Gov. Palin 'expected' to join Glenn Beck in Israel Aug. 24 (Updated)

Now is the time to Stand with Courage
Editor's note: Although this story says several GOP stars are 'expected" to attend this event, at least two of those named in the report - Romney and Gingrich - have no plans so far to be there. Until we hear comfirmation from Gov. Palin's camp, we won't just assume that she will attend. See update below)

According to a Ynet News report, Gov. Palin will again team up with Glenn Beck at a huge outdoor rally. Similar in concept to Beck's Restoring Honor Rally, which was held August 28, 2010 at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, Restoring Courage is scheduled for August 24, nearly one year later, at the Southern Wall Excavation site in Jerusalem:
This year, the Wailing Wall will replace Lincoln Memorial as the backdrop for the event, which will take place at Jerusalem's Old City and the Teddy Stadium simultaneously.

The multi-million dollar production is expected to be attended by a convoy of American dignitaries, including former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. US Senator Joe Lieberman, a Democrat, and Republicans Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Mike Huckabee and Congresswoman Michelle Bachman are to join Beck at the rally as well.
More here and here.

Update: Ynet's report seems to have been a bit premature regarding some of the GOP stars attending:
Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul told NRO that Romney has no plans to attend the rally.

Newt Gingrich spokesman R.C. Hammond told NRO that Newt Gingrich has neither ruled out attending nor confirmed that he will go.
