Absolute truth-Israel is a beacon of democracy .
Israel has the inalienable right and Divine Authority to defend itself.
August 30, 2014 2:20 PM
This is what everyone should hear! The truth! Come on spineless Britain. Stand up for what is right.
August 29, 2014 2:08 PM
Very well put! Lovely to hear such truth in the midst of such vile lies. I read an article some time ago about the 600 millionnaires in Gaza, seems to me they dont need the worlds help but use the world to spread its hatred.

Another Take, with Numbers
This is the third go-round in 7 years. There are almost 2 million living in Gaza. They're not going anywhere. Most Jews, about 70%, of those living in Israel were born there. They're not going anywhere either.I suggest that Arabs and Jews have a major characteristic in common. They're expendable. The rest of the world has arms manufacturers who want laboratory test subjects. Jews and Arabs? Perfect. No one else cares if either of them die.Maybe someday there will be enough Arabs and enough Jews at the same time who recognize this to take over the management of politics in the Middle East. I'm not holding my breath until that happens.

Pat says it like it is (and this isn't the first column that pulls the curtain away from the Religion of Peace®, Thanks for posting it. I look forward to more of his work.

It's about time Aish posted something this forward!
This guy and many have been out there for a while saying exactly this and exactly this so colorfully! There is no need to apologize or dumb down the truth. Hat Tip to Aish for promoting this video and content for consideration! There is a counterfactual subversive attack on Gd, Things that are Gdly, Jews, Israel and Moral Fiber... Primarily Fought in the Realm of the media. It is 90% in the realm of the media and supported by acts of jihadi terror, as they see fit. To fight the attack on us we need to fire back against these word bullets ! It's nice to see more of this content here. Makes me feel that when I invest in the raffle, fork out a check or participate in an Aish program that a more forward tool is here on Aish. What have you done today to fight back against the counterfactual subversive attack against us? If you haven't done anything you may just be helping. Yes, this is Emes...

The western world needs ti hear this to-day!!!!!(Hypocracy )l
Is there anyway we could get enough money to-gether to get this on CNN? I do not have any idea how to do this but there must be someone out there who could organize this project.Fantastic summary Pat Condell!!!!!!!(I am a grandmother living in Canada)
August 11, 2014 7:15 PM
Keep up the great work and telling the facts ! Thank you.
August 11, 2014 5:22 AM
Clarity about 6 1/2 decades in 6 1/2 minutes!
Thank you, Mr Condell, for your amazing concise and clear explanation of a 6 1/2 decade fight. This should be required viewing for all who say they care about this conflict.
August 11, 2014 3:21 AM
May G-d bless you for having the moral clarity and courage to tell the truth.As Orwell said "In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act". Thank you
August 10, 2014 5:11 PM

Honest Common Sense.. Thank you Pat :)
I've been following Pat Condell's videos for about 5 years now.. He is excellent!..He may well be secular in his beliefs, but I am positive, without him even being aware of it, that HaShem is having His say through him!..Keep up the good work my friend. More like you wouldn't go amiss.. :)Keith, UK

What the hell Is wrong with the world? What Pat says is crystal clear. Share this video immediately!

Antisemitisim is rampnat all over the world and getting worse
We are regressing back into a make believe world because it is more pleasant than having to admit that we are under attack. Most of the world believes what it hears from the Arabs about us Jews. Already it is dangerous to travel in Europe if you are recognizable as a Jew. We need to determine how we are going to answer this nonsense and we must do it fast!!!!
August 8, 2014 8:08 PM
Thank you, Mr. Condell, for giving voice to all our frustration and disbelief at the world's hypocrisy when it comes to Israel. We know that hatred of Israel is really acceptable expression of deep-seated, virulent antisemitism. The world will get in spades what Israel is exposed to from Hamas. But Israel will be protected by the One above.

Just happened in Afghanistan, no outrage for NATO actions
Where is Obama's spokesman about we do more in Afghanistan?No outrage about this:Just a couple of days ago. "An airstrike by the American-led coalition killed at least four civilians, including two women". "Taliban fighters fired rockets at an Afghan military air base that also houses coalition forces". "A short time later, around 7 p.m., a coalition aircraft targeted four people on two motorcycles, but those struck were civilians, not the Taliban fighters who had fired the rockets". "In a statement, the coalition said that it was aware of the allegations that it had killed civilians, and that it was “working hand in hand with Afghan authorities to resolve this as quickly as possible.” It did not provide any other details." No words of outrage. No comments from the NYT as to how this analogous to the situation in Israel.http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/06/world/asia/afghan-civilians-killed-in-airstrike-by-american-led-coalition.html?_r=0

August 8, 2014 3:12 PM
WELL SAID PAT!!!!
SUPER PAT!!! KEEP GOING....ONLY ONE THING TO BE CLARIFIED...ISRAEL WAS NEVER A DISPUTED LAND BUT ONE GIVEN BY GOD TO HIS CHOSEN - THE JEWS...it's sad that most of liberal media will only see the devil in israel's camp...when actually they themselves are controlled by satan...hope this acts as a wake up call...I STAND WITH ISRAEL NO MATTER THE COST...SHALOM

