical journey of his family's transition from architect of the Israeli experiment (his late father was a prominent general in the formation of the State of Israel), to a chief critic of same. Miko's upcoming book studies the case of The Holy Land Foundation Five.

Here is what Alice Walker said about Miko Peled in the foreword she wrote for his book, "The General's Son":

       "What is the prevailing feeling, having read this moving book, given how determined our testosterone driven world seems to be to make continuous, endless war, and, perhaps, to blow all of us up in one?  I feel immense relief, and gratitude. Someone(s) must take responsibility for being the grown-ups of our human Universe. There must be people, in all walks of life, who decide: Enoughs enough; there are children here

       Miko Peled, at first terrified of reaching out to Palestinians because of the false reports he was, since childhood, given of them, realizes the insanity of remaining enemies of a people he has had no opportunity to truly know. What he discovers energizes and encourages him. He begins to understand the danger inherent in living in ignorance of the so-called other and begins to realize he would be a far different, a far less open and loving person, had he not, despite his fears, freed himself in this way. His freedom to be at ease with the very people he was taught to hate is, of course, a bonus for his own children and for the next generation of Israelis and Palestinians"

        Here is another quote from Alice Walker:  "There are few books on the Palestine/Israel issue that seem as hopeful to me as this one."
