Dr. Mordechai Kedar on Al-Jazeera~Jerusalem & Islam

Lt. Col. (res.) Dr. Mordechai Kedar is an Israeli lecturer in Arabic at Bar-Ilan University, and served for 25 years in IDF Military Intelligence, specializing in Arab political discourse, Arab mass media, Islamic groups and the Syrian domestic arena. 

Here, in an interview with Al-Jazeera, he tells the real truth--in Arabic., and it was not what Al-Jazeera was expecting. The  response of the interviewer is, need to watch and see. Here are a few excerpts...Enjoy!

Dr. Kedar:
We were here when your forefathers were drinking wine, burying their daughters alive and worshiping idols.

If you want to talk about history we'll talk about the Koran. You cannot erase Jerusalem from the Koran.

Dr. Kedar:
Jerusalem is not mentioned in the Koran (well, I am sure they are doing a re-write to correct this) Jerusalem is not mentioned in the Koran--not even once! And you cannot re write the Koran here on Al Jazeera.
