ISIS militant converts to Christianity after witnessing love, compassion, forgiveness

On radio Monday morning, Glenn shared the story of an ISIS militant who pretended to be a refugee in order to kill Christian workers. After seeing the love of Christians at the camps, the fighter from northern Syria abandoned his plans and converted to Christianity himself.

"There is only one way to win," Glenn said. "Lincoln knew it. Bonhoeffer knew it. Gandhi knew it. Martin Luther King knew it. There is only one way to win, and that is to be a moral and decent and loving and forgiving people. Period."

GLENN: An ISIS militant who pretended to be a refugee in order to kill people converted to Christianity, quote, after seeing the love of Christians at the camps. An ISIS fighter from northern Syria veiled as a refugee, arrived in a Jordanian camp with the intention of killing Christian workers. But he abandoned his plans after hearing the Gospel and witnessing the love of the Christians.

I just want you to put this into context here of, what have we been saying? There is only one way to win. Only one way to win.

Lincoln knew it. Bonhoeffer knew it. Gandhi knew it. Martin Luther King knew it. There is only one way to win. And that is to be a moral and decent and loving and forgiving people. Period.

A humble people.

He saw how a host of Islam -- he saw first how Islam brainwashed him about Christianity and how it contrasted with the reality of what he saw in the Christians. This according to the ministry director who would not be named. We're talking about an area of Jordan that has three branches of Sunni Islam mosques, and they raise people up to go out and fight. The militant convert was so excited about his new faith. He was told by the director, he had to calm down to dispel the threats he had been receiving from other jihadists who wanted to kill him after his conversion.

The situation, in some UN-operated refugee camps in Jordan, are often violent, according to the director. ISIS fighters are disguising themselves as refugees in order to kill people and sell women and girls. The Muslim gangs are coming in as refugees. But they have agendas. They're like the Mafia. They kill people inside the camps, and the refugees are afraid to say that they saw somebody get killed. If you ask them, they say, "I don't know. I was asleep." The last time I went inside a camp, he added, I had a policeman with me. The camps are dangerous because they have ISIS and Iraqi militias. And Syrian militias. It's just another place for gangs. They're killing inside the camps, and they're buying and selling women and even girls.

Now, that's the bad news. The good news is the beginning of this story. This is not the first time that I've heard this story. I've heard this from the people who are on the ground for us. That are saying, "Something is happening." People who are Islamic are seeing ISIS, and they're seeing the hatred, and they're seeing then the love and the strength of the Christians who are forgiving these people. And they're saying, "If this is what Islam is and this is what Christianity is, I'm with these guys."

Do you remember what I've said for years about what Martin Luther King knew? If you put good versus evil side by side, people will pick good most times.

When the world goes insane, they will be so starving for good -- because most of us are alike. Not all of us. But most of us are alike. We want to be left alone. We don't hate other people. We just want to raise our family. And we want to live in a community where we all feel safe.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
