Mid-East expert coming to Orlando


Dr. Mordechai Kedar

As the turmoil in the Middle East continues to increase; as states like Syria, Iraq, Libya and Yemen fall apart in a bloodshed; as millions of people from the Middle East become refugees in western countries; as a global superpower like Russia takes part in the Syrian civil war and as the role of the U.S. in the Middle East politics is minimal, it is ever more confusing to understand who everyone is and what they want. 

On Thursday, Feb. 4 at 7:30 p.m., Dr. Mordechai Kedar (PhD. Bar-Ilan U.), an expert on the political discourse of the Middle East, will be speaking at Nate's Shul located at 1701 Markham Woods Rd. in Longwood. Dr. Kedar, will layout what each group stands for, what they really want and the dangers they represent.

Kedar served for 25 years in the Israel Defense Force military intelligence specializing in Syria, Arab political discourse, Arab mass media, Islamic groups and Israeli Arabs. 

Kedar is the director of the Center for the Study of the Middle East and Islam (under formation), a research associate of the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies and a lecturer in the Department of Arabic at Bar-Ilan University in Israel. He lectures publicly around the globe and advises companies about general issues on the Middle East, regime stability, Islamic leadership and jihadist movements. Kedar has been interviewed on al-Jazeera in Arabic with English subtitles discussing Jerusalem. His insight and backbone took the moderator by complete surprise, and the online video is priceless. You can see this video at tinyurl.com/kedar1.

Kedar will answer all questions pertaining to the Middle East, Israel, Jerusalem, the Arab Palestinians and the complex problems facing the world today.
