Glenn Beck Jerusalem Restoring Courage Fogel Family

Glenn arrived in Israel this weekend in preparation of the much anticipated Restoring Courage rally and he will be broadcasting from Jerusalem all week.

During his radio program Monday, Glenn spoke of the various events that will be part of Restoring Courage, including a Christian-centered gathering Sunday, followed by a “Courage to Remember” event focused on the  past and future, leading up to the larger Restoring Courage rally Wednesday at the southern steps of Solomon’s Temple Mount.

Glenn asked his listeners if they will “stand up” and have the courage and stamina to look for the truth.  Part of that truth-telling, for Glenn, was making the Fogel family household one of his first stops in Israel.  Five members of the Fogel family, including a three year old child were savagely stabbed to death by an 18-year old Palestinian named Hakim Awad.

Glenn spoke poignantly about the experience:

“I went to Itamar in Judea and Samaria, and I… our cameras were the first to be allowed into the home.  It is empty now and they are ‑‑ they couldn’t get all of the blood off the walls.  I will tell you, this was one of the most horrific, bloodiest massacres I could imagine.  It was horrifying, horrifying.  And yet in that community, profound hope.”

“If you stand in their backyard, you can see the two mountains:  The Mountain of Blessing and the Mountain of Curse.  It is the ‑‑ it is scriptural.  Which do you choose?  The mountain of blessing or curse.  And this community has both.  I can’t believe what people go through here in Israel, and the world stays silent.  The media is distorting and lying, lying to you.  Lying to you.  And it is important that you know it.”

“We will bring you many, many things in the next 14 days that you will not see anywhere else.  When you see what we were doing on GBTV, you will ‑‑ you will know why I left cable news.  Because no one, no one who runs a business that cares about political correctness or sponsors or anything else would do it.  Nobody be would do it.  My relationship is with you.  We’ll tell you the truth.  To hell with the consequences.  You don’t like it, cancel your subscription.  You do like it, tell a friend.  Tell a friend.  The truth shall set you free.”
