Beck to address Knesset committee
Right-wing radio talk show host Glenn Beck will address a Knesset committee during an upcoming visit to Israel.
Beck will discuss how to fight the delegitimization of Israel around the world during a July 11 meeting of the Knesset Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs Committee, at the invitation of committee chairman Danny Danon of the Likud Party, the Jerusalem Post reported Tuesday.
The meeting reportedly will focus on the September meeting of the United Nations General Assembly, when the Palestinians say they will ask for recognition of a Palestinian state.
Beck’s July visit, including his address to the Knesset committee, will be filmed for Beck’s on-line show, which will be used to promote his announced ‘Restoring Courage’ rally to be held in Jerusalem in late August.
Former Godfathers’ pizza CEO and 2012 presidential candidate Herman Cain and Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) have said they will attend the rally.
The Jerusalem Post reported that Beck will visit Tamar Fogel, whose parents and three of her siblings were killed by Palestinian terrorists as they slept in their home in the West Bank community of Itamar. Beck devoted segments on three days of his Fox show to the incident in the wake of the massacre and spoke admiringly of Tamar.
