a public conversation on the prospects for Middle East peace

Israeli American activist and author Miko Peled has toured widely presenting his book The General's Son: the Journey of an Israeli in Palestine. Dr. Laila Al-Marayati is a Palestinian American physician and activist with KinderUSA. They join in public conversation on the Israel-Palestine question at the Levantine Cultural Center on Thursday, Nov. 21, 7:00 pm. The program is cosponsored by Jewish Voice for Peace-LA. Everyone is invited to participate. Enjoy food/drink in our Café Rumi.

Writes Alice Walker in her foreword:

"There are few books on the Israel/Palestine issue that seem as hopeful as this one. First of all, we find ourselves in the hands of a formerly Zionist Iraeli who honors his people, loves his homeland, respects and cherishes his parents, other family members and friends, and  is, to boot, the son of a famous general whose activities during Israel's wars against the Palestinian people helped cause much of their dislocation and suffering. Added to this, long after Miko Peled, the writer, has left the Special Forces of the Israeli army and moved to Southern California to teach karate, a beloved niece, Smadar, a young citizen of Jerusalem, is killed by Palestinians in a suicide bombing. Right away we think: Goodness. How is he ever going to get anywhere sane with this history? He does."

By YASMIN NOUH, OC Weekly, Thursday, Aug 30 2012

World-renowned composer Naser Musa is inspired mostly by the Bible, Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish and Mahatma Gandhi. He speaks in a soft, hushed tone about the uprooting of his grandparents and parents from Ayn Karem, a Palestinian village bordering Jerusalem. His grandfather, an entrepreneur who developed a lucrative business in agriculture, lost his land and home to Israeli settlers in the spring of 1948. His father, heir to the land, also lost it.
