“First Steps in Defeating Islamic Terror” with Dr. Mordechai Kedar

February 12, 2015 @ 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

RSVP to: dheffernan@emetonline.org,
Please Include Subject Line: “Mordechai Kedar”

From ISIS’s beheadings, to the tragic terrorist attacks in Paris last month, including the Charlie Hebdo shootings leaving 13 innocent dead, and the slaughter of four Jews at a Kosher supermarket for the mere fact that they were Jewish, the Western world has been left shocked by an enemy it does not know how to defeat. The Islamic State’s campaign of genocide and crimes against humanity has taken on a new level of horror with the recent murder of Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kassebeh, who was burned alive by the radical Islamic terror group. The U.S.’s greatest ally in the Middle East, the State of Israel, was subject to Hamas’ launch of 4,000 rockets into many of its major cities, and the State has to fight terrorists, including those from Hamas the Palestinian Authority and Hezbollah, on a daily basis to protect its citizens.

Please join us as we hear insights from Dr. Mordechai Kedar on why Islamic terrorists are targeting the free world, and what we need to know about the Muslim and Arab world to win the war on terror. 

Dr. Mordechai Kedar is an Israeli scholar of Arabic literature and a lecturer at Bar-Ilan University. He holds the Ph.D. from Bar-Ilan University.  Kedar is an academic expert on the Israeli Arab population. He served for twenty-five years in IDF Military Intelligence, where he specialized in Islamic groups, the political discourse of Arab countries, the Arabic press and mass media, and the Syrian domestic arena.  He is a highly published author who has consulted with both the United States Armed Forces as well as Israeli forces. The Los Angeles Times‘ Edmund Sanders described Dr. Kedar as “one of the few Arabic-speaking Israeli pundits seen on Arabic satellite channels defending Israel.”
