Terrorists cross Sinai into Israel

Reportedly, the Muslim Brotherhood won the Egyptian presidential runoff was this weekend – official results will be released Thursday – and already there has been at attack on Israel.

Earlier this morning TheBlaze.com reported that militants crossed the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt into southern Israel and opened fire on civilians that were building a border security fence. At least one of the Israel workers were killed, two assailants died, and Israeli troops have responded to the attack. They conducted an air strike that killed that killed two men riding a motorcycle in the northern Gaza strip near the Israeli border.  Glenn told listeners this morning that an Islamic jihad militant group has said that the men were members of a reconnaissance mission and vowed revenge.

“So, I don't know if this is a I don't know if is this a big is this a big deal?” Glenn said sarcastically. “What, the elections happened yesterday, the Muslim Brotherhood, who Barack Obama is for, Muslim Brotherhood won in Parliament. Of course, parliament has been suspended now – is that a problem for anybody?”

The mainstream media and the Obama Administration have been referring to the Muslim Brotherhood as “peaceful and mostly secular” and the “Arab Spring” as a peaceful democratic revolution – both of which were, as no surprise to Glenn, a huge miss.

The Egyptian military has essentially seized power supposedly temporarily, and troops are surrounding the Parliament building. Glenn explained to listeners that the Muslim Brotherhood’s response to this has been to basically go off and start their own thing.

“The new president of Egypt said, ‘hey guess what we’re going to have to do? A Muslim caliphate and it’s going to have its capital in Jerusalem.’ Today we have people crossing the Sinai,” Glenn explained. “1967 sounds awfully darn familiar, doesn’t it?”

Glenn, who was mocked by the mainstream media on both the right and the left, predicted that the Muslim Brotherhood would end up in power after the Arab Spring swept through Egypt over a year ago. Glenn walked listeners through the history of Israel in the 1960’s and the Six Day War on their border.

“This is all being replayed, gang,” Glenn said. “What they've learned in the 1960s, the whole world learned this, is you have to have America down. If you can get America and the west so apart from its own morals and its own standards and its own self, if you can have that away from the scenario, if you can cripple them financially, spiritually, morally, ethically, we win. So that's what they're doing. They tried to do it in the 1960s and it was the Six Day War. They tried to do it in the 1970s. It was the overthrow of the shah of Iran. They're trying to do it now.”

Also noting that Russia is back in the mix, Glenn compared the other attempts Islamists have made to take on Israel have occurred under president’s similar to President Obama – LBJ and Jimmy Carter. He also noted one other thing history has taught us – Israel will push back.

Glenn explained how through history enemies of Israel have tried to wipe them off the map. They still stand, and they’re stronger. Israel took care of business in the Six Day War, and they’ll clean everybody’s clock again. “They’re actually fighting for something,” Glenn said.

“If you look at the history of the Six Day War, hmmm.  It seems like was somebody was outnumbered and outgunned,” Pat said sarcastically, noting that Israel was completely outnumbered the last time they defeated their enemies.

“They were surrounded.  It was amazing,” Glenn added.

Glenn has been very vocal the past few years about his support for Israel and what he believes they’re up against. He, like many, believes that Israel has overcome insane odds throughout history because of one things and one thing only – God.

Israel is completely surrounded by enemies – Iran, Syria, Egypt, the list goes on – and America isn’t in a good position. Glenn explained that if Russia gets involved, and they are looking more and more every day like they are because of their dealings with Syria, they will not be a friend to Israel. He went on to explain that the decision that was made in Greece over the weekend was a blessing.

“It gave us more time before the economy of the world just implodes over in Europe.  Because it's going to happen,” Glenn said referring to the economic storm coming out way. “Where will we be?”

Glenn urged listeners to pay attention to everything that is going on in the news, and be aware of how fast not just darkness is spreading, but forces for good are as well.

“Where are you supposed to be standing?  Why has this extra time been given to us?  What is it we're supposed to do with it?” Glenn asked.  “I would ask urgently that you would ask that of yourself, that you would ask that of your family, you would ask that in prayer:  What is it?  Why have I been given extra time here?  What is it we're supposed to do?  Because the plane was supposed to come down in the trees this week.  Why didn't it?  Divine providence?  There's always a reason.  Look for it.”

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
