Glenn Beck Announces Plans to Meddle in Middle East

Raving freakazoid to rave in Israel

This is just what the Middle East needs right now: Glenn Beck Announces ‘Restoring Courage’ Event In Jerusalem, Says ‘The Very Gates Of Hell Are Gonna Open Up Against Us’.

Terrific. Beck’s brand of high volume race-baiting and End Times paranoia ought to do wonders for the Israel-Palestinian conflict.

The situation is volatile enough without Glenn Beck coming over to stir shit up. He should get the same treatment as the "Gaza Flotilla" busybodies.

2 Obdicut  Mon, May 16, 2011 9:50:42am

So, given that he said the very gates of hell will try to stop him, if the Israelis decide to deny him a permit, does that mean they're satanic?

Beck is likely to find that Israel doesn't tend to grant entry to end-times kooks. He'll always find fertile ground here in the USA though :(

I actually think that Beck's influence here is rather small. He's bombastic and good at creating headlines in the US, but I don't think the Israelis will take a shine to him, and they've got plenty of experience in dealing with End Times quackery.

20 elizajane  Mon, May 16, 2011 9:59:45am

This just makes me really angry.
I think that some people need to be reminded that Israel is actually another country and that, whatever your feelings about Jews, Ay-rabs, End Times etc, you do not have the right to go there as an American citizen and actively meddle with their politics.

What if some Germans, or Chinese, wanted to hold a "Restoring Sanity" rally in Washington DC? However justified their cause, people might kind of object.

the Israelis need to tell him that although they believe his intentions are good, the timing is bad. If he really wants to be a force for good in the region, he needs to take heed of that. And if the Israelis ask him nicely and he pushes back too hard, then we will know his intentions are not good.

I'm sure most Israelis have never heard of him. The show is in English, and is mostly about American issues. I'm sure some of the Anglim listen, or at the least approve--some of them have got bitten by the ODS bug.

Glenn beck is not going to make a whole lot of money taking people to israel in august. It is hotter than hades in august, and i doubt his followers will go. So, i do not think it is about him and the money. He has an empire of stuff from websites, to radio, to tv (well, for a few months), to books (who reads that stuff).

I just do not understand what happened to this site - I went to a CUFI dinner and someone said that LGF was not what it was, i said, give me a break, CJ is one of Israel's most tried and true supporters, and now i see a lead post taking the piss out of glenn beck for going to israel. There are a million (no, about 5 million) ways to take the piss out of glenn beck. His leading a mission to israel is not one of them IMHO.

Maybe you should consider that the reason I'm criticizing Glenn Beck is precisely because I AM a supporter of Israel.

Beck is bad news. Israel doesn't need the kind of "support" Glenn Beck is bringing.

What treatment did the Gaza Flotilla busybodies get?

The Gaza flotilla raid also known as the flotilla incident of 31 May 2010,[5] was a military operation by Israel against six ships of the "Gaza Freedom Flotilla" on May 31, 2010 in international waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The flotilla, organized by the Free Gaza Movement and the Turkish Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief (İHH), was carrying humanitarian aid and construction materials,with the intention of breaking Israel's blockade of the Gaza Strip.[6][7][8] On 31 May 2010, Israeli Shayetet 13 naval commandos boarded the ships from speedboats and helicopters. On the MV Mavi Marmara, clashes broke out after activists violently resisted. Nine activists were killed (Eight Turkish nationals and a Turkish-American), and dozens of activists and seven Israeli commandos were wounded.

Those 'activists' came armed to the teeth, and ready to violently resist being turned away from the blockade.

Because you suggested Allouette was promoting violence.

The majority of the Gaza Flotilla was boarded and not allowed to land. Only the ship that violently resisted resulted in violence; the protesters began the violence.

So, no, Alouette is not promoting violence.

Yes. That he should be prevented from entering Israel or Gaza.

You do realize the Gaza Flotilla was made up of far more than those who violently resisted, right? That most were simply prevented, non-violently, from entering Gaza and running the blockade?

He couldn't come by plane if they disallowed him. He'd have to come by boat, or overland.

And yes, if Beck attempted to take a boat to Israel after they'd forbidden him to, I'd expect him to be boarded and arrested, and the people doing it would be armed.

.

Then why not try listening to what I'm saying, so that you can understand?

Alouette said that they should get the same treatment as the "Gaza Flotilla" busybodies.

Here's how the Gaza Flotilla busibodies were treated:

They were told they could not land.

When they proceeded anyway, they were told they would all have to be inspected by Israeli forced.

They refused this, and indicated they would continue to run the brigade.

The Israelis boarded the ships, taking over most of them with no violence, and responding when attacked on board one ship.

Now, I have no problem, at all, with Glen Beck being treated like that. If he's told he can't come to Israel, and he charters a boat anyway, he should be boarded by the Israelis. If he were insane enough to attack the Israeli commandos, I'd expect them to respond in kind.

