"They'll stop at nothing": The very simple problem at the heart of the Israel/Gaza conflict

It's clear that the Middle East is a war zone, and the media has been taken avery one-sided approach in how it has told the story of the conflict. For decades, America and Israel were the closest of allies. While no one wants to see the innocent people in Gaza suffer because their leadership is dedicated to the destruction of Israel, we also have to recognize that Israel has a right to exist and to defend itself. But in the media, Israel is the bully. How did that happen? And what should the United States be doing to end this conflict, support our democratic allies, and protect the innocent people on both sides of the conflict? Caroline Glick, writer for the Jerusalem Post and author of The Israeli Solution, joined Glenn to discuss the Israel/Gaza conflict on TheBlaze TV.

"The reality is that none of the Arab conflict with Israel, the Islamic conflict with Israel, the Palestinian conflict with Israel, has ever been about territory.  It’s always been about a desire on the part of Israel’s neighbors to annihilate the Jewish state, to prevent it from even being established, you know, years ago in 1948.  And so it’s never been about land, and it’s never been about how much land Israel has," Glick explained. "It’s just about whether or not Israel exists."

"And so when people say oh, it’s Israel’s fault, it’s Israel’s fault only to the extent that Israel exists, no matter how large Israel is or how small Israel is.  And we see with Hamas that are willing and forcing their people really to sacrifice their own lives in order to protect Hamas missiles that are being used to barrage Israeli cities.  They’ll stop at nothing," she continued.

"It’s not that they want to build anything.  They took the cement that they used to build the tunnels that IDF forces, Israeli military forces, have been destroying over the past several weeks, could have built 100 schools, three hospitals, numerous clinic, you know, you name it.  It was there for the taking.  They were there, they got all of this concrete in order to build Gaza.  They claimed it was for humanitarian assistance, and they used all of it to build machinery of death and murder."

So what should the United States be doing? First and foremost, Washington needs to rethink their approach to foreign policy and willingness to push a cease-fire resulting in open borders for Gaza.

"The Obama administration since Gaza, since the Hamas terrorists who run Gaza began their current round of assaults against Israel with their missiles and with their attempted infiltration through their tunnels of death, the Obama administration has been shooting for a cease-fire that would abide by all of Hamas’s extortionist demands of Israel," Glick said.

"And the most important demand that they have of Israel is that they want their borders opened.  Those borders have been sealed, particularly the most importantly the border with Egypt, for the past year since the Egyptian military overthrew the Muslim Brotherhood government there, because the Egyptian military understands Hamas is part of the Muslim Brotherhood, and if they’re allowed free entryway and exit from Gaza and transport from Gaza into Egypt, then it is a strategic threat to Egypt."

Glick urged the American people to call their congressmen and encourage them to stand with Israel and keep the borders of Gaza closed so the threats of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood can't continue to spread.

"I think the most important thing that Americans can do is side with Israel by telling their congressmen, by telling their communities, by explaining both to one another and most importantly to their congressmen that the most important stand the United States has to take is to support Israel and Egypt in insisting on keeping Gaza’s borders closed in order to destroy Hamas through attrition, to prevent them, to starve them out, to prevent them from resupplying, to prevent them from rebuilding their infrastructure of terrorism that Israel has fought to destroy at such great cost to our soldiers over the past month," she said.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?

Bill O'Reilly joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday to discuss a recent House Homeland Security Committee briefing on the impact of the 9/11 terror attacks, during which "national security experts" claimed "right-wing" groups pose a greater threat to the United States than groups like the Taliban or Al-Qaeda.

Glenn played two video clips from the briefing that showed Senior Fellow Brookings Institute Center for Middle East Policy, Daniel Byman, and former National Intelligence Council Chair during the Obama administration, Christopher Kojm, in apparent agreement that "right-wing extremists" are a bigger threat to Americans today than "jihadists."

"I'm someone who has written extensively on both jihadist groups, but also right-wing, white supremacist groups," Byman says in the first video clip. "And in my mind, there's no question that today in the United States, the right-wing and white supremacist violence is a much greater risk."

"I agree with your assessment and those of my colleagues who have spoken already, there's little doubt that the domestic terrorist threat from white nationalists and right-wing extremist groups is greater than the jihadist threat today," Kojm states in the second clip.

"Who are those idiots?" O'Reilly exclaimed. "It's just unbelievable ... they're not even in the same universe. Yeah, there are bad neo-Nazi Americans running around, yeah, but there are very few of them. I mean, the jihadists are causing death and destruction, death and destruction all over the world. Not just in the United States. These people are so blatantly irresponsible and ignorant, it's just staggering."
