I think some interesting points were raised. I did not see where condel showed the cartoon on his video and then gave his addres. Which would convince me of his own distinctive courage in this matter.

Beyond that I noted his sardonic reference to Islam as a religion of peace. Presumably implying that the threats of Muslim radicals are sufficient to tar the entire religion.

Fair enough if we use the same standard for other religions. It is a fact that numerous abortion clinics have been bombed and doctors killed by people under the banner of Christ. So we must judge all Christians by these actions?


There. Are also lots of examples of Jewish zealots who have done unsavory things in the name of their religion. So may we judge every Jew by the worst excesses committed in the name of Judaism?

All Abrahamic religions are historically violent. I haven't listened to Condell, by the way, as I generally find his views hysterical, misleading and offensive.
