Miko Peled - The General's Son

Miko Peled's father was one of Israel's most famous generals. After the Six-Day War, Gen. Matti Peled "signalled his own commitment to truth by rubbishing Zionism’s version of events. He did so with the statement that there was not a threat to Israel’s existence and that it was a war of Israeli choice (i.e. aggression not self-defense). General Peled was also one of a number of prominent Jews who called soon after the 1967 war for the immediate establishment of a Palestinian state on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip."

Miko thinks the two-state "solution" is no longer viable. His blog is dedicated to getting his views on this out there.

He recently has been shown on a 28-minute video that articulates his views on a secular state that includes Israelis and Palestinians, with no special privileges for any cultural group or religious sect over those of others. (hat tip to Annie):
