Miko Peled is the author of "The General's Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine", an epilogue about a self-reflective journey that changed his life and his long-held assumptions about Palestinians. His journey began following a family tragedy and the death of his niece Smadar by a Palestinian suicide bomber. In this book, Miko talks about his fears and concerns when deciding to meet Palestinians for the first time. His honest account reflects the emotional dilemmas he went through that led to reconsidering his beliefs about the other.
