"Restoring Courage" - Glenn Beck Launches A Week Of Rally Events From Israel

Last year before the 2010 elections, those who were paying attention to movements in our American Culture were treated to an exhibition of the power of like-minded people gathering just to recognize and affirm that this American concept of self-rule was still alive.

Glenn Beck held a rally entitled "Restoring Honor" on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, situated at one end of an area in Washington D.C. known as The Mall. On August 28, 2010, people came from all over the country to stand and listen to Glenn Beck and others talk about Restoring Honor and raise money for scholarships to be applied to the children left behind by their fathers who had died defending our country.

What was one of the most amazing elements of this Restoring Honor (honor equals TRUTH) rally is that it was estimated, through aerial photography of The Mall, that this crowd of like-minded people gathered around the Reflecting Pool and the adjacent open field was at least 500,000 people strong.

This year, Glenn Beck has taken his awareness show on the road, as it were, to Israel in the form of a week of themed presentation/rallies entitled "Restoring Courage". Glenn announced this effort soon after he split with Fox News and it is suspected that this world outreach effort may have been the main point of the split between the news channel and the one hour daily program they aired featuring Glenn Beck. Roger Ailes, the General Manager and one of the architects of Fox News, stated at the time that they wanted to broadcast ... personalities that wanted to deliver a daily hour show on a weekly basis.

The event, “Restoring Courage,” serves as a step forward from last summer’s “Restoring Honor” rally held on 8/28 in Washington, D.C.

Said Glenn Beck at the time of the announcement -

“I believe I’ve been asked to stand — in Jerusalem,” Beck told his audience recounting a list of times in history when people and nations failed to stand with the Jewish people. Beck explained, as he has often in the last year, how the life and thinking of the German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer has influenced him: “He asked people to stand for the Jewish people.” He told of Bonhoeffer’s call for pastors to stand with him. Only six did.

Beck detailed current challenges facing the nation — “Things in Israel are going to get bad…it’s only a matter of time.”

“They are going to attack the center of our faith, our common faith, and that is Jerusalem. And it won’t be with bullets or bombs. It will be with a two-state solution that cuts off Jerusalem, the old city, to the rest of the world.”

“It is time to return inside the walls that surround Jerusalem and stand with people of all faiths all around the world.”

The "Restoring Courage" week of presentations and gatherings will be broadcast on GBTV, a subscription internet television service. Last night, as the sun eased it’s way into the Mediterranean horizon, Glenn Beck greeted an enthusiastic crowd of over 3,000 at the Caesarea Amphitheater: “Welcome to the land of milk and honey!”

Beck’s week of “Restoring Courage” events began Sunday with a religiously themed evening entitled “The Courage to Love.”
