Godspeed to Jerusalem, Glenn Beck
By LARRY DERFNER
06/15/2011 23:58


The American Right and Israeli Right have become the closest, most natural of allies.

The Glenn Beck rally in Jerusalem for Israel, or at least for everything thats lousy about Israel, is taking shape. According to Wednesdays Yediot Aharonot, the rally has a name Restoring Courage. Also a date August 24. Also a place, or places the Old City and Teddy Stadium. Also, tentatively, some guests of honor Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann and Mike Huckabee.

Itll be sort of a GOP/Tea Party convention, only in Jerusalem, with thousands of godly Americans expected to fly in to join tens of thousands of godly Israelis, with free admission, snacks and drinks, fireworks and pop stars. So far theres been no word about Koran-burnings, but the programs final touches are still a way off.

Likud MK Danny Danon, who chaperoned Palin on her recent visit here, and who recently remarked that President Barack Hussein Obama adopted the phased plan of Arafat, is handling the Israeli side of things. Beck and his friends will be welcomed by their Knesset admirers, who will be returning the favor for the way the GOP-led Congress welcomed Bibi.

There will be lots of tears and solemn oaths to God, Judea and Samaria, Jerusalem, the Temple Mount and Judeo-Christendom. Since its going to be televised across America, where theres an election next year, my guess is that theyll soft-pedal the crazy stuff the birther business, the conspiracy theories, the comparisons with Hitler and Stalin, the really overt, ghastly expressions of Muslim-hatred.

But the Glenn Beck rally, I believe, will be a historic event for this country and how it is seen in the US especially by American Jews. This pyrotechnic spectacle will light up the sky with a truth thats been obvious for a long time, but that is still taboo to say out loud: Israel and Americas right-wing meshuggenehs are of one mind.

2. Glenn Beck's Jerusalem Rally: GOP Presidential Candidates Not Planning To Attend, Despite Report
Are Republican 2012 presidential candidates Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, and Newt Gingrich really heading to Jerusalem in August for Glenn Beck's "Restoring Courage" rally? What about Fox News stars Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee?

Ynetnews, an Israeli news site, reported Wednesday that these five prominent Republicans were "expected" to attend Beck's Aug. 24 gathering, news that immediately bounced around Twitter and the blogosphere.

Yet despite the report that Beck's rally is set to draw a 'who's who' among the Republican presidential field, those named don't seem to have plans to attend.
