"We need to defend the truth that Israel is the only reliable ally the U.S. has in the Middle East," said Netanyahu via satellite. "When you support Israel, you don’t have to choose between your interests and your values; you get both ... Our enemies think that we are you, and that you are us: and you know something? They are absolutely right!"

Both Hagee, founder and chairman of CUFI, and Beck addressed a crowd of more than 5,000 for the close of the summit.

"We gathered here with one message, said Hagee. "Israel today, Israel tomorrow, and Israel forever.”

Hagee also condemned President Obama's suggestion that Israel revert to the 1967 borders to broker peace with its Arab neighbors.

"The Jewish people are not occupying the land of Israel, they own the land of Israel," said Hagee. "America should never pressure Israel to give up land for peace, not for any reason, not to anyone, ever ... If the US Administration forces Israel to divide Jerusalem, God will turn his back to the United States of America. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is watching, America."

"Israel is the canary in the coal mine," said Beck. "If Israel goes away, so does our Western way of life. We have to stand up for Israel. This is a test of our lives and of our civilization. We must do it not because it will bring in the Messiah, or give us more baptisms, but because we love our fellow man and because it defends our way of life."

Beck also plans to return to Israel in August for his "Restoring Courage" rally.

"We mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor," said Beck, who then quoted from the book of Ruth: "To our Jewish friends, 'intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God'" (Ruth 1:16).

  1. But Glenn Beck's god is NOT the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; and as a Mormon, he fundamentally believes in another Jesus, not the only begotten Son of God Who is one with the Father.  John Hagee's inclusion of Beck on this platform is another indication of his ecumenical leanings, thereby making him a danger to true born again believers.  For...false prophets will arise...to deceive, if possible, even the elect.   Mormonism is completely replacement in its theology, therefore, Beck's sudden interest in Israel and very public alignment with them should be considered highly suspect by any discerning believer.

    • Amen~!

  3. You know what? I was born and raised Catholic most of my entire life. I still attend a Catholic church but attend a non-denominational church as well. Of course growing up, some of my Christian friends would make "Jew Jokes" and never actually understood them. Then one day, I read the Old Testament. Come to find out, I AM JEWISH!....Well, the reason I say that is I pray nightly to a one time Jewish Carpenter I happen to call my GOD, MY LORD and MY Father and Lord Jesus Christ, the ONLY son of GOD.  I have come to find out that Jews and Christians have MANY of the same beliefs. And although the USA and Israel have there moments the way allies do, I have YET to read a Bible or Torah that calls for the extermination of another faith. Keep in mind that Islam worships Muhammad, a known pedophile, mass murderer, rapist, and a polygamist.  Who OPENLY tells his "flock" to kill in the name of Allah (by the way, there IS NO ALLAH, only GOD so do not get confused. I dont pray to the same G. that muslims do. I will keep it that way until I get a message from GOD or JESUS CHRIST themselves to go out and KILL IN THEIR NAME.....

    • Dear One It's Jerusalem ~ Not Rome

      "The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel." Joel 3:16

      Be Blessed Beloved

      "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee." Psalm 122:6

      Love, Joe
