Pro-Israel Organization Chooses to Honor Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck inadvertently flashing the a-okay Masonic handsign.

(Talk2Action) In July 2005, the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) presented Pat Robertson with its State of Israel Friendship Award at their "Salute to Israel" dinner. "We wouldn't do it," Abraham Foxman, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), told the New York City-based newspaper, The Forward, "He's not deserving, but I have no objections to other groups honoring him."

In May 2008, after it was revealed -- at the Talk To Action website -- that Pastor John Hagee had delivered a sermon stating that God sent Hitler to hunt the Jews and chase them to Israel, the ZOA issued a press release in defense of Hagee, calling him "a staunch friend and supporter of the State of Israel, of Zionism, and of the Jewish people."

Now, three-plus years later, on Sunday, November 20, one of the two featured speakers at the ZOA's 114th Anniversary Louis D. Brandeis Award Dinner will be Glenn Beck.

And the ZOA has chutzpah enough to lecture the Occupy Wall Street movement about anti-Semitism.

Perhaps hoping to drum up some publicity for its upcoming dinner, the ZOA has issued a press release calling for the president, Congress and other public officials to condemn incidents of anti-Semitism in the Occupy Wall Street movement.(Read more)

Based on the anti-Semitic actions of a few foolish people, and the rantings of David Duke, the ZOA is asking the President to condemn the anti-Semites for their offhanded remarks. What is actually happening here? Are all Jewish people being criticized, or was it just a few selected few?
  • In the article, Glenn Beck was criticized for pointing out the terrible acts of George Soros. Since he is a Jew, he's viewed as an anti-Semite.
  • If someone points out that we shouldn't be pouring money into Israel, that person is considered as an anti-Semite.
  • If one group of Christians believes that other Christians should not be assisting the political Zionist State of Israel, they are accused of being anti-Semitic.
Where will it all lead? Where will it end?
