i dont know much of who he is but it is on Torah cafe. Torah cafe is a power house for Judaism. At the end of his speech i was in tears, especially the part when he said as he was leaving Aushowitz he drove down the street and saw all those churches he started screaming, "where were you, where were you!!! Did you not see or smell the bodies!!!" He was very emotional during his speech and when he called upon all of us to remember what and who we stand for. I really was moved and hope you do watch this video.

Glenn Beck has made such a habit of using Holocaust and Hitler arguments as scare tactics on his show, either to talk about how badly Christians and/or conservatives in America are discriminated against or to try and paint the Obama administration as a bunch of Nazis (or is it Socialists? Beck has a hard time making up his mind on that one) that I have no interest in listening to a single thing he has to say on the subject of the Shoah. In fact, I find it pretty disgusting that he would presume to hold forth on that at all, given the way he's trotted it out on numerous occasions to leverage it as a scare tactic.

I've already been too blunt about my thoughts on him, probably, but... no. Not for me, thanks.

No, you haven't said to much! I avoid Glenn Beck and all others like him.

So what religion is he? I thought he was a christian? I dont know who he is other than this video on Torah Cafe. Using the holocaust as a scare tactic to what? I personally think that subject is still a reality. My sister who graduated last year from a christian university went in sympathetic and then one day started emailing me how the Jews destroys america , how they own the media, and to get over the holocaust. I was what the? Even last week as we watched tv she blurted out that the Jews have all the money and the banks. What are they teaching? We got into it, she thinks she knows Judaism because she took a few semesters in religion and sat in a shul for observations. I just know what is happening here as far as attitude towards Judaism, and what is going on in the middle east. He doesnt need to scare me, I see it and feel it.

He is a conservative christian who is paranoid and full of conspiracy theories. He used to have a show on Fox network. Here is an opinion about him that was in the Washington post.

He has had anti semitic views on Jews which makes me question his current good feelings towards Israel.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/07/15/glenn-beck-jews-killed-je_n_648134.html

You can google him to get more information. But I am not convinced he is any friend to Jews much less Israel.

As a Jew I am afraid but I know that there will always be folks who hate Jews just because they are Jews. That will not ever change. Anti-Semitism is a reality.

I don't need the Conservative Christians of this world to tell me of the danger of Iran.

He's Mormon. I used to listen to him about 6 or 7 years ago before he was really popular (when I was more politically conservative). He was funny. Over the years he's gotten loony, paranoid and ridiculous.

He wasn't on TV very long. I listened to him on the radio. I was done with him by the time he got his television show. I believe he still has a radio show?

I'm sure he does, Dena. Even with his drop in ratings, he still has a loyal core of "Beck-bots" to keep him employed.

I think the one of the reasons he "stands up" for the Jewish people is because it helps with his own religion.

If Judaism wasn't part of his religious beliefs, I'm not so sure he could care less about us.
