Glenn Beck talks during his 'Restoring Courage' rally in an archaeological park in Jerusalem's Old City,, Israel, August 24, 2011."In Israel there is more courage in one small square mile than in all of Europe," Beck said at the rally. "In Israel there is more courage in one soldier than in the combined cold hearts of all the bureaucrats in the United Nations. In Israel you can find people standing against incredible odds against the entire tide of world opinion just because it's right, just because it's just and just because it's good."

Media reports described the crowd at the event as in large part made up of American Christians. Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and Likud lawmaker Danny Danon were among the event's speakers.
