The Road to World War 3: Netanyahu's appeal to the U.S. parallels a near-genocide of the Jewish people

History always repeats itself, and Glenn believes that the world now stands on the precipice of World War 3. But the patterns playing out today don't just tie back to the 1930s and 40s, but in fact go much, much deeper. For anyone with an understanding of Biblical history, the story of Esther and Mordecai is repeating itself on the world stage as Netanyahu appeals to the United States to stop negotiating with Iran.

In the Bible, a Jewish woman named Esther marries the gentle king of Persia. The king's Prime Minister, Haman, develops a plan to kill all of the Jews in Persia, including Esther's cousin Mordecai. Thankfully, Mordecai uncovers the plot and convinces Esther to appeal to the king on behalf of her people to stop the genocidal plans. She succeeds and the Jews are allowed to defend themselves from the Persians who try to kill them. This story is chronicled in the Book of Esther and celebrated during Purim.

"Mordecai went and spoke to Esther, and said to Esther, 'The king is about to kill all of the Jews. You have a position. You can talk him out of this. You can stop this'," Glenn said. "Haman is a bad guy, and he has the ear of the king. And because the king is listening to Haman, he is going to kill all the Jews."

Glenn sees the same story playing out today. Persia/Haman is now modern-day Iran, looking to wipe out the Jews. The king is President Obama and/or Congress, faced with a choice between Esther and Haman. Benjamin Netanyahu is Mordecai warning of the coming destruction of the Jews. And the American people are Esther, the only one listening to the warnings of Mordecai, and the one with the power to stop the genocide to come.

"If history repeats itself, this week, who is Mordecai? I believe Mordecai is Benjamin Netanyahu. I believe Haman is Iran. Persia. I don't know if the king is Barack Obama or the Congress. But I believe the American people are Esther. And it is why President Obama is trying so desperately to get people to not listen to this speech. He has asked the Democrats to walk out, 34 Democrats have walked out of this speech," Glenn said.

"Will the United States accept the fact that we were born for a time such as this?" he asked.

Glenn also showed how the patterns of World War 2 are playing out again. He explained what he means when he said we are approaching World War 3 and the dangers of a Russia/Iran alliance. Scroll past the video for a rush transcript of the full segment.

When I say World War III. What was World War II really all about? It was the national socialists that wanted to control the world, but they wanted to start with nation states. And then the communists that wanted the workers of the world to unite. Both were communist, if you will, both were socialist. Okay? But one was, let's dominate the entire world under the workers. The other was, no, Germany, a nation state will take over the world and we'll do it state I by state. So national socialists over global communists. What happened? Those two go to war with each other. That was the first thing.

Germany hated the communists examine and the communists hated the national socialists. And so that was the real strife at the beginning. At first they came for the communists. That's how that poem started. At first they came for the communists. And I didn't say anything because I wasn't a communist. It ends with, then they came for the Jews. Then there was nobody left to stand up. So they first started going against each other. We picked sides. We said the Nazis were bad.

First, we refused to even say the Nazis were bad. Many people in our own country and in western Europe said the Nazis are okay. Many of the hierarchy up in England said the Nazis were okay because they really truly believed that the Nazis would leave the nobility with their wealth. Where they knew the communists would come and take it all. That wasn't true, as we later found out.

So we had to decide. And we chose the communists are better than the Nazis. In the end, they weren't. But they were the lesser of two evils. And so we decided to side with the communists.

So World War II goes on, and just before they lose, Germany goes down, and they plant the seeds of Naziism. Now, this is where I think it becomes Satanic. Not that they weren't Satanic to begin with. This is where I see the long-term play of Satan. The Nazis go down to the Middle East and they start playing footsy with the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Mufti of Persia, and they plant all this anti-Semitism. They plant the Protocols of Zion. They plant all of these things and stir everybody up. And it is so effective, that Persia changes its name to Iran. In Persian, Iran means Aryan. They go and give it as a gift to Hitler and say, this is our gift to you. We are the Aryan Nation.

So the reason why I say this is World War III because Russia is rearing her ugly head. Tonight at TV at 5:00, it's critical to watch this. There's two sides to this coin. First, there is the Russian fascism that is growing. There was murder of one really, really important guy in Russia on Saturday. And an arrest of his partner. And nobody in the west is talking about this.

This is -- as crazy as the -- as the caliphate theory was, and I'm telling you, if you want to understand what's coming, you need to watch this. Everybody now is concentrating on the caliphate, we're looking at the other shoe drop. It is, if you will, the communists much World War II. They have gone fascist now, but they are planting themselves in Italy and in France and in Germany. And what happened this weekend is a very important step of growth for them, and a very frightening one.

And the world is going to have to choose again. And I would suggest that we choose neither. The world is going to have choose. They're going to say, do we side with the fascists? And Europe will choose the fascists. Or do we choose ISIS? And much of the world will choose ISIS. Those will be your Axis and Allied powers. The question is, where does the United States fall?

The president has already played footsy with Putin. Giving me more space and when I have the election, I'll have more room to maneuver. He's already played footsy with him. But now we've pissed them off. Are we choosing the fascist side?

The president has also played footsy -- they're playing now footsy with Iran. We're going behind the back of Congress, behind the back of Israel, behind the back of all of our allies, and we are negotiating a treaty with Iran. A country that is part and parcel with this idea that they can vaporize Israel in order to bring back the promised one, in order to bring about Armageddon. Those are not my words. Those are their words.

This is where World War II left off. World War II, Hitler comes down, and he plants all of this sick ideology. But what he doesn't know, or maybe he does, is that their ideology fits now part and parcel with their theological belief that they will play a role in the battle of Armageddon.

Our battle of Armageddon is Gog and Magog. If you know anything about ancient history, that is Persia and Russia. Russia and Persia are together. The United States is now siding with Persia. Russia and Persia are together.  The United States is now siding with Persia.  The reason I keep calling it Persia is to give you the remembrance of Hitler changed it to Iran.  But also, this is the week that Mordecai in biblical history, Mordecai went and spoke to Esther, and said to Esther, the king is about to kill all of the Jews.  You have a position.  You can talk him out of this.  You can stop this.

Haman is a bad guy, and he has the ear of the king.  And because the king is listening to Haman, he is going to kill all the Jews.

Now, who -- if history repeats itself, this week, who is Mordecai?  I believe Mordecai is Benjamin Netanyahu.  I believe Haman is Iran.  Persia.

I don't know if the king is Barack Obama or the Congress.  But I believe the American people are Esther.  And it is why President Obama is trying so desperately to get people to not listen to this speech.  He has asked the Democrats to walk out, 34 Democrats have walked out of this speech.  It happens today at 11:00 p.m. central, 12 o'clock eastern.  We are going to play it in its entirety at 8:00 p.m. tonight for you to be able to watch it with some analysis afterwards.  But it is critical that you watch it.  Because the forces arrayed against it are astronomical.

Have you ever seen a speech that hasn't been given get this much attention?  I mean, the last speech I saw get this much attention before it was given, was 8/28.  Do you remember the buildup of 8/28?  For months they talked about what a hate speech that would be.  How dangerous it would be.  And then once it was given, if America would have listened to it, it could have actually changed the course.  And I do believe it did change the course with many people.  It had its desired outcome, I believe, for the Lord.

You need to make an appointment to be able to see this speech tonight because the question is:  Will you, like Esther, accept the fact -- will the United States accept the fact that we were born for a time such as this?

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."
