Glenn Beck announced Monday that his "Restoring Courage" rally will have to move locations because he fears than an assassination attempt may take place if he hold the rally at the Temple Mount, as he originally intended.
The Temple Mount is one of the holiest and most heavily contested religious sites in the world. Beck said on his Monday show that his security team informed him that holding a polarizing rally at the site might not be the best idea. He said that, because of some of the as-yet-to-be-announced guests who are planning to attend the rally, "some of the security services were getting a little nervous."
Beck brought up the assassination of former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, and said that he did not want to risk having anyone killed at his rally.
"Courage must be coupled with wisdom, and the last thing we want to happen is for anyone to be injured in any way, or there to be any kind of conflict," he said.
The rally is taking place August 24th in Jerusalem.
