Author: Miko Peled © 2013
The photographs on pages 3,  5, 6, and 7 (PDF version) come courtesy of our author, Miko Peled; they are pictures of four individuals who caused him to think twice about what he had been taught as a boy about his country. His hope is that they will cause his country’s best friends, us Americans, to think twice as well.

Miko’s article is based on his book “The General’s Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine,” published in 2012 by Just World Books.  Permission to reproduce excerpts contained in the article must be obtained from the publisher (rights@justworld books.com).
The Pulitzer Prize winning author, Alice Walker, has granted AMEU permission to reprint her poem (page 2 of PDF), as well as excerpts from her Foreword to Miko’s book; see pg. 14 (PDF).
Copies of Miko’s book are available from the publisher (www.justworldbooks.com) and from AMEU; see pg. 15 (PDF).

Also on pg. 15, our video selections include the Oscar-nominated documentary “Five Broken Cameras,” recommended by Miko Peled in his article.  It is a snapshot of Israel’s ongoing colonization.

--John F. Mahoney, Executive Director, September, 2013

For many Americans, the Muslim Brotherhood has become a catch phrase, a convenient category for encapsulating a wide range of images and fears swirling ominously in the post-9/11 world.  On many occasions during Q and A following a public lecture, in media interviews, or in private conversations with interested non-specialists during the past decade, a surprising array of people have confidently summarized their perspective with a declarative sentence or rhetorical question:  “The Muslim Brotherhood is the problem.” “It is really all about the Muslim Brotherhood, isn’t it?”

The Link has never had a centerfold lay-out — until our current January-March issue.  We decided this was the most dramatic way to  lay bare the naked truth in a way that words alone could never convey.
