What does the advance of nationalist parties with their anti-immigration and anti-European sentiments mean for France and Europe as a whole?

The bestselling author and political activist, Bernard-Henri Levy feels France's Republican values are at stake, threatened by those like Marine Le Pen, who claim to be defending the country’s national identity.

"This is the party of Marine Le Pen. There is Marine Le Pen on one side who tries to be politically correct, people behind are completely incorrect and voters know that." Levy says. 

We find out more as Bernard-Henri Levy, self proclaimed Republican, atheist and secularist, talks to Al Jazeera.