SOMEONE SPEAKS UP FOR ISRAEL AT LAST
I am ashamed to be living as a Jew in the UK after the anti-Semitic chants in the streets and online. THANK YOU, Mr Condell, for your measured and fair response to the situation in Israel. If only more people were like you and told it how it is.
August 8, 2014 10:22 AM
Progressives are at a safe distance for now, but we don't know how long that will last
August 8, 2014 9:28 AM
Thanks for telling it like it is.
August 8, 2014 5:46 AM
Well spoken Pat Condell
United nations needs someone like Pat Condell to speak out. They need to develop backbone in war against terrorism, wake - up to Hamas terror strategies and use of their own people as human shields whilst appealing to and deceiving the bleeding hearts of the world. Hamas has a complete disregard for humanity and the human condition.Would like to see Israel take over the Gaza, rebuild it and give the people back their dignity, sense of decency, democracy, peace and harmony.
August 8, 2014 4:52 AM
Great video. Pat speaks the truth......the hypocrisy out there re Gaza is truly stunning. I will never understand why the world likes to hate on Israel and the Jews so much, and have considerable anxiety about it. This Christian will continue to stand with Israel.
August 8, 2014 11:24 PM
Pat isn't a Christian, he's an anti-religious atheist, still a great guy.
August 8, 2014 12:25 AM
thank you Thank you THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!! NOW EVERYONE READING THIS; SEND THIS VIDEO TO EVERYONE. MAKE IT GO VIRAL! I don't know if it will even make a dent in public opinion, but we have to try!
August 7, 2014 9:43 PM
The truth revealed.
Thank you Pat Condell. The one true and sane voice in a sea of nauseating insanity. This video should be required viewing for the world.
August 7, 2014 9:37 PM
Thank you for expressing what so many of us feel
Mr. Condell, I so appreciate your ability to tell it like it is. People of don't take the time to educate themselves and just repeat what they hear on the news, it is -beyond- frustrating to listen to people speak with such passionate ignorance.I have come to the following conclusion: We read Hebrew from right to left, therefore all stories about Israel and Gaza should be read from the bottom up and listened to from end to beginning. Will any of the wealthy middle eastern construction tycoons come by to help rebuild ? Don't think so.
August 7, 2014 6:33 PM
Thank you, Mr. Condell!
August 7, 2014 5:50 PM
You are absolutely right my brother. Spot ON.
August 7, 2014 5:50 PM
Excelent video can you subtitle in spanish
This is an excellent video i would like to share it with my friends they only speak spanish, do you have one with subtitles in spanish? Thank you
August 7, 2014 5:48 PM
you got it right--thanks
Thanks for being so very clear.maybe just one of those leftest will actually listen.
August 7, 2014 4:49 PM
Thank you Pat Condell for your eloquence. Many times I see people post their defense of Israel, but their message becomes muddled because few bother to convey the history behind the struggle, and few incorporate the underlying foundational desires of the Arabs. Thank you for your honesty. Thank you for your clarity.
August 7, 2014 3:49 PM
Nice to hear a voice of voice of reason from a fellow Brit!
Well spoken Pat Condell, but I feeling that these 'progressive' anti semites don't WANT to hear the truth. The claims they are making sound like the idea the western countries came up when dealing with Germany in the late 1930s: Give the aggressor what they ask for and they will be happy. I feel like shouting at the world every time I pick up the Times and read those ridiculous letters to the editor (though I must admit that the Times itself is probably the most pro Israel paper in the UK).But the anti-Semitic mind iso twisted that it doesn't take history into account. As Maimonidies said centuries ago, Esau has always hated Jacob and he always will.None the less, your support is really appreciated. If one person will get your message, it will be worth it. Thank you so much
August 7, 2014 10:16 AM
Thank you so very much for speaking out loud!
Out of all the world insanity, one good,clear thing has sprouted anyway, we've gained the unity and started loving ourselves, which is an enormous break though to our self esteem, because for the thousands of years of Exile we've a bit lost our self identity and our honorable status of the People of G-d, we somehow tried to look like others,thinking like others,even feeling like others.Well it will never work for us, because the G-d never does anything in vain, and if He decided, that He needs a group of people, which is going to make the Earth and Heaven equal, He isn't going to let anybody to stand in the way of realization of His Divine Plan.The world, be it eastern or western, has the same choice to face, as the people of Israel are facing today, or we come back to cooperate with the G-d, or we are going to deal with our problems all alone. If western countries think the present fight with the Islam is the problem of Israel, they better look behind heir backs, and face the threat and damage they have from uncontrolled masses of so called refugees from Arab countries, if the Arabs countries think that they are safe from destruction just because they are also Muslims, they make a very big mistake.Jikhad isn't about faithfulness to the G-d, where then the belly dancers and pathological dreams about 72 virgins come from, JIKHAD IS THE FIGHT FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE AT THE EXPENSE OF OTHERS! Those who call for Jikhad has no idea of the faithfulness to G-d, because being faithful to G-d is being faithful to His Bestowing Nature, being able to generate abundance and bestow it for the benefit of all the mankind. The opposite to faithfulness and righteousness is the worshipping of the grabbing instincts and getting desires-to reach a state, where all your wishes are fulfilled at the expense of other people's content, happiness and even lives, and that is what everybody should know about the future, if they choose to support the destructive form of life.
