So what can YOU do to push back against religious persecution?

On last night's TV show, Glenn continued his interview with Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks of London, England. Glenn really wanted to know what people who are truly awake and truly dedicated to fighting anti-Semitism could do to make sure the horrors of the past never repeat themselves.

Glenn: You are talking to an audience now who has been through this. This is well-tilled soil here, and we have talked about these things for a long time. My audience is, I really, truly believe, one of the more dedicated groups of people to let’s be the righteous among the nations; however, I know I feel this way, and I’m sure the audience does. I bet there are people all over the world that feel this way—what do I do? What do I do?

Yes, I know. I know what’s happening in Egypt. I know what’s happening in Iraq. I know what’s happening in Afghanistan, in France, in England, in Germany, in Russia, what’s happening here. I know. We keep saying it. We keep talking. Rabbi, it’s such a huge problem. As I was thinking about this interview today, I thought I think this is going to be one of those interviews that people look back ten years, fifteen years from now and say, “They knew, people knew…what happened?” And what happened was we don’t know what to do.

Rabbi Sacks: Let me tell you what to do, Glenn. Here’s an event that had a huge impact on me, the Six Day War in 1967. I think it had a transformative effect on everyone in my generation, but we know one Jewish community that it had a huge impact on, the Jews of the Soviet Union as it was then called. You had a lot of Jews, Jewish life had been suppressed after the Russian Revolution, serious persecution of Jews under Stalin, and then suddenly having faced what looked like a second Holocaust, you know, Nasser spoke about driving Jews into the sea, and Israel was outnumbered and outgunned, and suddenly Israel wins this extraordinary victory in six days, and that whole Jewish public in Russia suddenly woke up and suddenly wanted to be Jewish and suddenly wanted to be free.

Many of them, as you know, wanted to go to Israel, and they were known as the Jews of silence, the Jews who couldn’t make their voice heard. I was a student in those days, so I know exactly what happened. Jews around the world picked this up, and they’re probably was not a single country that had any Jews that did not campaign for the Jews of Russia. There were vigils. There were prayer meetings. There were protests. There was a worldwide movement. Glenn, there are not many Jews in the world. We are one fifth, less than one fifth of 1% of the population of the world, but we let our voice be heard.

Today, if the Christian world which numbers minimally 2.2 billion people, pretty much a third of the people alive in the world today, if the Christian community were to join its voices in protest at the persecution of Christians in the Middle East, parts of Africa, in Pakistan and elsewhere, if the moderate Muslim community which represents, I suspect, something like 90% of the Muslim world which is itself 1.6 billion, if we were to join voices together and stop saying there’s nothing we can do, there is everything we can do.

If we were to get up and protest and say this cannot be right. Whichever way you believe, religion is telling us to love one another, not hate one another. Life is sacred. Life isn’t cheap the way ISIS pretends it is. This is not religion, this is desecration. If we were capable of saying that and doing so together, we could change the world.

Glenn: The yarmulke, the kippah…I read in the paper yesterday that in Europe people are starting to wear a hair kippah so it just looks like part of your hair, and I thought to myself well, that’s a way to be safe. And as I’m listening to you, we have to all stand up, is it right to wear that, to hide the fact who you are, or is it right to wear it because stay safe?

Rabbi Sacks: My late father used to sell schmattes in the English equivalent of the Lower Eastside. Do you know what schmattes are? Off-cuts of cloth. It’s the kind of thing poor Jews did. He came over from Poland as a refugee, didn’t have an education, had to leave school at the age of 14, and he was the kind of Jew that you knew of in New York in the Lower Eastside. As a young man, I remember once I was walking in the street coming back from the synagogue, and I was wearing my yarmulke in the street.

A very sweet gentleman who had been praying with us in the synagogue saw me wearing this and run up and said, “Mr. Sacks, I think your son has forgotten to take off his yarmulke.” You know, it was not the kind of thing you did in public. My father, you know, left school at the age of 14, he turned around to him and said, “No son of mine will ever be ashamed to let people know he’s a Jew.” That sentence changed my life, and I will never, as chief Rabbi of Britain, I never did, and I never would tell people don’t wear yarmulke in public. If people can’t live with us being who we are, they can’t live with us, full stop.

Glenn: Patriotic, you’re patriotic. You love England. You’re a former chief Rabbi of England. You’ve been knighted by the Queen, so we know your loyalty and everything else. Seeing what’s on the horizon, knowing what’s happened in the past, first question: If you could go back to the Jews in Germany and in Europe in 1933, what would you tell them to do? And then, here we are. I don’t know what here it is as history repeats itself, but it’s on that track. What do you tell the Jews in Europe? Do you tell them it might be best to leave, and how do they compare?

Rabbi Sacks: First of all, Britain is not an anti-Semitic country. There are elements, minorities, fringe minorities. This is not the 1930s. We are dealing with an Internet phenomenon where individuals can be globally radicalized. The 1930s, you had something called a national culture, so you could ask, has France got an anti-Semitic culture? Has Germany? Has Britain? And there were elements in Britain in the 1930s that were also anti-Semitic.

The big difference between Britain and mainland Europe was that it never entered the public domain. It never became a vote winner, and that was the big difference. And Britain to this day is one of the most tolerant societies on earth. I have to say that out of deep personal conviction, but there are radicalized individuals who are capable of doing a great deal of harm. Now, I say in the 1930s, anyone who could run, ran. In the 21st century, we stand and fight.

The big difference, of course, is today Jews have a home, a homeland in the land of Israel. In the 1930s, they had nowhere to go. So, I think this very existence of the state of Israel which is so fundamental to Jewish self-definition says that once we have that, we are no longer capable of being intimidated. A terrorist seeks to intimidate. I as a Jew and I hope you as a Christian refuse to be intimidated. We refuse to hand terrorists a victory.

Glenn: I refuse.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
