Talk show host Glenn Beck will address a Knesset committee during his visit to Israel.
Beck will discuss how to fight the delegitimization of Israel around the world at a July 11 meeting of the Knesset Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Affairs Committee at the invitation of the committee chairman, Danny Danon of the Likud Party, The Jerusalem Post reported Tuesday.
The meeting reportedly will focus on the September meeting of the United Nations General Assembly, when the Palestinians say they will ask for recognition of a Palestinian state.
Beck’s July visit, including his address to the Knesset committee, will be filmed for his online show, which will be used to promote his announced “Restoring Courage” rally to be held in Jerusalem in late August.
Herman Cain, a 2012 Republican presidential candidate, and U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) have said they will attend the rally.
The Jerusalem Post reported that Beck will visit Tamar Fogel, whose parents and three of her siblings were killed in March by Palestinian terrorists as they slept in their home in the West Bank community of Itamar. Beck devoted segments on three days of his Fox show to the incident in the wake of the massacre and spoke admiringly of Tamar.
His Fox show is set to be aired for the final time at the end of June.
