Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Courage” rally August 24 in Jerusalem

I just read Dovid Efune’s informative Huffington Post blog about Glenn Beck’s visit to Israel. Beck has recently been quoting Ruth from the Old Testament: “Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. … Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried.”

Beck has proven to be a great champion of Israel and the Jewish people. “Go know.” With the U.S. government  waffling in it’s support, given President Obama’s suggestion that Israel should go back to 1967 borders, it is refreshing to hear of Beck’s friendship. Looking forward to hearing about the rally on August 24th in Jerusalem.

I personally know many Christians who are great friends of Israel and who are, in fact, quite Zionistic in belief and action. Words are one thing, but actions such as those that Glenn Beck is taking, are quite impressive. My husband, Max Ciampoli, is one such Christian, actually Catholic by birth. He risked his life many times over during World War II to free the world from the Nazi threat. In many of his missions as a spy for Winston Churchill, recounted in our book “Churchill’s Secret Agent,” Max directly saved Jews from the death camps.

When I lived in Jerusalem in 1971, I made a friend in the Old City who was an Christian Arab. I just loved to wander around the Old City. It was magical to me. The man was older and an independent Jerusalem tour guide. I don’t remember much about him–only that he was exceptionally kind to me.  And he introduced me to a great cocktail–half fresh carrot juice and half grapefruit juice. He invited me to his family home in the Old City. That is the only Arab home I have ever visited.

Max and I both wish Glenn Beck well during his stay in Israel. May his many friends and the world at large hear his message.
