Lieutenant Colonel Dr. Mordechai Kedar has twenty-five years of experience in the IDF Military Intelligence and is a world expert on understanding the geo-political and military situation in the Middle East. He is one of the leading international authorities on the political discourse of Arab countries, terrorism, the Arab Spring and Palestinian statehood, and has published many works. Currently he is a lecturer at Bar-Ilan University.
Dr. Kedar analyses and explains the dynamics facing Israel: Syria, Iran, war and politics. Fluent in Arabic and able to debate Muslims in their own language, Dr. Kedar has made several appearances on Al jazeera. Most famously, perhaps, is when he spells out the truth about Islam and Israel, much to the dismay of the interviewer! You can watch the clip at 28:28~Dr. Kedar also explains how he came to be interviewed.
In this video he speaks at the Sinai Indaba (South Africa) conference, and addresses the very real problems that are stirring up the Middle-East. Do Listen to what he has to say~He predicts exactly what has happened to date and identifies mistakes the west has made~and continues to make. Unless we learn to understand the mind-set of the people in this region, it will only get worse!
