About three dozen activists from Peace Now held a protest outside the Glenn Beck rally in the Old City of Jerusalem on Wednesday evening, where they called for the right-wing American broadcaster to leave Israel and take his message elsewhere.

Holding signs saying “Go Beck Home”, “Peace Takes Courage”, and “Glenn, take your hate Beck”, they gathered outside the Dung Gate in Jerusalem, only a few dozen meters from where Beck was holding the last of his three “Restoring Courage” rallies in Israel.

Jerusalemite Danielle Blumenstyk, 25, said that she came to the protest because “we think Glenn Beck is a racist and an extremist. He claims to be a friend of Israel but he is only causing more and more damage to Israel’s image in the world.”
