What Is The Struggle Over Jerusalem All About?
January 14-8:00 pm
DR MORDECHAI KEDAR
8.00pm Monday 14 January
Dr. Mordechai Kedar is an Assistant Professor at Bar Ilan University. He was a Lieutenant Colonel in the IDF in Military Intelligence and was on active duty until 1995.
An internationally renowned lecturer, he uses his knowledge to open a window into the Muslim and Arab world, past and present, explaining variations according to religion, sect, country and ethnic origin. He is an expert on the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups. The struggle over Jerusalem is clear, since it is in the streets, in the media, in international organizations, in political corridors and in academic institutions. Is it a national struggle between Israel and the Palestinians or is it a territorial issue?
Or maybe a religious problem?
Can analyzing the different elements correctly lead us to a solution?
As a fluent speaker of Hebrew, English and Arabic, Dr. Kedar is consulted on many issues covered in the Arab media. He also writes a weekly analysis about the Middle East for Makor Rishon and Yom leYom. Dr. Kedar is one of the few Arab speaking Israeli pundits seen on Arabic satellite channels defending Israel and we are delighted that he is coming to speak to us on this important subject.
