He had been arrested by the Jewish army in the past for protesting against government policies.
Miko Peled is son of Israel’s 1965 war-hero Gen. Matti Peled and brother of Professor Nurit Peled-Elhanan.
Recently, Miko Peled was interviewed by Mnar Muhawesh, founder and editor-in-chief of online news website, Mint Press News. Discussing the Israeli attacks on Islam’s third most sacred place, Al-Aqsa Mosque, Peled said that Israel has declared war on Palestinian children. Listen to the interview below.
Peled said that Netanyahu is very good on lying about people he dislike to divert public attention from his own crimes. He called Netanyahu a war criminal. Netanyahu is a very smart person and knows how to fool world leaders. Nobody believe in Netanyahu rhetoric anymore except the pro-Israel mainstream media. “Israel is not a negotiating partner. It should be totally boycotted by Palestinians and world leaders,” said Peled.
“Palestinians are right to resist Israeli occupation by every possible mean,” he said.
In March 15, 2015, in an interview, Miko Peled told Jewish The Hill that it’s time to give Palestine back to its Native people (here).
On July 15, 2015, Peled posted on his personal blog that the Islamic Republic is not a threat to Israel or the US.
“Netanyahu opposes the US-Iran nuclear deal because Iran supports Hamas and Hizbullah. Both of these organizations were created in response to Israeli aggression and occupation, the former in Palestine, and the latter in South Lebanon. It was the dedicated resistance of Hizbullah that ended the 20-year Israeli occupation of Southern Lebanon, and made it possible for Lebanese to return to their homes in Southern Lebanon. Hamas was democratically elected (2006) to govern. It maintains some semblance of government in Gaza Strip, something they would not be able to do without Iranian money because Israel imposed a siege on the Strip locking 1.7 million people in an open prison,” says Peled.
