‘In America people think that money makes the world go around’
Expert: ‘In Arab culture, there are some things which are way above money, above health, and above prosperity – the honor of Jerusalem.’
In an interview with Arutz Sheva, Dr. Mordechai Kedar, senior lecturer in the Department of Arabic at Bar-Ilan University and an expert on the Middle East, explains why the Americans simply can’t understand the Arab rejection of the “Deal of the Century.”
“When [Hezbollah Secretary-General] Hassan Nasrallah talks about his missiles and his ability to attack Eilat and everything else on the way to Eilat, these are actually the words of his bosses in Iran,” Dr. Kedar said. “[Iran] tries to project a threat against America – not against Israel – against America or against [US President Donald] Trump in particular.”
“[Iran] is saying to Trump, ‘If you try to attack us – meaning Iran – I will make sure that Israel, your beloved country, will pay the price. That’s actually what the message is – it’s not against Israel – it’s actually a message that’s directed toward Donald J. Trump.
“The ‘Deal of the Century’ could be good if it was made by Middle Easterners. The problem was that it was made by the Americans. And Americans, first of all, are suspected of working for their own interests in the Middle East. In the Middle East people are afraid of the conspiracy of Americans and maybe the Israelis as well who concocted this ‘Deal of the Century’ in order to take advantage of the Arab world. So initially, they relate to such a deal in a very negative way because it came from Washington and maybe from [Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu as well.
