  • Glenn Beck’s "Restoring Courage" rally in Jerusalem ends with a whimper

    Could a dull event in Jerusalem, in front of just 1,000 people, spell the end of Glenn Beck? It must have been pretty rough for Glenn Beck to see this: After months of preparations, hours of television and radio talk all geared up for the big day, tons of merchandise manufactured, Glenn Beck could just about muster over a thousand people at his “Restoring Courage” last night in Jerusalem. I can’t help but think that this flop might be a lethal blow for this guy. After getting kicked out of FOX and then his decision to veer even farther to…

  • Racism, settlements and Glenn Beck: One pic that says it all

    Joseph Dana twitted this pic from the Glenn Beck rally, which tells most of what you need to know about the current moment here.

    Not to be out-maneuvered by his new partner in the evangelical business, Glenn Beck has decided to raise the stakes in the battle with Pastor John Hagee over who can pander more to the Jews and Israel.

  • WATCH: John Hagee at Glenn Beck event: “I am Israeli!"

    Glenn Beck kicked off his "Restoring Courage" week in Israel last night with a pep rally at the ancient ampitheatre in Caesarea. On Wednesday Beck will hold the main event, inside the Old City of Jerusalem. Last time I was at Caesarea was for an Ehud Banai concert, my idol. And before that for an off-Broadway production of “A Chorus Line”. All three shows sent shivers down my spine, yet for very different reasons. Having Glenn Beck, John Hagee, thousands of pumped, middle-aged and above evangelicals, a few hundred settlers and an Israeli choir singing Holocaust hymns - all on…

  • Are 'supporters' being hired to attend Glenn Beck rally?

    An ad on Janglo seeks people to serve as ambassadors for their countries of origin at Glenn Beck's Restoring Courage rally. Will they get paid? "Depends where you're from" The uber-conservative Christian Zionist commentator Glenn Beck has arrived in Israel. He will hold his “Restoring Courage” rally in Jerusalem on August 24. So it seems like a mighty odd coincidence that a few weeks ago, I found this ad on Janglo: On August 24 2011 there is a huge international event being held in Jerusalem where people are coming to stand with Israel. At the event there are flags from…
