    The former Fox News presenter Glenn Beck has addressed around 1,000 supporters at his controversial Restoring Courage rally in Jerusalem.

    The presence of protesters calling for the controversial right-winger to "go home" did not deter him, as he spoke against the backdrop of the Old City of Jerusalem.

    Mr Beck, known for strident remarks on topics from George Soros to Reform Judaism and the Utoya Island youth camp, has been in Israel for several days. Tuesday's event in Jerusalem was the final chapter in his Israel tour.

    In his speech, Mr Beck offered a special "courage" award to the members of the Fogel family who were brutally murdered in March.

    He said: "When the world turns its back on Israel and the Jewish people, the world turns its back on human rights.

    "Without the Jewish people, humanity would never know that every single individual life has dignity, that every single life is sacred."

    He added: "I will stand with the Jewish people and when they come to round us up again, I will say: take me first."

    Audience members included rabbis and politicians. Danny Danon, the MK who first invited Mr Beck to Israel, said at the event: "We are very proud to have such committed friends coming from all around the world to support Israel unconditionally."
