  1. I don’t care what your political affiliation is. But if you love G-d, you love and support Israel. If you don’t, I think that speaks volumes about you and your relationship with G-D.

  2. God bless this atheist, Pat Condell

  3. Everything that is happening now is the effect of Arab hatred towards Jews. Everything.

    A refreshing bit of honesty–from a Christian. Hard to argue with the truth and logic of what he's saying, no matter how many ridiculous accusations the haters hurl at courageous little Israel.

  5. Paul Berman says:

    This is absolutely perfect from a non-Jew.

  6. Ray Glazer says:

    How very true an honest and logical speech. It is a shame that the rest of the world will not hear it or agree.

  7. Thank you, Pat Condell for speaking out and stating the truth about the real and true nature of the ongoing Muslim Arab – Jewish Israeli Middle East conflict. I admire and respect Pat Condell for his honesty,

  8. Yes there used to be more than 1 million jews living in arab countries until the arab countries kicked them out. Now there are a total of 2,000 left in those countries.They left with the clothes on their backs and Israel took them in. Lets be fair shall we…… let them back into the countries you kicked them out of, including ALL of their descendants ( totals about 5 million now) and we will do the same with the Palestinians. NO?Dont want to? Sorry but you cant have it both ways. And dont give me that rubbish that it is only since 1948 that arabs have had a problem with jews. Some of my ancestors never left Israel and were farmers there, with arab neighbours in the 1800's. Their arab neighbours shot at them, burnt their houses and crops to the ground and eventually burned the entire village to the ground. I asked my grandfather when he was alive whether they fought back and he replied, "we were pacifists and they took advantage knowing full well we would not".
    So the problem you have with jews now is that for the first time in more than 3000 years the jews will fight.No more whipping boy for you and your kind.

    Pat Condell is NOT a Christian, he is a self-avowed ATHEIST.
