The indecisiveness and ignorance of the Trump administration and the
bluntness of the Netanyahu government have changed the discussion on
Palestine/Israel. No more Two State Solution, but rather a Single state
between the River Jordan and the Mediterranean Sea. The question now is
this: Will it be a democracy with equal rights or an Apartheid State?
Miko Peled is an Israeli born writer an activist. Born to a prominent
Zionist family which includes a grandfather who was a signor of the
Israeli declaration of independence and a father who was a general in
the Israeli army. After a 30-year-career in teaching martial arts in
California, Miko found himself confronted with the Israeli Palestinian
issue in all of its horror: His 13-year-old niece was killed by
Palestinians in a suicide attack in Jerusalem. This brought about a
major shift that Miko describes in his 2012 memoir, "The Generals Son,
Journey of an Israeli in Palestine."
