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?

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."
