RAMALLAH, June 28 (JMCC) - Conservative media pundit Glenn Beck is planning to address a Knesset committee in July, the Jerusalem Post reported
Tuesday. The address will be televised.
Beck, whose program runs on Fox News in the United States, will visit the Knesset before a series of shows he is filming in Jerusalem in August culminating in a massive pro-Israel event at the Western Wall featuring US politicians.
“When we face an international wave of hatred of Israel and Jews – which is expressed in Facebook pages and films calling for our destruction – it’s good that Israel has talented friends that can contribute to our public-relations efforts,” [immigration committee chair Danny] Danon said.
The Likud MK added that the July 11 committee meeting with Beck will focus on September’s UN General Assembly, where the Palestinian Authority has said it will unilaterally declare statehood.
“September isn’t just a crisis,” Danon explained. “It’s an opportunity to explain to the world that we are not occupying anything.”
