Miko Peled, the son of the famous Israeli general Mattiyahu Peled, has continued his late father's struggle to find a way for Israelis and Palestinians to live in peace with justice. Miko Peled has recently written a book entitled The General's Son.
Miko Peled has made a very good video, about 29 minutes long, in which he explains the three fundamental myths of the modern Israeli state. Peled's father, a member of the general staff during the 1967 war, realized the need for the creation of a Palestinian state on the West Bank and Gaza after the war. The hard-line extremist Zionists, however, rejected General Peled's sage advice in 1967 and Israel has followed a rejectionist path ever since; a path that is leading to the demise of the Zionist state, as his son explains. Since 1977 Israel has been ruled primarily by the Likud, a political party created by Menachem Begin and the former terrorists of the Irgun and other radical groups. The fact that Israel is ruled by a political party created by terrorists is seldom discussed in the tightly-controlled U.S. media.
I highly recommend viewing this excellent video on the myths and demise of the Zionist state as explained by an intelligent Israeli who knows what he is talking about.
