08.25.11 | Sarah Harnisch

Conservative broadcaster Glenn Beck is in Israel this week where he held a "Restoring Courage" event last night in Jerusalem.  Presidential hopeful Herman Cain went to Israel for the event, making him the only Republican presidential contender to attend.  Speaking after Beck's big rally on Wednesday, Cain said many Jewish people in America feel like President Obama has let them down, but that won't happen if he becomes president. Cain said "my doctrine is real simple. If you mess with Israel, you're messing with the United States of America. That's how strongly I feel about the relationship between the United States and Israel." Thousands of American Evangelical Christians listened to beck at the southern wall excavation site near the Temple Mount.
