“Great acts grow out of great occasions, and great occasions spring from great principles, working changes in society, and tearing it up by the roots.”
– WILLIAM HAZLITT (1778-1830) English essayist, critic
eace activist and author Miko Peled was born in Israel in 1961 and his father was a general in the Israeli military, – making Miko Peled a privileged Zionist person in the country, and the last person one would expect to become a leading advocate for Palestinian rights. Mr. Peled is most famous for his book, The General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine”, while having spoken in many nations and regions around the Earth.
Mr. Peled delivered a lecture on March 5, 2020 at the University of California – San Diego after accepting an invitation from Students for Justice in Palestine. In his breathtakingly powerful speech condemning apartheid conditions and genocide faced by Palestinians across decades since 1948, Mr. Peled notes that, of the remaining presidential candidates in 2020 – Trump, Biden and Sanders, only Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has sided with the Palestinian people and refused to appear at the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference.
Persons familiar with the highly-respected Jerusalem-born Columbia University professor of comparative literature and Palestinian rights activist the late Edward Said (1935-2003) will understand why we suggest Mr. Miko Peled belongs in the same rare, distinguished category of strong, fearless moral leadership.
In sharing this immensely powerful call to action by Miko Peled on the 72-years-long Israel-Palestine conflict – upon which arguably the potential establishment of true peace on Earth depends – our hope is that people all around the world will come to hear “Miko’s Mighty Message”.
Please seriously consider disseminating this General’s Son and good man’s extremely important, timely, moral message widely. Thank you.

We would suggest pausing often during Barbara Honegger’s fast-paced presentation of 32-minutes, as it is filled with a great deal of facts and details. For those outside the United States, please share widely with family, friends and associates.
For Americans, please share widely as well, – and please consider sharing particularly with local fire, police, sheriff and other public safety agencies, while urging those organizations to replicate the resolution passed by New York City-area Franklin Square-Munson Fire Commission calling for a new 9/11 investigation.
The message in the last slide of Barbara Honegger’s powerful presentation is of immeasurable importance, and therefore necessitates profound emphasis and maximum repeating:
“The real perpetrators are still at large, extremely dangerous, are hiding behind layers of lies and Patsies, and must be brought to justice.”

Palestinians are at the heart of the conflict in the M.E Palestinians uprooted by force of arms.. Yet faced immense difficulties have survived, kept alive their history and culture, passed keys of family homes in occupied Palestine from one generation to the next.
This blog is devoted to legal, historical and human rights matters, in which issues of general concern are addressed freely and spontaneously. It is intended to further an informal exchange of views in the democratic spirit of freedom of opinion and respect for the opinions of others, in an effort to understand rather than condemn, to propose constructive solutions rather than grandstand. The perspective is both from inside and outside the box and the added value lies more in the questions than in the answers.
