Glenn: I give Israel my support, my praise, and my prayers

On Thursday, the Israeli military launched a ground campaign in Gaza. The campaign follows 10 days of rocket fire with Hamas. The Israeli Defense Force tweeted about the latest phase of “Operation Protective Edge,” validating reports.

Glenn took to his Facebook on Thursday to offer his thoughts and prayers:

On radio this morning, Glenn further explained his support of Israel. He praised Israel’s ability and right to defend itself, and he explained why he does not believe the U.S. should intervene militarily in the conflict.

Below is an edited transcript of the monologue:

I so support what Israel is doing. But I will not go out and fight for Israel. I will help them in moral support every step of the way. Quite honestly, I don't think the Israelis want or need the American troops on the ground. We've become mercenaries, and we come in and screw it up because we say, ‘What the hell are we even doing over here.’

The Israelis will fight because they'll know their lives are at stake. They do know their lives are at stake. I pray for the Palestinians. I pray for the innocent Palestinians. Somebody wrote on a message on my Facebook post, ‘Glenn, there are no innocent Palestinians.’ Yes, there are. I know because I've met many of them. You cannot tell me that all Palestinians hate all Jews, just like I can't tell you that all Jews are peaceful, loving, and don't hate the Palestinians. Most people are the same. Most people just want peace. Most people just want to raise their family. Most people, if you have a western mentality. That's why Israel is generally right.

A western mentality says, ‘We need to uphold life. We need to encourage life. We need to not take life. We need to not be at war. We need to help others.’ The Hamas point of view is, ‘Kill, kill, kill. Kill in the name of God.’ So I pray for the leadership of Hamas to either see the light or be destroyed. They will destroy themselves. Their actions will destroy themselves because they'll become enemies of the natural order of things. They already are.

I give Israel kudos for how they fight. I give them support. I give them my praise. I give them my prayers. The minute that Israel becomes a monster, I don't support them. And I say exactly the same thing about this country. The day we become a monster, my support is gone. And we are dangerously close to becoming a monstrous country. We do not have a right to shove our ideology down other people's throats. We lead by example. We model how the world should look and live: Free and at peace and accepting of other people's lifestyles and religions. As long as you are not killing others, as long as you are not setting out to destroy the lives of others, let's get along. We have to have common principles. And I wonder if we have them anymore. And it's because we have fallen asleep and because we have listened to the military industrial complex.

Look at what's happening over in the Ukraine. It is ethnic strife. Look at what's happening in Europe. It's all starting to fall apart because the UN and the EU started to put everything together and say, ‘This is who you are.’ And what happens? When somebody wants to take over, what do they do? They divide people by their ethnicity. What is happening here in America? ‘You're black, you're white, you're Hispanic. Let's fight.’

It's happening all over the world. And that does not come from God and that does not come from anybody who should be calling themselves as leader. That comes directly from the gates of Hell. The world is at strife because people are dividing themselves by race or creed or color, and that is un-American and anti-American. It must stop.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

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."
