Glenn Beck was given a unique opportunity today while visiting Israel: he delivered a rousing speech before the Israeli version of congress.
Jerusalem Post “Where you go, I shall go, Your people is my people, your God is my God,” Beck said, quoting the book of Ruth while addressing the Knesset Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs Committee. “As a man who also worships the one God, in the times that we live in, it is clear that what is going on is God’s work. If we are silent, evil will win. But if we stand up and take charge, God will do the rest,” he added.
During the trip, which Beck is taking ahead of his August 24 “Restoring Courage” event in Israel, he received a warm welcome from Israeli politicians as well as from at least one local supporter who went to great ends to show support for Beck. . “(I am) glad to host a friend of the State of Israel,” Knesset member Danny Danon (Likud) told his colleagues. “Usually we don’t clap here in the Knesset, but maybe we can do that at the end.” “Glenn Beck has a lot of experience with putting facts on the table… if we didn’t have someone like Glenn Beck we would have had to invent someone like him,” he added.
