    So very, very sad. Any time someone expresses support for Israel the right wing in America and sadly in Israel as well, embraces them irregardless of how crazy the person is. Glenn Beck is a kook, a racist and conspiracy theorist and no Jew should ever welcome a person like him. Has Israel learned from its past? Israel embraced South Africa during the time of Apartheid and doing so was a horrible stain against Zionism and Judiasm and now Israel is embracing a man full of hate for Blacks, Gays, Hispanics, the Disabled, and anyone he does not agree with. As a Jew I am ashamed to see such a man welcomed to Israel. If you judge a nation by the people that nation calls its friends then Israel's embrace of Beck is no different than Syria's embrace of Hezbollah and Iran. If your choice of friends are people who are conspiracy theorists, liars, bigots, and fear mongers then you are telling the world how immoral your own cause and legitimacy is.
