How has Hamas gained favor in the media?

I want to start with the latest round of violence in Gaza. For two weeks, the fighting has raged. There is no clear end in sight. Over 500 now are dead, and the media is trying to make this so complex, but it’s really, really easy. Here it is: For Israel, they have a right to defend themselves from extremists who want to kill the Jews and wipe them off the face of the map.

That’s it, it’s that simple, but people get confused and led astray by the rhetoric and everything else. For example, according to Hamas supporters, this Palestinian-American that I’m going to show you here was at a protest in San Francisco, and listen to what he said.

It is about humanity, if anything, to save the people of Palestine. We’re all humans. We’re all children of God.

We are, and I believe that 100%. So let’s test the theory versus the facts on the ground. Are we looking at people who, Hamas, I’m not talking about the Palestinians. Hamas, are they humans? Do they all believe we are humans?

Over the weekend, the military wing of Hamas announced that they had taken an Israeli soldier prisoner. Here is how these children of God reacted.

Really? The only thing worth celebrating in war is when it ends. Now that’s how humans and children of God view war. Sometimes it’s necessary. It is always tragic on both sides. But Hamas does not hold the same view. They do not value all life.

In 2012, Hamas executed six Israelis they deemed as spies, and they celebrated as they dragged the dead bodies through the streets. May I ask you, is this human? Is this human? Is this how children of – are these children of God? Answer yes, are they behaving like children of God? Can you imagine living in a country that was doing this?

The worst enemy of our nation in my lifetime was Osama bin Laden. He was shown, I believe, undeserved respect in death, but we did it because we’re human. I’d say this reaction is animalistic, but even animals don’t do this to other animals.

Hamas is in a league entirely of their own, and yet somehow they have gained favor in the media. Sympathetic reporters refer to Israelis as scum. Protesters are lauded as pro-Palestinian when in reality it’s not pro-Palestinian, it is anti-Israel. They will not stop until Israel is wiped off the map. That’s in their charter.

Reuters benignly said these protesters rallied across France this weekend. Reuters, don’t even start with the number of corrections you have to make through this weekend. This is not a rally. This was a riot. They left a trail of violence including torching of cars, clashing with the police. They were looting Jewish stores. It’s like calling Kristallnacht a rally. No.

They continue to highlight the plight of the Palestinian. Meanwhile, Hamas digs smuggling tunnels directly underneath its civilian population. Even the president has said Israel has a right to go in and get these tunnels, but they’re underneath the civilians. Israel cannot stop the flow of terrorists and rockets with airstrikes alone. Actually, let me correct that. Actually they could, but they would have to wipe out everybody in Gaza, reduce it to rubble.

Not only do they not want to do that because of public reaction, they don’t want to do that because they value life. They could, but they do not.

Instead, they have to launch a risky ground invasion. Instead of doing it from the sky, they go in on the ground, and as a result 13 Israeli soldiers were killed in an operation Sunday. Among those 13 Israelis who died yesterday were two Americans, the first Americans to die in this conflict, 24 and 21 years old. They grew up in America, went to Israel, and joined the IDF. They’re dead.

Now, this is truly amazing, these two that were dead, this is truly amazing, I believe, because this has happened before, where Americans say you know what, I’ve got to stop, I’ve got to stop this. This is a Spitfire made out of, I can’t remember the name of the kind of plastic, but this plastic is what actually was in the cockpit, the window that the Spitfire was made. And it was a new kind of plastic.

This Spitfire was the Spitfire what was used in the Battle of Britain in 1940. Before America joined the war, Great Britain was. Well, this particular Spitfire was given as a gift to the guy who flew this Spitfire. He was an American. He was actually the first American that died in World War II that was Jewish. He was in early because he saw the injustice and he saw what was happening in Germany, the first American, Jewish-American, that died in World War II.

This weekend, the same thing happen again, and it all started when Hamas abducted and brutally executed three Israeli teenagers near the Green Line borders. How do you abduct, and they do this all the time, abduct and kill innocents? Is that human? Is that children of God?

Now, the media ignores all the evils of Hamas, including their own written charter and their own words.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
