Glenn Beck announces J'lem rally

Conservative US media figure plans on staging rally 'to restore courage' in Jerusalem in August

Conservative US media figure Glenn Beck will hold a rally to "restore courage" in Jerusalem this August, he announced on his radio show Monday.


Beck said the aim of the rally is to "stand together with Israel" and "to show the world what living a life of faith and honor really means," according to a statement on his website.


The rally is slated to be held one year after his "rally to restore honor" in Washington last August.



He warned that Israel, "center of our faith" was in danger because of the two-state solution.


"They are going to attack the center of our faith," he said. "Our common faith. And that is Jerusalem. And it won't be with bullets or bombs. It will be with a two state solution that cuts off Jerusalem, the old city, to the rest of the world."


"We have gone to the capitals of our states and to the capitals of our government," he continued. "We have talked to all the power brokers. The only power broker, the only seat of government that can and will solve this problem with or without us is God. It is time to return inside the walls that surround Jerusalem and stand with people of all faiths, all around the world."


"In August, whether I'm there with seven people or 10 people or there alone, I will be counted and I will stand," he said.


Beck asked his supporters to help him spread the word about the rally to Restore Courage.


"I ask you to join me," he said, during the radio announcement. "I also ask you to take this message globally, to take this to every corner of the earth. If you have family living overseas, this is not an America solution. This is a people of faith solution. This is a people all over the world solution. I ask you to help get this word out."
