Miko Peled is a son of a famous Israeli general, and a Jewish-American peace activist who argues in his new book The General’s Son, that “… [f]or the good of both nations, Israeli control over the lives of Palestinians must be ended, so Israelis and Palestinians can live as equals.” He tours and lectures widely.
Prof. Nadia Abu-Zahra teaches in the School of International Development and Global Studies at the University of Ottawa. She is the co-author with Adah Kay of the recently published book Unfree in Palestine: Registration, Documentation and Movement Restriction. The book examines the historical basis and current operation of Israeli administrative attempts in Palestine to denationalize, coerce, and expel Palestinians.
Miko Peled will discuss his book followed by a response by Prof. Abu-Zahra.
