ON THE STEPS OF THE
An Evening with Miko Peled
Date: August 19, 2014
Israeli activist will speak about his book, , which is based on his life growing up in a well-known Zionist family. After following in his family’s footsteps and serving in the Israeli Arm, Peled withdrew during the 1982 Lebanese invasion and devoted his life to peace activism.
“As an Israeli that was raised on the Zionist ideal of a Jewish state,” he has written, “I know how hard it is for many Jews and Palestinians to let go of the dream of having a state that is exclusively 'our own.' For the good of both nations, the Separation Wall must come down and the Israeli control over the lives of Palestinians must be defied so that a secular democracy where all Israelis and Palestinian live as equals be established in our shared homeland.”
The event is sponsored by the Interfaith Community for Palestinian Rights and the Palestine Solidarity Committee at the University of Texas at Austin.
