Glenn Beck Heads 'Rally to Restore Courage' in Israel

Michael Caulfield/WireImage(JERUSALEM) -- Controversial former Fox News talk show host and radio personality Glenn Beck has been in Israel all week, leading a number of rallies to show his support for the Jewish State.

The finale will come Wednesday night in Jerusalem's old city, in a rally being dubbed "Rally to Restore Courage."

Beck has billed the last rally as an event where people of all faiths will pledge their support for Israel and the Jewish people.  But his audience Wednesday night will mainly be American evangelical Christians and other conservatives.

Some Israeli politicians and many in the public find Beck too controversial to support. Beck recently implied social protesters in Israel were communists.

Others don't trust the man who gave credence to Jewish conspiracy theories and wonder if he's using Israel to restore his image after the rocky end of his cable news career.
