Watch Dr. Mordechai Kedar: 'How Israel's 70-year success must be a miracle'

On the eve of Israel's 70th Independence Day, Dr. Mordechai Kedar, who teaches Arab Studies at Israel's Bar Ilan University, addressed a gathering in Los Angeles on the theme: "Why Israel's thriving for 70-years must be through miracles."  Dr. Kedar spoke about how Israel, a nation made up of Jews, Christians, and Muslims from many countries, has established a single, national identity despite its tribal affinities and antagonism from the surrounding Muslim countries, which many of its residents have been emigrated from. 

In this interview, Dr. Mordechai Kedar explains how Islam and Muslims regard Christians and Jews - which he sees a vital to understanding the essence of the Arab-Israeli conflict. He discusses what moving the American embassy to Jerusalem represents to the Muslim world.
