Miko Peled Speaks At Bethlehem Library

December 5th, the Bethlehem Neighbors for Peace, Palestinian Rights Committee, Troy Area Labor Council, and Women Against War hosted Miko Peled at the Bethlehem library. Peled is the son of an Israeli General who served in the 1967 war and the grandson of a signer of the Israeli Declaration of Independence. He himself was a special forces Red Beret soldier in the Israeli military until he became disenchanted with the direction he saw his country taking and became a peace and human-rights activist. Many pro-Israeli activists tried to have the talk shut-down and attempted to disrupt the talk itself. This excerpt of the talk begins with Peled being asked by moderator David Banks to explain what people mean when they say that Israel’s treatments of Palestinians qualifies as apartheid.
