I think there's a half-truth in what is going on. Jews are indeed leaving France. This is most certainly due to Islamic influence, but is the threat real, or simply perceived? That I think is the operative question. And answering that, I think, is mainly a subjective topic.

I agree. He may very well be. I had frankly never heard of him until I watched this vid, and read this thread. According to what others have said on this thread, he's not someone I want to follow on youtube, or anywhere else.
But in this particular situation, he is saying that Jews are fleeing France, and the stats/figures appear to support that, indeed they are.
The question is, are his assertions on the reasons why they are leaving correct, or are they another anti-Islam outrageous lie?
Well, the fact that Netanyahu basically urged all Jews in Europe to go to live in Israel might have had a considerable amount to do with it, not to mention the huge attention that Anti Semitism has received in the media in Europe over the last little while.
Being threatened is not a reason to leave. It is a reason to fight ones ground, to take whatever comes and kick it in the pelvis till you hear a snapping noise. I do not believe that people would forget that so easily, if the threat level was not so vastly overhyped.

I live in Western Australia and I see it regurlarly how Muslims dont act with Western anglo-saxons values. And fair enough.
I visit their countries and respect their traditions. But on the same hand to say that Muslim women are treated as equal to men BY their own men - in 1st world is drawing a long bow
I am tired of criticism of Euro backround values using the catch all of racism. It be'd more intellectually honest to call it for what it is Cultural/ethnic sublimation of western values.
We all like to ignore the elephant in the room. Whole suburbs in England and Paris where no anglo saxon dare enter.
Forced multi-culturism - National borders are next - oh hang on there are no borders within the EU
What he IS neutral on is that hes an atheist..........so whats his agenda if hes an atheist?
Richard Dawkins, author of The God Delusion, said of Condell that "Pat Condell is unique. Nobody can match his extraordinary blend of suavity and savagery. With his articulate intelligence he runs rings around the religious wingnuts that are the targets of his merciless humour. Thank goodness he is on our side".
Pat’s videos are always entertaining – for people who are uninterested to be “offended” at things, anyway – but they are so full of insincere hyperbole and black-and-white thinking, I sometimes wonder if he’s serious or if he says what he does merely because it’s rhetorically effective. Maybe I’ll write a serious response and he’ll come back to say “Oh come on, man, can’t you see I was only joking?” But if so, this would be a useful revelation to many of his viewers, and if not then I am indeed engaging him for what he really means to say. - See more at: commonsenseatheism.com...
Should he be killed for his thoughts?
No man should be killed for his thoughts or words, no matter how depraved, until those thoughts or words become action.

No I didn't "basically" say that...
I gave an example of why criticism isn't frowned upon.
& I've found no Quranic verse which says Muhammad cannot be drawn...
That was a later addition by men who deemed it tantamount to Idol Worship.
Should he be killed for his thoughts?
Depends on the thoughts & the intent behind turning them into words.
