    There are more than enough people on this planet who hate Jews for little or no logical reason. Far too many Jews themselves have joined the self-hating, blame Israel first bandwagon, mainly due to mainstream media who will support Israel only when it gives things away. Give away your heritage, give away your legitimate rights, give away your Jewish roots. And so it was immediately after Oslo. But when it comes to an Israel which stands behind Jewish issues, most dive for cover. This makes no sense. Surely there can be pro-Jewish issues that deserve support? It appears not. Please correct me if I am wrong. Glenn Beck has broken that mold and this has upset the comfort zone of those who have dominated the agenda. The type of support Glenn Beck is offering to Israel is unprecedented. Israel has far too much of that "other" type of support that has resulted in many American Jews doubting the very legitimacy of Israel. At the very least, it is possible that many of these Jews will awaken to another side of the story and will support Israel from a position of knowledge. Glenn Beck has caused many Jews to re-examine, and in some cases, examine for the first time, other sides to the conflict. This is a good thing, as Beck tries to back up his positions using extensive research, facts and direct quotes. Jews always need to be awake. In the same way that Beck likes to question and present facts, so Jews should continue to be vigil and ask hard questions. At this point in time Beck should be given the benefit of the doubt, especially by those Jews who claim to love Israel.
