Glenn Beck to hold Jerusalem rally


Glenn Beck said he plans to hold a rally in Jerusalem to promote solidarity with Israel.

The right-wing talk show provocateur, who paid a surprise visit to Israel last week, announced Monday on his website that he wanted to “show the world what living a life of faith and honor really means.”

“Now more than ever it is imperative that we live with conviction and do the right thing,” the announcement said. “It is time for us to courageously stand with Israel.”

Beck last summer drew major crowds to Washington for a rally to “restore honor.” The Jerusalem rally, scheduled for Aug. 20, would be to “restore courage.”

Beck, who is ardently pro-Israel, nonetheless angered an array of Jewish groups recently for likening the quest for “social justice” to Nazism and for falsely insinuating that liberal philanthropist and Holocaust survivor George Soros was a Nazi collaborator.

Beck revealed last month that he will be leaving the Fox News Channel later this year.
