"The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a stage towards the destruction of Israel and the West"- Glenn Beck addresses Israel's Knesset

Introduced by Deputy Speaker of the Knesset, Danny Danon (MK- Likud), Glenn Beck expresses concern that the commotion over his outspoken support for Israel represents a disconcerting, anti-Semitic atmosphere in the West.

The Jerusalem Post reports:
In his classic simplified yet brazen style, the pundit explained "the few things I actually know" about Israel:

1) The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is about destruction of Israel and the West.

2) Anti-semitism is going to go through the roof. When these conditions appear, it's always the Jews fault. It's not about the holocaust, (that's) just the latest in a string of events thousands of years. Holocaust is just the one they made a movie about. It was the same way all the time.

3) The world is about to change, so think differently. Everything you thought you can count on, forget about it, (and) create new systems.

4) The truth shall set you free.

Beck then explained that his plan for Israel advocacy is based on communal outreach. "If you go to a synagogue, reach out to a church. If you go to a church, reach out to a JCC. Say, will you watch this with me? After that we'll talk and eat and get to know one another."

The conservative American pundit also discussed his trip to Auschwitz, and his upcoming documentary about it. He applauded the courage of the Israeli populace, the bravery and resilience of the Jewish people, and the humbling experiences he has every time he visits Israel.

After his speech a long list of MK's thanked Beck for his presence and his support, including Nissim Ze'ev, Ayoub Kara, Einat Wilf, Michael Ben-Ari, and Yulia Shalom-Berkovich, to name a few.

At the end of the talk, Marina Solodkin asked Beck to send George W. Bush her love and to ask US President Obama to free Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard.

To close, Beck said that Israel advocacy was more important than his usual work back in the states. "As a man who also worships the one God, in the times that we live in, it is clear that what is going on is God's work. If we are silent, evil will win. But if we stand up and take charge, God will do the rest."

Beck has visited Israel periodically since he his first trip in 2002, but this is the only time he has addressed the Knesset.
