'This is a very serious situation': Gen. Boykin explains the danger of rising tensions in Israel

On Tuesday's Glenn Beck Program, TheBlaze's national security editor Buck Sexton spoke to retired U.S. Army Lieutenant General William "Jerry" Boykin about the rising tensions in Israel. General Boykin explained that in the aftermath of the kidnapping and killing of three Israeli teenagers last month, Israel is getting to the "end of the line" with Hamas and the growing violence is a "serious" and "dangerous" situation.

As TheBlaze reported, Israel has launched a new round of airstrikes and is considering a ground invasion of the Gaza Strip to stop Hamas from launching even more rocket attacks. According to reports, the Israeli military has hit at least 100 sites, while Hamas launched 80 rockets into Israel on Tuesday alone. Based on what he saw on the ground in Israel, he believes a ground campaign in Gaza is more and more likely each day.

"I think that the Israelis in general are getting to the point where they are at the end of the line with regards to Hamas," Gen. Boykin said. "[T]his is a very serious situation, and I believe that there is a very strong probability that there will be a ground campaign in Gaza which the Israelis do not want to do. But when they make the kind of announcements and espouse the kind of rhetoric that we are hearing now… that is very serious."

What makes Hamas unique is it is not simply a paramilitary organization or terrorist group. It is a political movement that has won free elections in the Gaza Strip. With that in mind, Gen. Boykin believes Israel will try to go after as much of the Hamas leadership as possible.

"I think the Israelis will try to do is they will try to deal a lethal blow to the paramilitary capabilities of Hamas," he said. "I think they’ll try to take out as much of the leadership of the, again, the paramilitary ranks as they can… They’ll go after anything that enhances their abilities to fire rockets and missiles or to conduct direct attacks on Israel."

Ultimately, Israel understands the United States will not be a trusted ally in this fight that Gen. Boykin believes will spread across the already unstable Middle East region. While the Obama Administration is averse to lending support to the country, Gen. Boykin believes the majority of Congress is still pro-Israel, which could lead to a clash at some point in the near future.

"If the situation continues to deteriorate there you could have a Congress that is pushing for support of Israel, and I think you could have an Administration that is trying to hold back," he concluded. "And ultimately, to be honest with you, I think the Congress wins that fight. So I think that there would be a higher level of support than the Administration’s comfortable with."

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.