The majority of the Israeli response to the Gaza Flotilla involved no violence. Of the part that did involve violence, they were not the initiators of that violence.

So seeing it as a promotion of violence is incorrect.

I'm really trying not to pick fights with you that I don't have to tho', so I'll let it go at that and quit bugging you about it

I'm not asking you to, nor do I want you to, let it go. Just don't do it in a pointlessly insulting fashion.

Out of all the posible stories of restricting Becks access, this was a good example?

After all I've read from you, I don't think you would have chosen it.

When the dust settles on the Flottila story, all those alive will have a story and their own remembrances. However, those who died will still be dead, their families will still mourn.

I suggest if you asked people about the Flottila story, the deaths will be what is remembered.

I would also suggest for those who peruse LGF, it could lead to a lot of misunderstanding.

I think it was a good example in that Beck deserves the same treatment, though he'd describe himself as pro-Israel, as those on the Gaza Flotilla: to be treated as a gigantic security risk. To me, it was a pointed dismissal of Beck's portrayal of himself as pro-Israel.

After all I've read from you, I don't think you would have chosen it.

What does that have to do with anything? The specific accusation made wasn't "It's not a great example", but that it was promoting violence. And that is false.


I suggest if you asked people about the Flottila story, the deaths will be what is remembered.

I would also suggest for those who peruse LGF, it could lead to a lot of misunderstanding.

If someone reads LGF, then they should know the full Gaza Flotilla story. If they don't, and they happen on that one comment by Alouette rather than, say, the numerous stories about the flotilla or the many other posts about the flotilla, then sure, it could cause a 'misunderstanding'. That misunderstanding would not be Alouette's fault in any way, shape, or form. The fact that the story will become distorted and faded into memory is not something that I really want to cater to.

I will note your goalposts have shifted from "that's promoting violence" to "if you don't remember the details of the incident, then one could interpret that as promoting violence".

I think the allegation that someone is promoting violence is an intense one. I have always stuck up for anyone accused of being anti-Israel solely because they were critical of Israel, because I think it's a terrible accusation. I think the accusation of promoting violence is a heavy one as well and you shouldn't be surprised that I take umbrage at it.

As a cultural Mormon and someone who holds a uniquely deep antipathy to Glenn Beck's odious brand of paranoid carnival barking, I feel the need to and this: ~~Glenn Beck is now entering his delusional martyr phase~~

It should be clear as day that Glenn Beck has taken his conservative quasi-religious political messiah act to it's (il)logical conclusion: Glenn Beck wants to usher in his particular end times theory of choice. Really. This is Glenn Beck's crazy self-delusion about his supposed importance, as much as it was the delusion of Bin Laden, or the crazy aspiration for the appearance of the Mahdi in Iran.

As of this day, the LDS Church and its more disciplined non-celebrity members have wisely avoided any attempt to proselytize in Israel & the Middle East. However, in Mormon theology, the end times will start when two messengers, supposedly some form of Mormon spokesperson will be assassinated in Jerusalem, ushering in the Great Final Battle that ends the world.

Beck is trying to be a lightning rod in Jerusalem in his (wrongly) supposed apocalyptic end times scenario that Mormon's believe will pit Mormons, Christians & Jews against the forces of evil, presumably Muslims and Atheists and other "wicked" people.

Since he can't outright preach religion, he has decided to do the next best thing. Try to be a spokesperson for this political ideology instead. His political style is a deranged combo of new-found religious surety and the intellectual sensibilities of a chimp who is willing to go to Jerusalem to preach his partisan political "gospel" that has no business being there. It was bad enough when Beck had a national audience. He now wants to preach it globally, starting in the worst possible place imaginable.

I truly hope he doesn't go thru with this. The situation is volatile enough without Beck exporting his crazy Tea Party clown act to Jerusalem, a city with enough problems of its own without delusional Mormon converts inserting his clearly ignorant self into a firestorm. Why won't any church higher up rein him in or forbid him to do such a clearly stupid thing? Or do they support such a wrong headed act? Would the Israeli government even allow such a gathering? I highly doubt it. Beck imagines he has liberties in a land where he as a non-citizen has no right to organize a protest. His ignorance of the world extends to the global stage.

What. The. Fuck. Glenn? Your sheer ignorance boggles my mind.

Please, for the love of all things holy, please go away Glenn. You are not the answer to the worlds ills. When you are too toxic even for Roger Ailes, maybe you should reconsider your course.

re: #11 Killgore Trout

Will Geert Wilders and Phillip Dewinter be featured? Maybe even the EDL?

Speaking of Geert the Hair Helmet, his ass was just here in Nashville last week speaking at a megachurch a few miles away from my house (as well as a meet-and-greet at the Williamson County GOP office and a guest slot on local "conservative" Steve Gill's show). Too bad I was at work when this was going on; I didn't even know he was in town until I was at work that day.
