"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.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
