Did the US Consulate in Jerusalem warn American citizens not to attend the Restoring Courage event in Israel? The Blaze has done some digging and it certainly looks that way. Glenn reacted on radio this morning.
“The United States is the safest place in the world but I'm telling you now there is a global darkness that is coming. If we don't stand. If we don't stand together,” Glenn warned.
The Blaze reports, “The timing and specifics of the event warning have led some to claim that ideological opposition to the Beck event– not just concerns for American safety– could have influenced the decision.”
The Blaze also found that the Consulate’s website warned:
“The U.S. Consulate General in Jerusalem notes that, according to local security sources, Jerusalem is under a heightened Security Alert. The police have established roadblocks in various sections of the city and increased their personnel on the streets. Vehicle inspections are being conducted, and suspicious individuals and bags are receiving further scrutiny.
U.S. citizens in Jerusalem are advised to exercise extra vigilance and avoid large crowds during upcoming rallies and religious holidays, particularly in and around Jerusalem’s Old City.
On Wednesday, August 24, 2011, there will be a rally held near the south east corner of the Old City. The areas between Dung Gate and Lions Gate are off-limits to official U.S. Government personnel from 4:00pm until 10:00pm on that day due to recent clashes in that area.”
“This is nudge,” Glenn warned.
“You're being nudged. You're being played. Our college students are being played as useful idiots. And it's because we didn't teach our kids responsibility. With rights come responsibilities, and we must make up for lost time.”
