Much of the press reporting on an event designed to show support for Israel during a crucial time has been positive - but leftist hacks weren't going to let that space be occupied by sanity and reason forever. Glenn, the 'bizarre fascist comedian' reads from one of the rare hit jobs on radio today. Check out the clip above to get the details on the latest hit job.
The full transcript from rado is below (video to follow soon):
GLENN: We have this story in the Jerusalem Post today: Glenn Beck rally could spark violence, warns Arab ministers of the knesset. Glenn Beck's Restoring Courage rally at the southern wall excavation site next Wednesday could spark conflagration of violence in Jerusalem. This according to Arab knesset members and activists. Oh, okay.
PAT: Are they saying why or what or --
GLENN: Yeah, they did. They said that this is going to be a three-night attempt to demonstrate to Israel and the world that the Jewish state does not stand alone. There are -- the minister of the knesset said there are enough racists in Israel without importing them from the U.S.
GLENN: Yeah. The lessens from Ariel Sharon to the Temple Mount apparently hasn't taught them anything. This event isn't for building coexistence but to spark fires in a sensitive location ahead of the United Nations vote on the Palestinian State in September. No. No, sir. If you would have had a conversation with me, you would know that is not true. There is danger that the event will lead to people being harmed and the police should have prevented it. Maybe the police should stop the bad guys. The minister Ahmed Tal called Beck a bizarre conservative neo-Fascist comedian who is motivated only by his hatred of Islam
PAT: Well, he got you there.
GLENN: They got me every time
PAT: He got you there. Wow. He sees right through you.
GLENN: He really does.
PAT: How well does he know you? You-guys go back.
GLENN: By the way, thank you for calling me a comedian. I appreciate that. They accused Danny Damone who is -- he's kind of like -- I don't know -- a good John Boehner
GLENN: Who is involved in Beck's event -- no, he's not -- of dancing to Beck's flute playing. They got me again. They didn't check my flute at customs. I thought -- maybe they got it on camera. I put Danny in a basket and I've been playing the flute and he comes out like a snake. It's really quite neat
PAT: I will say it is difficult not to dance to your flute because you are so good at it.
GLENN: I am
PAT: When you start whaling on that thing, oh, yeah.
GLENN: There is a message in the location, especially to come to the city of David
GLENN: That is to close to Al-Aqsa and other Muslim holy sites and the western wall. It says a lot, says a member of the popular committee of Al Bustan, one of the neighbors in Salon. I don't know him but I know one thing, this area belongs to all religions.
PAT: Then what's the problem?
GLENN: Yes, you're right.
GLENN: You're exactly right. Shafa expressed concern that the event would attempt to erase parts of the historical narrative that hold -- that the holy site is holy to Jews, Christians, and Muslims
PAT: No. Wait. They've accused us with somebody else that is trying to change history. That's not our dig.
GLENN: What do you mean?
PAT: There's somebody else that wants to change history and that's --
MICHELLE OBAMA: Change our conversation. We're going to have to change our traditions, our history. We're going to have to move into a different place.
GLENN: Yeah, but she's not coming
PAT: That's Michelle Obama. She's not coming. So, she can't changed our history.
GLENN: He says the event will attempt to erase historic narrative that hold that the site is holy to Jews, Christians, and Muslim. Why are we the smallest people? Is their God bigger than ours?
PAT: Our God's bigger than your God. Our God's bigger than yours.
GLENN: No. It doesn't work that way. No. You know, I don't know if they know this. God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
PAT: Just the one.
GLENN: Same cat
GLENN: Same guy.
GLENN: And gee, it's interesting that these guys know. You know what's really interesting, honestly it is -- I had to say -- this is my quote in the Jerusalem Post. In an interview with the Jerusalem Post on Wednesday, Beck advised -- see, this sounds familiar -- Beck advised his critics to watch the event before casting judgment.
PAT: What a concept.
GLENN: I know. That's really --
GLENN: They don't even judge a book by its cover. They don't even wait for the cover to come out
GLENN: They're like book, bad, fire! Israel's control over Jerusalem is the best thing that has happened to many people's live among the Arabs that I have met, even though they won't say it on camera. They are protected, they are safe, and they are able to live without violence. Israel has done an amazing ob of adhering to love thy neighbor and even love thy enemy. It's hard when people are trying to kill you to protect their rights. Jerusalem is an example of coexistence working. You can't deny the truth, Beck said.
Yep. So, it's another -- it's another bright and banner day here in Happyville where people are intent on doing exactly what happened last year at the Restoring Honor event where we had the Black Panthers threaten and say that they were going to cause trouble. They were going to meet me on the mall.
GLENN: I'm glad they didn't show up because I really didn't want to meet them and it wouldn't have been good and there's -- there's -- you know, really people should watch the first opening few minutes before they start to say that I'm not recognizing the history of the area, should watch the first few minutes but c'est la vie.
