Well Done Mr Mordecai

It's greta to see a Jew defend His God given homeland, most of the time, it's jews who are at the receiving end hence watching Mr Mordecai take OWNERSHIP of the talk was great...a meaningful and frank dialogue with the "WILLING" arabs n others is useful...sadly some have made up their minds to only blame jews for all the problems...in the end however (as Mordecai said) the truth is that "JEWS WILL NEVER EVER BE DRIVEN AGAIN FROM THEIR GOD GIVEN HOMELAND....ZION IS FOREVER" Shalom

Islam is not interested in the facts !

Morechai Kedar is a lone messager. I do pray that some in islam are listening. However it seems Islam ain't interested in the facts. Watching this I am reminded of a Yasser Arafat statement of some years ago which was or near enough, ' there is no historic archeological evidence that Jews ever lived in Jerusalem". Nuff said ! Ignorance is the curse of the Muslim nation it seems.

Needs to message better....

Like almost all other spokespersons for Israel and the Israeli military who appear on Arabic news channels, he has no idea how to explain an Israeli position to an Arab audience. He appears to them as a fanatic, they way spokes people for Hamas and ISIS appear to us. Totally crazy and totally fanatical and totally beyond the pale of reason. His technical command of Arabic is good, but his understanding on how to speak it in the culturally relevant way which would make sense to the average educated Arab is zero.

Please explain

I would like to hear ARTH elaborate on how Mordecai Kedar should explain the Israeli position on Arab media. I agree that Mr Kedar may appear fanatical but is his fervour related to the way he is being interviewed? I don't know, and would like to know more.
