“…UNEASINESS IN THE (JEWISH) COMMUNITY WITH EVANGELICAL (GLENN BECK’S) SUPPORT ,” SAYS ABRAHAM FOXMAN.

Mixed feelings are expressed in CNN article about Glenn Beck’s visit to Israel. Personally, it is music to my ears to hear someone speaking on the side of Israel and the Jewish people. But it’s a little scary when it’s Beck, given some of the things he says and some of his ultra-conservative supporters. I hear you, Abraham Foxman: “There’s an uneasiness in the community with evangelical support. But as long as the support is not conditioned on American Jewish support for the conservative Christian political agenda, or on us converting, they can be my guest.”

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.
