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.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
