Video: Glenn Beck addresses Knesset committee

Glenn Beck is here in Israel, and on Monday he addressed the Knesset Aliyah and Absorption Committee, which is trying to deal with those who would delegitimize Israel. Here's partial video of his address. More below the fold.

Let's go to the videotape (Hat Tip: Cheryl H).

Beck had more to say.
American news personality Glenn Beck told the Knesset Aliyah and Absorption Committee Monday that the Biblical Esther and Ruth have guided him as he stands up for Israel.

“Esther knew she had no choice but to come out and speak,” he said, referring to Queen Esther’s risking her life to save the Persian Jewish community. "I knew I had no choice but to speak the truth. I came here in 2002, looked for the truth, and when I got home, I received my first death threat."

Speaking of Ruth, a non-Jew who followed her Jewish mother-in-law Naomi from Moab to Israel and then converted, Beck said, “Your people are my people and I will go where you will go. Your G-d is my G-d. I invite the People of Israel to stand with your G-d."

”We have to believe in common decency, link arms, and G-d will do the rest.”

Beck spoke at the committee hearing at the invitation of committee chairman Danny Danon (Likud) and Shas Knesset Member Nissim Ze’ev. The panel wanted to hear Beck’s views on fighting the worldwide campaign trying to make Israel seem illegitimate.


Before delivering his message, Beck thanked Dr. Joseph Prager, Dr. Paul Brody and Odeleya Jacobs, three Zionist figures in the United States, for their support.

He said that the demands of the Palestinian Authority are another excuse for the world to continue a centuries-old campaign of anti-Semitism, which he said is “going through the roof. The United States has an economic problem and the Jews will be blamed.”


He asked Israelis to join him in Jerusalem on August 24 when he is scheduled to hold a “Restoring Courage” rally, similar to the Restoring Honor really in Washington last year. The rally next month will be views worldwide on at least 700 remote viewing stations.

So, Carl, Beck's god is our G-d? His people are our people?

Did you not even cringe for a millisecond?

Glen Beck is a Mormon Christian. He has a few events scheduled in Israel in August, late August I think with a Christian theme.

One of the problems that Christian supporters of Israel including the CUFI crowd have, is an inscription, on the walls of the Omar's Mosque, also known as "Dome of the Rock", which Caliph Abd al Malik comissioned around 691. In a direct rebuttal to Christian trinitarian, and Jesus is god beliefs, it was clearly written,

"There is no god but Allah alone, without partner. Say: He is Allah, One, Allah the Everlasting, who has not begotten and has not been begotten."

Glenn Beck has objected to these inscriptions vocally.

Christians naturally find them offensive, but they were put there to reject the trinitarian interpretation of god.

Hey Shy Guy, I thought you'd embrace Glen Beck since you see Islam as the enemy. I thought you'd welcome someone like him, since he shares your desire to "destroy" Islam.

You should support him, in his quest to rid the Dome of the Mosque of Islamic influences including it's monotheistic assertions of God.

This is where you so called Jewish warriors against Islam fall soooooooo hypocritallly short. You're happy to use Christians to bash Islam, but unwilling to give them what they really want. A Christian Israel.

A Muslim Israel never really clashed theologically with Judaism or Jewish beliefs. Something you hatemongers always forget. Moses Maimonades used to pray in this Mosque, and there used to be a Synagogue on the Temple Mount, that was destroyed by an eearthquake.

To Chayma: What are drinking or smoking? 'never really clashed'!!
Islam (at least according to the Islamists and a fair reading of the Koran) disagree. The Rambam prayed in a mosque? Where is the documntation for that?

Jewish religious law concerning entry to the site

During Maimonides' residence in Jerusalem, a synagogue stood on the Temple Mount alongside other structures; Maimonides prayed there. The Rambam (Maimonides) specifically states that there are areas on the Temple Mount that Jews are permitted to enter today even when all Jews are ritually unclean. He writes that in 1165 he visited Jerusalem and went up on to the Temple Mount and prayed in the "great, holy house" (probably the Al-Aqsa mosque).
