I think this literally might be exactly what the middle east and in particular the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians need right now.

Beck insisted in a Jerusalem Post interview this week that he is "not here for politics". Many are unconvinced. Joanna Brooks, a US expert on Mormonism, the faith Beck was converted to in 1999, argued in the online magazine Religion Dispatches that Beck sees tonight's rally – at which he will appear with the famously right-wing Hollywood actor Jon Voight – as part of "a latter-day crusade to save the Holy Land from the Palestinians".

A flavour of the views he expressed at his packed "Restoring Honour" rally in Washington a year ago shows how far Beck identifies with the pro-settler far-right in Israeli politics.

"There are forces in this land, and forces all over the globe, that are trying to destroy us," he told his ecstatic audience then. "They are going to attack the centre of our faith, our common faith, and that is Jerusalem. And it won't be with bullets and bombs. It will be with a two-state solution that cuts off Jerusalem, the Old City, from the rest of the world."

Introducing the special guests.....

But many, if not most, of the 1,600-strong audience will be from abroad – mainly American supporters who have flown in for an event which the organisers say has pledges of support from Democrat Senator Joe Lieberman, Mort Zuckerman, the Canadian-born billionaire publisher of the New York Daily News, and Republican presidential hopeful Rick Perry. They will include representatives of Christian Zionism, whose passionate support for Israel is complicated by a belief among many of its adherents that Jews will have to convert to Christianity before the second coming of the Messiah.

This is just going to be so much fun.....

He is restoring courage of course.

For some reason after making quite a few anti semitic remarks in his time he now sees it as his place to be at the front of the Christian Zionist support of Israel.

Although many Israelis appreciate this many are also quite perturbed that this support is mainly based on the Chrisitian Zionists view that end times will come in Jerusalem as a result of the Jews returning to the land of Israel and that at the time all Jews will have to convert to Christianity or cast in to the pits of hell.

Good times.

Why would anyone waste their time listening to Beck? Maybe he can do America a favor and keep his hate mongering Islamophobic butt over there.

at this point America has enough crazies to have a bunch everywhere.

and more and more reality politicians have found there is money to be made from the idiot followers of religious extremism.

as they work for the self fulfilling prophecy of destroying the world.

nothing new for the religious crazies.

Probably the most disgusting thing I've ever read on ATS.

Arab MK's are rightly concerned about the potential for violence.

Glenn Beck’s Restoring Courage rally at the Southern Wall excavations site next Wednesday could spark a conflagration of violence in Jerusalem, Arab Knesset members and activists warned Wednesday.

“There are enough racists in Israel without importing them from the US,” Hadash MK Muhammad Barakei said.

“The lessons from Ariel Sharon’s visit to the Temple Mount apparently haven’t been learned. This event isn’t for building coexistence, but to spark fires in a sensitive location ahead of the United Nations vote on a Palestinian state in September.

“There is a danger that the event will lead to people being harmed, and the police should have prevented it,” Barakei added.

Would not believe a word that comes out of Beck's mouth. Speaking about the Norway massacre:

Beck, a self-proclaimed Christian Zionist and Israel-firster, described the brutal carnage “as a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like the Hitler Youth. I mean who sends their kids to a political camp? Disturbing."

Haaretz are running a live blog for the rally.

Prepare for the mind numbing rehasing of 'I am an Israeli' chanted by American citizens. Coupled with a whole host of half truths and lies about the conflict.

From the mayor of Jerusalem. (With some rhethorical flourish from the Haaretz journalists covering the rally, with a large sense of irony)

Barkat: 'Jerusalem is our destiny, and we will not derail from our vision... building united, undivided Jerusalem, there is room in Jerusalem for everyone... for Christians, Muslims and Jews alike.' I'm not sure he ran his speech by the event organizers.

Barkat: 'Tell people what you saw, tell people what you felt.' In other words: TESTIFY!

My name is Nir Barkat. You've been a great audience. Try the chicken.

Supporting Israel is not very popular in the USA.

Look what happened to Katy Perry...

Pop sensation Katy Perry thought she sent a positive vibe out into the universe when she tweeted her support to a fan who asked her to pray for Israel — but she got very little positive back. Or, to put it another way, she prayed for Israel and nobody liked it.

User @luvmikapenniman tweeted at Perry asking her to “please pray with us” and accompanied the request with the hashtag #prayforisrael. Perry responded affirmatively:

Be careful Beck... These people can do more than spill beer.

Sounds lovely doesn't it? Seems like a big market ploy to convert the Jewish to the Christian faith! Ahh! It doesn't matter anymore. Christians will always convert people one way or another.

Which is exactly what i am thinking.

This guy cant do anything without provoking suspicion; especially considering he seems to enjoy doing controversial things.

Glenn Beck is a media personality. His support are the Tea Party Conservatives. Many of them if not all of them are Christian and share the same views as Beck.

His support is from brain dead zombies who aren't smart enough to tell fascism from freedom.
"Tell me what to think, Glenn"

I wonder if he will call them all socialists, communists, and marxists? Israel does have universal health care after all. 250 thousand have protested over the high cost living there as well.

But oh no...I bet he won't....because he's a flaming hypocrite.

Well he has equated the protestors to Marxists and having links with ,oh no, 'Islamist' groups!

“That worked out well for the Soviets,” Beck said when told about the protesters’ demands.

“Why even look if there is any leftist global financing involved?” Beck asked. “Do not look to see if there is any Islamist movement that is joining them.”

What doe he even mean by that? Charities? Social groups? He doesn't specifiy as to indicate that he means terrorist groups.

At least no violence surrounded the event.
