    Brilliant piece. Thank you so much, Ms. Tabachnick. The "Beck phenomenon" is a classic case of "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." But here, by getting in bed with Beck, rightists and rightist MKs are sleeping with the enemy. If anyone is open-minded and willing to deal with reality, I urge you to go to YouTube and enter "Glenn Beck Jews Killed Jesus." You can see the underlying hatred for Jews that Beck reveals when he repeats that ancient canard that we killed Jesus. This dangerous charlatan who masquerades as a friend of Jews and Israel is, in fact, an anti-Semite. He promotes the work of a Nazi sympathizer who called Eisenhower "Ike the kike" and Kennedy's New Frontier the "Jew Frontier." He makes almost daily obscene Holocaust analogies. "Holocaust this." "Holocaust that." If EVERYTHING is the Holocaust, then NOTHING is the Holocaust. This is a very dangerous, evil man, full of hate for minorities AND for Jews. And the right embraces him. It is so frightening. This is a very, very dark, shameful experience for Israel.
