Miko Peled is a peace activist who dares to say in public what many choose to deny. Born in Jerusalem in 1961 into a well-known Zionist family, his grandfather was a Zionist leader and a signer of Israel’s Declaration of Independence. His father, Matti Peled, was a young officer in the 1948 war and a general in the war of 1967 when Israel conquered and occupied West Bank, Gaza, Golan Heights, and Sinai. The political became personal for Miko when on September 4, 1997, his niece Smadar, 13, was killed in a suicide attack in Jerusalem. He was driven by this tragedy to explore Palestine, its people, and their stories. Miko is an accomplished, professional martial artist. He holds a sixth-degree black belt in karate, and teaches at his dojo in Southern California.
