Glenn Beck is certainly a public figure in the USA, but leading is stretching it. At the core he's an entertainer, like Rush Limbaugh, John Hennity (sp?), John Savage, etc.. And being anti-Mormon, or "racist", as you put it has nothing to do with my disgust and derision of the pure, unadulterated crap that he spews. He's a medicine man, a panderer, a charlatan, who has somehow managed to bamboozle quite a few people. That anyone in Israel, at a personal level, much less at a government level would give this guy the time of day is beyond my comprehension.
